Join us for the Fall 2016 Low Carb Challenge!
As promised, I’ll be posting my daily food & exercise diaries here for you.
Then you can reply with yours – so we can keep each other accountable to our weight loss & fitness goals.
That will also give us an opportunity to share different food & exercise ideas so we can all mix things up a bit.:)
Did you weigh-in yesterday? If not you can comment here, or go to the Fall Fitness Challenge post. That’s where the weigh in link is, and the fitness challenge details too.
I don’t remember if I weighed in or not, because I’ve been on an upside down schedule (lol). Anyway, I’m down a full pound!!
I feel like I waited AGES to see the scales move again, lol. NICE!
I did my full body composition workup too, so I’ll share that with you as well…
First, here’s what I ate yesterday:
Monday’s Low Carb Meals
I was serious about the pizza & pancakes. 🙂 That’s literally ALL I ate yesterday. I made the Low Carb Blueberry Pancakes for breakfast, but the batch made two servings – which made for breakfast AND lunch.
Those were SO good! I used the New Hope Mills Low Carb Pancake & Waffle Mix I got from Netrition and added blueberries I picked earlier this summer. YUM!
They also sent me a Great Low Carb Pizza Crust to review, so last night when I got hungry I threw together a Low Carb Pizza real quick:
I used the Bello Organic Low Carb Marinara Sauce they sent me on it too, and that was the BEST part of the pizza. That sauce is amazing!! 🙂
The pizza was okay. I used store bought mozzarella and pepperoni, and it hit the spot – but it would definitely be better with quality cheeses. I’m thinking asiago and parmesan! The crust was good though. I rubbed a bit of olive oil & garlic salt on it, added the toppings, and it was all done in about 10 minutes!
I have another Low Carb Thin Pizza Crust (it was a pack of 2) so I think I’ll dress the next one with butter & cinnamon, and bake it with cream cheese & berries. 🙂
Anyway, I ate half the pizza above – the crust is 2 net carbs per serving (half) – so I have the other half leftover still. Below you can see how I logged those low carb meals. I used the MyFitnessPal Recipe Calculator to put in all the ingredients for each meal.
Here’s My MyFitnessPal Diary for Monday:
Here’s my current full body composition:
I have two scales. A regular digital scale that just shows my weight, and the body composition scale too. The screenshot above is from the app that came with my Easy@Home Bluetooth Body Fat Digital Scale.
On June 8th (90’ish days ago) I weighed 146.8 and my Body Fat was 33.3%. My BMI was 24.5, and barely into the yellow range (“overweight”).
I love having a bigger picture and a more clear view of my progress!
I’m 8.6 pounds lighter than I was then, but my body still looks the same.
I’m down a size of course, but I still have the same problem areas. Specifically my hips, butt, thighs & belly. I have photos from that day (June 9th actually) that I’m too embarrassed to share with you right now (lol)… but my goal is to have an AFTER picture I’m PROUD of to show beside it soon!
I so want the dimples & jiggles to be GONE. 😳
I’m pleased to be down another pound, but even happier that I managed to get in a good workout yesterday. This fitness challenge is EXACTLY what I needed to get back in the daily routine of toning!
