    thanks, Jenn! I need a cheerleader!

    I just got back from a 2.2 mile walk. YEAH ME!!!

    Now - to tackle the paperwork and take it the tax preparer. UGH - I hate tax time.

    breakfast/lunch = 1 whole eggs + 2 egg yolks - cooked all crispy in lots of butter! with a dash of garam masala and cayenne!

    Question - I'm thinking about how to make chicken enchilada's without the flour tortilla.............. you think I could do it with lots of egg and maybe some almond flour? I'm gonna try this weekend........

    Tomi, one thing that works for me is planning "a treat". I also like to tie it to meeting a preset goal. As an example--my goal this month(Feb) was to put the equivalent of 5 miles each day on the treadmill. That meant 140 miles. If I met that goal I told myself I was getting a Padington's lunch sized pizza.

    This "game" I play helps keep me honest, on plan, focused and not feeling deprived.

    Hubby and I talked and decided to sell the 5th wheel and put the money on the mortgage. I also used a mortgage amortization calculator and if we can put ALL of our extra money on the mortgage (meaning my entire paycheck) we can pay off the mortgage by 2020. Thats 8 years early! We'll be 60 years old and mortgage free! So.......... I'm on a mission to make that happen.

    Yesterday was a great food day! Numbers were perfect! And I was down a pound this morning. I walked 2.2 miles yesterday, and 3.2 miles today. That included mowing the grass - which combines lots of movement and lifting (empying the bag) I'm back in the game! YEAH! I hate being off plan. and I hate taking too many days off of my walking - I hate taking ANY days off of my walking.

    My spring goal is clean the shop that I used to make garden art in. Thanks economy for killing that venture! Its filled with all kinds of stuff that I used in the making of the garden art. I need to clean it up and try to sell the peices and parts. Maybe I'll try to do it again someday.

    What a great weekend! fun stuff, relaxing stuff, productive stuff!

    I walked 1.7 miles yesterday. Not my best - but it was something.

    We forgot to fill the hopper on the pellet stove last night and go up to a 56 degree house! Burr! I caved and turned on the furnace to warm things a bit faster.

    I ate almost 100% primal over the weekend........ last night I had a small amount of rice, and 4 oreos. And then promptly had a fibro flare that had me curled into a ball and crying for about 30 minutes. So........ again I need to remind myself that sugar will make me feel like I want to die.

    Sorry about the fibro flare. I can only imagine how miserable that must be. Sugar makes me want to die in a different way (depression!).

    That's exciting about the mortgage & 5th wheel. Wish I had things to sell, but I'll just have to keep picking away at my loans. 7 more years if I don't ever earn less or accrue any other crazy debt! And I should have some EE bonds that mature around that time, too .

    You are doing so great! You have been busy. I know about those damn fibro flares. Mine always take days to go away. Just tell yourself over and over sugar=pain. Keep on rockin'! You are really beating this stuff!
    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

    I've never thought about sugar effecting mood that way, but then it makes total sense when I think about it. At least you've figured it out early in life and can deal with it from now forward! Thats a big plus! As for the loans - they will ease up in time. Pay extra when you can - put the tax refunds and stuff on them - it really makes a big difference in the final pay-off if you can add a little bit here and there.

    I need to have it tattoed onto the back of my hand I think! That way everytime I reach from something sugary I'll see it! Thanks for the encouragement - I need it right now. I'm 12 pounds over what I was hoping to be by this time. I need to kick it in gear and start seeing some weight loss!!!

    I just did my first multi-quote thingy!

    Today was a good day. I got up early, but didn't finish the task I got up early to do. I will finish it this evening - I'm home alone cuz hubby is at his men's bible study. So, I have the next 2 1/2 hours alone.

    I ate eggs for breakfast, had a small snack of cream cheese clouds after work, and am now eating 2 cans of Progresso Light Beef Pot Roast soup - not primal - but only slightly. It is processed but the list of ingredients isn't really all that aweful. It has NO MSG - but it has yeast extract and hydrolyzed vegetable protein (whatever that is) - but it says it contains less than 2% of it. I just didn't have the energy to make dinner tonight. There is enough left over meatloaf and rice for hubby. I'm gonna need more calories so I will have some pork rinds and sour cream later. I need to take something out for dinner tomorrow.

    I'm tired. I'm going to finish up this task and then turn on the TV and do nothing for the rest of the night.
