Still in the saddle, 4 years now
It's been over a ... well almost 2 years since I last posted here.
I'm doing well on Primal, still using both the Primal food and exercise pyramids. Weight still fluctuates around the 150lb mark. I've found out in the last year that I need to take care of my joint connective tissue better. I tore my MCL in August 2015 at a karate tournament, and after 4 months it's about 95%. Still some flexibility and pain issues but it's gotten fairly stable.
I'm enjoying cooking as usual, brewing more chicken and beef broth than before. Last night I fried some coconut-crusted whitefish in bacon grease, topped with a honey-orange sauce of my own conception and creation. Yum! My usual breakfast is at noon, with poached eggs on a tablespoon of coconut oil, lots of salt and some fresh pepper. Yes, I practice a reduced eating window. I find that mornings are easy-peasy that way and it reduces the total calories per day. I still struggle getting what I think is enough vegetable matter into my diet.
I'm doing a weekly weightlifting group session at the gym along with 3 or 4 karate workouts per week, plus dog-related activity and yard/house work. Also I have a bad habit :) of working on cars which keeps me doing unusual movements in the garage, including full Grok-squats, rolling on the floor and some LHT.
With a tax refund this winter, I'm hoping to enroll in and graduate from the [URL="https://www.primalblueprint.com/get-certified"]Primal Blueprint Expert Certification[/URL] curriculum. Perhaps my fourth career could be as a Primal counselor and/or trainer?
Last item this post: sometime in 2016 I'd like to run a Tough Mudder or Spartan race. Anybody with me?
I hope you all have a very merry Christmas season!
