June 4 – Weigh Day

Today I was down another 1.2 pounds for a total of 10.8 pounds in 4 weeks.  I am thrilled particularly as I with my daughter’s wedding approaching (actually today!!!) I have eaten out more than normal.

Week in review

Friday May 30th – Busy day, went out for my daughter’s “hen” night and didn’t record my carbs for the day.  Although I did make good choices.

Saturday May 31st – My Birthday – out for dinner with friends, again did not record my carbs but made sensible choices.

Sunday June 1st – 15g Carbs / 1,864 Calories

Monday June 2nd – 13g Carbs / 1,138 Calories

Tuesday, June 3rd – 17.9 Carbs / 1,563 Calories

Wednesday June 4th – Attended Awards Dinner with my hubby, didn’t record but made good choices

Thursday June 5th – 11.4 Carbs / 1.433 Calories

Bacon and swiss quiche

I had another piece of the bacon and Swiss Quiche that was already made and waiting in the fridge.  I have really enjoyed it this week.

Morning Snack 0 Carbs

1 cup Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk.  When I first started the low carb eating and stopped with milk and replaced it with Almond Milk.  I thought it was just okay.  I am now starting to really enjoy a glass of it.  This morning I was reading the benefits of drinking it on their website.

My husband and I popped home in the morning to do  little yard work.  He painted the fence and  I mowed the lawn.  So lunch was pretty much a grab and go thing.

Last night while making dinner I made up and cooked the Tuna Muffins for lunch.  Really easy to put together and very yummy too.  I forgot to make the Tartar sauce to serve with them.

The Weekend

I had a really busy weekend.  I was barely in the house all day on Saturday.

I am petty sure that I managed to stay within my carb count, although I didn’t actually record anything.  I am stating to figure out what I can and what I can’t have.  Lifetime choices made today instead of weight loss choices.

On Sunday back to recording everything ….
