Time for my weekly KISS update, when I check my progress, adjust my strategies, plan my meals, and prepare as much as I can for a successful week of healthy living.
This has been a very odd and hectic two weeks for me. Due to an intense travel schedule (I flew from the east coast to the west coast and back with 48 hours!) and a few major ‘life’ things popping up, I was unable to follow my normally scheduled programming of weighing in each morning and prepping my food for the week. This is a good thing though! This week has been an opportunity to practice staying low carb & keto on the fly when life isn’t exactly cooperating (because life will NOT always cooperate). Airports and airlines are not the easiest to navigate (nor are 9 hour layovers) and stress eating is definitely a threat. I managed to cope with protein bars, nuts, and bunless fast food burgers. It wasn’t the best of times, but it wasn’t the worst of times either.
Moving on, I am back to regularly scheduled programming and will have a week’s worth of stats to share next Sunday. In the meantime, here is my planning for this week.
The cheeseburger quiche I made for lunch is a recipe from Linda Sue’s website. If you haven’t ever checked it out, you’re welcome. The ingredients were simple…
After browning the ground beef, mushrooms and onions in bacon grease I had leftover from breakfast (YUM), I placed it in a pie dish and covered it with shredded cheese. Then I mixed 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of mayo and poured the ‘custard’ over the top and baked for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
Once crispy, cheesy, ooey gooey, bubbly, and brown, I took it out and portioned into 5 containers for each workday lunch.
So, that was all the prep I needed this week to ensure I transition back to normal after a couple weeks of cray-cray (life schedule, not eating). I’m looking forward to easing back into a routine and just going through the motions. There is something I find comforting about that and know I need to provide that for myself as a form of self-care whenever possible. Last week, it wasn’t possible; this week, having five containers of cheeseburger quiche in the fridge is making me feel like I am a woman who has her life together. 😉
Hope everyone has a healthy low carb / keto week!
