      • Well, I am MUCH better today, nothing like a day flat on your back in bed and then a visit to the Chiropractor to set it all to rights. Feel like a new person again today ... going to keep going with the stretches that I have been slacking on lately. They really helped to ease the spasm and I remembered all over again how helpful they were when my back was troubling me a lot.

        So back to school today. The kids actually did school yesterday though without mommy helping them stay focused they did take pretty much all day. We went for a nice 30 minute walk yesterday when we got back from the chiropractor because I was feeling so much better and we wanted to enjoy the gorgeous weather! It has been feeling like spring the last few days - fantastic for getting outside and getting some fresh air and exercise.

        Fasting until lunch when i am planning on having cauliflower fried rice ... DD will be thrilled too, DS won't be... but then I am never surprised when he doesn't like the food I make.

        • What else is for lunch? Mmm... cauliflower rice is one of my faves!

          • Reminds me to pick up a cauliflower. Time for mashed 'potatoes' and another steak. Nothing picks me up like steak. Maybe I was a cow in another life.

              • I had mashed cauliflower for lunch and thought of you! Maybe will fry up the rest of it, that is one of my favorite meals.

                • Hi all, I am doing ok, back is a thing of the past for now. Been having computer trouble - I have a 'new' CPU on the way. This one is over 7 years old and really is ancient! It even has a grey beard like Noah

                  I have, as a result, not been plugging in my eating to fitday and actually have been having quite the little chocolate binge again (not doing well with my eating at all - no grains, but too much and higher carbs)

                  I have been struggling with stress over buying a place ... trying to keep my perspective but it is tough some days. The constant weighing of alternatives and trying to decide which negatives are less of an issue than others, which positives outweigh others, and how on earth we are going to afford it and still look after my folks who are requiring financial help pretty regularly... that just eats into any attempt to save up a down payment too. Trying to let it go for a few days and get my head straight again. Have bounced back to my default weight - 192lbs. Not at all surprised there! I am so tired of the yo-yo but I know that it is my own fault. Just got to 'grow up' I know - but not that easy to do.

                  • Computer troubles continue ... crazy busy looking for houses and trying to do everything else. Going to be getting a 'new' computer soon, hopefully that will make it easier to get on here and get back into the journalling and also the tracking of intake etc. Haven't forgotten about you all, I really miss reading everyone's journals but hopefully not too much longer until I am up and running again.

                    • I need to get someone to help me set up the 'new' computer for me! PRetty tech challenged I am afraid. But aside from that - I have gained back some pounds lately (not surprised) and am now facing having to lose it all again. I am seriously thinking about signing up for the e-mail support to help me over this million mile plateau I have been on for months and months! On the 11th Feb I will have been primal for a year. Incredible to think how different our eating is now ... I really think I could do with some help on getting moving on weight loss again. What do you guys think? If anyone is reading this still - it has been rather quiet on my part lately. Life is crazy ...

                      Very stressful times at the moment. My folks van engine blew up yesterday and so we are scrambling to try and help them figure out what to do, and since the Rand Dollar exchange rate is about 1:9 they are in dire need of financial help too, groceries and a vehicle so they can keep on living until we can move them (with what money?!) out here into the house we are going to buy (with what!?) that will accomodate us all! Trying not to get all wound up and actually slept amazingly well last night, despite the upheavals going on. I was wiped out since the night before DS had a number of nightmares and I was up on and off through the early hours of the morning...

                      I wonder if I am fighting off a cold or flu - just not feeling quite myself. Super thirsty today - drank loads of water. My tea just wasn't as nice as it usually is ... maybe a little touch of carb flu after eating a lot more carbs than I am used to lately? Really tired at the moment... Going to try and be more intentional tomorrow with what goes in as fuel. Not feeling too great as I am back up at 195lbs again. I no longer have as many fat clothes because I got rid of a number of pants that were way too big ... in a way this is good. Better to be uncomfortable and in the real world .... not sliding into the next size up and pretending that all is well. I am just so tired and frazzled lately that it is hard to keep my focus and remember that chocolate does not provide the energy I need and that eating too much food does not make anything better. So hard to keep a grip on those things when everything is out of control and stressful. Deep breath and I will just keep on trying...

                      • You know, it is so good to read some journals this evening! It is always so encouraging to hear other people's triumphs and trials ... it is easy to feel as though you are alone in your journey and that everyone else is doing just fine.

                        I am needing to put an end to my wallowing in chocolate bingeing and overeating! Maybe tomorrow will be a good day to get my butt back in gear and start watching my intake and loading up on veggies. I don't have any 'bad' chocolate in the cupboard at the moment so it is a good time to start up again. The old computer is limping along again and hopefully will continue to do so until I can figure out the new one.... I have to figure out how to get the DVD and CD drives moved from the old CPU to the new one ... and then I need to figure out how to reload all the programs that I use .... One step at a time I guess.

                        • It is good to see you back on the boards, Coll. I'm sorry for all the stresses. Seems like sometimes life just throws you one thing after another, after another.
                          And another.

                          Hang in there, do what you can, and keep looking forward.

                          And yes, today is a great day to get back in gear. Come back on and let us know how you are going to do it. (Then we can SPLAT you if you don't. )

                          • Well, it seems I typed a whole post on here and then lost it - probably a good thing in a way. Now you don't get all the wingeing and whining and I can just give you all the low down on today.

                            I IF'ed until lunch time, had a small bowl of leftover beef stroganoff and a boat load of raw veggies dipped in greek yoghurt dip. Later I had a slice of primal chocolate cake (it was DH's birthday a couple days ago - not good!) and that then moved on to a chunk of 60% chocolate (estimate about 6 - 8 pieces. Again not good, but better than a whole bar of milk chocolate!!) I had lots of water to drink (good) kept my tea to 2 cups (good). Dinner was a bratwurst, half an artichoke dipped in garlic butter and a whole sweetpotato baked and very yummy (too many carbs - but they were a healthier source even if the total was way high!) Will try again tomorrow to dump the carb loading that I am doing at the moment. I think part of my problem is that I am constantly tired at the moment - I think it is stress related as I am sleeping reasonably well .... Here's to tomorrow and trying again....

                            • I often think when I read over my journal, "Who is this person? Did I really write this?" Because it seems like either everything is all perfect or it's all crap. In fact it is all pretty much in between, but that stuff is boring to write about. And I filter things pretty thoroughly also.

                              Those nasty carbs don't just creep up, they whomp you over the head!

                              • You are so right about the carbs! There are no half measures with them in my book! EIther I have waaaaayyyyy too much or I have hardly any - no middle ground. And if I can keep them low I don't want them either which of course is half the battle anyway. It is all in my head - guess I have a sick head.

                                So, today I am hoping to drink mostly herbal teas this morning and then have a lot of veg at lunch with maybe an egg and leftover sausage. Going to try to drink a lot today - I did well with that yesterday too. Something didn't agree with me yesterday - felt very bloated and gassy last night. I think my tummy could be very grateful for a respite. Hoping to work on my mocassins today - I got part way with the trial pair and realised that my pattern needed some serious tweaking, and then everything got busy and crazy stressful. I have (hopefully!) this weekend to get going with them again and who knows, maybe even get them finished! I REALLY need them .... but no-one else is going to make them for me. Not having to do school should leave me with plenty energy to get these going

                                I may do salmon for dinner - on the grill, tastes so good... Oh well, time to get going with my day, all the best to all of us...
