Hey guys. Haven't been on much, wanted to do an update. The last three days have been CRAZY. We had a situation at my house (which I won't bother going into) and had to pack up 5 peoples stuff immediately on Day 30. I spent 6 hours doing that. Up and down from 3rd floor. Followed by helping a friend move on day 31 to a 4th floor apartment, followed by several more hours of packing, cleaning and house related damage control today. All three days labor in 90+ degree weather. It's entirely possible I've just been continuously sweating for most of the last 72 hours, save for a few minutes each day in a cold shower.
In the midst of all of that, my eating has been crap. Not really non-primal, just sporadic, fruit heavy, way too few calories and not at all well planned or balanced, though I have managed to get a solid protein source in me at least once a day. If it weren't for cherries and boiled eggs, not sure what I would have done. Tonight (Day 32) I almost reached my limit when at 6:30 pm I realized all I had eaten the whole day was half a cantaloupe and a banana, just as my roommate sat down with pizza. It smelled so damn good. I thought "well, this is it. This is where it all falls apart. Three days of insanity and barely eating, and I'm undone." Still don't know where I gathered the will, but I proceeded to eat an apple, head to Aldi to buy some salmon, but when I got back a roommate was cooking Rwandan Chicken, which I happily ate (despite it having corn oil in it). That and a hell of a lot more cherries (we had 8 lbs, I'm pretty sure I've eaten about 3 of them).
Tomorrow (Day 33) will be spending several more hours hauling out old furniture, assembling new furniture, cleaning, etc. However, the rush is off and hopefully can at least eat semi-normal. Might be a couple more days before I post again.
If you didn't see it already, check out my thread with reflections from my first month.
