I worked late Friday and made a nice steak when I got home. I logged my food, caught up on Thursday’s post and went to bed. Food report: fruit smoothie with avocado, coconut milk and protein powder. Tea; eggs and bacon, black coffee; veal, salad, beets; a pear; steak, Chinese vegetables, coconut milk, red chard, a tangerine and a piece of chocolate.
Today I was glad to see the scale dropped again. 160.5. I studied French grammar today and drank two cups of coffee, which made my chest feel like I had a train racing through it. Interesting. I think I’ll stick with the Oolong tea. I added some cream to the espresso. But I didn’t like it. I had a feeling of nostalgia and thought I’d enjoy this like I used to. But I didn’t. Oh well.
Food log for today: Eggs and bacon on grilled zucchini, spinach; coffee with cream; smoothie with avocado and coconut milk, protein powder; ham and red pepper; “Balance” bar from last summer that I dug out of a drawer while studying (blech); grilled burger with tomato, 1/4 avocado; another coffee and more studying. A couple pieces of chocolate. **Today’s total is higher than the rest of the week, and higher in carbs too. And lower than in exercise too.
Percentage of Calories
I find this a little boring to write out. But paying attention to what I eat and how much has brought me closer and closer to my goal. I’m almost there, and I feel secure in my ability to get there and stay there. I like how I feel eating like this. Though it’s a little boring to have just sweet potatoes, pumpkinor beets as a starch. On the other hand, I feel good eating like this. I’m leaning out.
**My perception is totally inaccurate. Both calories and carbs are in line with the week’s average. Must be guilt over the chocolate.
