    It was my lucky day!

    My cleaning help came this morning and brought asparagus, because 'she had too many'.
    I have no idea how such a thing can happen but I won't complain! :D

    She brought 6 very fat asparagus so I decided to have 3 today and 3 tomorrow because I'd already taken a double pack of burgers from the freezer yesterday.
    Had the asparagus with a mashed turkey egg (making them sound even more exclusive :hilarious:) with butter and salt and pepper, and the burger with some pointed cabbage, sautéed with cream cheese and sambal badjak.

    Blowy cold day today - looking after youngest sons dog for a week or so and we got blown around while walking but avoided going into the forest until tommorow when the wind hopefully drops.
    Mid am a few spoons of my hm yoghurts
    lunch two boiled eggs ( dog likes boiled eggs so he had one too and practically inhaled it so he could stare at me while I ate mine! followed by a few berries and hm yoghurt and four squares of 100% yoghurt
    mid pm frozen LC cookie - thankfully only one left wont be buying any more they are too tempting and I really try not to eat snacks between meals.If not available I tend not to do it!!
    Dinner venison steak wrapped in parma ham with cauliflower mash followed by lc brownie and spoon of hm yoghurt.

    You can get female urinal bottles from Amazon UK at reasonable price.

    I got a unisex years bottle ago when we used to fly in a light aircraft without a toilet to go fishing.

    Might be a bit awkward in use out in public! Didn't need it anyway, as it happens.

    (April 7th)

    Breakfast (9am): 0% greek yogurt with keto granola, black coffee
    Snack (10:30am): None
    Lunch (12pm): Creamy garlic chicken thighs, onions, mushrooms
    Snack (3pm): None
    Dinner (6pm): Wendy’s burger with the side of fries swapped for a cup of chili
    Evening Snack (10pm): Two low carb beers

    Walked 3.24km to bring my YTD total to 452.12km.

    I also seem to have injured my right foot, can’t put much pressure on the ball behind my right toe. I think the running shoes that I thought were almost worn out, are in fact worn out. Hopefully ice and rest gets me back on track soon.

    Mid am couple of spoons of my hm yoghurts- as usual to take with my daily supplements some of which need fat, I take vitamins d3 and K2 plus magnesium
    Lunch two boiled eggs followed by hm yoghurts and spoon of hm stewed rhubarb and four squares of 100% chocolate
    Mid pm - last of my frozen lc cookies, not planning to buy anymore of them too tempting to have as an unplanned snack!
    Dinner - salmon in lemon butter with cauliflower cheese and British asparagus with glass of dry white wine followed by sf jelly and spoon of hm yoghurt.
    Going to have a go at making a new hm yoghurt tomorrow using Yakut as a starter will be interesting to see how it turns out but as it needs to ferment for 36 hours will be a few days before report back on it.

    Breakfast was a bacon sandwich with wholemeal bread (Em just had bacon and tomato ketchup).

    Em grazed throughout the day until her Dad came to take her home for dinner but I didn't have anything else. I'm currently making some vegetable soup but shan't have any of it tonight - maybe for breakfast tomorrow. It's a bit late for food now - 10.30 pm.

    Home made baked beans on wholemeal toast. Still another portion of beans left from the batch that I baked a few days ago but it was the end slice of the loaf. I guess I'll have to make another one. Not expecting to eat anything else today. What I had wasn't exactly low carb, but it won't have been more than about 30 or 40 grams carb and the vegetables in the baked beans were reasonably nutritious, so for a single meal, it is probably OK. Not very many calories either, but none of this is getting the weight down.

    Legs even worse than usual, as is my left arm and shoulder. Not sure if that is arthritis or something else. Might try to get to see the GP. Had my 4th anti-covid jab on Thursday and feeling a bit under the weather. Might be connected, might not.

    News on my brother not so good last night, but this is how it's been going - good news, bad news, a bit forward, then dropping back. He's still having to be sedated and still on oxygen, although the tubes are out. I only hope that he is not, in any way, aware of anything, otherwise he would be in some kind of private hell. His wife is worn out and suffering badly with stress now. Whatever we expected, it was not this drawn out limbo of not quite recovery.

    Early yoga so no breakfast and an early lunch.
    L: 2 scrambled eggs with a leftover bratwurst from last night. A keto nut. A chunk of pecorino cheese which was soooo salty. Coffee with cream and a mint tea and a glass of water.
    Loads of gardening
    Mid afternoon another ketonut (last of my mother's day gift)
    Off out tonight for a posh curry. Looked at menu on line, not sure what I'll have. Thinking not drinking alcohol might be swapped for more carbs.
