Low carb day, which felt fine - thanks to all that yummy, satiating fat!
*Egg bake: Emily Zaler's cinnamon swirl pumpkin loaf "bread" - but it is NOT bread-like. Now that I've fully reconciled myself to that idea, I am thinking of concocting a better version of it using my egg bake template. I'll keep you posted!
**Pumpkin pancakes: low carb, good protein, great fat, reasonable calories, AND really tasty. No really, it's true!
Sleep: 7.75 hours in bed, 930-515, straight through. STRAIGHT THROUGH. Holy crap did that feel great!
However, when I went to bed last night I was in that awful, exhausted, I'm-so-damn-tired-of-everything state and kind of cried myself to sleep. Like a little kid. Or someone with a life that is truly difficult, unlike mine. Gah.
Body: Shin still hurts. Starting to get anxious about it. Not freaking out just yet, but kinda sorta working my way in that direction. Be forewarned, Dustin!
Have Dustin tomorrow due to the best holiday of them all, as well as his well-deserved vacation weekend, so today's workout couldn't be heavy lifting. Can't run. Can't walk. Bike is at mom's (probably collecting dust). Solution: kettlebell fun in the garage, and some carries down the sidewalk. I hope the neighbors were inspired, and also intimidated.
10-lb weighted pulls: AM 3, 2, 3; PM 2x4.
Brain: Fun visiting friends: Heather & Terri at Juliet's, with baby Hailey bonus. Tons of bacon and coffee, how could it not be perfection? After that, the day was all about bill paying, weight lifting, grocery getting, pancake eating, and bath taking. All good.
Also, the hubster should be home sometime tonight in the wee hours. Happy.
Food prep math: 1 chicken + 2 cans RoTel + 24 hours in the slow cooker = 7 meals that could not be any easier!
