Here’s my Low Carb Diary for Day 14 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.
We have the Final Weigh-In for this short mini-challenge on Monday, August 1st! 🙂
I’m pleased I’ve hung in there. There were some real challenges the last couple of weeks, lol.
My weight dropped a quarter of a pound (finally!) so I am weighing in at an even 141 pounds today. I’m getting SO close to a goal weight! I don’t even know what that number is – I’ll just know it when I FEEL it. But I do think I could easily get below 140 and into the 130’s in time for the final weigh-in on Monday… 🙂
Here’s what I ate yesterday…
I hope sharing my meals gives you some ideas to use!
Day 14: Monday’s Low Carb Meals
I love Laughing Cow creamy swiss wedges! 🙂 They are only 1 carb.
It was a busy Monday morning so I grabbed this quick low carb snack-breakfast to eat while I was working. It’s an ounce of almonds (28 grams) and 30 grams of pecans (1/4 cup) dipped in the swiss wedge. Easy!
I did weigh my almonds & pecans. Because it matters! I’ve found just counting out nuts is not really accurate, and neither is a measuring cup. Weighing out portions is a great way to eat ONLY one serving, and get it right. 🙂
That’s my Ozeri Kitchen Scale. I love it! Small, inexpensive & convenient!
For lunch I had one of the charbroiled chicken breasts I got as take-out from Gondola Pizza & Steak House the night before. It’s the Gondola Chicken, smothered in two cheeses & bacon. That made for a quick & easy lunch! I dipped it in their homemade ranch too… Yum!
Dinner was another super easy meal: The 12oz Delmonico Ribeye, also take-out from Gondola. 🙂
I ate the vegetables the night before. 🙂
Eating so much meat yesterday screwed up my macros of course, but it’s rare I have a day below 70% fat – no matter how much protein I eat…
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Monday:
Net Carbs: 10
Total Carbs: 16

Remember last week when I ordered new clothes in smaller sizes? My packages arrived yesterday! The size 8 shorts DO fit 🙂 🙂 and very comfortably even!! I haven’t tried everything on yet, but wow… WOW! I haven’t been a size 8 since my 20’s, lol.
My commitment and consistency is REALLY paying off.
That feels GOOD. The package came at a good time too, because it gave me a fresh dose of inspiration & motivation. I needed that. I’ve been feeling flaky lately 🙂 lol.
I shopped the American Eagle Clearance Sale by the way.
They have some GREAT deals online right now!
I’m excited about my Keto Krate box too. That should be here later this week, and gives me something else fun to look forward to. Those are the kinds of things that keep me on track, when my mind keeps wanting to wander. 😛
I can’t wait to see what’s in the next box! You can see my last Keto Krate Box here. I did a breakdown & price comparison. It’s a great value! If you haven’t signed up yet, you can do that today and you’ll get YOUR box this week too. 🙂
I have some other new low carb foods to try too…
I mentioned “mixing things up” to keep things interesting, and to keep me on track, so I’ve picked up a few new random things to try out. I’ll keep you posted. Maybe I’ll find a new favorite, and something you’d like as well!
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 always look forward to hearing from you!
