The month of March has me incredibly motivated! 🙂 It won’t be long now before Spring hits, along with warmer weather and – shorts & tank tops. 😯
I’m quickly losing the weight I put on while I was sick, but I also need to tone back up after being so sedentary for 8 straight weeks. Meaning: all I did was sleep (lol).
That means simple muscle building, strengthening & toning exercises MUST be part of my regular (consistent!) routine for the month. Because I want to look GREAT the first time I get to throw on a pair of shorts to go play outside again. 🙂
Getting back in the habit is key. I found it was really easy to tone up my arms and improve my core strength, and didn’t take long at all – just quick consistent exercises you can do while the coffee is brewing. So that’s what I aim to get back to!
I’ll share what easy exercises I do throughout the month here in my daily diaries if you want to follow along and join me. 🙂
Here’s what I’ve been eating the last two days, to give you some simple low carb food ideas, and also my MyFitnessPal food diaries so you can see how I logged them…
Wednesday’s Low Carb Meals
I missed breakfast Wednesday morning, so I grabbed an early lunch from McDonald’s while I was out running errands: “3 sausage patties and 3 fried round eggs, please.” That was around 11am. It came to just over $5 after TN sales tax.
For lunch I made my favorite “low carb cereal” with 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese, 4 small strawberries and 17.5 grams of blueberries.
It’s 6 net carbs and 85% healthy fat, so a perfect LCHF meal!
My dinner was leftover grilled chicken & roasted veggies, from take-out the night before. Easy! 🙂 (I tend to order more than I’ll eat, and make two meals out of it – to save myself from cooking the next day, lol.)
Here’s how I logged those meals…

Thursday’s Low Carb Meals
My low carb breakfast yesterday was a quick & easy one skillet meal: 3 eggs scrambled in real butter with colby jack cheese.
I didn’t finish all of my eggs at breakfast, so I had the rest with a leftover chicken breast for lunch. 🙂
I had a quick snack at my desk of pecan halves (30 grams) while I was working…
And then for dinner last night I went out to a newer restaurant a couple of towns over with a friend. Actually it was a date. 🙂 Anyway, my dinner was BEAUTIFUL:
I ordered Blackened Salmon with sautéed spinach & steamed broccoli. I also got alfredo sauce on the side for dipping – which I dipped my salmon & veggies in.
That was delicious. 🙂 I only ate about half of it, so I have the rest to enjoy for lunch today!
