Day 72: Fabulous Low Carb Meals & Even More Weight Loss!



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. 🙄

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!!

    That’s awesome!!!!! Really great job. I wish I had a close by Hardees, The closest I have is 15 min away……yesterday I was extra hungry too:
    Had Chicken with Green Beans and Spinach for lunch, with mayo. (It was a smaller breast and not many vegis)
    So then I had a plate of tomatos with Mozz cheese.
    Still hungry, so I had cottage cheese/pecan/strawberry.
    And then still hungry, so had made bacon for the kids for lunch/dinner, and had 4 slices center cut bacon. Finally full!
    For dinner, I wasn’t really hungry. So I had 2 beef sticks, and 2 round red cheese things.

    It was a strange day, usually I just eat lunch, and dinner, and maybe a small snack.

    I hope today is less work in the kitchen. HA HA!

      lol JoAnn – me too! I find meals to be a neverending chore. 😉

      I do tend to eat a higher fat meal earlier in the day, which usually helps. I wonder if it was your lack of breakfast and then super lean lunch that kicked off the hunger? Or who knows, because I was hungry too and my early meals WERE high fat. 😛

      Your foods sound really good though. I’m getting tired of my “usuals” but I’ve been just using up what I have here or whatever’s easy – so the summer sausage was a nice treat yesterday!

    That’s too much fat for one day. Even if you are on low carb…

    I found a salami (thin sliced) rollup on Pinterest – basically salami and cream cheese rolled up, stick a toothpick in it and take it to parties as finger food. Simple and tasty.

    Where can I read about how your journey started?

  5. DJ says:

    Your foods looked and sounded good – the more fat the better for saiety!! I am losing veerrrryyyy slowly but losing. Trying to be patient too about the process. Curious though – does anyone use the frozen Atkins meals?
