Never, EVER Assume

You knot that old say, "You know what happens when you assume???" - well, I made an ass out of myself! I love Chai...love, love, LOVE it! And I get them Breve (half and half instead of whole milk) at Starbucks. Until now I hadn't looked up the nutritional information about Chai...well, I should have. It won't direct link, but you can look up Starbucks nutritional info here and when you look up a Grande Chai Breve you'll see that it has 49 Carbs!!!!! HOLY COW!!! No wonder I have been craving carbs! I have had three of these babies since Saturday! One each day! Well, no more. Gonna go back to good ole reliable coffee w/ cream!

So, induction has to start completely over for me otherwise I am going to have to deal with these cravings and that would more than likely lead to cheating. I can't officially say that today is Day 1 of another 14 days of induction b/c I had the chai this morning, but the rest of the day has to be carb free and tomorrow will officially be day 1 again!

Now, I am off to get some water - 16 out of the 64 I'll have at work ~16 b/c I haven't gone down to get my 32 ounce cup. I'll get it at lunch to finish off the day with.

On a better note...I got in a great weekend workout! Some friends moved out to Alvin yesterday and we worked from 10:00 am until 5:00 yesterday evening moving them. It was hot and we were walking back and forth from the truck down the sidewalk (wasn't close) and up a flight of stairs! Sheesh - that was better than the stair master for working up a sweat. Needless to say, I was nasty by the end of the day. All I wanted to do was go home and lie down. I'm a litte sore today, but not too bad. I am glad I had started the incentive program at the gym when I did!!
