  • ZoŽ's Journal

    Well, here comes May 2010. Time goes by so fast!
    I am tracking my eating and exercise habits in hopes of loosing weight and becoming primal for life. I want to be happy, healthy, and beautiful... but most of all, I want to enjoy sports and activities fearlessly.

    I am a young female, 169cm (between 5'6" and 5'7'") tall. I am looking forward to loosing 30-40 pounds. I want to be a primal role model... and that includes rockin' a bikini!

    I've been experimenting with primal for a few months so now I have a plan based on the fact that nuts are NOT my friends (they give me very bad digestive problems and make me crave carbs like crazy!) and fruits and cheese make me eat too much. For my first 30 days as full-on primal I am going to be trying meat and veggies only. For my 20%, the occasional buttered sweet potato or piece fruit can fit in there too. No wheat or ice cream will touch my lips. Did you read that? NONE. I am done with the addiction. Here's to freedom!

    I walked quite a bit today. I also chased after several buses and ran toward trains.
    Traveling 100 miles without a car in the U.S. is ridiculous.

        You are going to make a time table for you life?? What do you mean by that? I am going to visit your journal to see what you mean...
        Good to hear from you. Ta-Ta for now!

          You're a wise woman... Facebook is the face, pun, of all evil.
          Don't do it.

          Lol. I mean, and this is a little insane, like a table for all the days of the week and what I should be doing that day.
          Like 8AM: Getting up, 8:30AM: exercising... etc.
          I'm wild, what can I say?

            What time is it where you live, NoSalad? You should sleep!
            Haha, yea I've done the exact same scheduling thing. I've probably done just about everything to try to get in shape. But maybe it would work now because we are armed with... let's call it... ultimate primal knowledge! (and I secretly don't want the whole world to find out so we can be the hot ones! Is that selfish? Nah, It's more fun to be the crazy ones who gorge on bacon in a world full of vegans!)
            It's good that you have time on your hands to figure out what works for you. Experimentation can get you a schedule that will keep you feelin' happy and beautiful for life! We are young; we still have time to figure it all out.

              I played around with the sledge hammer in my backyard. I didn't get a very good workout, though, because it was cold outside and I didn't last long. I'm a wimp.

                    Nosalad,
                    I posted something in your journal that might help. I am pretty bad about getting on a schedule, too. I know that If I stay up late too many nights in a row my weight loss come to a hault! Loosing weight is my only motivation to get to bed!

                    4/5

                    Food:
                    B: bacon & 1 brštwurst
                    L: 2 brštwurst
                    s: 2 oz almonds & 4 tablespoons peanut butter
                    s: BAS (lettuce, olive oil dressing)
                    D: bacon (it was almost all fat!)

                    Fitness:

                    Rest day.


                    Today wasn't spectacular. I was very hungry even after a fatty breakfast and lunch (which were only two hours apart today!) so I went for the almonds. Bad idea. I know almonds just make me hungry but becasue meat wasn't doing it for me, I thought I needed something else. I should have gone for the buttered veggies instead! I was super hungry and wanted carbs after the almonds so I somehow rationalized eating too much peanut butter (so the damage was 30g of omega-6 for the day!). My stomach was full after that but still tired and hungry for energy! I took a nap. When I got up from the nap I was still craving carbs a little so I ate a big salad which filled me up enough to get me though the whole afternoon. I think I started off hungry and tired today becasue of yesterday's workout. I was exhausted after it and so drained that I couldn't function very well yesterday and that continued on to today. I think I'm still in a sugar burning mode so the workout drained the little energy I had. This sucks. I want to be an energized fat-fueled machine!

                          4/7

                          Food:
                          B: 2 brštwurst
                          L: bacon
                          s: rotmos
                          D: 1 small egg & 2 brštwurst

                          Fitness:
                          Another short walk (about 30 minutes). I haven't been motivated with my low energy levels to do much else lately.


                          Sooo... I have been tracking my calories for the week (week 1 is over!). I find it stupid to post my macros every day since my days vary so much and looking at a week's average makes more sense.


                          Estimate of my daily averages from 4/1 to 4/7:

                          Calories: 1525
                          Protein: 75g
                          Carbs: 24g
                          Fiber: 8g
                          Fat: 128g

                          Macro Ratio: 20:04:76


                          I am a big believer in the lower protein theory seen on the PaNu blog, Hyperlipid blog, and in Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas. My protein for this week wasn't too bad, but Ideally I would like to see it get under 60g. Next week I will try to get more buttered veggies and I will add a little bit of carbs (to get me to 50g/day or so) in the form of sweet potatoes and possibly fruit (I've been looking forward to it... even though I am enjoying what I eat, this week has been a little bit boring). Calories are good, though lower than I expected. I am trusting my appetie.

                              OH NO. Too late NoSalad!
                              I SUCKED these last two days. I totally fell of the wagon! I think I was being too strict last week. I got really bored by day 7 and wanted something... oh, I know, nuts! No. No. Nuts always make things horrible for me. I cannot digest them, they make my hungry and give the worst cravings. I was able to stop them last time I had nuts but not this time... they led me to ice cream and more ice cream and other things I won't name.
                              I am like you; we do good and then fall off an feel like sheee-ite.
                              I even ate.... pasta. Pasta is death indeed. I feel horrible.

                              Tomorrow is back on track eating more little treats throughout the week that I enjoy. I need something I can stick with forever. I don't care if it takes me a year to loose 35 pounds. I will make this work.
