Looks like my first BAB was successful.  I was shocked to see a drop this morning.  I just thought it would stay the same or an increase.  So today, I tried the same thing except I wasn't able to eat within 30 minutes of awakening.  I was already running late for work but I packed two large chicken thighs.  After I arrived at work and issued all the equipment necessary, I headed to the break room to heat up my food.  I was trying to eat discreetly by hiding in an office but everyone found me and was watching me go to town on those chicken thighs.  I finally managed to eat my chicken, wolf it down actually and got back to work.  I was able to work a half day today so I left at 9am.  I went directly to Kmart because I had another coupon for $1.50 off of ten cans and $1.50 off to NYC products.  From there I went to our new Tractor Supply Store.  I was amazed at all the pet items they had and very reasonably priced.  I then headed to every Walgreen's on my way home.  The first three I stopped at did not have the Starbucks refreshers so finally I arrived at the last and final Walgreen's I was going to visit and lo and behold, they were fully stocked!!  I used my two free coupons and the Catalina still spit out another 99 cent coupon, win, win for me!!  The cashier was nice enough to let me use up the last six coupons I had for the refreshers and now I have six more coupons for more refreshers.  I have till Saturday to use them all up because the refreshers are on sale till then.  I wish I would have used all my coupons at Walgreen's but I didn't think it through too well.  I used some at Albertson's and Wal*Mart so those were free but I didn't get any register rewards.

Yesterday evening, I wasn't terribly hungry so I ate a huge salad and one chicken thigh just in case my nightly hunger monster was to awaken.  It was very good and I felt stuffed to the gills and it was just a salad.  The salad consisted of Romaine lettuce, spinach, radishes, cucumbers, mushrooms, avocado, bleu cheese dressing and ground flaxseed sprinkled atop of everything.  My chicken thighs were cooked in lard, butter and coconut oil.  It was dripping delicious!!  I'm defrosting a steak to cook later for my breakfast tomorrow.  I know the guys at work are starting to think I'm weird but I don't care, I know what I'm doing and I'm losing weight because of it.  Now I'm off to sort items and clean the kitchen, well sorta.
