    Had an amazing time this weekend, homecoming, boyfriend visited, good company, good times. Was it a primal weekend, No... but it was a healthy stress relieving weekend. Time to kick it back into gear of clean eating, I'm excited and craving a salad, I LOVE salads, always have.

    Game plan for the week, clean eating, considering keeping oatmeal though. Some kind of movement everyday, weather it is a special walk just for me, some lifting, or bike riding. Monday I will jog for sure, and I plan to do some heavy weights on Tuesday. Also my goal is to get lots of out door time and sunshine.

    Thats really about it, I can't track the weekend between tailgating and sitting around watching football but I can look into this next week and make it a great one

      Feeling bloated as ever this morning, was planning on breakfast but for now a cup of tea will do. Still trying to decide if I want to keep oatmeal in the diet, I figure if its 35g carbs and made with out all the funny stuff in those prepackaged ones, and use honey as the sweetener, 35g/100g carbs still leaves me with a good chunk for the rest of the day...

      Will continue tracking through out the day...

        I would worry less about the amount of carbs in oatmeal and more about how it makes you feel. Have you ever cut it out for any significant portion of time (say, 30 days)?

          It wouldn't hurt, I know bread makes me feel poorly (as experienced this weekend). I guess I'm trying to avoid becoming obsessive over the diet and oatmeal seemed to be something I could eat. You know, I have never actually done the 21 day challenge, and I'm not really sure I know how, I always end up in a binge after a week. I'd really like to but my brain can't seem to stick with it. If I wanted to start now it would include Thanksgiving, this could get difficult but still doable considering turkey, sweet potatos, salads... just have to make a primal pumpkin pie.

          Have you done the 21 day challenge? When I get busy I make excuses and don't eat what I preach I guess.
          lol it almost scares me to try it again, If I start tomorrow would it be silly with Thanksgiving vacation ahead? I need to figure out how to make it the lifestyle instead of a diet.

            When I go to thanksgiving, I sometimes eat the meat. All of it. Seconds and thirds of turkey and more turkey. But many Thanksgiving foods are perfectly Primal! I just don't want to waste stomach space that could have held meat.... So eat whatever you want. You can even just put the bad food on your plate and leave it there for the trash, people seem to like that. I find it awful, but that's the hungry poor kid talking,

              I've never done the challenge, persay, but I've done a few Whole30s (strict paleo) and strict primal months here and there. If you are binging, I'm guessing you aren't eating enough or maybe not eating enough of something in particular. That seems to be a common factor for women who binge: not enough protein/food.

              Primal pumpkin pie is easy. Mark has one in his blog. I made one last year and will do so again, but not sure I'm going to make the nut crust again (it was too salty).

              A lot of people around here will sometimes do a strict Primal thing (Whole-however-many-days) between the holidays to avoid too much indulgence. For me, I just take it a day at a time. When I get a few good days in a row, I take it a week at a time, then a few weeks etc. There's no harm in doing a short-term focus, taking a break for holiday fun, and then getting back on track!

              I feel you on being busy though, that is usually my downfall. I get busy, I don't prep, I don't eat, and then I eat junk!

                Sounds good, I think I am going to try and get a few good primal days under my belt and then start MY 21 day challenge. I'm excited to do it and thought about it a lot today, but I don't want to jump in to fast and crash. I'm going to practice the Slow life down part, get back in gear from this last weekend, go to the grocery store, and then start my own little challenge.

                Oh the primal pumpkin pie is sounding good... namelesswonder what do you plan to use for a crust then? Or are you simply going to omit the salt in the recipe?

                  I think I'll just make it like a custard kind of thing, without a crust, or I'll buy a pre-made gluten-free crust

                    Are you sure youre not calculating body mass index? 123lbs and 23%bf doesnt seem right to me.

                      hmm DemtaCypher0 - why do you say this does not sound right? I am pretty sure this is my BF% I have also seen it on my parents scale...

                      Today I took some before pictures, I'm posting for me.. I am not starting my challenge today, but its always nice to see a visual change.

                      So far today I have had cabbage soup and a grapefruit for food. Sunshine is out and I will probably go for a walk before work.

                        Your bf% is similar to mine. I think at your height, that's about accurate. Very healthy! Though not what athletic types generally like

                          Haha, no, it is not generally what athletic types like. Its the thighs... I'm not use to my wide thighs. Just a couple years ago, I was really into running and had a body fat% around 15-16% I often feel like I should still be in that body though I am most definitely not. At the same time, when I was running I don't think I had as much muscle as I do now... I would just be more comfortable with myself if I was a little more lean, no need to be 15% BF again though.

                          I had a decent day of eating, lots of vegetables, and more fruit than normal. I didn't get any specific work out in today, I took the morning as some slow me time. At work, I did carry kitchen aid mixers down the steps to the basement and did a fair amount of walking.

                          I was thinking today, I wonder if people celebrate Christmas if they do not believe in God particularly in the U.S. I feel like there are many people who still celebrate it and I wonder what their traditions revolve around... I've gotten a good impression that my boyfriend does not believe in God persay, but I know he still celebrates christmas... just pondering.

                            Yeah, Christmas is kind of the "default" holiday in my experiences, though most atheists I've encountered grew up with religious parents. My generalization is that it's not really about religion anymore. I will continue to celebrate Christmas even though I'm not Christian (but that's how I was raised).

                              Starting to feel a little better and balanced out today with my energy level. I do feel a little bloated though from eating a lot of vegetables. I need to go to the store tomorrow, and then might start my challenge either tomorrow or Friday.

                              list for the store:
                              -eggs, -chicken, -salmon,
                              -almonds, - avacado, -dark chocolate? - sweet potato
                              I am pretty well stocked up on things like coconut oil, vegetables, garlic, onions, spices ....

                              Oh yeah! I would really like to make coconut shrimp again soon... but I might wait for this round and get salmon... oh man I am getting excited to cook

                              Tonight I made a vegetable stir fry for dinner which was pretty good and then had canned tuna for some protein, just what I had around but I am feeling super sleepy and ready for bed, didn't get out of class until 8:45 tonight & I am pooped!

                                I Changed My Mind

                                So yes, I changed my mind, and I think its just fine... I think this kinda rhymed. I layed in bed last night after writing my little list of things i'll get from the store, and I realized I don't necessarily need a 'challenge' to eat healthy and feel healthy. I think and this time it is best for me to eat primally to the best of my ability. When I put in the factor of it being a challange that means to me that I could Fail and I'm not really in the mood for this right now.

                                I also was thinking maybe I should say I am going 'Food Shopping' rather that to the grocery store or 'grocery shopping' hehehe... Food shopping means real food to me, grocery shopping means all sorts of products like bread and candies too
