My scales may not be moving 🙄 but my feet sure are! I’ve been very active this week, and I have to admit… the tense and tender muscles feel GREAT.
I’m up early this morning to get in another fun outdoor adventure before I work, too. 🙂
I love this time of year! It’s so nice to get out walking or hiking, and soon kayaking and skiing. I much prefer outdoor FUN and an active lifestyle to the gym.
I didn’t eat much yesterday, but that’s just because it was a super busy day. I was on the go a lot…
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 17 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s not too late to join us if you haven’t already. 🙂
Day 17: Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals
I had two appointments in the morning yesterday, and I wasn’t hungry early – so I didn’t grab breakfast until 10:30am (between appointments).
I stopped at McDonald’s and got a Sausage Egg Mcmuffin (make it a double!) – and just ditched the muffin. (zero carbs)
I ate one sausage & egg then, and the other half around 12:30. I still don’t have much of an appetite, but that was enough to get me through breakfast & lunch.
In the evening I was home catching up on some work, so I made my favorite “low carb cereal” – because it’s easy. 🙂
This time it was 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, and almost 1/4 cup of raspberries. Delicious!! (6 net carbs and 85% healthy fats)
I snacked on an ounce of cheese closer to bedtime, just for a little something to eat. I probably could have eaten more, but I was SO tired – and just went to bed early. 🙂
That’s my Ozeri Kitchen Scale, which I LOVE. It’s small, inexpensive, and perfect for getting correct portions and macros.
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Wednesday:

I got in a good walk yesterday, and also did a “dancing workout” earlier that morning for core/abs. I said I would get a current picture for you, but I didn’t manage to get a full body pic. I did take this one though, after my walk while cooling off under the bridge down by the river for a bit. 🙂
Those are MY legs. A little grass and dirt too, lol – but those are MY lean legs! And size 10 shorts, with a little room in them. 🙂 It still feels really odd to see myself look so different. My plump upper thighs are really thinning out…
I do feel like I need to eat more. I had to make myself eat the sausage & eggs yesterday, and it took me two “meals” to finish those. I feel hungry, but NOTHING appeals – which is very odd, because I LOVE food (lol).
Coffee is good, water is good, snacking on nuts and cheese and berries is nice, but nothing else even sounds or tastes good the last few days for some reason. I tend to just “listen to my body” and go with that, but I do want to try to get some green veggies in over the next few days.
Maybe I should bump up my carbs & calories for a few days. Maybe I should keep going with how I feel, and keep eating lower calorie. Maybe I should just ignore it all and keep exercising and enjoying my days without worrying about it. 🙂 My scales WILL move eventually!
