I VERY nearly sacked it off today. I was lying in bed and my 4am wrist alarm buzzed on my cheek because of how I was smashed and for the merest of moments I could not be arsed. But then my 4.05 phone alarm went off and I reminded myself that I would only be pissed off and have 4lbs that I can’t for the life of me shift!
I am in possession of the milk! It tastes absolutely amazing, although I have continued to read about the risk factors of raw milk and I am considering pasturising it myself. There is basically no evidence to show that there is a nutritional difference between Pasteurised and raw milk and there is tonnes of evidence showing the harm that the pathogens that raw could potentially carry. I am definitely not going to be feeding it to Leo. The whole reason I embarked on this quest wasn’t for my health, it was because I decided I couldn’t be a part of the harsh, commercial dairy industry, but no matter how much people won’t like this, Leo is more important to me than any cow, so why would I risk his life if there is no need?
The problem with us all in this day and age is thy we haven’t seen the affects of bad hygiene and regular deaths because of poor quality food. We take it for granted that everything is safe, so feel that none of it is necessary. Basically not the case. I am happy to pasturise the raw milk at home for us because I definitely do not want to be part of the industry if I can help it, but why oh why I can’t find a kind dairy that pasturise their product is beyond me.
I am feeling stronger again, my pull up quest is definitely doing well. I am struggling a little with a pain just above the articulated part of my arm, so haven’t done anything for a week with it, and that has helped overall. I am struggling with my sternum when I do dips, I always struggled with this before and I just have to come up with different tricep exercises. I think it’s tension somewhere else in my upper body, so I have been stretching it out and that feels good.
Flexibility in general is improving which is always a good thing. I’m struggling with motivation at the minute though, this is the time I have to dig deep and keep pushing. I adopt the don’t think about it strategy and then there is no debate! It’s amazing what a weekend of slight overindulgence does to me!
