Set backs, CrossFit, and Status Quo

Published on 07/18/2012 by in Deann

I realize that it’s been far too long since either of us have updated our blogs. I won’t bother to dispense with the bullshit excuses and “we are BUSY!” reasoning. Summer and life are like that. So, what has been going on with our Paleo journey? Some setbacks. Yes, there have been a few times over the last while where I’ve bent to the peer pressure of not wanting to cause a fuss and just ate the damn burger anyway. Bun and all. Yes I’ve felt like hammered crap for a day or two after…and I dealt with it. Do I try my very best to avoid those buns? Of

Self Experimentation or stop being so damn polite

Published on 06/07/2012 by in Deann

OK, we’ve been on this Paleo schtick for a while, and while I have not been dropping bucket loads of weight, I HAVE been feeling much better and my body is “normalizing” as it where. Much like many of you other Paleo/Primal folks out there I was faced with corporate lunch with clients and forgot to tell the folks responsible for the nosh that I shouldn’t be touching the grains. So, some rather lovely panini’s arrived and like a polite and starving little soul I am, I partook in the company provided lunch. Two days later and I ALMOST feel somewhat normal. Note to self: upon the news that office

Waking Up To Wonderful Smells

Do you remember as a kid waking up to the smell of food cooking? How it made you feel all warm inside? Likely your mother was up at the crack of dawn preparing breakfast full of yummy goodness of things like eggs, bacon, sausage, toast with jam, or honey, and fruit. That’s what we woke up to this morning. Before retiring last night, Deann set up the crock pot and set to cooking a pork shoulder that I picked up at Goodness Me in Waterdown, Ontario over the weekend.  Always nice to find great pieces of meat on sale!  The pot and pork were prepped, and into its bathtub the shoulder went

Vibrams, long walks and new gadgetry

Published on 05/08/2012 by in Deann

Well, I did it…I talked Ian into letting me get some Vibram shoes.                           In a word…LOVE! They are freakin’ comfy, freakin’ practical, and boy do I get some weird looks HAHA. After a few days of wearing them for a few hours doing errands, a few walks around the block and such, my feet and legs didn’t really hurt. I spend my summers either barefoot or wearing my Teva’s (which I love too) so really, I didn’t have much of a “transition” period. I’ve really noticed a difference in my posture and the muscles in my feet

The slow but steady climb

Published on 04/15/2012 by in Deann

Yes, it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted…given the Easter holiday last week, seems I ran out of time to post much of anything. I think I had a bit of a bummer week. I didn’t feel as “good” all week. Got a bit of a cough, and all of this healthy eating has put my hormones back on track a bit. You see, I have PCOS, poly-cystic ovarian syndrome. In a nut-shell, I don’t ovulate or have regular menstrual cycles. So irregular in fact that I can go 4-6 months without menstruating. Some might think woo hoo! Not all that it’s cracked up to be folks. You see,
