Today was another busy but rather good day.
I'm still learning from my mistakes. Today, I had some tofu (silly idea but...). You'll be very happy to learn, if you didn't already know it, that tofu contains 53% fat. Which accounts for my appalling statistics for the day:
- proteins: 55.4g = 9.7%
- fat: 58.3g = 26.6% (no comment...)
- carbs: 337g = 63.7%
Tomorrow is definitely going to be a better day! I need to prepare in advance with Cron-o-Meter what I'm going to have precisely. No more silly mistakes!
I jogged for about 20 minutes this morning and I'm going to stretch tonight.
I had a good night's sleep last night. I'm off to bed early tonight because I need to get up early tomorrow.
I drank a lot this morning as I needed to but I'm feeling much better than yesterday when I was completely parched.
- Hubby and I are planning to switch our family's diet to a gluten and dairy-free one. Our baby daughter has liquid in her ears and we heard that it could be caused by an intolerance to lactose. Since she doesn't want to drink the day care's milk any longer, we're no longer going to give her yogurts either and we'll see how she goes.
As to gluten, Hubby has symptoms that may be linked to it so we'll try to get rid of it in our house, step by step. We can do it. I certainly won't miss it but he and the kids are very fond of bread and pasta. I guess we just need to find alternatives. I'm confident it's do-able.
- I'm reading 'Improving on Pritikin' by Ross Horne (it can be downloaded from the Internet for free) and I love the idea that since babies only need 6% of proteins in their mother's milk, we, as grown-ups, shouldn't need any more. It was already in Douglas Graham's book and this makes perfect sense to me.
- I was eating dates all afternoon and one of my colleagues said that they make people fart. I'm only new to dates and I ate 20 of them for the first time this afternoon so I'll soon find out if this is true or not. What do you think of that?
- I had a very nice conversation with a colleague of mine I find extremely wise. She said that feeling guilty could be linked to a sense of control. So she advised me to say aloud 'this guilt is not me' and 'this guilt is not mine' (because she said that sometimes it's inherited or generously shared). She also suggested to brainstorm around the notion and jot it all down on a piece of paper to make words appear. I thought it was a very good idea!
- Finally, I'm ordering some organic zucchini from La Ruche Qui Dit Oui next Saturday. It's a direct link to French organic producers. They only come to Paris if enough people have ordered their produce for a fixed price. Fingers crossed! The zucchini is the same price as the one in the nearest discount store but the quality must be quite different. Exciting!
Thanks for reading! See you tomorrow,
