We ate like pigs for the past 5 days. Pumpkin pie for breakfast, among other things. And I ate the crust, which was gluten free, but definitely carby.
Thanksgiving dinner itself, unfortunately, wasn't all that great. The turkey was underdone, as were the brussels sprouts. Good mashed potatoes and gravy and cranberry sauce (OJ and maple syrup). And good pie. The pie came out great.
Anyway, I was super happy to see 159.8 this morning, after 161.2 yesterday. And I will be working between now and Mardi Gras to make the number go down some more.
So, here's yesterday:
- tea with cream
- veggies and dip (mostly broccoli, some carrots)
- an apple
- cheddar cheese
- low-carb crust pizza (pepperoni only)
- 3-5 Hershey's Nuggets
We want to restart walking somehow, but we're working against the darkness right now - at both ends. Not sure what we'll end up doing (maybe it involves a headlamp?)
Sleep was as good as can be expected, given Charlie on the loose most of the week. We were hoping he would sleep quietly in his kennel last night, and he might have, but Anneke wasn't having any of it. She whined; I thought it was him, and let them all out. I woke at 4 this morning after getting to sleep around 10:30ish. Blecch. Trying again tonight, I guess. Maybe we leave Anneke and Roscoe's kennels open.
