It's Wednesday and I'm up at 6am!!
I woke early this morning and couldn't get back asleep so I got up and tidied the kitchen. I start work at midday on Wednesdays so I generally like to get up early (maybe at about 8am) so Ciaran and I have time to fit in a walk to Ranelagh for coffee before I head off on my bike to work at about 11.30am. A 6am wake up is a bit much though......but here we are.
I saw a great video yesterday of plans for a redesigned pedestrianised street in Malahide. It got me thinking what I would like to do this weekend (weather is forecast to be good) so I reckon I might take a trip out on the Dart with my bike to Malahide to see what the pedestrianised street is like currently. I love pedestrianised streets so much they are so calm and peaceful and it is amazing to hear the birds and wildlife on them even for example on Capel Street which is in the centre of Dublin City!What I'm reading
I happened upon this book "Breakfast is a Dangerous Meal" in the library the other day. It's by Terence Kealey who has a background in medicine and clinical biochemistry, and began to investigate breakfast and the concept of skipping it after he received a Diabetes type 2 diagnosis.
It's an interesting read for sure and it compounds a lot of how I feel currently while I am doing intermittent fasting. Personally I find that if I eat breakfast, it stimulates my appetite and I then end up snacking all day and consuming a lot more than if I just eat when I am hungry some time in the late afternoon or evening.
If, however, I was to eat breakfast I stay far away from breakfast cereals which are full of sugar and would try and eat some protein instead (eggs can't be beaten!) and in fact in recent times I've never eaten breakfast cereal in the morning but instead have eaten it in the evening when I wanted a treat (when I was not eating low carb). However, I always found it to be a slippery slope and could never stop at just one bowl, so I find for me that it works best to just stay away from it all together and instead just eat non-processed "real food".
What's going on with you? Drop me a line in the comments to let me know what you are reading, or what plans you have for the weekend!
