Happy Monday! 🙂 It’s Day 85 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 12 Weigh-In thread here.
We have our final weigh-in this weekend! I haven’t set a start date for the next 90 Day Low Carb Challenge yet, but the group stays open & active year round…
As usual my weight is in a “hold” after dipping down a few days ago.
I see a loss on the scales, then my weight will hold or fluctuate slightly for up to a week before it drops again.
I have some ideas for pushing the scales and forcing my weight down this week before our final weigh-in though, so stay tuned for details!
I’ve been on a SERIOUS blueberry kick lately. 🙂
Fresh berries will be ready to pick here in Tennessee soon too, so I’m really looking forward to some berry-picking outings in July. Meanwhile I’m still enjoying frozen berries. They’re easy to dice while still half frozen, and I can just use what I want – without worrying about them going bad on me.
Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 84 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. It’s NEVER too late to join if you haven’t already!
Day 84: Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
I had my usual healthy “low carb cereal” but this time I used some pecan halves and whole blueberries (instead of diced). I was in the mood for more of a juicy crunchy breakfast. 🙂
It’s 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 2 strawberries and 1/8 cup (17.5 grams) of blueberries – for a total of 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.
I’m finally running low on groceries and back to my minimalist cabinets and fridge, lol. I did find some bacon in the freezer though, so I pulled that out to thaw.
Then I did a quick google search and found How To Make Perfect Bacon in the Oven. I’ve been wanting to try that! 🙂 I love how step-by-step the instructions are, even for something SO simple. People like me need that, lol.
It was really easy:
The bacon came out PERFECT. Nice! 🙂
I made up a quick batch of buttery Low Carb Blueberry Crepes to go with it. YUM!
I had plenty leftover so that’s what I had for dinner too – plus two more slices of bacon late last night. 🙂 I’ll never cook bacon in the skillet again…
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Sunday:
It was after midnight last night when I FORCED myself to get up and do my Ab Carver and Tricep Dips. I am on a serious mission to get in shape! 🙂
I really enjoy “body sculpting” way more than “cardio” when it comes to exercise. It takes a lot less time, and I’m seeing results quicker by targeting very specific areas (abs & arms at the moment) with my workouts.
Next I’m going to add in exercises to target my inner thighs & butt.
I miss my walks with Slim, but it’s been crazy hot & humid here in Tennessee for the past week. It’s supposed to cool down a bit this week though, so I can’t wait to get back out & explore downtown more!
Back to body sculpting though, my fun outdoor fitness adventure this week is either going to be hiking/caving (I want to explore what looks like a cave at the top of Lost Creek Falls), or kayaking – which is great core and arm / upper body exercise. Or maybe both. 🙂
I’m ENJOYING the exercise, and having FUN getting out and exploring my local area. Just living a more active lifestyle lately feels GOOD, and my body is really shaping up as a result!!
How are things going on your end?
I look forward to hearing from you…
