    L: Romanian meatballs, steamed veggies
    S: small apple
    D: Smoked salmon/lettuce wraps, roasted kale
    Very light kettlebell technique practice after my usual evening joint mobility work
    S: guilty pleasure of a bit of hot whole grass-fed milk with a bit of 100% cacoa powder mixed in - fabulous! I am trying to really cut back on sugar, I've let that get a bit out of control recently.

    B: 2 waffles with butter, dried cranberries, walnuts, 2 chicken/sage sausages, blueberries, strawberries, coffee
    went on a 27 mile ride, fairly fast, for me. I ate 1/2 of the left over Lara Bar from yesterday before I began, at around 11. Had a bottle of Skratch Lab lemon-lime during the ride.
    L: ate with the guy I rode with, plus someone else we saw when we stopped. I had a salad with chopped chicken, definitely not enough. I rode home for the last 7 miles and finished the left over grilled veggies and quinoa I had at home.
    S: decaf, slice of Machengo
    D: 2 chili spice rubbed thin pork chops, mashed parsnips, roasted broccolini. 2 squares dark chocolate

    I am starting a month-long intermittent fasting experiment that will also have a sugar detox rolled up into it. I've started a journal at Mark's Daily Apple to track things, if anyone is interested in following it you can find the journal here. My kettlebell sport coach is encouraging me to try this out as nothing I do seems to affect/change my body fat percentage. I am happy with my weight, it swings between 125-127 and that isn't unreasonable for my height and frame. I spent far too many decades between 180-210! No matter how hard I work, or how much I restrict (or not) my diet, I cannot get my BF% under 30%. So, I will try this, I've tried pretty much everything else reasonable, and my approach to IF will not be extreme. There is mixed research regarding IF and women, much of it appears to indicate that it isn't as effective for women as for men. Perhaps I will be one of those for whom it will be. My version of IF will simply provide different "windows" in which to eat. Same # of calories on a daily basis, or as close as I can.

    So I will post my meals for today, and come back in a month or so

    B: eggs scrambled with baby greens, coffee with cream
    L: protein shake made with whole milk + a small banana
    KB solo workout at home that featured ALL 6 of my kettlebells - included some volume building + technical practice
    D: small chicken thigh, chicken sausage sauteed with mixed vegetables and 2 egg whites left over from making my fresh batch of mayo.
    S: too many of the little dark chocolate/coconut/cacao nibs clusters - at least 5 of them. Still under my calorie targets for today though...

    Oh yes, I made the mistake of making THIS recipe today for chocolate/coconut balls. Fab! DON'T MAKE THEM IF YOU ARE HOME ALONE You don't THINK the small recipe will make that much, but that couldn't be further from the truth. No added sugar though, so most of the calories are coming from the unsweetened coconut - which is substantial. I used 70% dark chocolate which is lighter than I would ordinarily purchase as I LOVE 85-90% dark chocolate, but since there is a good amount of cacao nibs in this recipe the chocolate shouldn't be any darker than 70%.

    Dark Chocolate + Coconut - GIMME NOW
