    2/8

    Carbs 11✅—- what? Really ?
    Calories 1152—✅. A little under especially considering exercise but I just wasn’t hungry
    Exercise ✅ epic hike in 20 inches of untracked snow —all uphill, of course 😀
    Housework— scrubbed down the stove hood. Meh.

    I had the most delicious dinner last night— Buffalo Shrimp. It’s so simple- lightly steam peeled deveined large shrimp, toss in Buffalo sauce, serve with blue cheese dressing ( I make my own). Soooo tasty. I make a side of pasta with pesto or spinach sauce for the husband. The flavors blend together well.

    What’s everyone else eating?

    Monday February 8th

    1- Log everything ✔️
    2- Stick to my meal plan ✔️
    3- 8,500 steps each day ❌
    4- Meditate before bed to help relieve stress/sleep better ✔️

    I ended up going to bed super early (I retreated to our bed room around 6:30), so I only got 6,500 steps in.

    👎👎 okay, I weighed in for my comp today and as expected had gained 1.8 pounds. Bummer. Now, I’ve increased weights recently when lifting and made some poor choices so I get the gain.

    2/9
    Long day at work but across the board, carbs, calories and protein all in check. I had dinner then really really really wanted more. But, I refused to give in. I still want something like nuts but have come to bed so the chances of heading to the kitchen are slim. That’s a win in my book. Now to re-lose that pesky 1.8...

    What’s everyone else eating?

    My sister is the cook in my fam and she’s doing keto. Monday we had air fried pork chops (‘breaded’ with pork rinds) and broccoli. Last night we had steak and veggie stir fry. Tonight we’re having cauliflower/broccoli soup with Carbquick cheddar garlic biscuits.

    All of that sounds delicious. Did the rinds stick to the chops? I’ve had variable success with my air fryer.

    Fasting 45 hours - just can't make it to 48 - had some chicken broth, cheddar cheese and fried pork belly from Trader Joes. Now I feel stuffed and a little nauseous. But down another pound this am. Yeah!!!

    I'm day fasting too! Right now my daily goal is 23 hours and it's going okay. I'm so impressed! You are doing great! I'm happy to find another faster. xxoo

    Calories, carbs, protein 😁 a good day overall. With the snow and cold I’d love to just curl up on the couch and do nothing but eat treats and sleep but I can’t do that so I’ve stayed focused on work and watching my food intake. I wanted to snack throughout the day but decided to do something for myself as a distraction so I got my nail done instead. Still having good move days even though my poor pup isn’t getting daily walks in the cold temps. Next week is looking a bit better on that front.
