    DAY 1 PRIMAL CHALLENGE


    Day one went ok. I did a good job on my nutrition for the day... no sugar or grains and I feel fine. I did have a craving for a cold beer... lol.


    1) Nutrition:

    B: Scrambled Eggs with Sauteed Onions, Chunks of Chopped Coconut

    L: Chicken & Broccoli Stir Fry (tried the Red Palm Oil... mmmm good), FIsh Oil

    S: Apple With Sunflower Seed Butter, Resveratrol Suppliment

    D: Spiced Ground Beef (Kema) with Cucumber Salad, Almonds

    ... Peppermint Tea before bed


    2) Workout:

    Did not work out


    3) Digital Distraction:

    Watched less than 1 hour of TV all day and spent less than 1 hour on the internet (not counting time spent for work)


    4) Sleep:

    Got a good sleep last night. Getting to bed at a decent hour tonight... but need to do better. I want to start getting up earlier so I have to meditate and make a good breakfast before leaving for work.


    Need to get my check up and body fat measured ASAP so it is not too far into the challenge.

    DAY 2 PRIMAL CHALLENGE


    Day 2 went ok as well. Aside from not getting a good nights sleep, which snowballed into a large coffee with cream and sugar in the morning, I did well on my food choices. We are in the middle of moving into a new house with a 4 mont old baby so time is really tough to manage. I did not get a chance to work out. I also did well spending some time outside and avoiding "digital distractions."


    1) Nutrition:

    B: Scrambled Eggs, Macadamia nuts, Coffee With Cream & Sugar

    L: Mixed greens salad with Mahi-Mahi, Iced Tea, Macadamia Nuts

    S: Resveratrol Suppliment

    D: Chicken & Broccoli Stir-Fry, Cucumber & Tomato Salad, Almonds, Fish Oil, Multi-Vitamin


    2) Workout:

    Did Not Work Out


    3) Digital Distraction:

    About 30 minutes of TV and the only time on the computer that was free time is the time spent typing all this in.


    4) Sleep:

    Did a horrible job with my sleep last night. I stayed up WAY too late and that led me to the coffee which led to the cream and sugar... my only "transgression" for the day.


    I am going to sleep as soon as I start a "SNACKS" discussion in the forum. That is proving to be a challenge... a good variety of Primal Snacks...

      2) Workout:

      Did Not Work Out


      3) DIgital Distraction:

      About 30 minutes of TV and the only time on the computer that was free time is the time spent typing all this in.


      4) Sleep:

      I got a good 8-9 hours last night and I am on track for the same tonight.


      Felt really good today with a good nights sleep and sticking to the PB nutritional plan. I also had the chance to spend more time outside today which was nice so I got some good sun. I just need to get my work out routine going again and I will be all set. One day at a time....

                DAY 7 PRIMAL CHALLENGE


                Did ok today except for dinner. Had a real hectic day so for many factor I ended up eating some Mexican food... more specifically chicken enchiladas with a few corn chips. Part of me was also curious to see how I would feel having grain after a week of being off of it. The feeling was not too dramatic, but I definitely felt very full/bloated, sluggish, and tired. It was significant enough to make me consider not doing it again...


                1) Nutrition:

                B: Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Salad, Resveratrol

                L: Burger, Bacon, Salad

                D: Chicken Enchiladas and some Corn Chips


                2) Work Out:

                None


                3) Digital Distractions:

                Minimal on TV and Internet...


                4) Sleep:

                Did ok... but only got about 7 hours.

                          You seem to be doing well nutrition and digital-distraction wise (well, except for tortilla chips and rice). You're doing splendidly on the digital distractions front (I need to move more in that direction).


                          I was wondering though if the paucity of working out in your schedule is due to some injury or if it is difficult for some reason. A good workout could help you sleep better.
