this past week I have been dying for a plate of pasta -- be it spaghetti, lasagna, mac and cheese, as long as it was pasta. I couldnt understand why i have this craving where I have become slightly out of character (i.e. I was getting depressed because I thought i was losing control of myself and my diet, my workouts suck and i thought its because i was depressed, i was reading tons and tons if articles about food recipes, i had strong temptations to just eat everything in sight, and started smoking again to stave off these cravings.)

I should have known better.

My glycogen stores are depleted and I needed carbs in my system. I just upped my cardio and increased intensity in my weight training so naturally my glycogen will be gone.

So, I had a much needed cheat day today. This is my first cheat meal since implementing my diet plan (which is a cutting(low-carb) diet). Now, since this is my cheat meal I only increased my intake of protein, complex and fibrous carbs. I also had a red velvet cupcake for indulgence. I am now starting to think I did this cheat meal thing all wrong. I should have eaten more carbs than protein to refuel my glycogen stores, i should have had my cheat at the end of the day to control overdoing it.

well, lesson learned. I will do better next time.
