    I used to take MCT 1TBSP at a time (One at breakfast and one at lunch) what I've found is that 2TBSP in the morn really sparks my physical and mental energy then gives me a nice mental high for most of the day. I feel much sharper taking 2 in the morning then spreading them out in the day.

    Ecks, do you have anything that roughly corresponds to a woman's purse? You know, messenger bag, brief case, computer bag, back pack? If so, stock it with jerky or nuts or something to bail you out in emergencies like that. I used to keep granola bars in my purse for that (well, I still do, but it's for homeless people, or non-Primals going through a sugar crash).

    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

    Was not expecting this, but it made me chuckle. Cause honestly, what else are we going to do with granola bars?

    @Judg Hah! I don't carry a murse... :P Good ol granola?

    @Dashfire- the book study group chose "Dating with Pure Passion"- it takes a biblical take on how god wants us to find/bild both dating and non dating relationships. I personally bought 2 books today- "Heat Rises" and "Deadly Storm" both written by ghost writers with the author listed as the fictional character "Richard Castle" (yes from the TV show). Heat rises has been good so far as far as story. The writing could use a bit of work though.

    Yesterday

    Breakfast: 4 eggs scrambled with sour cream, 5 slices of bacon

    Lunch: Leftovers from Bhimas

    Dinner: 4 hotdogs (I was going to be late for bible study because i fell asleep after work)

    Supplements: 2tbsp MCT, 6000ui of Vit D

    Excercise: very little


    Today

    Breakfast: (At angels diner for fathers day) 2 side orders of polish sausage. 2 cups of black coffee

    Lunch: Wasn't hungry... tummy was angry at me because of breakfast... i think the sausage was cooked in vegetable oil...

    Dinner: Chicken breast. With "Dad's" Lemon, rosemary, garlic BBQ sauce, salt, and fresh ground chipoltle pepper spice finished with a sprits of lemon juice and a sprinkle of parstley.. On the side: sliced tomato with olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon and sour cream with fresh dill.


    And my BAS was so colourful that I thought it deserved a photo: Spinach, strawberry, cherry toms, orange peppers, yellow peppers, peeled cucumber sticks, cucumber skins (yes, I've separated the skin and cuke and put them both in). Topped with a balsamic/olive oil dressing


    Dessert: One of those organic coconut bar's that alesse has been buying... had to try one and it was delicious!

    Exercise: Just a crap load of errands today.

    Just a quick update and then I'm out... My computer was wigging before church so I couldn't update then. Weighin Sunday. Down to 266.4! That's completely on par with my 1.5lbs a week drop that I've set as around my pace. I did a calculation about 2 weeks ago that if I can maintain 1.5lbs a week for the rest of the year I'll have an 11lb buffer for my new years eve goal so that makes me quite happy! I'll update my signature too! I'm quickly encroaching the 70lbs mark... 3.4lbs to go!

    Jo! I miss calculated! The site I used to see how many weeks there was left in 2012 was actually counting down to Jan 20 2013 I only have 8lbs buffer not 11. Why would this Countdown to Jan 20, 2013 12:00 Noon in Orlando come up when searching "countdown to 2013" in microsoft bing? so not cool!

    @Judg I'd so be down for cooking for you!

    @Candy Strawberries are a must have in salad! You won't regret it!

    Food yesterday

    Breakfast: Some kale chips (3-4)

    Lunch- Egg and tuna scramble (4 eggs, 1 can tuna), 3 slices of bacon, 2 squares of G+B 85% dark, some pork rinds

    Dinner- IF

    Supplements- 2tbsp MCT, 6000UI VitD

    Exercise- Gardening and Home repairs with my dad (it was after all father's day!). 6.5 KM barefoot walk with my room mate + Swinging at the park for a half hour.
