    Sounds awesome!

    Haven't yet caught up on other people's journals, probably won't get there tonight either. A few things on the go, mostly taxiing the kids around for soccer, socializing, and so on. Mom left today, and yesterday we spent a lot of time outdoors getting the backyard sorted out, managed to turn my shoulders a nice shade of pink. I'm hoping to get a few things planted on the upcoming long weekend.

    I'm still battling the sugar demon, which actually sort of makes sense considering the other pms stuff going on at the moment. Funny, I never really had sweet cravings that time of month before primal, at least not that much. Maybe because I used to eat more of it more regularly?? Anyway, I had purchased some slightly sweetened young coconut that's sort of dried at Costco...and managed to pretty much dive head first into the bag after work today. Lets just say it hit the sweet spot and I stuffed it in until I actually started to have a belly ache on top of the bloating and cramps. Not particularly my most shining moment. I won't be surprised if it doesn't get my insides moving in a not so pleasant way tomorrow...And a bit of dark chocolate came later. I probably should toss the coconut...Right now I feel very tired, probably coming down off the sugar.

    Didn't get to the gym today, as the gym beside my work is closed as it is currently housing a bunch of troops brought in to assist in the flood relief efforts. There is another bigger gym across the base, which is a lot busier. And my locker is off limits, so no walk to the park as there's no place to shower and change. I decided this is a good time to go back to the PB Fitness for a couple of weeks, so did that after work. After a good week of no workouts besides walking, it was a really good challenge. Then a 45 min walk. This was after the coconut load, I had to do something.

    Today's eats:
    B: coffee with cream
    L: mom's veggie soup (mostly borscht like with cream), a tin of tuna with a bit of avocado oil
    S: copious amounts of coconut. a pepperoni stick, 8 macadamia nuts, 2 squares dark chocolate.
    D: leftover steak & mushrooms, bit of asparagus. 2 more squares dark chocolate.

    I think a good fasting day might be in order for tomorrow. Unless I wake up ravenous from the carb load today, in which case maybe a good meal of eggs might be a good start to the day. We'll see in the morning.

    I have to head out shortly and pick up the boys. Will try to get to bed at a reasonable hour, was up late Sunday as it was Mom's last night. I had a 3 hour time change to adjust to from the trip, but think that's sorted out by now, mostly anyway.

    A decent night's sleep, nearly 7 hours, could be better but not bad. Stayed in bed an extra bit as I wasn't planning on prepping any meals this morning.

    I did decide to go the IF route today. I expect it will end up around 18 hours or so, or at least that's the plan at the moment. Feeling a bit hungry at the moment, but that generally fades with a cup of green tea or something similar.

    Oh...forgot to mention...when hubby was in New Orleans last week he actually bought himself a pair of VFFs! Found a shop that had every style in stock, he tried on a bunch and chose the KSO Trek with the heavier sole. Red & black. I'm jealous. I like the sprints I got online, but they are actually a touch big. All the sizing charts said that a size up from your KSO size is needed for the sprints and classics, I kind of thought they seemed a tad long when I first got them, and should have sent them back, but I was so happy to have them, plus they arrived in time for my birthday, and so on. I wear them a lot, but need to stick to the KSOs for longer walks or maybe sprints too. I've had some rubbing spots due to them being a tad large. Phooey. I wish I had had a chance to try them on first, but no stores in the city have them.

    IF for 18.5 hours today.
    Black coffee and assorted green tea & water during the day.
    D: homemade caesar salad with BBQ chicken breast, some of the addictive coconut (FAR less than yesterday's coconut fest) plus 1 square dark chocolate
    S: chicken thigh and half a pepperoni stick.
    Maybe something more, on the protein side?

    Left work early for PT, so did an hour walk with some jogging spurts and a couple of sprints. Out for son #2's soccer game from 7-925pm. No soccer tomorrow, but son #1 works until 10 or a bit longer, so will have to pick him up. An actual "early" bed is hard to achieve.

    Still feeling horribly bloated, waiting for Mother Nature to let loose. Otherwise a good day. Okay, maybe the coconut was unnecessary, but I kept it to a more reasonable amount. And the bag is nearly finished...good grief.

    That coconut stuff sounds dangerous.

    I'm not saying anything (Lindt 70%)

    Thanks for the warning, I'll NOT look for that coconut!

    Good for him!
    My sprints are too small...maybe we should switch?

    it wouldn't be the same barefoot thing with no socks. Besides, with the sprints (the mary jane sort of style) it would look even stranger than the VFFs alone!

    Correct. It is. And it's gone.

    Definitely don't.

    Hmmm, don't suppose yours are size 40? Mine are 41, but my KSOs in 40 fit great.

    And for anyone who has heard the continuing saga with my boys...here's another chapter. And another good hit on my cortisol level.

    Had to pick son #2 up from the principal's office a couple of hours ago. Lets just say more of the same, but what seems to be an escalation. Police were involved, as were a lot of kids, no charges, but there is a 3 day suspension. I'm not quite sure where to go this time at the homefront...he's obviously not in the mood to talk right now, which is fine, but I've told him I want his thoughts on helping me to decide how we should address this, rather than me just grounding him/taking his phone/selling him to the gypsies/locking him up in the basement forever/etc and him shutting down and hating me. And yes, hubby is out of town, but home late tonight.

    I'm still hoping this is just a bit of an extreme take on a phase that many 14 year old boys go through...Once again I'm not too sure where to go on this one.

    hmmm hug on that one. kids!!. how is your husband going to take this when he gets home. Is this a bullying incident? Or is he in the "I'm just too cool" for everything stage. Is it the kids he hangs around with? sigh, I bet you are doing a lot of that, sighing, lately. Perhaps he just needs some really good counselling time.

    By the way, the selling him to gypsies and lockign him in the basement forever, sounds like a really good plan

    I am no help whatsoever, but I do feel your pain.
