New Year's Eve went well. The drinking was controlled. There was no drama. Just happy family and one sleeper on the couch. They drew on his face and put a wig on him then we all took pictures next to him. It was actually fun.

The weather out here is great. Did some biking and Monday we took a long walk to the store and around the neighborhood.
Putting on the Paisley Before pic to comply with the E2E

I have not been tracking my food, but what I ate, I know was well with in calorie realms. The carbs were a bit more than I prefer. Still have not gone grocery shopping for MY food. OMG tonight with white castle, potstickers and orange chicken and  pie and ice cream  with the eaters...they really eat a lot! Last night it was pizza and wings and reeses ice cream bars. I am happy I have a book to dig into. Only in my mind at times I think they enjoy to eat more like that when I am dieting. Later in the challenge, and as I read of what others are reading, I am going to actually browse Amazon for a kindle book to help me with that. I had a giant ceaser salad over at a little jewel of a Pizza place around the corner. The croutons were like dipped in a garlicy Evo and were oily-crunchy. I had to pick them out being carb conscious, but they were unusually good.

Got a lock for my bike and training wheels for the cool "Monster High" bike. Tomorrow after school we all are gonna ride.

I still need to get a tape measure.

I tried to load my kindle copy of Primal Blueprint to my phone so I won't be anchored to my desktop. Somehow THIS phone I have doesn't want to do it. The other phone I had took it. I read some of it and rationalized I could eat nuts and had 4 handfuls of peanuts today. Not good. I will kick into gear once the kids are gone to school.

I have not made it to the Y to join, yet.

I will do some surfing the blogs real quick before I hit the hay.

So I have not dealt with the less coffee more chai. And I ate out. Once I go shopping tomorrow...I will be on track. U betcha!


  1. 3 cheers for rolling DRAMA FREE!!

    I really liked Primal Blueprint.
    I could not do it as he does (as strictly) but as a loose blueprint ;) it works.

  2. I believe Mark says you'll benefit with 80% adherence...that no one's perfect. It's a blueprint, just make it work for YOU. I think moving to veggies and good protein, and away from processed and junk always helps..anyone, everyone, everhwere. It's common sense. I ditched milk after reading the paleo/primal peops, and honestly, hardly miss it and my skin got better. :D BUT..I am not letting them get my cheese. I'll die holding a chunk o cheddar, and I'll be smiling. Please. This girl will cut down on cheese (and have), but wont' give it up.And I still have occasional legumes in hummus or a bean soup. I love beans. Could live on them. Just having them now and then is a sacrifice. But gotta make some. :D

    Hope it's a great week for you.

  3. I just adore you and your style in which you blog.... it rocks! Happy New Year, doll! Make it count! :) You're.Worth.It.

  4. Just wanted you to know I'm thinking about you and sending all the good energy I have your way. Hang in there!

  5. Whatever is happening i hope it resolves in a positive manner. Gotta watch those nuts....i don't eat nuts anymore unless I weigh them as one handfull can be a couple of ounces which is many cal.


Thank you for taking a looksie!
I appreciate your comments.
