First of all, this is what I woke up to find on my nightstand this morning...
Can you say, PMS? *blush*
No, I didn't eat the whole carton of coconut milk "ice cream" in one sitting, and I didn't drink the beer along with it, but you get the point. This is Not Good.
And another thing. I picked up Everyday Happy Herbivore by Lindsay S. Nixon, started browsing through the recipes this morning, and while they all look super-yummy, I was shocked to find really high calorie content in some of them. The Mardi Gras Beans & rice, for example, has 608 calories per serving. Whoa! That's a lot, don't you think? I mean, it's low-fat and healthy but a calorie is still a calorie, right? In order to lose weight you've got to reduce those buggers one way or another!I don't think you can mindlessly graze all day long, even of the "good stuff," and still maintain (or achieve) your girlish figure. Since Ms. Nixon does provide a 1,200 calorie menu planning service, I'm thinking she must agree.
So, what the hell does this mean? I don't freaking know. Do I count calories? POINTS? Or just give up and wallow in some more fatty "health food."
Seriously discouraged here, am blaming the hormones.
