Saturday was a happy day, full of creative inspiration and good energy. I worked on some projects and just enjoyed the rainy/stormy day. 🙂
I also got an AWESOME workout in!
And I didn’t eat a single pecan. 😛
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 27 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 27: Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
I had a few errands to run in the morning, including groceries. I just picked up a few low carb staples to get me through the weekend.
I got: Coffee-Mate Sugar Free Hazelnut Powdered Creamer, Gevalia coffee, 4 bags of pecans 🙂 , bottled water, Daisy brand cottage cheese, frozen strawberries & blueberries, Philadelphia cream cheese, and Oscar Mayer Smokies.
While I was out, I picked up low carb take-out from a local “greasy spoon” that makes GREAT breakfast. I got grilled tenderloin & 3 fried eggs (1.2 carbs). YUM!
For lunch I finished my leftover take-out, which was grilled chicken and roasted broccoli & cauliflower. I love take-out and leftovers. 🙂
I had a nice long afternoon nap, and just kind of noshed & grazed the rest of the evening. Starting with a slice of Kraft Colby Jack Cheese off the block (.78 ounces, zero carbs)… because it was easy. 😛
I didn’t finish my plate of chicken & veggies earlier (at lunch), so I heated up the “leftover leftovers” (lol) and ate the rest of that. Then after my workout I was hungry again… and found the smokies I just bought.
I heated up two of those & dipped them in mustard.
And played with my food a bit. 🙂 lol…
To top off my fabulous day, I enjoyed a big saucer of raspberries & Philadelphia cream cheese for a treat. These frozen raspberries are so plump and sweet! I love a simple “real food” dessert like this… and it’s SO delicious.
Skipping my usual pecans for breakfast made it harder to meet my 70% fat goal for the day, but I still got close. I don’t stress over getting my macros or numbers exact, and I won’t eat something JUST to bump the numbers, but I do track as I go so I can get as close as I can.
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Saturday:
I didn’t FEEL like working out, but I forced myself to get up and get it done. Since it was storming, I did my Focus T25 home workout DVD. It’s a favorite. 🙂 Shaun T is so great to work out with!!
After that workout I did 60 reps on my Ab Carver Pro, 20 to the front and 20 to each side. I’m trying to use it daily, to really tone my core – which is the jiggliest part on me. 😛 I find it harder to work out at home so I’m really impressed I talked myself into that, lol. I prefer getting out and doing something fun for exercise, but in order to reach my goals I’m going to have to PUSH myself.
How’s your weekend going?
I look forward to hearing from you!
