Primal eating challenge, day 14

It's funny....I was doing fine with no alcohol, until J and I were out the other night, in a bar, seeing a band. The band we went to see, Wild Flag, were awe-inspiringly great. More on them in another post, but suffice it to say that they were so good that I didn't need any other distractions/amusement. But the opener.... snoozeville. J and I went exploring around the (new! awesome!) Union Transfer venue in Philly and there it was....the bar. Whoo boy....what do you do to amuse yourself when you are bored in a bar?

We drank seltzer.

With lime. Wait no....there were no limes. I like seltzer fine, but this seemed grim at the time. I wanted an adult beverage.

But we resisted and we made it through. And now it is day 14. From a booze perspective, day 30 seems a long way away, but I repeat to myself the mantra, stolen a bit from Whole9: "This is not hard. Cancer is hard. Wheelchairs are hard. No booze for a month is not hard." Then there's all that insulin/Raynaud's shite from my last post to consider once day 31 rolls around. Let's talk about food. Today's food.

Breakfast: last night's dinner -- coconut curry ground beef with veggies, over eggs. Coffee with heavy cream.

Out the door at 6:30 a.m. To get my younger son to a volleyball tournament in rural PA at DeSales U. This was a college tourney and he is on a high school club team that more than held its own in this thing. Pretty cool. Also pretty cool: planning food out in advance. I went to Wegmans last night and bought two seven-ounce packages of grassfed roast beef, mixed 'em up with some assorted olives from the olive bar there, and boom! Lunch. The boy is not paleo, so he chowed down on hoagies. (Take your judgments elsewhere).

I ate a lemon Larabar at some point this morning too.

Then there was coffee from a local Turkey Hill store. I am not sure if it's the turkey or the hill that they put in the coffee, but it was pretty lame and weird. Even black it was still lame.

The tournament went on and on and on, so I ate a Steve's Original Paleo Kit too. On the way home, at about 6:30 p.m., I grabbed a couple hard-boiled eggs from Wawa, and some more black coffee. And then, we arrived home at 8 p.m. or so to Jamie having cooked us grassfed steaks, sweet potatoes and asparagus. Nice.

That was a boatload of meat today.
