I completely forgot to update last night! I got in late because a friend and I went for a walk/run after work then went out for dinner.

Breakfast: omelette and sausage patty @ dining hall (turkey, ham, bacon, cheese)
Lunch: Beef Jerky, cheese, and a brownie w/frosting
Dinner: Twisted root burger- burger in a bowl -patty, bacon, lettuce, cheese, sauteed mushrooms, pickled onion and ranch

1,982 calories, net carbs- 20(4%), protein - 118 (24%) Fat - 158 (72%)

walked (with running intervals) 3.5 miles

Sue- IDK if caffeine really helps adhd, but it has always seemed to make me calmer and able to focus better. And most ADHD medications are amphetamine based so I just kinda figured maybe that's why caffeine effects me differently.

Ok now for today!

Breakfast: coffee with heavy cream
Lunch: Bacon wrapped shrimp with pepperjack cheese
Snack: Atkins PB Cups
Dinner: I attempted to make a personal pizza with a lowcarb wrap cheese salami and pepperoni, I burnt the crap out of the wrap but the toppings were ok so I ate the toppings. Broccoli and cauliflower with ranch and a splash of buffalo sauce to add a kick to it.

1458 Calories, 17 net carbs (5%), 87 protein (25%), 109 fat (70%)

No exercise, it was rest day.

I have a question for you all... I was thinking of creating a 5 thread challenge in the Chicks up for a Challenge area. 1 thread per lb to lose. As you lose 1 lb you go to the next thread and stay there til you lose the next lb (wether you gain weight back, you have to stay until you have lost that next lb) up to 5 lbs lost and then you can "win the circuit" so to speak. Do you all think that this would be received well? I think of alot of stuff when I walk by myself. I would be afraid to share all the crazy stuff I think of! LOL I would appreciate your input!

Hi Sue - I only post in Atkins so I'm not sure about the chicks up for a challenge area.....sounds like a plan though! I do read through some of the support threads for inspiration....Lulu

B: 80 calorie Dannon yogurt and strawberries - not induction but I need to use up the yogurt I have in the fridge!!
L: buffalo chicken salad - yum!!
D: my go to salad with turkey because I am out all day with baby girl and getting home late!!
Snack: no plan for snack

....and I am on track for walking!! Yahoo!!

Best wishes for an on-plan day!!

Sue, I'm not sure I understand how the 5 threads would work? Can you show an example maybe? But don't do this around me, I am trying to cut back my internet time and so I can't add another check-in place personally - I check just the Atkins sub forum here on 3FC (I'm also on another low carb forum).

Daily weights for challenge :
185.8 Apr 28
185.0 Apr 29
185.6 Apr 30
186.4 May 1
185.4 May 2 --> Isn't it interesting how my body loves this stable weights after a loss? Day 6

Thursday wrap up :
Planned :
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

Actual:
B : bulletproof coffee
L : raw carrot salad, bone broth soup, crackslaw, coconut chips
D : restaurant : lobster on green beans w vinaigrette starter, steak with veggies (turnip, carrot, zucchini) main dish, with bearnaise sauce (I was scheduled to test reintroduction of egg yolk tomorrow anyway, so just moved it up one night...) berries & coconut milk @ home later
Snack : none

Numbers :
1655 Calories, 62% fat (116g), 25% protein (105g), 13% carb (54g/ 22g fiber)

So, I'm seeing the calorie and protein pattern loud and clear. Both are a bit above what my targets are - not enough to cause problems, other than slow weight loss! I probably should run an analysis on expected rate of loss on these numbers, since apparently that's my reality. I'm doing enough other things with my diet that a significant change in these numbers isn't realistic for the coming weeks.

And another low step count day...I expected that today. This weekend I will be out more, and will try getting off the metro a stop or two early so that I can get the step count up.

Plan for Friday :
B : bulletproof coffee
L : raw carrot salad, bone broth soup, crackslaw
D : hamburger patty on lettuce, aspargus, raw broccoli salad, berries & coconut milk
Snack : none (discouraged on Wahls Paleo Plus)

Oy! What the hech happened?

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
5/2. *151 ??? *1325 calories. 27 carbs/5 fiber. Fat 71, 123 protein, 1 oz pork rinds SODIUM!

That a big big blip but my food was spot on so not going to stress. I guess an ounce of pork rinds just shoves up my sodium too much. But not bloated at all in my tummy, just hands. Strange that I doubled my fresh water uptake yesterday because the office was so hot at 88 and no air con.

Have a Fun Friday. Dentist for me fter work but that gives me an hours walk to get there then home. Hot again today.

Sue, I'm happier with 1 challenge but did agree to this 2nd for a week. I would not want more but love that you think about us,

Breakfast 4 sausage patties
Lunch Chilli cheese dogs no bun, no beans side salad with ranch dressing
Dinner baked tilapia with steamed brocoli
snack 1 Atkins caramel nut chew

Snuck a peak on the scale only down a lb...increasing fluids and trying to cut back on the processed meats which makes induction no fun at all...
