    Yeah, I was being a bit sarcastic there.
    Allergies again this morning, but the air here in our little canyon town is thick with smoke from all the wild fires in the region.

    My friends have told me that if I say, "Wheat is murder" one more time they will hit me over the head with a hammer. (But it is...)

    You should make that phrase into a T-shirt and bumper stickers - market to the primal/paleo/gluten-free crowd. Come up with a cool logo with it - I'll buy a shirt, your first customer.

    Weight - 151.0
    BP - 110/69
    Pulse - 55

    Looks like my weight is creeping up. Strange, as I don't look any bigger at all and my clothes still fit the same. I've been following the Convict Conditioning routine regularly and am getting stronger. I know everybody who starts working out and gains weight always says "oh, it's the muscle gain" - but I can't figure anything else. I have had some higher carbs the last couple of days, so maybe that's a contributor.

    I've been posting on the other fasting challenge thread - several of us are going about 4 days. I'm at about 57 hours into it right now. My starting weight - after a weekend of sugar binging - was 152.2.
    Weight - 147.6
    BP - 111/68
    Pulse - 63

    It seems like I'm looking as lean now as I did at 135 pounds at the end of 21 days, so the strength training is doing me some good.

    So this is the last day of my nearly 4 day fast (challenge). I will end it today after 5 pm - plan on breaking the fast with pemmican again. While I'm 10 pounds heavier than when I ended the 21 day fast, it seems like I may look even a little bit leaner. Is it possible than I've added 10 pounds of muscle? Seems unlikely, but I'm definitely getting stronger from my Convict Conditioning routine. I got through the Jackknife Squats yesterday, doing 3 sets of 40 and did the Flat Bent Leg Raises and Straight Bridges as well, although I didn't manage to advance through those. I haven't had anything but water and salt since starting this fast and I'm really missing coffee. I'm at almost 81 hours and planning to go 90. Homestretch
