Day 24: Loving those almonds

Lost: 0  Total weight loss: 13.5 pounds

Fridays I work at home, but I had to go into work for a few hours. I began with my usual Rick special: eggs, sausage, Dubliner cheese, and taco sauce.

For lunch at home, I cut up a summer squash and sauteed it in coconut oil and butter, then topped with grated cheese.

The bright spot of the day was when my son let me taste my new favorite snack: flavored almonds, in particular the hot habanero almond. I had seen some excited postings on the night before: a picture of a sale aisle in a store where almonds were 2 cans for 4 dollars. Brandon and Lindsey told me it was Walgreens, and Linz had me taste the honey Dijon flavor next. The habanero almonds are 2 grams of carbs for 28. The honey Dijon are 3 grams for the same amount. Either way, I was sold.

I stopped by Walgreens and got 3 cans. I’ll be back, hopefully, before the sale is over. I counted out 28 almonds into small ziplock bags, so I’m not tempted to overindulge. I ate 56 yesterday.

Dinner was spaghetti squash alfredo, and this time, I added tons of shrimp since there are no carbs. I was at my limit by the end of dinner, so I skipped dessert and drank water the rest of the evening.
