Didn't eat brats yesterday, or get a walk in - I went and had a massage instead, after a quick salad at Chik-Fil-A. The twinge in my lower back from last week's stupid table lifting got worse, so I had it worked on. It's better, although not fixed, quite.
I ate mostly well - until sundown. After we got home from the massage, I was still hungry, and wanted salt. So I grabbed the bag of potato chips and brought it into the living room with me. Big mistake. I did not finish it, I'm glad to say, but I ate a lot of them. One at a time, savoring every bite. They were delicious. Should I have done it? Maybe not. It seems not to have caused any gain, at least. 152.6 again this morning.
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- scrambled eggs
- macadamia nuts - about 1/3 cup
- a piece of cheese
- Chik-Fil-A salad with fruit, chicken, and ranch dressing
- potato chips
- 4 salted dark chocolate almonds
With that, my ketones were Small at bedtime - was I eliminating unnecessary ones because of the bolus of starch? Don't know.
Sleep was pretty good - a brief wakeup around 2:30 am and awake for good at 5:00. I fell asleep without audio assistance - something I've been trying to wean myself from recently (also without melatonin, ditto). It's getting darker earlier and lasting a lot longer - whether that is affecting it or not, I don't know. I'm quite certain that the cooler temperatures are helping a lot.
