The Spring Low Carb Challenge just kicked off this month. You can still join us if you haven’t already! πŸ™‚ You can get all the details on the low carb challenge page.

 

Keto SnacksToday is our Week Three Weigh In, so it’s time to check in and share your total number of pounds and/or inches lost since Monday April 3rd!;)

My weight continues to fluctuate a bit, but with an overall downward trend. I’m not sweating it… except to “sweat it out” with as much exercise as I can.;)

I had a very full weekend between work, friends & social outings – so my meals weren’t the greatest…

Still, I made the better of any bad choices available. πŸ™‚

Here’s a quick photo tour of everything I ate over the weekend, plus my MyFitnessPal food diaries for both Saturday and Sunday so you can see how I logged those meals.

Saturday’s Low Carb Meals

My low carb breakfast on Saturday… was delicious. πŸ™‚ lol

I had the Coco Polo Hazelnut Chocolate Bar plus an ounce of Pili Nuts. Coco Polo bars are the BEST sugar free chocolate!!

You can see the ingredients, nutrition facts, and the variety of flavors here.

Low Carb Snacks & Sweets

Pili Nuts are AMAZING, wild harvested, and incredibly nutrient dense – PLUS super low carb! Go to http://www.EatPiliNuts.com to learn more about them – and use code LOWCARBTRAVELER (all caps) to get a special discount. πŸ˜‰

For lunch I had to grab something on the go…

My girl friend and I headed out of town to go dancing, so we stopped by McDonald’s and I got “3 sausage patties and 3 round fried eggs please.”

Quick & easy, and filling. πŸ™‚

I danced the night away (in 5″ heels!) that night, with my favorite low carb beer: Michelob Ultra. It’s 2.6 carbs per 12 ounce bottle, and my preference of low carb beers. Of course I drank way too many of them. πŸ˜›

I got in a great workout at least, and well over 10,000 Fitbit steps!

Sunday’s Low Carb Meals

Caroline and I stayed over and our hotel offered a free breakfast – which was very limited. So I just raided the condiment rack πŸ™‚ and ate cream cheese & peanut butter. Enough to get by anyway, until we got home and I could make lunch.

My healthy low carb lunch was my favorite “low carb cereal.” It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese & 4 small strawberries. (5 net carbs & 85% healthy fat)

Healthy LCHF Meal

We went back out last night to meet up with one of her friends for dinner, at the El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant. I ordered a Taco Salad with both grilled chicken and grilled shrimp, and avocado instead of guacamole – and ate everything but the shell.

That was delicious! πŸ™‚

Here’s proof – I cleaned my plate and left the shell, lol:

These were my dancing Fitbit steps (before AND after midnight) on Saturday night. πŸ™‚ It was a GREAT workout, especially in 5″ heels lol. A great time “sweating it out” – and my hips are STILL sore from all that dancing.;)

Did you get your exercise this weekend??

For the week ahead I’m planning to do some heavy work around the house, and also hike at least once – if not twice. My goal is to KEEP MOVING as much as possible! And of course stay on track eating low carb, and making healthy choices for my meals this week.

    I seem to be struggling terribly, I thought I’d been doing so well! Do you use a food scale? And I’m thinking of lowering my dairy intake, I’ve only lost 2 lbs in three weeks! Maybe more cardio?
