No, I'm not doing Carb Nite. At least not now. I know better than to jump head first into something... again. But I did decide to try to start making some low-carb, real-food choices. I'm nowhere near perfect on this. Nowhere. And I'll tell you right now that I ended the night by making no-bake cookies. :::sigh::: Yeah, no clue what was up with that! But up until then, I had a pretty good day. I started out by entering breakfast into My Fitness Pal, but I didn't know how to figure out lunch so I never entered anything else. I was going for low carb and healthy fats.
I just took pics for fun. I'm definitely not taking them because I did so well, know what I'm doing, picked great foods, etc. Just haven't posted food pics in a while. :)
Breakfast was 2 farm eggs scrambled in butter, coffee with heavy cream, 2 slices of turkey bacon, and some patty pan squash cooked in just a tad of butter.
Lunch was a no crust pizza (made with cream cheese) and a salad with RF ranch. I put cheese, turkey pepperoni, and mushrooms on the pizza. I had just the two slices pictured. Hubby wasn't home for lunch today, but this went over really good with all of us who ate it.
I felt starved later on around 4 pm. Low carb is completely new to me. I can't grab a bar or a fruit. I didn't want cheese. I grabbed a can of salmon and took a few bites. Lol
Supper was more salmon! Ha! We had salmon burgers that I got on sale at Publix a couple weeks ago. I allowed myself a wheat bun, which I guess is technically a no-no. It had 12 net carbs. I put a bit of RF mayo on the bun. I had fried radishes while the rest of the family had fried potatoes. We all had broccoli and cheese.
So I really have no clue how many carbs I ate today.... but I'm sure it's way less than usual! Well, minus dessert. Sugar is the enemy for me. Right before I started to cook supper, I was feeling a major chocolate attack. I decided I could have ONE of my Dove dark chocolates. I felt around on the top shelf - nothing. I got a chair and looked up there. NOTHING. My husband said there was only one left, so he ate it. WHAT? Does he not know the magnitude of eating the last piece of chocolate in the house!!! Lol But this planted the chocolate seed in my brain. The only stuff I had on hand was for no-bake cookies. I did only make half a batch, but still. Wish that I had hung in there.
I couldn't fall asleep until 1:00 am wee Monday morning time, so I didn't go to the gym Monday. I turned my alarm off. Last night, I started laying out my gym stuff and hubby asked what I was doing. When I told him, he said he had to leave an hour earlier today because he was working 45 minutes from the house. :::sigh::: So I didn't go today, either. Hubby is off Wednesday and Thursday. I do NOT want to get up at 5:30 am on his off days! But at the same time, I know I'll feel odd going at a different time of day. But I just need to get over it!
I have a root canal tomorrow at 1:00 pm. Ugh. I hate spending money on root canals. There's another monthly payment! Thursday, I'm taking DM to the doctor at 10 am and my kids to the dentist at 1:30 pm. Busy, busy.
My friend asked us to watch her pool for her again this coming Sunday until Thursday. The kids are super excited about that. I hope we have nice weather so we can enjoy it! It's fun to go somewhere that I don't have to worry about others and can keep a closer eye on the kids.
Okay, so there's my post. I'm heading to bed. I am still gonna be experimenting with low-carb foods/eating. I like the idea behind Carb Nite, but I can't see me making it the initial 9 full days with no carbs. EEEKKK! I can't even go ONE full day. Lol Anyway, onward we go!
