Primal Journal ~ Neptunebch
Introduced myself here on Oct 18, 2012.
Began counting calories on June 8, 2012 at 243 lbs.
Lost about 10 lbs. per month eating CW healthy though September 2012.
Started reducing processed carbs October, 2012
Began Primal WOE about mid October, 2012 at about 212 lbs.
Today November 8, 2012 ~ 202 lbs.
For some reason I have been 202 lbs. since October 28th. Eleven days and no weight loss.
Every morning: 15 minutes of stretching and 10 minutes of exercise for arms and 1 min 30 sec plank.
Week 6 of C25K training for Turkey Trot on Nov. 24th. Goal will be 5k in 40 minutes
Last Sunday walked 5.6 miles with interval jogging on the return half. Took me a long time to warm up:)
B: 2 mini crustless quiche, smoothie, decaf coffee, 1/2 cup coconut milk
L: 3 ounces salmon cooked with olive oil, 1 cup chard/leeks cooked in butter/evoo, 1/2 yam with butter
D: ?? don't know yet - probably steak but lunch really filled me up and there won't be too many calories left over since I had the turkey jerky. :(
S: 2 ounce turkey jerky
Water: Enough to sink a boat
Mood: a little on the calm side with a dash of optimism. It is easy to feel optimism when I have so much encouragement from family and coworkers that dish out the compliments daily. That is also a little overwhelming.
Biggest Loser challenge at work: Nov 5 through Feb 25th. Goal lose 30 more lbs....14% of my current body weight. Let's see - since June 8th I have lost 16.9% of my original body weight so 14% will be hard but maybe doable if I can ever get under 200.
Cardiologist said I would be good at 170-180...what does he know. I will be good at 148. Even if I look like Olive Oyl I want to weigh 148.
Easy chicken enchiladas not so easy but after adding more spices and letting the sauce sit in the fridge overnight it was delicious. Note to self. Try to make authentic enchilada sauce from dried peppers.
Not that anyone will make it this far reading my daily activity but if by chance you have, thanks for your interest and if you have any positive thoughts or suggestions I would LOVE to hear them.
46 degrees is perfect for walking - right? right? Why am I such a wimp?
B ~ not until 9:30 a.m. Smoothie ~ 237 calories
S ~ 11:00 - 2 mini crustless quiches ~ 200 calories
Walk - hopefully 20 minutes - 3.5 - 4.0 mph
Scale still stuck on 202 - whatever - probably because I have not been getting in my daily 1 or 2 twenty min walks because I don't like the weather.
46 and partly cloudy - I can do this.
Got a new ginger cookie recipe on FatSecret from Mom2 that I will try. Ground almonds/coconut flour...first try at baking low carb. Hope it doesn't make me crave a "cookie-cookie".
Okay - 46 is PERFECT. Started out bundled up and ended up shedding scarf and gloves. 1.5 miles, 3 flights of stairs in 22 minutes. I calculated the miles previously with my car but since it is a trail it might be longer due to curving in and out.
Another gorgeous Chicagoland day
Started reading Primal Blueprint book night before last.
Shooting for 100 g Protein, 80 g carbs and 100 g fat
B - smoothie, 2 mini crustless quiche
L - rotisserie chicken breast, 1.5 cups Kitchen Sink soup

Weight 200 lbs. Onederland just around the corner :)
Walked 1.5 miles in beautiful 50 degree sunshine today.
