Not Feeling Well This Week

I can definitely confirm I have a cold. I am once again tracking this for the record. Also, I am following the philosophy that I should not take any medication, but just let my body do what comes naturally. I have been drinking plenty of fluids. Mostly in the form of tea, but also water and a little Sprite, but I only drank half because I can't get past the thought of the HFCS. My wife had it and gave it to me and Haylee. It's too bad we caught it 'cause I was just thinking how great it was that no one in my household had been sick this winter. I am laying off the exercise and getting a lot of sleep, but I am going to work even though I would love to just hang out at home.

Primal Snack W/ a Twist

I have already shown this before, but I came up with a new twist! First, I wrap the chicken square and Jalapeno in bacon, then skewer it. I then put it on a deep dished pan so the grease drips off. Next, I put it in the preheated 300° oven for 15 minutes. When the 15 minutes are up I add the asparagus to the bacon grease and add a little garlic to it and place it back in the oven for another 15 minutes. I recommend making a Primal dipping sauce. I used a BBQ sauce I found without HFCS, but it still had other ingredients we don't really want. I washed it down with a hard cider. BTW, I made a lot more than this, but forgot to take the picture until this point. I hate it when I do that.

New Years Resolutions

Be more Primal and fast more often. That's about it. I got back to 194 over the Holidays. I am going to get down to 180 by end of January. It helps that I am taking the Primal Challenge from John Durant's site. I think that combined with some fasting will be sufficient. Especially knowing that 5 of those pounds are from this weekend and if I act right away they should drop quickly. I imagine they are water weight and cookie weight. I tried to stay away from non-primal foods, but I went to a few parties in the last few days and it was hard to avoid the carbs even though I was careful and not glutenous, but the alcohol definitely didn't help.
