    Primal Journal (Tangentrider)

    Primal Fuel
    I'll put more detail later, but for now I just need to get something up here and join the accountability dialogue. Here's the general stuff that I'm doing:

    Food: coconut milk with whey, cocoa, and ginger for breakfast; grass fed meat and onions for lunch; dinner changes

    Supplements: multi, fish oil, potassium, magnesium, D-3, B-complex

    Movement: weekday 20 minute walks, Saturday 90 minute walk, tabata once or twice a week (http://www.whointheworldarewe.com/20...ngth-training/)

    Issues: lung crud, bad joints, blood lipids, minor repeating face rash

    Successes: scale weight is stable (this is mixed), muscle is increasing (I have biceps!!)

    I'll put up an actual daily-esque journal later.
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.
