Today kinda sucked, not necessarily because of the food, but because I think I’m getting sick or an infection or something. My throat is pretty sore and it made eating today a little bit sucky. I didn’t hit my macros, exactly, but I did well all-considering. I even made an extra workout day, kinda. It was hot as hell here today, so I went for a 20 minute walk wearing all black to ensure that I sweat. That was not all that fun. I also did my core exercises which are getting tougher, but I think it’s just about the right amount of challenge.
I burned about 250+ calories, all told, and left 830+ calories on the table, which I’m not too upset about. I wanted to have a day where I didn’t go over my protein amount, and I was under by 30 grams today, so I was happy about that. I’d let the last few days get way crazy with protein and I’m worried it may have added some glucose I don’t want whipping around in my body.
Breakfast was just a couple very small pieces of ham; about two ounces worth. I also had a black tea with about a tablespoon of whole milk and a packet of Splenda. I need to remember to take in my liquid Stevia. Lunch was a lettuce wrapped sandwich consisting of ham, a couple tomato slices, a slice of pepper jack, and two slices of bacon, with some mayo and mustard. Dinner was, unfortunately, Chick Fil-A. I think what I want to do tomorrow is take in some chicken noodle soup and just strain the noodles from it. Drinking straight chicken broth is gross, and drinking the remaining content should be alright; I’ll have to check. I had two snacks, today, too. A piece of mozzarella string cheese, because I’m 11, and two tablespoons of frozen Cool Whip. I got my ice cream fix for only 2 carbs! I still have 7 carbs to spend, and I’d love to get more, but it’s late.
I had some major hunger pangs today, despite my throat feeling like it’s been raked with Freddy Kruger’s claw. I really wanted KFC, so I went there to get some grilled chicken, which this one didn’t serve *any* grilled chicken. I wanted to just order regular chicken but A) it’s not ketogenic, B) it’s been so long since I’ve had carbs, I’m sure I’d feel worse, and C) it wouldn’t be the easiest to eat with my throat all effed up. I settled for Chick Fil-A, though I’m not a fan of their nuggets. I didn’t cook because nothing I had at the house sounded good and I can’t believe we have no chicken. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some in the freezer though…from 2012. We’re bad about freezer meat and stuff. We should really take a gander through all that stuff. Oy.

I read somewhere that eating fatty foods and spicy foods aren’t the best options when your throat is sore, which sucks, because my go-to is something spicy and fatty and buffalo wings and ranch, but it just wasn’t happening today. Hopefully it’s just a phase and I’m not getting sick. I really don’t want that right now! One more day and I’m a third of the way through. Still a long way to go, and I want carb-y food so bad! Gotta get better so I can get back to high fat and hopefully develop a little more appetite control.
