Day 79: Low Carb Meals & Weight Loss


 

 

Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 79 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s NEVER too late to join if you haven’t already!

Note: I haven’t set a date for the next 90 Day Low Carb Challenge yet, but the group stays open & active year round. Join in and stay tuned!!


 

After going THREE days in a row without a workout, I had to just “stop, drop & roll” yesterday – and force myself to do 100 rolls on my Ab Carver Pro. 😛

Geez it’s tough to make something new a habit, and SO easy to slip OUT of a new habit!

I’m seriously determined though. I want to get in AMAZING shape this year, so I’m going to do what it takes…

Oh – and I have a shocking announcement to make: I did not eat ANY pecans yesterday! (lol) My scales finally moved again too. 🙂 Only a bit. I’ve been 144.8 for just over a week (8 days), and today I weighed in at 144.4 pounds.

Day 79: Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals

For breakfast I made a quick one skillet meal of sausage & fried eggs. I just fry the eggs in the same skillet as the sausage. Super easy!

Zero Carb Breakfast

Eggs are .4 carbs each, so 2 eggs are 1 carb total. Most people count meat & eggs as “zero carb” though because it’s a negligible amount, but I’m a stickler for tracking. 🙂

For lunch I had the leftovers from Joe’s dinner the night before. It’s just baked chicken breast, broccoli & cauliflower cooked in Campbell’s cream of chicken w/ herbs. Very simple dish, and tasty!

Low Carb Dinner

Around dinner I was hungry but not in the mood to cook or make food, so I just had some berries & cream cheese with almonds. It doesn’t look very pretty because my frozen raspberries got all clumped together lol… but it tasted delicious! It’s 2 ounces of cream cheese, 1/4 cup frozen raspberries and 1 ounce of sea salt almonds:

Easy Low Carb Treat

Then I had a spoonful of peanut butter late last night. That plus the cream cheese put me way over my 20 net carbs. Who am I kidding?! It’s the coffee creamer that did it 🙄 lol…

The Net Carbs Hack for MyFitnessPal isn’t working right for some reason…

Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Tuesday:

MyFitnessPal Low Carb Food Diary

Calories: 1521
Net Carbs: 28
Total Carbs: 36
Protein: 107 Grams
68% Fat, 24% Protein

Exercise: Ab Carver Pro (100 Reps)
PLUS: 10 Tricep Dips
FitBit Steps: 2,410
Water: 72 ounces

Here’s how you do the Tricep Dips:

 

I’m trying to do 10 Tricep Dips every single day, and want to move to 20 – and am doing 100 rolls on the Ab Carver too. But I really need to watch my carb count. I’m getting slack with that lately and it’s creeping up closer to 30 net carbs here and there. 😛 At least I’m getting plenty of protein, lots of healthy fats, plenty of water, and some berries & veggies in there… and no donuts. 🙂 lol

It was nice to see my scales move again, even though I’m committed to just eating healthy and toning up as my main focus (vs weight loss). It’s a good sign that I’m on the right track though, as I do still have body fat to lose.

How are things going on your end?

Are you feeling MOTIVATED? Are you happy with your weight loss so far? Are you struggling to stay on track? I’d love to hear from you!

    I’m happy to hear that your net carb hack on MFP is acting up also. I was thinking it was just my computer. Hopefully they get it resolved soon.

      Hi Kimme,

      Others said you just have to turn the plugin off and then back on again and it works fine. I’ll test that on mine in a bit – I’m getting ready to head out the door for my weekly hike! 🙂

      • Kimme says:

        I’m not sure how to do that. When you do it later, can you post the steps? No rush. 🙂

        • Lynn Terry says:

          It depends on which browser you have (I’m on another computer right now) but the tampermonkey addon should have an icon – or go to your browser settings > addons — and disable it or turn it off. Then turn it back on again.

          If that doesn’t work, uninstall & reinstall. 🙂

    You are so motivating! I am doing very well with what I eat. Down 49 pounds since March 1st. I have not had any off plan eating the entire time, which is huge for me as I have struggled with my weight since I was in 3rd grade. But I do not exercise at all….I just really hate to sweat! But reading your blog everyday is motivating me to try something. We have several upcoming camping trips planned, so I know I will get some exercise. But I need to do something daily. Thanks so much for your continued inspiration, I read your blog everyday while eating my keto friendly breakfast.

      Hi Bren 🙂

      Instead of cardio & sweating, try toning instead. I really FEEL my ab workout and tricep dips, but I can do all of those (110 total) while HALF a pot of coffee is brewing. 🙂 Of course I worked up to the 100 ab reps, but I still *hardly* break a sweat doing it!

      Toning and weight/strength training will get you the results you want quicker than cardio or walking anyway. 🙂 Although I still enjoy my walks & hikes too!

    A while back you stated you were working on your legs also…what are you doing for toning your legs.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Sherri,

      For my legs I am doing brisk walks, rock climbing & hiking. I find the hiking to be the most fun and easiest – and my legs are shaping up FAST with muscle tone!

      See: http://www.travelinglowcarb.com/category/fitness-exercise/ for some examples 🙂

      I also love caving, but that’s a cross between hiking and rock climbing, with tons of big rocks to navigate and up/down for the legs.

      Even our most tame “State Park” hikes are great for the legs because natural terrain works so many more muscle groups than just walking downtown like I normally do.
