    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    Judg, can you tell me where I can find your tapioca bread recipe? I think you use a blender? I just found my big stand mixer, I can probably make it in that, will be easier.

    The thing I like best in reading about your success is how you can do things again. Weight loss is great, but in success stories, I always love hearing about how differently people FEEL. I am amazed by you.
    I'm with you on the destination walking- I love having a purpose to the walk besides exercise. Maybe if I lived in a place of great physical beauty I could walk for the viewing, but the suburbs only inspire occasionally.

    I love your description of where you live and your walking adventures. You certainly get plenty of slow movement and that is pretty awesome how you are tolerating the exercise so much better! Excellent news. And that you are still creeping down the scale. I hear what you are saying about needing to get more muscle tone - but right now I would give a lot to just be scrawny and be needing to buff up!!! I am kind of stuck at 190lbs at the moment - soooo ready to move on again. You really are an inspiration for tortoise me And I am going to 'try' the planks again in a minute or two - I have no excuses so will shake away for as long as I can Glad there is no-one to watch me (aside from the kids and the dog that is!)

    Hi Judg, caught up on your journal too .

    As for the tortoise you might know this Italian expression: chi va piano, va sano e va lontano . I haven't lost any weight since going primal, not even on my Whole30. But for now I'm pretty happy with that, because I haven't been looking at calories or macro's in the past few weeks, but I'm still maintaining my weight (I'm between 72 and 74 kg now, depending of the time of month). After loosing 25 kg last year I think it's a good sign that I haven't added any weight this year! No more yo-yo-ing for me . My goal is to maintain my current weight until the end of the year, then start 'tweaking' as of January and try to loose another 10 kg, slowly and then maintaining the new low.

    Oh my goodness. I answered all these posts and came back to find hours later that I must have closed the window before clicking Post Reply. Can I claim a senior's moment, even if I'm a few years short?

    I look at the trees and flowers in people's yards in the suburbs. Technically, I am in the suburbs, but right on the edge of a purely residential neighbourhood, near the intersection of two main drags.

    Yes, I prefer to have no one watching when I'm exercising too. Unless they're pretty much in the same boat as me.

    Great expression! I think I've heard it before, but I need to memorize it. Your plan sounds excellent. It's so much better to aim for a healthy lifestyle rather than try to win a race. Although a little jogging now and again is a great thing... LOL.

    I've been getting in a lot of walking this week, mainly because I've been running around so much. Today I don't think it was quite enough to qualify, but I did my resistance band routine this morning for my LHO workout, so it was a good day again, fitness wise.

    For a late breakfast a smallish banana with almond butter and a decent foretaste of the taco meat I cooked up for this evening's supper of a taco salad.

    Yesterday DD was over, so I made a large salad with a weird variety of veggies (including a cooked white beet) and cottage cheese and an avocado dressing. 'Twas yummy!

    I am gradually feeling better too. I've been out every day but Tuesday this week, and have been functional when I got home, instead of needing desperately to crash.

    I am still going through a paradigm shift in my head, trying to harmonize how I see myself with what I see in the mirror. There is still a disconnect and I am feeling pretty weird about it, as if I were running around in disguise.

    I wore age-inappropriate red tights today.

    Red tights! woo-hoo! Its so good to hear you are feeling better and having more stamina! It has been just about 6 months now since you went primal, correct? Just think what another 6 months will do for you At 6 months I was walking a pretty comfortable mile and began pushing it to 2 miles. Now I can do 3, but it wears me out so I don't do that very often. I'd like to do some 5K charity walks this coming summer so I'm working up to that!

    I hope so, Tomi. I just have to remember not to get too excited and overdo things and set myself back again.

    Three miles is pretty close to 5K. You are practically there. I'm not ready to try that far yet. Three kilometres is doable on a very good day, if I follow it up with a good rest.

    Met an Internet friend from another forum today. That was fun. Starbucks and shopping. And I managed to find a couple of things I had been looking for for a long time, which was also cool.
