    Primal Fuel
    (That's armoire...) You see, somebody's reading.
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    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.

    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.

    oh......... dang things!

    Had a very productive and busy weekend! Saturday was painting day - but didn't get the job finished - so will have to figure out how to get the furniture moved away from the walls so I can do the last 1/4 of the bedroom, and do the bathroom also. The store sold me too much paint, so I think my garage is going to get a nice coat of paint out of this deal.

    Sunday hubby and I had to do some work - taking and engine up to Portland for repair, and bring home two others to go back in their own boat. That took up a good portion of the day, but we still managed to get out the bikes and pedal a nice even 10 miles! We rode to the AT&T store and talked to the guy about upgrading hubby's very old cell phone. It was a great ride! Pedestrian pathway the entire way!

    It was a good weekend! I've stayed on whole30 foodwise - but had a little rum/diet coke over the weekend. Weight loss is good so far!

    HA! thanks, I knew it had some vowels and an r - I just couldn't get all the right ones lined up in my brain. Sometimes you just have fall back on phonetics!

    Last night I jokingly said to hubby "I need a tummy tuck - will you buy me a tummy tuck?" ........ and in all his adorableness he answered, "sure! what do they cost?" ........... so we grabbed the laptop and started searching. Seems to be anywhere from $5000 to $10,000 depending on what part of the U.S. you live in. Oregon is on the lower side. So, next time I have some spare thousands laying around I'm going to get myself a tummy tuck! (lottery maybe?) Maybe at the end of the year I'll take the bonus and splurge a bit!

    Oh to have a flat tummy again........ *sigh*

    I need to go to work and don't want to - at all. I'm so far ahead on my normal duties that the boss is having to find busy work for me to do. Doctors offices tend to fill up with papers - at least the one I work in does! He wants me to start sorting it all out. throw away the junk - scan and shred the rest. UGH. I don't do that at home - why would I want to do that for someone else? No doubt he'll want to go through it all before anything gets trashed - so maybe he should just do it himself to start with??

    The weather is really perfect today! sunny and warm, but not hot. I would go for a nice long walk but I'm giving my legs a break today - following yesterdays 10 mile bike ride! There were a couple of long inclines - those kill me!

    okay --- here I go .............

    I had the strangest encounter with an old high school classmate. She came into the clinic where I work, and I was gathering her paperwork to put it into the computer and she said I looked very familiar! We started comparing life milestones - and realized we went to high school together, but she was a year ahead of me, and we weren't in the same crowd. She started telling me that she's never been to a class reunion and that our little town held very bad memories for her. Then she started telling me that her mom had been bipolar and untreated and had tried to commit suicide...... Seriously????? I wanted to say "we hardly knew each other in high school, haven't seen each other in 35 years, and you're telling me this, WHY?" It was very odd. She didn't ask me anything about my life, who I married - none of it. I tried to tell her a bit about my life but she changed the subject back to her again. I was very relieved when they called her back to see the doctor! Obviously what had happened in her childhood still very much controlled her. I felt bad for her......... But it was very uncomfortable. Its not like we were old friends or anything - I remember her as the popular girl with the beautiful hair - thats about it.

    Tomi, before getting a tummy tuck, think about it, really. I had one years ago, because the muscles in my belly were so stretched out after 3 pregnancies (and I didn't 'do' small babies, the smallest one is my middle son, who was 8.48 lb, the heaviest youngest son at 10.03 lb) my tummy was literally resting on my legs when I sat down . That was gone after the tummy tuck, but I have a massive scar going from side to side, which is above my underwear, and there's a spot around my belly button that never got sensitive again. So weird, when I'm touched there I don't feel it! And my tummy still has an "odd" shape :s .
