    ahhh there you are!! Yes I read about your visit from Debauchery over in GP's journal. Glad that she didn't do to much damage!

    what an interesting job being a silversmith must be! and very creative! And I'm sorry that you lost the ring but how exciting that your fingers are getting so skinny!! You will have to start 'taking in' your rings! lol

    have a good evening!

    I hate "taking in" rings. I'll just have to make some new, smaller ones!

    Here is an excellent article on wheat and the many ways it makes you fat. He discusses how wheat has changed and the chemicals that modern wheat possesses that are addictive and disruptive to our systems. The author also mentions that all the "gluten free" replacement foods are junk - processed and full of chemicals.

    WinenCandy
    GoLisaGo
    Momma Grok
    and, of course, the one, the only, the great Gay Panda.

    Do you have a journal here?
    O my goodness! Thank you!!!

    Yes, I just started a journal yesterday:
    http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread48670.html

    Thank you so much for that list of people to follow! That is really helpful -- I've been wandering, sort of lost, because while I have a nice three-day weekend to browse the site, normally I need to streamline my internet reading, so having the right threads subscribed to will definitely help!

    It's been far too long. I don't know how people who work full time away from home get things done! My temporary job is over and it is time to get back to posting! Thank you, PrimalCajun, for the kick in the butt I needed!

    I have worked at home for 20 years (when I'm not on the road) and am used to having a good dinner on the stove while I work in my studio. I kept this up for the first few weeks of my job, but gradually time for shopping, cooking, and exercise seemed to disappear. I had too much wine each night after work, too much ice cream, and the occasional sandwich during my stint in the workforce. Fortunately, I didn't gain back any of the weight I had lost.

    I have been catching up with things at home and mostly eating primal and exercising, but without the accountability of this journal, I don't feel that I am as primal as I could be. So here I am.

    Now it's time to catch up with all of your journals.

    One thing I noticed during my recent less than primal times:
    I can eat wheat once with not too much effect, just a bit of fluid retention and the wheat cough. If I eat wheat two days in a row I get more cough and swelling, but I ache. Joints, muscles - just stiff and old feeling.

    Remember that, Cave Woman, next time bread or pizza look enticing!

    Don't you just love cooking in bacon fat? Nothing sticks, everything tastes extra yummy. Just had an omelet (cooked in bacon fat) filled with veggies sauteed in bacon fat. YUM!

    Welcome back! I too have noticed that the journal is keeping me in check here and there since I don't want to keep writing about how I failed to be primal

    Working full-time and cooking and exercising certainly is tough. Sometimes I wonder how I do it all. It's easy to just kick off your shoes at the end of the work day and plop onto the couch with that bottle of wine and a bar of chocolate - I do it all the time. Determination vs. akrasia. I'm satisfied when determination wins a little more than 50% of the battles!
