Wild dogs were having dinner by the time we got there. It was getting dark and I took this shot hundreds of meters away acrossing the river. I wasn't even sure I got it. Yup, I was lucky. #carnivore #worldcarnivoremonth #wildlife #wilddog
Sausages 🐷 I didn't eat any, but my husband said it was good ☺
Being relaxed, at peace with yourself, confident, emotionally neutral loose, and free-floating – these are the keys to successful performance in almost everything. – Wayne W. Dyer So I really like this girl but she blocked me 😂 I swear I've never said anything offensive to her except for ' You're so talented! You're so beautiful!' And I've never bothered her with my hideous questions or complaints. Not sure why she hates me 🤔 Maybe because I'm whinny, nagging, boring and annoying 😂 All right then. I would be lying if I said it didn't bother me but I still think she's cool and I like her 😉
My husband said my keto breath stunk so I'm not talking to him 😶 So, I'd like to fill you guys in on some changes and things I've noticed. Been feeling off these two weeks, bloating, constipation, bingeing, anxiety, sleep disturbance, minor canker sores, weight gain, etc. Possible reasons: female hormones, stress, adrenal burnout, too much lean protein without added fat, hot weather (it's my first summer in the past 5 years) and dehydration, not having eaten steaks nor organs meat for a while...What I've been doing since Monday to fix the problems:1, Electrolytes in my water. 2, Adding fermented sour milk and juice from one lemon per day to get things moving. 3, Snacking on butter since I don't have fatty cuts in stock. 4, Ate two rare steaks on top of everything I ate on Monday and another two yesterday. 5, No workout while keeping my morning walk. It backfires every time I get aggressive in my workout. Truth: I've been struggling and thinking about going back to keto, but I'm still trying to hang in there for longer, reasons being: 1, I can't handle most veggies and I don't like them as they mess up with my gut. 2, Veggies are expensive. Yes, more expensive than meat here. 3, Grocery shopping is tricky. Unlike living in the US, I have to make multiple trips to different stores to get fresh produces, and it requires careful timing and LUCK. What's next: 1, Get my protein fat ratio straight and up my fat intake. 2, Start tracking. Not going to restrict too much, but I have an event coming up and I need to get into my dress. This 'eat until satisfied' thing feels good but currently not helping with that. When I don't feel well and nothing fits, my binge eating disorder is lurking and ready to attack at any time. I'd like to trust the process but sometimes life happens. And welcome to the world of a compulsive eater. 3, Keep fermented milk and lemon in my life even if they are not carnivorous or zero carb. 4, Please don't troll me if I finally had some avocados in my plate later. Not this month obviously. And what if I failed at carnivore WOE and were to try something different? No big deal. I'll do what works for me. To each their own. Cheers 🍻
I had two chicken breasts for lunch and it tasted gross. So I fried three eggs in butter and ate a second lunch. This time it felt right. I have been having amasi aka fermented sour milk this week. It does contain 3 grams of carb in 100 ml but my gut is happy with it. And I feel FREE 💃👻
Mom sent me pictures from home. The frost!! So beautiful!!
My husband just dug out this email by chance today and now he's freaking out. He bought $200 worth Kotex Sleek for me a couple of months ago at Walmart.com and there are still so many of them left in my drawer 😂 I don't worry that much, but he apparently loses his cool after reading reports of tampon pieces left in the body. Has anyone bought these? Did you or will you throw them away?

My husband got upset today. Apparently someone saw this picture of mine on his phone and asked if it was his daughter 😂 He turns 35 in 2 days and he can't help being not just nostalgic, but wistful. So let's give him some space. It might take a while to sink in 😝 #nostalgia #melancholy #timeflies #big35
Pork ribs for my husband. I'm not a fan of pork (except bacon, duh 😉) but it smells good in the oven. I had a few tablespoons of amasi today and my belly is happy 😆 Amasi is fermented milk that tastes like a cross between cottage cheese and plain yogurt. It is traditionally prepared by storing unpasteurised cow's milk in a calabash container to allow it to ferment. Last year I gave two lidded clay jars to a local friend who helped me move into my new apartment. He said they were perfect for making amasi. And he has his own farm and cows! So unlimited fresh raw milk and amasi for him! Everybody has their own cows and goats! Cattle outnumber people here in Botswana is no joke! 😆

As you can tell I'm a dog person, but I absolutely adore kittens! Today I said something really stupid and I feel so sorry. My butcher adopted two kittens two months ago and he has been keeping them in the store. Today when we were there chatting with him, one of the kittens hugged my feet and meowed to me and wouldn't let go! My heart was melting just looking at those eyes! The kittens are so tinny and are literally the skinnest kittens I've ever seen. So I asked the owner what he has been feeding them. He said that it's too expensive to feed them meat so he feeds them cooked rice and maize soaked in stock. He doesn't want them to get the taste of meat so they don't get greedy. I flipped out. For God's sake he is a butcher! And why did he even adopt them in the first place if he thinks feeding the cats is expensive? I said I'd like to adopt the kitten who just hugged me with its tiny paws if he doesn't want to keep her. My husband said I was crazy and rude to say something like that to its owner's face so I had to let go. Now I see that was inappropriate and I felt embarrassed and frustrated. I don't know, I guess I just think those kittens deserve better care, but who am I to judge? OMG I've become those vegan people!! Seriously, I know it's not my kittens to feed, but you should see how skinny they are!!! On the way home I almost cried and I thought about feeding them whenever I'm there buying meat. But the owner made it clear that he doesn't want his kittens get used to eating meat. I'm afraid that if I feed his cats meat I won't be welcomed there. I'm still thinking about those kittens 😭
#grocery today. I have $30 budget and here's what I've got. Ground beef*2, chicken feet*2, chicken hearts*2, pork ribs, smoked ham for hubby, a whole chicken, plus 3 dozen eggs, 2L milk and 1L amasi. Tight tight budget this week, but I tried 😂 Most of these are for my husband except the ground beef and eggs. I may try some amasi but not too much of course. I still have tons of beef fillet and tips, Salmon, beef liver in the freezer so I'll be good. #carnivore #carnivorediet #carnivorelife #carnivorelifestyle #carnivoreforlife #allmeat #allmeatdiet #grocerytrip #groceryshopping #carnivoreclub #carnivoretribe #worldcarnivoremonth #carnivorewomen #meatgirl #meatlovers #eatmeatdrinkwater #zerocarb #nocarbs #nocarb #carnivoreketo #ketocarnivore #keto #ketosis #ketogenic #ketolife #ketoaf #ketofam #lchf #fatfueled
Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
Every time I see baby elephants my eyes well up. I can spend hours and hours watching them and never get tired. I remember having lunch by the lake the other day while watching elephants showering and playing in the water, it felt like my soul has been cleansed and I'm a child again, without a care in the world. #wildlife_vision #wildlife_inspired #wildlifelovers #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifefriend #wildlifepics #wildlifeonearth #wildlifesafari #wildlifeconservation #wildme #animals #animalovers #animalfriends #elephant #elephantbabyshower #elephantlover #elephantfamily
Day 11 of #worldcarnivoremonth 🐂🍤 🐣 Beef patties, shrimps and egg, fried in tallow. I've been loosely tracking my macros in the past three days. Not that I'm going back to restricting, but knowing where I am and experimenting is always a good thing for me. I've been raising my protein higher by intentionally opting for leaner meats without added fat to reach 2:1-3:1(protein:fat) in grams. And I can tell that I DID NOT feel good with higher protein lower fat. Although protein is supposed to promote satiation but for me this only works when combining with enough fat. I immediately felt hungry after eating lean protein and had cravings to snack throughout the day. And I woke up earlier in the morning then got ravenous at 10 am(My normal first meal time is around noon and I don't get hungry before that) even though I didn't reduce my caloric intake (I ate 180g protein yesterday! Guess what?! I was still hungry!) I didn't measure anything but my guess is that too much protein and too little fat drive my glucose high. Fattier meat suits me better although I do find I don't crave fat that much as I used to as I've put on quite a bit body fat. So I may bring down my protein intake back to 1:1 protein fat ratio to see how I feel. It's all about #selfexperiment to find out my personal #proteinthreshold #workout was 30 min body weight toning workout. #eatmeatdrinkwater #nohunger #nosnacking #nocravings #nobinge #nocarbs #nodairy #allmeat #fatfueled #carnivore #carnivorediet #carnivorelife #carnivorelifestyle #zerocarb #nocarb #carnivoreketo #ketocarnivore #keto #ketosis #ketogenic #ketolife #ketoaf #ketofam #lchf
