Day 89 Low Carb Meals & Blackberry Picking For Low Carb Dessert Recipes


Keto SnacksHere is my Low Carb Food Diary for Day 89 of the β€œGet 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 be hosting some FUN mini-challenges in July, so be sure to join in and stay tuned for details. πŸ™‚

Today is actually the last full day of this challenge, so we’ll have our final weigh-in tomorrow morning. I’m really pleased with my dedication, commitment, and with my weight loss during this challenge! Not to mention the habits I’ve changed… and the NEW habit of regular exercise I’ve added. This challenge has definitely been a success!

Day 89: Friday’s Low Carb Meals

I had my favorite “Low Carb Cereal” of 1/2 cup crushed pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese and 4 small diced strawberries. (5 net carbs and 85% healthy fats)

For lunch I fried the last Kentucky Legend center cut pork chop in bacon drippings. Those are delicious. πŸ™‚ They are full cooked, so it only takes about 8 minutes to brown them a bit on each side. They come out so tender & tasty!

I didn’t make any sides with that because 1) it’s a HUGE pork chop and filling by itself, and 2) I was planning to make a veggie dinner.

Instead I went out blackberry picking at the last minute… so I ended up getting a Low Carb Chicken Club sandwich in a lettuce wrap from Hardee’s on the way back.

I did have some nuts & cookies (low carb cookies!) late last night too. It’s the brand new Keto Kookie they sent me to review, and stay tuned because I’m going to host a giveaway for them soon! πŸ™‚

    Hi Lyn

    I LOVE BLACKBERRIES!!!! Fresh picked and locally grown produce is so healthy. Blackberries in the supermarket are usually very expensive and the organic ones are even more pricey i will have to check and see if there are any places here where i can get locally grown berries.
    I had planned on having a chicolate muffin at the breakfast buffet but once i got my scranbled eggs and sausage links with colby shredded cheese on top. And my low carb yogurt and cantalope pieces. I decided that i really did not need that muffin nor did i think it was worth messing up my carb counts for the day
    i figured that the yogurt and cantalope i saved for later was a lot healthier for me and i rather have extra carbs in low glycemic foods than in sugar or starch carbs. Not all carbs are created equal. Sugar carbs are the worst.

    I am very pleased with this challenge. Since February 2016. I lost 20 lbs. I lost 10 lbs since the start of this challenge
    i am sad to see it end but i will continue with my low carb eating anyway
    count me in for the keto cookie give away. Lol
    it is a struggle everyday and temptation is a constant but as long as i stay low carb then my cravings are tolerable and somedays i am not hungry at all
    i do not have words to thank you enough for all you do!!! Thank You so much Lyn
    we are all in this together
    i will do what i can to help you keep up your blog if it means orderung products from your website?
    Does it help you when we order frim your links?
    Cheers. Gina. Aka. Gigi. πŸ™‚

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Ah, Gina – cool to know your name now! πŸ™‚ It does help, and it’s very much appreciated. Thank you!! I’ll continue on with the updates, and I’m so happy you’ll be sticking this out with me. πŸ™‚ I’ll be starting some summer mini-challenges next, and another big low carb challenge soon!

      I agree that not all carbs are the same. A single cookie will throw me out of ketosis and totally tank my energy. A higher carb “healthy food” generally does not. That said, I can’t lose eating fruit or more than 20 net carbs a day. Not since my hysterectomy at least. πŸ˜›

      Congrats on 20 pounds lost since February!! I am 25 pounds lighter than I was 2 years ago, and 50 pounds lighter total – but I am not sure how long it took me to lose that last 25 pounds. I gained and lost the same weight SO many times over and over – before this challenge, lol. Ugh!

      Here’s to amazing results together through the rest of the year! πŸ™‚ *cheers*

        There are a lot of things on Netrition that i want to buy
        i am getting a little bored with my usual foods
        i want to try some new low carb foods and recipes soon. I have no oven here so some things are out unless i buy a toaster oven
        i have three,electric hot plates on the counter top and a microwave.
        I am going to be purchasing some new items soon including a scale. I do not know my exact weight now. Argh……
        you gave me so many great ideas on useful products for our lc life style
        i also want to learn how to make money writing. I will have to pour through all of your recent blogs for reference for my wish list
        you cannot tell from my horrible typos here, but i love to write. I mostly write poetry but i’d be open to explore new possibilities in the writing field
        i self published a book of poetry in 2012 i did not make much money on it but it was something i wanted to do.
        It is hard to write from my phone here with its tiny keypad. I bought a nice tablet now with a keyboard. Later i will buy a new laptop as i lent my lap top to my daughter to use for her college courses and i doubt if she will give it back πŸ™‚
        Ps. I do not lose weight eating fruit either. I am menopausal but i never have been able to lose if i eat fruit. I am so glad that i can eat berries on this woe. I love love your low carb cereal. Yummy.

        • Lynn Terry says:

          This is the scale I use and love: It’s inexpensive, pretty, accurate – and comes with a free body tape measure too! Plus the batteries REALLY last. πŸ™‚

          Let me know if you need anything specific. Happy to help!

          • Gig says:

            I am going to order that scal . Thank you
            the next thing will be the fit bit thing . Lol

          • Lynn Terry says:

            I love my Fitbit. πŸ™‚ It’s the ONE thing that *finally* got me motivated to get up and move! lol. I’m so addicted to it. You’ll love it when you get one – everyone does!

          • Gigi says:

            I really believe the fit bit will motivate me as well. I cannot wait to get it. πŸ™‚

  2. Jodi Sabul says:

    Hi Lynn. I don’t know if you remember our conversation last week but I have been struggling for a while. The good news is that this past week I did some tweaking and with your inspirational posts helping I’ve actually done great this week. I’m down 2.4 pounds. I’m very mindful about what I’ve been eating but I wanted to thank you for your help

    • Lynn Terry says:

      That’s so awesome, Jodi – I do remember πŸ™‚ – and that totally makes my day!! Sometimes it just takes a little tweaking, a little extra dedication and commitment. I know that’s often the case for me – and what I’m dealing with on my fitness / toning goals this summer. πŸ™‚

      Kudos for reaching out, taking control, and making it happen!!

    Hi Lynn,
    I just returned from 4 days away on a mini vacation. We stayed at a B&B in Asheville and I was a bit concerned about how I was gonna do. I just weighed myself and I came back and half a pound down from 4 days ago! I mostly stayed true to low carb, having a bite here and there – especially of the wonderful breakfasts they served at the B&B. And for the first time in 3 months I drank wine, and even a few sips of beer (we went to the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Asheville so I just had to!). But now that I’m back home, I’ll be right back on it for the next 15 pounds, which will get me to my goal weight, and within a normal BMI range. So, with the help of your encouragement and advice I’ve lost 23 pounds since the challenge and I’m pretty ecstatic!
