    How I suffer! Didn't feel like cooking up a production, so I was forced to eat simply. Poached salmon fillet, cooked spinach (don't wrinkle up your nose, I LOVE that stuff), and a half a red pepper, cut and eaten slice by slice till I'd had enough. A handful of fresh raspberries with coffee cream and stevia for dessert. Such deprivations I have to put up with.

    Seriously, I am blissed out. So delicious, so healthy, so easy, so fast. I'd even cooked the spinach yesterday (when my fresh spinach starts to wilt a bit, I cook up the rest), so even easier.

    I've been drawn to simple lately: tomorrow will probably be that half avocado in the fridge, mashed and mixed with diced fresh tomato and diced ham or something similar. I've eaten variations on that several times lately. Another very quick, simple meal. Add a couple of seasonings, and maybe a few walnut pieces for some crunch, and it's immensely satisfying: colourful, flavourful, delicious.

    Gotta love a "diet" that keeps blissing you out.

    I know what you mean - I had spinach wilted in bacon fat with steak tips and half an avocado for dinner. Yum!

    Well. That was a surprise. Too much chocolate was consumed yesterday. 4 squares of 70% Lindt (blush) and Judg Fudg (twice). And yet the scales were down today. I've now lost 10 pounds since going primal, even if my wonky scale is probably flattering me by a few pounds. It was the same scale five months ago, so the difference is probably accurate.

    Two pounds a month makes me plenty happy. If I can nudge it up to a third on occasion, great.

    I have become a great believer in the value of walking for weight loss. When my eating is right, keeping me stable, all I have to do is throw walking into the equation and the numbers start to drop. I was a bit tired when I set out yesterday though, so the walk really wiped me out. Today I will be more careful. Unless I am feeling much better, only a short walk.

    Wow! I've had the exact same experience with walking. I do a figure eight between the living room and the center room. If I walk and reasonably watch what I eat, I lose. If not, I can just stay stable. Bizarre! It's fun to think I can do it right in my house and watch the cats at the same time!

    Big cold sore on my lower lip. *sigh* Objective proof that I was getting run down.

    I didn't get around to eating till about 1:00 today. I am generally quite comfortable with doing my eating in a relatively narrow window, and having only two meals in a day. If I feel too tired, I eat though. Don't want to overdo this.

    I had my regular Greek yogurt concoction. Although I do try to eat it less often, as part of my effort to reduce dairy. I'm doing pretty well there, with fewer meals built around cheese or yogurt. Fewer does not mean none...

    Another "avocado hash". Simple concept: smoosh half a decent-sized avocado with some salt, garlic powder, and lime juice (or fancy vinegar). Add small chunks of protein and veggies. Today it was highly spiced ground turkey (my lips are still tingling), the rest of yesterday's red pepper and about a cup of broccoli florets, cut very small.

    Oh, how I suffer.

    Still feeling drained though, so exercise today will be less than 1 km at a slow crawl. Although I think I'll wait a bit; it's still hot out there.

    Well that was strange. When I woke up at 4:00 to go to the bathroom, all was well. At 7:30, I was drenched in sweat, the world started tilting crazily at the slightest movement, and my stomach informed me it wanted to get to the bathroom. Now. It was perfectly empty, which did not prevent it from trying to get emptier. I sat for a long time on the bathroom floor, still very dizzy, wondering if I should try to go to the hospital, and thinking I had to phone the friend I had invited for supper. I managed to stagger back to bed and fell asleep too quickly to reach for the phone on my night table. And when I woke definitively three hours later, I felt fine again. I cancelled the dinner anyway, and am now trying to figure out if a) I absolutely need food and should eat immediately or b) although the queasiness is gone, eating is courting disaster. For the time being, I've decided that I'll wait for some genuine hunger to eat, and not try to do anything physical at all. I have downed half a cup of black coffee with no ill effects.

    I think I will throw out the rest of the ground turkey I ate yesterday, to be safe. I had wondered a bit about the smell, when I was cooking it, but it was not at the expiration date, and it was so subtle I thought it might be my imagination. I've never had that particular combination of symptoms before, and for me to sleep so immediately and so soundly especially at a time I'd normally be getting up, is very strange. And I never get night sweats, so that is also very strange.

    I feel relatively good right now, although a little limp, and I'm not sure quite what to make of all this. If it's food poisoning, is it normal for it to do a hit and run?

    Sounds like a mild case of food poisoning to me -- but I am NOT a doctor. The nice thing about food poisoning, as far as my experience and the experience of those around me goes, is that it does hit and run. Yep. I'd throw the turkey out!!

    Hope today gets better and better for you with no more unfun trips to the bathroom.
