    That's an unfortunate reaction to pineapple.
    I hate it. I can't believe people put in on their pizza?! I mean, what the hell is wrong with plain ol' fasioned 12 pound bacon, 5 pound of ground beef swimming in cheese? Why ruin the harmony with a syruped, bizarro, yellow abominnation like pineapple?!

    Okay, it's not that bad. It's just tastes funny.

    It sounds like you're very much hormonal. You should read this: http://www.sugar-addiction-book.com/book/

    I think that this is a healthy, positive goal. I agree and my goal is similar.

    ... But not as bad as my dad's skis. When he taught me to ski, he wore his old wooden skis with the leather bindings. Talk about old school. The ski patrol was not too pleased to see them, though they were technically legal since they had an anti-runaway mechanism (more leather straps). They asked him not to wear them there again though, heheh.


    Plus it sounds like pretty dissatisfying food. My hubby says if yer gonna cheat it should at least be good. I agreed and told him that's my rule of thumb whenever I pick up guys at bars.
    Sweeeet! I bet you could be skiing right now! Did I metion I have relatives in Bethesda? They are freaking out about the snow right now. Makes us westerners giggle. When you do go fo sho invest in some skis & boots, you don't want to be a gaper! http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=gaper Or you can just demo, but try not to rent skis, they never tune them, they are old, & they will set your din @ a 2 so you will yard sale all over the run.

    Your dad sounds like mine, only way crazier. Leather & wood? That is an antique. My dad rocked his ski pants from when he was on the racing team in the 70s. I swear they were made of the same stuff that they make wet suits out of. They were blue w/ a red racing strip & he went in the halfpipe with them.

    You & your husband are hilarious! I completely agree w/ the cheats motto, but sometimes you just want to be a lazy American & have your food delivered. No dice on this diet.

    Day 118, or the day I discover the dark side of PB.

    What they don't tell you is that PB is like the house of horrors ride in an RL Stein Fear Street book. Once you get on the ride YOU CAN NEVER GET OFF! MWA HA HA HA HA HA This I discovered after a mostly primal Christmas Eve. What was my poison? The sugar. I had a food hangover all Christmas day. Also set my thyroid off. The verdict? No sugar again. Ever. Why did it take me this long to figure that out? My obtuse personality, clearly.

    The Good:
    grass fed standing prime(al) rib
    mashed carrots
    Brussel sprouts
    primal Yorkshire pudding
    salad

    The bad:
    1 glass wine
    honey sweetened cookies

    the ugly:
    plum pudding (we made it a year ahead of time like you are supposed to just for this occasion)
    hard sauce

    So now I am totally reforming. Obviously no one in their right mind can expect to lose weight off what I have been eating on break, so now I have been off fruit for 3 days & plan to give it 2wks, then only occasionally imbibe. Also off dairy again. Really this one is not hard for me, mostly because I have always strictly limited it, even on CW. Limit nuts-I have been baaaaad on my vacation, it's just that they are so convenient. Plus almond flour baked goods are fan-titty-tastic. I'm going to make coconut flour bread next week. Thank Jah for coconut products. My last goal is to try IFing. At this point I feel close to being able to skip a meal, but I also have zero stress, which I noticed really reduces my appetite. Obviously I am a compulsive stress eater. I saw this yesterday while at the RICHY RICH mall. There were so many hot skinny girls, all shining with fresh diamond icing & Botox that I started feeling all gloomy & felt the compulsion to eat. Oh the mall is misery.

    Yesterday:
    B:1 egg, 2 bacon
    L: Nordstrom Cafe outrageously good salmon salad
    S; Sm handful macadamia nuts
    D: Food pile (Primal eating makes meals so nondescript) w/ beef, chard, cauliflower rice, marinara

    Workout:
    Chalean Extreme AKA cougar workout http://www.beachbody.com/product/fit...ean_extreme.do
    New workout DVDs arrive today, hooray!

    My gift to you: Food porn.


    Carrot mash stacked w/ Mark's shrimp cakes & topped with sauteed chard.

    Spicy squash soup w/ chicken

    Hubby's birthday (October). Applesauce sweetened cupcakes w/ unsweetened chocolate frosting that I added 1 T honey to.

    Ugh, everyone in this area panics about snow. I grew up here but with my dad being from New Hampshire, I find it all terribly embarassing. Nobody even knows how to turn into a skid. You skitter an ice cube out onto the Beltway and you get a multi-car pileup, I tellya.

    And this "storm" never even materialized.

    We are gonna look like the gapers to end all gapers. I don't usually even wear a hat -- and my husband will likely be wearing my old circa 1992 ski suit in teal and pink! We'll pretend the pink trim is purple... he gets cold easily and he's skinnier than I am now. :D Although by next winter, I might fit in it again...

    I tended to keep my ski tension set pretty high. One time I crashed so hard that my ski popped off and hit the lift overhead. When I stood up, everybody on the lift applauded sarcastically. It was the proudest day of my life! (I later discovered I had scalped myself in the back of the head with the heel of the OTHER ski. I turned the tension down after that...)

    Yeah, leather and wood. AFAIK these are the same skis he was wearing when he accidentally derailed a train as a teenager, and he's in his late 60s now, so that should tell you how ancient they are.

    When I wanna be a lazy American I sweetalk my husband into acquiring food, preparing it, and delivering it to my desk. (Gee, I can't imagine why he stayed skinny and I didn't...)

    Dance of the Sugarplum Terrors, eh? Condolences. Maybe it'll help to know that you MUST comply, eh? OBEY. OBEY.

    "Food pile" XD Yeah, I know what you mean!

    That is some choice food porn. Carrot mash?

    News Flash! Major health development!

    I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) Let's go through some of the symptoms:

    ____ I'm unable to lose weight with diet/exercise Hello!
    ____ I am constipated, sometimes severely Mystery of broken crap factory finally SOLVED!
    ____ I feel fatigued, exhausted Is that why I am always @ home?
    ____ I have puffiness and swelling around the eyes and face I am totally puff the magic dragon
    ____ I am getting more frequent infections, that last longer does 10+ urinary tract infections & 1 ear infection count?
    ____ I have severe menstrual cramps Um, yeah!
    ____ I experience night sweats don't sweat it is it's petty & don't pet it if it's sweaty. That means not a lot of 2 AM action for me.

    Also leads to sugar sensitivity & emotional mood swings. Turns out my agro episodes are thyROID rage.

    Honestly I cannot describe what a relief it is to now this. Now I know for sure that I am only 50% crazy. I will be treating this homeopathically, as is the way I do, you can judge if you want but it has worked for me for 10 yrs. My body my choice, I don't want to take any western medicine pig thyroid meds.

    Happy New Year!
