#DOACA 51 Sleeps Till Santa: A Bagel ruins the day!
I underestimated how hard it is to keep up a DAILY blog, it’s actually harder than keeping up a diet! Last night while coming home from my cheat meal (A souvlaki platter at Arahova) I picked up some fresh mile end bagels for my BF who never eats much in the morning but seems to be able to eat bagels. A bagel and cream cheese always gets his a.m appetite going but he doesn’t like when they are not fresh. This morning however, I was the one to wake up early and HUNGRY and spied the fresh friends on the counter, innocently bundled up in their paper bag. I had to at least smell them. The sweet smell of sugar and egg painted crust, the little almost burn sesames mmm… and how soft they were!
I couldn’t resist and what harm would one bagel be anyways… well thanks to Google, 1 bagel I discovered today AFTER eating one is 48 carbs lol, this means if you aim at 50 carbs daily, you have 2 carbs left. I am rarely able to do everyday at 50 carbs but I do manage some days at 50 others at 60 or 70 so it’s a good start.
What the F can I do with 2 carbs?! Not much…. I can have greens juice from DOSE I can have a sprinkle of sugar in my coffee I really can’t do anything. Solution? Burn calories today and go for a 75 carb day. I will spend the morning doing one hour of house cleaning and later 1 hour of swimming. If you go over your carbs in a diet the least you can do for your body is try and work some of it off.
