Day 34: Simple Low Carb Meals


 

I don’t have anything exciting to share with you today. πŸ˜› I still weigh 148.6 pounds. I didn’t eat anything interesting yesterday. Well there was one thing, but it’s truly not all that interesting…

I’m totally wiped out this weekend after such a crazy busy week. My body is feeling it too! I’m a little puffy and stiff, so just taking it easy this weekend.

To give you a quick recap: I walked on Tuesday, hiked on Wednesday, did the carnival on Thursday, danced at a concert on Friday – and all four days I pushed those things to the MAX lol.

I racked up some serious steps on my Fitbit this week. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 34 of the β€œGet Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s not too late to join us if you haven’t already!

Day 34: Saturday’s Low Carb Meals

I had my favorite low carb breakfast: 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese and 4 small diced strawberries = 5 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.

For lunch I just heated up two Oscar Mayer zero carb smokies and dipped them in mustard. With “something green” of course. πŸ˜› πŸ™„ lol…

I got busy later in the evening so I just had two more of those for dinner. At that point though… I didn’t feel so great. The two more smokies didn’t settle so well. I sort of felt like I had indigestion, like I needed to burp but couldn’t or something. And a little nauseous at one point. Who knows why, probably rushed eating or something.

Anyway, I ate a (plain) dinner roll later that evening – because it was sitting on the counter at a friend’s house, and because it seemed like it might settle my stomach.

My advice: Just log it and keep on trucking. πŸ˜›

After that all sorts of thoughts ran through my head. Like: “I might as well have a mocha frappe and french fries now.” (lol) I did not. I had 1/4 cup of pecan halves for a snack later and just went to bed.

My son is in for the weekend with his girlfriend, plus both of their dogs πŸ™‚ so I have a full house. Slim is excited to have 4-legged friends to play with! It should make for a great day, along with our amazing weather here in Tennessee.

My daughter took a new job recently and has to work today (she’s an 8 hour round trip away) so we’re going to get together on her free day this week.

I still have in mind the off-plan meal I’d like to enjoy at some point, but I still haven’t worked up any real desire for it. If I remember right, that meal will still keep me under 100 carbs for the day – though it does always knock me out of ketosis.

I feel like I’m not in ketosis anymore anyway. I’m not sure why, but I definitely don’t feel “keto lean” right now. So maybe I should go for it and do a total reset. Hmm. I’ll think on that!

How’s your weekend going?

Happy Mother’s Day to you & your family! πŸ™‚

    I’m looking for the best tasting, least bitter, liquid sweetener with no carbs, no calories. I have even heard of some with fiber. Names? Sites? Costs?

    Thanks! LOVE your site. One of the most helpful out here!
