I'm not even sure how I stumbled onto this website - I wasn't specifically looking for a diet or anything - but for the past 4 days straight, I don't think I've been on any site but this one! It's a bit cliche but it feels like this would "fit"(?)
Bid farewell to pizzas and cookies last night, woke up, weighed myself, kicked myself, and then tucked into a primal breakfast.
I have very recently called time on playing rugby after a couple of knee injuries, and have turned to throwing at the ripe old age of 28 as my new sport. Doesn't get much more primal than throwing, does it?!
Specifically, for the next 30 days my goals are to lose 5-10lbs. Longer term, I'd like to drop around 20-30lbs so I can look good nekkid and get stronger and faster so I can throw hammer, discus, shot and javelin further than my friend who started training a few months ago and outweighs me by around 100lbs.
Exercise plan is to lift a few times a week (all strength/power stuff), throw a couple of times, do some slow stuff most days for 30-60 minutes, and throw in a couple of Litvi Sprints every few days. Not sure on exact schedule until I get confirmation of throwing practice days for off-season, so I'll wing it for now.

- good first day I think, felt hungry before lunch and again before getting in from work but I ate a salad for the first time in a looong time... this time I liked it!
- workout was ok, all weights felt pretty comfortable so will up them a bit next time out.
See you tomorrow
