Good Morning and Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. I’m really excited about my Weight Loss Challenge that starts today! I think this is just what I needed to get my butt in gear again. In an effort to mix things up and start losing, I’ve decided to go low carb for awhile. I’m not going to put a time limit on it and I’m not going to give up carbs completely but I am going to limit them a lot more. My doctor actually suggested cutting back on carbs when my triglycerides were high last month.
I did my official weigh in for the challenge on Saturday morning. It had been almost 3 weeks since I stepped on the scale and I was NOT happy with what I saw. I did have sushi the night before, so I may have been retaining some water but regardless – I gained. At one time I was down to 167.2.
In order to hit my 4% for the challenge, I have to lose 7 lbs. (in 28 days) I got this!
We went grocery shopping after I weighed in to stock up on low carb options for the week. Dane made a pot of chicken and veggie soup, I hard boiled some eggs and chopped veggies for omelet’s. The challenge will be getting up early enough to have time to make an omelet before work. I usually bring my breakfast with me and eat it at work.
Dinner last night was pan seared tilapia and roasted veggies.
I’ve been loving roasted veggies lately. I don’t love peppers raw, but they are so good roasted.
I will continue to post pictures of all of my food. Hopefully I will be creative and mix it up and bit, so I don’t get bored. Have a great week!!
Have you ever tried a low carb diet?
