One step at a time, for sure it is. Make sure you celebrate all the little goals in between too. What's your next short-term goal?

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.

Judg --- next mini goal is to get into the 170's. I was very close 2 weeks ago - and then I started going to wrong direction!
marcadav --- The one on River Road by US Bank. La Hacienda Real. YUMMY! Thats pretty close to you!
haven't tried that one. didn't even know it was there. We don't eat out much anymore cuz we can cook better than most places we can afford to eat! We have decided to cut back on the eating out and have committed that money elsewhere. We go out maybe 2 times a month. I'm sure hubby would like knowing that San Diego Taco is a good place.
My nephew mentioned San Diego Taco, when it opened, as my kids were complaining about not being able to get their favorite, California burrito. The Oregon burrito at Muchas Gracias was similar but not quite the same.
Hi Tomi. I love the pictures from your hike. I would love to see trees that big someday!
Mexican food is awesome! The monterey jack cheese at mexican restaurants is the best part.
We eat out very rarely - like once a month at most for an occasional "date". Yesterday we had breakfast out because all we had was eggs. I used up the bacon the night before on dinner. I kept it primal with the exception of knowing my food source. I asked for no oils, sprays or margarines on my breakfast. Not entirely sure they obeyed my request, but I don't have any way to prove it either way. I'll just assume they did.
I like your goal of "just reaching the 170's". Mine right now is to "just reach 184 again". I was at 189 this morning.

Jenn - those tree's were awe inspiring! You should make a trip out west with your family and see the Giant Redwoods in Southern Oregon and Northern Cali. We're going down in Feb for our vacation with the 5th wheel. I'll post pics of that too. Here's another picture that shows a bit more perspective - standing in front of the tree is my nephew and his adorable girlfriend! Mind you, they are about 15 feet in front of the tree so the perspective is a bit off.
There are larger tree's but not close enough to the trail to get a picture.
So -- I'm back on track-ish. Yesterday was stellar! this morning I ate 4 double stuff oreo's. Its okay though - I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I'm determined to get back on track 100% and get to that next goal. I weighed this morning and wasn't happy with the number - not surprised either. The wheat and sugar over the weekend and the difficult hike have definitely caused some inflamation and bloat. I feel puffy. My legs are still a bit sore - but I'm going to walk just a mile today anyway. I'm feeling a bit achy in my joints and muscles so I know the wheat and sugar is wrecking havoc in my cells. So, why did I eat the oreo's ? what a moron! I drank water and tea like a thirsty camel yesterday! I was peeing every 20 minutes for a while! Good think I have a good stock up of tp!
Thanksgiving - we have a confirmed 27. That should be the final count. UGH! I'm pretty resolved to this being our final family dinner due to the numbers growing by leaps and bounds! The first year we offered our home we had only 21 people and that was EVERYONE! This year there are 9 who are unable to attend. We have one baby on the way - and expect one more to be on the way next year. Plus, we still have young adults who aren't married yet - so that could be changing in the next year also. It might be good to look into using the fellowship hall at someone's church next year. I don't know what Christmas will bring next year - we are still gathering at MIL's house - but I don't expect she will still be with us by Christmas 2013. She is getting quite frail. So, someone will have to offer to host or we will have to find a space to hold us all.
I'm sorta in this la-la numb brain place ........... yesterday and today. Its very weird. I guess this is the brain fog that I used to have with the fibro - so must be from the bad eating over the weekend. Another reason to keep my diet clean. I will have to make a mental note of this so next time I'm suffering from a weak resolve I can remember what the consequences are! Pain, bloating, and brain fog. Not good. I don't like feeling this way! I like feeling refreshed and energetic and clear minded. I'm feeling so sluggish I want to call the office and tell them I'm not coming in today. But, that won't do anyone any good either. I have an hour before I really need to get moving so maybe I will go soak in the tub for a bit......... espom salts! I forgot I had some! that will help I think.
I'll let you know............... tata!
