  • My Journal in the Form of a Blog

    I have just started to pursue a lifestyle of being primal, and the way I am going to do my journal is by writing a blog that anyone and everyone can post comments, recipes, and anything else they would like to post to help and assist me and my family on my journey towards being healthier and happier by being primal.

    My Blog website is:
    Primal Fitness Project - Become a Blogger

    Please if you would like head over to my page and post some comments and suggestions for me, I have posted a poll on the current news page and have several 1st posts on my blog page.

    My entire blog site references back to this website because I believe that Marks book The Primal Blueprint has enlightened me on a way of living that just makes sense. Thanks for taking the time to look at my website and I hope that everyone's endeavors are as enjoyable as mine.

    Thanks Mark for publishing your book I believe that this is the way it should be.

    Day 1 of my Primal change

    This is the start of my blog, I've posted pictures of the food I've prepared from the Primal Cookbook at the site below:

    Well to start off my journey into the Primal lifestyle I purchased a cookbook published by Primal Blueprint Publishing, The Primal Blueprint Cookbook. I will be using this cookbook to prepare new recipes in the craft of the 21st century Hunter Gatherer. I have also purchased and installed a few apps for my android phone, Fast Paleo (over 2000 recipes), and Primal Paleo. I will be purchasing my food from many sources, Walmart, Mama Jeans, Dillons, Spring Valley, and the Farmers Market, a few of these stores can only be found in my home town. If you would like to find a place to shop in your home town just look up on google Organic Grocers, or find out if you have a farmers market that host local A few of the hardest things that will be tough to give up will be cheese, milk, and sweets. I am writing this to hold me accountable for my actions. My wife is pregnant and she will be doing this diet as well but with some slight modifications, Organic Dairy products, and a slightly easier exercise routine. To keep track of my workout routine I am using the Google Play App Jefit Pro. I don't consider myself overweight, but I could be healthier with what I eat and do for my life choices. I will update this blog every chance I get.

    My Workout routine for the week is as follows:

    Monday - Sprint
    Tuesday - Lift Heavy Things
    Wednesday - Walking/Hiking/Play
    Thursday - HIIT (To Failure)
