It feels really good to be “back in the zone”! Plus, I love a good challenge. 🙂 I find it FUN, and also highly motivating.
Yesterday I consumed 1744 calories, 19 net carbs (23 total), with 69% fat and 26% protein. I drank 48 ounces of water, and my exercise for the day was: water skiing in the sunshine!
One thing I’m experimenting with this week is my coffee. I LOVE my coffee. I mentioned yesterday that I would love to ultimately “go black”. The idea of it makes me cringe at the moment, but I know it doesn’t take long for your taste buds to totally change. I remember drinking regular soda (many, many years ago) and how hard it was to switch to diet. But now I can’t even stand the taste of a regular soda!
So there’s hope for my coffee. I think. 😐 lol…

Day TWO Low Carb Meals & Macros
For breakfast I had sausage and fried eggs. An egg is .6 carbs, so you should count 1 carb for every two eggs you eat. Very simple 1 carb breakfast!
For lunch I grabbed a Low Carb All-American Thickburger from Hardee’s.
This one didn’t look near as good as my last one, but it was still good.
I had to custom order it, because the bun-style version comes with chips and all kind of things on it. I ordered it like this: “The all-american thickburger, low carb style – no bun, in a lettuce wrap – plain with cheese. So just hamburger, hot dog, cheese, mayo & mustard – in a lettuce wrap.”
I grabbed that low carb burger on the go because I was heading to Tim’s Ford Lake where we spent the rest of the afternoon & evening.
And that’s where I got my exercise for the day. 🙂
I got up on the water ski, twice actually, and hit it as hard as I could.
I can’t ski for long, but it’s an amazing full-body workout. Here’s a video of me skiing summer before last. I’m able to ski longer and harder every year.
I had two beers while we were out on the boat. Michelob Ultra is my favorite, and it’s 2.6 carbs per 12 ounce bottle. I would normally have three, but I limited it to two intentionally – to save room for green veggie carbs at dinner.
When we came off the lake, we ordered take-out from Ruby Tuesday. I scanned over the menu and nutrition facts on the way home, after taking a quick look at my macros in MyFitnessPal so far for the day, and decided on the salmon & veggies.
I got the Plain Grilled Salmon with fresh green beans and grilled zucchini. I also ordered a side of their delicious Parmesan Cream Sauce, because it’s low carb – and delicious for dipping! 🙂
