  • Another sleep in day. Weekends are good for that since the boys are no longer playing soccer. Took my car for a proper wash (inside and outside clean), went looking for a few things in some shops that of course, weren't there.

    Eats:
    coffee with heavy cream (not as good as I remember...black is just fine for me now)
    mid afternoon: 3 soft boiled eggs, a fuji apple with almond butter
    D: a good one handed effort. Pork tenderloin rubbed with a mix of assorted spices, seared in bacon fat and roasted, baked sweet potato, and garlic broccoli steamed in a pan with cubes of my frozen beef bone broth. Very tasty.
    Wine.

    I have a huge mess of chili thrown in the slowcooker for tomorrow. Should feed us for a couple of days.

    • Ha, I thought using over 2kg of ground beef would make chili for a couple of meals...no so. The of us plus one other teenaged boy each had a large bowl...and all that is left was a smaller serving that hubby quickly grabbed for his lunch. Silly me.

      I took off my splint at work for a bit because I needed to get a document done, which was going painfully slow. I was actually rather surprised that my wrist started hurting, so I was a good girl and put it back on. Guess I'd better follow doctor's orders until the xray (well, mostly, anyway). I did get the document done however.

      Hubby asked me a couple of days ago if I was eating "enough" carbs, as he says my breath is not so nice. I normally do fall well under 100g of carbs, but not that often under 50, which I always thought was necessary for ketosis. Ketostix haven't changed colour, so I dunno. Yet today I myself noticed a rather unpleasant case of "ass mouth", enough so that I had to grab a stick of sugarfree gum. And if I was in ketosis, wouldn't I be seeing some changes for the good??

      We're bottling homemade wine tonight. Hubby has to do most of the work due to my hand, just killing time till there's a step that I can do. I suppose I'll be sampling a bit .

      Eats:
      black coffee
      10am: greek yogurt with frozen raspberries, maybe 4 oz of pork tenderloin. Was disappointed I forgot to bring dill pickles.
      lots of green tea
      D: large bowl of chili topped with cheddar, 1/2 a small avocado, scallions, cilantro, sour cream. 3 squares of dark chocolate. I'm still feeling very full, 2 1/2 hours later.

          Yes, quality control is rather necessary

            I could send you my address--to help with the sampling.. I would only be doing this as an act of solidarity for those of us that are "one handed". : )

            • Being in ketosis mean your burning ketones for energy, they can be created from the fat you eat or the fat on your backside. It could be from your backside and still be being replaced by the food you eat as well. Ketosis doesn't necessarily = weight loss.

                True. I recall reading many other people's anecdotes (mostly women) who stayed in ketosis for a long time and didn't lose. I've not been aiming for ketosis in particular, though my produce intake has been low lately, partly due to the knife wielding hand limitations. Regardless, the ass mouth is less today.

                Hubby and I found our rings today. Non matching tungsten carbide bands. Nice, simple, heavy weight, and 40% off! In stock too, so no waiting 6 weeks for an order like some of the shops. Mine is a man's band, but I like it. It really was time for new bands, the original was one of those narrow yellow gold plain bands (suited us at the time, as they were cheap!). Our 20th anniversary is on Friday.

                Eats:
                black coffee
                L: tin of tuna with half an avocado, squeeze of lime, scallions & chopped dill pickle - very tasty. (got the idea from an old post that popped up yesterday)
                D: chicken breast slow cooked in broth with shallot, garlic, lemon thyme & lemon slices, some sauteed spinach, sweet potato with butter. Made a cream sauce from the broth which didn't thicken as I'd hoped. Tasted okay, but not worth saving. Overall a yummy and filling meal.

                  The rings sound wonderful...photo??

                  a spam? You mean something good came from one of them?

                  • The rings do sound great - I second W'n'C's photo request.

                    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! That's a pretty awesome accomplishment.

                    • Thanks gals . 20 years is a long time, despite the many ups and downs, I don't see ever not being in this relationship. We are well suited, though sometimes we forget to remind ourselves that we've got a really good thing going. Granted I'd not recommend anyone today getting married at 23 (he was 2 weeks shy of 25)...but it felt right.

                      I'll try to get a photo uploaded in the next few days...but you'll have to excuse my lack of manicure . Tried to upload a link to something similar, but it didn't want to work.

                      • Hopefully in another 36 hours my xrays will be clear and I can ditch the splint. It still seems to be improving.

                        Nothing eventful today, aside from driving home in light freezing rain...not so nice, but could have been a lot worse. Older kid just took my car to the gym, hopefully he'll heed my warnings to be extra cautious.

                        Eats:
                        black coffee
                        L: nearly a repeat of yesterday: tinned salmon, half an avocado, scallions, diced dill pickles plus 3 diced jumbo green olives. Yummy. Such a weird combination, but it really works. The salmon was almost as good as the tuna, and the olives were a good addition.
                        D: 5 poached eggs plus 5 strips of bacon.
                        3 almonds (ha, that's all that were left!), 1 square of 70% sea salt dark chocolate

                        My belly has been making very loud digesting (read gurgling) noises after I eat for a couple of weeks now. As in very loud and all over. No particular reason I can think of, but a big increase over previously. Weird. And today I saw that the belly also looks kind of bloated (doesn't really feel like it however), it's still a good week until TOM, so that's likely not the culprit. I dunno.

                        • I'm glad your arm is improving!

                          5 eggs?!?! wow

                          The Sea Salt Chocolate is great! Was it the Lindt?

                            Not really...if I have eggs for breakfast, it's usually 4. And poached they seem way smaller

                            Way better than Lindt (I think their sea salt choc is only 47%)...a brand called Galerie au Chocolate, Belgian fair trade 72% fleur de sel. Found it in a gourmet type food market. Quite excellent.

                            • happy anniversary !!! 20 years... wow. I keep telling the fireman he's got 20 years to go... and he always says what about the x we've already done... dont I get time offf for good behaviour

                              5 eggs AND bacon for dinner.... sheesh, that's a lot. i very rarely have a poached egg nowadays... its just not right without toast for me I'm afraid!

                              Comment


                              • 5 poached eggs? Really, that's just a whole 350 calories... As I've recently said, I like food. Tiny meals don't do it for me. Granted, I recall I'm a few inches taller than you, Suse. Whatever. We all have our comfort zone

                                There were workers around my cubicle at work today, serious restructuring of the office space, and the construction is currently encroaching on our area. Half the day some dude was up on a ladder with waist up into the drop ceiling in the entrance to my cubicle, so I was trapped (thank God their jeans were pulled up so no crack alert)...then later, he was cutting or drilling something, tiny bits of stuff were raining down on my desk, he pops out in a mask and respirator saying "oh, is that getting on you?"...then out of the blue, a pair of vice grips come sailing down from the ceiling, landing right behind my monitor (as I'm trying to meet a deadline and send something off)...holy crap!! "oh, gee, I'm sorry, that never happened before..." says the dude...lets just say I wasn't particularly pleasant in my response.

                                Hubby and I went out for some gifts for the boys tonight. Picked up a few things. He says my breath still smells foul. Hmmm.

                                Eats:
                                black coffee
                                green teas
                                L: tuna/avocado/dill pickle mix, a larabar B (found in my travel bag, and because I wanted it )
                                D: grass fed ground beef, stir fried mix in ghee of sweet peppers, mushrooms, onions, broccoli slaw with red pepper flakes.
                                Wine
                                chunk of chorizo
