    I have fallen off the wagon in a big way. I am ready to climb aboard again. Primal eating is always in the back of my mind. Some things in life have been resolved. One contract not renewed but others have fallen into place. I continue daily walks with the dogs. My littlest dog, Buttons, was not doing so great and that added stress. He has bilateral luxating patella which basically means his kneecaps are out of joint more often than in! Have him on some meds but surgery, expensive surgery, is the cure. He is only 4.

    I am taking my family on an unplanned road trip today. Wherever the road takes us. I hope it refreshes me and gets my head clear so I can start over. I found it interesting that mark's posting was on road trips. I can do this!

      Just logging in shows you're on the right track. I don't check in here much anymore either. I quit logging food, but I'm managing to stick with PB and the weight keeps coming off (although more-slowly than when I was logging food). It's a good thing and slow weight loss is better anyway. I figure I'll eat this way forever, so what's the hurry to lose weight (so I can "go off the diet" and gain it all back?) I sure hope not. I hope this time I've found the secret. Yo-yo dieting is for the BIRDS!

      Hang in that Marcie -- it will come in time. Hope you had some fun on the trips!

        Trips have not happened yet but they will. Working on home renovation projects and I think I am making progress! I think I need to start journalling again to keep myself thinking. Loving summer and don't want to waste a moment of great weather. Barbeque all the time. Yum! No weight lost but no weight gained. I really need a chip/snack alternative. I found sweet potato chips but wonder how they rate. No pop at all since I have started. Small victory.

          No pop at all is a great victory. I was a diet Coke addict and gave it up. Sometimes I crave a little "sparkle" or something and drink some sparkling water. Most times it's water/lemon.

          I was getting antsy about weight loss (none in 2 weeks) and was thinking about logging food again -- but before I did -- it happened. I dropped a lb. Good deal. I keep winging it without logging food and see how that goes too.

          Something about the winter makes me "diet better" than during the summer. Although my garden veggies are very tasty and I've been eating squash, zucchini, tomatoes -- a lot! My 84 year old father has lost 13 lbs. primal! He has heart trouble, walks with a cane and I'm hoping the weight loss will make him feel better -- never mind how much more healthy it is for him.

          Well hang in there Marcie -- I'll check with you again next time I fly through!

            I'm back. Just checked the date when I started and it was one year ago! A sign? I think so. I have kept a few good habits but the snacks took over again. I have prepped my food for tomorrow and spent the weekend smoking bison jerky. I need to get back on track and I missed the journaling. I will try to keep up with this process; my oldest son is now beginning to adjust his eating and weight training so there is some support. Here is to new beginnings!

              Wow am I tired! Exhausted almost. I'm sure it is my carb flu so I will tough it out as I know I will feel better soon. Good day (I think). Bacon is thawing for breakfast, I missed bacon and eggs. and my fried chicken wings with hot sauce.

                A little less tired today, but tired nonetheless. I want coconut shrimp but that requires shopping. Also want to make coconut oil since we have an awesome blender. O to get motivated to move. Tomorrow . Eating is ok, no carbs sneaking in. Planning needs to happen here but like I said before, maybe tomorrow.

                  I was attacked by a slice of pizza today! But I do feel a little less tired today. Going to make a good meal and enjoy. Perhaps get outside for a walk. Going to make an exercise plan this weekend. I am going to say goodbye to this weight!!!!!!

                    Coconut shrimp for supper, yum! not too keen on the sauces I tried. Lemon curd, yum, tart and tasty. Love finding recipes but I wish they would figure out carbs so I will have to figure it out myself (for next time of course). real food rocks, especially finding a seed in your dessert!

                      Having some tea with honey, a bit of a sore throat. Also ate a muffin today. It is hard when I am teaching a group and have to bring the muffins and coffee. Thank goodness that was only this week! Anxious to try ground chicken pizza. No one really likes the lemon curd but me so guess who will be eating it, thank goodness I didn't do the full recipe!! Going to search the web for a recipe decoder so I will know how many carbs I'm actually consuming.

                        Up early and took the dogs out for a long walk on a back road. Still lots of snow but they sure loved it. Having coffee and making bacon. I think I will take my youngest to a movie tonight; I will have some popcorn but maybe bring some bison jerky to keep me happy. Do some yard work today and take a trip to the dump. Try to be outdoors this weekend and keep moving.

                          Made the philly cheesesteak posted on today's daily apple blog. Soooooo good but rich and filling. 4 servings is an overstatement, we have leftovers for tomorrow, probably combine it into a salad. Took forever to prepare. Didn't have lunch and didn't starve, getting back to the old ways. If I lose weight this way then just keep it coming!!!

                          Heard a radio talk show against paleo, but it wasnt really harsh against paleo, more about evolution. Let her talk, I'll read another success story and form my own opinion. Movie night is moved to tomorrow. Life is good!

                            Went to the movie, ate popcorn. An ok day food wise, travelling always messes with food choices. Having chicken crust pizza then off to bed. Drinking tea today because battling chest cold. bought kettle bells and some weights. Let the training begin.

                              We did our first workout yesterday. Pushups and squats yes - PLANKING, I am not built for planking! My 10 year old knew what it was though, his teacher has the class do them regularly- isn't that amazing! My oldest told me not to overdo the squats but I barely even feel it so I'll push myself more next time. Today was a walk with the dogs and my grandson in puddles.

                              i keep on trying new recipes and tonight was cheeseburger in a bowl. The cold is moving to my head and I'm sneezing lots but very little chest congestion. Lets hope this moves on soon. Trip to the vet with the cat for a wounded paw, but he is fine. My vet is awesome, they didn't charge for the visit, just checked him over. Have to try and keep him indoors but he is an outdoor man and won't use a litterbox (do you blame him - yuck). Bought myself a mothers day gift today - told the kids I'm good in that department - my boys aren't overly creative with gifting. May whip up some cream and have it with strawberries.
