    Groktimus Primal's - Losing in reverse

    As a Doctor once told me, "I see you are losing weight in reverse!". Unfortunately I think I've reached the stage after losing about 75 LBS where real effort is required. I am suffering a bit of carb creep with my penchant for apples and I am consuming the food of a 275 pounder as appose to 200 pounder looking to drop. So the battle begins a new...

      Groktimus Primal's - Fitbit One is the "One"

      I just received the 2 Fitbit Ones I had on pre-order and let me tell you the fit, finish and features have all been flawless for me. I say run out and grab one of these suckers. My only advise is to get the burgundy color if you can because as much as I love black the burgundy is beautiful and not too girlie for the guys either.

        Groktimus Primal's - 4 Hour Chef

        Some Primal folks may want to check out Tim Ferris's 4 Hour Chef book. In it he details his hunting experiment among other things. He's a lot like Robb Wolf in that he's a smart guy just with a broader ever changing focus.

        • Groktimus Primal's - A disgusting holiday season

          Groktimus Primal's - A disgusting holiday season

          Not to be a downer but I have a feeling we are going to see a truly disgusting holiday season this year. The economy is bad and Christmas is coming. Pretty much all the companies have given up any pretense of caring about their workers. They open at ridiculous times and show no concern that their workers enjoy time with their families. It's clearly all about turning a buck and they take no shame in it. Talk about lost meaning. Meanwhile all the poor underpaid or unemployed slobs will be lining up for the few real deals like cattle on their way to slaughter. I expect to see more trampling deaths and rude behavior than ever before. That's Christmas spirit for you! Does anyone have the brains or self awareness to realize when you flip someone off and steal their parking spot that you might as well just go home and beat your family because you have lost yourself.

          • Groktimus Primal's - Thankful versus screw off and die

            Groktimus Primal's - Thankful versus screw off and die

            Here's the plan... I am finding life really depressing as my health could be better and my job is totally dead-end. I do have wonderful people in my life and a decent support structure. I know plenty of people worse off but still I can't help feeling I should have done better like some of my friends. It's worse when you know it's your own fault more so than even the economy. So many of my family have passed away that some days I just feel like I'm trying to spit shine a turd of a life. At least I have steady employment (for now) and I'm not on the dole.

            So, I think it is time I seriously lose some more weight and make a real attempt at being as healthy as my body will let me. I might as well take all this negative energy and focus it into the one thing I want the most which is a lean health body/mind. Who knows what could happen. I do feel more motivated when I'm physically at my best but I have only spent a small fraction of my life in decent shape. Maybe it's the Charlie Brown holiday blues but I tend to like the holidays (at least on the surface).

            • Groktimus Primal's - Barefoot Shoes

              Groktimus Primal's - Barefoot Shoes

              I finally broke down and bought a pair of Merrel mocs with Vibram soles for that barefoot experience. I have used similar models (non-barefoot type) for years with Walk-Fit arch supports. I've spent most of my life heavy and semi-flat footed and they seemed to help. I think they might even have decreased my back pain. I think as weather permits I will experiment wearing them as weekend shoes and see what happens over time. I know when I studied Tae Kwon Do there did seem to be a certain strengthening of the foot and a natural rooted to the ground type of feeling. I am eager to see whether years of listening to conventional foot wisdom was wrong too. I just love the price gouging of the barefoot shoes while they are riding high in demand. They make a "nothing" shoe and charge you more for it!

                This is too funny. Someone has created obese mannequins and some folks are offended. Perhaps those that are offended should redirect that energy to making the mannequins a moot point?

                  Groktimus Primal's - Multi-Topics

                  Scientists have unlocked more of the genetic code of wheat. Now the genetic modifications can come even faster thus creating more abominations. I suppose it might be nice to feed the hungry (even if it's shit food) for a little longer while we're on our highway to hell.

                  What do you know? They have found resistant bacteria and hormones in pork. Garbage in / garbage out of course.

                  I hit a new low of 80 LBS lost and it's frightening to think how much a good/bad scale reading effects my mood for the day. They say it's unhealthy to fixate like that but if it's not one of the most important things I know I will not succeed as that is my nature.

                    Groktimus Primal's - Tis the Season

                    To fall off the wagon that is. It's great and also kind of sad but I've gotten to the point that I don't even view falling off the wagon as an option. Habit and determination have become self fulfilling reality. It's been so long I can't remember the last time I had any measurable sugar.

                      Groktimus Primal's- New mental illness

                      The DSM (psych manual) will now contain binge eating disorder as a real disorder. Perhaps this will lead to it being taken more seriously and new studies and (heaven forbid) insurance coverage? You can all relax though because sex addiction isn't "real" yet!

                        Atkins have updated their peanut butter bars to include a layer of cream peanut butter under the chocolate. They look great but I tried one and could not tell the difference. I'm wondering if I got an old bar stuffed in a new wrapper!

                          I have noticed if there is no work to do and nothing to worry about man kind rushes in to "fix" it. If there's absolutely nothing going on they will have freakin' fire drill if necessary!

                            I am not waiting for New Year's to make my resolution. I am further cleaning up my diet and determined to start making clear progress again immediately. I may be considered insane by some for attempting to do this during the holidays but I am making it my top priority.

                              With gadgets like the Fitbit and all the "I" attachments for the iphone and whatnot it's finally becoming practical, easy and affordable to have a quantified self. The question is now what will people and the medical industry do with the data? I've reached the age where at this point I'm afraid of the data! I think if they ever put me through a Star Trek type scanner they will immediately drop me from my health insurance and tell me to make my final arrangements.

                                Groktimus Primal's - Going broke by saving money

                                The season has it's advantages and disadvantages that's for sure. You really have to pay attention to see that what you're buying really is a deal and that it has some substantial use or meaning. After doing Christmas shopping I still watch the Amazon deals to see if anything worthwhile comes up. It's a bad time of year to spend more money than you have to but if you see a legitimate good deal on a product you know you will need or truly want it's a real shame to pass it up. The odds are the deal will not be so sweet if you simply buy it two days before you need it. As long as you're not cutting yourself dangerously short or going into debt it certainly makes sense. One just has to make sure the buying is kept in check. Shopping feeding frenzies will wipe you out faster than having your cave collapse! I just bought batteries that I didn't technically need but I use them so consistently and they have such a long shelf life I could not pass up Duracell's at 41 cents a piece!
