So ended up doing an impromptu 16 hour IF as I did not eat dinner last night. I always feel really good during 16-18 hour fasts and then I eat and start to feel crappy...how does this happen? But today, I woke up and did my usual friday 45 min 10 # kettle ball/core routine with supersets of two each at a time usually arm/leg or ab/leg supersets:
3 x 15 sumo deadlifts 10#
3 x 15 bicep curls 10#
3 x 15 one armed lifts 10#
3 x 15 one-armed rows 10#
3 x 15 tricep kick backs 10#
3 x 20 3 # weighted leg lifts
2 x 1 min plank
3 x 20 kettleball balancing twisting core (no sure the name here) 10#
3 x 15 bell squats 10#
I always feel good after doing some lifting, much stronger in my head and body and am probably going to make this a 2x week workout replacing one of my bodyweight ones and hopefully graduating to a 15# kettleball. I also finished with 15 min meditation which is something I am re-committing to do at least 5 x a week. I've let it get away from me except during Savasana during my 3x a week yoga and I really need to be able to get back to myself especially to mitigate the anxiety/lack of control that comes up around trying to lose weight. I also threw in 45 min walking.
B: 1 egg, 4 oz peameal bacon minus the cornmeal so I guess just pea-bacon otherwise known as REAL canadian bacon so essentially brined pork loin , 1 c frozen spinach, 1 tsp fish oil, 1.5-2 tbsp coconut oil, green tea
L: will be a BAS with jicama, shaved carrots, 8 oz lump crab meat cooked in coconut oil, 1/4 avocado, 2 slices bacon with warm bacon vinaigrette using drippings
D: its a tasting menu for my brother's wedding in the fall but at a place I used to cook at where they have deer/elk/wild boar on property and cook all game meat so in other words looking to be pretty primal but some butter may slip into the food
I feel pretty good after breakfast this morning so hopefully will last rest of the day!
Turns out two slices of bacon does not a vinaigrette make then my avocado went a little south in the fridge over two days leaving me performing last minute surgery so coconut oil made a comeback in order to score some fat.
As i was making the bacon vinaigrette I had this image of maybe the one other time in my life I had a bacon vinaigrette and how it was spent with half my brain humming with pleasure while the other half was standing watch expecting the low-fat gods to strike me down where I sat (or at the very least demand 60 min of cardio for tribute). It's a little sad how most of my life was spent drowning out the pleasures of food, even through culinary school, with this constant siren wailing in the back of my head saying "Halt! Turn back before that pat of butter makes its way to your thighs!" Now even though I don't eat any starch I look forward to every meal. My culinary creativity that was always stunted when cooking at home for myself by CW rules and rigidity is making a loud, glorious comeback. Now if only I can make it through these two weeks without butter and find that I can tolerate it after all...
