  • Why? Play is an important part of primal living. Other than the chugging contests, it all sounds pretty okay to me.

    • Think about how this would have played out pre-weight loss, pre-training sessions. That will cheer you up!

      • Siobhan: I actually shudder to think...

        During the chicken fighting I remember thinking that I was putting my core muscles to good practical use! It was really a lot of fun! And worth the minor excruciating muscle pain! SWMBO was not really very sympathetic however. Oh well...

        • Minor excruciating muscle pain? Is that an oxymoron?

          You know what? You had to do it. You wouldn't be you if you didn't.

          • Well I'm as big as an ox and can act like a moron for sure! ;-)

            But I am getting smaller.

            I was pleased to learn that everybody involved in the tipsy chicken fighting woke up the next morning stiff and sore. I was the oldest in the bunch by nearly 2 decades, so I guess that's not soo bad!

            The soreness has all but passed. Tonight I have training again and I am ashamed to say that I really haven't been doing my daily walks (my "homework") because it's just been too freak'n hot and muggy :-P

            Last night SWMBO texted me to say she and Boy were meeting friends of ours for dinner at a nice seafood place. I managed to navigate my way through the menu pretty Primally and the only real indiscretion was a small ice-cream cone at the end of the meal. It was a nice evening with good friends. Nice.

            • I have been an absolute lump during this heat wave and can't really even think about doing anything. Even something like going to the beach and having a dip in the nice cool ocean, which I understand is currently quite a nice temperature. Must work on that.

              I have fond memories of a seafood place I used to go to years ago with DH of blessed memory. They served the most delicious sourdough bread! I wonder if it would tempt me now or if I could pass it by without a qualm? I'll never find out since it is in southern California.

              • Double spammers!! I'm thankful we have central air. Last summer the unit needed more coolant and it was miserable. We even have the generator connected to them in case the power goes out.

                • We are fortunate in that there are a lot of good seafood places around here. It's funny because though we're right on Long Island Sound, relatively little of the seafood served here is from local waters, it's too polluted. :-( We do eat local lobster (at our peril) but the good stuff comes from Maine or Boston, clams from Rhode Island, shrimp from the Gulf and most everything else from Ipswich or Chesapeake Bay area.

                  Still it's nice, eating Seafood by the Sea and to heck with the details. I do like the fact that much of the seafood is wild caught. Clams on the half shell (raw) are only 7 calories each so I can eat a dozen and then have a big salad and it's a nice light meal.

                  Last night I worked out in the heat, there's no air conditioning at his place, besides we did a bunch of stuff outside anyway. I soldiered on through, did pretty well too! I think working out in this heat and humidity qualifies me for that Presidential Physical Fitness Award that I didn't get in 1968 when I was in the third grade!

                  • I didn't get it either, David, being the contrary brat I was I refused to participate as I thought it was ridiculous. I was not an attractive kid. But you definitely deserve an award!

                    • Yeah it was the pull-ups and the 500 yard run that killed me, you had to do it under a certain time and I couldn't. :-(

                      I don't really remember being given a choice, we all just did it but only a few got the medal. I remember being very jealous.

                      • Actually we probably weren't given a choice, but I was even more contrary at that young age. I remember seeing the first group of my schoolmates finishing, and a few of them had really pushed themselves too hard and were vomiting and in distress. No way was I going to do that to myself. Now that I think of it, I am annoyed that fitness was presented to us in such a way.

                        • I agree, the peer pressure was pretty intense. It was one of the first times I felt like a failure, and that feeling lasted a long time, some part of me still feels this way, part of my lifelong issues with my weight, no doubt. I am enjoying getting fit now, in my fifties and having my formerly fit and now fat friends scratch their heads in wonder. It's not where you start, but where you finish, I suppose!

                          • I am impressed with how well you are doing David! It definitely is how you finish that counts!! You have come a long way and I am so glad those old friends are wondering what is going on - maybe some of them will even be curious enough to ask and change their lives.

                            • This is totally a different subject, but your comment reminds of me a lifelong issue for me, which is that I do and always have looked quite a bit younger than I am. When I was 16 I looked like I was 12. When I was 25 I looked like a teenager. It wasn't fun and I was teased unmercifully and usually in a rather mean-spirited way. But now...a few years ago when I was in my late forties a friend visited with her two daughters, both in their early twenties. A waitress mistook me for their sister. They compounded the situation by chiming in and saying they had noticed that I looked like them and they were making me their honorary sister. I thought the top of my friend's head was going to blow off. She was one of the worst at teasing me when we were younger.

                              • I always looked younger than my years up until about 5 years ago when my hair started going grey. I had always been blonde, as a child I was a toe-head. It became more Ash-blond as I got older. With the grey mixed in my kids described my hair as colorless or beige. Lol.

                                In fact it is going silver, which I do not mind at all. But I have noticed that people are more aware of my age. However, since losing weight and becoming more fit, I have been told that I look younger. Looking younger is not really a goal for me. Looking healthy is.

                                But so far nobody had told me I look like my son's brother!
