    I've been eating paleo since January 2009 but it's an on/off kind of thing. I enjoy the benefits it clearly brings and the quality it adds to my life but I find it hard to keep it straight in company. I feel I would have to justify my eating habits. But that's it: from now on I do what feels good for myself. Here are my goals:

    - stick to the primal eating plan except for two meals a week or 1h before/after a strenous exercise.

    - incorporate at least 2 strength sessions a week.

    - increase leg strength by 10kg at 20 reps.

    - get an average of 8h of sleep per day.

    - drop 2kg of weight.

    - avoid stress but advance.

    Week 1 in Summary:

    Stuck to the plan.

    Used my two exceptions (a piece of Engadiner Nusstorte on Wednesday and chocolate on Sunday).

    Sleep: averaged barely below target at 7.9h - I especially have trouble "shutting down" early enough during weeknights.

    Strenght training: 2 that week.

    Weight on target if I stick to the two exceptions max.

    You're doing great Swiss-Chick! But I'm not sure Orange Juice is primal, unless that counts as your 20%.
