My weight has been fluctuating slightly this week:
That’s totally normal by the way, even when you’re eating pretty much the same. In my case, I’m guessing stress is the culprit. That and I haven’t been sleeping great, which also affects weight loss. I’ve been really stressed all week, to the point of having a a seriously upset stomach on Friday and Saturday.
Obviously I didn’t meet my goal of getting below 150 before my trip, but that’s okay. I got close! 🙂 I’m heading to Vegas today, and expect to get tons of exercise while on the go for the next few days, and of course I’m planning to “travel low carb” – you know, so I can fit into all the cute dresses I packed. 🙂
I’ve been eating super simple at home this week, as I was busy wrapping things up before my trip. Below are my meals & MyFitnessPal food diaries for the last two days.
Thursday’s Low Carb Meals
My favorite low carb breakfast: 1/4 cup Daisy Brand cottage cheese + 1/4 cup crushed pecans + 3 diced strawberries + a Peanut Butter Granola Atkins bar = 8 net carbs ❤ Delicious combo! I stir it all together into “low carb cereal”.
For lunch I just snacked on 1/4 cup crushed pecans and .85 ounces of colby jack cheese off the block:
For dinner I grabbed a Low Carb Thickburger from Hardee’s. I decided to make it a double, but they were NOT 1/3 pound patties!?! Some of the lettuce was icky too. 😛 Odd, they are usually so great! Whatever, I ate it anyway -lol.
I got hungry again before I went to bed… This just never gets old. 🙂
Here’s how my MyFitnessPal Food Diary & Macros worked out for Thursday:
Friday’s Low Carb Meals
I repeated the exact same breakfast and lunch as the day before, minus the two snacks, so I won’t bore you with repeat pictures. Just because it was easy! 😛 lol.
I went out to dinner last night, and ordered “Italian Chicken” – just a grilled chicken breast topped with mozzarella & mushrooms – with roasted broccoli on the side. I had about half a side salad too, which I just realized I didn’t add into my diary. Anyway, I only ate half my dinner so I brought the other half home to eat for lunch today. 🙂
I only ate half of it because I haven’t had much of an appetite this week, on and off I should say. The stress, I suppose. I’m heading off on my trip, and I think a few days away will be really good for me. 🙂
