@JJFiddle: This country has no trick or treat, Halloween is a young thing too and some people are against it. We can see decorations in supermarkets (of course, business is business) and carved pumpkins in front of houses and on fences, very few and some people does it.
I make everything for me (But I don’t see anything weird in giving kids hands either, on Halloween… snack sized ones with something to bring with themselves too. would they be mad if I painted rocks? I could make them look like candy I guess and they wouldn’t disappear in a bite! but we don’t have trick or treating and anyway, I probably would make some keto candy, I like making food and have experiences with low-carb treats. I would even prepare some for the kids without a sweet tooth - and very much without peanut allergy as my only good fat bomb recipe has that galore.)
The hand won’t be tiny anyway, I am glad if I can pull it off in any size… I need to be careful with the bacon, I only have a normal package and I bet both Alvaro and I will eat some before… But they only need to cover a smallish hand, the other hand will be plain. Not every buried one gets wraps!
Oh it’s sooooooo nice paperwork and all the travelling is done. I feel tired, body and mind. Not soul, I bounced back as usual and have great plans and want to dig myself out of the deep pit I somehow fell. If I ever manage, I may talk about it but it will be shameful. I am such a loser. It’s very true so fine to admit it.
Alvaro will cook food. A very carby one. My old fav (definitely not something I particularly like now). It’s an October weekend (i.e. I don’t try hard to do carnivore) but carbs are about the last things I want now… We will see. I probably will get a little taste and that’s it. Not when hungry. I have pork, eggs and I want 2-3 rashers of super crispy bacon!
Tomorrow I put some pork and the organ not-sausage into the oven. As it has some carbs but I am curious. And I really want to try my carni November on Monday even if it’s not that month yet. Monday is the natural starting day for me. And I had enough of plants, totally. I never desired carnivore more than this. It would be nice if it would last for long but it wears off as the negative effects of plants go away and that does it very quickly. I usually don’t even need to do carnivore, just fast for 10-something hours.
Fortunately feeling right doesn’t mean I feel any inclination to eat off. I need a longer time for desires to emerge. Oh I am so curious what will happen in November but I really try to do better than ever. Measly 2 weeks on carnivore, it’s my record even though it was true carnivore if I remember well, not my usual carnivore-ish with little extras. As it was my early days when it was a novelty and I was enthusiastic. But I barely had any meat and couldn’t eat much meat either (maybe I could pull off 0.5 pound a day? I have no notes, just vague memories) so it should be better now… Even though I still believe I don’t need pure carnivore. But it’s not so hard to do it for some weeks (theoretically) and I like 100% things to some extent. They may prove useful too. Tiny extras are fine but if I manage without them, for weeks, I probably will want/need them way less later and that’s neat. I aim to reduce amount and frequency of my mostly harmless little extras. And it’s good not to depend on so many things. If I occasionally choose the easy or more joyful way without negative consequences, fine but if I can just be without it…?
I should leave the forum for a while, today I very strongly use it for thinking. I am half awake, by the way. Sooo tired. I just sat in a car and did some shopping, how come it can tire me out this much?
The house is still warm enough, my room is 20C but I do need some warm pajamas sitting in front of my computer in the evening… I have a super thick fluffy warm blanket with 3 huge cat heads on it, their bodies hidden behind 2 balls of yarn, it’s from my Aunt.
The rest of the house is a bit colder but not by much. And now I want sunshine, we had enough rain and gloom.
I still drink coffee here and there (nice comfort stuff after paperwork and being away all day… at least theoretically though with the right amount of cream or milk it is still nice) but I can see myself stopping, it’s not so great anymore.
@FrankoBear: I can’t follow these medical things (especially with my current tired brain but my knowledge is non-existent anyway. last time I was even less ready so skipped the things so didn’t know what exactly happened) but I wish you getting as well as possible as soon as possible! (It sounds a bit stupid, oh well. I am bad with these reactions I think.)
So there is such a thing in this world… It was new to me.
I don’t do any of these if we consider them strictly… But this “carbs last” is in the basket with all the separation I don’t get. Of course I eat everything at once like normal people… Alvaro eats everything at once too but it’s especially important for him. One has sides to go with the main dish. Many treats have multiple groups. My individual food items have multiple groups. I eat fat, protein and sugar at once in my eggs…
There is some separation possible to a very tiny extent even for me but why would I ruin my food joy? Okay, I can eat leanish juicy meat and butter separately as both are great alone… But I have a very strong inclination to eat about 65% fat food.
At least the glucose thing is easy as my carbs are normally low anyway. I saw some other pics when I checked out the “hacks”, it seems so weird to me to work on putting multiple carby foods in the best order… I totally understand one wants to eat lots of carbs but maybe some dishes could be not so carby? And a normal salad is totally carbs to me.
Maybe I shouldn’t think about these things, I am just too far. Though I still think about carby diets as my own SO has one… But he eats somehow normal…? Lots of fat and animal stuff.
By the way, he still thinks about keeping vegetarian days. Maybe he doesn’t intentionally do them but he knows when he does it. He said it’s fine if I fry the not-sausage on Sunday and he puts sausage into the dish he cooks as he didn’t eat meat on Wednesday (we visited his Mom on Thursday and Friday so we had meat then. his Mom always eats meat, we appreciated she managed to give us vegetarian food in our vegetarian years!). But his vegetarian days are pretty rare now. Not surprising, I always eat meat and he isn’t against meat, he even likes it just don’t want a whole lot and on every day of the year. But he cooks vegetarian food most of the time so sometimes he just doesn’t need meat with it, just eggs or dairy.
Sorry, I try not to come until Monday and only when my brain will feel okay. And I did something to build a better future.
