We have too many bowls! I bought extra for our dishes, because with 4 people eating cereal almost every day, we went through a lot of bowls. I'm thinking of taking a few to Goodwill, because there's at least 6 of them that haven't made it into the rotation in at least 6 months.
CW-125, part calorie counting, part transition to primal
GW- Goals are no longer weight-related
The clothes thing is getting old. I bought a bunch of dresses in February prior to starting crossfit. One month into crossfit... oopsie, nothing fits thru the torso. I've lost more thru my trunk. The frustrating part is that my lower half has stalled so I am now again, a mash up of sizes. I tried on a gorgeous Calvin Klein sheath dress, size 10. Baggie thru the torso, snug across the thighs. So now I am back in that awkward body shape where clothes don't fit right.
Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!
I keep buying new t-shirts and jeans, but I keep having to buy more. Underwear, too. Right now I have 4 garments hanging in the closet. I put most of my clothes in a garbage bag to give away.
Gripes and complaints about going primal?
I don't really have any complaints about clothes. Since I never threw out my smaller size shirts and jeans. I now just donate out my XXLs and XL shirts, and size 36 - 42 waist pants.
My main complaints are:
1) Hard to eat out when with friends.
2) No one wants to walk more then 3 miles . . . . .
3) Getting ragged on by my friends when I just have a very very small bite of anything grain or rice based . . . . . . even though they are just joking with me . . . . .
4) My hands are colder now . . . . . well, I feel colder in general now. Less insulation
5) Spending way too much money on coffee daily now
6) People asking me, how do you stay so fit while I'm eating my double patty bacon burger lettuce wrapped . . . . haha
I have to shave my strip of belly-hair (pubis-to-bellybutton) when I model. But I'm really proud of it, because it shows all the testosterone I have. Wish I could keep it always. It's grown on me (pun, oh-so-intended ).
Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
I get blunter and more narcissistic by the day.
I'd apologize, but...
In just two weeks of about 90/10 primal, I am now waking up before my Lumie finishes making the sun rise, running up the stairs at the transport interchange, and fidgeting like mad.

Goal - Healthy, lean, happy, somewhere around 9 stone.
Here's my frustration: with all the vanity sizing in women's clothing, I'm worried that the smallest sizes at my favorite stores will soon be too big for me! (I'm 5'1" and have always been petite, but I'm also muscular and my true size really should be a 4 or 6. I get really confused when I have to go down to a 0, because I'm not that small. Where do the small-framed, willowy women shop? Seriously, I can't figure it out.)
The clothes thing is annoying. I have this great pair of shorts that I wore two weeks ago, and they were a bit tight. Tried them on yesterday, and they were practically falling off of me. Oh no! But I'm trying to beat the system by buying a couple skirts that just barely zip. Hopefully they're be just right when I go on vacation next month.
