I screwed up my program on Wednesday. Completely by accident, but here’s what happened: I was at the grocery store and at the meat counter I saw these beautiful chunks of crab meat. I was like, “Yep, that’s my lunch, gonna get me some of those!” So I did, and I took it home, and I pulled it out, melted some butter in a little bowl, and went to town on that beautiful crab meat dunked in melted butter.
My husband wandered over, then read the label they’d slapped on my meat after weighing and wrapping it in paper. It was imitation crab, not real crab! I never would have bought it if I had known. But then I thought, “Imitation crab is made of fish – pollock to be exact – and fish is fine.”
Oh no no. When I put it into MFP I found that imitation crab may be stuck together bits of fish but it’s stuck together with pure carbs. I had 4 0z of that stuff and it wiped out my carb budget for the rest of the day – 17 carbs!! Argh!
So that didn’t go so well. Last night my husband made keto avocado brownies and those DID go so well. So well! They were meant to be for Valentine’s Day, but since I’d screwed up my carb budget at lunchtime with that stupid fake crab we put it off a day and had them the day after. Yum!!
And, in an unrelated matter, I am now a Real Blogger. I got a comment this morning on a post I made YEARS ago and it read, in its entirety, “You’re an idiot.” Gosh, thanks, random anonymous person on the internet! Your argument has caused me to rethink everything I know and think! Your well-reasoned rebuttal has upended everything about my journey and experiences thus far!
Actually I believe it really said, “Your a idiot.” It’s so important to be precise!
