Happy Monday! 🙂 It’s Day 71 of the Spring Low Carb Challenge, and we weigh in every week on Monday mornings. If you’re participating in the low carb challenge Facebook group, you’ll find the Week 10 Weigh-In thread here.
I figured out why I was having cravings, and why I was restless and irritable Saturday night – and why I had a headache again yesterday. 😛
I feel much better today though. While the symptoms are a royal pain (literally) they only last a day or so for me – thank goodness!
That’s a seriously good deterrent for eating off plan, lol.
I don’t understand the people who do carb cycling or weekly cheat days. That would mean you’d have “the low carb flu” EVERY week. Yuck! 😯
My 10-Week Weigh-In
I saw another all-time low number on my scales this morning. I now weigh only 144.6 pounds. Last Monday I was 148 pounds, so that’s almost 3 1/2 pounds lost this week – and a total of 10 full pounds lost during this challenge so far. 🙂 🙂
Yes that’s only 10 pounds, or only a pound a week, but that’s GREAT at my weight!! It’s also great considering I’m so focused on GAINING muscle weight. 🙂 I’m very pleased with today’s weigh-in!!
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 70 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s NEVER too late to join if you haven’t already!
Day 70: Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
I had a healthy low carb breakfast – my now famous “low carb cereal” lol: 1/2 cup crushed pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries… and I added 1/8 cup diced blueberries too.
I was craving blueberries yesterday! 🙂 I use frozen berries because they are easier to dice slightly frozen. This bowl came to 8 net carbs and 83% healthy fats.
My leftover “sausage & spinach” with two fried eggs on top made for an easy low carb lunch. That was really delicious – I love spinach. The funny thing is… I never liked spinach before going low carb, and now I crave it!
By the end of the day I was tired AND I had just started the dishwasher 🙂 lol… so I just grabbed some Oscar Mayer turkey slices & colby jack cheese and a bottled water. No dishes, no cooking = Happy Me!!
I ended up getting 1/4 cup (30 grams) of pecan halves to go with that too…
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Sunday:
The Pefect Ab Carver Pro is on sale at Amazon again! 🙂
I said yesterday my abs & arms weren’t sore after doing 100 ab reps and the Tricep Dips. I was wrong. I just didn’t realize I was sore until I went to do it again last night – lol. I wimped out after 60 reps on the Ab Carver Pro! Fortunately I did the Tricep Dips first 🙂 haha… And YES, those are working too!
As for my weight… yes, I’m tripping – lol. WOW. I think in my late 20’s I weighed around 142 pounds. I was a healthy size and in semi decent shape. Better shape than I’m in now for sure. I don’t really have a “number goal” (I’ve already reached – and passed! – that) so at this point it’s all about the toning and muscle building…
We’re under heat advisory here in Tennessee this week with 90+ degree temps and high humidity. Not ideal for daily walks, and definitely not for hiking! I’m focusing on my indoor arm & core workouts anyway, so it’s good timing. 😉
How are things going on your end?
I look forward to hearing from you…
