Decent deficit.
So yea. Triple-H won --- Heat, Hormones, and Headache.

It's not so much that I was in the heat. I wasn't. I went from a/c'd building to a/c'd car to a/c'd house. While I'm not a big fan of being hot, I'm not so thrilled with being in a/c all blessed day, either. I was mostly over the grumples from Tuesday, but not completely. I'd developed a headache.. one of those kinds that you get when you don't get enough sleep and nothing seems to soothe it? Yea, that kind.

I made it through my day without spooning anyone.. heh.. and then once I got home, I whipped up a throw together dinner - 4 cups cauliflower, 3 cups of broccoli, one 12 oz can of roast beef, 1/2 cup of bok choy, some chicken broth and some olive oil, finished off with lemon pepper and lemon juice. It was very yummy, filling, and low-calorie. Bill had combined champagne grapes (impulse buy at Costco) with honey greek yogurt, so I had some of that for dessert/snack, and then the man took pity on me and sent me to bed. At 7:00 pm. I went, gratefully, and fell asleep pretty quickly.

It must have been what I needed because I woke up pretty well this morning. The headache is gone, TOM is abating, and it's going to be hotter'n sin today and tomorrow, reaching 100+. I have a gameplan in mind for hitting the basement for another DVD session after work, and another stir-"fried" dinner of veggies and chicken for dinner.

I may have been knocked down, but I'm not out.

    Awhile back when Frank and I were arguing a lot, sometimes we'd have moments referred to as goat bones and bald babies (like the grapefruit spoon a long story). The grapefruit spoon sounds like another good way to describe a bad day.

    Glad you are more put together today.

    Glad to hear today is better than yesterday! But look, you didn't cave to the Dove squares or popcorn loaded with butter! Way to go. I haven't hooked up A/C in bedroom yet so probably pretty hot tonight.

    In light of the triple H, I'd call that a mighty successful day. The heat we're having right now (summer finally!!) makes it hard to want to work out, even when you're in A/C all day; combined with hormones and headache, I think opting for an early bedtime was way more needed than any additional workout. Glad you're feeling better today!

    Good for you making the most of it all and that dinner you made sounds yummy-might have to try that myself, I've never thought of of using canned beef in a stir fry like that! So easy! And still a decent calorie deficit even w/out any activity? You did dynamite!

    The great things is you're still keeping at your program, despite the stress, headaches, and other grumblies. GOOD for YOU!! Seriously. That is a huge accomplishment all by itself. emoticon emoticon

    I need to get a run in today...I'm thinking it might be around midnight! Stay cool, stay Hydrated, and stay away from the spoons!

    Woohoo! I'm glad you're feeling better. Headaches suck! And on top of everything else??? Ick!

    I'm hoping to walk outside in a little bit. I'm cooped up all winter from the snow and ice and then I spend all summer inside from the heat. Um, no! Not my idea of fun. Sometimes, I feel like I can't breathe inside one more min.!

    Your food sounds yummy! Keep up the great work!

    Here's a sparkly emoticon for all your hard work!
