I’ve been spending a lot of time on Instagram, and this week the #backontrack hashtag is pretty active. 😛
Looking over those updates, my own “food indiscretions” a few times over the holidays were really not that bad.
It stinks that I have to be SO strict with foods just to maintain my weight, and that I gain SO fast if I’m not. And I *am* disappointed that I am ending the year almost 4 pounds heavier than I really wanted to be… but I keep reminding myself that 4 is better than 40. “Keep on keeping on” is what’s running through my head.
Today is the final day of the year-end low carb challenge, by the way. I weighed 153.8 pounds for the 3rd day in a row this morning. I stuck my tongue out 😛 at the scale. lol. Perhaps tomorrow morning’s final weigh-in before the New Year Challenge will be better. We’ll see. Anyway, here’s what I ate yesterday…
Wednesday’s Low Carb Food Journal
One of my low carb friends stayed over, so we got up and made sausage & eggs for breakfast. You’ve probably noticed I like my eggs over medium, but we went with her preference: scrambled with heavy cream & goat cheese. Delicious! 🙂
I had to take her back to the airport, so I came home and just put together a fast easy late lunch – my favorite healthy low carb foods all in one bowl! 🙂 It’s 1/2 cup of Daisy Brand cottage cheese, 3/4 cup crushed pecans, 3 blackberries & 3 diced strawberries.
^ That was A LOT of food in one bowl 😛 so I ended up finishing it with my dinner, which was the leftover sausage (from our breakfast) and 2 eggs scrambled with Colby Jack cheese.
Not a pretty picture, but I ate the leftovers and it did the trick -lol.
Here’s how my macros worked out for the day in MyFitnessPal:
Late last night I enjoyed a couple of sugar free York Peppermint Patties. 🙂 Mmm. And in my favorite “sweater leggings” lol. I got those from American Eagle, and I really wish I’d bought 3 pair, because as soon as I put them on and realized I could LIVE in them… they were out of stock. 😛 Figures!
Tonight is New Year’s Eve. If you plan to enjoy drinks, please remember that alcohol hits you harder (and faster!) when you are eating low carb than it would otherwise. 😉 And don’t weigh yourself for at least 3 days after drinking as alcohol takes much longer to metabolize, resulting in the “alcohol stall”. 😛
Happy New Year! 🙂
