Starting to think the no-Benadryl plan was not so great. Lee has a cold with a cough, and when he's not feeling well, thrashes around at night a good bit. I would really like some good sleep - I got sleep last night, but it was choppy, since every thrash tossed the bed around and nearly woke me up. If I'm still struggling tonight, I may succumb.
158.8 again today (sigh). Here's yesterday:
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- lemon gelatin water
- scrambled eggs
- sausage patties
- 3 pieces of cheese
- carrots and cherry tomatoes with blue cheese dressing as a dip
- a stuffed pepper - no rice, just beef and tomatoes
- a handful of salted dark chocolate almonds
- about a cup of cashews (I was hungry at bedtime)
All in all, a good eating day, really. If I'd stopped after the first half-cup of cashews, it would have been darn near perfect. Even so, everything was real food. No breakfast today - not formally, anyway, because Lee was so done in this morning that I told him not to worry about it. I had an apple and cheese planned for "lunch", and added a bag of walnuts to flesh it out a bit - I've had some of the cheese and walnuts already.
We did not walk much last night - made it to the end of the block and came back. The wind was blowing something fierce, and Lee already didn't feel well, so we went home. So no goal-making yesterday, and doubtful today. I took a long bath after dinner, and pretty much went to bed (if not to sleep - we watched a movie) after that.
Back at it today. If nothing else, I'll aim to do my shoulder exercises tonight, since I didn't get them done either.
