    Day didn't go quite as planned so ended up with
    10:00 1 bratwurst reheated in 2 scrambled eggs
    11:30 coffee with cream
    14:00 ff greek with seeds and 10 blueberries
    16:00 1 hm lc ginger cookie
    17:30 1 cold bratwurst, 1 small chunk cheese, half a small pear
    19:00 1 scoop Oppo ice cream

    I think I must try to sit and eat full meals rather than grabbing on the go

    Skipped lunch.
    Mid afternoon: black coffee and an Aldi protein bar.
    Dinner: liver in onion gravy with runner beans and Brussels followed by SF strawberry jelly and cream.

    I cracked ironing too! Son was brought up to cook and iron as well. Never have succeeded in getting them to move things when cleaning floors though.

    As a point of interest though SLC have in their Friends Pantry section various LC seeded crackers and flatbreads that look very much like the often elusive M&S seeded crackers. Link below.

    My logic is a complete mystery, at least to me!

    Yesterday and the day before I had planned to cook a mashed cauliflower and sauerkraut dish but didn't feel like cooking so I ate something else.
    Today my neighbour gave me 3 turkey eggs so I planned to have a meal with eggs and then suddenly found myself cooking my sauerkraut dish!

    Doesn't matter, I had a very good meal and the eggs will be used later, but I sure mastered the knack of surprising myself with my meals! :hilarious:

    Turkey eggs are pretty, with speckles, and a bit pointier than chicken eggs (store bought chicken eggs in the picture for size comparison), will let you know how they taste once I've tried them. :)
    Had the zuurkoolstamppot with zuurkoolspek, some only cooked, some fried as well (still trying to decide which I like best), and a litlle cubed bacon. :hungry:

    Not two emu eggs I hope?
    That colour is amazing! I've seen ostrich eggs but they were a light brown or beige, nothing like the emu egg!

    Just had breakfast of bacon, eggs, tomato and the last of the bubble & squeak. Feeling very full right now and just want to sit around, but there's stuff to be done, so i can't.

    I am part way through chopping vegetables to make a veggie curry to have with some cauliflower rice. I might not eat it, but at least I'll get it made. Curry is almost always better on day 2 anyway. The amount of cabbage I ate yesterday has had a rather serous effect on my stomach, so I'll need to be careful with the veg. If I can manage OMAD, I will.

    With thanks to @Riva_Roxaban upload_2022-3-30_11-51-55.png

    PS - I can't get it any smaller either, but then, I'm no techie.

    I think I'd rather leave emus where they are. Last one I saw (in Brisbane zoo in 1965) had an evil glint in its eye and a very sharp looking beak. I've never forgotten that evil eye!

    Well, it's been a funny old day for me. Went to see the surgeon who said they had rung me for a telephone chat whereas I had had a text to keep an appointment at the clinic. I turned up and waited an hour to see him. Right old mix-up! He said everything was fine, the pain was the nerves running down the side of my hand. Gave me some gloves and dressings. Had to go to have a blood test for my A1c and the practice nurse was not happy about the state of my hand. So she cleaned it up a bit and I have to go back next week for a check-up. So my friend and I went for a Full English to cheer us up. The works! For my last meal of the day, it will be airfried belly pork slices and a bit of chocolate. Will see what tomorrow brings.

    (March 29th)

    Breakfast (9am): 0% greek yogurt with keto granola topping, black coffee
    Snack (10:30am): None
    Lunch (12pm): Beef pot roast with carrots
    Snack (3pm): None
    Dinner (6pm): Beef pot roast with carrots
    Evening Snack (10pm): Two low carb beers, PIZZA and carb-y snacks :banghead:

    Walked 6.90km to bring my YTD total to 374.92km.

    Feeling so ashamed of my poor eating behaviour yesterday. Once I started binging, I couldn't stop. From the looks of my Libre data, I've just undone all the good progress I'd made over the last two weeks in terms of Average Glucose and Time in Target. Also not feeling amazing this morning :(

    Don't beat yourself up over it. It's a new day and a new start. You'll soon get back on track - and feel better for it.

    We all do it. You’ll likely be back in range in a day or two.

    You might find it easier to resist evening eating if perhaps you have your beers earlier and with a meal.
    Any form of alcohol, low carb or not, really means I can be tempted to eat anything and everything, especially if drunk without food as it seems to go straight to my bloodstream, totally avoiding any self-restraint or motivation.
    As others have said, don't beat yourself up, learn from it and move on
