Day 27 Low Carb Food & Exercise Diary – I’m On A Roll! Are You?


Saturday was a happy day, full of creative inspiration and good energy. I worked on some projects and just enjoyed the rainy/stormy day. πŸ™‚

I also got an AWESOME workout in!

And I didn’t eat a single pecan. πŸ˜›

Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 27 of the β€œGet 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.

Low Carb Groceries

I got: Coffee-Mate Sugar Free Hazelnut Powdered Creamer, Gevalia coffee, 4 bags of pecans πŸ™‚ , 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!

Zero Carb Breakfast : Fried Eggs & Grilled Tenderloin

For lunch I finished my leftover take-out, which was grilled chicken and roasted broccoli & cauliflower. I love take-out and leftovers. πŸ™‚

Low Carb Foods : Grilled Chicken with Roasted Broccoli & Cauliflower

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. πŸ˜›

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.

Oscar Mayer Smokies : Zero Carbs

I heated up two of those & dipped them in mustard.

And played with my food a bit. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ˜› 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!

    Does the ab carver pro help your arms any??

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Holly πŸ™‚

      I can definitely feel it in my triceps, shoulders, and that fatty area under my arms – so yes. πŸ™‚ In all the right places!

  2. deb says:

    at the greasy spoon how do you really know the carb count?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Deb,

      I know the carb count on the grilled tenderloin and fried eggs… because that’s all it is – meat & eggs. Eggs are .4 carbs each, so three eggs is 1.2 carbs. There are no carbs in tenderloin.

      I used to work there when I was a teenager (as a cook) so it’s just meat on the griddle and eggs fried on the same griddle.

      At a restaurant though, always order fried eggs. Scrambled eggs are iffy. They may add milk, or on buffets they often add some kind of batter to make & keep them fluffy.

      • deb says:

        asked because I don’t know if I would trust the “greasy spoons” in the world!!

        • Lynn Terry says:

          It really depends on what you order, Deb. I am careful to only order real / whole foods – like grilled meat and fried eggs for example. Anything else can be questionable.

          I also look up nutrition facts online before I go out, and decide what I’m going to get before I get there. πŸ™‚ That helps A LOT!

  3. Gigi says:

    What? No Pecans? Lol. πŸ™‚ i absolutely am hooked on that low carb cereal. πŸ™‚
    Sounds like you had a great day
    I had a little bit of the cream cheese and strawberries yesterday. I used the whipped cream cheese. I like the texture of that one better as a desert.
    I had a grilled chicken (bunless) from Wendys. I was not impressed”I would have rather had the chili but i resisted. :). I like the chicken club better from hardees
    I did a lot of walking yesterday
    I need to get a fit bit tracker to count my steps soon
    I feel like i have been losing inches lately since i have been walking more
    I had a pretty good low carb day….no cheats. πŸ™‚

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Way to go, Gigi! πŸ™‚ Every day that I eat healthy (low carb) and MOVE my body, is a total win – so you definitely had a WIN yesterday too!!

      I love my fitbit. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I’m famished, talking about food – lol. Off to see what I can hunt down…

    I love those smokies!! They’re my favorite “hot dog”.
    My saturday was pretty chill too…my hubby worked all day so I spent my entire day cleaning my house top to bottom (which doesn’t last long with 3 little boys running around), but it gave me a great workout.

    My meals were:
    B: bpc, 2 Egg omelet w /1 slice mozzarella, 2 slices turkey bacon
    L: water (I was busy cleaning)
    D: 3 sliders wwo bread (meat, 1/2 slice colby jack, mustard), wrapped in lettuce leaves
    S: 2 pieces Russell stover chocolate

    I had 9 net carbs and 80% fat. I also drank 80oz of water

    • Lynn Terry says:

      You’re so consistent, Justine. πŸ™‚ I love that!

      Weekends can be so nice. Even just cleaning house, or for me: working on creative projects (I work from home). I love downtime. πŸ™‚

      • Justine says:

        ☺ I’m really trying my hardest to stay consistent throughout this challenege. I think listing my meals everyday and contributing to posts from other members helps me feel more encouraged and accountable. I’m having a great time so far.
