I thought I'd done this yesterday; apparently not. Yesterday I was 159.2 after a Monday that included eating 2 candy bars and a bag (the last one, thankfully) of trail mix. Stress, and a lot of it.

Today (no let up on the stress), I'm at 157.8. Which I think is reflective of reality, since I was at 157.6 on Sunday. Here's yesterday:
  • tea with cream
  • lemon jello water
  • the usual supplements
  • scrambled eggs
  • turkey sausage
  • almonds (probably 30-40)
  • steak
  • salad with vinaigrette
  • 2 squares of dark chocolate with almonds
  • more tea with cream
Not bad - much more like I would like to be eating all the time. Did it help with the stress? Probably not. Only finishing the move and being settled in the new house will help with that, I think. And it may take getting through that and through a job search down there before I am fully past it.

Pretty tired this morning - we worked until 9 last night on packing, and I got the dishes and glassware done. My parents are coming to help today, which I appreciate, but I wanted to make sure that I packed anything I'd be bummed about breaking, so that I would only be able to blame myself. There are still breakables to be packed, but they're things that wouldn't cause as much heartburn. It sucks to be a perfectionist like this sometimes.

Made goal on my FuelBand from all the packing. Also spent most of the evening in a clammy sweat - it's been super humid here this summer so far, and that means the swamp cooler is making the house more humid, not cooler. Annoying, for sure. Took 2 aspirin and a melatonin and crashed - a brief wakeup at midnight was my only disruption until after 5. Unfortunately, I think I need more sleep. Lots more. Very groggy this morning.
