Thursday 30
I want to take off walking today because the new boots are rubbing the left heel but the dogs are literally lying on the trailer steps whining for a run in the hills…
8:30-9:30 AM: wood splitting and other chores, hereafter chores
12:56-3:59 PM: 7.5 mile hike in shorts and sweatshirt, no rain, ran the inclines, Amos, the big dog had a hard time keeping up—poured down rain as soon as I got back, saw the Olympias on the way back from Page’s Flats, a depression that is 10 degrees cooler than the same elevation at the front of the cut.
6:30 -10:00 PM: 2 big bowls of raw radish, lettuce, cabbage, celery with vinegar, walnuts, 5 spicy meatballs and feta cheese, ¼ ounce pork rinds, 5 lite beers
Amos’s front right shoulder is stoved up and he is limping so no walk on Friday—he will whine to go—so I will rest and fast until 6 PM Friday and start week 5 in the evening.
Friday Notes
Its pouring, for 26 straight days of rain.
My vertigo has gotten more severe after the run, with loud ringing in both ears constant

I see: so you didn't really get off the grains, you simply displaced them into a liquified form.

I don't lose weight while drinking alcohol. All of my weight loss has been while not drinking. The liquid grain seems to keep me weight stable. The solid grain messes up my digestion.

When I get to Portland I'm going to try and lose 30 pounds eating out of the dollar store.
