    • I have been deliberately avoiding the news. Now I know why. This really pisses me off. I am sick of this.

I'm more determined than ever to buy a grass fed cow and raise my own produce now.

      • Got my paper done on Friday. Submitted it to the professors for one last review before I make it pretty and submit it for realz. I can't believe it's done!!! And a MONTH early! Can you believe it? The Queen of Procrastination got her thesis done a MONTH early!!

        Eating was off the hook this weekend. Just as suspected... I'm up 6 lbs. Damned wheat. Will probably work on NK again, but not today. Have white taters for lunch. Who knows, maybe it'll actually be ok to eat them since we can do sweet potatoes with minimal issues.

        Thinking about a modified 21 Day Sugar Detox. One that allows berries. But, berries throw off my NK unless I'm super careful, so I'm still up in the air about all this.

        Maybe with my new strength program I won't actually need NK and can just eat according to the Carbohydrate Curve. I guess, I'm looking for something a little easier. Back to basics, maybe. But, when I go back to basics, I allow things I shouldn't have - like sugar... lots and lots of sugar.

        Obviously, I'm still thinking on this. I'll definitely stick to Primal, but how "strict" I get with it will depend on my love for strawberries...

        • There is some balance required with "back to basics" or any particular diet-style that one adopts. I am finding that increasing starches is the best way for me to feel full and good overall. If I'm hungry, I try to eat something starchy. It overrides sugar cravings. Pebbles is focusing on making sure she gets enough protein & using amino acids ala. "The Diet Cure", along with NK (that's nutritional ketosis, right?). Your balance may be something else, but I bet you the thing that frees you from sugar cravings or overrides them is the answer!

            • I decided, after catching up on the NK thread that I'll go back. I haven't really given it a fair shot b/c I always find myself binging on some crap after about a month - consequently, after I relose all the weight I gained from the last binge... I have a birthday party for my wee girl at the end of the month, but that's my only real obstacle. I think I can bypass the cake if I have another option available - like fruit or something. It'll goof up the NK at that point, but it'll be easy to rebound from, I think. I don't experience the tremendous water weight gain from fruit that I get from wheat. Then again, I could find someplace that'll do a gluten free cake too... For now, I'll plan to make fruit kabobs.

              • Fruit is far better to binge on than cake! Do you have any thoughts about what trips you up after that month? Just the timing of life or some kind of stumbling block? You did so well with that 21-day detox!

                • It's a timing thing. This weekend was another sugar holiday with a birthday party for my Grandma thrown in. Easter lunch had ZERO gluten free options, with the exception of deviled eggs and fruit kabobs. Even the meat had gluten b/c they coated the baking bags with flour first... *sigh*

                  I just chose to make poor choices instead of sticking to it. As soon as I finished my paper, I began my binge - Easter candy shoveling commenced. LOTS of Easter candy. I think if I got back to NK and allow honey and maple syrup in recipes, I'll be ok. If things begin to get out of hand again, another detox might be in order. We'll see how I do this month.

                    • I've given up on NK for awhile. It doesn't seem to help me when I'm stressed and just want to say F it all. Lately, I've been incredibly stressed and not sure how I'm going to make it through things.

                      • I need to buy one of those little things of Carmex, heat it up in the microwave to melt it, then drain it out, clean the little glass/ceramic container and then replace the original contents with coconut oil. This would be used as needed for quick moisturizing needs. I got off my regime of using coconut oil daily (morning and night) and now I have some rough patches on my face - likely from eating poorly and lack of moisturizing. Or I could remove a stick of lip balm from the tube and replace it with coconut oil. Either method would work adequately, I think. hmmm... might have a marketable product here...

                          • If we were near each other, I would give you a Carmex jar. I have 4 here and one is almost empty.

                              • Coconut oil in a lip balm tube would melt in your pocket! The jar is a great idea though. I used very small tupperware containers (meant for salad dressing) for a little while, but I found sticking my fingers in the coconut oil left it smelling kind of weird. Guess I should wash my hands before applying?

                                I still used unscented Goldbond or Aveeno lotion. Coconut oil takes too long to sink in and I don't like having a greasy mouse at my computer!
