  • Primal Challenge Journal Down Under: A Mac



    Listed my goals in the other thread, but I guess its good to have a summary at the start.


    - Reduce body fat.

    - Eat primal 13 out of 14 days.

    - Crossfit 5-6 times per week.

    - No booze.


    A little about me. I am 26 year old, 6', 100kg male working as an Engineer in Melbourne Australia. Started crossfit about 18 months ago. Been loving it and been reading habits have changed. I have eaten 80% paleo for a year, and zone on and off, but i'm a compulsive teeter totter.


    End of the year i plan on travelling for a while, and there is also a competition on at my gym that i've entered. So from last week until the comp I am entering a hard routine to get myself where I want to be.
