    Day 13


    Sleep: Excellent.


    B-none.


    S-1 tiny dried plums.


    L-Enormous salad with added pork loin, avacado, cherry tomatoes, and pumpkin seeds. Small square of 85% chocolate.


    D-Wow. I am very proud of myself. Aug 15th, today is a holiday in France. Was invited to friends. I agonized a bit all day about how it would go as I was planning on staying primal. Turned out okay. No one got too wierded out when I drank water during the cocktail and took none of the carb-ridden snacks. Dinner was a barbecue so I lucked out. Some lamb, two sausages. I did eat a few of the green beens in the green been salad with vinaigrette. Ate the cheese with no bread. And for desert there was an apricot tarte. I had none. Did have a tiny "shot glass" full of thyme sherbert. Almost no sugar. It was meant to accompany the tarte. Proud, proud, proud.


    Mood: A bit anxious about eating at friend's house.


    Physical Acitvity: None.

    Day 15:


    Sleep: had a hard time getting up.


    B and L: Decided to do a 24 hour IF. Made it to dinner no problem.


    D: Another victory. It was my friend's birthday and that meant going to a restaurant. I did some careful research on the web before reserving. At on the terrace, unfortunately next to smokers but... Appetizer: Veal carpaccio. Delicious. Came with some bread. The most wonderful smelling bread. I put it down and left it alone. Can blood sugar go up just from a whiff? I wanted it, it really smelled so good. But hey this is a "challenge" right? Main course: Steak tartare served with a salad and vinaigrette and some lovely sautéed new potatoes. I did not touch one of those potatoes. For desert, some fresh raspberries, strawberries, and cherries. Wine? None!!! Phew.


    Mood: Excellent.


    Physical Activity: 1 hour walk.

    Hehehe, sure, blood sugar can go up frm a whiff. Good for you for resisting all the temptations and I'm sure your mood is a result of that.
