The protein diet, day 10.

I had the shittest night of sleep in a while last night. Only got 4 hours. I had to wake up early coz Mic called in for help taking apart a wooden deck for some free high quality outdoor wood. So being best friends, you do that shit even though you hardly slept and have zero energy ;-)

I packed some food to take with me. As of today I'm entering phase 2 of my diet and therefore I'm allowed to eat some meat, fruit and dairy again. So I took this apple. Until I found out that apple ain't allowed until phase 3...

So I bought these. It's a cross between a mandarin and an orange. Tastes nice!

Mic's dad, Olf, came along as well. it was a bit of shit job coz everything was screwed together really, really, really, really well.

But we got there in the end.

I had to take breaks coz I nearly blacked out twice due to my diet. Physical labour of this magnitude is not going down well on this diet apparently...

In the evening I went to Simone and we both had real meat again for the first time in 10 days. I'm lucky with her, she cooks me very nice things. Healthy things too!

In the evening I played a game called "Phase 10" with her and the kids. I like being with them very much.

I saw clouds. That's about as exciting as things got today.

The protein diet, day 8.

This was this morning's snacky. A caramel bar. Awesome! I just don't understand how they can use this in their diet. This was bought through the proteine store you see.

I combined half a packet of tagliatelle and half a packet of chili and added beans. It made a very nice dinner. Both the tagliatelle and the chile were proteine food.

In the evening I went to my car. Nice skies.

I picked up the LPG parts so I can send them off. Somebody made a nice offer and I'm happy to get rid of them.

The protein diet, day 7.

The geese family likes to have breakfast at this spot. They have gotten a bit used to me, they don't freak out so much anymore when I walk past.

I used the microwave at work for the first time today and I was amazed at its simplicity. Two buttons only and it does exactly what it needs to do. I love it.

I heated up proteine soup for lunch. It's spinnach with bits of chicken. It tasted great (it's expensive ;-) ) and it was such a welcome change from the bloody salad every afternoon!

The protein diet, day 6.

Hey! This looks like yesterday's breakfast... That's because I liked it so much better than the liquid stuff :-)

Lunch was a pancake and salad again. And water. How much salad can a person eat?

I think one of my Christmas trees isn't quite happy :-/

The protein diet, day 5.

I wanted something more solid for breakfast so I got some special crackers with strawberry jam from outer space. The jam has zero anything. I spreads different but reasonably well and it tastes alright. Nice.

Opposite Wester kerk on my way to work.

Trees along the canals are getting leafy. Very nice :-)

I need a new passport so I had to go down town to the city hall. I was extra early coz I needed to be get to work. Had to wait for 20 minutes before we were allowed in...

So quiet.... Wish I could've stayed for the day ;-)

The Psycho Cowboy is still there. Rotting away.

In front of my work these guys got a flat tyre on their trailer. Figuring out where to put the jack is not one of their strongest points...

The protein diet, day 4.

Simone's breakfast and my breakfast. Her's was better coz it was dark chocolate...

Dinner was chili con carne (proteine part) with steamed beans (real food part). It was pretty damn good I must say.
