Days 29-35 are complete with attention paid to all of the following:

1) Strict keto meals with 1 or 2 meals a day on non-fasting days,
2) Longer IF (36-48 hour) session during each week, and 1 multi-day IF a month,
3) Reduction of cheese and other dairy products with the exception of HWC or butter, cheese limited to rare occasions on holidays or milestones,
4) Physical activity every day whether it's strictly exercise-based or work around the house,
5) Meditation at least once a day,
6) Further develop mindfulness and focus on a daily basis to truly understand those with different views or perspectives.

Just received the new BG/Ketone blood meter, Keto-Mojo. Will take it for a test drive today. This will enable me to stay strict with meals to stay in ketosis and identify those foods that are obstacles to this goal. As with Ken, I'm preparing for Thanksgiving by being strict beforehand. With family coming to visit from MA, the clan psychology will be in force with birthdays to celebrate tagged onto all this. I'm very strict with foods consumed (never sweets or gps), not so strict with portions. We'll see how it goes, but an accurate meter will help navigate out of this. Also, it will be interesting to see what happens with BG and ketones with a larger portion than normal of proteins consumed.

Default day 5 of 5 this week

goals: Fall quarter (to Winter Solstice): 15 min a day cleaning something 5 days a week. (Goal is to deep clean house/ pack and sort/discard stuff)
I have a sub-task here too. Exercise. I want to spend 20 min 5 days a week exercising.

spent 15 min sweeping up broken glass in the garage - he has one of those floor lamps with moveable "arms" and a flourescent spiral light in each holder - it fell over last month and some bulbs broke - I can't move my cat out there until that is cleaned up, so I did that, then picked up some boxes from a pile where they were thrown, and gathered the multiple jewelry containers and put them together.

Spent 20 min outside tonight (61 degrees out! I was actually chilly) doing A Morning Cup of Yoga - the easier ones today. I spent all day shelving at the library - more than usual, so the knee was not happy.

I fell short of one day's worth of exercise - Tues I did the house but not exercise. Just doing what I can, striving for 5 days but not losing sleep over it. I do know Friday Sat and Sunday are tough days, I am pretty tired out by then. Made myself do this tonight. I was ready for bed when I got home from work, but had to grocery shop first and get gas.
