    Day 23

    breakfast - nothing, was not very hungry
    lunch - at a Chinese restaurant; various fairly compliant dishes (except for oil) and vegetables, but I felt like eating some rice
    snack - fruit salad
    dinner - none, too full (edit: I got hungry later and ate a few Brussels sprouts sautéed in bacon fat, with horseradish)

    Movement - about 30 minutes of walking (even this was rather exhausting with the cold)

    Sleep - I slept looooooooong but spent the whole day being tired. Going to bed now.

    Mood - good, considering the circumstances (especially the muscle aches are annoying, and swallowing is hard - I only tolerate warm ginger tea)

    Work and life balance - I had to get some work done, but it didn't bother me much.

        you are doing great! Congratulations! I have just given in. Which is horrible. I just want to get through the holidays and pick up from there. Really impressed with your ability to stay on track!

          I don't feel like I am completely on track. I've been eating way too much fruit because of the cold, and also various sweet pastilles to relieve my sore throat.

          I am sure there will be a huge support thread in January - more people will want to join, and it will be somehow easier to maintain discipline.

            breakfast - duck liver with bacon and onions, an endive, 1/2 pear
            lunch - chicken breast sautéed in lard with assorted vegetables (carrot, fennel, green beens, bell pepper) and champignons, leafy greens
            snack - various citrus fruits, some mascarpone, some dark chocolate

            Movement - none

            Sleep - quite poor

            Mood - quite bad - a major headache associated with the cold

                  Day 27

                  breakfast - just something quick: canned tuna (in olive oil) with a bell pepper
                  lunch - I had planned a decent meal but because of circumstances I just warmed up some sausage and ate them with mustard, horseradish and an endive
                  dinner - sweet potato and a bit of pork shoulder cooked in butter, with garlic and leafy greens

                  Movement - about 1 hour (walking to the physician and back)

                  Sleep - horrible; I developed middle ear infection that woke me around midnight, and I couldn't fall asleep after that (because of pain)

                  Mood - decent considering the whole situation

                  Work and life balance - this would be too much work even for a good day, but surprisingly I don't mind at all
