I realized this morning that including yesterday I have 18 days until my next body scan.
The good news is that I'm in ketosis as of this morning, it only took 36 hours, and my weight is down 2 lbs. which of course is partly water weight. I'm enjoying a good cup of coffee with lots of cream and will make myself a duck egg omelet with pepper jack cheese and some parsley and lots of sea salt. I've increased my magnesium to almost 800 mg, Vitamin D to 4000 I.U., 2000 mg fish oil and also taking some extra Zinc and Selenium, all with doctor's approval. After breakfast I'm going swimming and, depending on the weather, later will either go horseback riding or running.
I'm also going to take this chance (it's my day off) to reread some segments of Volek and Phinney "Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living" and "Art and Science of Low-Carbohydrate Performance." I'll also take another look at "The Atkins Essentials", and at "Developing Swimmers" by Michael Brooks.
To keep things balanced I'm hoping to delve into "Complete Training of Horse and Rider" by Alois Podhajsky, a former director of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
If there's still time left I have a couple of good documentaries lined up.
It's rainy here today, but after almost two months of drought rain looks and feels wonderful right now, in fact a run in the rain, at a moderate 60's sounds great. Just a question if I can drag any of the dogs along as they are sleeping peacefully in their baskets in the kitchen as I'm typing.
This should be a very fun day.
And here is my breakfast: 2 jumbo-size duck eggs scrambled in 2 tbsp. virgin coconut oil with 2 slices if pepperjack cheese and lots of parsley
