    Discovered a new workout

    I call it the JRT workout. It's simple and fun, it's consistent with the primal lifestyle, and it doesn't require a lot of equipment. Now you're probably all saying, "Tell me more." ok, here goes.

    All is well in VA. Married life is very much agreeing with me, though I've gone from about 98/2 primal to 80/20. Still feeling great though, as can be expected from avoiding wheat and seed oils.

    I hadn't thought of that one. Another one to try is "I don't need fiber. Just a tablespoon of lard before every meal lubricates my system really well."
