Atkins Diet Week Two is Less But More

I spent week two of the Atkins Diet on the road with a trip to Fort Lauderdale, FL for work. Hotel life for a few days.

That presented a couple of roadblocks for me: there were challenges with eating as healthy as I would at home, and I ended up with three days of no exercise.

Even with the disrupted week, I managed to drop three more pounds, though I had anticipated it would be a bigger loss.

Then again, it was not a complete surprise, because I had some bourbon, which does not have carbs, but it still slows down weight loss.

No carbs = no beer. So a Jim Beam and Diet Coke it is. #atkins

Also, while I think I ate healthy, sometimes there could be hidden carbs in restaurant food.

Either way, I am home for the next week, so I can exercise on a regular schedule and eat homemade meals.
