    Day 0
    Plan to begin my journey to a "life of abundance" tomorrow. I made one last pizza for football this afternoon. I will find another use for my pizza stone. Not necessarily a priority in the first 21 days but a challenge for the future. Looking forward beginning again.

    Day 1
    Okay very cool, I figured part of Forum posting out. Found my post and it is day 1. Happy to be here and on the right path. Life is a journey and I will not take myself, my ideals or my health for granted.
    I have been reading some pertinent articles on this site. Carbs and depression, Success stories that express the gain of more energy and vitality, weight loss, sense of well being and I can identify with all of them.
    Yesterday was a total carb overload for me in a sort of send off to say so long to fatigue and general lack of zest for life. What an eye opener this morning. I didn't want to get out of bed, had a horrible headache and felt depressed.
    Day 1
    -Starting with a protein shake.
    -Lunch, Roast beef with butter on top, lettuce topped w/ veggies, a little egg and feta and olive oil,( I was at a luncheon and passed on sweet treats and fresh baked rolls, I did try a little fresh pineapple w/balsamic vinegar reduction)
    -Supper, blueberries w/a little cream, bacon and eggs, and a couple spoonfuls of homemade basil pesto

    Workout- shoveling at a good pace for 1/2 hour

    Just remember it takes a little time to feel the effects of going primal. After about day 3 I finally realized that going primal was the only way I ever wanted to live again. It gets better

    Welcome! Sounds like a rough start to the day, and there will be others, but you are on to something wonderful and very good for you.

    Day 2
    Breakfast, Protien shake
    Lunch, Chef Salad w/ Blue Cheese
    Chipper
    Called my house mate and asked him to hide Chippers, chocolate covered potato chips, Christmas gift from my mom. I'm hoping by the end of the 21 days I'll get rid of them. I'd call that a semi-purge.
    Supper, Chicken stir fry, rice cake with butter
    85% cacao small piece

    20 min. on glider
    20 chair assisted pull ups
    1min 45 sec and 1 min straight arm plank, no side plank
    20 wall pushups tried regular, did one
    23 pole assisted squats, tried regular, knee killed me switched to pole

    I am going to be working on body weight lifting 3 times per week
    Goal 1) be able to do 20 regular pull ups by the end of the year! I have never been able to do one! 2) be able to do 20 pushups by the end of the year!

    I walk when I am able, I am using a glider indoors right now due to knee issues.

    Day 3
    Protien shake for breakfast
    Lunch, Eggs and bacon

    Used custard recipe from MDA and made a variation with cocoa powder, chocolate pudding
    Supper, Primal creamy chicken noodle soup, pudding, blueberries with a dollop of ice cream

    I have lived in the middle of nowhere in the past and learned to do a lot of cooking from scratch which helps, I can make most anything and vary it so it's primal, but I'd like to avoid the replacement and substitution trap, it gets me into trouble. I need to be content with out. Years ago I was gluten free and did not eat any grains, I was okay not eating bread, cakes etc., Then I started ordering gluten free flours and such online and making my own breads and I think it opened a gate that eventually lead back to eating unhealthy carbs. Better to do without opening the gate again. When I was primal for a while I remember trying some bread and it felt like a glutenous globulous mass in my gut. That feeling didn't last forever and I was back eating unhealthy carbs again. So I'm going to be more serious about "little cheats" so I don't cheat myself out of an abundant healthy life.

    I completely agree with this. It is a slippery slope! There are so many great foods out there, no need to brings these foods into our lives.
