Alvaro bought a rabbit!!! It was so, so long ago we ate some. Not my top favorite but makes a good stew (despite being lean) and it’s home-raised, young rabbit (so it has a tiny fat but it’s still rabbit, not much).
I bought some turkey (neck, good for soup) with more plastic I like but I really wanted some already… But hopefully I will find some in the meat counter tomorrow, we visit the city including a hypermarket where turkey on a great sale is a very common thing (and good without sale too). I can’t even buy turkey in the closest villages and towns or just very occasionally.
I skipped lunch today so no food yet, it’s 4:30pm so I hope for an OMAD day. I am not very satiated but definitely not hungry.
Oh I didn’t add details. My pillow is flat (though my old style pillow is small, not flat, not plump, very soft. I always had them. I needed a small pillow. I used my arm as pillow in nursery school, I need a pillow. I don’t know how I ended up with this flat thing but it works), the plump pillows are the decorative ones next to me, on their own mattress together with the plush animals.
I can’t sleep with a big pillow at all. As a kid, I still used the traditional style, big pillow (and my small pillow on it and my arm underneath, I never lost that habit but I have no idea where I could put my arm when I lay on my side anyway), not a too plump one, thankfully… But I realized it’s better without, my posture is more logical and comfortable if I don’t have a huge bump under my head and shoulders…
But I still don’t think it has much to do with my woe
I tracked. Around 2500 kcal for today. I very rarely ate this big meals on HCHF (including on OMAD) and my meals tend to get smaller as I eat less carbs… But it’s pork shoulders roast and pancakes for you. Or for me. The meat wasn’t sooo great but I was a bit hungry. It seems I often don’t like meat without visible fat. The meat seemed not lean, it’s shoulders, after all… But i only liked the pieces with a layer of fat on them. But it’s not with all cuts. Thigh was good even when lean. Pretty, nice pink meat… I miss it now. But there is something with this meat, I ate shoulders numerous times and it’s different now… I even bought it in the same place but it’s a hypermarket and keeps pork from various sources.
I actually had a bigger dinner and an afterthought when I realized 1.5-2 hours later that I am still not satiated at all. So I did stop at 2000 kcal. My body has this illogical fixation for 2000 kcal. It is my minimal daily intake under “normal” circumstances (carnivore totally broke that, I typically eat less even vaguely close to carnivore. I ate this amount both on keto and low-carb when I ate as little as I comfortably could. except when I ate more, obviously as no way I don’t go over this tiny amount regularly - just because my energy need is smaller. hopefully I am more active than that now! but I had some inactive times) and it is my normal maximum for a meal. I can go over it easily but not without wrong choices, not wrong but special items or simply not stopping eating when reaching full satiation. But the latter is some serious eating disorder or compulsion, even I barely met it a few times.
I hope I will be okay tomorrow, I go to the city for my blood test to figure out if I can donate blood plasma! I hope I can, I need the money and the mental/emotional reward that I do something good!
We will visit Alvaro’s mom more often, I really shouldn’t relax my ways every time, not even to the extent I do nowadays (in my old on/off keto times it was full blown cake and bun eating) so I packed a lot of pork and some eggs for tomorrow. I need it anyway, I often only get a a chicken leg, maybe 2 and it’s nothing to me.
By the way, 2500 kcal or not (probably less, the meat lost some fat. but not very much), I am quite energetic after my big meal. Maybe because it’s evening when my energy is highest - the energy I feel as energy. I have strength to do my workouts around noon but I am still a borderline zombie then. (I can raise my weight for my chest press, yay, it happened today!)
I feel the food and I like sitting now (I walked a lot and run too, I like sitting since then) but I feel energetic mentally or how should I call this. I don’t know, I rarely analyze these feelings. But I feel better than usual I think… I will focus on it more in the future.
