May not get to go camping that week. The XO is on leave that week already and if he's gone and I'm gone, there's no one to manage the office. Canio, you wanna fly up on TDY and cover down for me??
This totally sucks. I was getting excited.
I am in complete awe about the number of people who approach me on Facebook wanting to know more about Primal, Paleo and Whole30. A gal I used to work with here on the Island sent me a message via Facebook asking for info on Whole30. I gave her my standard "Go to this website to learn more. Read this book to learn why. If you eat a lot of junk, this will be hard. If you eat a pretty good diet, it'll be easy" shpleal. She says they eat garbage and it'll be hard but it needs to be done.
I bet at least once weekly, someone approaches me. Some follow through, some don't. But it surprises me nonetheless how many "coaching" like conversations I have each week regarding Paleo/Primal. It really does. Either Paleo/Primal is becoming more mainstream, or I'm really good at advertising b/c I never thought I'd see this much activity about it when there are so many posts/comments/conversations going on about Advocare, Shakeology, ACE, and other bullshit diets going on around me.
That's so interesting. I saw that you talk about it on FB. I tend to not talk about it, because people always try to tell me how to live my life. Last year where I worked all the dudes debated diets all the time. There was the short round kid who lost 30 lbs power lifting and doing HFLC and they a) told him he would die of a heart attack from all the fat he ate, and b) always told him that he needed to do more cardio. It pissed me off because it clearly was working for him, but they wouldn't let it go. And the younger guys who did paleo obviously didn't read about, it seems like they got a brief overview from the partners and then went to. The partners who ate Paleo looked amazing. Guys in their 40s looking 10 yrs younger.

I convinced my BIL to try paleo/primal. He's doing pretty good - but is maybe 60/40 at this point. The problem is - he's discovered he can primalize all his favorite desserts. So he's constantly eating cookies and cakes and junk-type primal friendly foods. He isn't going to lose weight doing that. And he really wants to lose weight.

Well, when he comes to you complaining that he's not losing weight, you can impress upon him the importance of not eating primalized goodies.
So, I found out that the new XO has a possible backfill for when he goes on his leave (2 weeks long). If there is a backfill, I will probably be able to take leave.
