  • You've Come a long way, baby

    Had to share my 'you know you're primal when' moment because I never thought I'd be "this girl"...

    I literally just did a little Dance while reheating my roast beef to have for lunch because it is so delicious. This coming from the girl who used to only dance for junk food or another cocktail Thank you, PB and this forum!!

    What is your recent 'you know you're primal when' moment?

    You know your Primal when….

    It's a colleague's last day and everyone is surrounding your desk eating double chocolate
    Good-Bye cake and your not. :-)

      My birthday gift to myself will be 1/2 a cow.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          You spend the hour or so after dinner casually gnawing on the edges of a beef shank bone that had been braised enough to soften it up a little.

            You know your primal when everyone else questions your eating habits and murmurs that you are going to drop dead of a heart attack. I remember some co-workers laughing at me when I had bacon and eggs for lunch. They said "your heart is a ticking time bomb" while giggling. They walked away with their venti frappaccino's and "health" muffins. (They are both obese) And they think I am crazy the way I eat? Everyone else is crazy with the processed crap they put in their mouths.

            People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                  I ended up baking treats for co-workers using flour and sugar (I know, it's wrong but it's the holidays and I'm baking). I got more excited about the dry mustard in the grocery bag (instead of the chocolate squares) because I add it to my hard boiled eggs.

                      When, as a cardiology nurse, you advise your clients to eat less polyunsaturated fats, and grains, instead, eating nonstarchy vegetables, eggs, meat, fruit, olive oil, and (gasp) coconut oil.

                              been 6 months primal... got home from a long day of work last week and wifey hit me with the message that the doc left on the answering machine - he wants to talk to you about your high cholesterol numbers... HDL 59, LDL 166 trigs 69... (BTW (for fans of griff's thread - these are calculated, so it is most likely better) and she looks you dead in the eyes saying, see... i told you this diet of yours is unhealthy... HAH!

                              what she didn't realize is that my numbers used to be around 300 total with mediocre ratios! I wish PB helped me have less of a temper. We've made up since then and can now laugh about it... and she may even be starting to believe me... (maybe I'm just hopeful)... but we are still a split household food-wise.
