    For the most part the first week of Primal eating has not been too tough. I have noticed, however, that i am feeling a bit sore or achey, almost like I am getting sick. I am not sure if it is the change in diet or something else. I have been pretty faithful to the eating and have been on my workouts consistantly.

    I don't know if it is because it is summer and they taste good or because of a need for more carbs but I have been craving fruit. I am going to keep doing what I am doing for another week or so and see if it works itself out.

    I am planning a trip to go crabbing this week (Pretty Primal) and want to try the new crabcakes Mark wrote about.



    B:Chicken and cooked veggies, I can't remember what but I pulled them out of a bag I'd cooked in Olive oil earlier in the week.

    L:Pork loin , leftover green bean salad and a peach

    S: five eggs with Salsa and apple sauce

    D: TBD


    “Fight Gone Bad!”

    Three rounds of:

    Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)

    Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)

    Box Jump, 20? box (Reps)

    Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)

    Row (Calories)

    In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.

    I got my book yesterday and am reading through.

    I didn't log my meals yesterday so I will try to get them back on track today. I'm looking forward to my first mini-adventure race (kayaking, mountain biking and running) this weekend. We also are having some friends over for a primal potluck on Friday for a pre-race dinner. My wife, who is a ridicullously good cook anyway, is having blast coming up with new primal recipies. So far the menu is as follows: Spare ribs, grilled peach and bacon salad, shrimp ceviche and possibly some primal crab cakes (if my ocean trip works out).

    All the food is local and grown or raised within about 25 miles of us. That is way Grok-like.

    Today's contest was perfect cause we were in the process of bacon and eggs when we read it.

    I'm still having some trouble getting meals organized durng the workweek doe to a wierd schedule. FOr the most part I just snack (primally)through my shift. It works but isn't as good as planning a meal. I will have to work on it.

    Yesterdays meals

    B:Chicken, green beans, zucchinni and tomatos all sauteed together.

    The rest of the day, I snacked on beef, fruit, veggies, almonds and sunflower seeds.

    My evening workout was more wrestling, not hard, just for fun.

    This mornings breakfast was Bacon fried eggs, eggplant, zzucchini and tomatos and berrys. Pretty friggin' good.
