Been super busy, but I am feeling good lately. I'll just do a quick rundown because soon my family will be home.
FOOD: I've been fixing large vats of primal chili which has become a staple for when I am lazy. I like it with cut fresh peppers, hot and plain green. Yum. We cannot afford grass-fed meat now, but otherwise I think it's very healthy.
I've given up ice cream, but not popcorn or yogurt. I have toned them down a LOT, though.
EXERCISE: I finally got my bike fixed, and I have really enjoyed taking it on short runs around the area after the kids go to sleep. Jen and I also went roller skating. I still got it, and I still love it. We both had a good time. I got plenty of cardio, sprints, and strength-building there. We cannot do it every weekend, because it's an hour away, and because of the kids, but we'll try to go more often than never.
Sleep: Still resent sleep, and don't get enough. But it's better than it had been when last I was whining on the forum.
STUPID MISTAKES: Trying to be much more aware. A few months ago I almost ran over my wife with the car. I now feel very stupid, and am extremely attentive every time I am behind the wheel (as we all should be anyway!)
HOBBY for the MIND: I have realized that I inadvertently started a new hobby: Reading and learning about sociopaths and serial killers. I'm reading my eighth book now. Most of them focused on Ted Bundy, but I also have books on the Green River Killer, Jeff Dahmer, and John Gacy. Very interesting stuff.
I want to read more within the forum, check out other people's threads. Time is one issue, as is inexperience with forums in general. This is the first I've really joined. But I've met some pretty cool people here and would like to know some of you better.
So, there we are. I'm beginning to finally feel like I'm getting this and able to commit to it. I just wish we had more local primal friends. it's amazing how hard it is to find something at restaurants or family gatherings that are not infested with corn syrup or grain products.
