Somewhere along the way of a salon appointment and pub quiz, I picked up a monster headache and am now trying to assuage it with tea before I fall asleep. However, I ate basically not a single carb today, so I think this is okay. I'll do two workouts tomorrow.
The reason I'm being so ridiculous about carbs right now is basically the same sentiment Arwen expressed, i.e. it will be easier to lift, pull, and drag myself through this Tough Mudder if I'm lifting, pulling, and dragging fewer pounds. We're in serious cut mode here. No carbs, no dairy. Bam.
