Busy doing DIY today

I wanted to check my keto status this morning, having fasted for evening meal last night.  Happy to say, it is up at 3.2 as you can see above.  I am also doing some woodworking DIY today, and won’t have anything to eat until I have finished.  I should be well into ketosis this afternoon.

Thoughts on the day

Holland and Barrett didn’t have any berberine so I had to rely on getting it online.  So far, it’s not arrived.  Given the fact that I didn’t order it until last night, I can’t see it getting here before the weekend, unfortunately. 

I was impressed with my 3.2 ketone reading, and I’m working on DIY all day, so, should b hopefully be smashing it by tonight.

Tumour Feedback

None so far as I type this section before taking the dog for a walk.

That was this morning, and can gladly repeat the same as I type this late afternoon.  I am, however, going out to an Indian restaurant for my evening meal.  I will obviously be trying to stick to “keto friendly foods”

Update, restaurant food, still in ketosis, at 1.5 just and no feelings from the tumour area so far.

Breakfast

Green Tea, nothing else, I’m on my second cup as I type this.

Lunch

Fast

Dinner

Indian food at the restaurant.   My one sin was a poppadom, Oh, and half a bottle of Rioja.  I pointed them up like a proper weight watchers customer and it has worked out fine.  Took my measurements an hour after visiting the restaurant and am really happy that I  haven’t slipped out of ketosis.  At 1.5 that’s a result.   I was not looking forard to the results afterwards.

My own worst enemy.

Yes, that’s me.  I’m my own worst enemy.  I got to 3.2 today, after going all evening, and all day today on a fast.  Yes, earlier, it was 3.2, but tonight, after drinking 1/3 of  a bottle of scotch, it’s now at 0.9. absolutely gutted.  I feel like I’m back at square one.  If I find it difficult to go to the toilet tomorrow, then, I might as well end it all.  This really is driving me mad.
