    I found the same thing to be true about eggs: they are a miracle breakfast food. I can easily cruise through the five or six hours between breakfast and lunch with no snacks if I eat eggs.

    I think part of it has to do with our manipulation of the environment, too - we are exposed to non-native flowering plants and more abundant pollinators, perhaps, than Grok. In addition, we aren't...

    Me, too. Sometimes I just can't motivate myself to do them, and sometimes it's embarrassing when someone walks by and I'm doing push-ups in my cubicle, but when I can get in a couple 5-minute bursts...

    Thanks Just4Me & MeatMe216 (*blush*). I definitely think I look WAYYY better. It turns out, I lost about 6 pounds just doing a half-a$$ed version of PB, so within the first couple of days of full-on...

    OK, so...Day 10!

    Yesterday was good. We discovered that blending frozen strawberries with Greek yogurt, a teeny bit of stevia, and coconut milk = deliciousness. DH had a smoothie for dessert to...

    OK, keeping on pretty well.

    Hmmm...good advice. I don't want to try too much at once. I'll just keep sticking to the basics and add stuff in once I get accustomed to the whole experience.

    Day 4

    Day 2

    So far, so good on Day 2. Breakfast was three eggs cooked in coconut oil, and coffee with organic grass-fed heavy cream (well, actually, the cream wasn't grass-fed, but you know what I mean).
