    So I weighed myself this morning and I was 177 lb which is a bit of a gain. But I feel good. So I am going to ignore that number... it has only been three days and your weight does fluctuate 5 lb in a given day anyways.

    I guess that is officially my SW (hopefully it doesn't go any higher...)

    So today I am exhausted. I know I cannot put this as a cause-and-effect... but I wonder if it could be a result of all that sugar I consumed yesterday? (In the form of apples and two cookies). Thankfully this is a Saturday and I don't have to work...

    But I am reading the Primal Blueprint and a lot of what I am reading is ringing true about over-training and adrenal fatigue. I think I am the cortisol queen.... and the proof is in the spare tire around my waist. Even prior to my hormonal difficulties when I was 20 lb lighter and you could see the striations in my shoulders and quads, I had a little pooch... a pooch I will call the "cortisol pooch".

    The old me is saying it is a Saturday and I should take advantage of the day and go for a run or at least do some primal sprints... but the new me is saying I should listen to my body and just sit and relax.

    I am going on a hike tomorrow anyways!

    Day 7! The last two days have been relatively high calorie days (2500 and 2100) so I need to go back to cutting it a bit lower as weight loss is my goal. I am also going a bit heavy on the carbs (fruits specifically). I have read a few threads that talk about the easiest way to cut the addiction is actually to just cut it all out... so that might be where I am headed.

    This evening will be a little tough though since I am going for dinner at a cousin's house. I have always had a gluten intolerance so I know there won't be pasta on the menu.... but....

    Exercise: run 7.5 km with 3 "sprints", walk 9 km
    Breakfast: 3 egg 3 egg white mushroom omelette
    Lunch: apple, 250 grams turkey, 2 cups cauliflower
    Dinner: chicken breast, pork, yam, white potato, parsnips, kale salad, mushrooms, cauliflower (dinner with cousins... amazingly stayed primal except for some potato!)
