Day 9 of ultra-low carb
Saturday, November 02, 2013
Today was a very unusual day for me. Both my husband and my daughter were out of town for a swim meet. This gave me time to do some things I don't usually have much time to do, including cleaning up my desk and cleaning the livingroom thoroughly (or whatever passes as thoroughly in a household with 8 dogs who live on the furniture, LOL.
In any case, I did enough moving around, vacuuming and dusting that I'm going to count it as a 90 minute workout. My reward will be some quiet reading with ME on the couch rather than the dogs (or maybe it will be me AND the dogs.
Eating was simpler because I only had to worry about myself.
9am breakfast: decaf with 1/4 cup heavy cream, 1 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup berries, 2 oz. nuts
3pm lunch: baked squash with ground beef and melted cheese on top
2 tbsp. almond butter
5 pm snack: decaf with 1/4 cup heavy cream
9pm dinner: scrambled eggs with whatever frozen green veggies I can find in the freezer
1/2 cup full-fat yogurt, 1/3 cup berries, 1 oz. pecans
1 1/2 oz. Lily's coconut low-carb chocolate
I'm proud of my 16-year-old daughter. She was part of two relay teams at the highschool district swim meet that beat a record for their highschool that nobody had touched for over 10 years. She also placed 3rd in 200 Free with a time of 2:08 and 5th in 500 Free with a time of 5:44 at the district meet. She has met requirements for the State meet in two weeks. Maybe she will even be able to get a swim scholarship after highschool.
I am especially proud of her because she has managed to keep her carbs relatively low doing all this, in spite of her teammates carb-loading around her. It is so good to know that she will not have to deal with all the horrible health problems that I had to deal with as a result of my carb addiction.
