Here’s my Low Carb Diary for Day 7 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.
It’s time to weigh-in! If you’re participating in our Challenge Facebook Group, here’s the group weigh-in thread. 🙂 Otherwise feel free to comment here on this post, on instagram, or just update your weight in MyFitnessPal if you prefer to keep it private.
I was in a crap mood ALL day yesterday. I guess you could tell that from my last post. 🙄 lol…
I did get my workout in though, not because I wanted to but because I forced myself to get up and do it.
I’m glad I did, though. I’m loving the results of all the exercise I’ve been doing the last few months! 🙂
It was just one of those days where I wanted to crawl in bed and pull the covers over my head. So I did, lol. Then I ended up sleeping most of the afternoon, and sleeping good last night too. I must have really needed it!
My own weigh-in is nothing exciting. I’m back to my starting weight from a week ago and holding there for the last three days. 🙂 I’m happy with that though. I’m 141.8 pounds – and almost nervous about dipping into the 130’s!
Day 7: Monday’s Low Carb Meals
I had a healthy low carb breakfast – my favorite “Low Carb Cereal” with 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries and 1/8 cup (17.5 grams) of blueberries. It’s 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fats.
For lunch I made sausage & fried eggs, using two pieces of sausage I had leftover from the other day. I just threw them in the skillet while I fried the eggs. 🙂
I love sausage and eggs… so simple, and so easy!
After that meal is when I went back to bed and slept most of the afternoon. 😛
I had a consulting session to do for an hour, so I finally got up and grabbed a quick snack of pecans and mozzarella sticks.
I kept meaning to make some kind of “healthy dinner” (you know, with something green on my plate) but I just could not be bothered with cooking – or food even, really. I was hungry, just not in the mood.
I ended up eating 3 of my cookies which I heated up and ate hot out of the oven 🙂 YUM! That plus 24 more ounces of water, and I was plenty satisfied.
It was late when I finally did my workout (after 11pm!). My legs were aching so instead of the Focus T25 workout I wanted to do yesterday, I just did tricep dips & my ab carver. That felt GOOD though. 🙂
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Monday:
My Fitbit Steps above, 790 haha. My Fitbit was on charge most of the day. 🙂 I totally forgot about it. Oops! There’s no telling how many steps I really got. I doubt it was that many though, lol.
How about you – Did you weigh in today?
I would love to hear how the challenge is going for you, what workouts you’re doing and what you’re eating – and anything you’re struggling with.
I’ll tell you what I’m struggling with… boredom! And annoyance with the kitchen in general, lol. I’m thinking some good low carb take-out will be on my menu this week!
That reminds me, Applebee’s has some new “Wood Fire Grill Salads” I want to try. You can order online now too, and pick it up at Carside-To-Go. And I just noticed they have a $5 off coupon code for your first online order. Bingo! 🙂
