    That's a LOT of vitamin D. I was taking 5,000 IU/day and my bloodwork over the winter (had to have a physical for an MMA fight I had scheduled) came back with my D levels at the upper limit of the reference range. I get a good amount of sun on the weekends (a bit on weekdays too since I walk to and from work), so I take 20,000 IU in the middle of the week, either all in one day or split between Tuesday and Wednesday.

    • Best of yesterday: combining some walking outdoors, some weighted walking and some sprints and only feeling slightly guilty about neglecting my arms.
      Worst of yesterday: being told I couldn't hunt the pheasants in the back yard.

      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.

        • My period does not warn me.
          It used to be that I'd have cramps, mood swings and hunger before a period. Now I don't get cramps, only have mood swings if SEVERELY stressed (so they're not a reliable predictor) and am only slightly hungrier than usual. So I get taken by surprise.

          • I find much frustration and difficulty in the fact that I can't make ten different kinds of meals every day and try them all, just because primal foods are delicious as heck.

            • We have too many bowls! I bought extra for our dishes, because with 4 people eating cereal almost every day, we went through a lot of bowls. I'm thinking of taking a few to Goodwill, because there's at least 6 of them that haven't made it into the rotation in at least 6 months.

                We still eat stuff out of bowls all the time. I still occasionally buy more for vegetables, stewish things, and the endless buffet of leftovers and stewish things found in the fridge. We do a lot of grazing here.

                • The clothes thing is getting old. I bought a bunch of dresses in February prior to starting crossfit. One month into crossfit... oopsie, nothing fits thru the torso. I've lost more thru my trunk. The frustrating part is that my lower half has stalled so I am now again, a mash up of sizes. I tried on a gorgeous Calvin Klein sheath dress, size 10. Baggie thru the torso, snug across the thighs. So now I am back in that awkward body shape where clothes don't fit right.

                  • I keep buying new t-shirts and jeans, but I keep having to buy more. Underwear, too. Right now I have 4 garments hanging in the closet. I put most of my clothes in a garbage bag to give away.

                      Sounds like I need more steak n' eggs.

                      • Gripes and complaints about going primal?

                        I don't really have any complaints about clothes. Since I never threw out my smaller size shirts and jeans. I now just donate out my XXLs and XL shirts, and size 36 - 42 waist pants.

                        My main complaints are:

                        1) Hard to eat out when with friends.
                        2) No one wants to walk more then 3 miles . . . . .
                        3) Getting ragged on by my friends when I just have a very very small bite of anything grain or rice based . . . . . . even though they are just joking with me . . . . .
                        4) My hands are colder now . . . . . well, I feel colder in general now. Less insulation
                        5) Spending way too much money on coffee daily now
                        6) People asking me, how do you stay so fit while I'm eating my double patty bacon burger lettuce wrapped . . . . haha

                        • I have to shave my strip of belly-hair (pubis-to-bellybutton) when I model. But I'm really proud of it, because it shows all the testosterone I have. Wish I could keep it always. It's grown on me (pun, oh-so-intended ).

                          • In just two weeks of about 90/10 primal, I am now waking up before my Lumie finishes making the sun rise, running up the stairs at the transport interchange, and fidgeting like mad.

                            • Here's my frustration: with all the vanity sizing in women's clothing, I'm worried that the smallest sizes at my favorite stores will soon be too big for me! (I'm 5'1" and have always been petite, but I'm also muscular and my true size really should be a 4 or 6. I get really confused when I have to go down to a 0, because I'm not that small. Where do the small-framed, willowy women shop? Seriously, I can't figure it out.)

                              The clothes thing is annoying. I have this great pair of shorts that I wore two weeks ago, and they were a bit tight. Tried them on yesterday, and they were practically falling off of me. Oh no! But I'm trying to beat the system by buying a couple skirts that just barely zip. Hopefully they're be just right when I go on vacation next month.

                                Isn't there a double 0? But that's really tiny. The second part of your question - from the girl's department.
                                My ultimate goal was/is size 2. I'm stuck at 4 now. It was much easier 10 years ago when I was in my mid 20-es, though.
