    Thanks Candy. I use Greek yogurt or kefir for most of my dairy needs now (like in smoothies, or a bed-time snack) so it's nice to know I'm on the right track. Translator Son is very big into home-made fermented food, so I'll see if I can talk him into a jar of kimchi.

    Sunday was another draggy day, so I mainly just crashed after church and celebrating MIL's birthday. No exercise, and probably ate a bit too much (but only two chocolate kisses off the birthday cake...) so I didn't feel like weighing this morning.

    I am of two minds about exercising today. Not walking, for sure, we've had freezing rain and sidewalks are not the city's first priority in the winter, unfortunately.

    definitely stay off those icy sidewalks! Its raining buckets here - so no walking for me either. Actually, I've had no walking for 5 days now. I had the flu that started last Wednesday, and that turned into a head cold. And with all the rain and very cold tempts we've been having the thought of walking just sounds too miserable!!

    Maybe it's time for us to do some dancing... Unlike walking, you don't have to turn around and walk back if you discover that you just can't do another step.

    The spambots are busy tonight. Imagine if they actually did something constructive?

    Get dancin'!

    I didn't get to the dancing, I'm afraid, but fortunately I missed the spambots.

    I've been draggy and I suspect it is because I overdid it a few days back. Don't push yourself is supposed to be my first rule, and I broke it. I do get frustrated with not getting things done.

    So, taking life as gently as possible right now. Fortunately, I am still capable of getting some things done, so I've been doing a number of small Christmas things done, trying to organize all the conflicting wishes and demands of 20+ family members spanning four generations and even more cities. Not everybody is happy.

    Other than that, not much to report. Weight is staying pretty stable just below 142, I'm eating decently, and I am about as boring as can be. Sorry...

    Yup, busy is the keyword around here nowadays. But I seem to have turned some kind of corner, a good one. I have two extra males under the roof right now, two more coming in tonight, we've had grandchildren stay the night (and get all sick on us), been fighting some kind of bug, running around for Christmas shopping, and yet... And yet I am less tired than I have been in a long time. When I am tired, like this morning, a few hours rest and I start feeling human again. I rested this morning, and since then have been cooking, wrapping, organizing... Brazilian fish stew, by the way, a link that showed up on MDA a while back. Great stuff and oh so primal. Hubby had three bowls, despite the fact that his stomach has been difficult. He couldn't stop... LOL! To be fair, he hadn't had much to eat the last few days, and he isn't fat-adapted.

    I probably won't be around much for a while, and I don't know when I'll have time to go through everyone else's journals (hopefully you are all too busy to write much) but I will come around again. On the whole, things are well here, although the cold sore on my lower lip is evidence I'm fighting something.

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you!

    After reading everybody else's journals (I just decided to take the time, before tackling the remaining gift wrapping) I am pondering a couple of things. Am I addicted to sugar? Honestly, I'm not sure. I never was a junk-food junkie but neither was I anywhere near sugar free. I still eat small amounts of sweets, and sometimes too much. But I seldom binge and can go a while without any "real" sugar. But I think, all in all, I would like to have less sugar in my life. I would like to be free of it to the point that I can cheerfully go without it for long stretches, and indulge in small amounts (preferably "good" sugars - which means less bad) without guilt and without going off the tracks. I think I'm pretty close, but it is still too easy to shove that extra piece of chocolate in. But I'm not good at doing sudden turn-arounds, so I think I'll just work on gradually expanding the sugar-free chunks of time and shrinking the amounts when I do indulge. Which is pretty much what I've been doing for years now, so I guess I will just continue on that path, until I feel like I've arrived in a good place. Actually, I think I'm in a pretty good place in that regard now, but I would like to be in a better one.

    If all goes well, I will try to do a little "primal" baking tomorrow or even this evening, to have some goodies on hand for the festivities. But it might be too frantic around here to get that done. Wish me luck.
