Nom nom nom, one week into Paleo diet and it's going well, it's weird because I'm eating more calories and waaaay more fat, but very few carbs and mostly they are from fruit. But my skin, hair and nails have improved and I'm feeling really energetic. But I've also been hanging out in the sun every other morning so I'm trying to be sun smart but tots have gotten my white girl tan on :)
Hmm, in other news, was at Bluesfest watching Lupe Fiasco, and afterwards watched Cheap Trick almost get smushed by the collapsing stage. It was cool but gave me Aussie cyclone flashbacks.
Boyfriend is sickie, poor thing, wish I could be with him right now, it's so stressful knowing there's nothing I can do to make him feel better. Long-distance is lonely, long-distance with a sailor is lonely and stressful, I'm always worrying.
Anyways, this outfit is my green silky button down ($90ish, Sportsgirl), cut off boyfriend jean shorts ($12 Joe Fresh), ombre fringe earrings, and mauve shooties (Aldo).

Started the Primal Diet today! Well it's more of a lifestyle thing, you try and live like a caveman :) It's actually awesome and pretty legit. You exercise less but stay consistently more active throughout the day, so lot's of walking. And then when you do work out you're supposed to go easy and then sprint hard and lift hard as you can for a short period of time. Like a caveman chasing prey/lifting rocks .. I've also eschewed all lighters and am only using sticks. Haha, just kidding.
But then the eating is pretty much no carbs, and high protein and fat. It's pretty interesting, we'll see how this goes, especially since I'm a carb freak. Seems pretty badass.
So here goes day 1, been easy peasy so far but not a whole lot has changed. Except I went for a barefoot walk outside, since there's nothing more primal than that :)

Carleton is still driving me nuts. I left on a bad note and came back to an empty inbox, meaning the 10 people I emailed have failed to email me back. Thanks a lot.
This weekend was so amazing. S and I drove up after work on Friday, drove through a massive storm and stopped a couple times for fags and coffee and food and a dead dog that was actually a plastic bag. Arrived at the cottage with M and B and the four of us stayed up all ight eating junk food, drinking and gossiping. Then we woke up at the ass crack of dawn, began drinking, spent the day sunbathing and swimming in the lake, and then SF and H came up! That's when the true partying began, and we all got serious with the drinking, made lunch and dinner, and invited the neighbour boys on a high school reunion over for a bonfire and to get their asses whooped at flip cup. It was a lovely night, the boys brought a ton of beer and fireworks and were quite entertaining. Then we all jumped off the dock at about 1am, and swam around in the dark trying not to die or jump ontop of each other. After that H and I were pretty tired and I had a stomach ache so we went inside to chill out, and my stomach pains got so bad I spent the rest of the night being sick. Right onto Hil's lap. Poor girl. Ah the tribulations of true friendship. The girls tag teamed me and hung out on the bathroom floor with me all night, then B gave me a Zantac which was a lifesaver and I passed out. The next morning we were all pretty hungover, so H and I woke up and cleaned up the huge mess outside, then she left to catch a flight to BC (safe travels babydoll!) The rest of the day was spent lying out in the sun, and then we all brought lawn chairs down to the dock and had snacks and lay there all day, swimming occasionally and yelling german greetings to fellow boaters.
After a massive cleanup we drove back home around dinner time, and for me it's been laundry, laundry, laundry ever since.
Lovely weekend with my besties since high school. I can't even express the amount of love I have for you biddie-hoes <3

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.
When she was just small.
When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head"
