Default Day 2 - 04/29

Ok my results for today:

B: 2 eggs - boiled w/ salt and pepper; 6 slices of pre-packeged Deli Ham - Oscar Mayer (I thought 6 was a serving as it is in most other brands, but these were bigger lol Shoulda realized but was rushed - so in the future I'll only have 3)
Coffee with 2 tbsp half and half, no sugar/sweetener
L: ended up being a couple of snacks - day got a way from me, super busy at work so
1 cube cheddar cheese, 3 silces of same deli ham, 1/2 cup of fresh broccoli florets with ranch dressing
D: About 1 cup of cooked cabbage (boiled on stove in chicken broth, water, butter, pepper) and about 4 oz of boneless skinless chicken thighs cooked in a cast iron skillet with a little olive oil, seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic) and topped iwth onion slices - added a splash of chicken broth at the end to remove all the drippings.


Net Carbs: 15.6g
Calories: 943.8
Carbs 7%
Fat 57%
Protien 36%

I know today was not a great day because I didn't get enough carbs and not enough from veggies either. And not enough calories. At the moment it's 9:30pm finished dinner a couple hours ago and I will probably have a bit more cabbage and chicken before bed because I'm starving (but stuck in front of the computer working for a few hours).

So not the best day, not the worst day either. I know it's important to have enough as well or that can sabotage your results also!

Oh Energy level - Super high earlier, kinda low now, think I'm feeling not having enough, a bit of a headache too.

Oh and Water - I've had 8 cups thus far, workin on what will be 10 when I'm done.

Wednesday was much better --- whew, didn't eat enough Tuesday, especially carbs from veggies, and was feeling horrible this morning.


04/30/14
B: 1 cube cheddar cheese, 3 slices deli ham (Oscar Mayer Shaved Smoked Ham).

Was feeling horrible right abouy there, drank 1 cup of chicken broth

L: Leftover hamburger patty - with a salad (romaine lettuce and baby spinich/spring mix, mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, black olive, ranch dressing).

S: 1 cup cooked cabbage, 1/2 cup brocolli dipped in ranch (2 tbsp, 1 carb).

D: Pork chop 5 oz seasoned and cooked in Olive Oil, broccoli and cauliflower mix (2 cups total). Dipped in A1 steak sauce (1 carb per 1 tbsp... did splurge and used 2 tbsp).

Carbs 20g with 13.2 from Veggie
Calories 1168.4
Carbs 10%, Fat 56%, Protein 34%

Also had 10 cups of water, 1 8 oz coffee (with half and half - 1 serving, 1 carb included above) and 1 8 oz chicken broth, listed as 1 carb as well, also included above.


Although I decided I was gonna weigh weekly - I did end up getting on the scales today lol It was actually unrelated to weighing myself was trying to figure out how much an item weighed and could only do it with myself holding it.

I just got my scales yesterday so yesterday I was 352.00 today I was 351.6.

My husband was down 7 lbs since yesterday! I had him step on it 3 times to be sure lol! He didn't have on shoes either time and had on clothes of similar weight - just tshirt and shorts. And we checked it twice the day before to make sure readings were consistent especially since it was new scales!

Energy levels have returned to slightly above where I have normally been pre-Atkins. Still have a bit of a nagging headache from this morning. I'm sure working 14 hrs each day this week hasn't helped either lol

After Thursday my work life will settle down and I can get in a better routine. And plan meals better too.

Daily weights for challenge :
185.8 Apr 28
185.0 Apr 29
185.6 Apr 30
186.4 May 1 (grrrrr)

Wednesday wrap up :
Planned :
B : bulletproof coffee
L : raw carrot salad, bone broth soup, cabbage, beef
D : raw broccoli salad, pork tenderloin, asparagus, berry/coconut kefir mix
Snack : none (discouraged on Wahls Paleo Plus)

Actual:
B : bulletproof coffee
L : bone broth soup, cabbage, beef, coconut chips
D : raw broccoli salad, pork tenderloin, asparagus, sautéed greens, berry/coconut kefir mix
Snack : bacon, asparagus (I was extra hungry all day, I had served myself an extra-small portion of meat at lunch and I think that it just wasn't enough food to satisfy)

Numbers :
1742 Calories, 64% fat (126g), 24% protein (107g), 13% carb (56g/ 19g fiber)
Third day in a row calories & protein are a bit above my targets... probably no coincidence that my weight is stable/climbing. I have this love/hate thing with tracking - I hate doing it, and sometimes really hate seeing the cold hard facts...

And another low step count day... But my son is feeling better, after 4 days of not eating I couldn't get him to stop eating. And he's so cute at just-about 3 years old to be talking to me about "healthy food" and "treat food"...

Plan for Thursday :
B : bulletproof coffee
L : raw carrot salad, bone broth soup, crackslaw
D : restaurant (uh oh) : probably salad or shrimp starter and steak with veg for dinner, berries & coconut milk @ home later
Snack : none (discouraged on Wahls Paleo Plus)

I'm really pleased to look through everyone's posts and see so many people doing great at induction!

And I love the one-week focus period.

I'd love to continue this kind of focus - what if we were to rotate weeks of focus between Induction, exercise, meal planning (where we could also each try a new recipe?) and any other ideas you have? And then once a month or so we'd all know another Induction week was coming...

Thoughts? Suggestions? Is it too complicated (I'm a planner!)?

Please leave your thoughts!

Hi everyone!

Sarah, I will focus with you all summer. Week by week. I finally want to get to my goal after trying for 40 years. Ha! At least I hang in there. Not sure how my focus will look but I know that low carb is pretty much a shoe in. I do have some events that will make it tougher to focus, like a 3 day conference in Palm Springs in May but rapt least being more focused will help me. I'd like to be own several pounds in the next few weeks before going.

Hi newbies. Ali your scale moved! Doesn't matter how much, it moved!

Lulu, you party animal!

Sue, you really know how to hang in. Closer to 220 than 230 this morning!

4/24 153.6
4/25 152.4
4/26 151.4
4/27* 149.8
4/28. 149.8
4/29 150.4
4/30 149.8
5/1 * 149.8. Ate mega sodium. Need to cut that out!

Stats: cal 1400 28 carbs/9 fiber. 84 fat grams, 110 protein grams
