    Primal Fuel
    It's 4 pm and I'm starting to have the slightest inkling of being hungry. I have a minimum hour and a half before I get home. And then probably another hour before I can have dinner ready. Not even sure what I'll make tonight. Maybe I'll pick up some sirloins on the way home. DH has been bugging me for a sirloin. Well, he can have a sirloin... I'll have a ribeye.

    Then I'll steam some broccoli and he can have a baked potato. Now, for the kids... maybe I'll get them some beef patties. Sounds like a winner to me!

    W30 starting weight: 206.x (Friday)
    Current weight: 201.x (Wednesday)

    Since Friday, I have lost 5 lbs. That's a total loss of 16 lbs on Primal, 20 lbs for the year. I am stoked.

    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.

    I was pretty excited to see the scale read 201 this morning and texted DH. He came back with "I can really see it in your face. Noticed it last night. You little stunner you!" lol what a funny guy. I noticed it in my face too, but thought that it just looked thinner b/c it got a lot of sun this weekend.

    I'm feeling a little tired today but the kiddos woke a few times last night. DS found his way to our bed before 11:30 even hit... I was too tired to take him back to bed. DD woke up at 11:30, and again at 12:00. I ignored her at 12 and she went back to sleep quickly. But DS took up a lot of room last night so he disrupted my sleep. Somehow we have GOT to break him of this habit of coming to our bed. *sigh*

    But, I'm not falling asleep at my desk tired, so that's a plus. Just feeling pretty yawny.

    huh... not much to report. I hope everyone's having a great day today. It's Wednesday. It's all downhill from here til we hit the weekend! Hooray weekends!

    Jenn - the best way to stop children from coming into your bed at night is to just take them right back into their own room, tuck them in, give them lots of love and reassurance, and then tell them this is their very own special place and they need to stay there. It takes firm consistancy, and determination - but can be done. Good luck! Remember it builds self reliance and self confidence for them to be able to sleep in their own bed, and not need to come sleep with the parents once they wake during the night. Maybe find some kind of reward that you will give him in the morning if he stays in his own room all night long.

    That would work if he hadn't become so sneaky that he climbs in without waking us. He used to wake me every time, but not since Primal is doing its good things to my sleep. And we have a memory foam bed that barely moves when someone's moving about. Drawback of having such a large bed I suppose... he can climb in without touching either of us... lol

    I'm starting to feel hungry but I really don't feel like having leftover steak and broccoli. I had decided to make tacos for dinner and now all I want is some salsa! lol

    hum.............. quiet and sneaky! I'd love to be a bug on the wall watching all this happen! Purhaps try hanging some bells on your door knob (assuming you close your bedroom door at night) that doesn't apply if the door is open for clear passage. You might just try closing the door and adding some bells that will wake you if someone enters the room. Not good for your sleep for now - but great in the long run........ do you close the kids' doors at night? you could put the bells on their doors so you hear when they are on their way and can stop them midway. ??????

    Nah, we all sleep with our doors open. I know the kids would freak if their doors were closed. Tried this with naps and it ended in panicked kids.

    Bells on our door might work though. Good idea.

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Day 6 is complete. Total weight lost: 5 lbs.

    B:
    4 sausage links
    2 boiled eggs
    vitamins

    D:
    taco meat (deer and pork mixed with McCormick Mild Taco Seasoning - all natural ingredients)
    Shredded iceberg lettuce
    Salsa - sure did miss the cheese and sour cream

    Weight is up 1 lb today. Must be the sodium in the taco meat. I don't expect it to remain long.

    Movement: 30 minute walk with work friend. General house stuff

    I'm think I'm doing ok. My food choices are spot on. I discovered late yesterday that I forgot to take my antidepressant. Aside from some mild withdrawal symptoms I've felt fantastic so I didn't take it again today. My problem is more anxiety than depression. Primal has allowed me to reduce my dose in half and I had planned on fully eliminating the medication anyway through the Primal Blueprint. Told DH that I failed to take it yesterday. He made a joke about getting old and needing one of those pill minders. lol I told him that I'm thinking my body is no longer in need of it if I'm not subconsciously making it a priority to take it and he agreed. So, I didn't take it again today to test myself and see how I feel. I have no significant stressors in my life anymore (like I did when I started taking it) so I think it'll be a good experiment.

    Ok, busy day so gotta jet. I have a paper due tonight and two discussion questions for another class. Busy busy day. Thank you procrastination!
