I took a rest from the Press-up challenge. (See my post yesterday and the day before).
I broke my fast with some fried bacon fat (taken mostly from Bill’s bacon), 2 rashers of bacon, 1 Duck Egg and a Smoked Kippered Mackerel and finished off with my usual cream + Cream cheese pudding. This will keep me going for a good 24 hours or so.
I took my blood readings before eating and am pleased with them. Blood glucose: 4.4 mmol/l and blood ketones 1.2 mmol/l. I was expecting better, but it’s good enough to effect autophagy, the body’s way of cleaning out dead and damaged cells in order to generate newer, healthier cells.
I’ll resume my press-up challenge tomorrow and hope to beat my record of 36 or 37 I did yesterday in 1 stretch.
