    Do be careful about overdoing the walking. DH did that repeatedly and now has what look like permanent foot problems. He was unable to do much walking this summer because he was practically limping. He is very much a more is more kind of guy and it has caused him problems more than once.

    I've also been a give it all you got kind of person and I worked myself into chronic fatigue. Trust me, you don't want to go there. Moderation is a very important part of the primal blueprint.

    Yeah, you're right. I've always pushed things, if a little is good, then a lot must be better, right! Walking is actually the only exercising I have done with any regularity, because I can do it. I tried sprinting, but at my weight, I was worried I'd throw a rod, or burst a seal, or (insert the automotive analogy of your choice here) and that would set me back.

    Weight lifting is just boring to me, plus I am very muscular and really can build muscle easily, when I get down to a lower weight I will assess my strength training requirements.

    So to be doing something I walk. The other day (the 10 miles) was to burn off a head of angry steam that accumulated during a difficult week. I do not expect it to be repeated.

    Moderation. Another challenge for me :-)

    I hear you. As long as you don't do it regularly, it shouldn't be a problem. Walking is my favourite, and pretty much only, exercise too. I do want to start on something to tone myself up now though. My goal is in sight, but I'm not in very good shape. Have to figure out how to work around my various health problems.

    Petronius was right. Occasional bursts of excess are not necessarily a problem.

    Well I slept really well for the past two nights. Walking a total of 15 miles over the weekend had that effect. Back at work, sigh... But everybody's tempers are muted. We have a big, overdue project looming over us and we're very busy, and our customers are very busy. Despite what the media might have us believe, manufacturing (at least my little corner of it) is quite busy. Last week tempers boiled over (not mine, but I was affected by it). This week is calmer. Whew.

    I woke up, not hungry at all. I didn't even pack a lunch. But my cousin (whose pool party I didn't attend) brought me in some Paleo friendly food, leftover from the party.

    Yesterday, without intending to I IF'd until dinner. I just wasn't hungry at breakfast and though co-workers brought me in Primal-friendly food for lunch, I ended up not eating any. I took a walk during lunch instead. Tensions grew high yesterday around noon and it was nice just breathing the fresh air.

    Even when I got home I wasn't ravenous, I had a big salad and a grilled pastured pork chop and some fruit. The mood is sombre and guarded here today. Small family businesses have their good points and their bad points. So far the past week has been a study in the dark side.

    Sorry to hear that, Dave. Although they seem wonderfully supportive of your new eating habits.

    Thanks! They have been very supportive. The company is owned by two sisters (second cousins to me). The business was founded by their Father, whose first employee was my Mother (they were first cousins). So we all grew up with each other and everybody knows everybody's business and personal business. Everybody is on some diet or another. I've been somewhat vocal about mine and they all think its Kookie, but another Sister (not involved with the business) has been eating a Paleo diet for awhile now so they get it.

    I have somewhat of the same effect from stress - I don't feel like eating when things are really stressful, unlike before. Actually I think it is a more rational response - when one is in the "flight" mode, one wouldn't stop to eat. Like when the lions were chasing you, you didn't go through the McGrok drive-in window.
