My Low Carb Diary for Day 5 of the Summer Low Carb Mini-Challenge. Join in anytime! I’ll share my meals here every day to give you easy low carb food ideas.
I decided I wanted blueberry peanut butter breakfast cookies today!
I’ll share the recipe in my next update, so stay tuned for that. YUMMMM
I had good intentions yesterday.
I cooked, I showered (that’s a big deal some days, lol) – but seriously, I showered because I was going to do Mountain Climbers with the Core Discs on video to show you how cool it is.
I did cook. And I did shower. But I didn’t eat my dinner, or work out or make the video… I ended up getting sidetracked and having a full evening (company) so I put my dinner in the fridge – and by the end of the night I just crashed. Without dinner!
That means I have something yummy to eat today though. 🙂
Have you ever done that? I’m not one to skip meals. I do love to eat. But I find myself doing that more than usual lately. It’s almost a flip side of my emotional eating issue, which was a b*tch to overcome.
But now it seems I’d rather NOT eat when I’m stressed or emotional. I’m not sure that’s the best trade-off… I do prefer to fuel my body with healthy foods.
Anyway, below is my low carb diary for yesterday, and what I cooked last night. And stay tuned to see what I just cooked this morning!!
Oh – and my weight dropped again: I’m 141.8 pounds today. That is my all-time lowest weight, but it’s the same as this past Monday (almost a week ago) after crazy fluctuations all week with my coffee experiments, lol.
Not eating dinner helped I guess. I don’t recommend that btw lol. I hear people talk a lot about intermittent fasting for weight loss… but that’s not something I’m willing to do on purpose. I don’t think starving your body is healthy.
Day 5: Saturday’s Low Carb Meals
Breakfast: 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries and 1/8 cup (17.5 grams) of blueberries. 6 net carbs, 85% healthy fat.
For lunch I made a quick one-skillet meal of sausage & fried eggs:
For dinner I cooked (but didn’t eat!) low carb bbq chicken using Guy’s Sugar Free BBQ Sauce and skinless, boneless chicken thighs.
Chicken thighs are tastier, more tender, and higher fat than chicken breast. Plus they’re always cheaper! 🙂
I also had a sugar free chocolate pudding cup (Jello brand) sometime in the afternoon, which you’ll see in my MyFitnessPal log below…
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Saturday:

Even though I exercised this week, and I’m way more active than I was 3 months ago or 6 months ago… I’m just NOT hitting it hard enough.
I’m proud of myself for exercising consistently now, but it’s not enough to achieve my goals of “getting in amazing shape” – nowhere near it.
Today I start getting SERIOUS with my workouts, and pushing myself harder. 🙂
How are things going for you?
It’s day 6 today – did you exercise this week? What kind of low carb meals are YOU eating? Are you experiencing any challenges or struggles with your goals?
I always look forward to hearing from you! 🙂
