            • I've got the avatar, at last.

              I just haven't figured out how to start a new thread.

              Is it my imagination, or does learning new software get harder each year?

                    If a man has the right to self-ownership, to the control of his life, then in the real world he must also have the right to sustain his life by grappling with and transforming resources; he must be able to own the ground and the resources on which he stands and which he must use. In short, to sustain his human right. - Murray Rothbard

I've physically spiraled out of control in part due to that. Finally getting sleep, and have recovered from a serious bought of winter/preschool cooties... I'm bound and determined to get it together, uncover the body that I KNOW exists, feel good and play with my kiddos! After I gather and cook meals... that is

                              • So I've put off doing this because I'm not big on introductions. And yet now I've succumbed.

                                Your location: Oh let's be obnoxious and say "Earth".

                                Age (If you want): By Earth years, I'm 27.

                                How Primal are you: How Primal are YOU? So basically I was eating a very-nearly-primal diet for two years until I was talked into adding back in some whole grains because gosh, they must be healthy for you since your energy improves on them. (Yeah, my energy improved because I was eating like 8 servings of them per day. I think that would do anybody in. At least at the start.) I've been struggling with addiction since that time, but have resolved to go sans grains once again, because I don't feel the urge to binge eat without them so strongly.

                                Do you consume dairy: Just butter. Other forms make me mucusy and ruin my workouts (from coughing up so much phlegm).

                                Do you drink coffee or tea: Yech. Never developed a taste for these two. Well, I can enjoy a peppermint tea rarely.

                                Motivator for switching to Primal: Improve health, attain abundant energy, freedom from food cravings, lose 20lbs of body fat, be hot babe, etc.

                                Favorite exercise: I like running. I really do. But it sucks. So I think I enjoy weight lifting the most, actually.

                                Favorite Primal food: I found the most amazing grass-fed organic beef patties from a local source. OMG amazing.

                                Best part about being Primal: Simplicity.

                                Worst part about being Primal: Having to erase the incorrect condition you've received in your life up until going Primal. Like accepting that the mainstream dietary advice is all messed up, that you don't have to destroy yourself with crazy taxing workouts to lose weight and be fit, that the sun is actually GOOD for you, etc. etc. It's like some messed up psych experiment.
