  • All his fingers and toes? I thought *I* was accident prone. Ok, So I don't think it's broken. The pain is subsiding sitting still, but still hurts to walk, and if I accidentally flex it bring me to tears. Hopefully just a fracture or a deep bruise. Still pisses me off! ROAR!

    So, I've been craving breakfast food like crazy these days. Today was up day. I had 2 eggs and an ounce of sausage this morning. Just now I had two eggs, 280 grams of potato (yeah, yeah, whatever) 88 grams of sausage and two bacon slices.

    It amazes me how when I'm only really eating once per day (not by choice, just how it's working out when I work) How much I can eat in one sitting. I used to be a "several small meals" type of person. Eat 5 bites and *BAM* full. I am happier, and more satisfied basically eating one big meal near the end of my up days. I'll have a little snack or a mini breakfast in the morning, plus milk and coffee. Worked out to be about 1500 calories for the day today. About 200 yesterday. Essentially, 900 calories per day over two days. That's a serious deficit, and here I feel like I just PIGGED. It's good tomorrow is down day. Going to be very busy.

    Taking some animals to a sale, then coming home and building a fence around my garden. I will NOT lose plants to those little rabbit bastards.

    • Goophers are out in force this year, burrowing everywhere and eating everything. They've killed 3 young trees we planted. So we've hired a premier gopher-killer and he's making progress.

      • I feel your pain. We have moles running rampant this year. Gr!

        Well, after my potato fest for two up days, I bounced between 278-280 for a couple days. this morning, there was a whoosh. Yesterday I was 277.8. This morning the scale said (about 8 times because I didnt believe it) 274.4. Over night.

        Here's my theory on whooshes. This has happened to me several times now, and it usually occurs a week or so after a bad day or a carb fest (like the potatoes recently) My theory is, I am losing fat the whole time, but I have added water weight. After a sting of very good days, the water weight lets go overnight revealing the fat Ive lost during the time in between. Does that make any sense to anyone else, or am I talking out of my ass?

        • Congrats on the whoosh, whether your theory is correct or no.

            Great work!

            Wish I was garden building - we're in the middle of a serious ice storm! No school buses, high winds, power outages - where the hell is spring!!!

            • Hey! That's a cool article. Well, I had more potatoes today. I've decided that even though they may slow weight loss a bit, I am still going to have them a couple times per week. I had them along with bacon and eggs. Yum yum my favorite foods! I'm not too worried about slowing weight loss down. I mean, for crying out loud, I've lost 40 lbs in 2.5 months. By all CW terms thats way too fast. I feel like if I keep going at this rate I'll wind up with major loose skin problems. Don't want that. So, I will eat potatoes and slow it down a bit. Granted I'd LIKE it to all come off at the rate of 15-18 lbs per month with no loose skin side effects, but I don't see that happening.

              We'll see if the potatoes today make me bounce up again.

              • Alright. I am happy to report that the hash browns only made the scale reflect .2 lbs on the scale. Who knows if they were even it cause, or just the Up day in general. Just feeling really awesome about all of this today. I have fallen into such an awesome groove with the ADF, it just makes me want to smile. I encourage EVERYONE to try it out. Besides aiding in fat loss, I do honestly believe there are some awesome health benefits to it as the science suggests. Who doesn't love that?


                Short day at work today, then I need to get the rest of my seedlings potted up. The squash and melons are huge and they need to be transplanted asap. I am nursing my tomato sprouts along. We got some really chilly weather over the last couple days, and they are getting a little droopy. The broccoli, Br. Sprouts, cabbage and kale, however, are doing awesome. This tedium of keeping sprouts alive is wearing on me. I'm constantly nervous that something is going to happen to cause them all to shrivel up and die, making all my work for not. Quit being so negative, I tell myself! It's all going to be ok, and the garden is going to be BIG and AWESOME this year!

                On a side note, primal has NOT made me less sun sensitive. I was out an hour last weekend and I got burnt. I put on my sun hat, but it was too late. Spent the next three days being miserable because my face skin was such a wreck. I actually get a form of contact dermatitis when I get burnt. They say it's something called "photosynthesis sensitivity." I believe it. I hate wearing my sun hat on windy days. Never stays on and interrupts my groove.... BUT it's the only thing that keeps my skin safe.

                I need to find some linen material so I can make some long sleeve shirts. The only thing as bad as having painful, itchy blistery bumps on my face is having them on my neck and arms. Gerargh.

                • I finally read your diary. I just wanted to say that my boyfriend is Asian and he's shorter than me, too.

                    • He is half-Korean. His mother didn't teach him how to cook. His specialty is bacon and eggs. He also uses my rice cooker to cook rice, which he eats with sardines, kimchi, and seasoned seaweed snack shreds.

                        • A few years ago I bought online several sun-bonnets of the type the pioneers used to wear for a costume party. Now I'm weating them for gardening. They completely shade your face and the back of the neck. (They may look a little odd but are wonderfully functional.)

                          • Alright folks, it's been forever since I have written in this dear ol' diary. Funny, every diary I have ever started always gets ditched sooner or later, HA!

                            I just wanted to update. After 17 weeks of primal I am down 50 freakin' pounds. I cannot believe in just another 45 lbs I'll be at my major long term goal. I'm sure it will take me longer than 17 weeks to shed those 45, though. I took pictures and I was very happy with what I saw. I cannot stress enough how much that helped my mental attitude. I was really fussing last night because I couldn't see a difference in the mirror. I was like, "50 pounds off and I look like I've lost... nothing... " No, the pictures do not lie. I feel like the next 45 will be a more dramatic change, however. I feel like now that I've gotten all that horrible fat off me that I've put on in the last three years, things will really start changing. I'm feeling pretty damn good right about now!

                            Things are really ramping up at Gladmorning. I am slowly but surely putting in the garden. The weather is being a little uncooperative, but I am managing to hack away at it. I bought a new cow. I am bringing her home this sunday. So, I will soon be swimming in fresh Jersey milk by the gallons. I have always wanted a Jersey, and I think I found the perfect one for our little farm. I have plans to fence in our front yard and turn some animals out. I am getting pretty sick of spending $4 a gallon to mow the damn yard! It's pointless to have all that grass out there just to cut it off twice per week. So, mostly the goats will be out there and occasionally the cow to get in some pasture rotation.

                            I will tell you a secret though. Last year I planted some rhubarb with the strict intention of making rhubarb pie this year. It's growing like crazy in this weather, and I am going to follow through with that intention.

                            Cryptocode.... I'm going to get some bonnets. I've been burnt 4 times already this year.
