The day before Thanksgiving. And, I've got a lot to be thankful for. More than I deserve, that's for sure.
I'm working from home again today. But, I did manage to get up earlier than usual. I think this is a change for the better. Though I go kicking and screaming from the land of the Night Owl.
I didn't remember to weigh myself this morning. I was planning on starting a weekly weigh-in today. But, that ship has sailed. Tomorrow morning it shall be.
I often still feel hungry. I've obviously not yet found the correct hunger-balance. I think it's worse when I'm working at home. Don't get me wrong, I love to work at home. But, it probably allows for more time for my mind to wander. And, where else would a recovering fat-man's mind wander? Just like an alcoholic might crave a drink when he's not thirsty.
I think I'll add a new feature to my daily blog. At the end of the day, I'll conclude with a short entry that is confessional in nature. Something brief that gives a glimpse into my mindset and into how I'm feeling about this weight-loss journey and life in general.
Perhaps really throwing myself into this challenge will help me to not abandon it so easily? Time will tell. It almost always does.

+ one cup of "choco-coffee" (two tablespoons of pure cocoa, one teaspoon of instant coffee, hot water, a splash of half-and-half and stevia to taste)
+ 4 natural breakfast sausage (total of around 20 grams of protein and 16 grams of fat - only trace amounts of carbs)
+ two barbequed ribs
+ approx. half-cup of mashed cauliflower
+ a glass of red wine
+ one cup of "choco-coffee" (two tablespoons of pure cocoa, one teaspoon of instant coffee, hot water and stevia to taste) No half-and-half this time.
+ psyllium fiber (as part of my periodic "intestinal fiber-workout")
+ a vanilla whey protein shake (4oz of half-and-half & two scoops of natural vanilla whey protein powder)
+ two herbed chicken thighs w/skin
+ half a cup of mashed cauliflower
+ chicken "drippings" (the liquid/broth that's left after I roasted the chicken - comprised of chicken fat, olive oil, garlic and herbs and spices ... from the homemade marinade)
More to come ... I hope!
