In my last post I mentioned being up a bit since returning from my last trip.
That was due to a couple days of intentional down time. 😛 lol.
Fortunately I am losing quickly now that I’m back on track, and just in time to hopefully get back below 150 pounds before my trip to Atlanta later this week!
My current weight is 152.8 pounds. Interestingly I woke up early this morning weighing 153.6 pounds. I was up for an hour or so but just felt really tired for some reason – so I laid back down for another 90 minutes… and woke up weighing almost a pound less! I find good quality sleep (and getting enough rest, period) really makes a difference with my weight loss. When I have insomnia, or I’m not sleeping well – or enough – it always stalls out my weight loss.
Anyway, here’s what I’ve been eating for the last few days…
Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
My low carb breakfast yesterday was 3/4 cup crushed pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy cottage cheese, and 4 small diced/frozen strawberries. It’s 6 net carbs and 88% healthy fats.
Then I had beautiful low carb lunch at Applebee’s later in the afternoon. I special ordered it a bit. 🙂 It’s grilled salmon topped with their parmesan shrimp, plus: spinach, mushrooms & zucchini. Delicious meal!
I only ate those two meals yesterday, but they were both high enough calorie – and it was a late breakfast then a late lunch / early dinner. Plus I went to bed early. 🙂

Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
I had the same breakfast as above – exact same amounts:
For lunch I had leftovers from the big meal I cooked on Friday:
(minus the asparagus)
For dinner I just made turkey, cheese & pickle rollups:
Easy. 🙂 Or lazy, lol. I had some more smoked sausages & kraut with a couple slices of colby jack cheese later that night too.
My Complete MyFitnessPal Low Carb Food Diary for Saturday:
On Friday I had an egg scrambled with colby jack cheese (off the block) with 1/4 cup of Daisy brand cottage cheese for breakfast. For lunch I had a Low Carb Grilled Chicken Club from Hardee’s. Then I cooked a big dinner. You can see the groceries I bought and the low carb meal I cooked on Friday in this post. Friday came out to 19 net carbs, 23 total carbs, 1024 calories, 68% fat / 25% protein.
It’s SO nice to get rid of the bloat, and see my scales moving DOWN. 🙂 I have more new dresses to wear on my next trip, and I’d love to fit into them – comfortably (lol). I leave on Thursday, so I’m staying super focused!
The other thing I’m really focusing on lately is toning my arms & core. That’s my big goal for Spring & Summer. I put a link to some fun easy exercises on Facebook that you might like too. Click Here to check them out if you can’t see the embedded link below.
How are you doing with your weight loss goals? I’d love to hear what’s going on with you, and any questions you have! It’s officially Spring now, and I’m getting really excited about Summer… and being leaner and stronger this year!! 🙂
