    Yesterday...
    B Peanut butter mug cake (again!)
    L Spinach bread, fresh from the oven
    D Roast chicken
    S Another beer! And here's something brilliant - it didn't cause a spike!! Plus a goodly amount of merlot


    I can't go back to my old beery ways because it would wreck my ketosis but it looks like I can have a pint or two occasionally. Happy days!

    B. 2 breakfast 'muffins' tiny bit ratatouille
    L. None
    D. King prawn and chorizo cauli rice yummm
    S. Nuts and cheese.
    Lost another pound but although this is good I feel like this would be the pace at the end of my journey, not the beginning with 80+ to go. I must be doing something wrong but I can't figure what.

    At least it is weight off. Water retention can interfere with us women. See what next week brings! Well done with loss.
    We will get there. We have to believe in ourselves more. ;-)

    I decided to nibble instead on nuts and 70% chocolate rather than a dinner. Maybe a bad thing for me as I'd rather nibble all day, everyday. Hum.
    I just didn't fancy a meal.

    B - Bacon and spinach bread
    L - Roast beef salad with cheese
    D - Shakshuka with some spinach bread cut thin and fried til crisp.

    S - chicken drumstick, merlot.

    Shakshuka, if you don't know, is a Mediterranean / Middle Eastern dish. Basically it's a thick spicy tomato stew (some onion, paprika, chorizo and chilli in there).. When it's ready you poach some eggs in it and then serve with chunks of bread, or spinach bread in my case,

    B: chia et al SOP
    L: celery, olives, avocado, feta and garlic, OO, lots
    D: Xth for moi and 22nd for son, H-bone steaks cabbage, avocado salad, Rioja and water (separate), homemade coffee truffle and this.... had about 1/6th in a slice.... really really rocks.
    http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/flourless_lemon_almond_cake/
    Mrs Hj suggested an almond based cake as I was not too keen on reg flour... though she is not keen on anything close to marzipan... well this has cardamon and lemon, which come through really well, lovely balance....
    no flour and no butter, though the latter is not necessarily a good thing. 100g sugar, 170 g almond flour, I used ground and added some milk to loosen, 4 eggs, cardamon and lemon zest.
    pre: 4.7
    2 hrs post: 5.7

    H-bone is currently knocking 6 bells out of sirloin, rib eye and fillet steaks in this house... always used it for strog.... no more, full on steak.

    Breakfast:
    One egg
    Two sausage
    Hash browns (I know I know)
    One hot cake with syrup (baby steps)
    And 12 or 13 cups of black coffee

    Mid-morning break:
    Vienna sausages and a 20oz DP ( I know )

    Lunch:
    Chilled cheese sandwich and coffee

    4 o'clock meal: ham without bread and some more coffee

    Supper: well I'm not dead yet so I guess I better go to the pantry and see what's in there to cook.
    Probably chicken of some kind

    I need an intervention

    But I don't want one

    I feel like **** and I know it's the carbs
    Coffee is not enough to keep me awake when my sugar is low
    I hate this!

    Ok tomorrow I'll do better.
    Right?

    Update: tacos for dinner but I only hate half the tortilla that wrapped the meat and cheese and salsa then I ditched it and just ate the insides of the other half. ( again, baby steps)
    Really trying hard to cut the carbs
