I am breaking my self-imposed "nuts only on the weekend" rule today. I realized I'm going to be, once again, doing a whole lot of running around with limited time for food preparation. I might not HAVE to do it, I have some meat in the oven right now (not a euphemism, HA!), but just in case. nuts are a better on-the-go option than fast food, imo.

and as I feared, seeing my calorie counts is starting to get to me. too many years of low-cal diet programming. that one day that I went over 2000 freaked me out! I'm going to continue on with it for the rest of the week, I guess, and see how I feel about it by the weekend.

*epiphany* - I like to eat nuts when I'm stressed out! today has been disappointing, annoying, upsetting. and it's not even 1:30 yet! today, I'm the litter box, not the cat. on that note:

boneless short ribs
mixed nuts

(annoyingly, I feel happier after eating said nuts. they're still off the menu as snacks until the weekend.)

boneless short ribs
few more nuts

I just didn't feel like veggies today.

Even with the nuts, you still managed to stay LC while having a tough day. Good job on that.

I hope tomorrow is better and less nutty for you. :-)
