If you’re participating in the 2017 Low Carb Challenge (feel free to join in anytime!) we do weigh-ins every Monday. Here’s the Week 12 Weigh-In for the Facebook group, or you can weigh in here by leaving a comment below on this post.
Mine was quiet as usual, after some fun dancing on Friday night 🙂 and included things like pizza & ice cream – the stuff weekends are made of!
haha, all low carb of course.;)
I can’t wait to hear what you ate, and how things are going with you!
Here’s a photo tour of my low carb meals this weekend, plus my MyFitnessPal diaries for the last two days too so you can see how I logged those meals…
Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
Saturday morning I was a bit foggy and hungover from my 5 low carb beers (Michelob Ultra) the night before, and my hips and calves were SORE from dancing in 5″ heels all night (lol) so I grabbed the quickest easiest things I could get my hands on to eat – just so I could take some advil. 😯 haha
It’s just 1/2 cup of raw pecans (60 grams). They’re VERY low carb and high fat, so super filling without many carbs – and a real food.:)
My “dance partner” stayed the weekend to help me with shopping & new recipes (I know, I know – a man that dances, shops AND cooks! 🙂 lol) and when he finally woke up a few hours later… he was craving pancakes, ha! So he ran out to McDonald’s, and I got sausage & eggs.
It was a rainy Saturday night so we decided to stay in and order pizza. 🙂
Well, we ordered dinner from Domino’s I mean. There was no actual pizza involved. We each got a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad (I removed my croutons) and split an 8-piece order of mild unbreaded bone-in wings.
Later that night we watched a movie, and I had some Halo Top low carb ice cream (Mocha Chip) with pecan chips. He had pie. 😛
Here’s how I logged my meals for Saturday:
Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
Sunday morning’s low carb breakfast was a simple bacon & eggs – with the eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese (off the block).
For lunch I made my favorite “cereal” with: 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries. My favorite go-to LCHF meal. 🙂
For dinner we made the Low Carb Meatballs & Pasta recipe. The meatballs were his favorite 🙂 but he enjoyed the whole pasta dish, even as a carb-eating man!
Here’s my MyFitnessPal Food Diary for Sunday:
Net Carbs: 20
Total Carbs: 38
Protein: 73 grams
75% Fat / 19% Protein
This was the Low Carb Grocery List I sent him out with this weekend. I was going for “mix & match” options that will make great meals all week long. So now I have a TON of food in my refrigerator to COOK this week. 😯 Ugh, lol.
I keep telling myself it’ll be FUN. 😛 haha
Our current low carb challenge ends on March 31st… so this is a great time to FINISH STRONG. 🙂 We’ll have our final weigh-in on Saturday morning!
A new Low Carb Challenge will begin soon, so make sure you’re signed up so you don’t miss out on that.
I got my Tricep Dips in! 🙂 On top of some SERIOUS lower body work on the dancefloor Friday night, lol. I’m really challenging myself to get back to regular strength & muscle building.
