Day 11 of 14 Days of Low Carb
My 14 Days of Low Carb challenge is coming to completion soon! I am really feeling fantastic. I am so proud of myself for sticking to it so well. I’ve also lost 8.8 lbs since starting the challenge, 13.6 lbs total since beginning this new journey (as of yesterday, anyway…my scale this morning read 258.0 lbs, but it doesn’t really count, LOL).
I had a hard time eating enough yesterday. I was feeling crappy emotionally and having a rough day in general and that usually means my appetite is not there. I finished the day at 1161 calories and 28 net carbs. I made some mozzarella stuffed meatballs for dinner and forced myself to eat 3 of them. They were delicious, but I just didn’t want to eat.
I had a great workout yesterday late morning and ran a 9:25 mile!!!!!! That’s the best I’ve ever done! My total for 2 miles was at 20:00 exactly.
Today is my free day where I don’t workout. I don’t have time to shower on Thursday nights, so I don’t workout on my Thursday lunch hour.
I might try cauliflower “fried rice” tonight. I’m making the husband and child sweet and sour chicken and fried rice so it’s a good night to try this out for myself. We’ll see if I can substitute cauliflower for rice…I sure hope I can, that would be a wonderful thing to find out. Especially since I’m seriously considering another 14 day low carb challenge. I want “low carb” to become a lifestyle change, not just a diet. It’s working well for me this time and I’m loving it. I think I can be very satisfied on 40 or less net carbs a day.
Two awesome things I got to do yesterday was update my weight loss calendar and date my “10 lb” mark on my white board:
Good days. Very good days 🙂
Now, if only the husband would let go of out little fight from Tuesday night, all would be good.
