    I have sinned, but it's okay - it was all primal sinning. I went to the gallery opening and there was an unbelievable spread of primal food. Pulled pork. Shrimp. Olives. Peppers stuffed with bacon. Smoked salmon. Prosciutto. Melon. Deviled eggs. (Okay, those aren't totally primal.) No potatoes at all. I ate freely and had a glass of wine. Chatted with friends and enjoyed the wonderful art. Looked at people and what they are wearing. Everything from fleece vests (this is Maine) to tight black skinny jeans to ethnic from head to toe. Flowing grey locks of hair, crew cuts (on the women). I may have mentioned there are a LOT of artists around here. A lot of really fine artists. Great show, great time.

    In looking at my clothes today I realized that I have plenty of clothes for a regular office job. Now that I fit into stuff, I have a good supply of classic garments that I could fit into everyday workwear. Something to consider.

    Hi Siobhan, Just wanted to say I started reading your journal yesterday evening and read way later than I intended. This is a problem with the forum and blog - can conflict with the get enough sleep rule Anyway, thanks for sharing your experiences (many of which sound familiar - both the good and the bad) and for your encouragement. Much appreciated!

    Thanks for stopping by! I have the same trouble - so many journals, so little time. So many times I have meant to spend 5 minutes and then a couple hours later....you know...

    I enjoy your journal a lot, I hope you will keep up with it.

    Feel great this morning. Woke up naturally at 5:30 AM, had a peaceful start to the day. It was still dark. I made a cup of tea, lit some candles and read my prayer book by a small booklight. Classical music on the radio. Sun coming up through the skylights. It was very nice.

    Had two fried eggs and a chicken sausage for breakfast. Long morning at church but I feel up for it. And work tonight.

    Yes, but inquiring minds want to know if you wore the planned outfit or not. I know, I'm shallow.

    Everyday workwear? As in, for a different kind of job than the current one?

    The only pulled pork I've ever had was made by members of my DIL's family. I found it way too sweet. Blech. But it has potential for being really good without the yucky stuff in it.

    I put a pork loin in the slow cooker with garlic powder, chili powder, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Cook on low 10 hours and shred. It's delicious by itself, on a salad, in eggs........not sweet at all.

    I really need to get a slow cooker. That sounds great!

    Yes, I wore the planned outfit and got raves. Yes, I did. Both for my new figure and for the clothes. These people recognize things like this. I will admit that it made me feel terrific to know that I looked good and my clothes were really nice. I haven't worn anything so form-fitting in years. The skirt is so beautifully cut that it is comfortable to wear and to walk in despite being rather narrow. That shop can make my clothes anytime! Like that will happen!

    Alas, we did not sing very well. We weren't polished enough, the ending to our anthem was a bit of a disaster. All coming in at the wrong time...in the wrong key...not just me...I actually did okay, thanks to my sitting next to the only soprano who had a clue.

    Yes, I am thinking of a career change. The morale is rock-bottom at work, everyone, not just me. Very difficult and soul-sucking environment. I went into healthcare because I needed a good secure job with benefits. Thought I had one, but cuts and problems are everywhere.

    And I am all primal again. Journalled my food today and came up with good macros. This is a must going forward until I reach my goal. Also reintroducing smoothies as I mentioned above. Those really give a nice shot of good quality protein. I remember watching a talk by a scientist who did a diet study - he is a long-time vegetarian who was pained to admit the Dr. Atkins had it right - and he mentioned that protein is the hardest macro to keep up long term. And guess what normally replaces it...you guessed it...carbs. And the smoothies are really good. Just about as good as ice cream IMHO.

    I really, really, really like being primal. I feel so great.
