Overall, I feel good.  I have decided to eat more to see if that gets me over this 136-137 weight.

What I did today:

Sliced my right thumb open on my mandoline.  It’s been years since I used it, and I thought it would be safer than chopping the mushrooms with the santoku.  Ha.  It still hurts.

Ran to Target for new food saver bags so I could make up my burgers for the week and found I could buy generic otc zyrtec for under $13.  I ran out of allegra last night — our old scrips expired and A forgot to have his mom renew them.  The zyrtec is really working well on my allergies.  I fell asleep this afternoon on the sofa (and I never nap), so I will have to pay attention to the drowsy factor, but so far so good.

Made a new mushroom and emmental quiche.

Made my burgers for the week: new turkey burgers and new beef burgers (local, grass-fed, and 96% lean).  They join the bison and chorizo in the freezer.  Were I feeling truly ambitious, I would have broken down the turkey cutlets, too.  This 20 minute task makes my life so easy.  Any time I need a protein, I defrost it for a few seconds and I am ready to go.  The burgers I season well before freezing.  I weigh everything and scribble down the weight on the bag, so there’s very little mid-week thinking involved.

Watched Battlestar Galactica with A.

Weight Loss

I dropped .4 pounds from yesterday (I wrote the amount incorrectly yesterday — the real amount was 137.2). I have been bouncing around these weights for weeks.  I have not yet gotten my period.  It’s late, I think, but I am too lazy to go back and check.  My cycle is always messed up, but this is annoying.

Still, my body fat continues to drop.
