My Low Carb Diary for Day 6 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.
Mind you, I’m at my lowest weight to date at just 141.8 pounds.
I’ve been eating low carb and exercising consistently for over 100 days straight now. I’m doing GREAT.
I keep reminding myself of those facts.
Facts over feelings.
There are other facts too, though. Like that I really wanted to challenge myself harder this past week in two areas. My coffee was one: drink less, do away with the artificial sweetener/creamer. The other was exercise, I intended to really hit that hard.
I didn’t get my workout in yesterday, which makes two days in a row now.
That is NOT going to get me to my goal. 😛
I also noticed that I’m getting more flexible with my carb counts and macros, floating between 20 and 30 net carbs instead of staying at or below 20 net carbs a day.
I know WHY this is happening. It’s because I’m tired – more mentally exhausted than anything. Work is busy, life is full, yada yada yada. Sometimes you just have a week where you need more of a break from pushing yourself so hard. Knowing the “why” puts my mind at ease when it starts going in a negative direction. Still… I have to remember my other WHY – why I want to get in amazing shape this year. 🙂 And that’s what I’m focusing on this week as I get recommitted to my goals!
Day 6: Sunday’s Low Carb Meals
I made “breakfast cookies” yesterday 🙂 lol. They were delicious. They are Peanut Butter Blueberry Cookies (the recipe is in that post) and they were 2 net carbs each.
I had three of the cookies for breakfast, fresh out of the oven! 🙂
Plus a mozzarella string cheese while I was baking…
For lunch I ate the BBQ chicken I made the night before. It’s chicken thighs baked at 350 degrees with Guy’s Sugar Free BBQ Sauce. On that note, see: Perfect Baked Chicken Thighs. They are so easy and so tender & delicious!
That’s the sauce I got in my July Keto Box. I can’t wait to get the next one! 🙂
The green beans were frozen, they’re Pictsweet Italian Pole Green Beans.
That was a big plate and I couldn’t finish it at lunch, so I finished the rest of it for dinner. I ate three more cookies, and another string cheese too.
Those darned string cheese sticks! lol

You know what’s good for a case of the BLAH’s?
The Focus T25 Workout. 🙂
No, I don’t feel like doing it. That’s the problem with feeling blah, lol. But I know from past experience that the short 25 minute high energy workout will totally change my mood and mindset. So that’s a good start for kicking this week off on a better foot!
How are things going for you?
It’s day 7 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! 🙂
