So I did much better today on making sure I’m taking in enough calories… but what the hell with those almonds? I ate them before properly investigating the nutritional information and, my god, the fat content. This is a classic example of in my outer walrus overtaking my inner minnie. I went on a Trader Joe’s shopping spree today (for all of $92 I can eat for weeks, thank you Mr. Joe) and when I got home I just had to try one of the almonds. Of course, they were perfect, just the right amount of salt. And what did I do? I ate them standing on one leg like a flamingo in the kitchen while mindlessly watching gossip girl. Next thing I know, my fat intake goal for the day was blown out of the water. Thanks a lot Serena van der Woodsen. It made me realize that the walrus in me still needs a babysitter. No one ever said it was easy being minnie.
