    Heh heh heh.

    Couldn't stay away from the fried bananas - had another. Despite seemingly crazy eating, I ended the day still primal, 55% fat 25% carbs, 20% protein, 1900 calories. Okay, off to bed, see you tomorrow!

    I've had a crazy eating day too. Oh well. I'm not even trying to punch the numbers in. To begin with, I didn't even count the meatballs, much less estimate their weight. G'night.

    Well, woke up this morning in quite a bit of pain, enough to make me think about going to the ER. The pain is worse and now constant. Really might be a kidney stone. I wonder how much this will cost me? I have insurance but not great insurance. Off to hospital.

    I really hope you get to feel better soon and it turns out it's not kidney stone. My thoughts are with you.

    Thanks for the good wishes, ladies! Good news - no kidney stone. Bad news - no idea why my back hurts so much. Found an ovarian cyst and a fibroid in my uterus or somewhere. Unlikely those are causing the back pain and since I'm not planning on using those organs in this lifetime, I don't care about them. I am relieved there is no kidney stone, I was very stressed about that, thinking it could start moving and causing agonizing pain and I would be here by myself. Broken red blood cells in my urine, but that is not a cause for concern. Not a drop of sugar, hey hey. Anyway, wasted a perfectly lovely Saturday and probably a great deal of $$$$$$, but still I'm glad I got a definitive answer. The doc told me to rest, rest, rest. If it is a muscle strain, this should be the peak pain period and will start feeling better soon - that is assuming I strained it on Thursday.

    I started to get hungry - did an inadvertent IF for 16 hours. As soon as I was done I went to the food co-op and luckily it was taco day again - carnitas and mexican-spiced beef, YAHOO!!! I ate quite a pile of that with onions and mushrooms. Then a very ripe mango which tasted like candy to me. Funny how sweet things taste when you eliminate sugar from your diet. Could not resist buying another 1/2 lb of meat to bring home. Even though it is expensive - $9 a pound - there is no waste and it is already prepared, and well-prepared at that. Would you believe I was stressing about what I was going to eat if they kept me in the hospital? I took some nuts with me. I can't even eat the peanut butter there, it is loaded with trans-fat. Can you believe that? They can't even serve natural peanut butter? I was formulating plans in my head, like sending out a friend to buy almond butter and bananas and living on those. I'm not eating jello and cookies. Didn't even eat those before I went primal. Well, okay, I did eat a cookie or two every so often. No cookie meals though.

    Anyway, scare is over although the pain isn't. I hope it will ease up shortly. At times like this I wish I could teach the cats how to do household chores, or at least clean up after themselves. Not that they are dirty, but when I can't even bend over it is hard to keep up. I think I will have to sleep in the guest room tonight, the mattress is harder and my mattress is directly on the floor (best for the back, but I can't get up and down right now). The thought of making up the bed is daunting.

    On a very positive note, I have Loren Cordain's new book The Paleo Answer. Can't wait to dive into that. This may sound crazy at this stage of the game, but I am wondering if there is some way to make a living with the paleo/primal lifestyle. If I got a nutrition certification - no idea how long that would take or what it would cost - and then got some kind of paleo credential - hmmmmm. I would love to counsel people and help them be healthier and happier.

    On a positive note, I saw the chart the nurse filled out in triage - she checked 'normal weight' and 'appears in good health' on my assessment. Thank you!

    I'm going to go outside and dive into Cordain's book - thanks again, all!
