    Quelsen, did the extra inch stay gone once you warmed up again?
    no no, i miscommunicated, this is what happened 6 weeks after the hour long 32f bath. the zeltiq people say it takes up to 4 months for the adipose tissue to leave.

    • My "reply with quote" function doesn't seem to be working today. (?)

      Thanks for the expressions of concern for the Wolf Cub. He is getting around today but not taking any more steps than he needs to. I know they do have little doggie booties but I always thought those were for silly little purse pooch kind of dogs. I have a "real" dog. He climbs mountains with me and doesn't need booties. But it seems that city walking is more dangerous than trail hiking for the paws.

      Hi Peril, What is freaking people out about you in short sleeves. Oh, yeah, that right, it's winter where you are. I have found I have become much more tolerant of extremes of temperature both directions since going Primal.
      And you are far too adorable to be a curmudgeon.

      Thinking back on yesterday, we also went through a couple of construction zones, a big area where they are in the process of taking the electrical wires off of poles and putting them underground and a big public park improvement project down by the harbor. We walked across several stretches of fresh asphalt and some of that "cold patch" temporary asphalt stuff they use when they are coming back the next day. All of that in the very hot July-in-Socal sun could also start to stick to the underside of doggie paws.

      Hi Peril. Why is seeing you i short sleeves freaking people out? Oh, yeah, that right, it's wintertime where you are. (I though it was because your biceps were bulging impressively.) I have found I am much more tolerant of temperature extremes, both ways, since going Primal.
      And you are fat too adorable to ever be a curmudgeon. Just wouldn't work.

      • Also the edit function seems to be not working today. (Is this just me?) Sorry for the double paragraph above.

        So, Honey Badger, these are die-offs that happen six weeks after your ice baths? Hmmm. A charley horse is just a really bad muscle cramp. The muscle tightening up like that could cause everything to contract in. (e.g. if I flex my calf it is an inch smaller than when relaxed) Did you measure while the cramping was going on?

        • The first course this evening is a cucumber salad (generous neighbors again). Thinly sliced cucumbers tossed with a jar of mixed olive tapenade and some sun dried tomatoes with a sprinkly of feta on top.



          The second course is leftover stew made a whole lot yummier by the bone broth and coconut cream base the basic meat and veggies are swimming in.



          Then there is peach/banana Fro-Co-Yo. I just invented this. Its a vitamix blend of fruit plus cultured coconut milk. Very tasty. The peaches are also courtesy of my wonderful neighbors.

          • looks good.

            yesterday was a crazy-busy day. Got up and tidied the house. Then went to work from 1-5 wherein we started working together to sequence classes. We got one of three sequenced. That's normal, btw. I totally only expected to get one sequenced. Today we're doing the second one, and then two of us are meeting another time to do the third.

            After that, I went straight to derby to NSO (non-skating official). It was an *awesome* bout. I can't even describe how great it was, it was that great. Close bout the whole game (usually within 12 points of each other), and the "underdogs" won the bout! I was so psyched. It was a blast.

            I tried to go to the after party, but man, I suck at after parties. I'm not really good friends with anyone. I like them all a lot, and it's fun to talk, but I just feel socially awkward. I was also tired and knew that I would be getting up this AM to do more house-tidying and then working again this afternoon.

            DH and I then have a date -- we're going to see batman. We're going to the 3:30 show, and then dinner afterwards. I think the show ends at nearly 6:30, so it's likely that DS will be asleep when we get back, which means grown up time. yay.

            I think i might splurge and go for the mexican instead of the thai. We'll see how I feel when we get to it.

            All in all, life is good.

                  Welcome to the Birdnest.
                  Thank you. Wow. That is a lot of reading. If there are any questions I could answer, let me know.
                  I love that gals over 50 thread, away from all the petty stuff that sometimes goes on on the forum.

                    Some people get the idea that Primal is all about the big hunks of bloody red meat all the time. I feel like I am descended from coastal Groks that thrived on seafood and shellfish too. Sure, meat is good but it's not the only protein around.
                    Interesting you should mention that. I have several Paleo leaning friends who have given up meat and poultry and gone strictly with fish. They follow all the other Paleo trends - no gluten, legumes, trans-fats, sugar and very little dairy - but simply decided they couldn't be a party to killing the animals for food. By the way I love your "Next Big Adventure Thread" especially the food photos - yum!

                      Hi canuck, welcome to the Birdnest. I've been enjoying your posts (especially the shirtless pics ) and you have been making some great progress.

                      My motivations for eating a lot of seafood don't have to do with having any problem about being at the top of the food chain. I just love seafood and feel good when I eat it. I sometimes feel rather heavy when I eat a big hunk o' cow.

                          Thank you, Gadsie. I wasn't really making a secret of it. Kind of announced it here and on the She Groks Only thread.

                          • I find that I have to eat less beef when I eat beef.

                            Ok, that makes no sense. Hold on, let me see if I can get my head around it (my head is still full of Batman).

                            I find that when I eat chicken or fish, I can eat quite a lot and feel satisfied and light and happy. But I can only eat 1/3 of the amount of beef in a sitting to feel ok. And even less pork.

                            So, like, if i eat 10 oz chicken (say), then I can really only manage 5 oz of beef at a sitting, and honestly, only about 2.5 oz of pork. In fact, I basically just gave up pork altogether. Much nicer.

                            I'm not a huge fan of seafood, but I'm liking eating more fish. I could do ok on fish, eggs, and veg and fruit for sure.

                              I'm pretty much off of pork entirely except when I can find wild boar meat. For some reason, chicken is just not appealing these days either. So, that leaves me with red meat or seafood. If I had to give up one it would be the red meat. It's nice to have some variety so I try to change it up from day to day. If I eat big chunks of red meat several days in a row, I seem to feel sluggish.

                                If Mr. Onalark didn't love chicken so much, I'd happily abandon it. Occasionally roast chicken does hit the spot, but mostly I look at it and think, "I could be eating steak."

                                Pork's another matter. Bacon and sausage I eat about once a week. And I am fond of a properly seared pork loin (not pork tenderloin, though -- that's about as boring as chicken).

                                But yeah when I crave meat, it's usually red or seafood. If the menu says chicken, pork, lamb, steak, or shrimp, I know which options I'm automatically knocking off the list.
