    Found Paleotrack to use for food journal - pretty cool. I put honey in my tea and ate a banana - when I dialed it all in, I was horrified at the carb/fat/protein ratio! Ate another egg with butter to help even things up. But I don't want to get too hung up on numbers at this point. I like the pie chart - really illustrates how easy it is to underestimate how much a bit of honey and a starchy fruit like a banana can add up.

    Walked barefoot for half an hour - hope I didn't overdo it. Feet feel good right now.

    Well, better get to work, got some stuff to finish up before I go home. Today I did not make the mistake of not eating. I will be sure and note how I feel when I wake up this afternoon (like I will be able to avoid it).

    I've just started to think about IFing as I have only been primal for almost 4 months. Today I had to drive my daughter to school and have now decided that I'm not hungry, so have missed breakfast and will wait till lunch. I can't do this on a work day otherwise it makes me too crabby with the children - not good. The weather here is foul. Driving rain, very squally and unpredictable. Horrid. Usual crazy April in England and (hard to believe) we currently are in 'official' drought and have had hosepipe bans from the 4th April!! Since then it has done nothing, nothing but rain all day and everyday. So I fired up the PC for some planning (school work for next week) probably interspersed with bursts of hectic cleaning! Sort of multi-tasking but more like balanced serial activities?
    Your day sounds much calmer.... x (Hahaha)

    I thank Fathead for getting me onto primal. It is an eye-opening movie, and really gets you thinking. He has two other dvds: 'Big Fat Fiasco' and 'Science for Smart People'. Well worth watching. And his blog posts are great reads. (Why yes, I AM a Tom McNaughton fan. Why do you ask?) Yesterday I was wearing the t-shirt I got from his website, even: Wheat is Murder, with a graphic of the Grim Reaper holding a stalk of wheat. Yay, Fathead!

    Scrambled eggs work very well in the microwave too. You can cook some veggies in the bowl with some butter before adding the eggs if you want, also works very well.

    I suppose Fathead is available online?

    The cost on his website is very reasonable. I like to buy when I can, to support people who are doing good work like this.

    Hulu is blocked in Canada too. I tried, just in case there had been a change since last time I checked Hulu out, but no.

    I saw it on Netfl*x - I have the streaming only. I can't wait to see his other films.

    Late yesterday afternoon, I had literally just gotten out of bed (remember I work nights) and houseguests showed up! They called, we were chatting, and then they announced they were in my driveway! Whoo! Would you believe I have them eating primal? Last night lamb, mushrooms, salad, sweet potatoes; this morning scrambled eggs, bacon, heavy cream in their coffee. They told me an enlightening story of their vegan-for-20-years boss who cycles 20 miles to work every day who just had a quadruple bypass at age 62. (Guess that's working for him, huh! Snark snark) Well, back to the guests, more later -

    LOL! I had a dinner guest last night, and she got primal too. And enjoyed it... I did not trust myself to make a side of rice and not eat it along with her.
