        • I was out in the sun for three days, with modest sun screen, and no sun burns.

          I rule.

          • Hi Guys - how has everyones day been ??????
            Confession time !!!!!!!!.....................Its long, its involved..... but I need to fess up......about 3 weeks ago I ate a cracker. I hadn't had any grains for 5 or so months!!!!! gasp.....okay no big deal.....but I loved that little taste of grain and the next day i ate some more.....which led to some sugar....then lollies......then before i know it I have put 3 kgs back on................
            well guess what !!!! yesterday morning i woke up aching from head to toe....and I mean ACHING. My mouth is full to overflowing with ulcers........ my gut has blown up to twice its normal size........my restless legs have come back with a vengence and I have had so many headaches lately - you wouldn't believe.

            I am grumpy, frumpy, jumpy and feeling a little bit plumpy !!!!!!
            so confession over - but I have got to get me back on track !

            • I know that feeling... it can be such a slippery slope.

                If you're grumpy watch the video of my little nephew that I posted yesterday, that'll give you a chuckle I'm sure

                • good news is if you get onto it, the 3kg should come off pretty quick, if it went on that quick. ITA about the slippery slope. i still stuff up. socially it can be hard. totally absolutely ditching the sugar and honey and grains has helped but it has only been 2 or 3 months AND if i need to stuff my face from stress, i eat nuts or cheese which are also fattening.

                    Sorry you feeling so miserable. You have no need to "confess" to us, however, be encouraged that we are cheering you on as you pick yourself up and get back on track with looking after yourself and healing up. Sleep well, and as Misabi said, Tomorrow is another day. Start fresh.

                    • thanx guys....yes tomorrow is another day.....and I have done okay so far. I have just made two CW lolly houses, and didn't have any of the left over lollies !!!!! yay for me.
                      Seaweed did those books arrive ??????
                      Misabi I cannot get my volume control to go on the computer, So I don't always know what is being said....but I will watch the video anyway !
                      Annie I do need to fess up - cos then it makes me more accountable. Not sure if that will help or not LOL
                      Zoes those slippery slopes are not good - but I suppose if it means I get back on that horse !!!!!!

                      I have been invited to middle DHs crate day today !!!! Apparently you have to take a crate along and can't leave until the whole crate has been drunk !!!!!
                      So I made myself this tiny little crate out of cardboard, and filled it up with weeny teeny bottles. I will just leave it there thou, cos I don't fancy driving drunk !!!!!
                      We have also been invited to the neighbourhood BBQ, hence the two CW houses. so I will try and post some photies....not that you will like these houses, cos they are only good for the rubbish, with all the shit that they have in them !!!!!!! LOL

                      • hiya gwamma yes those books did arrive. thankyou =) i tried to pm you to tell you but your inbox was full so i gave up. then got side tracked as work has been mental this week. which one do you recommend i start on as i have almost finished azincourt.

                        you are female so you can always always get away with not drinking the whole crate. hide behind the hair, smile sweetly and stamp your foot as we are so not expected to drink loads of beer. maybe the odd glass of wine but generally not in my experience. especially if we are on a "diet" lol. the only reason anyone has ever plied me with excess alcohol is either to make themselves feel better or to try to get into my pants. my tips for problem avoidance in this case is if you feel real socially pressured, make like you are a tinsy bit trolleyed and start spilling your drinks by accident or pour some down the sink while no one is looking. works every time. make yourself a coffee or start on the water so no one notices you havent got something to drink in your hand. CW houses and baking is the absolute best way to go as you can give it to them and say, i so cant eat it as i get so ill but the recipe just doesnt work with GF flour. My other trick is to buy a packet of high end chocolate biscuits and tell them i didnt have time to bake. this bit is actually the easy bit of the social aspect. refusing specially prepared things for you is the nasty bit. on the subject of CW houses, check this out
                        Gingerbread house
                        i know how to make GF gingerbread that sticks together. I use butter, honey, sugar, eggs, spices, vanilla, and a combo of rice, tapioca and millet flour. what helps it stick together is making fudge with the butter and honey. i reckon, and it would be an experiment, that you could do it with coconut flour,ground almonds/hazelnuts and tapioca, none of which are grains. and maybe use palm sugar instead of the sugar or skip it altogether. which would be almost almost primal. then you could use all manner of nuts and dried fruit and poss make some form of icing you could pipe with creamed coconut and honey and egg whites. i so couldnt deal with all those carbs and natural sugars in one place but it would be worth an experiment for xmas.

                        crazy day today. was sposed to be going fishing and of course who got nominated to dive off the boat into known shark infested waters for paua lol it then blew up a nasty gale and hosed down so we got to do our own crate day on the devil's cut and some venison for munchies. i smiled lots, had one shot of bourbon and drunk 1 litre of water. no dramas at all. managed 12ks walking. 6ks with the dog and 6ks on my own. and a ride on the bike before the weather caved so all in all a good lot done.

                        been experimenting too with ass to grass barbarian squats with the clubbell. lots of fun and 10 will totally rinse you and get your heart pounding.

                        • Seaweed that is fantastic. I have cleaned out my inbox - sorry.
                          if you go eeny meany miny mo.....you will work out which one to start first !!!! LOL
                          Crate day was fine. I put a whole heap of tiny bottles of whiskey, vodka, gin, jaagermista etc etc etc into the wee crate, and didn't drink any !!!! yay for young men keen on impressing the local girls !!!!! So I arrived with my crate, CW cake and 7 mattraces.....and was gone an hour later, having only drunk a small glass of red ! Everyone was staying the night at DDs so all in all great. Then I went to the neighbourhood BBQ. Its such a shame that you can't choose your neighbours !!!!
                          We have a couple of loose canons around us, one of them thank fully is heading to Aussie to live. Sorry australia, but hes gonna soon be your problem !!!!
                          I have been commissioned to make a CW house for another neighbours 8 year old birthday, or a cake of some sort....so thinking caps on please !

                          • is the 8yr old a boy or a girl? i am lucky in that all my neighbours are awesome. it is the only place i have ever lived where that is the case so it is something i really appreciate. managed another 6ks with the dog yesterday and a 4.5k round trip to the end of the beach and back with the man in the evening. making the most of the kids being at their dads. just been on the meat and salad too. plus the ubiquitous coffee and cream as usual and i am managing a litre of water a day. my liquid minerals seem to be working well. the subtle red patches on tops of my cheek bones are subsiding i think. i'm doing vit C and vit E and vit K as well. plus getting my vit D when the sun is out.

                            • Seaweed, your life sounds so cool. Foraging for paua in shark infested waters in the morning, digging into venison on the arvo :-)

                              Gwamma, good on ya ;-)

                              You may have already seen this, but well worth a watch. A trailer for an inspirational doco due out next year:

                              INSPIRED: The Movie (Post Production) by Steve Yu and Ken Young — Kickstarter

                              Haven't been able to find any details of his diet, but whatever he did it's pretty amazing.
