    Hey! Glad to see you made a challenge journal. I added it to my favorites so I can keep up with you!

    Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

          Hey Sassa. I added you to my favorites so I could keep in touch with you. I think we will meet up at the Seattle Grok meeting, if you will be there. You live in Enumclaw? I live in Maple Valley, so we are not too far from each other! I can't wait to meet you and hopefully make my first primal friend!

              Took me forever to find your journal. This place has gotten nuts! I'm thinking the forum needs a better format for something this huge.


              Anyhow, I'm with ya on the wild blackberries and coconut milk. It's so good!

                SF!!! I posted more recipes up... I think you may be interested.


                Also your website is neato... lots of cool stuff.


                PS If you have a recipe, you can guest blog anytime on mine. That would be cool, we could all be guest bloggers.

                Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!

                    Ok, so I need to commit myself to my journal. Just got back to the office after my wonderful stay-cay and so much is here for me to do!


                    I've been mostly primal, with a small cheat at the movies (those kids and their candy and popcorn).


                    At this point, I should use my competitiveness with my husband to drive me. That sucker is more primal than I am and I converted him!!!


                    I am, as of this morning, officially 1.5 lbs away from my first goal, which is to be below 160 lbs!!!!


                    Morning workout: Squats, Lat Pulldowns, Tri-Dips, Cable Rows, Bench Presses, & Reclined Flys.


                    It's been a while since I went to the gym, but my entire vacation was still lots of activity between cleaning the house, swimming laps at the pool and hiking with the hubby, almost every morning. I even did some body-weight exercises, like pushups, tri-dips, crunches & squats with the toddler on my back!


                    Breakfast: Not accomplished yet. It's nearly 10 am and I think I am getting hungry. We'll see. It'll be Microwaved bacon and free-range eggs.


                    Lunch: Crock Pot Pork Roast and some veggies w/ baby Portabellas.


                    Dinner: Not quite sure. We have a whole Chicken that is ready for cooking, but that might mean that dinner would be very late. Oh well, Football practice ends by 8 PM, so maybe I could leave it cooking while I go to practice and then we could all eat it before bedtime.


                    I have a feeling that I am going to be sore tomorrow!


                    Primal BBQ coming up for us Seattlites! Yay!

                      That's awesome that you're so close to your goal! And definitely good idea about being competitive with your husband.


                      So sad I won't be in Washington to be with all the primals there... but hopefully there are some near where I'm going to live (45 minutes south of Fresno, CA).

                        Way to go Sassy! You'll reach your goal in no time and you'll have TOTALLY earned it. I like the idea of competing with your husband too. That's some mega motivation.

                          Emily, you're moving to CA? Fresno's awesome! We want to move down there, but no money to fund the move and no jobs lined up!


                          So, I have my Primal Challenge Contest list:


                          1. Creat Workout Video (I have some funny and different ideas!).

                          2. Recipe Video: Hubby will need to help with this.

                          3. Show your Groceries.

                          4. Primal Post-Its. Going to store soon, this should be fun!

                          5. Show your fridge.


                          Today:


                          Activity: Swimming (last night, did sprints on bike with toddler in-tow).


                          B: 4 Bacon slices and 4 eggs.

                          L: Pot Roast &/ or Pork Chop

                          D: Either hamburger-something-or-another w/ veggies or steak or chicken (depends on which is thawed out the most).


                          Good amounts of water and supplements like enriched greens and fish oil.


                          I have 2 semi-converts and another, whom I challenged to just 'try' it for a week. That one, however, just wants to tease me about my choices and then still complain that "I think I'm dying because I'm turning 40 and feel like crap", instead of just TRYING this for 1 week. :-( Hmmmmff.... I've got BETTER things to do that waste my time with you buddy!


                          Anywhoozle. Things are great. Grok and grokettes we are!

                            Aww you should totally move to Fresno! We could be primal buddies in Real Life. :-D

                            Get on careerbuilder or something! haha.

                              Going strong!


                              Last night did end up to be ground hamburger with zucchini, onions and broccoli (did I mention that my husband rocks at Primal Cooking now?!).


                              Activity: Weights - Deadlifts, military presses, standing shoulder presses, walking lunges, barbell curls, abs.


                              B: Coffee w/ creamer (the bad kind), 2 eggs & 5 pieces of bacon. Handful of juicy green grapes. OK, I guess I'll be honest, 2 Hershey's Kisses. I'm a bad girl!


                              L: Left-overs from dinner (ground hamburger and veggies).


                              D: Steak or chicken and veggies cooked in Coconut Oil.


                              I do have a peach that is just about ripe in my fridge and should be eaten soon.


                              Didn't put anything into FitDay, but from the looks of things as of now (not yet noon), I am over my 50g Ketosis daily-target! Tomorrow will be a BBQ with beer, so I'm sure that won't be a good one either ;-)


                              I'm not sweating it. The more money were are able to budget to finally getting out of this financial hole that we are in and put towards real, grass-fed beef and the like, the better, but for now, we are managing to be about 70 - 80% Primal. For me, that means trying to be about 90% Primal during the weekdays and then 80/20 on the weekends.


                              Good news! I broke the 160 lbs mark! Yup, I am now 158.25 lbs, as of this morning!!!! Hooray for me!
