Grokerella's Primal Journal
[FONT=Century Gothic]Time to start this journey, been living a SAD life for too long. About 12 years ago I started gaining weight and have made a progression to the point where I'm at now. After a lot of soul searching I've figured out a lot of what contributed to me getting to this place. But that's all in the past!
Just a quick blip about me: I'm a single mom of 2 amazing boys, swear frequently and with a ferver, full time student (social work and political science), have 2 super cutey cute pups, and am currently living in southern Colorado (although that will change after I finish my undergraduate degrees...)
I want to use this journal to help me stay accountable, get support, track progress AND set backs. Some of my immediate goals are to continue with Primal/Paleo going forward, not let (inevitable) setbacks derail me completely, and finally stop being controlled by food.
I'm using [URL="http://plantoeat.com/recipes"]Plan to Eat[/URL] to help me plan meals and create the oh-so-important shopping lists (as opposed to just wandering around stores and grabbing based on cravings and whims. I'm using MyPlate to input food to see where I am at with fats, proteins, and carbs.
Sooo... on to today :p
B: 3 slices of bacon, 3 yummy yolkey eggs fried in the grease
S: slightly over charred kale chips, still yummy and salty (kid and dog approved lol)
lunch is going to be a salad with a homemade orange poppy seed dressing and baked chicken strips. For dinner I'm planning on proscutto wrapped chicken and a heaping pile of chardy goodness!
WOD: walked a little over a mile and a half (been walking regularly for a couple of weeks now. my goal is to get up to walking 4 miles comfortably then start couch25k program with the eventual goal of becoming a runner doing a few miles a few times a week. I've accepted the fact that I'll start out looking like a lumbering ox who got left behind by her fellow oxen during a stampede lol thankfully there aren't many mountain lions around)
I weighed yesterday, 251.something that I forgot, goal weight of around 145-160. Yes that much of a variance lol I'll let my body see where it wants to be. Just getting under 200 will be the best thing since sliced bacon.
