  • Primal Challenge Journal (Jie Jie)

    I've been toying around w/ this for a week. Today is the day to commit. I ordered the book last night. Looking forward to reading the book soon.

    My goal is get fit via crossfit and to fuel my body through PB. I recently tried the Zone and found myself way too obsessed w/ the number of almonds for a snack. I was drawn to PB's simplicity and realism.

    Age = 35

    Gender = F

    Height = 5 '1

    Weight = 141

    B: 4 Egg Whites and Steak scramble, 1/4 banana

    S: Beef Jerky and Almonds

    L: Tenderloin and Veggies

                  Good lookin&#39; food! Good job on the whole eggs! I find, the more egg-days I have, the more I am satiated for most of the day! I think it has to do with the fat content in the yolks! Mmmmmm.....

                  Carry on!


                  • #10

                          10/11 Day 10 into the 30 Day PC. I&#39;ve decided to weigh myself on Sundays only instead of getting on the scale each morning.

                          Today I am 139 lbs. I&#39;ve lost 2 lbs since officially starting this journal.

                          The goal for next week is to eat more primal (cut down on the cheats of Mexican food) and stop eating when I&#39;m full. Just b/c there&#39;s food on my plate doesnt mean I need to eat all of it if I&#39;m alredy full.

                          Sounds simple. Will need to work on the habit.
