Have to take a few steps back...
I've not been on for a week or so, and I'm sure nobody noticed anyway. I have been eating primal for about 6 weeks, a month and a half and after purchasing primal fair for three shopping trips in a row I find I cannot afford to sustain this eating pattern. Since I'm not only buying food for me but for other people who choose not to eat primal, I am still purchasing all the other things I did and the primal fare is just too much for my budget.
Until I am making about twice as much as I make now (and can actually start paying my child care provider) I have to put primal eating on the back burner, for the most part. I won't actually be eating that differently from when I wasn't primal, I didn't eat a lot of grains/breads for food anyway, it was an occassional thing so I'll just go back to that and keep away from the chips, crackers, cookies and candy which triggers the carb binging for me more then other things do.
It's frustrating that good food costs so much more then bad food and it's bad that I have to make a choice between eating well and buying diapers and paying rent. I could go off on the inequality of pay vs. work in the US (particulary in Oregon where the minimum wage increased to $8.40 an hour) but that wouldn't be what this forum/website is about.
Anyway, I'll probably pop in from time to time but won't be around like I used to be otherwise I'll just stress myself out about not being able to pursue this when I know it really is in my best interest health wise. Take care and Grok on!
What's for dinner? Dead cow!
