    Primal Journey to health - Glass0wl

    Well following my blood results yesterday and the need to watch what I eat I thought I would start this journal.

    So first off my starting stats

    Age: 59
    Female
    Height: 5 foot 1 inch
    Weight: 121 lbs

    Total cholesterol : 6.9
    HDL: 2.21
    LDL: 4.4
    Triglycerides : 0.73
    Cholesterol / HDL ratio : 3.1

    Calculated risk 9.95%

    I have over the last 8 months lost 30 lbs, changed from a total sedentary office life to a retired active / exercise life. Should have started this journal earlier as I think it would have been more interesting.

    Meals today:

    B: avocado, crab, salad
    D: redbush with almond milk.

    Supper: pâté and salad with a banana/strawberry treat.

    As for lunch hmm not sure it's a meal out, I am spending the day at our local country fair, walking round all the exhibits, craft tents, watching the show jumping, best sheep, best cow, ferret racing. Of course I will spend time in the food tent and will get some food for lunch and snacks.

    No normal walk today, I will be walking into town and back with my backpack and then around and around the showground; be interesting to see how far I do walk.

    Not sure where they get their figures from, will have to check that out but over 20% and doctors get worried apparently. It has an age element, genetic predisposition as well so me only getting 9% I can't be all that bad

    Ok so I didn't derail myself yesterday, thought I may the mood I was in.

    Gorgeous hot day, maybe too hot for walking, started walking at 10am and got home at 4 pm, didn't stop during the day.

    Food was:

    Boar sausage in a bun - threw bun away
    Organic beef burger in bun - you guessed threw bun away
    Strawberries and clotted cream - well I am at the heart of clotted cream tea country
    Then I derailed a tad

    One white chocolate magnum
    Two half pints of pear cider


    Today is a new day and I intend to behave

    Planned food

    Breakfast: dry cured organic back bacon ( bought it yesterday from one of the stands at the fair ) mushrooms and tomatoes cooked in the bacon juices
    Lunch: chicken stuffed with cheese and herbs, roast aubergine and some spinach
    Treat: banana and strawberry frozen pot
    Supper: avocado and crab salad
    Treat: banana and kiwi and lime frozen pot with a tab spoon of home made yogurt

    To drink

    Water and fruit teas

    Got to get the redecoration of the dining room finished today and start the quilt for the shop

    Breakfast: bacon tomatoes and mushrooms
    Lunch : chicken and bacon salad followed by ice cream
    Supper ham an spinach with fresh mayonnaise

    Did have a couple of small glasses of cider as well
