It’s Day 11 of the challenge and my scales are being seriously stubborn this go round. 🙄 I have lost 3.4 pounds, with nothing but slight fluctuations (both ways) in my weight since – lol.
That can get really frustrating, I know.
If you’re in the same boat… just keep your eye on the goal. Keep eating healthy, keep improving your choices, keep exercising (or start), and just focus on the long game. 🙂
That’s what I’m doing!
I had a GREAT sleep last night (finally!) but lack of good sleep – or enough of it – several nights in a row before that could definitely be one culprit. I’ve also been taking Advil for sore muscles and meds for Spring allergies here and there, and sleep and meds both have been known to stall me on the scales. So I’m not sweating it.
I also know my body seems to get very resistant just above 150 pounds, like it’s scared to death to dip below that weight and stay there. 😛 haha. The less weight you have to lose, the MORE challenging it is!
Below is my low carb food diary for yesterday…
Day 10: Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my usual low carb breakfast. It’s 3/4 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries. I stir it all together into “cereal”. 🙂 (6 net carbs and 88% healthy fats)
For lunch I grabbed a Low Carb Grilled Chicken Club from Hardee’s. These are 7 net carbs because they use BBQ Chicken.
For dinner I got take-out from Applebee’s, using their carside-to-go service. 🙂 I love convenience!! I got a grilled salmon caesar salad (with no croutons).
I took the salmon off, poured the dressing on, put the lid back on, shook it up real good, then added salmon back:
Delicious!! I ate all the salmon, but only about half the salad. Then I had the other half of the salad with 1/4 cup pecan halves in it later. The pecans give it a nice crunch, and it’s a great flavor combo!
If you miss croutons in your salads, try: sunflower seeds, sliced almonds or pecan halves. 🙂
