Days 5 & 6 (Friday & Saturday)

Posted on

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.

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.

  1. Wow…. Some detail there! Really sorry I managed to delete your comment from my page! Not quite sure how I did it but I retrieved what you said via my email updates. What detail you manage to include here by the way. It helps doesn’t it? That little bit of public shame/accountability. Keep it up 🙂
