Food breakdown days 1-3
I am feeling amazing, and really hope this continues.
day 1 -
decaf coffee with cream (x2)
BAS with a small steak, sliced tomato and cucumber, homemade dressing
black tea and a few tablespoons almonds
sliced small tomato
lamb burger patty with caramelized onions, roasted cauliflower and butter sauteed yellow squash
1568 calories, 122 grams fat, 43 grams carbs, 76 grams protein
decaf coffee with cream x2
1 locally made pork sausage
whole can skipjack tuna with mayo and celery, salad with viniagrette
black tea and a few almonds
leftover lamb burger and yellow squash, 1/2 avocado
1710 calories - 140 grams fat - 27 grams carbs - 82 grams protein
Went to an hour outdoor bootcamp class (1 hr), circuit work, lots of jumping squats etc and hill sprints
Decaf with cream x2
2 eggs fried in butter, 2 peices bacon
slow cooked pork shoulder, 1/2 avocado, green salsa, sliced cucumber and carrot sticks
small wedge of honeydew melon (one danger of my work - I'm in sales for an organic produce distributor)
a few bites of local fresh goat cheese, spoonful of almond butter
sauteed snow peas and onions in sesame oil, and shrimp with garlic and butter
1563 cal - 106 g fat - 45 g carbs - 103 g protein
I feel very good, and even with calculation errors or underreporting (which I'm trying very hard not to do, I'm writing each morsel that goes into my mouth in a little notebook and calculating in the evening. Planning out the next day's lunch as well) I am right on track to keep my overall calories in check, and carbs under 50g. Although it would be nice, I'm really not jonesing for my usual after dinner peice of ghiradelli 72%.
Going to bootcamp again tomorrow night, and planning to workout on my own on Friday and Sunday. I would love to join crossfit but it just doesn't fit my budget right now, and I'm still fairly intimidated.
As of this morning I'd lost about 3 pounds - even if it is water, I'm so happy! My goal is to fit into my clothes again, not chafe on a hot day wearing a skirt (ladies you know what I mean!!) and to get back to or under 140. Any or all of the above in combination!
I have a family event this weekend and am already planning to bring my low carb beverages, skewered meat to grill and a big tray of vegetables with a non dairy dip so that I can fend off the birthday cake for my sister in law and other junky SAD foods. I'm also planning to be extremely low carb for the beginning of that day just to hopefully not go over my 50g benchmark.
thanks for reading! Just writing here makes me feel more empowered.
