I bought some yummy medjool dates for my carb refeed. I cut two in half, wrapped each half in bacon, and baked them as a treat for my (non-primal) boyfriend. Afterwards he is acting like he's in sugar shock from them, so I suggested I take his blood sugar with my glucose meter. NO NEEDLES, NO WAY, NEVER!
So what did he do? Ran to the refrigerator and poured himself a glass of code red. Um, hello?

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
I love my inlaws and SO... seriously, they are now worried about me doing CrossFit. I come home sore on occasion. Yes, it is hard. But my back feels better than it has in years.
"When you are in your 60's you'll need a new hip or knees". You know what, I'm fine with that. I'd rather need my knee cleaned out or a new hip than need a new heart, diabetes meds. And you know what, I'd rather look better than I did at 20 as a 40 year old and need some new joints a few years down the road. Second, guess what.... my joints don't hurt.
I love it when people use the need to have hip or knee surgery down the road as an excuse not to exercise.
Anything other than yoga and walking slowly will tear you up, per my inlaws.Isn't, um...exercise...supposed to be good for you?
The need for hip or knee replacement surgery is good things to avoid, especially when you are young, because a joint replacement is only good for 20 years or so. However, doing nothing is really not a strategy for avoiding it.
People should do moderate amounts of exercise throughout their lives (kind of like our goal), rather than massive amounts of "the more the better" extreme exercise.
Now the 6 million dollar woman replacement parts become a continued reason for not getting fit.
Self perpetuating denial.
