@Salina – what a great job you have done blogging your progress on Low Carb. SO proud of you 😉
Today is Induction Day 2 for me. For those of you who don’t know me, a Low Carb diet (Atkins) is the way I lost my baby weight (after having four children) and kept it off for close to three years. After going through a divorce, and losing the structure I had set up to exercise and diet low carb – the weight came back. It’s SO important to realize that this is a lifestyle. There is no “finally there” and quit living this way. If you do, the same thing will happen – the weight will come back (and possibly additional weight to boot). So stick with it. Those are my words of wisdom today.
Okay – so far I have had 3 scrambled eggs w/ minced onion & shredded cheddar cheese. Mmmm – delish breakfast.
Oh, and of course three 8 oz cups of coffee (I am NOT a morning person. The coffee is a necessity.)
For lunch, I will have a chicken salad (2 cups iceburg lettuce, 1/2 chicken breast baked, 5 grape tomatoes, and 1 0z shredded colby & monteray jack cheese w/ 2 TBSP of full fat Ranch dressing. Mmmm!
For dinner, I will have Lemon Pepper Talapia and Broccoli w/ cheese.
If I am hungry inbetween meals, I will eat a couple boiled eggs. I’m not too much of a snacker once I hit Ketosis. I think I’m pretty close to getting there 🙂
I’ll plug all this into FitDay and post an update with the Calories, Carb, and Protein counts this evening (when I also post for accountability).
