Cut Carbs 2 Times and Bee Lovin’

Ben and I were fighting yesterday and are in the post-fight “I really love you and want to see you every second of the day because I said shitty things and want to make sure you don’t leave me” phase. (Wait, is that just me?) So, we met for a picnic lunch near his work. IMG_8089 (800x600)

Ben packed his lunch this morning and brought us some Diet. Dr. Peppers. He knows how to woo me Winking smileIMG_8087 (600x800)

Diet Discussion: I read this snippet in Fitness Rx for Women that says Low carb diets work at first, but people can’t stick to them long term (no shit).

I’m waiting for the study that shows cutting carbs 2 days a YEAR works…
