    • I'm sure there'd be quite a welcoming committee at the airport.

        • LMFAO here's me thinking you wanted to see me not my deer! 2 funny. i had baked fillets for dinner. literally threw them in the oven at 240C in a cast iron skillet, smidgen of water and a ill fitting lid. baked them for poss 20 -30 mins. turned the oven off. ran the dog down the beach and came home. they were tender as and just cooked thru. very yummy and i dont think they were gamey but i think i am maybe immune to the gamey taste now due to lots of practise. we saw the police contigent escorting the royals today. they held us up on the way through town to go see my oldest to give her about 10kgs of venison. a very portly police officer looking very official held up the traffic whilst i was trying to text and thankfully i had remembered to put my safety belt on. i did wonder if he would have done me or not as he would have had to stop directing traffic to do so LOL

            • no i missed them. i was in the naughty dusty black truck on a mission. i ran out of time today which was very annoying as i was going to take the kids hydrosliding ( code for i was going and taking the kids as cover! ) i'm not exactly a royalist but i do think she is gorgeous and the baby is cute.

              was the food nice at the BBQ G? recipes? i had a bit of an incident the other night so i am not gonna stand in judgement there. i also read somewhere of recent people who dont drink are fatter than people who do.

              • Hi guys, can I join your thread?? im Jackie from Nth Canterbury, 40 yrs old, 2 kids. Im trying primal for the second time round, first time didn't make 21 days but mentally was looking for a weight loss solution as this time im just wanting internal health, and so far im finding it a lot easier this time round. My starting weight is 196lbs, 5.7" im wanting to get to 165lbs so a bit of a weigh to go!! In the past ive competed in body building for 2 years, that stuffed up my head more than my body, but still took about 4-5 yrs to get over the whole yo yo effect.
                Ive gained my unwanted weight with stress with the earthquakes we have had and also multiple family deaths over 18 mths and have struggled with my health since. Im currently having acupuncture to get my hormones/kidneys balanced after having surgery last year and finding my kidneys were under a lot of stress. That has lead me back here to get more of a internal health balance.
                I do use some of Dr Libby Weavers recipies but find it all seems to be similar but I don't have as many grains.
                So that's pretty much me, im aiming for 21 days and on day 6 so far!!

                • Yogi - welcome. What part of north Canterbury are you from ????
                  I am also a North Cantabrian. have lived in these part all my married life - as in 30 years !!!!!!
                  Its great to have you on board.

                  Seas what a shame you missed the royals. I also think that Kate and William seem like lovely people, however too much to do at home - so haven't ventured nto the big city to see them.
                  Weare actually staying in Dunedin next sat night, and then onto Gunns camp. I should be popping in on sunday morning Seas - althou not sure as to how, when where, how !!!!!!!!

                  The packing for our big adventure is going well. However there is always some thing that you find you have forgotten - once you have gotten to the destination !!!!!!!!

                  thats called a BUGGER moment !!!!!!!

                  • i always forget something too. i have done it for so long now that i improvise. i usually remember the important things like the kids and the dog. that is all you really need other than some money. matches and a gun lol you will eat and keep warm. the rest is the big adventure! i'm not so big on crowds or screaming ones at that which was why i wouldnt go see the royals. i'm not a royalist at all but reckon they are a necessary evil. way preferable to president Key - yuck!!! and the whole thing is a very slick operation now so at least it is good entertainment.

                    Yogi welcome. i'd be interested to hear your experiences in body building. the one thing that puts me off is the long term effects. i'm old enough to work out being mega skinny and buff temporarily is not a good trade off for long term body sizing. healthwise too. i have found *ahem* *cough* a corruption of mr peat to have really helped with things like stress related everything. plus you need a good physical outlet which i will let G interpret LOL

                    • Hi seaweed, I can only comment on my own experience, the gym I was going to at the time had a few competitive bodybuilders including the owner, as I love the "athletic" look I got hooked along the ride.
                      I started my journey at 94kgs and competed 6 months later at 66kg. I loved having achieved so much, and to top it off I won my category. It was very hard to get there though, I had to sacrifice a lot, running twice daily, weight training up to 5 x a week, eating low or no carbs and on every supplement you could think of to burn the fat, keep the muscle keeping my immune system running. However after my competition I moved down to Canterbury, and over 3 months I gained 19kg back!! Because I had never competed before I didn't know what would happen after the event. Anyway long story short, I competed the following year and got down to 65kg came second in my category, went to nationals at 63kg, but didn't place. I had lost the plot completely. I was starving myself but felt I couldn't get off the ride. I knew then I could never do this again, it wasn't for me. I didn't want to gain anymore muscle, but of course couldn't keep the body fat low to enjoy the look either. My nutritionist I went to for my 2 year journey told me first up that the sport was not for me, my body held a lot of water and that I would struggle. I wanted to prove something to myself and prove him wrong.
                      My body was the most efficient machine I ever had! the energy wasn't there and neither was my head but I was strong and boy could I run! I was eating only clean food however my body was also very stressed as my gums used to ache constantly.
                      I feel it took my body about 4-5 years to come right. My mind, well I don't think that ever has, as im still struggling with head games.
                      However, this was my journey with bodybuilding, I have met lots of successful competitors over the years that look fantastic both on and off seaon. I have also met some women that like me struggled with the weight gain and head games. Please don't take my journey as the only journey as I said earlier there have been lots of successful stories.

                      • This is what I have always worried about. I have rather an addictive streak too so I do need to be careful. I would say you stuffed yourself up as well by going too low carb. It did me in. Cortisol city. The effect it had on my concentration and my mind and my relationships wasnt good either. I am only really just coming right and it is hard work. That said, we did work out that I only need to lose maybe 4 or 5kgs max to make my class which isnt much.

                        • I guess in my case it was something I wanted to do, I ticked the box but if I had known what id be in for after the 2 year stint I probably wouldn't have gone there in the first place. However in saying that, like I said earlier I had a very proud moment of what I did when I put my mind to it. I worked for it, I got it. I can say ive experienced it. Im pleased to say though ive moved on from that whereas I still see some females trying to strive to compete and struggle against their bodies and the damage they are doing long term, I guess they will find that out later.
                          I sound like a very negative person towards the sport but in fact I have some friends that do it and are very good and have been doing it for 10 yrs or so, I admire anybody that choses to compete, not many sports require you do get as lean as possible. Good luck with your decision

                          • i have always reckoned you need to do something maintainable. i have met way too many people, not just women, in my age group who are obese couch potatoes who apparently were mega sporty when they were younger. or those people who sit on the couch, get obese, train for a marathon, lose loads of weight, then sit on the couch and get obese again. gross simplification but you get what i mean. i'd rather never run the marathon or have represented new zealand at netball but still fit my wedding dress and be able to go up and down hills and move and have fun when i am 50. plus truly i am lazy. both mentally and physically. it is a survival adaptation as the less energy we expended the longer we lasted way back LOL or that is my excuse i hate all that boring long distance running, i hate having to eat chicken, egg whites, tuna and rice crackers. i'd rather intermittently starve, go on rampages every now and then and eat venison when i want. so yeah, maybe i will do shape class when i am 50. maybe i wont. we shall see. i do love weight lifting but running 2x a day i would have to work out tho.

                            • howdy doody troups - looks like another wet day here in North Canterbury. What part are you in Yogi ????

                              The packing for the next big adventure is going well, althou weight in the boat is a huge issue.....BUT I will not be leaving the cast iron behind !!!!!!!

                              Today I am heading into CHCH and going to he Paleo Butcher. I so cannot wait. The butcher sent a heap of goods for us to try at our hunter / gatherer BBQ last weekend. She had some really yummy meats - so I am gonna take some way down into the depths of the south. The weather isn't looking very good for the next week, so we might not even get into the Hollyford ?????
                              Then of course once we are in, if the weather turns nasty, the helicopter may not be able to come and lift the boats out ??????
                              I am so loving me an adventure !!!!!!!
