  • Lo qué será Journal

    A journal for random thoughts/ experiments.

    Been experimenting lately with a few things and wanted to write down my thoughts. I know your only supposed to do one experiment at a time but real science is for losers

    Experiment 1: Been dong body weight (PBF) rather than lifting heavy about three months ago.This isn't an experiment I wanted to start but Was forced on me due to some wrist pain that only hurts when I hold my wrist a certain way. I can avoid it by not doing certain movements until I can get to a doc. What I found though was that my body comp has improved, which makes me happy because now I feel less stressed about leaving my gym while traveling this summer.

    Experiment 2: Eating less. Started this about a month ago. I found that stopping before I even feel satisfied, I become satisfied a few minutes after I stop eating. I get hungry more often (I would sometimes skip breakfast or lunch before but now I never do). Overall I think I eat less, at least I look leaner.

    Experiment 3: Moar carbs. I have started eating more fruits and tubers in the last two weeks. Not seeing any negatives, but I think my skin looks better. Almost glow-y? It might be in my head.

    Experiment 4: Three weeks ago started making an effort to sprint once a week. Overdue for mine this week. I like it now though; first time I tried sprinting I hated it and was like "Yup, never doing that again". Now I think I'll keep it up though because I actually found myself feeling really energized in the days that came after.

    Had a berries and spinach smoothie with an egg dropped in for breakfast, then some salmon nigiri and a fruit salad for lunch (I was out and had limited choices). It was delicious but I was starving a few hours later, I never usually snack but I ate a handful of pork rinds that my friend had that were not 100% paleo and a cube of old cheddar. Dinner was awesome paleo goodness again; hamburger bowl.

      Berries, spinach and egg are the base for a great smoothie! Do you do frozen spinach and berries? I have been using frozen and it's like dessert! Yum! I also do add ins like gelatin, co, coconut flakes, raw cacao, frozen plantain, water kefir, a little coffee.....usually a mix of a few of these, whatever I have on hand
      Yum!
      Your salmon lunch sounds good. Note to self: MOAR salmon

        The berries I use are wild frozen berries, it was a delicious smoothie actually. I have been trying out eating more fruit lately and I just love smoothies. This and 2 slices pineapple + coconut flakes and spinach/kale are my favorites :-) I don't mind salmon of course, I love it! I just thought fruit salad + fruit for breakfast may have been on the a little much side of trying to include more fruit, throw some rice into the mix and I had a rather low protein day even with the egg and fish haha!

          Is this paleo? Probably not- especially for its size. Booze is probably my biggest vice. That and stress

            My god I feel like I just lost some weight. Did a final presentation and the teacher loved it. Ate some good stuff today, Berry spinach smoothie, shrimp, salad, hamburger, snacked on a little bit of semi processed meat, didn't have weird things, just processed though. Overall- awesome day.

              I don't know if that cider is primal/paleo but it's delicious! I have a bottle if it every couple weeks. Also, I don't see why it wouldn't be - I'm pretty sure the main ingredient is apples and there aren't many other things on the label.

                I totally love the stuff too; I used to drink a beer every couple of weeks or so but I decided it was time to give that up a little while ago (R.I.P. Guinness) and this has become my favorite. I tried several kinds, this one is the best one hands down. Its half as sweet as the others and tastes more like a beer than a soda. I hate it when ciders taste like apple Fanta. I thought Mark said only red wine was primal? I cant remember because I was always like- yup really don't care, not giving up my booze- until recently.

                  I sampled a bunch too and this was also my favorite - I agree, so many of the others are way too sweet. Thistly Cross is also pretty good for the crispness, but it's sweeter than Samuel smith's. I tried angry orchard green apple cider somewhere a month or two ago, and it wasn't bad either.

                  Yeah, I kind of glossed over whatever Mark said about booze, even though I'm sure he's right about it. I knew I needed to cut back in general, so I figure it's in my 20% and as long as I don't drink it too often it's not a big deal. Plus I figured at least apple cider is gluten free? Also I like white wine better than red even though it's pretty much devoid of nutritional value, so I don't really want to give it up either.

                    Yeah, at least theres that; thats why I switched :-) I do love red wine too though...love it probably too much haha.


                    Ate a nice big lamb chop for BF w/ huge pile of spinach. Cooked it in "primal fat" a 50/50 grass fed ghee coconut oil blend that I bought cause it was cheap. I like it, I'll probably continue to buy it. Went out last night with an old friend, ate a couple rolls of sushi, one tuna, one salmon. The salmon roll had generous chunks in it and I was a happy grokette. Been eating more carbs still and happily no weight gain yet :-)

                        Fiancé made meatza for dinner last night had it with a BAS; it was pretty awesome. My skin has been really clear and healthy looking lately, its definitely not in my head. Love it.

                          Sauteed Calamari and onions for breakfast, lamb and salad for lunch fruit salad snack and pork and cabbage for dinner. Thats whats on the menu for today :-)

                          So close to finishing the semester I can almost taste it. Went for a nice long walk in the forest this last weekend, it felt like such a treat. Cant wait until I have time for that sort of thing every day this summer. Actually going to be living on waterfront, and I bought a paddle board. Cant wait.

                            Cut back on fruits again. After that fruit salad a few days ago (it was a reasonably portion too) I felt like it was making me carb-cravey a little, the way I used to be before paleo. Maybe moderate carb just isn't for me? What was really scary is the next day after I decided to cut back, I couldn't stop thinking about it, t sucked. Just saw Wolf and Sisson's talk during paleo fx and Wolf mentioned he has tried to incorporate carbs more but it just doesn't work for him, even though he sees other paleo peeps thriving on more potatoes or fruit.

                              Semester is officially over! Watched my fiance get his masters yesterday :-) Been a little unhealthy lately, diet is fine but not enough sleep, lost of stress, no workout, for the last week or two...I think my last workout was when I started this journal! I'll be glad to have all that stuff back now that all the final bull is done with. Heading up the coast in just one day yay! Finally I can relax.
