    Day 22

    breakfast - sautéed broccoli, Savoy cabbage and fennel with a bit of bacon, capers and parmesan
    lunch - roasted salmon, carrots, beets and apples, all grated and seasoned with lemon
    snack - one tangerine, one apple
    dinner - shakshuka (in this case: tomatoes, zucchini, onion, garlic) with two eggs, one orange, half a pear

    Movement - 1 hour of walking

    Sleep - not bad

    Mood - not very good; I spent a lot of time resisting but with everyone around me having a cold, it was just a question of time. Previously, though, I would have been the first person to catch it, and now I was the last.

    Work and life balance - OK

    Day 23

    breakfast - nothing, was not very hungry
    lunch - at a Chinese restaurant; various fairly compliant dishes (except for oil) and vegetables, but I felt like eating some rice
    snack - fruit salad
    dinner - none, too full (edit: I got hungry later and ate a few Brussels sprouts sautéed in bacon fat, with horseradish)

    Movement - about 30 minutes of walking (even this was rather exhausting with the cold)

    Sleep - I slept looooooooong but spent the whole day being tired. Going to bed now.

    Mood - good, considering the circumstances (especially the muscle aches are annoying, and swallowing is hard - I only tolerate warm ginger tea)

    Work and life balance - I had to get some work done, but it didn't bother me much.

    I don't feel like I am completely on track. I've been eating way too much fruit because of the cold, and also various sweet pastilles to relieve my sore throat.

    I am sure there will be a huge support thread in January - more people will want to join, and it will be somehow easier to maintain discipline.
