After work yesterday (I guess the more accurate description would be "between work", since I worked until 5 pm, went home, and then had an 8 pm call for work), I got home, had Chinese for dinner (and ate the damn fried noodles; the smell is addictive, for Pete's sake!), settled into the den to avoid watching "Alcatraz", and ate my way through, oh, probably 20 malted milk eggs. Massive infusion of nutrition-free sugar bombs. Very bad for me. Weight-inducing, right?
Wrong. I'm down to 146.8 this morning. Or maybe 146.2 - I'm a bit fuzzy on the detail this morning, unfortunately. In any event, significantly less than yesterday. Does that make any sense? Not to me. But there it is.
I am not advocating the use of Easter candy as a weight loss tool, that's certain. But it was odd. Here's the whole day:
- scary-yellow scrambled eggs from pastured chickens
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements (I've stopped the L-Lysine to see if my sinuses stay calm)
- cheese - 2 oz
- Godiva pearls - more than 10, I'd say
- hot and sour soup
- half an order of Mongolian beef (no rice)
- about 8 of those fried noodles
- a fortune cookie
- the aforementioned binge on malted milk eggs
I meant to mention earlier that the walnuts had been entirely effective in banishing my constipation issues. I will now go without them for a week, again, to make sure it wasn't something else - but I think it wasn't.
On other fronts, since I've blasted my ketosis out of the water (so much so that I haven't even tried testing it for the past few days), my electrolyte balance seems to have settled back down. I suspect that I need to try taking the magnesium after dinner, along with some salt/bouillon, maybe, once I get over whatever is driving me to eat so very badly right now.
