Funny how a day can make a world of difference. It might be an Aussie thing but if something pissed me off I’ll vent rather than bottle it in (obviously when you’re in a position of trust you can just do it there and then) so I vent, I move on and remember what matters most.
We’ve all been here at some stage I’m sure.
Realistically this Facebook life is almost surreal.
Do people read my blogs and posts?
Does it help?
Does anybody care if I post or not?
I hope the answer is yes.
The purpose of my posts are to give ideas and options and to also show that people do make mistakes and the consequences. It’s too easy to make out that things are easier than they are. Like telling someone to go cold turkey; it’s easier said then done, to expect someone to break a habit like throwing a switch and it’s done. I reading to make something a habit you need to do it consistently everyday for 30 days.
Yesterday I was angry because I thought I was helping people and I felt like it was thrown back in my face. In hindsight, I should have used my own better judgement. I can’t blame others for my own actions, regardless of what was suggested. I’ve learned from it. I’ve moved on and I’ve shared real life drama. As I’ve said from day 1, I’m not going to powder coat anything.
Yesterday reminded me Life owes you nothing, as I owe you nothing. For those arrogant asses that consistently respond to a food post demanding Recipe? Recipe? Recipe?, I owe you nothing. I feel sorry for you that you are way too lazy to help yourself, Google search and understand about substituting to make better food choices. And these people I never see post or ever contribute. It was incredible that people can be on Facebook asking group about a product but can’t read a nutrition label and look up what the ingredients are. I know let’s just post the group and ask are these OK?
I had one lady even post a comment to a recipe I posted in a keto group (it was for a dairy free fat bombs.) I’m not going to open up a can of pumpkin purée for one table spoon of pumpkin then typed F (for follow.) I wanted to respond with F U (what you can do with that can of pumpkin purée?) The fat bomb was an idea for left over pumpkins dumb ass. So I pulled the post. It’s that group that loses out, not me. Again I owe you nothing. I’ve reached my goals. I have nothing to prove. I’ve never been selfish and happy to give as many of you reading this are also the same. It’s a few bad eggs that spoil it for every one else.
Kauri is becoming the keto dessert queen. My babe has mad skills. And between us we are a powerhouse. Almost like Batman and Robin, not the camp version with Adam West and Burt Ward. More comical like the Lego movie. I saw the trailer for this I have to see it.
Even things don’t go to plan. We wanted to make a beautiful pink waffle for the females in one of our groups. The batter was a vibrant pink but when we made it in the waffle iron the colour faded away but it still tasted fantastic.
My first meal was bacon, waffles with a new filling, avocado and a decaf coffee (with 2 table spoons of coconut oil.)
Net carbs: 1.5
These were fantastic, the breakfast of champions but he was delayed so I ate it. I said before I could never eat avocado. We put some sea salt with a squeeze of lime and some dried chilli.
This morning I wanted to try something different for my ab workout. After all variety is the spice of life so I did an abdominal workout from the App Store .. 8 minute ab workout. It was actually OK. You follow the animated trainer. I’m actually going to use this for the month of February
Lunch was a snack. We did some testing of the fat bombs. I had a bullet coffee and some pork crackling. I would usually have a protein shake but I want to save this for emergencies
Net carbs: 1.4
This afternoon I was reading looking some info for my groups, finishing the blogs and responding to emails..
was pork knuckle, with some greens. We had left over prawn curry. I had a couple of jellies to up my protein intake .
As far as macros go, doing the dairy free certainly drops the carbs dramatically. This is a good thing. I look forward to seeing how the results compare at the end of the month.
