    Primal Fuel
    After my wild hammer session I was so full of energy I went to my favorite hiking trail (right down the road) and ran around in the woods for awhile. I don't ever remember being energized by exercise before. Sure, I was always told I should be energized. Never was, though. Also don't remember ever doing anything that was so fun I didn't want to stop. Usually the pleasure comes from getting it over with!

    Have my video all planned out. I think the Vaughan Williams might be a little too esoteric, but REM's Shiny Happy People is a really good tempo and suitably upbeat. Clothes: slightly loose khaki or olive green knee length cargos and a form-fitting but not overly revealing black tank. Barefoot or fives, of course. Loose, wild hair. Would be really, really cool to find a 70-something primal lady to star in this. Workout is a combo - classic powerlifting moves, hammer swings and some propulsive stuff. The lady will smile right into the camera and say, "If a fat, frumpy, sick, __year-old female can get primal, get hard, and get happy, so can YOU!" Would be great to flash a "before" pic at some point.

    I would like to thank the Academy, and all the little people who helped me on my way...

    I'm on a Thai-flavor kick these days. Had a fabulous dinner. Started off with a salad of fennel, avocado, cilantro, parsley, and lime. Made up some coconut milk broth as I described above and ate it with a very large amount of haddock, cilantro, lime, cashews, and scallions. I've been eating a lot of cashews lately, for some reason I am craving them. I don't think I have mentioned haddock, which is wild-caught, fresh, readily available, and relatively cheap here. Really nice fish. Also some roasted beets, which taste like candy. I will say they didn't go well with the fish and Thai flavors.

    I was thinking how horrible this food is and wondering how I will manage to eat this way for the rest of my life.

    Also want to document that I had an all-around great day. After my hike I walked around this property where I live - my landlord owns a very large and very beautiful acreage right on the water. I went down to the waterfront and hung out there for awhile. A beautiful cool and sunny autumn day. Felt great, ate well, moved slowly, lifted heavy things, played. What more could anyone want?

    Hey Siobhan! I am going to have to try your soup. I've been meaning to start cooking a little Thai myself, since my kids hauled me off to a Thai restaurant some time back and I fell in love.

    Too bad about the patient being a smoker...

    I had been thinking of making some moussaka too, but the eggplant was over-ripe and I'm not feeling too well, so it's getting turned into a spaghetti sauce instead. Which I am about to go eat as soon as I'm finished with journals.

    You're back! I hope you had a nice holiday.

    Completely different topic - my hair loss has stopped. I'm just losing the normal amount, not the handfuls of a few weeks ago. I think my doctor was right. CW docs do know some things. The hair loss started just about three months after I went primal cold turkey. My hair follicles 'reset' and now I will get a new head of hair! Despite my distress over the amount in my comb, my hair doesn't look any different, if anything it looks thicker which I know seems impossible. One more thing with which to credit primal.

    Ah, nice to know. I had similar things happening when I was pregnant. At one point my husband asked me if I had cut my bangs, because there was so much new growth coming in together.

    Yep, he said that is the classic example, after a woman gives birth she often experiences this phenomenon. Obviously hormones play a big role. Since I also started getting periods again, I think this mystery can be stamped "Closed." Even through the falling-out period I noticed new growth, particularly in the front - well, that is where you would notice it, isn't it?

    I'm awfully glad I'm not going bald.

    Here I am at work. Feeling very horrible, undervalued, put-upon, badly treated. Trying not to feel this way but can't help it. Wondering what else I could do to earn a living. I just can't get all the pieces together - I have a great place to live, but the job stinks.

    I suppose its good that IF is easy when I am feeling low like this. Not the remotest urge to eat.

    I'm sorry you're feeling that way about your work, particularly when everything else seems to be going along so well. I hope it gets better for you!
