So, that was my goal post... this is my whiny "where I'm at now" post.
Currently, as of this morning, I weigh 219.8 lbs. The other day I was at 220.something. This is so very close to my pre-primal weight from 3 years ago that it's not even funny. For those new to my world, I started Primal in March 2012.
Ailments I need to eliminate:
achey, stiff feet and ankles
low back pain
poor sleep quality
poor digestive health
tendonitis/soreness in my elbows
constant need to clear my throat
ears that crackle when I swallow/hear loud sounds
I'm so tired of being bloated and tired. That's my biggest gripe. Feeling so incredibly fat and tired all the time. I feel and look 8 months pregnant. It's an incredibly annoying feeling.
So what do I plan to do about it? I plan to kick off 2015 with a Whole30. I start Monday. This weekend will be used to prep for the first week and to rid the house of the junk that will tempt me (i.e. I'm going to eat it all). I am quite excited about venturing back into the paleo world. I've been off entirely too long and it really shows.
Customarily, I'd eat bacon and boiled eggs for breakfast everyday, but I've switched jobs and am not working in a cubie farm... not sure bacon will be wise. Maybe it'll be ok? I suspect I'll get trampled between my break room and my desk when they smell it. mmmmm.... bacon.
For the rest of the day, I plan. My thoughts on fitness focus around strengthening right now. I want to be able to run again, but I think I need to focus on restrengthening what was once strong. So I think a few weeks of progressive lifting is in order. I know what functional movements I want to work on, but I don't know what weights to start with. I know what my maxes were from before... do I start with a percentage of that? Maybe that's a question for the MFP world.
Anyway - welcome to my new journal. I hope you'll stick around for a while.
