    Will you be interviewing bands naked? I'm sure you look amazing; don't worry about it. Your body was toned even before you went Primal.

    I'm thinking that might be a way to get more Youtube hits With this weather, less is more. You're right though, need to stay level headed. Controlling my inner weight psycho ain't easy.

    I've been facing some wicked headaches this week, possibly due to the shit ton of supplements my trainer has me taking. We shall see if it works...

    As you guys can tell, I eat the same thing daily. I can eat this menu for months without getting tired of it. I totally splurge on cheat days though and vary my clean eats on weekends. I allow for more animal fat like BACON and pulled pork! NUMS. I have a goal of making it through this holiday season and LOSING weight. Yep, you hear right. WEIGHT LOSS DURING THE HOLIDAYS!

    Bring it!

    Me....I'm so far from perfect. Who the heck IS perfect?

    Yet, I have this insane drive to look and be perfect. I'd like a perfect figure, with a perfect face and a perfect man in a perfect world. Yeah..talk about setting yourself up for a disappointment. During this insane quest I must question my desire for this. Why all this drive for the impossible? Am I really so bad off in the present? Hell no . I have a strong body that allows me to run, walk and do some crazy demanding workouts. I have a ton of wonderful friends who love and support me, a job that pays my bill and creative endeavors to fill voids. What IS my beef with perfection?

    Even at my leanest/lowest weight of 135 at 5'9/12 % BF, I was seeking...something.

    Well I'll tell you what I have learned from this asinine trek:

    1) I use food 100% as my crutch in most situations. Meaning, I have an emotional attachment to food.

    2) That being a certain weight or size won't give me the freedom I seek.

    3) That learning to love myself as I am now WILL. Something I'm horrible at but working on.

    4) Eating Paleo/Primal keeps me focused on being healthy, while living life and not so concerned about my next binge or cheat meal. In fact my craving go away. My attachment loosens up...and it's a beautiful thing.

    I have much work to do on myself but I understand now what works and what doesn't for ME. I'm very thankful to have found this healthy lifestyle.

    Knowledge is freedom.

    Meals will be the same as yesterday, workouts will be 8 miles of walking and some foam rolling.

    I guess yesterday was an overshare? Ha I'm human.

    Yesterday was the WORST for sugar cravings. They came out of nowhere and lasted all stinking day. Luckily I managed to NOT eat anything too bad, an extra packet of almond butter. My trainer said no fruit for two more weeks! Passing by the fruit isle in the grocery makes my salivate-Literally.

    I'm thinking Salmon or Pulled Pork today. YUM!

    Walked 8 miles yesterday so I'll cut that in half today,add in some weights with 10/15 min HIIT circuit. Yee-Haw.

    Nothing is 'over-share' in your journal. That's what it is for!
