I did just learn that UPS isn’t going to be picking up the packages we shipped today, that’ll delay those packages by 1 business day but 2 actual days. Guess I should have known that since it’s on their website. Bunch of slackers!
We are having our traditional “Keto New Year’s” party tonight with our family and some friends. There are 2 boxes of crackers for the children that aren’t doing keto but the rest of the food will be ultra low carb (and delicious!). It’s also the last party I’ll be having any food at for about 4 months, so I gotta make it count =) Here’s what we’re planning on:
- Bacon wrapped Jalapeno poppers
- Little Smokies in “G Hughes” BBQ sauce
- Shrimp (with low carb cocktail sauce – it’s sugar free ketchup and horseradish)
- Diet soda with heavy cream
- Keto Eggnog
- Bacon Ranch Cheese ball with crackers
- Spinach artichoke dip
- Deviled eggs
Just to be clear: I’m not trying to gain any weight before the contest, that’ll just be more to lose. I actually lost weight this morning according to my scale. I’m just enjoying some fantastic keto foods before the experiment starts up. Speaking of the weight loss challenge: there are 136 people doing the Keto Chow DietBet challenge, that’s more than I anticipated, cool!
On a COMPLETELY unrelated note: I needed to do some bulk editing of the draft posts for the 100 days of Keto Chow (I used a plugin and a CSV to pre-populate them so I won’t mess things up), ALMOST everything came through right except for the order the posts would appear in the series. They popped into what looked like a completely random order. That meant I got to dust off my SQL skills and do a JOIN query to get all of the postmeta.meta_value for all the posts.post_title LIKE ‘100 Days of Keto (Chow)%’ then I got to change the value and re-populate them into the database with the right number. This was the kind of thing I used to do ALL DAY back in 2009-2014, it’s amazing how quickly I have to go back to StackExchange and get the correct syntax.
