Back over 10% and on the Sidelines

Been on the sidelines inactive recovering from car accident issues. Did make it to the gym yesterday for the first time in two weeks.

Today's body fat measurements:
Ab: 17.6 mm
Chest: 6.7 mm
Thigh: 6.0 mm
BF %: 10.5
Reflects and increase over last month but the same % as two months ago. ah well.

Other food bits of note: Found some coconut flour, so used that for a breading to coat some tilapia. cooked in coconut oil = delightful. Next time, I think I'll prepare a mango or pineapple salsa/chutney to complement it.
More grass fed beef. Got this cut from Springdell farms (Groton, MA). Went there looking for bacon and came back with beef. Got about a 20oz NY sirloin. Only marinated for a few hours but was one of the best steaks I've had in a while. Very tender and flavorful.
This morning's breakfast: eggs, pico and farm bacon thanks to Jeff. Interesting note is that the bacon didn't smoke or leave as much of the usual bacon aroma. Tasty!
Good visit with Jeff. Hammered down the following during his visit:
Caprese salad: destroyed
Approx 3lb marinated/grilled chicken breast: almost destroyed
7egg spinach quiche: destroyed
2lb bacon meatloaf: destroyed
spaghetti squash: destroyed.
Anyway, hopefully back in the swing at the gym soon.
As a side note, been making Dec a 100% paleo compliant month. So far, so good after 11 days, despite the landmines at work.
