  • Primal Journal ~ Roxy for better skin and staying healthy as long as I live

    Joined the group last night and so I will start reading the book first. There are lots of good material so I will probably start slow.

    It's the first time for a long time, I woke up without alarm clock and got to work before 8:30 AM.
    I haven't eaten anything yet just drinking water. I usually don't have breakfast. I will read the book and see what is good since I really don't feel like eating anything until lunch.

    I currently have quite a bit breakouts on my face this past 2 weeks. Hope to have it clear without using chemical.

    Need to get back to work. Post more end of day.

      Hey Roxy. I just started too. I made a group to try to get all the New Year's newbies together so we can all stay motivated.

      Welcome. Come join.

        Day #2. I just joined the New Year's newbies today.
        My goal is still keeping good weight and health.
        I want to increasing vitamin D level since it's related to my S.A.D issue especially living in Seattle area in the winter time.
        I want to control excessive tearing of the eyes symptom caused by some type of vitamins deficiency.

        I did a few good things today to log on.
        1. Woke up earlier than usual.
        2. Didn't have any dairy (usually it's the mocha breve).
        3. Took vitamin D supplement and went for a short 5 minutes tan to increase my vitamin D level. It's currently low at 23 ng/mL.
        4. Drank 32oz of water (usually I don't really drink much)
        5. Yesterday I had a good amount of dance to keep my activity level up but not working out hard.
        6. Had broccoli with a little bit of olive oil for breakfast (usually I don't have breakfast)

        Not so good
        1. At Garlic Naan and a little rice at the restaurant
        2. Feeling sleepy after meal

        Very likely I will have some dance practice in tonight ... not as active today compare to yesterday.

          Day #3 -- This is for yesterday since I logged just reading people's comments but at the end of the day too sleepy to get online.

          Workout: dance for 2 1/2 hours not too hard ... just some fast/slow dance movements mix and I wasn't tired at the end.
          B: just water
          L: 2 bowls of seafood soup (homemade) -- with celery homemade broth, mussels, salmon, squids, shrimp, a little bit of potatoes (couldn't resist but I didn't eat too much of it compare to usual).
          S: 8oz mocha breve from Starbucks -- this is my weakness and it will take awhile to get rid off.
          D: Curry Chicken at a restaurant (it has coconut milk, curry, chicken, carrot, a handful of little cubes of potatoes ... it's not bad but I didn't do well when I used the french bread to dip into it).

          Overall, I did better than usually by aware of what I'm eating and I didn't eat too much carb.
          I'd give myself a 65% rating for day #3 effort

            Day #4 -- woke up around 8:30 AM because I forgot to turn off the alarm clock, but then I didn't get out of bed until an hour later. Super sleepy today.

            Workout: Dance for 2 hours -- lightweight but I sweat a bit after an hour in. I did feel a bit better after workout.

            B: just water
            L: 1 cup of butternut squash soup 1 1/2 banana (around noon).
            S: 4oz of tuna filet with sesame seeds mix seasoning
            S: 1 cup of chai tea and 1 baklava
            D: butter chicken, 1 piece of garlic naan, 1 piece of birthday cake with real homemade frosting (eggs, butter & sugar), some fruit, 2 eggrolls

            I felt pretty full today after dinner and felt that was overeating. I guess I ate more today than yesterday. Forgot vitamin D supplement and no tanning for vitamin D making today, so I do felt a bit blue.

            Rating for today: 60%. Hope for a better tomorrow.

                    Day #5 -- woke up early for a conference call this morning before the alarm clock went off so it's a good start.

                    B: water
                    L: Vietnamese "Bun Bo Hue" = Very Spicy Beef Noodle soup, but I didn't eat much noodle comparing to usual -- mostly chomping down the meat
                    S: Ok I had to give up to my mocha breve today, 8 oz. Almost not going to get it but then the big truck cut me off before I could turn to my office, so I decided to go straight to get my coffee Gotta get some stress relieve somehow somewhere. (I know I shouldn't get it).
                    D: not sure yet ... but I know for sure I won't eat anything until after 9 PM tonight
                    Workout schedule is planned from 6:30PM-9:00PM for some Flamenco and Modern Egyptian Dances so I should be good there.

                    Weight is staying constant at 101.6 lbs and I have no craving for anything at this time nor feeling hungry during the day.
                    Some breakouts seem to going away slowly and nothing new showing up

                    I really like this group so far because I do like to eat real food and I have to say I'm a meat eater not a vegan. I'm Asian, so I can't have much dairy and that helped discourage me from digesting dairy products (not so good tummy ache if I have too much cheese or milk ). Gotta listen to my body -- I stop feeding my body stuff that causes me discomfort.

                    Thanks for the welcomes and support!
                    For Good Health and having tasty food! Cheers!

                      Wow. You look fabulous for 41 ... or any age. Is that a recent picture or did you take that 20 years ago.

                        Day #6 -- I went to bed super late so I woke up late.

                        B: water
                        L: Beef with broccoli and just a little bit of brown rice.
                        S: break it by having my mocha breve again today -- not doing so good in this department
                        D: not sure yet ... but I start to feel hungry a bit earlier than yesterday

                        No workout yet.
                        Weight this morning was at 101 lbs. I feel alert and productive. I do need to drink more water ... not doing so good today.
                        One of the experiment I think I want to try is to figure out how to get rid of my excessive eye tearing through eating right. I will probably create a new thread for this to get advice from the Primal Nutrition Thread. Doctor said I have some kind of chemical imbalance in my diet.

                        That is for now.

                          Day #7

                          B: water
                          L: 1 boiled egg, mocha breve, tiny piece of cranberry bread with honey peanut butter, grapes and 1/4 of an apple
                          D: plan to eat some broccoli and meat

                          Dance for an hour and now I'm starving. I guess I haven't eaten much today

                            Day #8 -- log for yesterday

                            B: water
                            L: around 1PM --Indian Buffet
                            D: around 10PM -- spinach, a piece of chocolate, mac&cheese with meat, and garlic naan

                            Water: 48 oz no other drink
                            Got some vitamin D supplement and went to the tanning bed for 5 minutes.

                            I definitely blew it after I got to the buffet and had the garlic naan after my dance class. I did workout for 3 1/2 hours moderate pace just because I really like it so I probably burned off some; however, I did pay the price for it because I got breakout the next day (today).

                            Really need to drink water and no more bread.

                            The day overall was good though since I was alert the whole day.

                              Day #9 -- not a very good day
                              Day #10 -- We found a local grass fed beef and made the beef stew. Definitely tasty and worth to try more recopies.
                              B - a piece thumb size of chocolate
                              L - steam broccoli with feta cheese and olive oil and tuna filet with cajun spice. Pretty filling and tasty.
                              S - chai tea and baklava
                              D - a bowl of beef stew and a slide of garlic bread and a tiny piece of chocolate

                              About an hour workout (dance) this morning and I will probably do again another hour or two.
                              When get a 5 minutes tan for vitamin D
                              Not feeling very up beat today. The weather here is pretty cold, but the sky was beautiful and sunny.
