Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 83 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 start date for the next 90 Day Low Carb Challenge yet, but the group stays open & active year round. Join in and stay tuned…
I had four meals yesterday plus a SERIOUS temptation- that I resisted. 🙂
It’s nice to be this close to the end of such a long (90 Day!) challenge, because it’s easy to say “just x more days” every time I think I’m going to cave – lol.
Fortunately I also KNOW that those temptations are never as good as they might sound in my head. 😛
Not to mention the fact that sugar and junk food makes me feel SICK (icky, lightheaded, lethargic, etc)… and I’m LOVING my high energy lately!! Especially for all the ambitious hikes and for pushing my workouts like I’ve been doing.
Day 83: Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my usual “Low Carb Cereal” for breakfast – with a few raspberries this time!
It was 1/2 cup crushed pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 2 small diced strawberries and 1/8 cup (17.5 grams) of raspberries.
That came to 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.
For lunch I had leftovers from dinner the night before: smoked sausage & squash with cucumber salad (which is just diced cucumber with salt & mayo).
Later in the afternoon I had to run out, so I stopped by the Sonic Drive-In…
They had sent me a birthday postcard with a free cheeseburger earlier this month for my birthday, so I cashed that in – and turned it into a “burger salad” when I got home. 🙂 (I just ditched the bun.)
I finished off the rest of the leftovers (sausages, squash & cucumbers) late last night too. The burger was more of an afternoon snack. 🙂
I still prefer Hardee’s for a low carb burger. They have a Low Carb Thickburger on the menu. So far I’ve tried that at Sonic and Wendy’s, and they haven’t even come close to the awesomeness of Hardee’s low carb burger!
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Saturday:
I did double the Tricep Dips yesterday (20 instead of my usual 10) plus an extra 20 reps on my Ab Carver too. It felt GREAT to push myself just a little bit harder than usual. 🙂 Here’s how you do the easy Tricep Dips (for flabby batwings!):
Have you tried the Tricep Dips yet?? They’re so easy!! I love that I can do them anywhere. They don’t take long either, but I can really FEEL them working!
Oh – I mentioned a “serious temptation” yesterday. That was at Sonic. 😛 I’ve been holding on to that “free cheeseburger” card for WEEKS, trying to decide if I could really resist the temptation, lol. And I did it!! *whew* haha
How are things going on your end?
I look forward to hearing from you!
