  • Primal Journal Spring!Cleaning! - Feedback and Support please!

    After a few months of going it alone, and seeing interesting progress, here is my attempt to stay accountable, and get some encouragement!

    I'm 5'11" 24 year old female
    Currently: 165 pounds- I'm athletic so its proportional and looks good, but I'd still like to slim down for the summer. No crash dieting! I want a way to reach my goal that is healthy and long term.
    Goal: 140 lbs, or be perfectly comfortable in the size 6 J Crew shorts I bought last year

    Activity level- Horse riding 5 days a week (1-3 hours around the barn), lift 2x week (one day arms, one day legs), low level cardio 3 hrs, shorter sprints and runs when I feel like it (1-2 days week)

    I used to be a vegan, and run the classic 5k+ most days, and was smaller but didn't look as toned, more cellulite and lost my ab definition. I experimented with Atkins but gained weight, and Primal has helped me slim back down (I was up to 175 from 155!) so am very careful about the kinds of fats I eat now. I miss fitting in my smaller clothes though, I want to slim down on Primal!

    Today's Food:

    B: 2 eggs with 1/2 cup mushrooms, chard, 2 slices bacon

    1.5 hr. at barn

    Endive/Raddichio salad w/ 1 Mac Oil/mustard/vinegar dressing
    6 oz salmon
    1/2 cup chard and 1/2 cup asparagus in 1 olive oil

    2 drumsticks Whole Foods rotisserie chicken (just herbs)
    1 cup asparagus w/ 1 olive oil
    3 cups salad mix w/1 mac oil
