Well the weight loss for me is more than enough motivation to carry on with the low carb style of eating.  I can really understand how some people make this a way of eating as opposed to using the word DIET!

Had a long, busy day and still managed to keep to my goals, infact I actually went too low on the carbs.  Something I have read shouldn’t be done regularly, but when I recorded everything just prior to bed that’s the way it worked out.  At gone 11pm at night I didn’t see the point of eating for the sake of eating!!!

Breakfast 1.9 Carbs

Omelet (1/2 cup of Egg Creations Southwestern, 2 slices of bacon), 1/2 cup Almond Milk (unsweetened)

Morning Snack 1.4 Carbs

Sausage, Spinach & Feta Breakfast Bake

I had an errand to do on the way to work today, so I stopped at Safeway and picked up some lunch.  They had a delicious looking Cobb Salad ( I figured it met all the criteria – chicken, egg, cheese etc.  When I flipped it over it was just 3 Carbs.  It was a pretty large salad when I put it on a dinner size plate at lunch time.

Lunch – 3 Carbs

Safeway Take Out Cobb Salad

That salad kept me going for a long time and I completely forgot about getting my snack out of the fridge to eat.

We are having my 5 year old granddaughter overnight.  My husband went to pick her up, while I did the grocery shopping for the week.  We met up when I was finished at Swiss Chalet for some dinner.  I thought this was going to be an easy place to eat for me.  I went on their website when I got home to work out the nutritional value (690 calories and 4 Carbs)!!!  I will have to remember that!

Dinner 4 Carbs

Double Leg Dinner

Swiss Chalet Double Leg Dinner – I actually had the 1/2 chicken and gave away the dipping sauce and the bun.

1/2 Chicken, green salad and ranch dressing

Daily Total -10.1 Carbs / 1,337 Calories

FitBit: 6,500 Steps, 5 Stairs

I went shopping after work armed with a shopping list based on my menu plan for the week.  I am planning on loosely following the Week One over at I Breathe I’m Hungry.

I am going to spend Saturday morning getting some of the prep work done for the week.  I really like doing that it means no snap decisions.

At the end of her meal plans she even gives a shopping list and a meal prep list.

I even found a low carb dinner for the family on Sunday.  I can’t wait to try that one!!
