Survived the day yesterday, but it was painful.  Turns out that drinking two Red Bulls in two days to substitute for needed sleep was not all that effective.  I felt pretty much physically ill all day.  Bouillon helped a bit, so I had two of them.  Got home through nasty traffic that felt much like a personal insult - obviously, it wasn't, but I was tired enough to take it that way.  Got home, ate, read a bit, slept like the dead - good enough for more.

The scale was happier with me this morning - 149.2.  And going down, thank you very much.  We're all fooded out, more or less, and opting for simpler things for a while.  Here's yesterday in toto:
  • tea with cream
  • cheese
  • the usual supplements for Monday
  • bouillon (twice)
  • water (also helped with the general malaise)
  • more cheese
  • salad with ranch dressing
  • turkey breast (one of the cooked ones from the deli)
  • iced tea
  • walnuts
  • strawberry ice cream
And that was it.  It was plenty.  The Salade Nicoise is still in the future; we have pork chops for dinner tonight - after Elizabeth and I go for a walk, since Lee will be late.  Maybe some Southern-style green beans with them.

The munchies seem to have gone away, I'm happy to say.  That was weird; I had cravings for things I haven't eaten in years.  I'm assuming it was the phyto-estrogens from the soy in Estroven taking root.  If things stabilize, I would guess they won't recur.  But I will be watching for them.
