-Week Two Timeline-
Sunday, January 3, 2016-Saturday, January 10, 2016
I started week two off with a weigh in. Seeing that I lost four pounds last week, I felt great–but I was also battling an ongoing viral illness. A lack of energy led to an afternoon nap after church.
I was feeling slightly better this morning, and after a busy day, I decided to reward myself with Bacon Wrapped Shrimp (click link for recipe). It was satisfying and a great way to pump myself back up for my low carb lifestyle!
Another busy day for me, as my husband was home sick from work (thanks to me!). Due to the extra workload, I needed a quick, no-nonesense dinner. I decided to cook dry-rubbed baby back ribs in my oven, and they were finger licking good! I will be posting my recipe this upcoming week.
Another roller coaster of sickness this day. I was barely able to function and complete my long list of chores and responsibilities that I had for myself. I was thankful to be able to attend church in the evening, but went to bed feeling pretty miserable.
This day was about the same. I ate a couple of my delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Pumpkin Brownies (click link for recipe) to comfort me, but I was still fighting what felt like a losing battle with sickness. Thanks to some OTC meds, sugar free snacks, and being able to rest, I was able to finally kick this illness that has plagued me for over a week! Now I just have to pray that it doesn’t come back for round two!
I was so excited to be feeling better on this day in particular, because my youth group at church was going to play laser tag. As a chaperone and married mother, most people probably wouldn’t think of me as someone who would enjoy an activity mostly geared towards younger people. But little do they know…
I AM THE LASER TAG QUEEN, MY FRIENDS!
Laser tag is AWESOME. It is a fast-paced game, which is great for burning calories and losing weight! I placed #14 out of 36, and #16 out of 34 in game two. I plan on returning again soon to sharpen my shooter skills. Feel free to leave me any tips and tricks for future visits in the comments section below!
Today, I slept in late thanks to my loving husband, whom understands how serious I am about laser tag—and how easily I tire out. We went grocery shopping in the freezing cold to refill our fridges for the next couple of weeks, and I am looking forward to sharing with you all even more fun recipes and stories in the future!
Overall, this week has been hectic with winter break being over and the crazy weather changes we’ve had to incur. I have stuck to my low carb diet for two full weeks now, and I am excited to weigh in Sunday morning to see my progress. Stay tuned until then and thanks for following me on my low carb journey!
