Late Lunch: Chicken and a small bit of hubbys potato salad (oops)
D: Chicken salad, fetta, lettuce, olives, tomatoes, onion, carrot
Hi! Been a while but didn't forget about the site or primal living! Had a couple of bad food days when I went to visit my parents, but back on track now Feeling pretty good.
Currently cooking curried beef heart. My first time cooking and even eating offal. So far - I love it. Tastes like a strong steak. Probably didn't need the curry sauce either, but I thought I might if the heart was a bit too strong for me. Not the case! New favourite thing to cook, and only $2.50 for a whole heart. Yum! Only downfall was the prep (especially since I don't have a good sharp knife) - but my dog enjoyed the offcuts. Must con the hubby into eating it. This may be a challenge. He thought I was crazy when I bought it. He didn't think I'd eat it. Proved him wrong.
Hubby (really the boyf, but I call him that) gets the idea of paleo/primal, but doesn't seem to be able to fully grasp it. I can see the cogs turning in his head, but it never quite gets there. He believes he can drink all the sugary drinks and eat all the sugary fried crap as he wants and still lose weight because he has a physical job and plans to start exercing. SO HE HAS CHALLENGED ME TO SEE WHO CAN LOSE WEIGHT (OR INCHES) THE FASTEST! Oh dear...

This was a BIG meal day. Knowing my body, won't eat as much tomorrow.
Lacking a bit in exercise motivation lately, but at least I'm getting some done. Once it gets a bit warmer I think this will improve.
Loving the fact that my intense stomach pains have disappeared again. Those few days I had eating crap really did me in.

You are going to kick your husbands butt (until he starts to eat primal too, then his testosterone will leave you in the dust, but don't tell him that)
You look great.

Bleurgh, I think I've caught the flu. Got some pretty bad headaches and tummy pains which are kinda ruining my current happy mood. But oh well! I'm so happy since I've now dropped from 86kgs down to 80-81kgs. Mainly lost it around my limbs and face, tummy fat still jiggles . The spring like weather is also making me happy, spent a lot of time outdoors today. Pretty exhausted!
And, I dyed my hair ^ see avatar.
Hope you are feeling better.
