I had a rough day yesterday. I’m not even sure why – no reason, really. You know how those days can be. They just come out of nowhere. 😛 I feel MUCH better this morning though!
The only exercise I got yesterday was housework – but I did some moving and lifting and bending. Still, I meant to go for a walk last night. It just didn’t happen. I cannot (WILL NOT) allow that to keep happening. I’m determined to get in the habit of “intentionally exercising” every single day.
You cannot SAY your goal (MY goal) is to get in amazing shape, and then do nothing about it. 😛 Today I’m going to do my T25 workout AND my strength training on the Ab Carver Pro. Both are quick & easy – but a seriously good workout too.
Speaking of exercise, I have a new video for you. 🙂 I’ll send that to you next. It’ll make you laugh I hope. Heh. Plus you’ll get to see my Great Dane (Slim) too…
Day Seven Low Carb Food Diary
I’m out of fresh berries, so for breakfast I made my “low carb cereal” with a teaspoon of sugar free Polaner raspberry preserves instead – with 1/3 cup pecans & 1/4 cup Daisy brand cottage cheese.
Lunch was a very simple “LCHF” Tuna Salad (tuna, Duke’s Mayo, mustard & relish) with 1/3 cup seasoned pecans mixed in. Those are the seasoned pecans from the produce section at Wal-Mart, btw – they’re delicious!!
For dinner we picked up take-out at Applebee’s using the Carside-to-Go service. I ordered a Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad (no croutons) and added grilled shrimp.
Things like this can be hard to add to MyFitnessPal (or whatever tracker you use) since the nutrition facts on the website include the croutons. I find it much simpler to just add your ingredients individually – and more accurate too.
I didn’t actually finish the salad. (I saved the rest for today.) I did eat all of the shrimp out of the salad. I only used half the dressing in the cup, but I didn’t finish it all. I left the dressing on there as “one carb” anyway though.
I estimated about 2 cups of the romaine lettuce and 3 TBSP of the fresh parm — which was me over-estimating on both btw, which I prefer to do. You can see how it worked out (how I entered it) in my MFP Food Journal below:
Here are my macros for yesterday:
17 net carbs
72% fat / 23% protein
Water: 48 ounces
We’re continuing the Kitchen Organization Challenge today if you want to join us. 🙂 This is especially “challenging” for me because, in the most perfect timing *rolleyes*, my kitchen plumbing went berserk -lol. I have no kitchen sink or dishwasher, and haven’t since Tuesday evening. I had a plumber out yesterday, but after hours of working on it – they said I need to call the city on Monday morning. Yay fun, lol…
