Monday was easy low carb meals at home, but all three meals on Tuesday were restaurant / take-out foods.
Here’s what I ate…
Monday’s Low Carb Food Diary
For breakfast I had 2 sausage patties and 3 fried eggs, which comes to 1 carb on paper (eggs are half a carb each) but is basically a “zero carb meal” that is naturally high in fat – aka LCHF (Low Carb High Fat).
I had a super easy low carb lunch of very healthy “real foods”: 1/4 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese + 1 cup crushed pecans + 3 plump blackberries = 7 net carbs (89% healthy fats).
For dinner, I was rushed and tired, and just finished the last 2 sausage patties I’d made at breakfast and had a block of Colby Jack Cheese.
I had 8 coffees on Monday, and 24 ounces of water.
Here’s how my MyFitnessPal food diary & macros worked out for Monday:
Tuesday’s Low Carb Food Diary
Tuesday was a busy, FUN, full day!
I was out running errands in the morning so I grabbed a “Low Carb Breakfast Bowl” from Hardee’s (known as Carl’s Jr in some places).
This is NOT my favorite low carb breakfast. It was just convenient. 😛 It tastes like “fake food” to me. Not something I would go out of my way to get, but it’ll do (barely) in a pinch – lol.
I went to lunch with a girl friend and a beautiful low carb meal! The place is called Gondola Pizza & Steak House and is a mostly Greek/Italian menu. I had the Philadelphia Chicken which is two grilled chicken breasts smothered in mozzarella, mushrooms & sauteed onions (I got mine without onions) – with roasted veggies.
I brought the carrots home for my great danes. 🙂
I also brought home one of the chicken breasts, which is what I had for dinner later that night – along with my leftover serving of green beans from Captain D’s on Sunday.
I only had 8 ounces of water yesterday (Tuesday). I also had 6 cups coffee. Here’s how my MyFitnessPal food diary & macros worked out for the day:
I didn’t work out on Monday. I was sore from my intense workout on Sunday (lol) – 80 reps on the Ab Carver Pro.
I did get over 4,700 steps on my FitBit that day though, just doing year-end organizing around the house.
On Tuesday I came VERY close to reaching the 10,000 steps goal! 🙂
My FitBit Charge HR really motivates me to move more. I really wish I would have pushed through to that 10k goal, but I was wiped out last night! haha.
I did housework that morning, but I got most of my steps in dancing. 🙂 That’s the kind of exercise I love – the FUN kind!
As of this morning I was down 2.4 pounds since my off-plan meal on the 26th. The weight goes on SO fast, and comes off SO slow. Rah. Right now my main focus is exercise and toning up. I have to keep eating LCHF to lose weight, and to NOT gain, but the more weight I lose the more I realize… I don’t like what’s underneath. 😛
So yeah: exercise.
What about you – are you back on track, or still going strong??
I’ve done really well through the month of December, outside of my one “night off” and a few little things here and there. Overall I’m really proud of myself for powering through this month as well as I did. December can be a tough one! I’ve really been analyzing my goals, my motivation, my reasons over the last few days.
When I work out those thoughts, I’ll let you know… lol.
