The day after Thanksgiving ...
Some good and bad things to report. I didn't sleep soundly. But, I think this is partly because I didn't take a sleeping pill last night. I've gotten into the bad habit of habitually using an over-the-counter sleep aid. One of my long-term health goals will be to rid myself of that crutch.
On the up-side, I woke-up pretty early and started working on my chores right-away ... instead of doing other things first. Also, I tinkered with my morning beverage of choice. See my menu for details.
Apart from that, I feel like I'm heading in a relatively solid direction. The foundation, under my low-carb feet, feels more stable than ever (if memory serves me). This can only be a good thing - provided that I take nothing for granted.
Friday - November 29, 2008
+ one cup of "coco-choco-coffee" - (two tablespoons of pure cocoa, one teaspoon of instant coffee, hot water, one tablespoon of coconut oil and stevia to taste)
+ a vanilla whey protein shake - (two scoops of natural vanilla whey protein and 4 oz of half-and-half)
+ 4 turkey-broccoli "tacos" - (4 thin slices of turkey, a dollop of sour cream in the center and sauteed broccoli and onions on top of the sour cream)
+ some market-bought prime-rib - my guesstimate: 4-6 oz worth
+ approx. 4-6 oz of prime-rib
+ half-cup mashed cauliflower
+ 3 slices of prosciutto
+ 3 oz of blue cheese
+ one glass of red wine
This is perhaps my new favorite snack. The flavors are truly something to behold - at least, according to my palate.
The odd thing is, in the past when I was a "carboholic", I would never have even considered this as a (voluntary) snack. Never! Now, I often prefer savory food selections over sweets. Go figure.
More to come ... I hope!
