Bout 70 here today, with some cloud cover. Very pleasant:-) After being here 5 years, my California Boy heat tolerance has faded, and anything above 85 is just not nice.
Peak weight on Standard American Diet: 316.8 lbs
Initial Weight When Starting Primal: 275 lbs
Current weight: 210.8 lbs
Goal weight: 220 lbs (or less): MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
The way "ChooseMyPlate.gov" should have looked:
It's been in the mid-90's here for the past week, with a very hot sun (5500 ft altitude), but the nights are cool. Would be great if I could open the windows and cool off the house at night (no A/C), but wildfires on the other side of the mountains are blowing smoke this way. So it's an oven in here. I spend most afternoons in the basement drinking ice water. Being 9 months pregnant doesn't help.
Done bitching. Carry on.

P.S. It's still hot out there. My husband says I am a lizard, my happiness needs to be charged by the sun. I'm quite dour these past few days.
Still slightly sub-100 here... but the humidity is somewhere along the lines Ron Jeremy's ball sack in a sauna... BLERGGGG!

And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
My previous project, a dresser which tried to kill me that's now a landing strip by the front door.
I guess I could just go clean the house. Grrrr

A poem I wrote today:
Summer in St. Louis
Built my Budweiser-can castle,
bloody tips, snapped,
crisp, muddy-water clean,
like mosquitoes on your lips,
drinking the margarita smear.
Your swimmers, drowning in pools
of K.C. Masterpiece.
biting at the bit
It's a tasty bit of your backyard.
