7 hours in bed, up at 5a, but was awake on/off after 4a. Woke hot/sweaty at midnight but didn’t get up. A little tired but I was feeling pretty good. Go carbs!
However, my session w/ Mike felt tougher than it properly should have. High humidity plus carb-based water retention is my excuse. I really don’t think my body likes grains as much as my brain does!! Oh, and also? I NEED MORE SLEEP. Amy’s class in the eve felt pretty easy, though she struggled a bit.
Because this was my last day of dairy & processed junk until after Afton, I apparently thought I needed to eat everything in sight. Single servings? Those are for children. Half a can of Pringles! An entire package of Goldfish! Sigh.
On the bright side, and I apologize for the TMI here, the super-delicious ice cream seems to have cleaned out my system very well, even to the point where some of the carb-based water retention has gone down, and my upper abs have returned to view. Hooray!

Here comes the weekend! Friday I'm striving to eat healthy foods & avoid junk my body is not used to consuming; Saturday is the Afton trail race, and after that I return to junk through Monday. Hopefully I can keep the quantities more reasonable, but if not, well, I'm going to enjoy the fuck out of it.
My SpartaBuddy Joy mentioned pancakes today. Or actually I did, in the form of Pumpkin Spice Pancakes, but then Joy mentioned normal pancakes. My dad has the best recipe ever for homemade pancakes! And now I've got to find a way to make them this weekend. Also on the really-want-to-eat list: pizza,
I've decided that on Tuesday I shall make my return to calorie restriction using a hybrid form of the Dustin Diet (which worked so well last summer) & Whole9. I will strive to eat according to Whole9's principles (no grains, no dairy, no alcohol, no legumes, no added sugar) 90% of the time, and 10% of my calories can be pure junk. That's actually a fair amount of junk I can eat each week, generally around 13-1400 calories. (Heck, that's an entire loaf of bread!) Roughly 200 calories a day. That gives me plenty of treats to sprinkle throughout the week! I could even go back to eating two slices of 45-cal toast with my morning eggs and still have spare junk calories. Oh, wouldn't I be a happy little camper!
