    Thank you!
    Today's frustration: Even worse. I turned down pizza, my pre-primal 2nd favorite food. And it was free. And there were so may extras left over that they were begging to give away.
    But I turned it down and it didn't even faze me. Where did my lack of self-control go??? It was such an awesome crutch!

    Whenever I have a problem that makes me worry enough to book an appointment (happens once or twice a year), the problem heals up by the in the 2 or 3 days waiting to see a Dr/Nurse.

    I cannot bear to go without a decent night's sleep any more. If I don't get at least 7 hours, I feel like I'm coming down with the flu and I am in bed right after dinner tha next night. I'm not sure if I just felt so crappy all the time before that I didn't notice the effect of not enough sleep or if eating better has made me into a fragile flower.

    If you are feeling the cold, eat more fatty foods.
    A Doctor who spends months every year at one or the other of the poles, recommended this. (I wish I could get on his list, but then he would be absent most of the year!) I wonder though; did he get that tip from the Inuit?

    Incidentally, the other day I just stocked up with a week' or so supply of expensive, grass fed meat, and wild fish, etc. This afternoon my refrigerator packed up. So now all that lovely food is in the freezer... which I didn't really want to do!

    Oh so many frustrating "frustrations".

    * I feel guilty when I look at people who are trying to be healthy and/or lose weight eating cardboard while I enjoy my delicious meal.

    * It annoys me when during lunch I'm not hungry or don't need even a snack while most of my friends/colleagues are famished and run to the cafeteria for their midday fix. I have to entertain myself otherwise.

    * I also have various old medications from some years back and I have to keep stopping by the pharmacy to dispose of them since they've remained unused and passed their expiration date. So much money wasted.

    Paleo, what you do to me...

    I can't wear jeans more than twice, because they fit out of the dryer with no problem and then get looser. I might have to start wearing belts! I don't like wearing belts!

    I am guessing in a couple of weeks, I will actually need new pants. I tried looking up how many lbs of weight loss = a new women's dress size, but there's no universal rule of thumb. Guess I will find out when I get there.

    ok I have one really "first world problems" Primal rant. My husband splurged when we remodelled the house, and got us a 36" shiny black glass induction hob/cooktop with a fancy stainless steel backsplash. You would NOT believe the mess that a pan full of bacon makes of it, or how long it takes to restore it to pre-bacon glossiness. Our old crappy electric stove was much less stressful (and also 100% crappier). :P

    Don't you know that all the cool kids bake their bacon?
    Seriously. Best thing ever. Put it on a parchment covered cookie sheet, place it in the cold oven and then set to 400˚f. Give it about 20 minutes give or take.

    Get yourself a splatter shield! Like this: Amazon.com: Cuisipro 13-Inch Splatter Guard: Kitchen & Dining


    My frustration as of late is people staring at my lunch. Just 10 minutes ago, my boss came to my cubicle as I was about halfway through my half rotisserie chicken. He said, "Wow... you're going to eat all of that?" I shook my head and took a bite, to which he said, "Wow, I've never seen someone eat chicken with such intent!"

    I'm glad he left by the time I started to gnaw the bits of chicken off of the bones...

    I has an ab, but I'm not young enough or skanky enough to show it off outside of the pool area.
