Today was a PP Day
Daily Weight Loss: -0.9 lb/-0.4 kg
Total Weight Loss: 31.9 lb/ 14.51 kg
Well, shuhada… I have no idea how I gained a pound, but it’s all good. I did all the tricks my Dukaner friends have taught me… 1. step on scale 2. step off 3. turn scale towards the north 4. step back on 5. shake scale 6. step back on and exhale every ounce of air in your lungs… none of it worked… 😀
The funniest thing about the gain is that it could not have been from the day. Just FYI, I write on Tuesday about Monday’s diet and include my Tuesday morning (after I pee) weigh in. So yesterday, and really today, I haven’t felt that great. I’ve had a headache just enough to feel it there and a low-grade fever. So I really haven’t been hungry. Here’s what I had:
Breakfast: 1 boiled egg
Morning snack: another boiled egg
Lunch: 1 plate of shaved beef with cilantro on top and a teeny bit of soy sauce
Dinner: 4 chicken wings and a skinny steak (that cuban kind… had it at a Mexican restaurant here in China).
That was it. Additionally, I am totally in ketosis. In fact, I suspect it may be part of the reason I’m having these annoying headaches. But yesterday I could taste the metal in my mouth and asked the lab tech for a dip stick to check my urine (she ended up giving me TWO BOTTLES!!!… score!) and sure enough I was spilling large ketones… which, although I want my body to burn fat for energy, I don’t want it burning at that rate!
After dinner we took a long walk back, about 45 minutes in the nice cool fall air. It was lovely. So I got my morning 20 mins. to work walk in and a 45 min. after dinner walk. I do have to say that I did not get in Bran or 1.5 L of water. I probably got about 750 mL… might be part of the problem…
Well, now I’m off to make tonight’s dinner… not real hungry, but I think my body might slow down it’s weight loss if it thinks I’m starving it… gotta feed it some energy 🙂
