I had kind of a crap day yesterday. You know how sometimes you’re having a fine day, then something comes up and blows it all to h#ll? Yeah, that – plus a headache.
Then I realized I hadn’t really experienced keto flu since my off plan day last week… and that pretty much explained that, lol. Extreme irritability is one of my common symptoms, along with the headaches. 😛
Funny, it usually hits me on Day 3 – and it usually hits me MUCH harder.
That aside, it was a fine day. I even got in a nice walk with Slim (my great dane) and had a great food day too.
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 44 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 44: Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my favorite low carb breakfast: 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, and 4 small diced strawberries. I stir it all together into “low carb cereal”. It has great macros: 5 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.
I had a quick snack later in the morning, just a slice of colby jack cheese off the block (.60 ounces). Pardon my PJ’s 😀 lol…
For lunch I grabbed a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad (“no croutons, please!”) from Applebee’s Carside-to-Go while I was out running errands. I definitely prefer the salmon, but decided to try something different – mix things up a little. 😛
I ate about half of it, then finished the other half for dinner – with 1/4 cup pecan pieces added to it. That’s a favorite – I love pecans in Caesar Salad!
That’s me on my back deck, which is my favorite “room” in the house. 🙂

Slim and I had a quick evening walk with a good pace – good enough to work up a nice sweat! Here’s a photo of us, in the reflection of a window on our Downtown walk:
He had a hard time keeping up after our big trek the day before. Plus it was a lot warmer yesterday. Poor guy! (lol) At least we got a good little walk in. I so enjoy our walks together. 🙂
I’ll probably stay in today. I have lots of work to catch up on. I also have plenty of fun low carb foods I could “cook” today, so I may experiment in the kitchen a little!
Oh, and I was down about half a pound this morning: 147.6 pounds. I was 150.2 pounds on Friday and Saturday, so my weight is inching down a little at a time this week, which is nice!
What about you, how is your week going?
I look forward to hearing from you!
