Sleep last night was strange. One of the dogs was unwell around 3:30, I think, and I got up to deal with that, but up to that point, I had been asleep but aware that I was freezing. Huddling into the covers, even burying my head in them, trying to get warm. Nasty. I'm still cold, although I had a hot flash in the middle of being cold while on the way to work - and they don't help; I feel cold even as I warm up and break out into a sweat. Ugh.
150.8 today, so whatever was going on yesterday was a blip, I guess. I was in Moderate ketosis, approaching Heavy, last night. Here's yesterday:
- tea with cream (twice)
- no supplements
- two pieces of cheese
- pecans - about 2/3 cup throughout the day
- vegetable soup with beef
- two more pieces of cheese
- one square of maltitol-sweetened chocolate
That was it. The appetite reduction effect of ketosis has kicked in, I think, and I'm feeling much less inclined to eat at night again. Very grateful for that. I'm trying hard not to get wedded to the weight loss, because I think it's possible that it will stop because of hormones, but I'm glad to reclaim the freedom of being able to look at candy and the like as not-food.
We still haven't made it to the gym. So be it. Maybe tonight.
