    Judg, I don't think you've seen the end of improvement. I'm at a flat spot right now too, but I think I know how to fix it. Keep on trucking

    Thanks for the encouragement, ladies. I certainly do hope I'll continue to move upward. Babysitting little ones right now, although the Professor has taken them out for a car ride, giving me a chance to shower and recuperate a bit. Oops, think I heard the car door slam. Break time is over.

    What people don't understand about health improvements and weightloss is that it's not a continual process. Hangups and plateaus are inevitable. And it's crazy, people hit a plateau and feel like they need to "change" or "fix" things. If something was already working keep doing it right through a plateau... you'll come off eventually but your body needs the plateau time to prioritize the energy it's being provided and do some much needed healing along the way. Hope you're doing well!

    Thanks, Ecks, yes, I do seem to be doing better. Got up this morning raring to go, which is something unusual after taking care of the little guys. So I am very happy. I guess I was feeling discouraged because the slump had been longer and harder than what I was expecting. Not to worry, I don't give up easily. And I guess that cold was worse than I thought it was. It still hasn't cleared out entirely. Oh well.

    And I am a couple of days behind in reporting, so here goes...

    Health journal May 30, 2012

    Sleep: Not enough. 7 hours? Started too late.

    Weight: 155

    Food
    Vitamins: check
    Breakfast: bacon and 2 fried eggs
    Lunch: Everything salad with ham
    Supper: Chicken breasts, tomatoes, green peppers
    Snacks: pork rinds, flour-free cookies

    Exercise: chasing toddlers

    Activities: Small chores, 2 loads laundry, cooking, hand dishes, emptied dishwasher, babysat, sweeping


    Health journal May 31, 2012

    Sleep: 8 hours?

    Food
    Vitamins: forgot
    Breakfast: Cottage cheese with berries
    Lunch: Steak, sweet potatoes, mashed cauliflower (with olive oil)
    Supper: Bit of chicken, dill pickles
    Snacks: Cookies (same ones), two hard candies

    Exercise: more of same

    Activities: grandsons, applying happy face stickers to toddler toilet seat, small errands, emptied dishwasher, hand dishes (twice), changing diapers, etc.

    Comments: took my blood pressure while at the drugstore. 116/73! That's in the optimal range! I had been edging close to the danger zone before losing weight, but despite the weight loss I had never seen it drop below 120 before. I have also had no incidents of my heart racing (I would sometimes wake up with that) since eliminating grains.

    Hi Judg. Checking in. Glad the (TMI) issues are taken care of. Just be patient with the changes. Changes take time, as I know you know, and I know how frustrating it is to have a lot of positive changes all at once and then nothing for a long time. Just be patient and trust the process.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Yes, I know they take time. But I was starting to get a little concerned that the benefits were only temporary, which would have been pretty distressing. I am kind of tired today, but not flat on my back tired, and I have had a fair bit to do, so all in all, I'm encouraged. And I now have a "situation" to deal with. Caught between government bureaucrats and their never-ending series of hoops, and a stressed-out husband. *sigh*

    I went through a real tough week after last week of 21 miles of walking and 14 miles of bike riding! This week was a real struggle for me....... but now I'm starting to feel back the energy coming back again. I walked only 2 miles this week - but I'm okay with that. I don't think the fibro or the chronic fatigue will be fixed by eating this way - but I believe with my whole heart this is the only way to treat it. I guess I can live with a few down times if the rest of the time is as great as its been since going primal.

    Dang government junk! Hope you get it worked out soon - don't let it stress you, cuz that will just draw on your energy stores.

    EDIT: 11 miles of walking - (typo) sorry!

    Any thoughts?
    Shortly after I went primal, I decided that I'd not do any primal baking "substitutes". No almond meal cookies, cakes, breads, etc.
    It was easier.

    I did a bit of baking at the beginning, kind of exploring. Then I backed off and went "pure". And I quit losing weight. So I'm trying to figure that out.

    The weird thing is, I hadn't had any desserts or cookies around the house in ages. And I know find I can have these things in the house and not feel compelled to eat them. When I do have them, I can eat them in moderation. Usually. Hubby came home with Lindor Truffles and I completely forgot we had them. They all disappeared without me touching them. (Everybody claims it wasn't them. Right. Somebody is in denial.) Anyway, I will see how it goes. If it causes problems, I will stop making them.

    Tomi, overdoing it has always had very bad results for me, exercise-wise. I prefer to do too little than too much. Long experience has taught me that it causes much less trouble. But I'm going to start getting back to it now. Like in a few minutes, LOL! Dancing today; it's raining out.
