It starts to be carni season again for me as only a few fruit seasons are left… I will indulge in them in weekends only if I get my way… We will see.
It was long ago I weighed myself, I will at some point but I surely am 74-75kg as always. Maybe this month will change it a tiny bit.
Summer ended, finally but it’s still quite warm. Over 25C may happen, forecast says. Probably not here, we didn’t have 25-30 here since weeks while other parts of the country had it. It’s a tiny country but big differences happen.
Every day (that isn’t something else) is Halloween for me but I never had candy for that, we didn’t celebrated Halloween when I was a kid and many people dislikes it even now and stick to their day of the dead despite it’s on the next day… Halloween is about skulls and witches and ghost and vampires and spiders everywhere, way better than candy if you ask me.
We don’t have Thanksgiving, of course so Christmas is our next potentially carby celebration. New Year is traditionally carnivore for me since years and it was keto before, maybe some fruity spiced wine happened but that’s it. As I am at home then so I cook whatever I want.
We have a family Christmas dinner elsewhere but it’s not impossible to keep it carnivore. I am just not THAT determined. I still keep it low-carb as why wouldn’t I want to ruin the celebration with inferior food and sugar poisoning? My preferred food is the same all year round.
Santa brings candies on 6th of December, that may be a problematic time but it’s just a little package from my SO’s Mom and my poor SO is ready to sacrifice himself and eat my share. About one months ago, 13 years into low-carb I finally had enough of eating any store-bought sugary food ever. I used to have some very occasionally but not anymore. And I can be very stubborn. (If I ever got Australian candy, that would be an exception but local candy? Nope. I can do so much better. And consuming keto sweets is already off eating and calms down my rebellious self.)
But yes, December isn’t a keto month for me, usually. It never was, I mean but who knows what will happen now? Carnivore changes me bit by bit.
It’s not the candy, not even the homemade baked goods (though I will bake some this year - to save us both from my SO’s Mom’s, they are very tasty and sugary. at least I will use xylitol. and of course, a somewhat lower-carb dough), it’s the tropical fruits I can’t imagine December without. Not like I don’t tend to eat them in summer too. They are banned in November and between January and May though, these are the month I have any chance to do carnivore due to the lack of fresh fruits (there are some fruits available except in May and maybe in April but little).
Fruit seasons still have a serious effect on my actual diet. I fell out of love with vegs but not fruits.
So, October is coming down from the summery, carbier style, I plan to do carnivore on weekdays and a bit more relaxed version in weekends (it’s grape season but apple too).
November should be carnivore, December should be carnivore in the first half unless I will need to practice my baking… The second half is anyone’s guess but I traditionally go super strict on the 25th of December when it becomes very easy to do. Christmas family dinner is on Christmas day and that is the 24th. The “actual” Christmas days are merely off days for me, nothing interesting happens there.
I hope I will be able to do my best in the next months. Next problematic time comes in June with many of my fav fruit seasons. It’s so easier until then. But December may be a tad tricky too (especially that I have zero inclination to resist temptation, not like I ever could to that. but I am a hedonist so I won’t go wild and ruin my quality of life when I prefer my normal food anyway).
