    Monday August 3 -- Day 1:


    Primal Food Intake Today:

    No appitite today - either a stomach bug or residuals from long run yesterday. Way under on calories.

    B: 2 HB Eggs, 10 baby carrots, 2 fish oil caps, Lifeway kefir, 0.5 cup

    L:McD's Ceasar Salad Grld Chx No dressing

    D: Chicken Breast

    Spinach green salad w/ vinaigrette, dried cherries, almonds

    S3: Homemade plain organic Kefir .33 cup


    2. Exercise routine

    Rest day. Ran 8.25 miles yesterday (Sunday). Trying to decide whether to run Twin Cities Marathon that I signed up for. Run went ok, but it wiped me out. Didn't feel "healthy" tired like after a WOD. Just worn out and creaky. Thinking maybe not on the marathon, given the Primal precepts on the subject.


    3. Other musings - Very excited to be doing the Challenge, particularly b/c my little brother (Desert Tompte) is doing it with me!

    2. Exercise routine


    Baseline - 500m row, 40 squats, 30 sit ups, 20 pushups, 10 pull ups. 5:26 ... 3+ minute improvement on the 1st time I did it back in May!

    After, kettleballs 3 rds 1 minute each (35#): swings (each hand), cleans (each hand), squats. Great day as far as exercise!


    Oh, and since I failed to put stats in the first day's entry ... starting stats:

    205.6, 17.5% BF, 36 lbs bodyfat, 169.6 lean mass.

    Hoping to drop 2% or so BF by the end of 30 days.
