    Getting ready for the weekend

    Primal Fuel
    Thanks for the tips, Siobhan and PrimalCajun. Guess I should learn what jewelweed looks like. I'm at the disgusting crusty stage, and my face is all puffy from pizza-related water retention. Not the look I like to go for. But looks are beside the point today. Eldest is coming back for a short visit, between school and summer job. We're all looking forward to seeing him. I have his favorite (primalized) dinner of Salisbury steak with cauliflower cheese planned. As well as a hunk load of chores to do before I go get him at the airport.

    This was yesterday:
    Up at 6:05
    Vitamins

    10:00 3 turkey bacon cups (cheddar, mushrooms, eggs)
    1 granny smith apple
    2T almond butter

    3:30 22 oz shrimp with
    lime, cilantro, olive oil

    7:00 1 lettuce taco
    ground beef, onion, chili
    salsa, avocado, tomato
    sour cream, cheddar

    Walking: 60 minutes
    Water: 11 glasses

    Bed at 9:30

    Things to notice; I walked for an hour! That's the third day in a row. It is not so much the walking, but the every day aspect of it, that is the challenge for me. I'm trying to plan it, because if I just wait for it to happen; it won't. Today's plan includes biking instead of walking, as I have to get myself to a friend's house for some carpooling action in the evening. I'll ride over, then ride back home in the pleasant night air. Should be down to 80 by then.
    Also, I had a late dinner, due to Littlest's track meet. Wasn't that hungry(see lunch), but ate to be 'social'. Restrained myself to one lettuce-wrapped taco. Very moderate.

    Feels good to have a normal day again. My digestion seems to be back on track after the birthday adventures.

    Thanks, Siobhan, I'll let DIL know. I didn't know that iodine was irritating. I had already advised a saline solution for a gunky eye and now I'm wondering if I should have said non-iodized salt. It's a trick my doctor taught me when my kids were little. He said I could buy the "physiological water" (translation of French term, I don't know what it's called in English) at the drugstore but it was just salt water and I'd be better just doing it on my own. My kind of thinking entirely.

    YAY Walking girl!! I missed out yesterday, but I'll get plenty of movement in about an hour when I'm lugging totes of clothes up the stairs from the basement and out to the truck for the garage sale at my SIL's house for tomorrow.

    Another walker here, I managed 1 1/2 hours yesterday. Just got my sleepy bones out of bed, but my awake time is ahead of me. Yes, the fancy salt water we can purchase here in the drugstore called saline solution is simply salt and sterilized water. Usually 0.9%, which is the approximate concentration I mentioned. Also called 'normal saline.' It mimics the salt water in our own bodies and is used for a variety of purposes, washing, rinsing, given by IV to increase hydration. Can be a cheap way to rinse contact lenses, although it won't sterilize them. I use it to rinse mine, then store them in the sterilizing solution. Save a boatload of $$$$. Again, no iodine, it is irritating. Incidentally, if you have never done a taste test with regular iodized salt and kosher salt or a sea salt, you should - you will be surprised at the difference.

    Oh Sabine! So sorry about the poison ivy. I researched it when we were living in the Carolina's as we had a lot of poison ivy on our place and I was worried about the kids (who were really small then) getting into it. I found some stuff online that is now available at Walmart etc. that people swear by. It is called Zanfel and it is a totally natural product that actually bonds with the urushiol oil that causes the allergic reaction. If you do a google search for it you can also read reviews by many many people who tried all the popular remedies to no avail. Apparently it provides pretty rapid relief and it does not cost much at all either. I always had some in our medicine cabinet for in case. See what you think - but I have only heard good stuff about it, if you can get quicker relief all the better huh?!

    Hope you are back to feeling good soon - including the tummy!

    On the run, but no walking

    Busy day yesterday, with getting ready for Eldest to arrive, then the fun of having him here, then heading out for an evening with my friends. I rode my bike as planned to my friend's, B.U.T. by the time we were done it was so late, I felt lazy, and gladly accepted her offer of a ride home. So I fell short on the exercise. Nice news, I was so busy that I really had no 'down' time to be thinking of food, and only ate when I was REALLY hungry. Was hungry again, by the time I went to bed, but so tired that I did not think about eating, and just fell into bed.

    Here's how it went down:

    Up at 6:00
    Vitamins

    11:45 pot roast, about 2C
    2T spaghetti sauce
    2T sour cream
    mixed with beef broth

    7:00 2 rotisserie chicken legs
    1 1/2C kale with
    bacon and onion
    6 squares dark chocolate (22gC and 4.5g protein- who knew! Never thought about protein in chocolate!)

    35 minutes bike riding

    Water: 12 glasses

    Bed at 11:30

    A bonus was sitting outside for dinner, until the sun went down, and then by candlelight when the storm knocked out the power. Very little artificial light. But, I did stay up way later then usual. Popped up bright and early this morning, though. Which is just as well, as I am taking Middlest for her SATs.

    My co-worker's son is also taking the SATs today. She called to make sure he was up and getting ready and called him a peckerhead!

    LOL, my son took the SAT as well and almost ran out of the house without his ADD meds. Then he forgot about the -1/4pt for wrong answers and made sure he answered every question. He still thinks he did well. God, I hope so.

    Sabine, I get poison Ivy rashes several times every summer. I'm super allergic so I feel you sister. It sucks.

    Busy, busy- no computer time

    I was driving children hither and yon yesterday, and enjoying having Eldest home, so I didn't get to do much journal reading. Looks like it will be more of the same today, so I am anticipating lots of good posts to read tomorrow.

    Here's yesterday:
    Up at 5:30
    Vitamins
    Got some sleep from 8:00-9:00, since my honey lured me back to bed.

    9:00 1C taco meat
    2T sour cream
    1C cauilifower-cheese
    1 brazil nut

    1:45 4oz pastrami
    2oz swiss cheese
    2 slices tomato
    1T mayo, 1t each ketchup and mustard
    1 apple
    2T almond butter

    50 minutes walking

    5:30 1 pork chop
    2C mixed veges- green beans, carrots, mushroom, cauliflower, asparagus, yellow squash, sauteed in
    coconut oil
    2t A-1 sauce
    1/4C cream mixed with
    2T sugar-free chocolate syrup

    Water: 9 glasses

    Bed at 9:30

    My walking was done at the mall. I was taking Middlest and her friend there, and it was piping hot and muggy outside, so it was a good deal all around. Shot into Lane Bryant to look at a gauzy, lacy top they had displayed. The saleslady showed me where they were, but then looked me up and down and said, "I don't think we have anything to fit you here, though."
    !!
    Total flattery, but it made me feel good.

    In the evening my honey, Eldest, and I played a card-based game called Dominion. Lots of fun. I won one round.

    I have already done some walking this morning. You'll be impressed when you read about it tomorrow.

    Off for more frivolity! Hope y'all have a great day.
