My Low Carb Diary for Day 9 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.
Not to me because I really don’t mind just eating my favorite low carb foods, but I imagine you get tired of seeing the same things over and over! 😛
I had a great day though…
I kept my carb count lower (15 net carbs), did some shopping for smaller clothes 🙂 and I found some NEW low carb ice creams & flavors to test out!
Stay tuned for that, I’ll be sure to do the taste test on video – like I did with the Quest Protein Chips video. (Even my great dane was skeptical of those! lol…)
Day 9: Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals
I made sausage & fried eggs for breakfast. It’s Tennessee Pride sausage, but sometimes I get Jimmy Dean – both are brands I really like – plus 3 fried eggs. Eggs are .4 carbs each so I count this meal as 1.2 carbs.
For lunch I had my favorite “Low Carb Cereal” – because it’s easy 🙂 and because it’s such a healthy combo of delicious foods!
I had leftover sausage from breakfast, so I made three more eggs and just ate the same thing again for dinner.
That made for a very easy day of low carb meals. 🙂
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Wednesday:
You’ll notice in my MyFitnessPal Food Diary above that even though I eat LCHF (Low Carb High Fat), I still get more than enough protein. I had just over 100 grams of protein, but 81% fat / 17% protein.
That’s the reason you can’t go by grams and have to go by ratios instead – because some proteins are also fats. See: Macronutrients Explained.
I got in a nice “abs & arms” workout too. 🙂
I mentioned yesterday that I was shopping online for shorts that actually FIT since I’ve lost so much weight in the last few months. American Eagle is having a “Buy One Get One 50% Off” sale plus their Summer Clearance deals. You can see what I got below.
I bought a couple more pair of shorts too. And a summer romper, which is a BIG deal given I’m short-waisted, lol. It feels so good to HAVE a waist again!!
I’m headed back to Lost Creek today, which will be my 4th trip there! This time to explore the big Lost Creek Cave, which reportedly has a waterfall deep in the dark depths of the cave! It should be a GREAT workout and a FUN adventure. 🙂
That will be nice. I feel like I get a MUCH better workout when I’m out having fun than I do at home. Still, home workouts are great in between outdoor adventures, because I am on a SERIOUS mission to get in amazing shape this year!
How are things going for you?
It’s day 10 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! 🙂
