    That actually sounds like a lot of fun. I wonder if I would have the nerve to do it now. I just ordered a new bathing suit (hope it fits), so there's one excuse out the window...

    New tastes? That's going to be hard with you; you eat a good variety. I'm going to make curried chicken breasts for supper tonight. Does that qualify?

    @Judg :P Already a huge fan of curry spice (as I use it quite often on chicken, ribs and beef...) but curry will always qualify as awesome!

    Breakfast- Chunk of summer sausage, 1 egg

    Lunch- Chicken wings and Zuchinni Speghetti

    Supper (Kind of?)- zuchinni speghetti (couple bites), pork rinds.

    Supplements- 2+2 tbsp of MCT, 6000ui Vit D, 3000mg Salmon Oil.

    Excercise- 1.5KM barefoot walk, 500m barefoot run, 280m Slosh pipe walk


    For the 2+2 MCT oil I figured I'd try an experiment- MCT as post workout fuel/sleep fuel... Can't tell if it worked though because for the 2nd night in a row my room mates left the lights on in the hallway/kitchen ( I live in a bungalow) and I had a hard time sleepin from all of the light seeping in... not cool

    I thought MCT was good for a pick-me-up.

    High cortisol also makes you extra light sensitive. I remember when I first did super low carb I thought it was healthy I was waking to the sun, which it is at a certain point. But I was waking at the first crack of sunlight. It was because of high cortisol. And, as you know, I eventually got less and less sleep.

    I get that imbalanced cortisol and melatonin can make you more light sensitive but it's moreso that my bedroom door leaks in tones of light if the hallway light is on to the point where I could probably navigate my room without any issues with the hallway light on and the door closed. I can sleep through it for the most part but there's a certain point where I've been sleeping in the light long enough that my body thinks it's time to wake up. I have no problems taking naps in the day time but you can only sleep in the light for so long...

    So catchup time! I have 2 days of food journalling to get down

    Thursday
    B: Coconut milkshake with coconut milk, raspberries, banana, cocoa

    L: IF

    D: I'm between calling it Sweet PoTaco and Sweet Porito! It was a sweet potato topped with guacamole and onion, red pepper, beef slices, yellow pepper, and mushroom all pancooked in duck fat, butter and taco seasoning. Yum! (Pork on the side)


    Supplements: 2TBSP MCT, 3000mg salmon oil, 6000ui of Vit D

    Exercise: 1km quarter filled slosh pipe walk. 1/2 on back, 1/2 on chest

    Friday
    B: 4 slices of bacon, 1 hard boiled egg, left over zuchinni speghetti.

    L: Left over Sweet Potaco, 1 slice of pork

    Dinner: 3 chicken wings, 2 slices of red pepper topped with the leftover taco meat/veggie mixture from Thursday night

    Supplements: Regulars minus Vit D (I'm out! of vit d!)

    Exercise: Sawing through the end of my slosh pipe so I can replace the cap with one that twists off. 280m slosh pipe walk at about half full.

    @Sabine- Sweet potaco it is! Made my belly happy!

    @Judg- Slosh pipe is a 12' PVC pipe 4" in diameter half filled with water. The purpose is to keep the water balanced while moving (walking, jogging, front squat, back squat, "rowing"... etc). One wrong move and all of the water sloshes to one side of the pipe causing you to go off balance. You are supposed to use your core strength to get it back to centre if/when it happens.
