    Here I am at work. Been pretty busy for awhile but have a minute now. Really good night though, routine stuff, nice people, not too stressful. Shouldn't say that too loud.

    Primal pluses

    1. It is great to not be hungry all of the time
    2. My skin is clear and looks great
    3. GERD and reflux totally gone. I thought it was stress!
    4. Lower back pain gone
    5. Right knee pain gone
    6. Wrist pain that I have had for 15 years is gone - this is incredible
    7. I've gone down a size even though I've only lost 3 lbs

    Well, that is seven things and any one of those reasons would be enough to stay primal.

    Had a big salad (all veg) and lamb & mushroom stew. Really delicious - I cooked the lamb in the broth from the chicken tikka masala. Feeling good, full of energy, mind is clear, no cravings.

    I've been wondering about Primal Fuel. I've never liked that type of thing but maybe I should reassess my prejudice. Could be a convenient thing for work.

    Just had a very delicious cup of curry chicken coconut soup. I should have bought a vat of the stuff! Completely primal. I love that the food co-op posts complete lists of the ingredients in their foods.

    I've spent way too much time on the computer lately and my upper back has gotten very sore. Seems to be a bit better but I had better watch my computer time. How do people work on them all day, every day? I know that many people here probably do.

    I heard on npr this afternoon that Maine is the happiest state in the union, and I immediately thought of you. It must be true!

    Are we the happiest state? That doesn't surprise me. We have a lot to be happy about here! I'm not a native Mainer - in the vernacular, I am 'from away.' But this is a great place to be.

    Thanks for coming by, longing2bft! I will check out your recipes, it is really fun learning to cook these different foods and best of all, not having to feel even remotely guilty about eating the results.

    Today I have eaten some ground beef with onions and tomatillos, some kefir with a banana and coconut, and a bottle of kombucha. I think have forgotten to mention that I have been enjoying some beautiful juicy raspberries the last couple of days, all gone now. I can't wait for June when we will have our local raspberries. We aren't very good at growing grapes here, but we grow berries like mad. The farmers markets will be opening soon, that will be great. I'm in a CSA and might join another. It is really fun to go to the market and load up a basket and it is already paid for! My employer picks up half the cost, so it is an unbeatable deal.

    Well, I'm at work and I had better get to it -

    You might be "from away" but you're saying "we" anyway. Sounds like you're putting down roots...

    But of course it stands to reason that Maine is the happiest state. It's almost surrounded by Canada. LOL!

    Yep, we consider Canadians to be honorary Mainers. (Don't let them hear that!) Actually we have a Canadian who works here sometimes - he drives five hours, works two 12-hour shifts and goes back home. He is almost always referred to as "The Canadian" which is non-PC but is meant as an endearment - he is very well liked - as in "It's time for lunch, be sure to tell The Canadian."

    Not too busy patient-wise but I found an opportunity to move around a lot. I took out the recycling in the whole hospital and just about filled up a dumpster. We have zero-sort recycling here, so it all goes together. Gathered up all the returnables to take to the animal shelter. We have a lot of returnables here and most of it gets deposited in charity boxes for boy scouts, art associations, schools, etc. I usually take them to the animal shelter because it is on my way home, but I spread them around too. Then I cleaned and set up a lot of equipment. About an hour of moderate activity and some lifting/carrying of heavy things.

    I was reading Sabine's Sexy thread over in Odds and Ends because I have been thinking about this a bit more than usual. People are telling me I look different already. I think it is mostly because my skin looks nice - really nice now since I started slathering it with coconut oil before I go to sleep, and nice and clear. I also tend to show weight loss first in my face and neck. But one important thing is that I am now pain free, not shuffling like an elderly person. This probably comes from spending too much time watching my cats, but I so admire the way they walk - so effortless and graceful with that suggestion of tremendous power. My foot strike is different now that my knee and back don't hurt and I notice my feet don't make much noise now. Before this you could hear me coming a mile away!

    I have the classic film Au hasard Balthazar and I might even get to watch it. I mostly watch older films, so many classics I haven't seen. I saw a really good one earlier this week called Obselidia - and indie film a couple of years old, I think. Really, really thought provoking and led me to read the classic short story Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius by Jorge Luis Borge, and several analyses of this work. The story explores the theme that ideas can become manifest in the material world. Great stuff.

    Well, I think it is time for tea -

    LOL! Anybody can look at a map and see that Maine belongs in Canada... Behave well enough and we'll consider you honorary Canadians. ROFL!

    Don't know the movies whereof you speak, I am afraid. Okay, I studied literature and even I don't read analyses of things very often. I'm impressed.

    I've been thinking a lot about stripes lately. I'm about as far from a fashionista as you can get, but I can't help but notice that stripes are everywhere - horizontal stripes at that. I love them. After years and years of being told not to wear stripes because they will make you look fat or are unflattering or something, I am embracing stripes. So they make me look fat? So what? Like I can hide? Like I'm going to fool anyone that I'm a fashion model if I wear black all of the time? I'm going to wear what I bloody well want - stripes, maybe plaid. I have plaid shoes, I love them.

    I'm starting to get inspired to go through my closet and get rid of loads of stuff.
