Happy 4th to those celebrating. Belated Happy Canada Day to any canucks that may read this (really hoping that's not an offensive term).
Does anyone remember a poster who kept a journal here as recent as a year ago: middle-aged woman using IVF to try to conceive, Asian I think, username might've been bird related? She was quirky and kind and I thought of her recently and wondered whatever happened to her.
 As it's nearing my primalversary (technically July 9 I think), I felt comfortable hunting back into my journal's early days to see if I could find that user (couldn't, but didn't look too deeply). It was interesting to see how much I've changed since then. I'm no longer struggling with whats "right or wrong" for my body/in the limits of the Primal Blueprint. I'm MUCH more stable emotionally, and that is only partially due to not living in Boyfriend's parents' attic anymore. My forays into the world of wheat and sugar are very much choices and I no longer feel helpless in the face of a pizza or donuts or cheeseburger (with a bun). There is still a lot I'm figuring out, but that's the human condition. I'm very proud of how far I've come!
Now, to get a body that could be described as "athletic". I believe the exercises I'm doing now will only keep me lean and give me "pretty" muscles (as Boyfriend calls them). Thunder thighs are going to require actual weights. I guess I have a choice to make, but for now, it's just a matter of keeping moving and doing more cardio (because I've avoided it altogether and that is a HUGE weak spot for me, always has been).
