Weight Loss and Slow Carb

So, no big change in weight (and I weighed myself after a large glass of water!), but I’ve lost 3.5″ overall, which is a huge encouragement.

I’m VERY excited that Tim Ferriss’ new book “The 4-Hour Body” is finally out. I’ve almost finished reading it, and wow, there’s some GREAT stuff in there. I have his “Kindle” version on my iPod as well as the audiobook, and I’m waiting for my hard copy to arrive in the mail! This is going to be a “text book” for my fitness goals alongside Phil Maffetone’s “The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing

Tom and I have started with his Slow Carb diet which is just a slight variation of what we’ve been doing now, and to keep the weight loss consistent, we also get to add a binge day every week, which is going to be fun! If you want a very brief overview, check out his article: How to Lose 20 lbs. of Fat in 30 Days… Without Doing Any Exercise The book goes into much more detail, but the article will get you started.

After we’re in a comfortable place with that, I’ll be working through Tim Ferriss’ chapter on body alignment called “Pre-Hab: Injury-Proofing the Body” and then I’ll be working through his endurance chapters: “Ultraendurance I: Going from 5K to 50K in 12 Weeks—Phase I and Phase II”

And then, who knows? The book has LOTS of fun stuff in it and while some of it doesn’t appeal to me, much of it is fascinating! I highly recommend getting yourself a copy if you’re even partially interested in living your best physical self.

In fact, next week I’ll be giving away a signed, hard-cover copy! Watch for news on that!

Otherwise, I’m in a good routine with my exercise, and I’m enjoying the treadmill. Good stuff.
