As I move into the new week, and new strategy of less than 50 carbs, less than 1500 calories I find myself nervous about what results I will or won't see. I'll do it faithfully for the next week and evaluate next weekend. I am very hopeful that it will be a long-term solution, but am completely prepared to go back to 20carbs, 1500cal if needed next week.
In preparation for this week's change, I worked out my limits and foods for breakfast and lunch, budgeting enough for whatever options dinner presents. Cro and I both know my low carb style well enough that I'm sure dinner will fit into the space I'm leaving for it. I made a trip to Walgreens yesterday to pick up several "100 calorie pack" food options that were moderately low in carbs. This should make it easier to add a few more carbs to my lunches while keeping calories low.
I also picked up some fruit in the form of baby food. Odd? Probably. But the ingredients look to be fairly simple, no added sugar, and pre-packaged in a manner that I don't have to guess on amounts/counts. Today I brought pears in an applesauce consistency. :) I'm looking forward to having a small amount of fruit back in my diet.
It's been quite the day. I was slightly hungry for most of it and am now pleasantly stuffed with the stuffed pepper I had for dinner. I ended the day having eaten 38.5 carbs and 1387 calories. I wonder what tomorrow's meeting with the scale will bring. No Whammies!!!
