    Make sure the oils are meant for the bath. I've had a rash for 3 days.

    Is falling asleep at 8:30 primal?

    If so, I've got that covered. Seems I can't sit down on the sofa in the evenings anymore, without dozing off. Once I finished putting up all of Littlest's laundry (did it ALL yesterday, and as she is a teenage girl, you can only imagine!) I sat back to enjoy a little James Bond. Conk. Didn't even realize I was asleep until my Honey woke me up to come to a real mattress.

    This is how yesterday went:

    Up at 6:30
    Weight:208.5

    A de-tox bath

    10:00 Shakshuka with
    2 bratwursts and
    2 eggs

    1:00 LARGE salad with
    chicken and ranch dressing while out with friends
    (No bread though, I threw it off my plate as quickly as I could)
    1C ice cream with cookie crumbs in it
    (refrained from slurping up the chocolate sauce that was drizzled all over the plate)

    6:30 1 1/2C baked cauliflower with turkey chunks

    Walking: 20 minutes
    Water: 11 glasses

    Bed at 8:30ish

    In spite of the ice cream, I feel it was a good day. I am very pleased about the water consumption. Just one day of that is enough to make me feel back on track. And I walked a little! I'm meeting a friend again today, to go yarn hunting for a joint project, and then watch an episode of 'Upstairs, Downstairs', but after that I'm planning a walk to the post office. My sister-in-law forgot a few items. That's a 35 minute walk, there, and if I go to the store in the other direction for milk, that will be another 30 minutes.

    Did I mention how marvelous it is, having a kitchen sink drain that works again ?!? You just pull out the stopper and the water goes away! No taking it anywhere by yourself. Civilization is wonderful!!! Of course, that's less heavy lifting, but for this, I'll make an exception. No trying to fit more bailing into my life. I'll stick with the minimum!

    We got to talk to Eldest last night. They will be here late on the evening of the 12th!

    Another potato thread?

    Already got chuckles from this one, though.

    ...later...

    Oh my goodness. That's all I can say.


    ...and again...

    You can just copy some of these posts and fit them right into the 'Funny CW' thread. Or maybe '30bananas'.

    ...heeheehee...

    Just can't stop myself from going back. Did I just read that? I believe I did. "[You're eating the right amount of calories to maintain. You'll need to eat less. But be sure you eat until you are full.]" You can't make this stuff up.


    ...people chow?...

    And yet I keep going back! BratKat inserted a note of normality. Good to read someone who had good results without being wild about it. It WAS interesting that BratKat saw the best results two days after returning to primal-normal. Oh, wait...am I being sucked in!?!...Must stay away!

    I need some of that primal! Going to sleep at 8:30 sounds like heaven ... I used to do that long ago before being married and having kids. I was working really hard physically and was up with the sun in the mornings, by the evening I would be pooped, shower and crash and be up at about 5 the next morning - I loved it!

    I did the bath - skipped the oils. It felt wonderful. I may do another this morning.

    Yeah for the new car!!! I've been trying to convince my son to buy a Soul for MONTHS! He needs a new car! Let us know how you like it as you settle in and get used to it.

    Congrats on the number on the scales!

    Food thoughts

    I ate breakfast at 9:00. A good, hearty breakfast.

    Felt some hunger at 12:00, but it wasn't convenient to eat. By the time I got home, I had forgotten/didn't feel hungry.

    On the way back from the grocery, though, here comes hunger again, with a dilemma.

    It was 2:30, and dinner is planned for 6:00.

    Do I eat a full lunch, a small lunch, a snack, or nothing? I listed the pros and cons:

    Full lunch- It would satisfy me now, and be healthy: I might not be hungry for dinner, but would eat it nevertheless.

    Small lunch- It might not be enough to fill me up: it might be just right! A small dose of meat and veg.

    Snack- Could be just enough to tide me over: coming at this time of day, it might set me off into 'snacking' mode.

    Nothing- I could just eat the fat on my body: I'm hungry!

    Decided on a small lunch, and in figuring out how I will get a SMALL amount of meat and veg, I decided on turkey slices rolled up with boursin cheese and cooked mushrooms inside. Typing this up while the mushrooms cook. I thought it was a good bit of listening to my body and trying to figure out a food plan for the moment.

    Oh, so I suddenly realized it has been a week since I got back on track. My scary Q was 214.5, and I am at 208.0 this morning. So 6.5 pounds of bloat. Now I'm ready for some slow and steady downward action.

    Yay on the new car and the fixed sink drain! AND THE LOSS WOOHOO!!!!

    If I would go to bed at 8:30-9 when I feel the most tired, I would feel better. I usually push through, stay up too late when the hubs gets home and then have to nap on Saturday.

    Excellent weight loss for a week! woo hoo!!! And nice choice on the lunch dilemma Lately if I have to make that kind of choice - I opt for a small snack of something high fat - like almonds or almond butter - then REALLY enjoy my next meal to the fullest!
