Attitudes are contagious, make yours worth catching.
Saturday, June 22
3:30am-12pm. Woke up to yelling. Not awesome.
All normal plus
1 vanilla orange hookah.
Body weight stuff.
B: coffee/almond milk/stevia. ~200g honeydew melon, 1oz. Prosciutto (trimmed of visible fat).
S/L: ok, so the gluten free bakery was giving away free cupcakes! And I couldn't say no... 1 vanilla cupcake with cream filling and chocolate glaze. (I felt guilty after though)
D: 130g lamb kabob (trimmed of visible fat) with buttered cauli-rice and roasted onions.
S: some baby carrots, a small banana, hot tea with almond milk and 1tsp sugar.
Drinks: coffee, fuze, Perrier, matcha, sexy tea, chocolate tea, almond milk.
Calories: didn't calculate yet. Gonna guess 1100.
Hair: noticeably less hair on my legs. Tomorrow I'm going to do the third treatment, I hope it improves! I'm liking not having to shave and get prickly after just 1 day.
Skin: clearing up on the face. My shoulders still need some work.
Body: felt fat today, and bloated. Really negative self body image despite getting several compliments.
Digestion: BMs are good, but I was expectedly bloated and gassy. Why do I do this crap to myself? Fail.
Energy: decent, although half the day was spent lazing about.
I'm experiencing a lot of brain fog today, and kind of disoriented. I wish I lived alone so that I wouldn't be tempted with non primal food. Other than that, today was uneventful. Cleaned the house a little, worked out at home, talked to my grandma, walked in the city. Tomorrow I'm hoping to have a sort of "spa day," where I do my laser hair removal treatment, give myself a manicure and (muuuuch needed) pedicure, maybe take a long bath and make sure to moisturizer my skin really well. Maybe a dry brushing session, too?
Stealing QOTD time, again! I get curious about stuff that does not warrant a thread (plus, I don't care what most people have to say on here, just the people that read my journal. lol.)
Q: What is your most favorite and least favorite food, Primal OR non-Primal?
A: I would have to say that my favorite food is chocolate, I could eat it every day without ever tiring from it! My least favorite food ... well, I haven't met many foods that I dislike, but a few come to mind. Chicken liver (recently tested, lol) brussel sprouts (cliche, I know), and cream-based sauces all make the "ick" list, for me. And, there are some foods that everyone supposedly adores, but I could take them or leave them, like: deep-fried food, pasta, pizza, and chips/crisps. What can I say, I'm not much of a savory food person.

Have you dry brushed regularly? I did it for a bit and I think it made my legs... Break out? Could have been releasing toxins? Or I coincidentally had a reaction to something else? How many questions can I ask?
QOTD: I am much too indecisive to choose my favorite food and I also have met few foods that I did not like, but for some reason I have always been adverse to bell peppers.
Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
Ice cream and pizza for favs.
Salad and olives for least favs.
Awwh, really? I love bell peppers! But they always give me indigestion, lol. I thought for sure you'd put your favorite as maple syrup or something! lol.
I never really got into pizza, and I think it's because of where I grew up. In the north, there are like a zillion little pizza places that all make their own sauces and bread and whatever.But in the south, it's not really as big of a deal, so there's just gross places like Papa John's and Pizza Hut and whatever. The only pizza that I really ever liked a lot was the brick oven kind of pizza -- fresh mozzarella, basil, arugula, prosciutto, olive oil.
Also ... how can you dislike salad?! There are like a million billion different types of salad! You're bound to enjoy a few of 'em. :P
My favorite foods are dates, mangos, cheese, oysters and coffee ice cream
Least favorite foods are salads(all kinds), bacon, nuts, and chicken
Tired eyes, like our tired lives
Ohh, you mentioned cheese. The other day I bought some halloumi cheese, have you ever had that stuff?! Omg, it's heaven when you grill it!
Also I am confident that I could make a salad that both you and Zach would thoroughly enjoy. There's this sorta Persian-y salad that I sorta made up with chunks of lamb, pistachios, honey-pomegranate glazed julienned carrots, barberries and a saffron-olive oil dressing.
It's more about the intentions behind it, I guess. When I say sweet things to people, it usually elicits a different response, because it's not just saying them to say them; usually after saying something cruel and meaning it as an apology. The old saying actions speak louder than words is true here.
Never even heard of it. I judge cheese by aged, color, and price. I'll look for it at Trader Joe's later today.
If it's a fruit salad, then probably, but anything with a bed of greens and sprinkled nuts gets an instant pass from me. I'll take your challenge though.

The cheese is called Halloumi cheese oooor Grilling Cheese. It's a combination of different kinds of milk, and it holds up to heat really well. It doesn't get all goopy, but it has a crispy kind of deal instead. It kind of reminds me of mozzarella sticks, but without being breaded and deep fried.
Yeah, I mean, I will be the first to admit that I can be a very sensitive person, sometimes overly sensitive. Sometimes, even when people joke with me and I know they are joking, it pops up into my head later and I wonder if they were just saying it in a joking manner, but truly feel that way about me. It's a silly way to be, I know... like, i'm always focusing on just the negative aspects of people. It proves for a really biased view of how my boyfriend really is toward me. I guess I should also point out good things he says/does for me too so that y'all don't think he's a monster.
Like last night, when he hugged me and told me that I was the most perfect thing he could ever have in his arms. Or when he tells me how shitty his life would be without me because I give him so much and try so hard to make him happy. (I understand this is all mushy stuff, but I just want everyone to know that he can be decent, too.)
