Thanks Speck. Got more sleep last night than I thought I would. Rest. Rest. Rest. Coughing has subsided a bit. Took some meds. No fever, so that's good. Thawing out my chicken stock and will sip all day.

Menu:
B- strawberries and 1/2 banana
S- trail mix
L- blueberry/green smoothie
S- almonds
D- braised chicken thighs, a mess o' organic zucchini (haven't decided what to do with it yet but olive oil and parmesan comes to mind)
Yikes..it's Ash Wednesday but have vowed to stay home and rest *already told my priest yesterday I probably would stay home--He said I sounded awful and that would be a good idea* I forgot about this being a soup type day. I will go on and cook the chicken for DH for the weekend. The zucchini will become a soup or some kind of main dish. Frittata???

Watched "Chopped" last night and one of their ingredients was semi sweet chocolate pieces. A couple of them made a vinaigrette...different to say the least. But they got raves on it from the judges. Gotta find that recipe--using 72% doncha know.

Hi everyone :-)
I'm hoping it's ok to join in ... I've been toying with primal/Atkins/counting calories & finally decided primal is the one I can live with forever. I'm ordering the book as soon as I finish the post so I can really understand & do it correctly :-)
I'm 27, married just over a year & gained almost 50 lbs! I'm looking to ultimately lose 90 lbs & really just regain my energy & get as healthy as possible! I've been overweight my entire life, so I know that this wont happen overnight, but Im ready to commit. I am going to keep an eye on my calories/carbs just to keep myself on track. I stray easily without some order!I'm on ************ if anyone else is ... FitWife!
Looking forward to getting to know everyone :-)

You'll notice I don't update every day. Mostly on the weekends when I have more time. It's a great book, and I would def. recommend it to anyone new to Primal Blueprint.

Hey party people, what's goin' on over here? I may have eaten some bread when I was sick, and I may have eaten some fried goodies at the buffet last night, but otherwise, keeping in Primal! Still getting over the cold/upper respiratory infection from hell, so exercise is even more sporadic than usual. But I *have* been eating more dark chocolate!

Hi! Glad you're getting over being sick. Still sticking with primal for the most part here too. Down 4.1 since Mon 2/27. Had some bad stuff tonight (ice cream), but back on track in the morning again. We've been trying to remember to shut off the tv before falling asleep too, and we're both sleeping alot better now (have slept with the tv on for years). So, we're making progress...little by little

Sounds good to me 'specially the choco part.

I had some curveballs this week. Had to go out of town, had to shop for a party I am helping with. Proteins ok, veggies not. I hate being at the mercy of institutional food. I end up eating lots of (bagged) salad and not eating the steamed veggies that frankly looks pretty rubbery and I know tastes of fake butter. Even at "adult beverage time" there was only one thing I could eat-shrimp wrapped in bacon. How did that get in there among all the crackers, pretzels, breads and cheeses? I managed. I think I'm better than 80/20. Watching people devour those high sugar desserts depresses me, but not in a "Wahhhhh, I can't have any" way. I am depressed that people who I know should not consume, are consuming. Big bowls. No one gave me flack for NOT eating it so I keep my mouth shut about what they are eating. Still--depressing. Also, no alternative desserts for people like me.

I will make first report on SNAP tomorrow. Not a lot spent but I think that this upcoming week will negate any shortfall I may have incurred.

Wow ttt-fantastic! Don't sweat the ice cream. Just hope it was the good stuff...don't eat the cheap stuff. Life is too short.

Put timer on my TV and lights so they go off at 11 sharp. If I don't go to sleep right away I get out the Kindle. If I fall asleep I don't have to worry about a light.

What would my late mother say about a Kindle? A high tech version of me under the blankets with a flash light reading Nancy Drew....

Thanks! And way to go on the 4.1 lbs! that's awesome. Ice cream is only bad if it's low quality and habitual. Having the good stuff once in a while is a treat and you shouldn't sweat it. I am also in a bad habit of having the tv on when I go to bed. I put a sleep timer on it though so it's not on all night. I have a terrible habit of replaying the whole day and/or obsessively going over what's on the next day's agenda if I don't have the tv to distract me.

I know what you mean. It makes me sad too when I see people trapped in broken, distorted bodies habitually poisoning themselves, creating their own physical prisons with what they are consuming. I wish I could help them.

I totally agree with your ice cream philosophy!

I'm struggling with Primal a bit. I think the access to permitted nuts and fruit is stalling me. I need to at least cut the nuts for now - generally not even hungry when I eat them. I'll see if that helps!

Congrats on your loss tttmom!

Lenten Challenge up-date

Browsed the weekly ads and found only one thing needed/wanted-Kroger brand corned beef brisket for St. Patrick's Day. On sale $1.99 and hope to find a small one. Oh and asparagus is on sale! Haven't been to grocery in 9 days so far and plan to go to produce farm this afternoon. I have a family emergency *nothing serious* but need to be out of town with g-kids from Friday to Monday. That will have an effect on my budget somewhat. It may mean that DH will be eating leftover lentil chili and burgers/sausage from the freezer-he's not a cook. He'll have leafy greens though, some I'll take with me

Will be under budget fer-shure for the week.

Hey, that is way cool. I'm going to have to spend some time with it later.

My big news for the day/week is the I planted a garden today! All kinds of vegetables, and some berries, too. I just hope it grows! I did everything I was supposed to and put a lot of effort into it, so I will be really disappointed if it flops. The last garden I tried failed, except for the zucchini, but I didn't put much effort into it then.

Good for you,Speck. I've got spinach and surrey greens *whatever those are* growing uncontrollably. Love them. Planted strawberries and dill, tomatoes and basil. Barrels are full.

That's great Speck! I can't wait to plant ours too. But unfortunately, we can't plant till June here. We usually end up planting 3 or more times and losing everything to the snow. Very short season here (June-Sept), but I'm going to make a good effort this year.

Still here, and still eating clean Mon-Fri, but I ALWAYS mess it up on the weekend. It's like I have no self control, and I can't help myself. Hubby tells me I do that cuz I don't want the loss bad enough. I don't know. I am getting discouraged though, because I keep bouncing around the same 4 pounds every week for like 2 months now. Why do I do this to myself?!?!

I can relate triple t. That's one of the reasons I started doing JUDDD. I also wonder if I sometimes sabotage myself because I'm afraid of being thin deep down in my psyche.

Hello folks! We're going primal around here, slowly but surely, so I thought I'd jump in and say hello.

Grocery shopping today - ouch! The other day I bought the e-book Well Fed, by the blogger of TheClothesMaketheGirl.com, and it's super inspiring. I'm definitely looking forward to exploring these recipes.... might as well make the most of these expensive, quality foods!

We're all here. We all have bizzy schedules and try to check in when we can. I'm over here doing a challenge- keeping groceries low while still eating WILD. Check it out

Posted a mid week update for the Lenten Challenge. Still on track...food a little $ this week but will make it up next week.

The Lenten Primal Challenge Begins..NOW

Haven't been doing what I should as far as exercise lately. Between the rain and doing Gramma stuff, it seems to have gone out the window. I did do a couple of squats in kitchen the other day. Need to do 500 more before end of month

Hope everyone is keeping on. Dinner tonite is pulled pork (slow cooked) stuffed sweet taters. Can't quite figure out about the BBQ sauce for it. Will make my own using palm sugar I guess (Hubby doesn't care for my stevia). I'll figure it out. I always do

I cooked a TON yesterday to stock my fridge with quick snacks and meals. Meatballs with pine nuts and Moroccan spices, sausage patties, chicken breasts, hard-boiled eggs, and I don't know what else. Still more to do, but I'm putting it off until tomorrow - sick of my kitchen right now!
