Primal Journal (Ch1katita)
Nice to be a part of this community...here's how i started; My partner has been a Grok since before we met and at first it all sounded very complex. I tried it for a while, but because of my lack of understanding, gave up very quickly. He has since pointed me in this direction and I decided it was probably best to read the website thoroughly before starting. Well having so much to it, it is going to be impossible so, feeling like I've read enough...... I am ready to Grok (rock...get it?!). :D
I have to say this has got to be the best introduction to the ancestral way...it's fun light-hearted and has just enough science in there to understand it. I used to be addicted to solitaire and bejewelled (sad I know and not good for the brain I'm sure!), but now I can't stay away from this website, so much to read up on and understand and always new things going on! I've even got my mum involved!
Anyway, less waffle...
Day 1 (pre PB shop so not fully over the bad stuff as yet)
Breakfast- banana, blueberries and 2 dessert spoons of pro biotic coconut yoghurt
Lunch - broccoli and Stilton soup - tesco carton
Snack - 6 rice cakes
Dinner - turkey, spinach, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower with some peri peri chip sprinkle
Drinks - 1 tea with milk, 3green teas, 1 moroccan tea, 1 sleepy tea and 2 glasses water
Exercise -walk to work and back 25 minutes approx (need to remember to time this at some point)
Sleep last night - approx 9 hours
Weight - 78.4kgs / uk clothes size 16 (I was going to say a 14, but having asked my partner to take a few starting photos so I can track progress, I realised I don't fit the clothes that I'm wearing).
Pictures attached are of me now. Watch this space.....
Goal - 65kgs / uk clothes size 10 ish
Day 2 - chocolate making!
Not a good day to be on a diet...went on a chocolate making course! Though the man did say good, dark chocolate is better for you than a salad in the amount of nutrients it contains. Green and Blacks a good chocolate for this and anything above 64%, the darker the better!
Sleep last night - approx 8 hours.
Woke up to alarm at 7am (went to watch a friends daughter BMX!)
Breakfast - banana, blueberries and coconut yog
picked at - 4 raisins, 5 small prawn cocktail crisps (one of my issue is not being able to say no when offered, though i am getting better slowly.)
felt good until 11.30am ish.
Lunch - bbq Peri Peri chicken, small portion of cous cous, salad, yog and mint dressing - felt better after being out in the fresh air and having eaten.
Chocolate making - 3marshmallows, choc fountain, 10 choc truffles (64% choc) - not as bad as I anticipated!
Dinner- Wisconsin pot roast, green beans, peppers and courgettes, trifle (oops!)
Drinks - strong late, 4g+ts, small glass white wine, 1l water
Exercise - took 4 flights of stairs instead of escalator (its a start!), walked around Manchester approx 40 mins
