Take out food again tonight. I'll be very happy to have my new kitchen for some home cooking again, and it's looking beautiful. Tomorrow night it will be completed, and then reloading it after that.

It was a good day today though leaving the workers alone, and us away from the noise, making ourselves useful taking care of our sweet little baby grandchild as she recovers from eye surgery at her house. What a little charmer she was! What a trouper..trying to entertain us, and she sure did. Life is good.
More of the same tomorrow.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

I tried the ATK Wild Rice and Mushroom soup. It was very good. I personally think that it needs either some white or brown rice to offset the chew of Wild Rice. Added a caprese salad too.

Yes I was surprised not to be immediately hungry but I did get coffee withdrawals, e.g. headaches - how about you?
Mostly water, but I did cheat just a bit and have a little coffee - only one cup, and only in the morning. I have trouble functioning without caffeine. I hadn't heard about a connection between fasting and high blood pressure. I'll have to read up on that, because my blood pressure tends to be somewhat on the high side to begin with.

I've found that fasting does wonderful things for lowering blood glucose, however. Just avoiding any post meal insulin jumps makes me feel better.

I did end up breaking my fast last night and had a small meal of lambs' kidneys in mustard sauce, a la Delia Smith. It's a rich dish and I wasn't terribly hungry anyway, so I kept the portion small.
