27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

Winterbike: What I eat every day is what other people eat to treat themselves.
TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

Morning glories are weeds, but I love them. They completely take over my parents' yard in September.
Current interests - Starting Strength (reading it very slowly)
While the flowers on the morning glory vines are pretty enough, I'd like more variety in my flowerbed!
Honestly, if it covers the ground and doesn't have burrs, thorns or stickers, it's pretty enough to stay in my yard.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Latest Journal
The realization that most people hate their lives. Working jobs they don't like, to buy things they don't need, to mold themselves into something that don't want to be.
I'm not depressed about this. But It's something I don't want to EVER be. I'm thinking on dropping out of my university course which I just started. I'm not passionate about it. I'm thinking ill get a job, that isn't too mind/life destroying. Work, then travel. A LOT. Find out my passions, then do it.
Being stuck in a car filled with people who are trying to make me eat Mcdonalds.
''How about an icecream?''
''Okay, what about a coke?''
''No, I'm good thanks''
And then they get offended!
Just can't win.
My GOTD: my computer won't start, 2 days before I can get my new one!! I can't play the Sims 3 while my daughter is with her dad! Grrrrr
