    this is a possibility, but the real issue isn't whether or not this happens, btu what happens to your skin/overall health with those colonies growing on it that long until those bacteria show up.

    and that is a bit of an issue.

    well, it's a relatively common misconception that people didn't bathe in some form regularly back in the day. Ancient peoples spent a lot of time in and around water (often playing it as we do) which would decrease bacterial load, and also most humans had consistent bathing practices (washing every few days). An arabic scholar who traveled to scandinavia during the viking era commented that the vikings must be "very dirty people" because they bathed daily, where as he was certain that every 3rd day was enough. That being said, as a muslim, they have fairly intense cleansing rituals for prayer, so he'd be one to talk, eh?

    The reality is, while we think of ancient peoples as "dirty" -- the reality is that even desert peoples had consistent cleansing rituals (using sand, often, if water couldn't be found), and from reading different anthropology studies of "traditional peoples" -- most of them were in water daily (recreationally at least), and also participating in bathing practices (concerted) every few days or so. Women who were menstruating would have other rituals, and then there would be others for after hunts, before feasts, and many others.

    It's just not the sort of bathing that we see today with lots of water, then soap (often anti-bacterial) and shampoo -- perhaps happening upwards of 2-3 times a day for some folks (ie, get up, bathe, go to the gym, bathe, come home from work, bathe).

    Morning ladies.

    I think I enjoy my showers a little too much to be parting with them. Besides, I'm far too particular about my hair!

    Glad its Friday, I'm really looking forward to chilling out this weekend. Yesturday was busy, with a garden party with the residents at work then MRI at 6pm, followed by my weekly cooking class - all while doing a 6 hour working day and doing mummy stuff. Phew! Today, looks a little more pleasant. I've already done the 'Happy Hour' groceries and booked tickets to Breaking Dawn for me and Brendan this afternoon. I'm going to give old fashioned South Island cheese rolls a go for happy hour tonight, so that'll be a nice use of my work hours (better than boring stuff I could do instead!).

    We made a lovely deep fry batter in my cooking class last night which was gluten free, that I'm thinking about using for fish at some point. It is made with Channa flour, which is chickpea flower - now I know legumes aren't strictly Primal, but from what I can see of Marks writing on the subject, a small amount every now and then is not too bad. The batter is nice and light and you can flavour it with cumin and chilli and we added a little tumeric for colour (which of course is also anti-inflammatory so all good for my anti-inflammatory diet). I'm thinking deepfried fish once in a while would be really nice.

    Personally I'm team Edward.

    MRI was painless, just a bit tricky holding still for a long time. I just lay there and tried to go to my happy place. They will send my results to my specialist in 3 or 4 days time and my next appointment with him is 11 December, so now I just wait. Dr google tells me that if my injury is 'turf toe' (which is probably is) then I have to rest it lots, so that is what I intend to do.

    Will you be able to swim, or will it be total rest ???

    I think swimming is OK. Really its about resting the toe, so I'm imagining swimming and cycling would be alright. No planking though, I learnt that lesson already - ouch!, or kettlebell lunges. When the heck would I find time to ditch the kids and go to the pools to do lengths though? Same reason that I don't have a gym membership. That's where walking or running works out so well for me because I can take the kidlets with me, cycling too.
