Big mistake last night - I thought I could fit a strawberry shake in with my eating and not clobber the carb levels. Turns out, a strawberry shake (that one, anyway) has 71 g carbs in it. And I had the whole thing. It tasted really good, and I was well under Mark Sisson's upper limit for the weight loss zone, but above what seems to be my limits. Back on the wagon today. Here's yesterday:
  • tea with cream
  • the usual supplements
  • scrambled eggs
  • 2 pieces of bacon
  • 12 macadamia nuts
  • naked burger with avocado (2 slices) and bacon (2 pieces)
  • the shake as mentioned above
  • 3 skinny french fries (which I did not log)
  • 2 pieces of cheese
  • another tea with cream
At the end of the day, it worked out to 
  • 153 g fat (67%)
  • 83 g carbs (16%)
  • 89g protein (17%)
And as a result - or maybe just as a lingering aftereffect of exercise inflammation - I'm up another pound today, or nearly. 154.2.

I was exhausted last evening - nearly fell asleep about 5 times driving home, which is NOT good. I'm not sure what's going on there. I suppose it could be to do with how I'm eating, but I feel mostly adapted, so groggy should be over with.

No workout yesterday - my legs and back were really sore from the workout Sunday. I took a bath with Epsom Salts, and that seems to have helped.

Onward! Added sour cream to my eggs this morning (surprisingly tasty), and have more nuts with me for "lunch". I think we're having chicken and salad for dinner, which should be about right.
