  • Primal Journal - Canis Dirus

    Figured I should make a journal to track my progress, I am really bad at keeping up with stuff like this but I will try. If any of you more experienced PBer's have suggestions for me please don't be shy!
    I am following the PB to lose fat, hopefully gain some muscle, and improve my health.

    Stats: Female, 27, 5'4" and 122 pounds.

    On with the food!

    B: 1 Primal protein bar + crumbs (yum!) and a cup of coffee with cream. Half a pack of Sweet N' Low. Trying to wean myself off of artificial sweeteners, it would be easier if the coffee at work wasn't mud.

    L: Bell pepper stuffed with ground beef + onion with a little Kerrygold cheddar cheese sprinkled on top.

    D: To be decided!

    Snacks: I have organic/preservative free beef jerky and carrots. Not sure if I will eat them, though. I have a hard time getting hungry!

    Drinks: Plain black tea or water with lemon juice.

    Work out for today will be walking the Corgi!

    I love your username! I got to see the massive wall of dire wolf skulls at the La Brea tar pit museum years ago--staggering and so, so cool.

    Anyway, I just wanted to come say hi--we're just about the same size and age and so if you need a buddy we can prod at one another.

      Thanks! I've always had this fascination with prehistoric animals...the Dire Wolf being my favorite. I'm actually planning a trip to Cali with some friends and I'm definitely going to the La Brea museum!

      I would love to have a buddy! It helps to have someone cheer you on.

        Oh, me too. I am basically a five-year-old when it comes to dinosaurs...

        Also, I couldn't help but notice that your workout tunes tend toward the metal, as do mine. I think we could be great friends.

          Same here, I don't think you ever stop loving dinosaurs!

          Yeah I love metal, it's awesome that you do too. I don't really know many other people who have similar tastes in music.

            Did a bad job of keeping track of my food intake this weekend, it was a busy one! But I stayed on track for the most part. When I ate at my Grandma's on Sunday I did have some mashed potatoes with my pork chop. It was potatoes or Lima beans...ugh. So I chose the tastier starch.

            So far today the only thing I have eaten is half a pork chop and some fruit because I wasn't very hungry. Will update this later when/if I eat anything else today!

            As far as progress goes, it looks like I officially lost a pound. I should measure myself so I can keep track of inches lost. Some of my skin and allergy issues are clearing up...it's nice!

              I had a cup of coffee for breakfast and a primal protein bar, and that's it. Will probably walk to the store today to replenish my apple supply, might do a full body work out after that if I have time (friends coming over for steaks!)

              As far as dinner goes I will be having a rib-eye with raw veggies.

                Fell off the wagon a bit last night.

                Ate 2 cookies that were baked by a friend, majorly delicious and PAINFUL. I am bloated and I feel like all my digestive processes have stopped. Lesson learned. Fasting today in an effort to "clear" my system, will most likely have a snack before I head to the gun range with my Dad.

                Snack will be a primal protein bar, they keep me so full! If I decide to eat dinner I will eat what's left of my steak and a salad.

                  Have fun at the range! The first time you go off the wagon is a hard lesson learned.

                    Enjoy your range time!!!
                    Nothing relieves stress for me like blasting a few targets (well, ALMOST nothing)...

                      Cynarin - For some reason I have to learn all my lessons the hard way lol.

                      Kuno - Thanks It was a lot of fun, I can't wait to go back!

                        I really need to remember to get an avatar pic...

                        B: Coffee with cream
                        L: Had what was left of my steak, wasn't much so I had 2 strips of bacon with a salad. Dressing was olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice. It was awesome.
                        D: Undecided. If I get hungry I will most likely have a BAS.

                        Work out tonight...will probably attempt a quick full-body circuit and walk the doggies afterward! Doing research on converting my doggies to a primal diet, I feel like I am doing them a disservice by feeding them 'cereal' :P

                          Did very well on my diet this weekend...until Sunday! I had to eat with the family and my family can't have a single meal without at least 4 starches. :P We had chicken breasts breaded with panko (acceptable, and tasty at least!) rice casserole, rolls and acorn squash. I did eat rice rather than the roll, and well....I really don't like squash. So I didn't eat much of that, just enough to be "polite".
                          I shared a few bites of lemon meringue pie with my Grandma, didn't have enough to make me feel sick but I did pass out on the couch thanks to a sugar crash, but I went on a 2 mile walk when I got home and I think that helped.

                          As for how I am doing weight-wise: I've lost 2 inches off my stomach, I believe it was 2 inches of bloat/water weight rather than fat but I'll take it. Back is leaning out, love handles have completely vanished, legs are starting to lean out as well. This is all very amazing because I am hardly exercising. Just walking and doing yard/house work. Weight is pretty stable, I'm usually in the 121-123 area and that's where it has remained.

                            B: Nada
                            L: Chicken leg, salad with tomatoes and olives. Balsamic vinegar, olive oil and lemon juice for dressing.
                            D: I might have a chicken thigh with some bacon, maybe some eggs or another salad. I haven't decided yet. We went to the store last night and I feel overwhelmed with choice.

                            Plan to do some resistance exercises tonight, walk the dog and dust the house. So I have a busy evening planned.

                              Cleaning is satisfying exercise, non?
