Hey, what kind of challenge would everyone like for next week???

Well, being selfish about the answer, I'd pick a TRACKING challenge, to journal every morsel of food.

You could always then capture your calories & carb counts ;-)

My husband and I are going on our first couple-only short trip since my daughter was born almost a year ago, and while I don't expect to be PERFECT I do intend to stay mainly on plan, and publicly journaling my food will help me! (probably won't be able to check in while away but it's only 2 1/2 days)

Thoughts?

Time to face the music! I failed yesterday. I did so well until we ate out. even my dinner choice was on point. But then I gave into dessert. Hubby and I split a piece of cake. The restaurant was NAMED after their cake so it seemed silly not to try it. It was super delicious but I am not sure it was worth it. It came close to being worth it, but I predict water retention galore.

Breakfast: coffee w/ heavy cream
lunch: Avocado brownie
Dinner: tri-tip steak, squash and blue cheese au gratin (OMG THIS WAS AWESOME!) small salad with a vinagrette dressing.

FAIL:Whiskey Cake: toffee torte, buffalo trace bourbon anglaise, spiced pecans, whipped cream

My calories before dinner were at 500 calories with 3% net carbs, 7% protein, 90% fat

Without the cake the day would have been spot on I beleive.

Keeping track of every food eaten, licked, bitten, tasted etc.. sounds good to me! (Might help keep me away from those darn Almonds that are the only thing I can think of that stalled my weight loss these months! AHAH!

5/1 224.0 (-.8 and total -1.8 YAY!!!)
5/2 224.6 (+.6 and total -1.2)
5/3 223.4 (-1.2 and total - 2.4 IN 1 WEEK and NOT my WOOSH Week!) Hooray! Still have 2 weighins left

So far so good being right back on track. AAANNNNDDD according to my ketostix I wasn't knocked out of ketosis. I had trace ketones this morning but was back to moderate this afternoon.

I went on a hike with a friend this morning and hiked 5.5 miles of trails so I think that helped burn through whatever managed to store itself pretty fast.

so far:

Breakfast: Almond milk and heavy whipping cream with some sf flavor syrup
lunch: Quest bar on hike
snack: avocado brownie
dinner (planned) we are eating out again at a place we go often I plan to get the steak cobb salad and a diet coke.

I'm hanging in. Hoping to see some good news on the scale in the morning.

Just got home from a concert so there won't be much sleep for me tonight.

Happy Birthday Sue!

I'm in for another week of tracking.

Daily weights for challenge :
185.8 Apr 28
185.0 Apr 29
185.6 Apr 30
186.4 May 1
185.4 May 2
187.2 May 3
187.2 May 4
185.4 May 5

Sunday wrap up :
Planned :
B : bulletproof coffee
L: bone broth soup, leftover cabbage, asparagus & beef, sugar free rhubarb, kumquats, coconut chips if still hungry
D : roast chicken, raw broccoli salad, some kind of veggie, coconut milk & berries

Actual:
B : bulletproof coffee
L: bone broth soup, leftover cabbage, asparagus & beef, sugar free rhubarb, kumquats
D : coconut chips, bacon, artichoke, roast beef w chimmichurri sauce

Numbers :
1627 Calories, 60% fat (111g), 26% protein (110g), 14% carb (59g/ 26g fiber)

And for the week, my average was

1693 calories, 64% fat (121g), 23% protein (98g), 12% carb (53g/ 21g fiber = 32g net)

So it raises a few questions for me, mainly is it enough to lose? Because frankly I'd have a hard time eating much less, I'm already pushing back hunger somewhat, which I think it due to the somewhat-higher carbs.

I've wondered if I have too much protein but my recent reading on protein makes me think that it's probably ok (although I'd hesitate to go higher).

The carbs? Certainly well above induction and much higher than I was eating when I was dropping weight relatively quickly and consistently (I was eating around 20g total carbs) but I feel so much better with more veggies I'm not giving up yet.

I'm going to assume this is just my body's normal flat-flat-flat period (I dropped several pounds last week) and keep at the same eating plan a few more weeks before I try to tweak anything. Also, I'm going on a short vacation later this week and just staying close to this is going to be a challenge, this is not the time to try to cut.

This week's challenge thread, a TRACKING challenge, is here :
TRACKING week challenge May 5th-11th 2014

I'll probably join in on the next INDUCTION challenge next month though and follow the rules - I'd kinda like to see what happens if I drop the carbs back down...
