    How lucky you are to ring in a new year with such lovely weather! I swear, Australia is looking better and better these days. A swim at the beach, and fish n chips... *jealous*

    Ohh... black pudding. Where do you find one with Primal ingredients? I've been looking online off and on but haven't found one I like yet. Bummer on the bacon! You know, there are kits where you can cure your own meats. Dad "baconed" some boar chops for kicks. I'm half tempted to have half of my next boar order smoked so it all tastes like bacon, no matter the cut- LOLz

    I'm looking forward to hearing how your Whole 30 challenge progresses.

    Hey DR, the black pudding I buy is advertised as gluten-free, it's ingredients are pork blood and jowls, salt and spices. The brand name is Gotzin, but it's made over here so I don't think you'll have any luck getting it unfortunately.

    Day one of Whole 30:

    Breaky: Black pudding, eggs and fried tomato, coffee with coconut cream and no xylitol
    Lunch: Smoked herring (kippers) and BAS, turns out I had to change my dressing recipe, there's sugar in mustard?!
    Dinner: Omelette made with grass-fed ground beef.
    No food porn, I got out of the habit of photographing my food over Christmas. I will start again today.

    I worked last night so I had a BAS with tandoori spiced chicken and avocado. It was all kinds of awesome! It's 3pm now (I've only been awake for 2 hours) and I've had a couple of brazil nuts and a coconut coffee so far. I'm about to hit the swimming pool for some laps so will stuff my face when I get back.

    Bonus news, I'm in ketosis. That stick was almost black! Yay for burning fat

    Congrats on the good start Em

    I love black pudding but have avoided it thinking it had lots of cereal. Will have to consult my oracle (local butcher)

    If you don't have any luck with your butcher Peril, try Woolworths (Safeway over there I think?). That's who stocks the Gotzen brand over here.

    Here's something...

    I tested my blood sugar levels this morning at work, because there's a BSL monitor there and I was curious. My levels were 2.9mmol/L or 52!! If one of my patients had that reading, I would be force-feeding them carbotest (a glucose drink) and watching them for signs of loss of consciousness. However, I felt fine. What up with that??

    Hmm... I'll see if I can find it online. You can find anything online. It's just a matter of how much you want to pay.

    Food sounds GREAT! And no... there shouldn't be sugar in mustard. Most of the basic ones here are just mustard seed, vinegar, salt, maybe some tumeric. It's when you get all fancy that it gets unPrimal.

    And congrats on the ketosis! Woot!

    Don't know what is worryingly low. Mine is usually around 3.4. Haven't fallen over as a result

    Thanks guys and good luck with your sausage hunt DR

    Day 2 of Whole 30:

    B: Coconut cream coffee and some almonds/brazil nuts
    L: Grass-fed ground beef with kale in coconut oil and indian masala spices
    D: Wild atlantic salmon fillet and salad.

    Exercise:
    500m swim
    2K beach walk

    Am working night shift again tonight so my sleep patterns are all over the place. I stayed awake till 3am this morning reading and woke up at 9.30, I have to get some more sleep this afternoon before I start work at 9pm, but that doesn't feel like it's going to be a problem... I'm knackered!

    Had a spat with the BF last night, if you can call it that. He is seriously the most repressed person I've ever known. I know he was pissed off with me but he wouldn't talk about it so we sat in silence until bed time. I woke up at 5am with him kissing me goodbye and telling me he was going home to sleep because he hadn't slept all night! No bloody wonder, if I repressed every negative feeling I had, I doubt I'd be able to sleep either!!
    I really don't know how we can get past this inability to communicate about anything wrong. I've asked him about it and he seems to think that it's good that we don't argue and that if he's upset about something, he'd rather just keep quiet and let it pass. That is seriously fucked up imo! Don't get me wrong, I don't enjoy arguing, but these loaded silences are so much worse than just having it out and being done with it.

    Anyway, I need to get off my arse and have some food and then get outside for some exercise.

    What can I say?
    Women talk.
    Men don't.
