Up later than planned last night - I think I got to sleep around 11:15. Work. I took 2 Benadryl as soon as we finished up and it took about 1/2 hour to work, I think. After that, I don't remember a thing until the alarm went off. I needed it, desperately. I almost wish it worked every night, but it's probably better for me that it doesn't. I don't think I have an issue with addiction, but I also want to avoid the near occasion of addiction. I'm tired today and a bit washed out, but less hair-trigger than I was yesterday, which is a very good thing.
- 156.6 this morning - at least, I think so. The scale's light went out as I bent down to focus. I know I went to bed with swollen feet, and can only assume I'm carrying water. No real idea why. Here's yesterday:
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- scrambled eggs
- cheese (4 pieces)
- salad with meat and cheese and blue cheese dressing
- 2 Christmas chocolates
- some salted roasted peanuts
- 2 dark chocolate peanut butter cups
I think that was it. I don't think I bothered with honey last night, because of the Benadryl.
We didn't exercise yesterday. There wasn't really time, or we didn't think there was time. And I was not in the mood.
Working from home today. Christmas take-down this weekend. If the weather permits, I may try to get a walk in outdoors - I think that would be nice. And I think we are in for a stretch of 40s without snow, so it's possible. Today is grey and grubby and cold - we got a skift of snow (I think that's the word) overnight, but it just makes everything look brittle. I think the other thing to do this weekend is a set of the Primal bodyweight exercises (pushups, planks, squats), since the aches from the baseline set I did are finally gone. I was surprised that they caused so much stiffness; must be doing something.
