Today, I want to wax poetic about a new product I discovered sitting on the shelf in the organic/health food section of Kroger.
Not coconut oil, coconut butter.
Have you ever heard of this stuff? It’s literally a coconutty peanut butter type substance. Apparently to make it, all you do is put coconut meat in a food processor and let it work magic.
It is sooooooo good. At least I think so! I ate a couple of spoonfuls and was in love. It’s slightly sweet and has that pleasant, natural peanut butter mouthfeel. Canadian Bacon wasn’t very enthused, and Meemaw didn’t care for it. Good. More for me!
I ate waaaaay too much today, both in carbs and in calories. This is a good example of how even eating the “good carbs” that I sometimes sneak into my diet *coughbeanscough* can lead to the dark side. There were many places I could have cut cals and carbs, but the one that stands out is lunch. I was not even that hungry – just a little peckish – and I ordered my typical meal when Meemaw and I were out shopping. I could have cut out 400cal and 19g carbs – that would have put me back into pretty decent levels for the day. I also should have cut back on the cheese with dinner – I don’t like using those processed slices, since they’re so damn carby, but we were out of our typical Sargento cheddar. And I probably didn’t need two pizzadillas for breakfast, either. Blah.
I did workout today, so that’s something –
5×5 squats @ 110lbs
5×5 overhead press @ 60lbs
5×5 close grip bench press @ 65lbs
2×5 deadlift @ 115lbs
The gym was super busy for some reason tonight (like I’ve never seen that many people there before!), so we cut out early and I skipped my rows, pulldowns, and curls.
So at least I hit my protein goal, and I didn’t go too terribly over – but today was not a good day. Tomorrow shall be better.
