Last night was Valentine’s Day, and my husband and I had a very nice dinner in – and it was completely on the diet. We split a bottle of champagne – so I had three small glasses. Hey, it was V Day and I haven’t had any alcohol in more than a month! Plus, I&N say that in Phase II (which I am entitled to be on if I wanted to because I’ve been on this diet for 3+ weeks), it is okay to have a glass or two of champagne. So I did. This morning, I woke up and weighed myself (I know, daily weighing… slap my wrist), and I gained 5 lbs since yesterday morning. I also did not have a super poop this morning, and I woke up feeling cotton mouthed (read: dehydrated).
I looked up champagne nutrition, and although carbs in champagne can vary by maker, it is safe to assume that the extra brut we consumed last night had about 5 grams of carbs per glass, times three glasses = 15 carbs.
Oh God. The chili that I made…. I have rethought my recipe and realize that I inadvertently made some carby chili and then ate about 2 servings worth of it. It was basically made up of turkey Italian sausage, peppers, onions, garlic, a container of simply enjoy vodka sauce (which is 12 g of carbs), and ½ pack each of mccormick sloppy joe seasoning mix (8 g carbs) and mccormick chili seasoning mix (6 g carbs). Total 26 grams of carbs, not including the veggies, and I probably ate about 1/3 of it. Oh no. 8+ grams of carbs, not including the carbs that came from the veggies I added.
The horror! At least 23 grams of carbs from those two items alone. Okay. Time to be a very good girl!
