    I'm sure I can find some ideas on this ole internet thang. I don't know why I bought it! But it will be good.

    I stopped at the food co-op and got a pile of roasted chicken with blue cheese and bacon on a bed of leafy greens. That is one of the world's great combinations. If they had avocado, it would have been even better. Of course I could have just bought an avocado, but they didn't have any on the food bar. Anyway, it was terrific. And I just ripped through a small container of raspberries. It seems like everything I eat is more delicious than the last. I don't remember ever enjoying food so much in my whole life. Even though I am not slowing down, savoring, or any of that stuff, just diving in.

    I am also enjoying drinking for the first time ever. What is that about? I don't mean alcohol. Just water, iced teas of various kinds (I have a rose tea right now), the lemon and lime waters I keep going on about - just love them. I'm not really that thirsty, I just make up something to drink and it seems so wonderful. Is this really weird? I would be worried if I was constantly thirsty and unable to drink enough, etc. - I know what that means. My bladder seems to have gotten bigger too. Even though I am drinking a lot more I don't have to pee more often. I just piss like a racehorse when I do. Is this what it is like to be a guy?

    Just had some protein powder/goat milk thing I got at the co-op. Yuck! Didn't have much fat, much flavor, and gave me a little headache. I will stick with the brand I have at home. Unfortunately I don't have any fat to add here at work, but of course the goat milk supplies some. But it wasn't very good. Did have a lot of nutrients, but I wonder how much I can absorb? Maybe these powders just need to be made into smoothies with blenders. I certainly enjoy the ones I make at home! In fact I am afraid I enjoy them too much - I could have one every day.

    When I was in Australia, I had a hamburger with a fried egg and a slice of beet on it. Hmmm. Sounds primal to me.

    The bad protein drink thing had me down. Luckily I have a salami and some cheese with me. Was that ever good! And lots of fat so I feel good. How did I live without lots of fat? No wonder I was always hungry.

    Didn't I say I was thinking of giving up dairy? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Loving reading your journal! I can so relate to just loving my food lately! And being done with brain fog - man, that was just a horrid part of my life!!! I am so happy to be clear headed and energetic again. And I can't encourage you to give up dairy! because I am not planning to ever give it up myself Every now and again I will have a glass of cold raw milk with a date roll, great way to boost your carbs it is like ambrosia to me!

    You could make your own mini-Mounds candies (!). A little coconut, an almond, and one of Winencandy's coconut oil/chocolate cups. Mmmm.

    Now that sounds really good. I am sure I will find uses for it. I put some in a smoothie just now, it added a nice texture. I love date rolls too. That is my guilty secret, I didn't throw away my date rolls. They are organic, etc., from the food co-op, rolled in coconut. They are really great in a smoothie. When I put one of those in, I don't need any stevia.

    What am I doing up? I woke up at 1 PM, wide awake. It's a gift to not have to sleep until 3:30 or so, but it's not good if I pay for it later. Still, I am wide awake, feeling great, and obviously there is no more sleep to be had this afternoon. No work tonight! I might see a movie or a friend might come by. I am dying to see that movie, "The Exotic Marigold Hotel" or something like that. It is across the street.

    Got a real scare this morning, slim cat was under the weather and wouldn't eat. His health is a little bit precarious, he has some heart issues, but then he woke me up a while ago, wanting attention. When I got up, he asked for food and tucked in enthusiastically. Whew. Being in an area like this, vet services are a bit scarce. We have a really good local vet, but the hours are limited and he spreads himself between three towns - and it is the start of a holiday weekend - all bad.

    My back feels great, barely a twinge. The house is a tip, so I had better get to it. Must be careful, though. No re-injuries. Might start with some laundry.

    I was out walking the other day and looked in the window of the thrift shop - there was a very intriguing rack of jeans in the front window. I think I will have to check that out.

    I want to go out on a boat so bad! I'll have to check out what is available. There are lots of party boats out of the harbor here in season, which should be beginning this weekend. Nature cruises, clambakes, islands, etc. Whales of course. I probably don't need to mention the coast of Maine and the islands are among the most beautiful in the world. Last year I meant to go and never got around to it. I won't let this year go by - but I have more energy now.

    Nice dinner under my belt - broccoli slaw with the usual dressing, hamburger patty, fried egg, 1/2 red bell pepper, 4 oz. wine. Off to the movies soon. Am feeling quite hungry today. I think I am going to give myself a break from paleotracker today. I enjoy it a lot but it can become a bit of an obsession.

    The tourists are here! The grocery store was packed! I'm glad I didn't need to go there tonight, cars were circling the lot waiting for spaces to open up. (Remember, this is a small village.) Also lucky the store is next door and I can just walk. Foggy with a bit of chill in the air, I have a fire in the woodstove and all is well.

    Okay, I am officially obsessive. Went to paleotracker. Macros are all good, at 1100 calories today, which surprises me. Feel compelled to report that I feel really good! Just worked three 12-hour night shifts, did some fine work if I do say so myself, (don't mean to toot my own horn but...beep beep), did a little bit of housework until the back spoke to me, had a lovely dinner, now off to a film I am really looking forward to - hey hey!
