I counted 112 net carbs today and MFP came in at 126 total carbs. My silver lining is that the Thanksgiving leftovers I had were under 20 carbs for the meal, which is awesome (no seconds this time).
We went out to a state park to visit other family today, who were camping there, and due to rain slowing the drive, didn't have time to sit and eat somewhere. I was driving today so I had to order something handheld and eat it as-is. We stopped at Whataburger and I've never been a fan of their taquitos so I figured if I was going to have to eat carbs, I'd go whole-hog and get a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit, which has always been my favorite from there. It was good but not as good as I remember and used up my whole 50 carbs in one little handheld package.
Once out there, we did some nice visiting but it was too chilly to go do much walking (I'm surprised I got the steps I did). They made hamburgers and hotdogs for lunch and, you can see by the picture that I did good on that, wrapping my burger in lettuce with a slice of cheese and tomato. This aunt does low carb and my cousin does paleo due to several allergies so the meal was a combination of the two. They really like the Simple Mills brand of mixes and foods and offered me some crackers to try. While made with low carb flours, they weren't sweetened with low carb sweetener so I only had a half-serving. They also made a batch of brownies from a mix of the same brand and sweetened it with a nice dollop of maple syrup (the paleo aspect). I had one piece of it and also tried a coconut-honey ball - I have no idea what it was or what was in it so I didn't add that. The things we do for family.
Once we returned home, I attempted to make the low carb version of my dad's peanut butter pie, using this recipe: http://www.lowcarbmaven.com/lo.... To me, making the pudding was quite time consuming and I don't have a strainer on hand so a lot of egg pieces ended up in the pudding. It did taste very much like what I remember, so that was nice. It's currently in the fridge chilling so I'm not sure if it'll set or not. I just scooped some out and tried it runny. After making it, I looked up the recipe my dad used (http://www.smuckers.com/recipe...) and am pretty sure I can just modify that recipe to make it low carb, really only substituting the sugar and chocolate topping and making my own crust if I can find sugar free whipped topping. It's much less time consuming and I don't have to make pudding. I thought the peanut crust for this was very good and was very nice and crunchy. We'll see if the crunch holds up, I noticed tonight the pumpkin pie crust is soggy but am not sure if it has been or started crunchy.
While not my best day, it also wasn't my worst. My mom is leaving tomorrow evening and I'll deliver my grandma to my aunt on Sunday so I'll be finishing off the remaining leftovers this week, and will probably freeze some of the meat at least. Hopefully the upcoming week will see me back on track and without too much weight consequences.
