So Day 3 of my 14 Days of Low Carb is done. I was at 37 net carbs by the end of the day. I know I can do better after Saturday because I actually go grocery shopping, lol. I decided to do this challenge on a whim and was not prepared.
My net carbs look like they’re at 33, but they’re actually 37. Somebody put the atkins bar I had in as net carbs, not carbs minus sugar alcohol. That’s the one thing lacking in MFP….you can’t put sugar alcohol in anywhere, so for things that contain it, you’ll have to manually enter and subtract the sugar alcohol from the carbs. I don’t like putting total net carbs in MFP because I’d have to manually enter everything, lol…it’s much easier to just do carbs minus fiber at the end of the day…but you definitely have to watch anything with sugar alcohol (for me, that generally ends up being only atkins products).
I worked out twice yesterday because I felt guilty for slacking off at the lunch workout. Yes, I actually felt guilty for that. Wow.
Day 4 of the 14 Days Of Low Carb
Today is starting out good. I had my coffee and the same bfast as yesterday, except I swapped the tortilla out for a piece of Healthy Life Low Carb bread…same amount of net carbs, though.
I won’t be working out today, as I have a meeting after dinner tonight and we’ll get home too late to shower before bed. It’s okay, though, I’ve done 3 days in a row and two workouts yesterday! I deserve the day off!
I’m not really craving anything bad anymore, so that’s great news! I ordered my Atkins Day Break chocolate shakes online and they came yesterday (can’t find them in any stores nearby, boooooo). I’m excited to have those back as an alternative low carb snack.
Anyway, I hope your Thursday is starting out fantastic!! Have a great day!!
