Also, back down to more or less my lowest weight since I started this journey, which is where I was pre-West-Nile virus.
I'm really happy with myself right now, and happy with my physical strength and stamina. I'm exercising enough, currently, that the challenge is keeping up with my body's protein and carbohydrate demands in a healthy way, which also means I can be a little more self-indulgent in terms of The Discipline than I have been for a long time.
Man, it's nice to have a cider or a cookie basically whenever I want. I mean, I'm still hungry a lot (I'm hungry right now: I get to start making dinner in half an hour, though) but it's not a rigorously controlled 1700 calories a day. It's more like 2100 with some slough in it, and since I've gotten really good at getting all my nutrients into 1700 calories, I've got 400 calories of eating stuff basically because it tastes good to play with.
Which means tonight I am making little individual chocolate chip microwave blondies, after scott_lynch and I get back from weightlifting.
