When I first start back eating low carb, I always like to keep it super simple. I mentioned I really need to go grocery shopping. But when I try to fit in grocery shopping, meal planning, meal preparation, yada yada yada – I get overwhelmed, and it can be easy to just grab something to eat and get on with my day.
I’m not one to spend tons of time in the kitchen anyway, which I’m sure you’ve already figured out. LOL.
I weighed in this morning at 162.6, and while that’s only a pound or so lost (I was fluctuating up to 164) it happened in just 48 hours – and I can really feel even that small difference! Honestly, it’s just nice to see the scales moving again. And of course the first weight to come off is water weight – right around the midsection – which feels GREAT.
With hardly anything in the house (low carb, at least) I made a quick breakfast of Vienna sausages and cheese – after my usual morning coffee of course:
Around lunch I headed to the gym and did an intense 45 minute workout on the treadmill with a steep incline. On the way home I grabbed a Low Carb ThickBurger from Hardee’s (I order it without ketchup, tomatoes or onions – which cuts out most of the carb count).
My best guess on the total carb count for that take-out meal would be 10 Net Carbs. Of course, that includes the carrots – which I didn’t eat. My Great Dane ate them.
I was only able to eat about half of all that food, so I had the other half later at night (along with the rest of the salad):
What about you? What are YOU eating this week?
