  • And, damn, IF is working!

    I have a visible 6pack here at the end of a week, and I haven't done any more exercise (in fact, I've done as much as usual, which is VERY little).

    now, there's just a little extra on my lower back/upper hip that can go (not a muffin top, mind you, but it's the last spot to go).

    getting back to 18%. in a week. LOL woot!

    • Zoebird, autumn sounds brilliant. I can do the airport pick up, and I might even have a spare car for you to get around in !!!
      We had some french woofers last xmas - interesting !!!!!!!!
      I love the whole work for free food and board, but we are not organic, anyway they needed somewhere to stay and we provided the place and the food. He was an amazing cook, and would often cook for us, but three weeks can be a long time for a couple who are completely dependent on you - as in vehicle, etc....
      they headed up to the sounds after us, and we never heard from them again. Sad really cos they were a nice couple and we all got on well.

      The farm life is fantastic. We were on 6000 acres, but now on 12!!!! so not a whole lot to do !!!!
      However I am sure that we could find some wee tasks for a great big 4 year old.

          • Caveman custard sounds truely awful - glad you didn't succumb !!!!!!
            lol no it is actually ok. the way you remember it is 1-2-3 custard according to the blog i found. 1 can coconut milk + 2 bananas + 3 eggs + cinnamon. blend it all up and i put it in rammekins and bake it like custard. ya know in a baking tray with water in and then you chill it down overnight when it is set. i am going to use it for carb nite with maybe maori potatoes and/or kumara. i'm kinda working on thinking of what other clean carbs i actual like. i may give the 10 day potato diet a try in the autumn too when i dig up all my riwai.

                  he's prob drinking whisky lol

                  made my sausie mix. i minced the meat from around the deer ribs. it has a fair bit of fat on too which is good. i used 20 something g of pink himilayan salt per lb ( 500gs ) i had 1.5kgs. so i minced in 3 huge cloves of garlic, 2 small onions, and quite a few horopito leaves. plus 1/2 c of the red nectar. mixed it all up and am leaving it to sit overnight. plan A is to try to stuff it into the sausage casings tomorrow. which from memory is quite a feat, even with a sausage nozzle. then i may try to hang some of them to make salami.

                  • Can I come on down to stay - and eat all your amazing food ????? Maybe when we get back from Hong Kong ???????
                    and yea I think Robbie stuffed it up big time - this time !!!! Actually I met him way back in the day. Soon after the DH picked me up hitch-hiking. and I met his brother - really nice, however when you leave the country and coach another team .........hmmmmmm not always the best outcome.
                    Don't get me wrong - I love the Aussies, but a Kiwi coaching an Aussie team?????? I just don't think that its gonna work
                    Nevermind - sometimes you gotta fall down before you get up again.... and I really don't know what that means !!!!!! but it sort of sounds good !!!
                    Tailed 60 lambs, gathered 2 x 3mtr loads of firewood - all set for next winter..... and I feel a wee bit like a squirrel ! you thought that I was gonna say caveman - but I didn't - hah
                    I look forward to that salami - Seaweed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    • i am not sure how the salami will go. some places get all hysterical about preserving chemicals i cant pronounce in the recipes but i reckon salami predates any of that technology. i found a recipe here Latest US news, world news, sport and comment from the Guardian | guardiannews.com | The Guardian which looked fairly simple. not sure if i had enough fat but it was fatty in relation to venison. i will hang the sausages if i can sort out some kind of netting bag to put them in to keep the flies out.

                        • A whole deer?! I'm up for a road trip and I won't even need a room, just a spot to park my kombi :-D

                          • yes a whole deer lol i do have a sleep out and there is plenty of room for the combi. it is a fallow deer tho and they arent as big as a red deer but oh so much more tasty.

                            • Wow, I don't know what to <3 first - the deer or the kombi .

                              If any of you are taking the central road through the NI, though, you're most welcome to stop in our village for a bit .

                              I had another carb night on Saturday - frankly I'm not sure either very low carb or this intermittent carbing is the right way to go. I'm struggling a bit with low energy and feeling sad. Mind you, it could be that it's still cold and it's raining yet again. I think I need a holiday!

                              • i have to say i struggle with alot of the low carb, carbing up, eating unnatural amounts of fat etc. to me part of the reason paleo appealed is it makes sense to how we would have eaten for thousands and thousands of years. so once i get to having to eat mainly things like butter and coconut oil and avocados, it starts to not make sense. i also have a bunch of kids i cant feed that as they wont eat it and the last thing they need is a crazy mum eating totally separate meals. if you do ever have to cut up a game animal, a fish or collect your own shellfish, you will see that fat is not really a predominant element. i cant talk for stuff like ducks in the autumn tho. but still my $s is on low carb, more protein, lots of connective tissues and all the fat you can scrounge ( which is not tonnes, "scrounge" being the operative word here ), no sugar ( other than the odd honey binge or wild berry which would be the equivalent of xmas lol ). i definitely feel better eating more veges, flesh, eggs and shellfish. so yeah. we shall see. i also think even paleo peoples were of varying states of health depending on their access to food and an adequate variety of food. i really cant see them all being Ayla off clan of the cave bear. and i have long suspected WAP's work to be a bit romanticised.
