I expected an even bigger gain today. I've had a lot of stress in my life the last few days and little to no sleep last night. Feel a little punky today, but I have two appointments I cannot miss. I'm going to see if I can reschedule the afternoon one though, so I may spend the day on the couch and I might as well get some interesting stuff posted here retroactively between naps. I hope naps. I hope naps and nothing else.
Also, my husband brought me a coconut oil chocolate last night. I'd already had two, but since I walked 4 miles, I figured I could get away with two; they're small. But I should have just declined the 3rd. The body doesn't seem to mind a little coconut oil and coco, and it doesn't seem to be so much about the calories, though it could be. It's a touchy program, and even the miles might not have offset the calories. That one extra piece was likely about 60-70 calories. I think it just bumped up beyond what the body needs in the way of oils, and then it causes storage. I didn't want it or need it. I wasn't hungry. I only ate it because it was nice of him to think of me. But he would gladly have eaten it had I said, 'No thanks.'
