Well, I've decided it's time to start my journal on here. I don't know why I've been nervous to do it before now, but I'm ready!
I first heard about living Primal living when John Durant was on The Colbert Report at the beginning of the month. A few days after the interview, when I was still thinking about what he'd said, I checked out his website and found MDA. Ever since I've been reading everything I can. I just started the book...I waited a week or two before ordering it.
I had about a week of "transitional" eating, using up what I'd bought that I couldn't afford to just get rid of. Then there were a few days where I thought I knew what I was doing, where I started journaling with pen and paper. After a couple days I started a FitDay journal and realized that I was still getting a lot of carbs (fruit, nuts, root veggies) without even realizing it. So I've been eating less carbs and more protein and fat for about a week.
I've been following a work out schedule, that I made for myself from the PB Fitness Pyramid, for two weeks. One of the days on the weekend I do sprints. Wednesdays I do HIIT. Monday and Friday I lift heavy things. And Tuesday, Thursday, and the other weekend day I go for a long walk or bike ride. Play is scattered throughout my week...tag with the kids, Twister, yoga, shorter walks.

One of my reasons for starting today is to report yesterday's food. I loved the freedom I had and enjoyed yesterday!
2 eggs fried in bacon grease, bacon, and sauerkraut
small organic yogurt
handful of nuts
Soul Food Dinner at my daughter's preschool (meatloaf, beef stew, BBQ chicken, baked chicken, greens) so good!!!
HIIT (7 minutes of continuous reps of 10 each wide push ups, narrow push ups, crunches, extended sit ups, leg ups, squat thrusts, squat jumps, and lunges)
