Two days in a row is not a coincidence (well, probably it actually is). I'm down to 145.7 this morning, after another evening of gorging on malted milk eggs. Although, once I took a hard look at what I ate yesterday, it did occur to me that I'd built up a pretty tidy calorie deficit - while not being hungry. Here's the breakdown:
- scrambled eggs
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- one piece of cheese mid-day
- probably 10 Godiva pearls
- a snack-sized bag of beef jerky
- two pieces of cheese once I got home
- the final 20-25 malted milk eggs (they gave me a stomach-ache, too)
- a lot of plain hot tea
Sleep is much improved; I opened the window over my side of the bed last night, and didn't get quite so hot. That seemed to help a lot. I still had vivid dreams, but less of a sense of the night going on forever without providing rest, which is what I was feeling all weekend and until yesterday.
To close the loop, no, I am not going to switch my eating over to an all-junk-food approach - nasty! And I have no idea why I'm seeing the scale go down after a couple of days of old-style sugar binges. I'm in hopes that it might continue now that the sugar bombs are gone and I return to eating real food.
We are expecting a shipment of non-ground grassfed beef today - I was expecting it yesterday, but it didn't show up. I hope it shows today, since I don't think it will stay frozen much longer than that, and I don't want to try to eat 25 pounds of beef for dinner.
