    I would wear them, if they are your most comfortable shoes.

    I talked to DH about getting two more pair of vibrams -- one black for "formal" wear, and then one pair for training for the tough guy/gal and the tough mudder.

    i could wear those sort of barefoot shoes. it is prob coz i have memories of those multi coloured toed socks when i was a kid that i have issues with the visibility of vibrams or they plain arent multicolured enough to cut it lol
    interesting day 2 yesterday. i went out on a bambi shoot so i ended up having to have instant coffee. i could have insisted on hotwater or pulled a lovely green tea bag out of my pocket but i didnt want to make any waves so i took what i was given. i also got to shoot a fallow deer all on my own AND I got to take it home AND I got to keep the organs once it was gutted. i am making deer liver today. i will prob eat half and pate the other half as it is not often you get one. i may give in and give the dog the heart as he is beside himself patrolling the kitchen right now. he's a deer hound and it is hanging up outside. in terms of food i did fine for the rest of the day. just smoked fish and nuts and water and coffee. i was too excited to care that much about not getting dinner either lol

    Seaweed wow...... Two of our three daughters are fantastic shots also, and love to hunt.... but yours takes the cake, as it were. I absolutely love wild venision, but I don't do the shooting, killing thing myself. I can't see something go from live to dead - for some reason. I can follow a line of cattle at the works, but have to omit THAT part.
    I don't know maybe I am just a wooss ??
    But lets not detract from an amazing achievement - well well done, and enjoy the spoils !

    I am lacking something in my diet. I am so unhappy, grumpy, have sores on my face - (eew yuk-almost like impetargo!), I have no motivation, no energy, feel tired all the time - so am off to get some potassium, zinc and magnesium today. I might even get a multi vit instead ???? I am already taking Vit D, lipoic acid, omega 3, and I have a couple of brazil nuts every other day.
    But I shouldn't be feeling like this right ???!!!

    re: the woosy bits. remember i was a vegan/vegetarian for 23 yrs. if you are gonna eat it, you have to kill it. i do admit that i would find it very hard to raise a domestic animal and kill it myself so i would prob get the home kill man or someone i know in that situation. my logic brain does know it is much easier on the animal to be tame and snuck up on with a gun than sent to the works. but if i had raised it, i may be precious if i had to shoot it. unless i had no choice. the kids did have a pony i had to get shot in the end as he was so old and sick. i learnt alot from that as i had to call it. and i also held him while they shot him. once you have done that for a horse you love, everything else is easy.

    i have this sometimes but i dont get the sores. i did years ago when i was a bit of a party girl but i was a vegetarian and i was doing a fair bit of hanging out with jim and jack lol i do have an absolute aversion to taking pills so i have alot of issues remebering to take vitamin pills. i do still maintain we need our nutrients from living food. that said, i can go for days of living on just coffee and meat and eggs. minerals and vitamins all have a synergystic effect with each other so it may pay to just get a decent high end multi vit and mineral pill instead. other ideas : stress is the one which tips the balance for me. so i exercise to negate the stress. i could do all the more new agey stress relief stuff but i am way too wired to do that. i prefer to get out for a walk down the beach to destress. the other one is gut health. if your gut is toasted, you will not be absorbing all those nice expensive vitamins either. or some unidentified food allergy eg dairy. i will support you in denial of that one tho or liver issues?

    hmmmmm not sure, not sure and not too sure - however I will do some more research on this today, after a long walk !!!!!!!!
    and yep stress has been a huge factor in my life of late....anyhow onwards and upwards.
    I hear you about the horse. DH does all our euthanasing around here and he finds it really hard. Years ago the wee pet rat - was so not well - and DH did the deed. Really hard - even with a wee cute pet rat !!!!!!!!!

    Morning ladies.
    Did anyone see 'Is modern medicine killing you?' on TVOne Wednesday night? It was recommended to me by a friend yesturday so I looked it up ondemand and WOW! I think the Dr is Paleo (or at least Paleo sympathiser), she see's a couple of 'patients' each show for whom modern medicine has failed, and then she advises them on alternatives - primarily diet, involving removal of sugar and grains! Some good results with the two she dealt with this week, interested in seeing what comes up in following weeks.

    Just back from the Podiatrist, I got brave and wore my Merrell/Vibrams and she gave them a withering look and commented on them not being a podiatrists dream. But that was all, and she didn't advise me to stop wearing them, although she did put an arch support in my right one - not sure how I feel about that, kind of defeats the purpose of having a minimalist shoe? Anyway, I've got some dodgy degenerative stuff going on in my right big toe, possibly a stress fracture. So off for x-ray next week if its not better, specialist appointment made for 6 weeks time. Its making my anti-inflammatory diet seem much more important now.

    i always say bone broth and gelatin and vitamin C. bone broth is so good as it has so many minerals in and i absolutely maintain, and i dont need studies to prove this, that animal fat helps with mineral absorption too.

    didnt see the TV program. i dont have a Tv and at that time i was probably driving around some road in the middle of nowhere but i did hear it was going to be worth watching.

    fantastic watch! DH actually saw the shorts and taped it - so we watched it together. It took all of my best efforts to not say....see.....I told you so......etc... but I held my tongue and said nuffink !!!!!!!
    That is gonna set this country on fire !!!!!! especially if people start to question, and experiment with their food. heres hoping anyway.
    Good Luck with the big toe Lizzielou. We only have two, and if one aint working - not easy to spread the load as it were. Great that you are getting it sorted.... I had a bursitus in my hip for ages, and same.....cant go getting a new hip at the drop of a hat - however seems to have resolverd itself since going primal !

    Good stuff! I said to my DH that my friend Michelle had recommended we watch that TV programme, he just rolled his eyes and started to grumble about how that particular friend is sooooo anti Dr's and how we'd all be dead if it wasn't for modern medicine..................blah, blah, blah. He watched some with me then excused himself to go play in the garage, don't think we won that convert. I found the programme particularly interesting as I also have a TMJ (jaw) disorder like the guy with the headaches - I don't get headaches thankfully just related neck and shoulder pain. It really makes me wonder how bad off I might be if I didn't look after my diet/health so well? I still suffer from chronic pain doing primal and keeping fit and doing osteopathic treatments/stretches, take all that away and it would be an interesting experiment to see how long it would take before things got really bad.

    Bah...having a poor me, my body is falling apart day! Off to Wellington for WOW tomorrow morning so there's something to look forward too.
