Yesterday I had 1391 calories and 18 net carbs, with 81% fat and 15% protein – and drank 56 ounces of water.
Only 3 days into this 17-Day Challenge… and I’m down 1.8 pounds already. 🙂
Right now I am sticking to 3IMAX, which means 3 Ingredients Max – per meal or plate. Starting on Monday (August 17th) I’ll be doing a Zero Carb week. I’m in the process of compiling a list of foods with zero carbs, so I’ll share that with you as soon as I have it done.
I’ve been experimenting with my “coffee problem” some this week already, gearing up for that Zero Carb challenge/experiment next week. I’ll have to ditch my usual Coffee-Mate Sugar Free Hazelnut powdered coffee creamer for that week, because it’s 1 carb per TBSP. Maybe that will help me kick it altogether. I’ll have to experiment a bit, as I LOVE my coffee. I may switch to just heavy cream (maybe a dash of sugar free flavored syrup?) or go back to BPC (Bullet Proof Coffee) – meaning use butter & coconut oil in my coffee. I’ll probably mix it up and see if I can find a good balance…
Day 3 Low Carb Food Journal: Meals & Macros
Breakfast included the last of my fresh strawberries, so I’m sitting here this morning wondering what to eat -lol. I had 1/2 cup of pecans (instead of my usual 1/3 cup), 1/4 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese, and 1 medium-sized sliced strawberry.
I stir it all up together and call it “low carb cereal”. 🙂
I had an errand to run late in the morning, so while I was in town I picked up fried eggs & a double order of bacon (2 eggs, 4 slices of bacon) to have for lunch. I was *barely* in time to still order breakfast food, but I made it!
For dinner, hmm – what to have for dinner?
I get so tired of that question. 😛
I had ONE yellow squash left in the refrigerator, so I decided to just fry that up and eat it. I did measure it first, and it weighed in at almost 8 ounces.
I love it!! 🙂
I just sliced & salted it, then browned it in olive oil.
I had a long day so I got hungry again later in the evening, and just ate two pieces of leftover breakfast sausage – leftover from our breakfast on Sunday morning. That hit the spot! Here’s how my totals worked out for the entire day:
See? The coffee is definitely a problem!
I missed my workout yesterday. I totally missed that I missed my workout too! I just realized that this morning. 😐 I was really tired all day for some reason, and a little sore from water skiing the day before, so maybe it was good to skip a day. That’s how I’m going to rationalize it anyway (lol). Although I’m really aiming to get some sort of exercise in every single day for the rest of this challenge.
I really want to tone up and get in great shape! Of course what you say you want, and what you actually DO, shows you exactly where your priorities REALLY lie. And so with that, I’m off to do my exercise early today – because I have a full day scheduled and I will NOT miss it two days in a row. 😛
