Journal on depression/anxiety
Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
I no longer eat food that comes in boxes, so I never have any small cardboard boxes to use for craft projects. Now, when I need cardboard, I have to go digging in my neighbors recycling bin.
Yup, Primal is expensive.
I share a small apartment with two other students and our fridge is very small. When I ate lots of pasta, rice, and take-out I had plenty of places to store non-fridge related food. Now everything I buy is going into the fridge or freezer. I need to make trips to the store or farmer's market 3+ times a week! I am a full-time student and I work 5 days a week. Cooking usually involves a trip to the store, prep, cooking, eating, and washing dishes which can take close to two hours when all is said and done.
I have actually managed very well, and I do enjoy taking time out of my day to shop for different vegetables and cook different meals. But when it gets to be midterms or finals (or when I'm a little lazy) it can get challenging. I have largely cut out social life except for girlfriend related excursions, but luckily I get plenty of social interaction as a bartender.
I have a cold. I used to get them ALL the time. I haven't had one in well over a year since being primal.
I have NO tolerance for them anymore! I'm so annoyed with feeling crappy. It's my fault, I cut way back on my vitamin D3 and now I am paying the price.
Primal made me a wimp
Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
...Waiting for work-sponsored biometrics results.
We did the testing on the 2nd and still don't have the results back. I DO know that my BP was 120/78, I've lost 6" off my waist and 10" from my hips, but I'm REALLY interested in the lipid panel and A-1C results.......
They called me the very next day last year because my results were so horrible that I'm sure they thought I was gonna drop dead any moment -- (which I'll give 'em because my BP was 138/92, my A-1C was 7.1 and my BMI was over 45!!)
Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

70 is the new 50--without the hot flashes!
Goals: Feel good, be stronger, and hopefully kick that arthritis in the backside! Oh, yeah, and losing more weight would be okay, too.
