    8:39 AM - Started going Primal today.

    Weight - 257

    I have been eating like crap the past 5 days. Lately I have been weighing 250-252 so first 5 pounds will be a wash from my perspective. I also expect to gain weight in muscle. Starting CrossFit.

    Measurements -
    Chest 48"
    Waist 43"
    Hips 45"
    Bicep (L) 16 1/4" (R) 16"
    Calf (L+R) 18 3/4"

    B - 2.5 Egg Omelet with sauteed spinach and mushrooms. (Shared with wife, 4 eggs total), slice of cheddar cheese on top,
    about 6 ounces of thin, lean grilling steak, 1/4 avocado, 2 small cups of coffee with half and half

    Small amount of sunflower seeds and mixed nuts (no peanuts), handful at best

    L - Protein salad from Freshii. A bunch of spinach, a little bit of green apple, about a half can of white albacore tuna, a few ounces of their balsamic vinaigrette.

    small peperoni stick, another handful of nuts, hard boiled egg

    D - 2 Sausages from Sausage King, 16oz. very lean pork chop, sauteed zucchini, small side salad

    Felt a little light headed and weak from 3-6pm

    According to fitday.com I ate around 3500 calories. Too much meat I think. I will tone it down. Half my calories were in dinner alone. The good news is, my carbohydrates were at 46 grams. Fat and Protein were around 240 grams each.

    Probably because of my meat frenzy last night, when I woke up this morning I was not hungry. Probably a good thing considering my 3500 calories from yesterday.

    B - 1 hard-boiled egg, small handful of sunflower seeds, 1oz of smoked salmon, half of an apple, 2 cups coffee with half and half. 1/2 scoop of NanoVapor (6grams carbohydrates)

    L - Leftover lean pork, 1 Sausage king sausage, leftover zucchini.

    Small handfuls of nuts here and there, and sunflower seeds

    D - Ritz half pound jerk chicken, callaloo, so when I got home had 1 more sausage king sausage, rest of pork, strawberries, blueberries, with a few ounces of half and half, some nuts, and a small pepperoni stick

    Felt a little lightheaded, weak, or just funny a few times today, but this was only before I ate.

    All around, a better day nutritionally than yesterday. 1000 less calories.

    2600 calories, 168 grams Fat, 72 grams carbohydrates, 209 grams protein....a little higher than what I wanted on carbs, but it was worth it

    First Crossfit workout

    Various warm-up exercises

    9 x 5 squats increasing weight to 5 rep max.....stopped at set 8 at 305 pounds, didn't want to injure/overstress my legs since they were getting very tired and near cramping, and still had a workout to do

    12 x 50 meter sprints. Pulled hamstring last time I did sprints, so I took it easier than a full on sprint 1:3 work/rest

    3 x 10 hamstring body raises. I am not sure what these are called

    Definitely a little thinner in the fatter areas. Doing CrossFit a lot. Probably gaining some muscle mass. At least I hope so.
