  • Primal Challenge Journal (scru_loose)

    Today i'm intermittent fasting so it's green tea and water until dinnertime when i'll be diving into my huge plate of salmon salad.

    Various bodyweight exercises today, mainly the crazy 8 endorsed by Brad Pillon.

    Hey dude! Good to have you on here! You should state what you ate and did for workout at the end of each day, it'll be good to look back on at the end of the 30 days!

    Sunday is comming...

      Ok so Day 1 didn't go too far out than expected. I fasted all day till I got to dinnertime then had a smoked haddock salad wich was truly amazing. Followed by a banana for desert.

      Living with students who decide to go out just for 1 drink is never as innocent as it seems however, as this 1 turned into about 4 or 5.

      Handful of assorted almonds brazil and macadamias just before bed.

      WOD: various bodyweight routines. Off to swim now

        Day 2

        Breakfast: IF

        Lunch: Cajun chicken and peppers omelette with glass of red wine

        Dinner: Smoked Haddock salad

        probably had about another 5 or 6 beers over course of night as we went out, however i'm starting to take more control over this

        WOD: swimming didn't happen as I didn't wanna go on my own however i did fit in a blinder of the crazy 8 bodyweight circuit :-)

        Muscles are tiny bit sore today so i'll rest and eat as best as possible :-)

            Day 3

            Felt good about day 3, ate some good food and gave my muscles a chance to recoup

            Breakfast: 2x Green tea, Apple and small handful of almonds

            snack: 3 squares of Green & Blacks 85% dark chocolate

            Lunch: onion, garlic, peppers, and cajun chicken omelette

            Dinner: 3x 82% lean pork sausages with mixed veg (broccoli, coliflower and baby carrots) Glass of Red wine followed by just 1 can of lager (better)

            WOD: Only did a 6 minute planks exercise, as I felt I needed to give most muscles a rest.

              Right, this was potentially my greatest primal day so far until I decided to A, drop out of a window and crack my heal bone ever so slightly, and B, consume copious amounts of lager and half a bottle of red wine.

              2x Green Tea

              Swimming using sprint interval technique for 35-40 minutes

              1 more green tea

              Small handful of assorted nuts

              6x squares of green & blacks 85% dark chocolate

              small orange juice

              82% lean pork sausage with spinach leaves and italian salad with balsamic vinegar dressing

              Copious amounts of alcohol... oh dear.

                L:: Apple and few squares of 85% dark choc

                Not too bad apart from maybe tooooo much dark choc.. will avoid buying this for a week or so when it's gone.

                WOD: none as I've recently gained a small crack in my heel causing me to hop about like a pirate. (hoping it heels soon so I can get back on my bodyweight circuits)

                      DAY 8

                      Feels good to have been going at this for a solid week now

                      It's hard to get any decent exercise in with this crack in my heel bone as it's painful to walk. So decided swimming would be a super substitute and did it for about 30-40 mins in the morning fasted state :-)

                      B: 4 egg omelette, with bacon peppers and garlic

                      S: Eat Natural yoghurt coated bar

                          DAY 10

                          If there's one thing i've noticed so far.. it's been a weird sleeping pattern and hard to wake up in the mornings. I'm putting my faith in the PB to pull through and once i'm passed it, have more energy

                          LATE B: small O'juice, banana, eat natural cereal bar, 2 squares of dark choc, 3 egg bacon omelette with peppers and garlic.

                              Day 12

                              Today was great. Me and Kane found an organic farm shop really near to where we live and also discovered they run a farmers market every saturday. :-)

                              B: IF


                              D: smoked haddock salad, with spinach leaves and chopped celery.

                              S: we found some organic ice cream at the farm shop we visited, wasn't sure if it was completly primal but almost.. had 3 or 4 scoops just before bed.

                              WOD: had a rest day today, like i keep saying though, can't wait till my foot is better :-)
