  • We went to Portland, yesterday. Tried the Paleo food cart there, at Alberta & 15th... Cultured Caveman.

    Fabulous food. We had the bone broth, chili, and fries. Also had the bacon-wrapped, almond-stuffed dates. Good coffee, too.

    • Took my dose of MCT oil last night... had a little bit of flushing an hour later, due to increased metabolic action? It wasn't enough to mess up my night's sleep, so no worries.

      Deep into the depths of January -- it's the busiest time where I work. Plus, since we are slammed, I work everyday, altered hours, so I'm driving it. I feel like all I'm doing is eating, sleeping, driving, & working.

      • I think I'm done with the gimmicks. The oil shots aren't really helping, yeah, my appetite is really low, but I think that's not good, as I'm not eating enough, and I'm gaining again.

        Exercise, eating right, getting enough rest, that's my plan.

        • I'm with you on that. Back to basics for both of us.

          • Reading your journal makes me want to move to the Pacific Northwest. (You are thinking, NOOOooooo, we have enough people already....) But it will be a long time before we have a caveman cart in Maine. Odd, that. Mark is originally from Maine, and we have tons of local farmers and cows and sheep and goats. This should be a paleo outpost!

            • There should be a paleo outpost! I agree!

              We happily scored some fabulous small pot roasts, for some reason labeled "Soup Bones" at the Oly Co Op. I've got them in the crockpot with mirepoixe, chipolte powder, and a cinnamon stick, with red wine (Trader Joe's Red wine in a box) as the liquid. It smells divine. I believe dinner is calling now...

              • I still need to get to that co-op and check it out.

                • Good luck going back to basics. I had to do that recently too, all the numbers were stressing me out.
                  I am really listening to my body and just eating what I need and the scales are moving down consistently.
                  Good luck

                  • Well, I've survived a week of salmonella... that was fun (NOT!). Back to almost normal again.

                    My ND is having a hormone panel, lipid panel, and a micronutrient panel run for me. Hopefully, first thing we'll be able to do is fix my broken thermostat. Then, perhaps, with some better sleep, I'll be more likely to drop some fat poundage.

                    I'll be gone for a bit over a week -- my husband and I are going on a cruise! I expect to have a great time!

                    • Leaving today for our cruise... will be gone a week. Will eat as primally as I can, but not obsessively.

                      See ya!

                        • We had SUCH a good time! Some food shots:

                          And I think I might have eaten my weight in bacon... and, I've dropped a few pounds while I was on the cruise, too!

                            • I'm still a bit bloated... but my weight this morning was 234.4, which is one pound up from before the cruise.

                              Not bad. My tummy bloat is down, too... just wish my ankles would come back.

                              • Give it time, you'll get your ankles back!

                                Congratulations for gaining virtually no weight while on a cruise. Too many people use it as an excuse to pig out and you obviously didn't. Were you back in time for the glorious weekend we had in the Harbor? Did you miss the police standoff and shootout in Hoquiam??
