Dad doesn't need a pull up challenge. He can still do them. In fact, he has been giving me some pointers to help me with my pull up practice. I am still practicing but I have backslid a bit.
At day 4 of fully Primal, his neuropathy pains are completely gone and the puffiness around the feet and ankles is almost gone. He hasn't seen his own ankle bones in a while. Needless to say, this is making an impression on him.
It was so cool the other night when I was invited to my BFF's house for dinner and I brought Dad along. (My BFF is 81 and has always had a crush on my Dad so she didn't mind a bit.) The other guest was a longtime friend and chiropractor who has done work on all of us over the years. She is mostly Primal by default since discovering the source of her digestive issues was a severe gluten intolerance. So we had four Primal peeps around the table sharing salad followed by a grass fed pot roast with parsnips and carrots on the side. (The chiropractor/friend is the one who has her own goats and makes her own yogurt and chevre. Yumm.)
It feels like we are developing a tribe.
