    I have been following a lifestyle inspired by our hunter-gatherer ancestors for close to 10 months now. I feel great and have no plans of turning back.


    This 30-day challenge is a great opportunity to rededicate myself and solidify those lifestyle changes for the long haul and smooth out any current unwanted deviations.


    My goals:


    -Reemphasize lifting heavy things (5lbs of added muscle as a bonus)

    -Increase vegetable intake, decrease fruit and alcohol intake* (overall mindfulness of dietary composition)

    -Find a new career path that will cater to this new lifestyle and interest in human evolution, nutrition, and fitness


    Good luck everyone.

    We'll call today Day 0. Tomorrow I'll record food and exercise notes.

    Rest Day, Walking and moving a giant walnut table


    Meals/Food:


    1- 5eggs w/goat cheese, protein shake

    2- 3Chipotle barbacoa hard shell tacos, side of guacamole

    Musings:


    No big changes today. Tomorrow I plan on getting a gym membership so I can lift some heavier weights for a while. Along with that I'll go shopping and stock up on some vegetables to meet the "more veggies, less fruit" goal. Eventually I will work into the career phase goal.

    Day 2


    Workout:

    Walking and some house work involving cinder blocks


    Meals/Food:


    1- Chunk of cheese

    2- Terrible fake meat at Whole Foods (on accident!), Kale salad (first time eating Kale), Zucchini salad

    3- Trail Mix (mostly almonds and cashews), Some Jerky

    4- Fish Tacos with guacamole, 1 mohito (no sugar)


    Musings:

    Got a gym membership today, so I can lift some heavy weights. Don't plan on spending too much time there, but I want to get in some substantial lifting in the next month or two. Also, not fully satisfied with the dietary intake today, but I did do a better job at getting more vegetables. Tomorrow will be even better. And I get to move some furniture!
