Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 72 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s NEVER too late to join if you haven’t already!
Note: I haven’t set a date for the next 90 Day Low Carb Challenge yet, but the group stays open & active year round. I may do a short mini-challenge in July before the next big challenge. 🙂 Join in and stay tuned!!
I was REALLY hungry yesterday for some reason, lol. Usually I don’t have much of an appetite, but yesterday I seemed to be hungry every few hours. 😛
My weight dropped again too, by another half pound. I’m now 144.2 pounds. 🙂
Anyway I tanked my carb limit with a couple of low carb snacks, but still did pretty good for the day at 30 net carbs…
Day 72: Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
For breakfast I ate the rest of my leftover “breakfast scramble with sausage, spinach, eggs & colby jack cheese. That was really good. 🙂
Joe and I went to the river with our dogs and his neice. It was the perfect (HOT) summer day until a huge storm blew in on us complete with thunder, lightning and trees down all over the place on the way back -lol. What a crazy pop-up storm! Anyway…
We got back hungry, and I found plenty of great low carb foods in his fridge. 🙂 We pulled together a nice “low carb for two” spread of: Summer Sausage, Cream Cheese, Raspberries, and Borden Natural Double Twist String Cheese. Delicious!! 🙂
The summer sausage with cream cheese… YUM 🙂 What a great combo!!
I was exceptionally tired yesterday – on top of my higher than normal appetite, lol – and ended up taking a long afternoon after our fun at the river. I woke up FAMISHED. Of course the easiest thing to grab was the free box of Atkins Bars they just sent me.
These things are dangerous at 6 net carbs – and to be so small. 😛 But dang, when you’re craving a crunchy candy bar… it really hits the spot!
For dinner, I decided to just get a low carb burger from Hardee’s. This time I ordered it like their low carb club though: with swiss, bacon, mayo & tomato.
The chicken club is 7 net carbs because it’s bbq chicken, so I basically just swapped that for the 1/3 pound thickburger patty.
I got hungry again after my workout and before bed, and grabbed ANOTHER one of those Atkins bars – and some almonds too. 🙄
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Tuesday:
Here’s a picture of Joe and I at the river yesterday. I’m at my lowest weight yet! And I’ve dropped another half pound since Monday’s weigh-in. 🙂 This is my lowest weight since my 20’s even… and I just turned 43!
I’m really pleased I got my workout in last night. 🙂 I did 100 reps on the Ab Carver Pro and 10 Tricep Dips. It was a push to get through both of them, but I’m seriously determined to get my core and arms in better shape!!
How is your week going so far??
I look forward to hearing from you…
p.s. The Pefect Ab Carver Pro is on sale at Amazon again! 🙂
