    Goal weight 115? 120? I'll know when I get there.

    Sometimes I feel like such a delicate little flower and I don't like it! Used to drink coffee like a fiend and didn't think it affected me. No, I just thought that outrageous outbursts of rage, shaking with hunger, and itchy skin were normal for me. It couldn't possibly be something I ate or drank. I just thought I was borderline crazy. And itchy.

    I still like to tell myself that I can handle caffeine occasionally. Yeah, Cave Woman, sure you can, if you don't want to sleep and don't mind feeling cranky followed by worthless and guilty. I never can figure out what the guilt is for, but I sure feel it. Yesterday, one cup of green tea, some wine with and after dinner - ok, two big glasses - and my skin was afire with itchiness. It still kinda is. Skin itchiness can be a normal menopausal symptom, is a common response to caffeine, but is also a major symptom of certain cancers. Guess which filled my mind as I sat up all night scratching?

    It is morning now and common sense prevails. Since going primal, I have lost some weight and released lots of icky stuff stored in that fat. These things move around, deposit elsewhere, and get filtered and removed from the body. The liver, pancreas, kidneys, lymph, and, yes, the skin, all play a major part in this. So I'm a bit over loaded and now I put in some known toxins like caffeine and alcohol. My body is working hard to try to get rid of all this stuff. My lesson to take from this is to be kind to my body and don't give it things that will cause an unpleasant reaction.

    That is my new awareness for stress awareness month. Be kind to my body and don't overload the system.

    Maybe you're more sensitive to alcohol too now? I mean, I feel like it's going to my head even faster than before going primal.

    I second what Candy suggested, as ever since I went primal I can not tolerate alcohol the same at all! Hope things get better soon cavewoman.. ((hugs))

    Thanks, PC and L2B!

    I had a bit of a rough day, and was even driven to eat some cake! Horrors!! but I'm better now, and not beating myself up over my transgressions.

    G'night!
