breakfast - a treat: goose liver cooked with onion in goose fat, one endive
lunch - just broccoli, three eggs and smoked cheese
dinner - I had lunch 5 hours ago but I still feel as if I had eaten a while ago so I will probably not eat anything else today (or maybe a cup of broth). This is one of the days I think I have eaten really little. But then, why should I stuff my face just because I can?
Movement: very good, more than two hours of walking
Sleep: quite good, can't complain
Work and life balance: very decent
OK, so I didn't have dinner but I ate two chocolate truffles and then a blueberry yoghurt instead. :eek: Back to discipline tomorrow.
Today was a goose day.
breakfast - I removed the lumps of fat from the cavity and rendered it. I had the goose rinds with broccoli and cauliflower for breakfast
lunch - roast goose with red cabbage (with apples, cloves and red wine). Very filling and delicious, especially the crispy skin
dinner - nothing
Movement - about 3 hours of aimless walking and chatting with friends
Sleep - pretty good
Mood - excellent
Work and life balance - no work at all
breakfast - nothing
early lunch - leftover red cabbage and the rest of the meat picked off the goose, one kiwi
dinner - I will probably have a little something, e.g. an endive
I have a huge jar (about two pounds) of goose fat now. :)
Movement - nothing... A lot of work, and the weather is not very inviting
Sleep - I read until 1 a.m. but woke up at 7 a.m. Not quite sufficient
Mood - somewhat gloomy. Maybe because of the weather change, which also seems to affect my asthma.
Work and life balance - after a leisurly Friday and Saturday, I had to work all the day. But it's not too bad - it is 5 p.m. and I am done for today. I will spend the rest of my pyjama day reading.
I am so offtrack! This weekend was my dad's 70th bday and I just ate too much. Not really bad stuff. BBQ, broccoli salad, gluten free brownies w/ icing, raw veggies and salsa. Not horrible horrible but not terrific either. I have got to get back on track! My family was going on about how good I looked and I was preaching my lifestyle but not living it :) I need to walk the walk.
You are not the only one! Two of the 6 pounds I had shed are back because of my eating over the weekend (chocolate, yoghurt, some potatoes, fruity red cabbage). Let's do something about it. :) I am determined to be fully compliant this week.
Getting back on track was successful.
brunch - goose stomach and heart and two carrots, all taken from bone broth that I had made overnight
early dinner - bacon and three eggs with one endive and a bit of red cabbage fried in bacon fat (not very tasty)
Movement: about 1,5 hours of walking
Sleep: decent but I usually fall asleep and get up late these days; I'd like to readjust back to my previous pattern
Work and life balance: decent; I actually enjoyed working, unlike yesterday
I am too! Starting today. Just trying to get back into low carb.
Breakfast: 2 cups of coffee with coconut oil
supper: 10 oz steak and 1/3 head of roasted cauliflower
Movement and play at work with the little people. Never enough but I am getting there.
I know it is too much meat but I think it is going to take a bit to get back into the groove. Sigh.....
late breakfast - cauliflower with bacon with a bit of parmesan cheese
lunch - a piece of pork shoulder marinated in garlic, cooked in lard, with one egg
dinner - 1/2 sausage with mustard, two tomatoes
Movement: one hour of walking
Sleep: suboptimal; I woke up soon after midnight and could not fall asleep for a while
Work and life balance: quite good but I will need to work until 9 p.m. because I decided that I deserved a leisurely afternoon (reading!)
What's going on with me? I had an urge to eat some chocolate (had I opened it, I would have eaten it all, of course). Luckily, I had a bit of cheese instead. Not exactly ideal either...
