                DAY 19

                Right.. Today MIGHT be the last day I can post before the 1st September as i'm off to reading festival for the rest of August.

                That said, it is inevitable that I won't be able to maintain my aim of 100% primal challenge dedication at a festival where the only foods conveniently available aren't so primally acceptable.

                However, I will be doing my 100% upmost to stay dedicated to the primal lifestyle as I can because i've enjoyed it sooo much more than I expected and mainly because I've done so well. Futhermore i'm now just 9% bodyfat and looking better than ever so of course I don't want to lose that.


                L: Cajun Chicken salad topped with cheese (the cheese wasn't intentional, we ate out and it didn't state it was topped with cheese on the menu

                S: 1/4 of a 450g yeo valley organic probiotic yoghurt and 2 squares of lindts 90% dark choc

                D: cajun chicken breast and a mixed side salad

                S: I got in and had incredible munchies so am not so proud of the next bit....

                2/4 more of my yeo valley organic probiotic yoghurt

                the rest of my lindts 90% dark choc bar


                didn't get much sleep (cause of all the sugar i guess) but have tried to counter it just now by going for a 10 - 15 minute walk to top village park, tried some sprints (twice) but heel still has a crack in and caused waaaay too much pain (probably made it worse - but hey i'm dedicated) did a few pull ups on the goal posts then walked home.

                Today and tomorrow will be my last chance for 100% primal so this is my aim along with a good few bodyweight routines thrown in...

                Good luck to everyone on finishing the challenge, it's been great fun and i've learnt a shed load... Almost finished reading the book now too.

                Grok on!
