My Low Carb Diary for Day 8 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.
Did I knock myself out of ketosis last week somehow?? That made me wonder… although I can’t think of anything I might have eaten that would have done that. Maybe it was just a fluke. Who knows.
Anyway, I’m a pound lighter today: 140.8 pounds. That always happens the day AFTER weigh-in day 🙂 lol.
That means I’m less than a pound away from the 130’s! I was going to freak out about that, but then I decided I should just go shopping instead. Because there’s a HUGE sale on summer clothes today!! 🙂 I’ll share the details with you below.
First, here’s what I ate yesterday – because it was all DELICIOUS…
Day 8: Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
I started my day with the usual combo: coffee, water, and my “Low Carb Cereal” with pecans, strawberries, blueberries and Daisy brand cottage cheese.
For lunch I had the leftover BBQ chicken thighs and cucumber slices.
For dinner I had take-out from Applebee’s – yay! (lol)
I got the Caesar Salad, no croutons, with grilled salmon instead of chicken. There’s an upcharge for that, but it’s SO worth it!
I only ate half of that salmon and salad for dinner. It’s HUGE.
Late last night I had a delicious treat of fresh blackberries and cream cheese. I used an ounce of cream cheese and 1/2 a TBSP of salted butter, melted them together in the microwave and stirred in a teaspoon of Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup, then stirred in the berries. It was HEAVEN. It tasted like fresh berry cheesecake. 🙂
To get an accurate carb count for the fresh blackberries, I looked them up here. The National Nutrient Database is my go-to resource for nutrition facts on any foods without labels, like fresh produce or berries you pick yourself. 🙂

It’s Time To Shop For Smaller Clothes!
American Eagle has their shorts on sale today. They are on Ebates so I get cashback shopping online there! I’m going to order size 8 shorts while they are on sale. 🙂
I’m SO excited. The denim shorts I’ve been wearing lately are from American Eagle and size 10, and they are SO comfortable… but too big on me already.
