    Our little boy is kicking up a storm in my belly. Bryan got to feel him for the first time last night. That was pretty amazing. I can see my hand jump up and down a bit if I lay it on my belly and watch closely.

    I'm swamped at work today, so I'll jump right in with yesterday's food & exercise:

    Breakfast: 1 organic apple with some all-natural hazelnut butter
    Lunch: Jambalaya (alllllmost done with that stuff) and broccoli
    Snack: 1 beef spring roll and several squares of dark chocolate
    Dinner: Burrito bowl (no tortilla) with ground meat, veggies, guacamole, cheese, salsa, pico de gallo

    I walked for about 35 minutes or so after work yesterday, with the kitties parading behind me as usual. The weather is getting nicer and nicer. Only a few weeks ago I was having to wait until dark to walk, because it was so hot. Now I can go as soon as I get home and get even more sunshine.

    Today I'll do strength training and either report it this afternoon or tomorrow morning along with today's food.

    Well, back to work for this grokgirl.

      I did notice that a medicine that gave me horrible, horrible side effects while I was eating SAD gives me no side effects with while eating Primal.

      Of course the way you eat is going to affect how you react to things!

        That's really interesting. I haven't needed any medication since I went primal, but it makes me wonder about some of the meds I've taken in the past and how they'd affect me now.

        You're completely right when you say that of course it's going to affect me (how/what I eat), and trust me, it's definitely something I know, but even after being primal for over a year, I get surprised when I see just how much food affects me - the pimples I get after eating bread, the anxiety or anger I feel after too much sugar, or the way that my seasonal allergies have mostly disappeared now that I'm primal! I guess I should stop being amazed and shocked, but it might take a long time for that to happen.

          October 1st we got some cooler weather in the Houston area, which has been amazing. But with the cooler weather every October comes some type of seasonal allergy for me. It's been happening since I was about 12 years old, and it's been every single October. We're talking sneeze attacks that last for 10 or 15 minutes, eyes that itch worse than huge mosquito bites, and some minor swelling (and not so minor itching) in my throat. I've lived on Benadryl every October since I was 12. Sometimes it's not the entire month, sometimes it is. When the REALLY cool weather sets in, the allergies disappear.

          But guess what?! I'm fine this year! We were painting on October 1st, and I felt the sneeze attacks coming, but I decided back when we were still trying to conceive that I wouldn't take any medications unless absolutely necessary while pregnant. So that first day kinda sucked, and I wondered how I'd ever make it through October without allergy medication. After that first day though, it just got easier, and now with a little saline spray, I'm fine! I get a little tickle in my throat, or I might sneeze 4 or 5 times when I first go outside, but IT PASSES. If that's not a testament to what primal eating can do for you, I don't know what is.

          I'm feeling very thankful and grateful that I ever found Mark's Daily Apple.

          And now yesterday's food and exercise log:

          Breakfast: 2 eggs fried in coconut oil with salad greens and some leftovers from Bullritos (mixed peppers, ground beef, pico de gallo, salsa)
          Lunch: The end of the jambalaya, with a big green salad tossed in olive oil
          Snack: Carrots & hummus
          Dinner: Big ass salad with guac, dark chocolate

          Exercise: Walked for 45 minutes, but never got around to the strength training. I went inside and promptly sat on the couch and then got distracted by our baby kicking me. I love that feeling. <3
