Today can not be called an ultra-low carb day by any standard, LOL. What did me in was the cheesecake, absolutely delicious, of which I had a big piece because I felt a little dprived that I couldn't have too much else at the potluck. I had some pulled pork which tasted like it had a lot of barbecue sauce (and thereby high-frucose corn syrup) and some salad with the croutons removed. Only after I was done eating did I see there was a vegetable tray as well.
But by that time I had the cheesecake on my plate. I'm trying to add up the carbs from the Xylitol in the crust and the fillng in my head and adding it to the carbs from the barbecue sauce. It's pretty tricky to guess but I'll guess about 50 grams of carbs for both plus what I ate the rest of the day.
Lunch was a second serving of bacon and eggs and another cup of decaf with cream. I also had a few more plums.
I was a little short on vegetables today.
1. how much did I sleep last night: 9 hours
1. how many carbs did I consume: about 60+
3. how much and what type of exercise did I do today: none, rest day
4. what supplements did I take today: Vitamin D3, 5000 I.U., fishoil 2000 mg, slow-mag 6 capsules,
5. what was my stress level today: low
6. did I get enough salt (2-3 grams/day) and enough water (80-100oz.): yes for both
Overall a pretty good day. Taking my rest day was a good thing, both for time reasons and to avoid the wet and cold outside.
Tomorrow I will leave for two days to go to my daughter's swim meet, so may not post much the next two days. I'll also have to do without the scales. I'm actually getting tired of them anyhow. Eating away from home will be interesting. I'm packing some macadamia nuts as a snack and need to remember to bring my water bottle. We have good water at home, without chlorine in it. If I have to drink chlorinated water on the trip I'll drink too little. Can't stand the taste of plastic water bottle, either.
