I woke up at 2:30am on Friday, so I had 4 “meals” yesterday. I also went out last night, so add on the carbs for a few beers and I went over my usual “20 net carbs a day” goal.
It wasn’t that big of a deal though – considering how LONG the day spanned, with a fun night out included. 🙂
Here are my low carb meals & macros for yesterday, to give you some easy meal ideas for staying on track…
Breakfast was leftovers from an extra plate of take-out I ordered at the local BBQ place the night before: Pulled pork & green beans. It was actually a pork BBQ sandwich, with no bread or sauce.
Late in the morning I had what I call my “low carb cereal”: 1/4 cup cottage cheese, 1/4 cup pecans, 2 strawberries. I stir it all together and eat it like cereal. Delicious! It comes very close to reminding me of the Special K cereal I like. 🙂
I made a late lunch before I headed out. I just scrambled two eggs with cheese, and heated up some leftover sausage I’d made the day before.
That made for a quick, filling meal!
At the concert last night I had a few beers and 2 hot dogs dipped in mustard. I was worried about the beer because they didn’t have my favorite low carb beer (Michelob Ultra), but it turns out Miller Lite (eh, lol) is fairly low carb. WHEW! Heh.
You can see how my macros and carb counts worked out for the entire (long) day in my MyFitnessPal Food Diary below.
Friday’s Macronutrient Breakdown:
I’ve been doing A LOT of fast-paced walks in the sunshine, and of course last night all around downtown Nashville too. Here’s a picture of me and Slim (my Great Dane) out for a long walk on Thursday afternoon:
I’m feeling GREAT and working really hard toward my goals. 🙂
I didn’t walk today since I did almost 10,000 steps late last night, but tonight I’m going to get an upper body workout with my Ab Carver Pro – and Slim and I are planning a fun walk at the river tomorrow.
What about you – are you sitting on the sidelines, or are you kicking ass on your goals?! 🙂 Leave a comment and let’s chat!
