  • Yep, it cuts down on both. Amazing how much time and wine go by when I sit in front of the screen mindlessly clicking between different sites. I'm trying not to drink anything at the computer, even tea or water. I'm trying to just do what I do and keep it as short as possible.

    Here at work. Ate a big salad and a piece of ham. Ran around emptying the recycling, lots of carrying but not really heavy stuff.

    • Well. My department is decimated by illness and injury. There are 9 of us. Six are down with the sick or back injuries. Two are away on family emergencies. That leaves...me...and believe me, I don't have any God complex or think I'm indispensable or that anyone will remember I stepped up to help out when times were tough. I'm really annoyed. I am, of course, getting paid for my time. Still, I have no desire to work 5 12-hour shifts this week. And on top of that, to have to stay late because my relief needs a 'light assignment' - meaning that someone else has to work a heavy assignment - yeah, I'm annoyed. Okay, enough of that.

      Just had a large plate of carnitas with all of the fixings and thought about all the people here who have also enjoyed carnitas this past week. I have one more meal left, and then I will give that recipe a rest. Three huge pork butts in two weeks is enough for any one person! Also had a plain leafy green salad, a tapioca bread all crisped up in the oven, a clementine, and am now tucking into a cup of turmeric tea.

      Did an unusual thing this morning. Left work and went to the pool. Swam for only 10 minutes - a class was going to start - and went in the sauna. Good long hot shower and then home. You might think I would be very tired and relaxed, but actually I was all energized. Slept for 4 1/2 hours.

      • Yipes, 4 1/2 hours' sleep!! Times like those are when most of my daily calories start coming from chocolate- albeit, unsweetened Ghirardelli :P
        The swim sounds wonderful- I feel that I often miss out, especially on nature and exercise, because I only have a little bit of time, but then I waste the little bit of time on the computer anyway.
        If you have a few minutes- please take a look at my story, in my journal

        • Yah, if I spent 1/8 of the time exercising that I do on the computer, I'd be a female Mark Sisson.

          Had a major fail this evening. Ate a large peanut butter cookie! I chose the PB because it has a lot less flour than the other cookies. Well, it's over and I'll move past it.

          • Hmm. Son #2 just made a pan of peanut butter squares, which he had at a friend's house and loved (even asked the mom for the recipe). PB, butter, graham cracker crumbs, confectioners sugar, and topped with a layer of dark chocolate. Presently chilling in the fridge. He really wants us to try a bit...I'm deliberating on a sliver. A little leery about the graham cracker part.

            Really sucks about your work colleagues being out of commission. It's bad enough in a large facility, but is much worse when there are so few of you to begin with. Don't wear yourself out!

                • Just listened to Mark's interview with the Fat-Burning Guy. Very interesting. He always has something different to say. One thing that really resounded was that paleo/primal is and always will be a grassroots movement. The leaders such as himself are not going to change the government or laws. The change is going to come from introducing people to the movement and constant new growth. So right.

                      I managed to stick to a tiny bit. Unfortunately, it's giving me ideas about dark chocolate almond butter cups...

                      • You are strong. The sweet siren song of the yummy cups cannot sway you!

                        It was supposed to snow a lot tonight. It snowed a bit, but then it stopped and now the snow is gone. I don't know where it went because it is quite cold and not windy. The Case of the Disappearing Snow. Of course maybe it is just waiting for me get off work to unleash its fury. It doesn't really matter to me with my snappy snow tires, but of course other people have the nasty habit of getting in accidents and blocking the road, which is a real problem when there is only one road.

                        Good night food-wise. I had brussels sprouts, broccoli, and ham. Kombucha. I have some smoked salmon for later.

                        • Well, the snowstorm was a bust. It went offshore and we just got a dusting. I'm not heartbroken. I woke up to blazing blue skies with wispy white clouds (after I removed my sleeping masks).

                          A rather strange sight is greeting me in the mirror. Tufts of hair stick out on my temples on each side. It is becoming more apparent as it grows longer; currently there is a lot of hair about 1 1/2 inches long. I hope it is something that is really only noticeable to me, but I am smoothing it down rather more often that I used to. I am going to try to stay strong and stop coloring my hair. I think I can really do it this time. From the growth that I have now, it appears to be completely gray with a few silver strands.

                          Mark's posts are co-sleeping have me appreciating my cats more and more. They are really perfect sleeping partners. They don't disturb me at all but they are very comforting. I can put my hand out anytime and find warm fur that starts purring. You can't put that in a box and sell it.

                          • Ah, the beauty of a primal kitchen. Woke up hungry...didn't know what I wanted to eat. Got a large bowl and in went salad greens, broccoli slaw, red peppers, avocado, smoked salmon, EVOO, BV, lemon juice, sour cream, chives. Ate it with my fingers. (Maybe TMI there) Then strawberries with heavy cream. Got those endorphins flowing for sure, have that kind of high feeling I often get after a really good meal. Off to work now.

                            • SPLAT!!!!

                              That is me...falling off the wagon and getting run over by the wheels. Last night it was a PB cookie, tonight it was a brownie with chocolate peppermint icing. Holy moly. What happened to my primal high? Got smooshed by sugar cravings, that's what! Okay, time to get it together. Luckily this is my last night of work until Saturday and I will be away from this temptation. No will power and overtired.
