What is worse is that I know what caused my unfortunate back injury: Putting on my pants.
No wonder Colt hangs out in his underpants all day. You know what? He’s never had a back injury either. Coincidence or Science–you decide.
Yesterday I went a little nutsy futzy with the Triscuits, but I don’t regret that. It happens occasionally. What matters is I made my next bites healthier and lower-carbohydrate and I’m right back at it! In fact, I feel good (aside from the back thing), so I’ve put away laundry and doing other things around the house since our company left yesterday.
We had a great time, too! And despite eating out and being busy, I maintained my weight losses so far! Whee! I didn’t make it to TOPS because there was no way, with my back, I was going to sit through a meeting and handle the weigh-in, but I’m pleased to report that I didn’t skip due to fear of weight gain. I am still doing great!
Since I’m at it, here are some values I’m sharing for my typical baseline foods from My Fitness Pal. I hope they help. It looks like I go slightly over the 20 net carbs daily, but I don’t care. I am still losing weight and know I’m not having any adverse reactions to those particular meals. It’s good to occasionally run the numbers to make sure you are on track.
Remember, I never claimed I eat the most balanced meal ever. Many days I lean towards fats, then proteins, and then carbohydrates. Some days I veggie-load, and others I don’t. It really depends on the day. So, in other words, don’t try to eat as I do–I’m still trying to suss out food intolerances, so the more stringently I eat, the more likely I am to find those foods to which I’m allergic.
Now on to how I’ve been doing with my weight loss and continued sussing out of foods to which I’m intolerant or allergic to… Be sure to do your thing.

I ate this:
Breakfast: Nothing. I had Taco Star nachos for dinner, so I was still full.
Lunch: The pepperoni + cheese + olives + nuts (as listed above)
Dinner: Cottage cheese + Parm + olives + sunflower seeds (as listed above)
Notes: I didn’t eat much today, but the combination of my back and how much I ate yesterday meant I wanted to keep it light.
What I learned:
Don’t wear pants unless you are a trained professional. That and pain meds/muscle relaxers rock.
