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.
