Today's Feasts

Sual Nualpradid
Today was a very primal day, and it was all thanks to my wonderful Grok.  I love you honey!

My feasting was a little low in overall calorie count, but my proportion of fat-protein-carbs was optimal for ketosis.  I had three large meals yesterday so it took some time for hunger to set in.

I woke up to the wonderful scent of coffee and breakfast being prepared by Grok (actually, it was the sound of the fire alarm that woke me, but it's the thought that matters!).  On my morning menu was a 2-egg omelette, fried in coconut oil with mushrooms and onions, and a 1/2 of a top sirloin steak on the side.

After cleaning the house, I kindly asked Grok to assemble my elliptical machine that had been collecting dust since September.  The monster-sized clothes rack was missing a washer, so Grok and I decided to give assembly a whirl without the missing piece.

I had a 30-minute workout of light walking on an incline with resistance.  I was also very happy to find out that my little netbook fits perfectly on the holder so I can watch something entertaining as I walk miles in the same spot.  I don't know how people read and workout at the same time... I honestly think they just look at the pictures!

When I was finished, I had a pork back ribs and a spinach salad waiting for me. 

Besides the wonky almost-cold that my body is fighting, it was a GREAT, relaxing Sunday.  I only need the summer weather to hit for the day to be a perfect one.

Here's a breakdown of today's feasts:

3.5oz Beef top sirloin

200g of Pork back ribs
40g of Baby spinach
65g of Tomatoes
8g of Green onions

This is NOT an average day.  I'd normally have three full meals (as breakfast would be earlier during the work week).  However, I'm very happy with this for a very relaxing day.
