    good job Jenn!
    Read post #2626
    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    Got an email from the University of Iowa. I was not selected for an interview for the Program Coordinator job. This makes me sad b/c the only other positions I found there that I'm qualified for are admin positions and I'd rather not be an admin til I retire. *sigh*

    Good on the workout, bad on the no new job opp. They're missing out. I know that doesn't really help, but it's true. I hope things improve, soon.

    Evaluating the vitex. 2 capsules a day does not give me the libido surges I'm used to from the 3 capsules daily... but 3 capsules kills my period. I get crampy and all that PMSy crap, but no red death... thinking, since I can't find 200 mg capsule, that I'll try a month of 2 capsules and 3 capsules on alternating days to see what that does.

    I suspect ovulation is taking place currently, which is when I usually have my highest desire on the Vitex, but no desire this week at all. So, expect that in 2 weeks or so the Russian Circus will come to town, at which time I'll try the alternating schedule with the Vitex.

    100 mg of 5-htp still seems to be ok. More than that is not so good - easily annoyed in the AM when I take more than 100.

    All caught up on journals which means nothing to read.... *sigh*

    Slept better last night b/c the kids slept better. Brady didn't come to our room until after 5 and Makenna didn't come in til after 6.

    My sister's learning primal and it's super cute. She called me this morning and was like "Can I have carrots?" Seriously? I asked her "What's a carrot?" She replied "A vegetable". I said, there's your answer. She's one of those who won't read anything (I guess she kind of read It Starts with Food, but not all of it) and would instead rather ask people what is right/wrong with whatever she's dealing with. So I get to answer the "Are carrots ok?" questions. Goofy. I try not to make her feel dumb, and I try not to talk down to her about it, b/c she's my sister... but seriously! Read the dang book! I already told her that meat, veggies and fruits are ok... if a carrot is a veggie, it should be ok, right?

    Sister-in-law is on board for a Whole30 in May too. She said she tried to do the whole "eat what I want but track the calories" thing, but said her acid reflux came back as did her depression. She has decided to do a W30 to "reset" and remember what it's like for her body to feel good again. I'm glad and I hope it helps her feel good again.

    Brad and I are looking at getting new cell phones. We're eligible for an upgrade now. US Cellular has a cool deal where you can upgrade at a discount (the phones we're looking at have a $500 discount on them!! ), without signing a new contract. We haven't been on contract with them for over 2 years now, which basically means we can leave whenever we want without penalty, but we stay b/c no one has offered us anything better... Our new phones will cost us $200... we could get 'free' ones but we don't want any of the free ones... so $200 it is... And I guess there is this new thing that all carriers are doing now where when you get a new phone at a discount, you pay a $35 activation fee. I think this activation fee is bullshit, but what can ya do? I verified with the customer service team that our monthly payment would not change even though we have no contract and they have assured me that we'll remain where we are in price... I'm happy with them - this $35 fee I'm not so happy about, though. Grrrrrrrr... That means my next cell phone bill is going to be $200 to cover our monthly fee and the $70 activation... *sigh* they always get you somewhere...

    Awaiting updated news on the furloughs. Some things that were cut are being reinstated so I think things are changing. For instance, they had cut tuition assistance for soldiers and told us the air conditioning wouldn't be turned on until July 1... they have since reistated the tuition assistance program and sent an email saying AC would be turned on 15 May. This makes me think the furloughs won't happen after all. I'm both hopeful that they eliminate the need for furloughs, but also hope that we still get our furlough days b/c I was rather looking forward to them. Oh well. The extra money we've set aside will be nice to have as well. It will make a nice dent in a credit card I'm hoping to pay off by November.

    It's Admin Specialists Day... what a stupid business holiday. I get a pay check for doing my job. I don't need a card too... Bosses got a card and a potted Gerber Daisy for me. Plus gluten bombs... but I will enjoy them despite being gluten bombs. Whole30 next week will fix it.

    I just posted so you can read mine! Good job on getting the sisters to start eating better! How exciting to have family members on board! Sure wish I could get my sisters doing this. Maybe if I really get this weight off they will see the actual physical benefits of it. ?? I might be healthier on the inside and feeling great - but they only see what is on the outside - so I'm going to show them what Primal and Barre3 can do if they just make a few changes. I am 185 and the smallest of my 3 sisters. Their weights go from about 200 - 320 ish. That's just my guestimations. I would love to see the 3 of them get healthy with me - but I don't say anything to any of them.

    Sounds like you are getting everything under control! i like the casserole. May try a version of it. I have ignored the Boston news. The news medias almost orgasmic portrayals make me sick. I pay just enough attention to know what is happening but other than that I can't handle it. It will be interesting to see if there is a why. I can't imagine it would ever satisfy the horror.

    Do you ever wonder if things like this happened pre-civilization? Or even early civilizations? It is so senseless.

    Okay sorry...see! I just can't handle it!
    You know all those things you have always wanted to do? You should go do them.

    Nah.. I was always aware "they" were out to get me.. even before I became Primal..... Now I can just run faster if they find me-Dino Hunter
