Everyday Paleo - Week 2 continues
Tuesday, January 03, 2012      4 comments

The holidays really caused me to spread this out more than ever. We are still on week 2, even though we really aren't cooking any recipes other than our EP, in basic order. What I HAVE done that departs from my earliest efforts is to plan out t... Read more
10-Minute Challenge Fits well with Primal Fitness
Friday, December 30, 2011      2 comments

I joined the 10-Minute A Day Exercise Challenge so that I would do SOMEthing each day rather than be perfectionistic. I have had some fun because the nature of the Primal idea is variety and play, and the 10-minute challenge suggests variety ra... Read more
Beanless Chili on top of Lettuce -- Wendy's Taco Salad Re-Make!
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      2 comments

Just a very brief blog to share that a WONDERFUL way to use up all this crap-ton of lettuce I got from greenbeandelivery is to ladle leftover warm Everyday Paleo chili over it. Took me right back to those yummy Wendy's taco salads, but without ... Read more

I suspended running at the end of November due to an awful respiratory infection that required 18 days of antibiotics, finishing off with Cipro. Cipro can weaken tendons and muscle fibers leading to tendon/muscle ruptures. I wanted no part of t... Read more
Paleo - Week 2
Tuesday, December 27, 2011      3 comments

Again, because we are necessarily making the big batches of food, and we don't spend the day at home eating the lunches and having the snacks together, I'm moving more slowly through the Everyday Paleo 30 day menu. Actually, it's working great, ... Read more
Sleeping Like a Cavewoman! 2928 in 2012!
Sunday, December 18, 2011      3 comments

One goal I've set for myself is to average no fewer than 8 hours of sleep per night. (2928 hours of sleep over 366 nights in 2012.) I am, by necessity, up in the middle of the night working as part of my duties as a programmer. But on all the ot... Read more
Every Day Paleo - Week 1 continued - Wonderful!
Friday, December 09, 2011      5 comments

The first 5 days of the 30 days-long meal plan Sarah Fragoso gives in Every Day Paleo gets a bit stretched out when there's just two of you, and disruptions two nights a week where the little girl goes to her dad's. But what a lovely 8 days it'... Read more
Keeping the Spark Alive in December
Friday, December 02, 2011      2 comments

I'm coming to grips with the idea that I don't get to get better and feel great this week. I'm on day 10 of what will be an 18 day course of antibiotics. The antibiotic Cipro can cause muscle and tendon damage, which means that I MUST take it ea... Read more

I purchased Everyday Paleo last week while my little one was off celebrating a Thanksgiving weekend with her dad and his girlfriend's family. I had the perfect opportunity to get rid of all the crap in the pantry and freezer. I gave food away t... Read more

After several weeks or illness and sinus ear infections, I'm not in a great position to tell whether or not Paleo makes me feel better or not. It's been the strangest transition. I got fever on Friday, November 11 and haven't felt well since, h... Read more
Thursday Morning Four Mile Race - while recovering from illness
Tuesday, November 22, 2011      2 comments

Tonight I went to the urgent care, as my sinuses and ears hurt very much from the past week and a half of illness. Two infected ears, infected sinuses. So, augmentin and pain reliever for me. The pain relief has kicked in--what a blessing. ... Read more
Lying around reading, doing "nothing", not a crime!
Saturday, November 19, 2011      3 comments

Last night, I was nearly tearful as I described to my mother this monster cold, and how it has cancelled my plans to put in an extra work day today (Saturday). We have a huge project at work, due mid-January, and my manager has asked us for any... Read more
Even a Sick Day Can Have a Bit of Pleasant Exercise
Monday, November 14, 2011      2 comments

I'm under the weather this weekend--had chills at bedtime and throughout the day the last couple of days. Minor sore throat. Decided today there'd be no running, just eating well, and taking care of essential tasks. (I scheduled today's day off... Read more
Wonderful 48 degree run!
Saturday, October 29, 2011      3 comments

I had a bit of dread about running out in 48 degrees. I dressed just right for it, though. Gloves, baseball cap, long-sleeved but lightweight tech shirt from the Flying Feather Four Miler a couple years ago, and my running shorts. And Bikilas w... Read more

In the last 6 days, I have had one vigorous 30 minute walk and THREE 45 minute runs that I would not have had if I did not have this new treadmill! It is pleasurable enough, and I'm enjoying trying some of the challenging "Workouts" that are p... Read more
