    Primal Fuel
    The size 48s which were slightly snug last week are now comfortable, and I'm on my last belt hole. Time to get another belt!
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    I can now wear a size 12 in my preferred brand of jeans (in others with more vanity sizing i can wear an 8 or even a 6 ), and even the size 10, if a little too snugly.

    And I can wear a bra with a 34 band size without it digging uncomfortable into my skin!

    This week I bought two shirts without trying them on. And when I got them home - they fit!

    I decided to do the PBF self assessment. I have been LHT once or twice a week this last month, but wasn't expecting great results, and when I did the wall squat test, I squatted 75 times then started to lose count and stopped, which is at least 40 more squats than I was expecting to be able to do!

    Okay - this will sound silly but I'm sure we all have some of the - "I'm too busy (spelled lazy) to ..." excuses. Well yesturday I walked my ecstatic dog and 3 yr old around the block. I usually put it off and then don't get to it for blah blah blah reasons. Years ago (and >50lbs bigger) when taking this walk I often stopped half way to rest (it's kinda hilly) but this time it was so easy. Such a simple thing but so glad I've started again - the dog and kid loved it - so much better than leaving him watching TV while I got some stupid chore done. New motto "Leave the mess - go take a walk"!
