It’s (was) 2:30 in the afternoon and I’m just getting around to breakfast and listening to Coil while preparing it (SLEEEEEP deprived). I’m cool with that.
Cleaning Eating Update:
I’ve been doing the cleaning eating thing, more or less, for three weeks now. I haven’t changed my caloric intake, only the foods and chemicals that I do or do not take in. For 6 out of 7 days a week, I eat 3 - 4 meals a day consisting of meat/eggs (usually chicken for me), legumes, and a vegetable. One day out of the week, Saturday, aside from keeping my breakfast consistent (today, it’s eggs, turkey bacon, lentils, and spinach), I pretty much will eat whatever I want for the other meals. And lots of water. Coffee, too as a personal preference. I’ve only had soda once this week.
What did I mainly eat before? You don’t want to know..
Before I started doing this, I’ve maintained an average of 140#, +/- a couple pounds. This is far better than the 184# that I used to weigh in at back in 2010. At 140#, I looked just fine with clothes on, but my stomach still needed some attention.
So results: I now weigh in at 135.8#. I’m now 2.5” down around my stomach. I’d measure my hips, but I still can’t figure out where I’m supposed to measure (internet diagrams are inconsistence), and I’m afraid that I just have a booty anyway.
Next month, I will continue this, but add in some exercise for muscle. Yep, I haven’t exercised yet.
I should also note, that my monthly bill consists of $100 - $120 for groceries. I also drink wine most night, and whiskey on Thursdays because it’s Thursday. This week, I also had some excellent home-brew one night (normally, I wouldn’t drink beer until Saturday).
