And of course now my Low Carb Group is down, which we’re still working on. 🙄
I hope you’ve had a better week than mine, lol. Hopefully this update finds you enjoying a FUN holiday week! 🙂
If you’re participating in the Year-End Low Carb Challenge, today is our Week 7 Weigh-In…
I can’t post a weigh-in thread in the Low Carb Challenge Facebook Group, so you can simply check in here by leaving a comment below.
I weighed in this morning at 135.6 pounds, a new all-time low for me. 🙂 I’ve been “hovering” around 137 for weeks on end. This time last year I was 156-158 pounds, and it feels GREAT to be more than 20 pounds lighter!!
I’ll share some of low carb meals from the last week with you to give you some low carb food ideas, whether you’re eating out or eating in. I’ve been staying on track, eating simple, and enjoying the results…
Low Carb Meals:
Lately I’ve been starting most days with this healthy “low carb cereal” which is a combination of delicious foods: 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries and 1/4 cup (25 grams) of Chunky Musli.
One of my favorite low carb take-out meals is from Gondola Pizza & Steak House. It’s grilled chicken smothered with bacon & cheese, with roasted broccoli and cauliflower plus sauteed mushrooms:
I really enjoyed the two loaves of Low Carb Everything Bread, especially for a low carb grilled cheese – or in this case a grilled cheese with fried eggs on it. 🙂
I had a fabulous “low carb style” Chicken Brushetta meal at a local restaurant last week. It’s grilled chicken topped with mozzarella and tomato, with steamed broccoli and a spinach cream sauce:
This is the Chicken Brushetta on the menu. I asked for broccoli in place of the pasta, and no onions (I was on a dinner date, lol):
I attended a catered event at that same restaurant a few days before. They had a beautiful spread! I got grilled chicken and green beans, and topped my chicken with the spinach queso dip (spinach, tomato & cheese dip):
At another local restaurant, I ordered the grilled salmon with asparagus and sauteed mushrooms. I asked for alfredo sauce on the side, for dipping. 🙂 Delicious!
Oh, and my local Hardee’s is back open! 🙂 They have the BEST low carb burgers. My first stop there was for a low carb style (lettuce wrapped) Frisco Burger:
My girl friend Caroline came for the weekend and made low carb crustless quiche muffins. I’ll get that recipe for you. They were delicious! We had a great time with our danes, and also went out dancing – where she showed me some fun latin moves. 🙂
I wasn’t surprised to see the scales move down again. I’ve been eating healthy and staying active, and my clothes have been fitting looser lately. I actually wore a pair of SIZE FIVE skinny jeans when we went out dancing Saturday night!
