Today is day 3 on the Atkins diet. It is going fairly well. I am trying to eat less fat on this diet, but it is hard. Mostly eating animal foods is causing me to eat higher cholesterol, saturated fat, and fat in general. I am working on it. The increase in meat and whatnot is also leading to higher sodium. I just today was able to keep it under 2000 mg, barely! But I have lost a couple of pounds already. I think that I will be successful as long as I stick to it. I think I can do that!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I am still here, I promise! After over a week-long blog hiatus, I am back. I am on day two of my new attempt at weight loss. I am on the Atkins diet. I don't plan on being really strict with it after the first two weeks, but I have never done a low-carb diet for more than a day or two one time in my life. I worked a lot this past week, so I haven't posted a blog, but I have kept up with my tracking. I haven't exercised much, save for a walk last night with the hubby after dinner; I consider that better than nothing! Only a bit over a mile, but every step counts! I am down to 144, which is 5 lb. down from my highest weight ever (which I was a few weeks ago). I am hoping this new plan goes well. I am going to give it a try.

This is yesterday's intake. Just got home from working third shift, and I am exhausted!
Calories eaten: 1587
Way too much sodium and fat, but oh well.
Exercise: 2.1 mile walk, and 5 minutes of circuit training.

Well, I have been MIA for a week. I started working last week, and just completely blew off SP. I tried to track a bit on and off, but failed miserably. I tracked today, and I work my first 3rd shift tonight! 11 pm to 7 am - I am totally going to be all on a weird sleep schedule! I walked 2.1 miles today and attempted to do the "30 Day Shred" a few minutes ago. I did 5 minutes and stopped. I ate something I shouldn't have eaten and I think it threw me off.
I have this addiction to butter-cooked, home made hashbrowns, onions, eggs, and cheese all mixed together. I ate that earlier. I could not resist. I *DID* track it, though. Usually that is the point which I blow off the tracking. I have been better about tracking unplanned foods, compared to my usual long, long fall off the wagon.
I still want to do the food and fitness blog. I think HELLO118 has it right: it is best to track it all in the blog AFTER the day is already over! I never know what unplanned things could happen between 5 pm until bedtime. At least, for me!
If I stick to what I tracked, I will be in my range for calories. High in sodium, but well, tomorrow is another day. Who knew cheese had so much salt in it?

I think HELLO118 has a great idea in having a food and fitness blog daily. I think it will help keep me accountable. So, here we go...
1 cup Kashi GoLean cereal with 3/4 cup fat free milk and 1 small banana (297)
3/4 cup whole wheat Velveeta 2% ultimate macaroni and cheese (230)
1/2 Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat flour pita with 1/2 cup diced celery, 1/8 cup diced onion, and 2.5 oz Starkist Chunk Light tuna in water; 1 cup whole wheat Velveeta 2% ultimate macaroni and cheese (457)
1 1/2 cup sliced no-sugar-added pears (120)
1 serving of Lowfat Cheeseburger Pie (made with ground turkey), 1 12-oz Coors Light beer (437)
Totals: 1542 calories, 194 g carbs, 35 g fat, and 107 g protein, 76 g fiber, and 2839 mg sodium (ouch!)
FITNESS: None. Tomorrow is another day.
Will be watching the sodium for tomorrow.
