Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!
I also got a surprise visit from my amazing and beautiful daughter who is turning 20 next week.:)
AND… I only weighed 138.8 pounds this morning 🙂 That’s a NEW low weight for me!! I’m FINALLY below 139, lol.
That took long enough, right?!
TGIF indeed. Everything turned out beautiful, but man was this ever a crazy / busy / tough / FULL week to get through – lol. Geez! Anyway, we have some catching up to do… and I have some easy low carb meal ideas to share with you!:)
Here’s what I’ve been eating for the last three days…
Tuesday’s Low Carb Meals
On Tuesday I had my usual “low carb cereal” TWICE, once with blueberries and once without – just because it’s a super easy meal, and has GREAT macros. I also FINALLY got a low carb style Frisco Burger from Hardee’s, lol. Those are SO good!
Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals
On Wednesday I had a little more interesting variety. This was a 24 hour day for me (insomnia sucks, lol). I started the day with a turkey & cheese rollup in a low carb tortilla. I’m honestly just trying to use those up! Then I had this weird “dessert breakfast” thing, lol (top right). I snacked on cucumbers & string cheese – then for dinner I had sausage & spinach topped with fried eggs. 🙂
So that “breakfast dessert” thing, yeah… I was out of all my usual stuff, so I got experimental lol. Warning: it came to 13 net carbs! 😯 🙂
It’s 2oz cream cheese, 2 tbsp natural creamy peanut butter, 35 grams blueberries and 1 serving (42oz) of Nut & Flax Cinnamon Granola (the granola is SO good!!).
I used the smaller granola crumbles from the bottom of the bag for this…
It was like cinnamon blueberry peanut butter pie. 🙂 An awesome flavor blast!!
Thursday’s Low Carb Meals
I started off simple with an easy low carb breakfast of 3 eggs scrambled with colby jack cheese in real butter. Eggs are .4 carbs each, so 1.2 carbs total and 75% fat.
Simple! And it follows the 3IMAX rule. 🙂
For lunch I finished the sausage & spinach combo, added an ounce of cream cheese and fried two eggs on top of it. YUM!
This is actually venison sausage, courtesy of Joe. He used my sausage/spinach recipe and helped me stay fed through my crazy week.:)
For dinner… I had breakfast. 🙂 This is my favorite “low carb cereal” made with 1/2 cup pecans, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small diced strawberries and 17.5 grams of blueberries. (6 net carbs and 85% healthy fat)
My daughter popped in last night for a surprise visit. 🙂
We got low carb take-out from Gondola Pizza & Steak House. I got grilled chicken and roasted veggies (I feed the carrots to my dane).
It made for a great meal, and of course we had a super fun visit!! I wasn’t very hungry so I just ate one chicken breast. I had the rest for breakfast this morning.:)
I had 8 coffees yesterday (I was up for 22 full hours again!) and each of those large mugs had 1 TBSP of Coffee-Mate Sugar Free Hazelnut Powdered Creamer in them (which is 1 carb per TBSP). I also had 9 waters. So yes – I get most of my Fitbit Steps walking to the coffee pot and the bathroom, lol. 🙂
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Thursday:
Net Carbs: 21
Total Carbs: 30
Protein: 98 Grams
77% Fat, 19% Protein
Water: 72 ounces
Joe popped in a few times throughout the week to bring me that big beautiful low carb burger and a couple other meals, and he always seems to sneak a picture of me behind my back! This one, literally -lol. I was getting some work done, but stopped real quick to log my meal in MyFitnessPal…
I was thrilled to see the scale move this morning. 🙂
I’ve been eating low carb anyway, but it’s always nice when the scale DOES finally budge – especially if you’re a super slow loser. Of course I’m very close to a goal weight now, so it’s just going to creep from here – which is fine. I really need to be focused on toning (working out) but I’m seriously slacking on that lately…
How are things going for you?
It’s day 33 and we’re ending the 5th week of the challenge. We’ll weigh in again on Monday! 🙂 How are you doing with your low carb meals & macro tracking? Any questions or struggles? I would love to hear your results so far…
Leave a comment and let’s catch up!:)
