I think I've discovered a pattern. In a week where we got to the gym a lot, I slept like a solid pile of rocks. This week, when we haven't been to the gym yet, I'm sleeping like crap. Seems to me there might be a correlation, at least. So we're off to the gym tonight.
Woke up around 1:30. Still awake around 3. Too hot, too cold, too awake, all sorts of things.
159.8 this morning, here's yesterday:
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- 2 pieces of cheddar
- a few macadamias
- leftover soup (cold, because the microwave stopped working)
- salad with blue cheese dressing
- 1/2 pound turkey with mustard BBQ sauce
- a mint
- 2 Dove dark chocolates (pretty sweet; I don't know the carbage)
That was it. Another short list. And while we didn't quite do the big-ass salad for dinner, the ingredients were all there for me. I was quite hungry at dinner time, too. No substantive ketosis yet - Trace last night.
Continuing with this eating pattern today, shooting for all week. Short list of food implies no snacking after dinner, and fewer opportunities for me to eat crap. I have string cheese and strawberries with me today to eat at work - partly to get the strawberries eaten before they go bad.
I do hope we really make the gym tonight. Didn't go last night because my thighs were in pain. One last blast from the gardening over the weekend - at least I hope it was one last blast.
