I rendered my own tallow for the first time today. It turned out beautifully! Now, what do I use it for?
Yesterday was a little crapalicious. No grain still, but too much sugar.
TODAY though!!! today is day one of a 15 day personal challenge.
I will Daily-
Eat at least 60%from fat, 70 would be better
Eat no grains,
No sugar (may cave for a tsp of raw local honey at night, for my allergies)
No potatoes, limited starchy veg
No fruit- except berries. I serving daily
No alcohol (may have 1-2 glasses red wine TOTAL on the weekends. Not per night.)
Much veggies, Meat, Eggs, Fat, and some dairy. Raw milk in my coffee- good! Raw cheese in moderation- good! Butter- yay!
Move a little more, sit on the computer a little less
Sleep more. I have been staying up too late, and not feeling well because of it. in bed by 11 is my goal.
Walk 3-4 times
IF 2-3 times for 16+ hours (fat and coffee with cream are fine)
Lift heavy things 1-2 times (probly will do the playground thing with the kids for the most part. Also will work on my pullups again)
Go to one yoga class (1 a week is free at a local studio that has an awesome Karma program. There is no excuse for me not to go!)
Whew! That felt good to write out! This morning I am fasting to get it started, though I am having coffee with whole milk (coffee addiction is NOT something I want to tackle now. I like coffee. ) Will break it at about 1 pm, unless I really feel I need something before then. Probably have an omelet with ham and sharp cheddar for that.
Dinner is Roast chicken and green beans, salad. I'm going to experiment with some mineral water/lime mix for a "cocktail" to sip as I am a creature of habit and will want to sip something once dinner comes around.
