One day you’re up, the next you’re down. Such is life — especially MY life.
You guessed it. On Sunday, I hated the way I looked in the mirror. I still took Bandit for his walk (and Frisbee time) and managed to get 800 words written on my new manuscript — but every time I caught a glimpse of my reflection, I cringed.
Maybe it’s because I put my hair up. Maybe I shouldn’t wear a white T-shirt on top of black yoga pants. Something made me look like crap. Guess the answer will remain one of those “things that make you go hmm.”
Great. Now that song is running through my head. 😛 Get it out, please!
My eating wasn’t the best, either. At the used bookstore I went to so I could write, I treated myself to a coffee drink. I figured that if I didn’t get the sugary frappe base and went with milk, sugar-free syrup, coffee and ice, it’d be low enough in carbs to be AOK.
Not so. Did you know 8 oz. of whole milk has 11 grams of carbs. I do now. That’s the last time I order before I look something up, let me tell you. 😉
Live and learn, right?
On the plus side, I haven’t been hungry all day. And that coffee drink was delicious. I wonder if they can make it with unsweetened soy milk?
Nah. I’m better off to stick with my homemade frappes, where I control the ingredients.
Speaking of my homemade frappes, I revamped my recipe for the coconut-mocha one. Last time I made it, I added 12 ice cubs — way too many. So I went ahead and blended in an extra 1/2 cup of coconut milk (making the milk’s carb count 2).
OMG — it was delicious that way. I think I’ll be sucking it up and going with the extra carb every time from now on.
