  • after the honeymoon is over

    So you went primal and saw results.

    then what?

    where did you go after the excitement died down...

    this is coming from a guy who thinks learning and growth are required not optional

    i went straight to the store and bought 15 boxes of fruity pebbles and sat crying, surrounded by them, stuffing handfuls into my face
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

      I went off the deep end, suddenly perfectly aware of every right, every wrong, and every truth in the universe. Unable to handle such beauty and truth, I was hauled off to a padded room in a maximum security mental hospital after attempting to burn down a jail. I now write this via speech to text because my overly helpful therapist bundled me into a self hug jacket. They're feeding me hospital food and the truth and beauty are going away. I can't bear being ordinary again; I can't. Kill me, please.

          did that hurt? do fruity pebbles fit into your facial orifices?

          how does one get them out of ones nose?

            Ukuleles are awesome! Once I got the food part down I started concentrating on fitness aspects, I too feel like I have to have a goal, my newest: I've recently decided to work towards becoming a Yoga Instructor!

                I never really had a "honeymoon" period. It's still always adapting, still finding new and exciting things. I'm still on the hunt for a cure for my anxiety and depression.

                  Omg... I was definitely ready to type some smart-assed response, but I can't top fruity pebbles! Well done, lol.

                    Still plodding down that road...

                    I have made some really great strides in recovery from my illness!
                    And lost weight... slowly.
                    I even managed to start driving again after just over a year, though I never drive very far. I'm still a bit scared that something will "happen" though I haven't had a full on episode of that sort in a a while.

                    My brain issue is likely related to a chemical issues in a article I recently read... it's complicated but it amounts to the fact that I need to get back to Low Carb.
                    I was adding in more rice and carbs in... and reducing my medication at the same time... my illness got worse and I blamed the reduction in medication. Probably a bit prematurely...
                    I now am doing another round after going back LC-VLC... I'm not sure I need full on Ketosis.
                    But my brain issue has included problems that mimic partial seizures which point me in this direction.

                    n=1
                    That's how this works.

                    I don't know if I ever had a "honeymoon" with Primal...
                    It's always been just me, plodding down this road because, honestly... WTF else am I going to do?
                    I cant eat salt... medical dietary restriction... that removes 90% of packaged foods right there.
                    I know that in my shoes (i.e. crazy medical issues) a crap diet will just make it worse.
                    I hope that this clean healthy diet is helping heal me... it seems to be working (with my own adjustments) as my doctors are surprised that I haven had some issues that other people typically have when taking the medications I'm on.
                    You do what you can...
                    And march on.

                    Maybe this time next year there will be a "success" story about me?
                    Maybe not. Because I might not have the 'six pack' that people consider a success...
                    But if I get a REMISSION... f*k them all.
                    “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”

                    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

                      honeymoon was short and weak. I adhere to gluten free 95% of the time because i know what gluten does to me. other than that, I'm fairly strict primal but have my moments of "whatever." Now I go in fits and starts. Sometimes I feel like leaning out and so i go low-carb paleo and do my bodyweight exercises (on top of walking a mile or two every morning, which is nonnegotiable due to the dog). Then I get bored, slack off, and eat whatever I want (which is still pretty clean by most people's standards).

                        Ok, smartassery out of my system, here's the real version.
                        I can't say I ever had a true honeymoon period. Maybe briefly, here and there, when my body likes the newest incarnation. It's always been experimentation for me. VLC didn't cut it, ketosis was not my friend, adding iodine and trace minerals helped... the list goes on, but I'm still experimenting, tweaking, and reading. I don't know that I'll ever perfect it, but I mean to get as close as possible.

                          I hit my first goal (38 pants) and have reevaluated. Next goal is a strength goal (an unassisted, full pull up). With that said, the excitement hasn't died down. However, I saw a recipe for Baconana Bread that could tempt me for a bite despite the flour

                            This. Except for me it's that I'm still looking for a way to eat and exercise that will get and keep me roughly where I want to be without constant counting and obsessing.

                            So I'm (a little) fat again, but I'm happy, so whatever. I'm focusing on functional fitness and giving my body everything it needs. Also working on reducing negative stress by drastically changing and simplifying our living conditions (quitting 9 to 5 and going nomadic, working on a small business with my wife and living on the road for a while, in pursuit of adventure!), which I think will make a big positive difference.

                            And playing my ukulele makes me happy, too.

                              Like others, still adapting, still losing, still trying to get stronger, and my partner and I have decided to learn how to play electric guitars.
