    I think they are a good compromise between processed crap and something that will last in my refrigerator for quite a while. They don't have anything in them that I wouldn't put in myself - ingredients beef, spices, sea salt. No nitrates of course. I love the taste and they can go into just about everything - eggs, veg, on their own.

    Have a primal pizza in the oven right now - zucchini, cottage cheese, and eggs make the crust, Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce, fresh basil, jack and cheddar on top. Smells divine. I have already had a big smoothie since waking up. Slept four hours like a rock. Back to work tonight, just this one night!

    We sometimes get kosher wieners for a similar treat. We started for our grandson's sake, as he gets very nasty reactions to any modified milk ingredients, and most unmodified ones too, for that matter. Poor little guy.

    Having kind of a primal binge day. Big breakfast, already mentioned, large smoothie, 1/3 of my primal pizza, an apple, melon. Am I forgetting something? Now it doesn't seem like that much. It was all so good, maybe it just seems like a lot.

    Just went to paleotrack and logged it - 1568 calories with good macros. Maybe I am getting the hang of this. I feel like I must be forgetting something - trying to remember what dishes I washed!

    Ended up with 2100 calories for the day. Not too bad for a binge! Feel much better tonight that I did last night. I was bone-tired! Looking forward to a couple of days (nights) off.

    This evening I saw a co-worker who has been out with an injury for 10 weeks. In response to her "You've lost weight" comment, I said, "A little." Usually people leave it at that, but she said, "More than a little! You're a wraith!" No one has ever called me a wraith before. For the record, I am not wraith-like, even at my goal weight I will not be wraith-like. I told her that I found out I was gluten-intolerant and stopped eating bread and grains and sugar. She seemed a bit interested. She has considerable weight to lose, and is often talking about it. Now that she has had a severe back injury maybe she will try again. Possibly a primal convert? I doubt it, she has too much pressure from other sources in her life - several very overweight sisters and close friends, also a husband who drinks a lot of beer. But I hope she does, she deserves better.

    I get similar comments. I frequently hear the word "tiny" which is absolutely hilarious. This only comes from people who knew me at my fattest and still have a mental image of me as fat. I am relatively big-boned and heavily muscled, so tiny is something I will never be.

    Once a little old lady I met in a coffee shop congratulated me for walking and told me to continue "to keep your trim figure". That is the closest I've come to getting a compliment on my "smallness" from someone who didn't have a pre-formed image of me. I would think that most people would see me as a bit plump, so the tiny comments are pretty hilarious.

    Having said that, while I'm sure you are not wraith-like, I imagine you are now looking pretty good. Do you have a specific goal weight?

    I'm thinking about 130 lbs, which should be about a size 6, maybe an eight in some styles. So it is in sight as I am 141. At this point I really want to lose the pad of belly fat that I feel it both unsightly and unhealthy, but we all know weight loss doesn't work like that. But I am confident it will happen and I will be pleased when I get to a certain place, and I will know it when I'm there.

    I'm sitting here in a summer dress I bought three or four years ago, knowing it would be a miracle if I ever fit into it. It was on outrageous sale, Patagonia brand, very good quality, great color for me. Now it fits just about perfectly, a trifle loose. Woot!

    I worked last night but woke up raring to go after four hours, so here I am, ready to go out into the world. It is very hot today. This biphasic sleeping is working great for me. I think it helps that it is summer with lots of light and the hot weather too. During the cold season, one wakes up all warm and comfortable under a pile of blankets and doesn't want to get up, but in the heat one wakes up on top of the covers ready for a nice cold drink.

    Breakfast yesterday was so good I had a repeat today, although in a much smaller quantity!

    I find the closer I get to the goal, the more unreal it seems to be. Me? Skinny like that? I'm going to keep plugging away at it, no matter how long it takes, just to savour the unreal feel of my life. LOL!

    It will happen! The amazing thing to me is that the journey would be so important and in fact a wonderful time, not something to just get through on willpower.

    I made mayonnaise with the high-oleic sunflower oil that Mark says is primal and let me tell you, it is a home run. Like a savory ice cream! I was licking my fingers, licking the bowl...embarrassing. I cut up some rare roast beef into cubes and dipped them into the mayo - heaven, let me tell you, heaven. Then I decided it would make a good salad dressing, and put it on some leafy greens. I immediately put the recipe into paleotrack as I know it will be a staple. Very simple - 1 egg yolk, 1 tbsp mustard, 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, 3 tbsps oil. My little workhorse mini blender has an emulsifying disc and I can report that it works great. There is still plenty of it left so I guess I didn't go too crazy. Had some raspberries to top it off. I have no worries about the egg yolk as it is truly pastured and free-range - I had to wade through the chickens to buy the eggs, and I used ordinary yellow mustard because I love it. It is organic, however, and contains no horrible ingredients. I could see using a more upscale mustard, will experiment with that. I strongly urge you to try this, it is really, really good. My previous experiments with other oils and fats were expensive failures.

    I got some natural deodorant for the pits, I want to try to cut down on the aluminum-containing stuff. We'll see. Maybe I can use it every other day? The natural stuff doesn't stop you from sweating, just the odor. Since I don't smell anymore, maybe it will work if my pits don't sweat too much. I've doused them in so much Ban Roll-On that I have no idea how much they sweat.

    Enjoying a night off! Tomorrow night I'm having dinner with my posse and then we're off to a play. Good times.
