Paleo diet- 2 week update

girl and I have been following the paleo diet now for 2 weeks, so far so good. The most obvious of benefits being steady, even keeled and sustained levels of energy. In other words, no carb crash. No eating a meal and feeling like like you could use a nap.

girl loves it because she has lost 5 lbs. already. Oddly enough, she is on bed rest with a horribly painful pinched nerve in her neck(C5 vertebrae). she cannot exercise at all. We eat certain healthy fats, protein and fruits and vegetables. That’s it in a nutshell.

Early on, I was having problems balancing the whole thing because I lift weights three days a week and I was experiencing cloudiness or grogginess the following day. I quickly learned how to eat A LOT more the following day. I am lean and muscular and I don’t have much in the way of fat stores. I found out that I just needed to consume more fruits and protein directly after the workout, as well as the following day. Hydration throughout the day is essential too. Coconut water in the morning and filtered water during the day does the trick.

Finally, it’s official, I am a cheap date!! We enjoy drinking alcohol on the weekends and since we haven’t any grains or carbs to “soak it up”, we are feeling really buzzed after only 2 or 3 drinks. It’s actually comical at times.

We will definitely be continuing this nutritional plan. We love it so far. We’ll keep you posted.

Dominance and submission – Underneath – Adam Lambert #ASMSG

Hmmm……. Very Thought provoking

Underneath each of us,

underneath our facades,

our hearts beat with our own, unique truths.

Our secrets, some never told,

our fantasies, so many we hold,

afraid to release,

afraid to share,

afraid our souls to bare.

The hurt, the loss, the fear of pain,

what must we give, in order to gain?

Dominant and Submissive Types?

The Submission of Elle

I’ve explored this question since the beginning and I feel it is one everyone needs to explore and try to answer. We all have many facets to our personalities and we will all have some common threads, but each of us is unique.

I more easily write from the perspective of a married D/s relationship, but I’m sure what I share will be beneficial to any Dominant or submissive. I more easily write from a Dominant (male) and submissive (female) point of view, but feel free to change pronouns.

I think we marry who we marry because we recognize qualities and behaviors in the other that we instinctively know will enhance ourselves and the would-be marriage. If your D/s discovery happend way down the road of matrimony you may be surprised to find that you are well-suited to one another as Dominant/submissive, even though D/s probably wasn’t on your radar…

The Latent Threat: Male Dominance and the Capacity for Violence

Donal Graeme

The Shadow Knight wrote a guest post for Sunshine Mary which she recently published. Titled “The Stabilizing Influence of Masculine Dominance in Women’s Lives“, it addresses how women have a physical and psychological need for men through dominant sex and a dominant masculine presence in their life. The initial comments are worthwhile too , because many of them try and grasp the extent and nature of masculine dominance. One potential aspect for masculine dominance that is brought up several times, and which sparked my interest, is a man’s potential and ability when it comes to violence. This got me thinking, and re-examining some of what I had previously written on the subject.

Then I read When Women Rage over at Sarah’s Daughter. While the overall purpose of the posts was different, there was a constant theme/idea which showed up in both: the male capacity for violence. Here is…
