      I just got an email from Chapters. My copy of the Primal Blueprint "has become temporarily out of stock and has been reordered for you. We expect to receive the item(s) shortly, and be able to ship to you within two weeks. To compensate for this inconvenience, please accept this $10 coupon to use toward any future purchase with us."

      I'm bummed that I have to wait for my book...BUT I'll take the $10!!

          #3 Move Slowly
          I went to our local Fall Agricultural Fair. I took Lily. We walked around for about an hour. She didn’t like the tractor pull noise or the country band in the hall, so we went to my sisters, where I had another glass of wine.

          #9 Avoid Stupid Mistakes
          I think so…I didn’t go into the beer garden at the fair ☺

          #10 Use Your Brain
          Some more work on the slide show.



          I had to go to visitation at a funeral home today. I hate that. It was my friend’s Uncle. He’d had a stroke and they finally pulled the plug. We used to go snowmobiling with him.

            Saturday

            #1 Food
            Bacon, avocado, tomato salad
            THEN I went to a wedding.
            Salad, (NO bun!), mixed veggies, mashed potatoes & gravy (just a tiny bit, because I didn’t want to be the only one without) one breaded, fried chicken breast (YUM) tons of roast beef (SO tender), and a piece of cherry cheesecake (Yeah, I know, not primal, but…)
            The midnight snack was sausages, veggies & dip and bun – BUT I didn’t have the bun!

            Of course it was a free bar…

            #2 Avoid Poisons
            Not so good.
            I didn’t have the buns, but I did have the breaded chicken and the cheesecake.
            And did I mention the free bar? Too many glasses of wine, and way too many cherry whiskey and orange juice drinks. I didn’t keep track. I wasn’t stumbling, but I wasn’t sober.

            #3 Move Slowly
            I danced all night. After the first 3 dances, I ditched the 3”heels and was barefoot.

            #4 Lift Heavy
            Nope

            #5 Sprint
            Nope

            #6 Sleep
            11:00 (WOW, Really early for me) and woke my son up at 6 for work, then back to sleep till about 10 am (Friday night & Sat am) Bed Sat night (or Sunday morning) about 1:30 am.

            #7 Play
            I danced all night. Till 1am.

            #8 Sunlight
            Nope, and I forgot my Vitamin D.

            #9 Avoid Stupid Mistakes AND #10 Use Your Brain
            Well, not so good. I did take off the killer heels and go barefoot. BUT I had WAY TOO MUCH alcohol. I don’t even know how much. Really. I remember the evening, so no blackouts or anything like that (of course I haven’t had those in…oh…20 years). I didn’t throw up. I don’t have a headache this morning. (of course it is 11am)

            Did I mention it was a free bar??

                  Wow. I am SO far behind in posting…and the bad thing about getting behind is that the longer you wait, the harder it is to get caught up...so, a brief summary:

                  Sunday & Monday:
                  I had two insanely busy days glued to my computer, finishing the slide show for the Plowing Match (that started Tuesday.) I worked till 2am, then up and off to the Plowing Match by 7am (an hour away) on Monday till noon then back home and in front of the computer again. I did my best to follow the 10 “Laws”. I ate well, avoided poisons, I made myself take breaks from the computer to do wall pushups (which really helped between my shoulder blades). I didn’t do so well on the get lots of sleep (about 4 hours each night). No play, no sun. I used my brain WAY TOO MUCH…

                  Tuesday:
                  Of course after the two insane days, I had to go volunteer at the Plowing match on Tuesday.

                  Wednesday:
                  Guess what? I was sick on Wednesday. Just a head cold, but it wiped me out.
                  Totally wiped me out.

                  Today:
                  Back to the Plowing Match. Volunteering again. 8am till 5pm. LOTS of walking around. Too much sun. The 1st day of Fall, and I get my 1st sunburn of the season! My face and chest are a lovely shade of red. At my age, I really should know better.

                  Tomorrow: back to normal life...

                        What I've lost so many hours of sleep working on:

                        The 20 minute, looped slideshow on the monitor...showcasing various "Cultural" events in the county...

                            Well, when I got groceries today, I had a weak moment and I bought “Real Fruit” gummies.
                            I ate the whole bag ☹ BUT this was the 1st time I had candy since the challenge started…
                            And I did have the 2 glasses of white wine

                              Question:

                              When I'm NOT signed in and I look at my journal, I can't see the 3 photos I've posted
                              BUT
                              When I AM signed in, I can see them?

                              Why?

                              Can anyone else see them?

                                It's that way for me as well. I think only members can see links and inline photos. (I like that.)

                                That setup pic is beautiful!
