Primal Journal Log
Due to medical expenses (one of our children has ongoing issues from cancer/chemo) I had no money for groceries this week. The medications and bills took all we had. We don't have health insurance...we make too much for state health insurance an... Read more
UGH! UGLY CLOTHES....beware, this is a RANT.
Okay, I have had it. I am not buying anything else to wear until I am in a smaller size. Ugh. What is with these people making plus size clothes??? Are they blind? Do they really not understand that NO you cannot wear something with lines that g... Read more
Primal Journal Log
Well, my hair is officially thicker, may nails are growing like crazy, and my skin just keeps getting better. As my diet is the only thing I have changed, I will give it the credit it is due.
Can't say enough about whole fat mozzarella chee... Read more
Felt Really Sad
Our ten year old asked his father to take him to the park today. His father told him it was 'too late' even though it was only 6:15pm, he was off work today (doesn't have to be in till late tomorrow either), and it is perfectly pleasant out--bot... Read more
Heritage and Weight
Ahhh, saw an alternative doc today...and she told me that heritage is a HUGE part of how our bodies deal with what we eat. I come from both Irish/Scottish and Native American lineage....this apparently means my digestive system is less able to h... Read more
Primal Journy Log
Haven't weighed myself this week--I rarely do a certain week of every month as water retention always adds 3-4 pounds and even if I know the reason, I freak out if I see it on the scale.
Hubby was off yesterday and today. Yesterday he park... Read more
Someone on spark made the suggestion that as I like dancing so much, maybe I should just concentrate on this for the majority of my fitness work. I like the idea--makes sense to me. I love belly dancing...so I'm going to try and start there. I'm... Read more
Primal Journey Log 5/13/12
Just when I think my disbelief has reached it's peak, my hubby manages to to take it that much farther. You would think (given his dissatisfaction with my size) that he would be happy that I am losing weight; but apparently not.
He actually b... Read more

Ok, here is my Primal Snack Mix. I used this A LOT when I was breaking the bread habit. Saved me more than once and now is a nice school/work snack alternative to vending machines.

WHAT DOES A WISHYTHINGY WISH FOR?
An education: I love being back at school. I have gone from being the sad little juvenile delinquent that I once was, to an honor roll English/Writing major...whooohooo. Outside of my kids, school has become my greatest joy. I intend to get an M... Read more
WHEN YOU ARE FAT
It occurs to me that my hubby was much better at disguising some (now that I take a good, long look) rather glaring personality flaws; one of the biggest of which was how he tallies My Worth. While never a 'Skinny Minny' by any means, I have bee... Read more
A running list of bad behavior (things I shouldn't forget)
Alright; while every blog will not be about the 'black hole' that is my hubby, this blog I will reserve for moments of bad behavior on his part. I need this. I need this list so I see what he's doing in black and white. So I don't make excuses f... Read more
THE BLACK HOLE
The husband. The aforementioned forty-something who acts as though he is around five years old. What I was able to overlook in my twenties, simply isn't flying at thirty-nine. I used to make excuses like:
1)He's the baby of his family
2)His... Read more
