    I'm a daily weigher, I try not to be, but I fail. Of course you do need to realize that weight does fluctuate day to day based on hydration and other things. The trick is not to get all bummed when the scale reads higher than expectation. That's where the once a week or month helps for those iron willed individuals who can resist the temptation to peek. Since I can't, I weigh myself everyday, but record only the weight on Wednesdays.

    I chose Wednesday because if I overindulge a bit on the weekends, a bit of austerity Monday and Tuesday sort of erases it (I like to believe).

    Buffalo chicken chilli sounds great! I also weigh myself everyday, but have learned not to be bothered by the fluctuation. As long as it stays in a general downward trend, I'm good.

    "I wish I had a nice paleo dessert ready, but I don't... I'm feeling the need for something sweet. It is SO HARD to go into the pantry and see the stuff that I used to eat, knowing that I can't have any of it. I just went inside the pantry, and staring me in the face was a bag of mini Butterfingers. Those are pretty much my favorite candy bar! And then I saw a bag of my wife's custom blend of trail mix....."

    One of my favorite deserts is dates stuffed with goat cheese. You can find the recipe here Dates Stuffed with Goat Cheese - The Food Lovers Kitchen. Savoury and sweet and yummy with a nice dessert wine or all by themselves. I find the max I can eat at a time is 3 because they are so rich more would be too much. Another cookbook I have seen before but haven't picked up yet is "Paleo Indulgence" by Tammy Credicott. The recipe's look very yummy.

    Laxatives are not great, but if you have to go for one of them, I recommend either Vitamin C or prunes. They are both fairly benign and nutritious aids.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    If it makes you feel better, I experienced a dramatic and permanent "dropoff in waste production" when I switched to primal. It freaked me out a little at first, but I'm saving a ton of money on toilet paper.

    Theres nothing wrong with weighing yourself everyday IMO. Doing it at a consistent time everyday will ensure that it's not affected too much by water weight and other factors. I've always heard the best time is about an hour or 2 after breakfast, don't have any facts to back that up though... course I don't even eat breakfast anymore LOL!

    Speaking of working out, I actually need to devise a plan, and not go all willy nilly. I also need to make sure my daughter doesn't get injured, as she wants to do some light lifting.

    I don't have a bench anymore as it was ruined while I moved....

    But I do have the following:

    Free Weights
    Olympic Bar
    Dumbbells
    Adjustable weight kettlebell
    Curling bar
    Heavy bag
    2 Body Bars
    Treadmill
    Stationary bike
    Knee Lift / Pull up station
    and still in a box, one of those core stability balls
    and a personal trampoline that I am too heavy to use, but my daughter uses.

    I also plan to build a couple Plyo boxes, and a "Swoosh Bar".

    So, I need to come up with a solid plan for 4 workouts a week.

    I'm not gonna live forever, but I sure a heck want to feel like I can!

    Yay, the laxative is working! Boo, it is working too well!

    Overall I just feel kind of blah and cruddy today. No energy. No desire to move. Would just be happy to stay locked in my room.
