      • So far I am meatless today. Breakfast was a banana and cashew butter. What can I say, it was what I wanted. Normally I wouldn't eat anything that carby for the first meal of the day, but it worked out okay. I was satisfied and didn't get hungry again for about 5 hours. I've just had a large bowl of leafy greens with scallops cooked in butter. Yeah, I know, I'm horribly deprived. Dinner is going to be haddock and more salad greens.

          Ah, scallops, one of the neatest gifts we were given.

          • You know, Finnish bears just seem cuter than our Maine bears. Why is that?

            Dinner was haddock and rice. I am cautiously proceeding with rice in my diet. It is so d@mn good!

            • Tip for Today

              I'm stealing Mark's tip from last week - the best exercise ever. Find some type of motion that you enjoy and want to do. You shouldn't have to make yourself do this - it should be a pleasure. It should not be so rigorous that you need to take rest days. (You probably should be doing this sort of exercise also, but that is a different subject.) The human body is meant to move. Dancing, walking, swimming, light yoga. All sorts of things. Just move. You will feel better for it.

                  • It's shedding season here at the Cat Corral. Massive grooming sessions are being held. Who would have thought that cats would patiently sit awaiting their turn? Enormous mounds of hair are being collected, swept up and bundled into trash bags. At least enough to make a whole 'nother cat!

                    Today is (gasp) warm and sunny. I went out in my heavy coat and nearly melted almost immediately. Some kind of high/low pressure system has pushed warm air to us, and it is most welcome! I was going to go swimming but switched to a walk instead to enjoy the outdoors and get some sunshine.

                    Realized I haven't eaten scrambled eggs in ages. I made a stellar helping and ate it with paleo bread. Delicious! I put a package of bacon and also ground beef in the freezer (my little tiny freezer - will probably take them to work.) So far not missing meat...but why would I with the fruit of the sea at my convenience?

                      • Still meatless. Having a lot of fun eating, though. When I got home from work this morning I had a banana-avocado smoothie, then this afternoon I had scrambled eggs with paleo bread. Also an orange. Feeling very good and not even too tired. Work again tonight, the clocks go forward! Hurray!

                        The farm where I buy my eggs was eggless yesterday. Boo. I can always get good pastured eggs at the food co-op but they are a lot more expensive. Does anyone else discard some of the whites or am I the only weirdo who does that? I end up with three yolks and maybe two egg whites. I throw out the ultra thick ropy bits.

                          This is an old one, but it bears repeating. Be sure you eat enough at meals. It is easy to cook up a big paleo feast, take a few bites and put your fork down. This can be a good thing, but not if you find yourself demolishing a bag of Dunkins three hours later. Learn to eat enough to be satisfied for 4-5 hours. If you are hungry before then, you need to adjust your macronutrients or your quantities. Reduce the amount of will power you will require, because you literally have only so much of it.
