Meals here continue to be delicious. TG thinks that Iíve become a more adventurous cook and loves all of the new recipes Iíve been trying. Today I tossed together Chicken Kale Tomato soup, in other words, whatever leftovers were in the fridge that played nicely together. Dinner was an eye-of-round roast beef, sweet potatoes, buttered cauliflower, and a small serving of pineapple/mango fruit salad.
I suspect that tomorrow Iíll find out that Iím not hitting my weight loss goals. If I still havenít lost anything, the most likely suspects are eating too much fruit (3-5 servings a day), perhaps too much heavy cream (pint a week), a teaspoon of raw honey in two cups of decaf coffee a day, trying something new each week (a bit of rice, ice cream, ff yogurt, etc.), or the ounce of nuts a day. If this is the case, my plan this week is to cut fruit back to two servings a day, coffee with cream and honey once a day, nuts three times for the week, and no new items. Weíll see what the morning brings.
On the bright side, I feel fabulous, have lots of energy, havenít been ill with a cold/flu/virus since starting Primal even though Iíve been exposed to various illnesses, am walking daily, eating plenty of meat and veggies, blood pressure is a little lower than it had been, still staying within the monthly grocery budget, and hubby is 100% supportive of my primal lifestyle while remaining happy with his more CW/whole grain lifestyle. Also, Iím not sure if itís my imagination, but I think that my rosacea is clearing up. I havenít broken out in about 5 weeks and havenít felt that awful flushing sensation in a few weeks.
And hereís an odd one - my wrists seem to be getting stronger even though Iím not doing any exercise to specifically target them. Until recently I used to need both hands to carry the cast iron skillet when it is full of food. Yesterday I found myself handling one in each hand and didnít realize the change until I put them down.
