Here is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 85 of the “Get Lean For Summer!” 90 Day Low Carb Challenge. 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.
I’ll probably host a FUN mini-challenge in July, so join in and stay tuned…
I only had two meals yesterday, and just over 900 calories. I had a very late breakfast (closer to lunch) then a very early dinner… and I was busy in the evening – then too tired to worry with eating again last night. 😛
My weight has been doing it’s usual “dance” this week. I hit an all time low of 143.6 last week (on Thursday), it bounced up to 145.6 by yesterday (Monday), and back down to 144 pounds today.
This Saturday marks 90 full days I’ve been powering through this low carb challenge, so the final weigh-in will be on Sunday morning. I fully intend to beat my lowest weight by then and end this challenge at my lowest weight yet!
Day 85: Monday’s Low Carb Meals
I started the day with coffee. It was a busy morning, including a few errands, and I finally made breakfast closer to lunchtime. I had bacon leftover from the day before, so I just fried up a couple of eggs to go with the bacon.
Bacon & Eggs is considered a “zero carb meal” even though both do have trace carbs, it’s just a negligible amount. I count it though. Eggs are .4 carbs each, or 1 carb for 2 eggs.
I made a big plate of “snacks” for lunch – or an early dinner – however you want to call it. 🙂 It was a huge plate of various foods, so I just snacked on it for an hour or so while I was working in the afternoon.
I had salami, spicy pepperoni, colby jack cheese, cream cheese, blueberries & raspberries. Such a delicious combo of low carb foods!!
It came to 11 net carbs, which is a lot for one meal (for me!) but I was planning on having bacon & eggs again for dinner. I just got too busy, and then too tired to eat again…
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Monday:

I didn’t get a workout in yesterday. My arms and abs needed a “recovery day” after working them two days in a row, lol. I thought I’d get out for a walk last night, but like I said… by the end of the day I just wanted to crawl in bed. 😛
I have a day full of errands today so I’ll probably grab some easy low carb take-out along the way. It’ll be nice to have a break from the kitchen. I’m getting bored with my usual foods anyway!
How are things going on your end?
I look forward to hearing from you!
