It's a good thing I'm a scientist,

because that was yet another failed experiment and it's time to regroup and try again.

So I have this whoel eating plan set out for last week. It involves lots more protein than I normally eat. I was aiming for 40% of my calories from protein and I averaged 30%. My carb consumption stayed up around 30-50% but I was exhausted. By Wednesday I thought I wasn't going to make it through the day so I threw everything to the wind and just started eating. I felt much better almost immediately. I really don't understand it but I can't argue with how I felt. So it's back to the beginning.

Today is WW so I'll go and face the music. Afterwards I'm thinking of going for a trail run. Now I haven't been on a trail since I sprained my ankle on May 14th. I'm a little apprehensive about it but I need to get over it so today is the day. I know I'll be super careful.

As for my weight issues I really don't know what to do at this point. I guess I'm just going to count points and eat right and exercise and just keep it up. I know that if I follow the program eventually the weight will come off so I just have to be patient. I will eat more protein because I don't get enough.

Well, I probably should get moving.....
