I went into the office today and, after arriving and drinking a bit of water, I heated up one of the White Cheddar Sausage muffins I had made the other day. Still really good heated up and quite filling as well.
Even though I’d brought some Crack Slaw for lunch, and had a second option of lasagna since the coworker I brought it for didn’t come in, my newest coworker mentioned not having yet been out of the office for lunch, so a group of us decided to go out. We went to the Farmer’s Market which has around a dozen restaurants in it. I had yet to try the Vietnamese restaurant so I went with that. I got the Lemongrass Chicken (the options were sandwich or with rice or noodles but they just did it on a bed of veggies for me) and the flavor of the meat was excellent. I didn’t eat many of the veggies since it was lettuce, cucumber, bell pepper, cilantro, and a carrot/onion (maybe) salad. I mostly just picked out the lettuce to eat with the meat and did have one bite with some of the carrot salad (after tasting how sweet it was I didn’t have any more). I also ordered Curried Cauliflower since I really like roasted cauliflower. Unfortunately it was breaded and deep fried and not at all curry flavored so I picked off all the breading and ate them plain, still pretty good. I had to find the best matches in My Fitness Pal so not sure of the accuracy but don’t feel like it came to 17 carbs.
Snack Part 1
I keep a jar of retro candies on the edge of my desk for coworkers and such and took in a refill bag today. I never really dug into the original jar (that came with candy in it) so this time I picked out some that I’d heard of but never tried. I intended to bring them home to try but a headache I’d been fighting all morning, thus the soda at lunch and then another with this snack, and decided to go for it. I did eat only half of each at the most and did document them all, which unfortunately did come to 22 carbs of pure sugar. I did make a knowing choice and was able to keep myself to what I said and brought the rest home to my brother and I did enjoy finding out what each of the candies were like.
Another soda should help indicate continuing headache issues. I broke down and took half of a migraine pill, which I don’t like to do because they make me nauseous. I had ordered two boxes of the Good Pizza I’ve seen advertised on Facebook, one of Supreme and one Pepperoni. I finally tried the first and though it was pretty good. It’s not exactly the same as pizza but as an option I can actually just microwave and eat, definitely passable.
Snack Part 2
Even though the pizza helped, my stomach was still a but upset by the migraine pill, my head’s definitely feeling better though. I basically just decided I wanted some peanut butter and just couldn’t be bothered to tell myself no. Out of all the options, it definitely wasn’t the worst and I kept myself to two servings (four-ish spoonfuls).
My macros are off today, with carbs being a bit high. Not a surprise given all the real candy I ate. My total carbs came out to 64g, which is the highest I’ve had in a while. The net carbs are 55 for the day, which really isn’t all that bad considering what I actually ate. While it’s more than my ideal of 20, it’s close to my preferred max of 50. Also, I know it was a one-off for trying the retro candies so I’m not as concerned about being derailed as I have been in the past.
While the peanut butter came in as my highest carb individual item (and I did eat two servings) the candy altogether was definitely the largest culprit. The sodas also weren’t the best options since it reduced my water intake; hopefully this migraine pill will knock the headache out for good and I can get back on routine tomorrow.
