Best: Just retrieved an email that my sardine subscription shipped yesterday. I'm out and thought I'd have to wait until the 2nd or 3rd of April to get them.
Good: put the bone broth in the ice cube trays and other containers and have the bones ready for the neighbor dog. He's such a snuggy bear.
Worst: Realizing I'm excited about getting a delivery of sardines. :p
Worst: My dh forgot to take his (primal) lunch, again.
Best: I ate it. (Roast chicken and kumara, hmm).
Best: Achieving "hero" status at my local butcher shop. While paying for my very large purchase I was asked what I'm cooking this weekend. I said, "The steak is for tonight and the rest is for a hostess gift. Some people bring flowers; I bring meat."
Worst: Running out of the cat's raw food and having to give her my last can of sardines. I was quite resentful when eating my eggs later in the day.
Best: Completing 38 hours of fasting.
Worst: getting sick from a can of chili with no "trigger" ingredients. Not sure what happened there, but I did NOT feel good afterward.
Doing a test: Will eating 150g of potato have a direct effect on my weight tomorrow? We'll see.
Welp, I'll do mine in reverse order and you'll see why:
WORST: One of my clients left a little baggie of Easter goodies for me - M & M's, chocolate peanuts, etc. I ignored it while it was in my car planning to throw them away when I stopped at the gas station) and in a weak stress induced moment I grabbed a handful and shoved them in my mouth. The first few tasted delicious but then all of a sudden it was just too much sugar, too much ICK. Ugh, I hated myself after it.
BEST: I realized my body just CAN'T tolerate that crap anymore. A year ago I'd have snarfed the entire bag of candy without a second thought. Then probably pick through my candy stash at home later that night. But I'm now realizing things like that are a test. There will be weak moments when I HAVE to have the M&M's and I do indulge, but those moments teach me for the next time, and I'll remember that icky feeling I had all day, the mood swing and the headache. Lesson learned :).
[QUOTE=Derpamix;1121092]Please take this weather from me. I live in SoCal, we're looking at 85+ all next week and I can't stand it. I don't want the sun to maim my beautiful porcelain skin. My skin is so pale, I frequently get asked the following questions: "Are you sick?" "Do you ever go outside!?"(ironically I'm outside then) "Are you cold?"(I'm wearing a short sleeve shirt and it's like 60 degrees...) "Are you dying?" "Are you dead?" "Do you bleach your skin?" Ecetera ecetera
With my hair colored a midnight blueish black, I look like a straight up vampire; especially with my rather sharp canine teeth(which should indicate I'm aligned to eating meat, but I'm not!)
Anyway, my best primal moment yesterday:
Says it all really.[/QUOTE]
OMG I'm fair too and am always asked if I am sick! I have red hair and freckles so you'd think people would realize I'm naturally that way. And I burn like mad, as does my oldest son who is white as white can be.

That might also have something to do with why people are concerned for his health.
I am a redhead with stupid pasty colored skin too. The only thing I have going for me is my "freckle tan." People don't ask me if I'm sick, but they do give me a hard time about my whiteness. Or the fact that I have to wear long sleeves and a big goofy hat in the summer, or carry an umbrella.

Aw, if you burn easily I recommend buying some zinc oxide cream(3.99 at cvs) and mixing it with coconut oil and applying it. It certainly helps me fight off the sun. If your skin is oily you don't need to apply the coconut oil
Best: Starting to FEEL better about my appearance. Noting that I am down 33 pounds.
Worst: The only primal food in my house at the moment is eggs. Getting kinda tired of those. Good thing it's my fasting day.
