    I have a bald patch on my shin, and was trying for a month to figure out how it happened, until one day it hit me (literally). Deadlifts.

    Whelp, sounds like I just put New Zealand on my short list of places to visit. It was already there, but...

      i was looking at them, but i'm in between their sizes. med is too big, sm is too small. there is shop in town; i'm hoping to get a fair trade one there.

      • Here's one: I don't get really sick anymore, only half-ass sick. So when everybody gets to sleep through a sick day with some cold medicine, I just have to cripple through because I'm not quite sick enough, only somewhat miserable. No sympathy and no tlc. Yes. It annoys me now.

        • For those like me with wide/ muscular calves but not wide feet, try shoedazzle.com for boots. I just got a pair of knee highs that were actually LOOSE on me, as in I could tuck in a pair of jeans like a normal human being.
          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!"

              • I am frustrated that on only my 5th day of primal, I've disproved my long-time belief that I have no willpower. I just turned down a myriad of my favorite pre-primal foods without a thought or regret. Now I don't have any more excuses

                • My only frustration so far is that the hair on my legs is growing at an exponential rate. It used to be I could shave them once a month and that was all I needed. Now it's like every 3 days. I haven't noticed if the hair on my head is growing that fast or not, I'll have to check to see how often I'm getting it cut vs. before.

                    • Frustration today: Going grocery shopping after the mostly-vegetarian SO gets back from her trip home and seeing the stuff she buys. Tofu, tortillas, pitas, corn chips, popcorn...

                      To each their own, though it frustrates me a little for her to see my success, complain about her weight (I think she looks great) and then continue down a path that isn't working for her.

                        Thank you!
                        Today's frustration: Even worse. I turned down pizza, my pre-primal 2nd favorite food. And it was free. And there were so may extras left over that they were begging to give away.
                        But I turned it down and it didn't even faze me. Where did my lack of self-control go??? It was such an awesome crutch!

                        • Whenever I have a problem that makes me worry enough to book an appointment (happens once or twice a year), the problem heals up by the in the 2 or 3 days waiting to see a Dr/Nurse.

                          Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

                          • I cannot bear to go without a decent night's sleep any more. If I don't get at least 7 hours, I feel like I'm coming down with the flu and I am in bed right after dinner tha next night. I'm not sure if I just felt so crappy all the time before that I didn't notice the effect of not enough sleep or if eating better has made me into a fragile flower.

                            • If you are feeling the cold, eat more fatty foods.
                              A Doctor who spends months every year at one or the other of the poles, recommended this. (I wish I could get on his list, but then he would be absent most of the year!) I wonder though; did he get that tip from the Inuit?

                              Incidentally, the other day I just stocked up with a week' or so supply of expensive, grass fed meat, and wild fish, etc. This afternoon my refrigerator packed up. So now all that lovely food is in the freezer... which I didn't really want to do!

                              • Oh so many frustrating "frustrations".

                                * I feel guilty when I look at people who are trying to be healthy and/or lose weight eating cardboard while I enjoy my delicious meal.

                                * It annoys me when during lunch I'm not hungry or don't need even a snack while most of my friends/colleagues are famished and run to the cafeteria for their midday fix. I have to entertain myself otherwise.

                                * I also have various old medications from some years back and I have to keep stopping by the pharmacy to dispose of them since they've remained unused and passed their expiration date. So much money wasted.

                                Paleo, what you do to me...
