    Primal Fuel
    Here I am at work. All good here, taking a little break. Got some really nice herb tea, it's called Gypsy Cold Care. I don't have a cold, but warm and comforting sounded nice. Elderflower, yarrow, peppermint, hyssop, rose hips, cinnamon, ginger, clove, licorice.

    Ate too many carbs and in addition to being hungry an hour later, I had serious brain fog. Too many carbs are not my friend. How did I go through life like that?

    Hey, I scored some Meyer lemons! HURRAY!!!! Finally! Also got some raw milk. Haven't had any for awhile, but allergy season is coming up so it might be prudent to partake.

    Both DH and S2 have bad allergies right now. Since I started immunotherapy and PB not only was this the best winter ever for my asthma (no antibiotics and no oral, IV, or IM steroids - first time in 5 years) and I'm not having any allergy issues. Hard to tell if its one causing more effect than the other, so I'm choosing that they are working synergistically together. Especially since my asthma/allergy doc can't believe how well I'm doing!
    Female 52 travel for business monthly
    Starting wt: 198, Goal: 135, Current with PB: 160
    Started at a size 16 down to loose 10

    With PB my asthma has improved, low back pain is gone, & I've got more energy

    Eating a strict Paleo diet has eliminated my sons extremely bad seasonal allergies and his constant nasal drip and phlem problem. AND completely cleared up his acne And, he lost 140 pounds. Paleo/Primal ROCKS!

    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.

    That is fantastic! He should be a Friday success story, or maybe he already is?

    No - he isn't a part of the MDA world. I could write up his story and send it in though

    Since I worked last night, I slept in my cave today. It has occurred to me that I have not had a hot flash in my cave. Maybe I should sleep there all of the time. It is decidedly cooler there, for one thing. Maybe that is what I need? My home is not overheated by any means, but who knows what triggers these things?

    Everyone read Mark's guest post today? Go read it! Some really good stuff there. Do you read MDA every day? You should. It is really motivating pretty much every day.

    First dress rehearsal tonight! Three hours standing on risers, can't wait! Hope it isn't too brutal. It will be fun to hear the soloists.

    Oh, it's quite a few pages back. I have been having trouble sleeping during the day in my nice light, airy room filled with windows and skylights and french doors. So I cleared off the landing and tucked a little cot in under the eaves. I made a blackout for the skylight and when I close all the doors it is very dark and quiet and very cave-like. My plan has been to sleep in my regular bedroom when I am sleeping at night and in the cave during the day, but I am sleeping so much better in the cave I might just move there all of the time.
