I’m am currently writing this from my bed, surrounded by cough syrup and buried in blankets, so please bare with me as I try to summon my strength to write this. Some sentences may not make sense, blame it on the cough syrup and the lack of food in my body.

Being a carb-lover, imagine my reaction when I had to go on a low carb diet last October. I thought it would be impossible for me to sustain a low carb diet, mostly because I love carbs so much.

It’s early in the morning. You wake up. Move around between your sheets, trying to find the motivation to get out of bed. You throw the covers off your legs and sit up on the side of your mattress.

You stumble out of bed and somehow find yourself in the bathroom. You do your business and then walk up to the sink, to wash your face and wake yourself up. Every leg you move or finger you lift feels heavy, as if you’re carrying ten pounds of extra weight.

This day is shaping up to be a pain.
