I bet you think I’m going to rave about this awesome green chutney I made last night. I am not.
I gained back 0.3 lb over the last 24 hours, and while that’s not enough to slow me down, the chutney definitely wasn’t worth a gain of any kind. I love Indian food – curry, tikka masala and saag paneer are some of my favorite meals. I was trying to impress my husband with my worldly cooking skills, but I got all carried away by the fresh herbs and conveniently forgot that chutney wasn’t really my favorite. And then I had made it and it was all fresh and the chips were right there… but, what the heck was I thinking? Chutney doesn’t even have dairy in it! Also, did I mention I hate weighing myself daily?
Of course, it might be that I ate way too much of the chicken curry (also with chips) but it was practically 0 carbs per serving and I’ve missed Indian food, so maybe it was worth it….
So my first day with a gain this week. In the interest of science, 100% honesty, and the fact that only 12 people might actually read this, I ate more chips yesterday than any other day this week. The batch I made turned out especially good, so instead of the 20-25 I usually end up eating, I probably ate closer to 35, but still didn’t go over my daily allowance.
Tonight is my last night on this chips and dips experiment, and I have no idea what I’m making yet. I’m torn between something super easy and tasty like spicy queso blanco, and something more complicated but meal-worthy like pizza dip. Since I’m cooking all weekend I’m leaning toward easy, but either way I’ll post my final results in the morning.
I’m hoping to have lost at least 3 pounds, so I’ll need at least a 0.7 lb loss or more by tomorrow. I don’t know why I’m aiming for 3 pounds, I don’t even know what I’m accomplishing by promoting chips and dips as a weight loss method, but I do know that I won’t waste any more chips on chutney when there are cheeses out there waiting for me.
