A Good Week. I was semi-good last week, having a Free Meal Sunday evening for my son’s third birthday and then again Thursday evening with my brother and his family in town at my niece’s graduation celebration dinner. Even so, I was down this week, sub-200 for the first time since the end of last August.

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (the latter two will count against next week) were all higher-than-normal calorie counts but for once these were not caused by cheating. I ate good low-carb fare but I ate a full three meals each day with no fasting.
It’ll be interesting to see how that affects next week’s weigh-in.
BTW, if you didn’t see the scones recipe I tried this weekend, check it out. Good stuff!

Food Last Week. My daily nutrition totals for the past week:

Last week I noted that I needed to “get my protein and fat higher and my carbs lower.” Two out of three ain’t bad, right?
My net carbs (carbs – fiber) were 31 or less every day except when I had my Free Meals. That is what really helped me post a lower number this week despite the cake, ice cream, and pizza on Sunday and the queso and margaritas on Thursday.
I am happy that I was able to stay low-carb this weekend (and Memorial Day) despite the presence of doughnuts, cinnamon rolls, candy, etc.

Goals for This Week. They will be tough to meet given Sunday and Monday’s higher-then-normal calorie count, but, since I still ate low-carb foods, I hope it will work out.
- Overall calories stay at or below 1600
- Overall net carbs are below 30 (total carbs at 50 or less, fiber at 15+)
- Overall fat is about 120
- Overall protein is about 90
What’s On Deck. This week I don’t have anything special planned so I expect that, from Tuesday on, I’ll be able to control things pretty well.
The only exceptions to what would otherwise a perfectly-planned week will be that I may not be able to play Ultimate Saturday morning and I’ll be driving a fair bit that day, probably covering breakfast and lunch. If I can fast, or only drink coffee/eat some sunflower seeds, I hope it will end up a good day as well.
