    • Hi, CM. I hope you get something useful out of it.

      Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
      Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

        Sleep: 8 hours

        Weight: 154.4

        Food
        Vitamins: check
        Breakfast: Greek yogurt with slivered almonds, blueberries and seeds
        Lunch: Primal pizza with ham and green peppers and onions.
        Supper: Didn't feel like eating badly enough to bother cooking. And hubby has an upset stomach, so no need.
        Snacks: 2 Brazil nuts. A few black olives al forno

        Exercise: Dancing. Hard.

        Activities: Small chores, dishwasher, cooking, 1 loads laundry, gardening, hand dishes

        Comments: Got a bit of an allergic reaction to lunch. Must be the coconut flour and milk, seeing as this isn't the first time. *sigh* This is going to complicate life. And then I felt a little queasy too. Is that part of the reaction, or am I coming down with whatever hubby has?

          • Judg, I've been measuring my weight by ounces lately too.

If something was already working keep doing it right through a plateau... you'll come off eventually but your body needs the plateau time to prioritize the energy it's being provided and do some much needed healing along the way. Hope you're doing well!
              This is something I really didn't fully accept until I started working on health on here with you guys. I think reading the variations in everyone's path really does confirm that you can always do your best, but you can't really predict what you're body wants to do - or at least the rate that IT wants things to happen.

              • All of the ounces add up If you gained weight in .1 you would count that too wouldn't you? So the opposite "weigh" should be a good thing YAY for ounces!

                • Yup, a few more ounces off this morning too. It's a cool day, so I pulled a cute little long-sleeved blouse out of my reward drawer. It is a fitted blouse, and the buttons were straining when I bought it (on special, of course). It now fits like a glove and I feel like a million bucks.

                  Or I would, if I didn't have a sharp pain in my gut. All I've had today is a cup of black coffee, and it started hurting after that. Seeing as I had a bit of a rash on the inside of my wrists, I took an allergy pill, and decided not to eat until I feel better. Which is happening, thank goodness. Apart from that, I feel great, which is kind of weird. I'm foregoing exercise for the time being too, until I figure out what's going on.

But I'm going to start getting back to it now. Like in a few minutes, LOL! Dancing today; it's raining out.
                    had to edit my lost post - it was 11 miles, not 21. But still - I did overdo it a bit. The bike trip was a spur of the moment thing, and was a bigger trek than I had anticipated. Overall I enjoyed it though --- a few days of taking it easy seemed to fix me up agian! Dancing sounds so fun!

                    Look at you go, girl!!!! Those numbers just keep getting smaller and smaller!

                    Weird thing for me........ I keep having people ask me if I'm losing weight - but the number on the scale isn't moving. I'm still wearing the same size pants too. Don't know what to think of it. I'm going to read up on whole30 today - I think I'm going to give it a shot. Jenn has me inspired! I've been cheating on snickerdoodles all weekend! Raw dough or the cooked ones - way too many! The flour is going to do bad things to my insides!

                    • Ah, you must be firming up. All that exercise must be having an effect.

                      Snickerdoodles! Ouch!

                      • Well, my tummy got better and I got very hungry. Still have no idea what all that was about. Big day tomorrow. Car Salesman Son is moving out, and we have to go get Translator Son to help him with the heavy lifting. I will be staying with DIL to help out with three little boys. So I'm off to bed early. But not before reporting:

                        Health journal June 4, 2012

                        Sleep: 7 hours or less

                        Weight: 153.4 Another new low.

                        Food
                        Vitamins: forgot
                        Breakfast: nope, stomach upset
                        Lunch: Banana and a few bites of mango
                        Supper: Zwiebelkuchen and deluxe coleslaw with EVOO mayo
                        Snacks: 2 cookies, a few pork rinds.

                        Exercise: nope

                        Activities: Small chores, hand dishes, cooking, 2 loads laundry, more cooking, finances

                        Comments: I really wasn't too thrilled with the taste of EVOO mayo. This after telling somebody here a few days ago that it was very good. Hmm. I thought I had made it before and liked it. My memory is playing tricks on me. But now I'm at a bit of a loss. What will I do for mayo? I don't need a lot, but how do you make a decent coleslaw without it? I never did like the sugary dressings, and they definitely aren't too primal.

                        • I've got ribs with a dry rub on them in the crockpot. I've stuck them in the fridge for the night, and in the morning I'll turn them on low. I'll just have to make a salad or something come evening. Good for a busy day.

                          I've been consciously adding a bit of starch to my diet again on a daily basis, and it seems to be helping. My skin is feeling very smooth again (it hadn't gotten bad, but had lost the wow factor) and the weight is also coming off. This is totally counter-intuitive, but I won't exactly complain. It's not like it's a hardship or anything. Today was a banana and those little cookies (which I made smaller this time).

                            • I know, right? I made them with butter instead of shortening, and cut down a touch on the sugar - but STILL! all that flour and sugar did a number on my fibro pain. Stupid choices!!! Hence the whole30! Time to get back to basics here!
