Didn't make the walk last night - Lee wanted to go eat steak. He plans to be home at 6 tonight; wonder if I can get home enough earlier to get a walk in after feeding the dogs (I think that will still need to be done), since it's starting to get dark around 6 these days. Or maybe I can persuade him to go for a walk after he gets back - but at the gym (sigh). It's really summer-over when we have to walk around the track at the gym. I think the laps are half as long as a trip around the building at work.
We skipped breakfast yesterday in order not to get up - today as well. Here's how yesterday went:
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- the innards (roast beef and tomatoes) of a roast beef sandwich
- a pickle spear
- caesar salad
- 6 oz sirloin
- Southern-style green beans
- 5 salted dark chocolate almonds
- 1 dark chocolate peanut butter cup
- 1/2 cup cashews
So not bad, really. I hit Trace ketosis at bedtime, and am at 153.0 on the new scale this morning. I like the new scale - it does one thing and apparently does it well - not a lot of delay figuring out the number, and I can read it without my glasses from the standing-on-the-scale position. And it doesn't seem to fill the bathroom with blue light, so I could (should I feel the need) weigh myself at 3 am without bothering anyone.
I did end up eating 3 turkey sausages today, and some vitamin D3 and magnesium. And I have lunch with me. I think I overdid the fasting thing a few years back, and don't want to do that again - it probably slowed my metabolism into starvation mode, and that hasn't been helpful.
Good sleep last night - I fell asleep within a half-hour of lights-out, and woke up a little after 5 am. So grateful!
