Today I’m busy organizing my kitchen, and I’m kinda grateful for the “mindless work”. I’m not in the greatest mood.
Not a bad mood really, just a million things on my mind and 117 tasks to do. I find when I feel antsy, stressed or overwhelmed, journaling really helps.
I have a cool new life & goal planner so I may take a break and work in that.
Yes. That sounds good. 🙂
Anyway, here’s my food journal from yesterday. I’m not sure how many of you are actually following along, or even participating in this mini-challenge at this point.
I know a lot of people said they were “IN”, but I haven’t really heard from anyone lately. *ahem* 🙂 So if I go quiet or stop posting here… you’ll know why. lol!
Day Six Low Carb Food Diary
I threw together some cottage cheese & pecans real quick, stirred it up & called it breakfast. 1/4 cup of each = 3 net carbs. I bet you can’t guess what brand that is. haha – Daisy Brand cottage cheese of course! :+)
This is just TOO easy. No cooking required. I like that!
For lunch I had low carb take-out from the Mexican restaurant. It didn’t come like I ordered it, or anywhere near as great as the last time I ordered it. It had all kinds of “fajita stuff” in it (peppers & onions ‘n stuff).
I just picked at it really. I avoided the guacamole and picked out all the shrimp & chicken, had some lettuce, cheese & sour cream too. Then I tossed out the tomato, peppers & guac. I’m trying to keep it super simple with as few ingredients as possible – and didn’t feel like analyzing the carb count of all the extra junk they threw in!
For dinner I had the left of my “chicken & veggies” leftovers:
I didn’t really eat much yesterday. Or it doesn’t seem like it. And at this point in the day, with those three meals, I was at something like 14 net carbs and 750 calories. So MyFitnessPal agreed that I should have a snack before I went to bed. 🙂
I was hungry, sorta. More tired than anything and just knew I wouldn’t sleep well on an empty stomach. I grabbed an Atkins bar. I regretted it the minute I did it, and got back up and grabbed 1/3 cup of pecans and a bottled water to have with it (I was already into it by then). Somehow adding water and “real food” eased my mind about eating it. To be honest, I was just totally exhausted. And while cleaning my kitchen last night, I found the half a box I had left that I’d stashed in a far dark corner. 😛
Blah. Maybe I *AM* in a crap mood. lol. That’s okay. It happens. Actually, I have a headache too. Between that and the irritability, I must be back in “keto flu”.
Rah. Fun! haha. That’s what I get for making a few (even low carb) allowances before going back to this 3IMAX way of eating. Allowances like overeating the Atkins bars, or eating the low carb chili – which is higher in carbs than I normally eat, and both of those kinds of things tend to induce other cravings. Anyway…
Here are my macros for yesterday:
18 net carbs
73% fat / 21% protein
Water: 56 ounces
Exercise: Ab Carver Pro (beginner’s workout)
Weight: 153 pounds (4.2 pounds lost)
What about you? Are you joining me on this challenge?? How did your day go yesterday, or what are you eating today? Any weight loss yet?
I would love to hear from you! 🙂
Okay, back to organizing my kitchen … *cheers*
