It's the weekend and another late start to the day. The night owl in me is hanging on for dear life. The past few nights, I've attempted to sleep without the aid of an OTC (over-the-counter) sleep-remedy. My sleep hasn't been very sound at all. But, I think I still need to do my best to purge myself of this unnecessary crutch.
I'm at weird place mentally. I feel psychologically wounded on a pretty regular basis. I get down on myself quite a lot and often, for legitimate reasons. Still, thus far, I've been able to pretty much stay on course - with regard to my low-carb menu. I hope that lasts. Sticking to it has, in some small measure, helped me to feel a bit better about myself.
There are many fish swimming in my head at the moment. But, I think I'll just leave it here for right now.
Off to the menu ...

+ a cup of instant coffee with an ounce or so of half-and-half and sweetened with one packet of stevia (with FOS in the base)
+ one piece of leftover low-carb "pumpkin bake"

+ 5 ham and tomato "tacos" - (5 thin slices of ham, a dollop of sour cream in the center and 2 small, sliced Roma tomatoes placed on the sour cream beds)
+ half-glass of red wine
+ one cup of "choco-coffee" - (two-tablespoons of pure cocoa powder, one teaspoon of instant coffee, a packet of stevia with FOS and a splash of half-and-half)

More to come ... I hope!
