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
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
1/2 Chicken, green salad and ranch dressing

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!!
