About the FD

Hi, I’m Sambie.  🙂

And this is my blog about primal living in New England.  This blog started out as a creative endeavor to get me through grad school.  That’s why, if you click back far enough, you’ll find a bunch of posts about crafts, drawings, and a superhero based on a purple smoothie.  Then the blog was stagnant for awhile while I focused on other interests.  One of those interests is fitness and nutrition.  After an amazing 4 months of working out and overhauling my diet, I lost  a little momentum when I ran out of big goals to work toward.  While looking for some inspiration, I rebooted my fitness strategy by joining NerdFitness.  NF has given me new friends, a lot of helpful lifestyle advice, and newfound energy to keep getting healthy.  I decided to use the Frabjous Daily as my outlet for writing about my adventures in primal living.

My lifestyle is based on the Primal Blueprint by Mark Sisson.  I say “lifestyle” because primal is so much more than “just another diet” and encompasses all areas of life, including sleep hygiene, stress management, and physical activity.

I am also a nerd through and through, so you’ll likely encounter geeky references aplenty on this site.

Why is my blog called “The Frabjous Daily?”  I am a big Alice in Wonderland fan.  I came up with “The Frabjous Daily” because I wanted the blog’s name to imply daily or near-daily posting of wonderful, excellent, happy things.

frab·jous [frab-juhs]
adjective, Informal
Meaning: wonderful, elegant, superb, or delicious.
Origin: 1872;  coined by Lewis Carroll in Through the Looking-Glass; perhaps meant to suggest fabulous or joyous (from Dictionary.com).
