Primal Journal: LP
I'm a long time lurker of this website and the forums. I usually check in a couple of times a day just to see what everyone is talking bout, or to find answers to questions I might have. I've tried everything from high carb, low fat…to strict paleo…to ketogenic…to slim fast…to 5:2….to you name it! I've decided that I need to have a healthier take on life and food as nourishment. This has lead me to begin my primal journey once and for all!
I am not going to self diagnose myself, but I have tendencies that fall in line with BED (binge eating disorder). I always end up eating junk that's awful for me…my husband eats healthy and junky so there's always some sort of crap in the house that he refuses to live without. I've never made myself vomit as a way of purging afterward, but I have been known to notoriously "fast" after eating way past a point of discomfort. I'm a believer in fasting… WHEN done in the RIGHT way…with a HEALTHY mindset. I know I have these issues and I intend to conquer them.
1.) To STOP counting calories
2.) To move daily
3.) To eat for health and not for momentary satisfactions.
4.) To tone up for my Hawaii vacation in May
Current exercise routines:
Right now I am doing Turbofire. I know a lot of people will argue that this isn't exactly "primal" …BUT it is something I truly enjoy doing. I'm too busy right now with work, school, and being a wife…No time for going to the gym except for maybe on weekends. When I get tired of TF I might try another beach body workout...
