So, I've decided to start going Primal... well, at least kind of. It's harder when you're still young and living under your parent's roof. I'm going to try, though - the ideas presented in this blog make sense to me, so I figured I'd give it a go.
I know, that doesn't sound very committed. I WILL do this, though. I don't have any weight goals in mind - I'm one of those incredibly lucky people that everyone hates because I can eat anything I want to and still manage to fit into those size three jeans. However, I eventually realized that getting huge amounts of calories a day from chips, chocolate and other junk (no pop - I avoided that at least!) wouldn't do my body any favours in the long run. I decided to research getting healthy, and here I am. My parents are supportive (to a point - I haven't told my mom about the whole dairy thing yet - she's a doctor, she'd hit the roof - but they accept the whole no-grain deal) but say they are going to be making sides of rice, bread, etc. for themselves, so my willpower will be tested.
So, this week my goals are to eat Primal 2/3rds of my meals, move slowly three times, HIIT once and sprint once. Big goals, I know, but go big or go home <insert sarcasm here>.
I'll probably just blab on like this most days. Posting this here is very important - it forces me to commit to this. Anyway, attempting to go Primal as a teenager - who hates veggies. Officially starting tomorrow, as I need to make a recipe list for groceries.
So you just read through all of this to hear me say that tomorrow's my first REAL post. Ha.
