Eating Low Carb at Logan’s Roadhouse (Great coupon for this weekend!)


 

Logan's Roadhouse CouponsYesterday I found a great coupon for Logan’s Roadhouse that’s good this weekend (through 10/30/16).

The $5 off $20 comes to a 25% discount, which is a great deal!

Since my hiking shoes were in the washing machine, this seemed like a great opportunity to throw on my skirt & heels and get out for a food adventure – for a change. πŸ™‚ It’s been awhile!

Not to worry, the coupon wasn’t the only thing I printed. I also printed a new trail map, lol.

I was actually planing my next big hiking fitness adventure while I enjoyed my low carb dinner at Logan’s. πŸ˜‰

They have lots of great low carb options on the menu, so it was a tough choice.

Let me backtrack though…

I got up at 2:30am yesterday. Only because I went to bed super early, lol. Anyway, that made for a super long day since I was up until after midnight.

I had my usual “low carb cereal” breakfast that I love, pecans (30 grams) later in the morning for a quick snack, and sausage & eggs for lunch.

My Low Carb Dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse

I was really torn on what to order for dinner at Logan’s. They have so many great low carb foods! Sauteed mushrooms or grilled mushroom skewers? Salmon, steak, chicken or shrimp? YUM!

I finally settled on the grilled shrimp skewers, and I was not disappointed. They were delicious. πŸ™‚ I got “loaded broccoli” and sauteed mushrooms as the two sides, and also ordered a side caesar salad (no croutons).

Low Carb Meal at Logan's Roadhouse

For the broccoli I simply said, “loaded, like a baked potato.”

Here were my low carb breakfast & lunch meals:

I didn’t finish all of my beautiful low carb dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse, so I brought home a take-out box. I logged it the best I could figure, based on how much I ate…

While I was at dinner I studied the new trail map, planning out an adventurous hike. I’ve been to parts of this area before, but there’s one end with multiple waterfalls that I haven’t explored yet. πŸ™‚

 

Dinner alone, hiking alone, and now – after studying that map – I’m considering camping alone!

I’m going to do a short day trip hike there first to feel it out, but it’s an awesome time of year to go camping… and I think I’ve found the perfect spot to “pitch a tent.” πŸ™‚

I’m having fun venturing out on my own and changing things up a bit. Including my delicious meal at Logan’s last night. I’m making it a point to eat something colorful every day, so the broccoli was a great addition to the berries I had for breakfast. Mushrooms are a great low carb source for potassium too!

You might have noticed I’m wearing my Infinity Ring again. πŸ™‚

After my cathartic waterfall trip this week, it’s been back on my finger – with a whole new meaning.

I can’t stop thinking about those water drops… about how the same drop of water never falls over a waterfall twice. About how every single drop of water is brand new, which means the waterfall is never the same. It only looks the same, or seems the same, to the human eye…

The waterfall is a constant. It’s always there, every time I go back it looks exactly the same – and has since the first time I saw it as a child. The water flow may be different depending on the time of year, heavier or lighter, but there it sits.

Realizing now that it has never been the same at all and how it is constantly renewed, literally faster than the eye can see, just kinda blew my mind a little bit.

It seems like such a simple concept, I know – it’s just one I never considered.

I’m still processing that one, but somehow it has me viewing myself in a whole new way. Hmm *pause* I just did a little research on Google. I haven’t done any fact-checking, but I found this:

“Your body is constantly replacing old cells with new ones at the rate of millions per second. By the time you finish reading this sentence, 50 million of your cells will have died and been replaced by others.”source

And then this video made me smile:

 

I particularly liked the part about the heart and the eyes. πŸ™‚

Everything appears the same, yet everything is constantly changing – including us.

Why then do we fear (or resist) change?

Change is good. It’s natural…

Apologies – I’ve gone way off topic, lol. My amazing day at Burgess Falls had a profound effect on me, and I’m itching to get back out in the woods chasing waterfalls with a whole new appreciation for nature – and for myself.

Anyway, do you go out to eat alone? πŸ™‚

I really enjoyed my night out and my meal at Logan’s. My dinner at Rib City the other night was great too! At least I was cleaned up for my dinner last night. I walked into Rib City filthy, sweaty & wet after a 4-hour waterfall hike πŸ˜› lol.

    GREAT! I wonder if they are doing coupons in November?? I am actually heading to meet girls from college on November 5th at the Logan’s Roadhouse in Roanoke Rapids, NC. Thank you so much for the food suggestions! One less thing to worry about!

    Hugs!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      That sounds like fun, Susan! They have new coupons all the time. πŸ™‚ Just sign up for their email list. That’s where I get them, and they’re always great coupons!

    Hello Lynn,

    Since me wife and I are now separated emotionally, it seems better for me to be around my friends. I seemed to have forgotten how many I actually have and how many care. I had breakfast with one this morning. Just about everyone who knows and have seen me are shocked at my transformation. Some ask me if I’m sick. LOL
    I’ve made a plan to take care of me, and I am doing a great job at following it.
    I appreciate every thing you do, and always look forward to your updates and adventures.
    Take care,
    Ray

    • Lynn Terry says:

      I’m so sorry to hear that, Ray. I know how tough that can be. It’s a lot of change to process, a deeply emotional thing. My heart goes out to you.

      Kudos for taking care of your health and making that a priority! You’ve done an AMAZING job, and your transformation is awesome!!

      It’s great too that you’re taking care of your emotional and spiritual health. Reaching out to friends and reconnecting is the best thing you can do. I’m doing a lot of that myself right now. πŸ™‚ *cheers*

    Hi Lynn. I think you are wonderful

    I loved Logans but unfortunately the one nearest to us abruptly closed its doors. There are 4 new restaurants in that area opening up so not sure why they closed as it’s a busy area. Off topic but we went to Logans for my sons birthday which was also the day after my mother in law passed away (this was 3 years ago). All the logans waitresses pitched in and bought our entire meal. It was totally unbelievable. I wrote corporate about it praising all of them! So I have nothing but good things to say about Logans!

    I am back on track AGAIN. I decided 2 weeks ago to try carb cycling and that was a huge mistake. I cycled right out of low carb and back onto my sugar cycle. So I restarted Monday. I am so thankful my body just doesn’t give out on me for all I have put it thru! I have to admit every time I have failed I have learned something from it, so all is not lost! This last failure I learned to keep it simple and just stick with LC. I need to not look at a particular FB group that I was a part of because they promote a keto diet that is so low in calories and it sent me in a frizzy. That group is also into weight lifting which is why I joined it but man it’s strict. I learned that I needed to get back on LC before trick or treat because it has always been a huge binge time for me. Memories of being a kid sitting in my room devouring candy brings back terrible memories but also as an adult sneaking my kids candy is shameful. So yes, I need to stick the course for my sanity!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      That’s so great, Barb. πŸ™‚ I had wonderful service last night too! There isn’t a Logan’s in my town either, so I drove a few towns over and just made a night of it. It was worth it. πŸ™‚

      Carb cycling never worked for me either. That’s how I stayed plump so long, lol. I do think it’s best to keep it simple, and I have definitely seen the best results just staying consistent – no matter what.

      At this point, all my cravings and old habits are just GONE. Which is a huge relief. I’m glad I stuck it out. And like you, I learned SO much through each and every experience along the way…

      Get in ketosis before Halloween, and get some sugar free Russel Stover candy to enjoy if you want it. πŸ™‚

    Can’t wait to get to a better place. I’m impressed and inspired to be more like you, Lynn. Control of oneself…is what I want so desperately. I turn 30 on Monday. This has to be my time. This is when things get better for good. Must get a handle on myself and my habits, depression, fear of change and fear of being alone. My friend made a good point that I can’t get out of my head but don’t know what to do with….Because I’ve chosen to be with someone who drinks everyday and doesn’t want to change..I have put myself in a situation where I can use that as an excuse. I can’t quit because I live with him. I want to give myself the birthday present of a much more sober life. It will change me … It has changed me every time I’ve done it and that change scares me because I start waking up and realizing that life can be so much better sober…in control…maybe not of emotions, but of my health and habits. I’m sorry to always talk about my drinking but it’s all so full circle for me. My stomach hurts this morning something terrible because I drank last night and ended up binge eating again. I wouldn’t do that sober. My brother’s gf brought my nephews over to visit….why couldn’t I have enjoyed that without drinking? My depression has a hold on me but it can’t hold on so tight if I take away its strongest source…

    Ok, that went way too far. Just have so much on my mind. Not ready to be 30 and in the place in life that I’m in. Not proud of where I am, at least not today. Having a bday party for myself at my house tomorrow and I don’t even want to. Can’t I just hibernate and sleep until I feel good again? Haha….ok.

    Happy Friday.

    • Lynn Terry says:

      I just want to hug you, Amy. πŸ™‚ I can relate to everything you said. And let me APOLOGIZE if I seem “so in control” or like I have it all together. I was crying in my low carb cereal this morning. πŸ˜› lol…

      We all have our battles. Alcohol has been one of mine. That was many moons ago, and I’m now able to enjoy a beer on the boat or wine with girlfriends, but more often than not I’m having my coffee instead. πŸ™‚

      Being disappointed with yourself (myself) or not being happy with where you are in your life is the HARDEST thing – the toughest place to be. I feel like I’ve lived there on and off my entire adult life. Or I visit it often at least, lol. Sometimes I stay awhile, but I always get back up and forge ahead – and make changes.

      Change is scary, but it’s usually the best thing. Especially when we know in our gut that it’s right. I will say this… every life change I’ve made (that felt scary as h*ll and I resisted mentally the whole way)… was the best thing I could have done for myself – in hindsight.

      Isolation is a bad habit of mine too – “hibernate until I feel good again” – lol. Unfortunately the “feel good” never comes in the isolation / hibernation mode. You just sink deeper. Or I do. I’m bad to withdraw from the world (friends, events, obligations, etc) sometimes.

      I realized recently that isolation was similar to my overeating – or to my NOT eating when I’m upset. It’s a form of self punishment. πŸ™ That was a sickening realization for me to process.

      I don’t want to punish myself. I want to LOVE myself. I want to LIVE out loud and be HAPPY and … find out what I’m really made of, what my potential really is. That’s what I’m setting out to do (and discover) now.

      I don’t think “happiness” should be so much work (lol). I’m depressed right now though, so I am going to DO the work. Besides, when I look around at other people… I realize it’s all around me, everyone is up and down and good and bad and happy and miserable. One person I know that acts carefree and happy happy happy happy just to be alive today (blah blah blah) is the most bitter and judgmental and resentful person I know. It makes me sad to wonder the why behind that. It’s good people can smile anyway though. I guess we all do.

      Have your party, process your thoughts, BREATHE and let it all go. And know this: your 40’s are going to be fabulously amazing!!! πŸ™‚ I’m telling you that from 43. The 30’s were okay. The 40’s? AWESOME! So you have something super cool to look forward to – and get yourself ready for… to be the woman you want to be when you reach 40.

      That just made me think back to my 30th birthday. Wow. I was in a terrible place in my life, in an abusive relationship, exhausted, a full time caretaker and single parent too, gaining weight like crazy, emotionally messy – and kinda stuck where I was for awhile (homebound – I couldn’t do anything about it) yada yada yada.

      Thanks for that flashback. It made me appreciate my life NOW so much more, and appreciate CHANGE. πŸ™‚ I’ve come a long way… and you will too. Start now. You’ll be so glad you did! I wish I had started earlier myself.

      And HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ *cheers*

    I love your thoughts on the waterfalls and life…very profound and eye opening!!! Love it and thanks for sharing it with us!!

    Halloween….I have 3 young children. Sooo there’s a LOT of candy! It’s a weaknees of mine and I’m usually not strong enough and I just say one piece won’t hurt and then before I know it I’m looking down at TONS of empty wrappers!! Im extremely anxious about the weekend and trick-or-treat…any thoughts or advice?? And this may seem totally silly to you but it’s a real concern of mine. Thanks so much in advance!!!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Thank you, Casey. πŸ™‚ I’m so glad. I can get chatty sometimes (lol) but I really love sharing what’s on my mind – as it relates to how I’m processing things in my journey to get to my happiest, healthiest self.

      I don’t think your concern is silly at all! We all have our own weaknesses, habits, etc. It would help to just decide NOW what you want to do about it. If you indulge you’ll have to start over and get back in ketosis. It may make you feel sick. It will probably make you feel disgusted/disappointed in yourself (that’s always the worst part for me).

      Process how it would feel NOT to eat candy, and how it would feel to do the usual binge. Weigh that out in your mind and decide which direction you want to go. And then be totally OK with that decision, either way. πŸ™‚

      I had a random rare sweet tooth last night on my way home from a hike, and stopped and stocked up on Russel Stover sugar free candy lol. Like SIX bags haha. I only ate once piece. I don’t know what I was thinking. πŸ˜› Anyway, that’s an option!
