Super Low-Carb Day
Thursday, May 03, 2012
Don't quite know how it worked out this way, since I'm usually more hungry or craving carby stuff to some extent, but today went really well. Breakfast was pea protein powder with an egg and some cocoa power and stevia since it's not flavored. Had a little snack (almonds and tea with coconut oil) before yoga and 2 eggs along side sausage, a little bit of tomato and cheese for lunch. Kinda like a pizza with no crust. Dinner was chicken thighs dusted with a little cornmeal and pan-fried in bacon fat then dipped in a butter-hot sauce concoction a la wings. Total carbs were only 16, including some psyllium husks which are all fiber. And even with all that fat, I only got up to 1411 calories. Yes, it was woefully short of veggies, but it seemed to work.
We had a sub for yoga who came in from another fitness center. i'd had a class or 2 with her before, and she's really good. Made me sweat quite a bit in stretch yoga! OK, I do tend to sweat, probably more than anyone else, but it was a slightly different workout. Did make my right hip cramp up in a few of the positions. Tomorrow I hope to find space for the rest of my little onion plants and get some of the dollar-a-piece avocados from Kroger and a few things from Whole Foods that I can't get elsewhere. The kids are off to Great Wolf Lodge, so I'm wrangling the kitties and possibly the horses tomorrow night. The old cat may be missing, so I need to keep an eye out for him. He just got a clean bill of health from the vet, so hopefully he's OK...
