    Sunday breakfast: Buckwheat waffles, fried eggs, and bacon, with real maple syrup. This is my splurge day, as we are having a family get-together. Yup, a whole day of it.

    I imagine I might have a "taste" of a few things, but I won't eat much of any one thing, as that's my usual pattern at these things.

      I was just at the Lacey Costco and they have three 8oz Kerrygold butter for 6.99. Better than Trader Joe's? They also now carry big containers of Nutivia coconut oil.

        Yes... it is cheaper than TJ's price ($7 vs $9)... but I have so much butter in the fridge!!

        We got two of the Nutiva Coconut Oils, too.

          I thought about getting the Kerrygold then I remembered the 20plus pounds in the freezer!!

                Tried for more/better sleep last night... but forgot to use my blue-light-blocking glasses. Do they make a difference? Well, according to my fitbit, I got 9 hours of sleep - but my night was full of pink lines! (Pink lines denote movement - tossing and turning) When I've used my glasses, I have a lot fewer pink lines, and usually 2 or 3 hours of no movement at all, in a stretch.

                Got up this morning and went for a walk! Woo hoo! morning walk, over the bridges (2.5 miles), with bright morning sunshine in my eyes... supposed to help with all sorts of things.

                Right now, I'm enjoying a cup of bone broth... Wish my bone broth would turn out as good as what I hear. I use beef marrow bones, roast them in the oven, then cover them with filtered water and a tbls of either red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar (whichever one I grabbed. I've tried it with both), bring to a boil, then simmer on low in the crock pot for days. I think I started this batch on saturday. Today I strained it, and cleaned off the bones, then put it all back in to simmer longer. The bones are not getting "soft", and when I refrigerate the broth, it does not get "jelly". My bones had quite a bit of stuff on them, shreds of meat/some tendony like stuff, plus all the wonderful marrow (I've saved all that, and am using it in cooking).

                I keep telling myself that I'm healing - that's why I'm not losing weight. I'm healing. I still have plenty of signs of systemic inflammation, so I'm not there yet. And, I really need to ditch the dairy, but I LOVE grass-fed whipping cream, and raw sheep's milk blue cheese (OMG), and the organic, full-fat kefir yogurt stuff I found (OMG), and then my husband will fry up some grass-fed cheddar in bacon grease.

                I usually have ONE item from the above list in a day. Except yesterday, we did have a chunk of baked brie. no pastry, just the brie, with walnuts, currants, and some maple syrup on it. With a sliced apple. It was yummy. I'm sure that it will take awhile to work that one out of my system.

                  Got my 90-day Primal Journal. Got today's weight and measurements.

                  Wow, he offers space for a LOT of measurements - not just body, but for everything. Very clinical. I feel bad skipping a lot of it, but I'm not doing blood tests (for example) right now. I should wander down to the fire department and let some hot guy measure my blood pressure, one of these days.

                  I keep doing things now that I couldn't do before, and think "I should be making note of this"... like on our bike rides, I can ride up slopes much easier, our rides are getting a lot faster, etc. My butt hurts less. My balance/agility is improving, too.

                    The presence of a hot firefighter might create some unreliable blood pressure results.

                    • Good job on reminding yourself that you are healing. I think we forget that too often.

                        Sigh.

                        and I'm not feeling well, besides. Granted, I feel not as not well as in previous years at this time, but that change of season/weather change/autumnal allergy thing seems to be creeping up on me.

                        • Hi RaeVynn...I just read through your primal journal and noticed your struggles with weight loss. It appears to me that you are consuming too many calories. I know that in Paleo our focus is not supposed to be on calories but on the content of our diet. However based on my experience you need to do both. Have you calculated your BMR and are you staying under this in your daily net calorie intake (net calories are calories consumed minus activity calories burned)? Also, are you completely gluten free? Most importantly I suggest doing the Whole30 program as this will definitely get you going in the right direction. Wishing you the very best!

                            I have a headache today. Oiy vey. It feels like a hangover/dehydration headache, but I have no idea why I would have one... I had water before bed, more at 6am, and I slept really well.

                            We had chicken for dinner. Haven't had chicken for awhile. Hmm.

                            • 229.3 (there was a bump in between weighings)

                              Had dinner at Red Robin last night... burger wrapped in lettuce, with steamed broccoli on the side. It was really good. I should have remembered to have them hold the mayo.

                              Floor manager came over,... turns out, he's done Paleo! He said he followed Robb Wolf for 7 months, lost 40 lbs, and really loved it, but couldn't eat at work. He was very friendly and nice.

                              Got our new scale - the Aria... it not only weighs me, it tells me how much of my mass is fat %. Um, wow. I'm hoping this will help to motivate me to do more kettlebell workouts!
