    The right side of my back is in some serious spasm. I think I'll not be doing much but schoolwork today.

    Today's breakdown of food:

    Woke up feeling a bit better... slept like an absolute rock. I had done the ice pack on the belly fat thing last night while watching Game of Thrones - didn't take a cold shower, though. Maybe tonight.

    I find it amazing that just paying attention to what I eat - I still eat as much as I'm hungry for - and emphasizing fat/protein over carbs - makes me start to drop weight again.

    Simple enough for me to do, though I would kind of like to live life without tracking macros. Sigh.

    I have schoolwork today - and lots of laundry.

    Eventually you do get more of a feel for things and may find you don't need to track as much. I sometimes log my food and activity to see how I'm doing, but I don't track strictly anymore.

    Thanks, Owly.

    I'd been tracking for over a year, on myfitnesspal, before I went Primal. I had dropped 60 lbs doing that... and, some years ago, when I dropped 80 lbs, it was by writing everything down. I was creeping slightly back up the scale since going Primal, I think because I was eating "mindlessly"... tracking it makes me eat "mindfully"... and, apparently, I can eat more than 6' tall lumberjacks.

    Yeah, that's why I still log periodically to make sure I'm on track. It also helps with troubleshooting I find, especially if I track things like workouts, mood, cycle, and weight so I can see trends and relationships.

    I should get my hubby to track what he eats. He has gained back the 7 pounds he initially lost and when I ask him what he eats he can't tell me everything. I think that going high fat, moderate protein and low carb would be helpful but until I know what he's eating I can't tell if he's getting enough fat. I do know he's eating too many nuts and potatoes.

    I'm curious about this cold pack on my belly fat idea. I am going to give that a try. I can't do the cold shower thing though unless its at the end of a hot shower. I like the wake-up call!

    I don't know if it was the cold bath I soaked in last night, or that I wore blue light blocking glasses all evening while we watched "Castle", but I slept like an absolute rock!

    went for a short ride last night... only 6 miles... but had fun.

    Fun is important. If you have fun doing things, you'll look forward to doing them. If you don't you'll find any excuse to avoid doing it.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
