  • I thought I'd try the eating a protein breakfast 1st thing in the morning thing...umm, today I slept in until 10:20
    It was MY first thing in the morning I had 3 hard boiled eggs.

    Then we went into London at 1:30, I made a protein shake 'cause I was feeling a bit hungry, but there wasn't any "easy" protein in the fridge...I shopped with my youngest two and I didn't stop at $tarbucks! I bought a cast iron grill. It is seasoning in my oven right now.

    We got home in time for supper (that my Farmer made) I had spaghetti meat sauce and tomato and red pepper slices. Then a small bowl of blackcaps and ice cream. After supper, we went to my in-laws and then to my parents' booth, where I had a small scoop of Raspberry Truffle ice cream in a teacup (instead of a cone).

    Tonight, I'm doing some Photoshop for University Son's videos, seasoning the cast iron grill, and trying to read some MDA journals.

    We leave for camping tomorrow at 6pm. Back home Sunday sometime.
    So I will be grocery shopping and packing food and clothes into the trailer tomorrow.
    Maybe I'll try to get up early (like before 9 - stop laughing ) and go for a quick run before it gets hot...

    • I finally found my journal, buried only about 100 threads back

      No run, I was up, but it just didn't happen. I may have to switch to evening runs. Of course that means I'd also have to give up the wine before the run...

      Camping was AWESOME! There was about 20 people in our group. We call ourselves "Bad Campers" One evening, long ago, as a park ranger was walking by our fire, one of the guys in our group jumped out of his chair and dove under another while singing "Bad Campers, Bad Campers, whatcha gonna do when they come for you!"

      Way too much alcohol was consumed! We bought about $100 worth of perch and pickerel for the fish fry on Friday night (deep fried with fresh cut fries). Saturday night we cooked a turkey. Sunday morning we had our own omelet bar (kiss the cook) We spent the days at the beach, a small beach where we could take our 6 dogs. They had a riot!

      By Sunday I had to remove my rings, cause my fingers were swollen

      They are back to normal now.

      It is HOT here. Yesterday (and today) I'm walking around home in my bikini top and shorts (my poor kids )

      Yesterday I didn't eat until suppertime...I thought about it around 1, but wasn't hungry, so I waited, at 3, still not hungry, so I waited again.
      BBQ peameal bacon, fresh green beans from the garden, Greek salad, a small bowl of french vanilla ice cream, mint tea.

      Working with Army Wannabe Son on his college application requirements. (Letter of intent, resume, reference letters, 8 page health form...something else...oh yeah 1st semester's tuition payment) He's been accepted into one program, but he really wants another. He wont find out about the other until after a one day "camp" on August 22...

      Going to see Harry Potter on Wednesday night and I'm only on the 3rd movie...

      Oh yeah, I forgot, I "broke my fast" with a Palm Bay vodka cooler...but I only had one!

      • the camping sounds like fun... I cant believe I even said that I hate camping!

        Yes there is a lot of alcohol happening now that you're in the summer... you really might have to do some of those runs if you dont want to lose your losses. Notice I'm not saying give up the booze

        • Your trip sounds awesome!!!

          I think it's great that you're wearing your bikini top and shorts, I'm thinking I may have to be brave and buy a bikini this summer. I would ONLY wear the top with shorts (no-one wants to see my lower abdomen!) but I think it may look alright finally!

          You'll love the movie, it is really well done. A little different to the book, but not in any major way and you kinda expect it, Book 7 was looooooong!

          • Woo, another rocking camping weekend .

            We've got the same heat wave over here, and I'm loving it! Too bad I still have to work all day.

            And I must confess, I've broken a fast in a very similar manner on numerous occasions...heehee.

              • So, over the past few days I managed to watch all 7 Harry Potter movies before we left today at 4 to drive to the city for the last one.
                (This involved staying up until 1:30 last night and we finished at 2 pm this afternoon)
                It was great!
                (I cried)
                Of course I feel like I've done nothing but Harry Potter for the past 3 days

                I had a small bowl of left over potato salad mid afternoon and then I had Wendy's Berry Almond Chicken salad for supper. I ate Real Fruit Gummies, almonds and Lindt Intense Cranberry Dark Chocolate (and popcorn) during the movie...why is it that I feel the need to eat junk while at the theatre??
                Oh, and a $tarbuck's Tazo Chai Latte after the movie...

                I feel slightly sick, I think I ate too much junk...

                It is supposed to be REALLY HOT tomorrow. 38 C.
                I have to take my daughter into the city tomorrow to see her surgeon at 1:30 (It's been almost a year since her ACL operation)
                Then bring her back home to work at 4.

                I seem to be sucking at following the Primal Laws this summer...please don't revoke my PB card

                  Heeheehee . Don't worry, I think hanging around here for nearly a year and still keeping the PB ideals in mind has you in for good

                  Son #2 saw the new Harry Potter in 3D last night and said it was most excellent. To be honest, I went with them up to maybe the 4th or even 5th movie, but tended to fall asleep...bad mom. I haven't read the books either, but give due credit to the series for getting son #1 to be a reader for life.

                      I can't count the # of times I've read them (both aloud to my kids and to myself)
                      I agree, the series has made life readers out of 2 of my 4 kids.

                      I'd forgotten about that!
                      Without looking back, I'd say 2 coconut oil : 1 chocolate. The idea was to make the coconut oil edible

                      • Today.
                        It was HOT!
                        36 or 37 C!
                        I took my Daughter to London to see her surgeon (1 year anniversary apt) X-ray and check up. We go back again next year.
                        At lunch, I wasn't hungry, but I thought I should eat. I had a A&W burger patty. Meh. Then I had a Tall $tarbucks Iced Tazo Chai Latte and my Daughter and I shared a pint of blueberries.

                        Once home, I had some wine while sitting in out 7'x7' inflatable kiddie pool

                        We had burger patties with (all from our garden) new potatoes, baby carrots, and yellow beans. Then I had a small bowl of ice cream with black caps. Then I had a few pieces of dark chocolate with macadamia nut butter (the macadamia nut butter is all gone now, I don't think I'll buy any more for a while)

                        It's HOT.

                        • Mmmm, macadamia nut butter..... I recently found a jar I'd forgotten about in the back of the fridge...a spoonful here and a spoonful there, and it's nearly done. Don't think I'll be getting any more anytime soon either.

                          I found some coconut butter in a jar at a natural food store a few weeks ago for the first time. So many people on the forums have raved about this stuff that I had to buy it, though I waited a couple of weeks before opening it last week. You know what? It's exactly like the creamed coconut we've found in the little boxes that cost about $1.39, only already softened and for $10. If you took one of the creamed coconut packets, left it out at summer room temp and squashed it all around, it's the same stuff. Sure, the jarred stuff is organic, but whatever. I'll use it eventually, but not going to buy it again.

                          Nice pickings from your garden! You are a few weeks ahead of our local produce here, but I did get some new potatoes and peas from my CSA this week.

                            • Today I got up early (7:30) and went to work with my Farmer. I took a protein shake with me. I painted some exterior doors for him and then I helped pick up some brush that he'd cut. I was tossing 3' and 4' cedar trees! It was HOT, but not as hot as yesterday. We were done at 10:30 and home by 11. I jumped in the pool

                              After lunch, (a tomato, basil and feta cheese salad) we went to our friends' house. They raised 88 chickens and had just picked them up from the butchers. We were getting 20.

                              Well, after a couple of drinks, the guys decided that the wheat was ready and they left to combine my friend's wheat. My girlfriend and I jumped in her hot tub (it was set at 85 F, but it was about 90) We cooled off AND decided that we would STOP drinking! I know - a responsible hot summer afternoon decision!!! We both knew what COULD happen if we continued

                              We watched the guys combining the wheat for a bit and then I went home (5pm). We'd put a roast in the crock pot in the morning and set it in the trailer to cook (so the house wouldn't heat up) My Daughter reminded me that she had to leave for a soccer game at 6!! It's a good thing we made the "right" decision earlier

                              The chickens are still at my friend's house

                              Something strange happened to me on the way home. Something that hasn't happened in a LONG time. I got all weak and shaky. Like low blood sugar. This used to happen to me pre PB. I knew I could "fix" it by eating protein. So I ate 2 (homemade) pepperoni sticks, some 3 year old cheddar and then some of the crock pot roast. I still felt shaky. But I had to drive my daughter to soccer. While at the game, it finally went away.

                              We had ice cream after the game.

                              I feel fine now...

                                Strange, wonder why that was? That must have been rather unnerving, especially since you had to drive. Glad to hear it went away. Maybe related to working outdoors in the heat, not a lot of food and a couple of drinks earlier, could be some dehydration. Drink some water tonight young lady
