Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 73 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!!
Unlike Tuesday I had NO appetite yesterday, but I did eat two healthy low carb meals and also got in some GREAT exercise.
I’ll share a video with you below, and show you what I’m doing. 🙂
It’s SO easy and you can do it ANYwhere! Anyway here’s what I ate yesterday, along with a little sneak peek into yesterday’s big fun adventure…
Day 73: Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals
I skipped breakfast and only had one coffee because I had early appointments.
I suppose that’s what you call “Intermittent Fasting” although it’s never intentional with me. I love to eat. 🙂 I didn’t have much of an appetite yesterday anyway, or I would have grabbed a handful of pecans on the go or something.
Since I missed breakfast, I had my healthy low carb cereal for lunch. It’s 1/2 cup crushed pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries – and this time I added 1/8 cup diced blueberries.
It came to 7 net carbs and 84% healthy fats:
That was delicious. 🙂
I had to scramble around while I was eating to get ready for a “last minute unplanned adventure trip” lol. Joe and I are SO spontaneous!!
My Fitbit was dead, my phone was at half charge, I didn’t have any coffee made, lol – Ack! I pulled it all together though, haha.
Time to go exploring and chase waterfalls! 😉
I’ll have to share the hike with you in a detailed photo tour. It was SO much fun! We got lost in the woods on the way out, lol.
On the way back from our hike we stopped at a great little BBQ place for a quick low carb dinner. We got smoked wings & salads:
They were FABULOUS. 🙂 Just “smoked wings” with a marinade of worcestershire, lemon juice & hot sauce. (I asked, lol)
Confession: That particular restaurant was REALLY hard for me. I had to pause for a long second before I walked in even, lol. THIS is the place I go when I want an off plan meal. Resisting “my usual” there was tough!! I think Joe was just testing my willpower. 😛 I won!! haha
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Wednesday:
Net Carbs: 16
Total Carbs: 25

77% Fat, 17% Protein
Exercise: 25 Tricep Dips + Strenuous Hike
FitBit Steps: 7,384

I did my Tricep Dips while we were on the hike. I did 15 before we headed into the trail, then another 10 on the trail. They’re really easy to do, and you can do them ANYwhere. 🙂 This is the exercise I’m doing at least 5 times a week right now to tone up my flabby “batwings” (the underside of your arm):
My new CaliCase Waterproof, Floating Phone Cases came in this week, so the waterfall hike was a perfect opportunity to test them out!
Especially since we hiked upriver (in the water), hiked the actual waterfall, and even got caught in a downpour. 🙂 I love it. I especially like that I can still USE my phone (and even take great photos) while it’s IN the case! Plus it has an awesome strap and double-lock hook, so you don’t have to worry about dropping your phone or it falling out of your pocket…
That picture is dark because that’s right about the time the dark clouds started rolling in, right before the bottom fell out lol. 🙂 I’ll share the hike with you in another post.
It was really cool, and GREAT exercise.
One of our next adventures includes an ambitious “cave hike” to find a waterfall that is supposed to be hidden deep in the dark depths of the cave. 🙂
The BBQ joint was tough yesterday. Especially since I was physically exhausted from the hike, which is when I tend to have less willpower. 😛
I am still below 145 pounds (which still totally blows my mind!!) and with just over 2 weeks left in the current challenge… I didn’t want to totally tank myself!
I didn’t tell myself “no”. I simply said, “Not today.”
How is your week going so far??
I look forward to hearing from you…
