    Ups and downs, my primal life

    Primal Fuel
    I have been primal for about 8 months now. Although I have no problem sticking with it, I do have my occasional chocolate relapse.

    Throughout this journey I discovered that grains and dairy are without any doubt a no go for me. Too much fruit will have me crashing as if I had a pizza.

    I still sleep too little and must start clocking more walking hours. As an avid Cross Fitter I have no problem with complying with sprinting and lifting heavy things.

    This journal will be my way to have a clear idea of what I eat, how I sleep and how I exercise. This is how I will ensure I make myself accountable to myself and to whomever chooses to read this.

    In case you are wondering who I am... the girl on the picture

    Not sure which of those folks in the pic is you but either way, you look great!

    Hope your journaling helps you meet your goals -- and hey it's a great way to show off and be proud of yourself, you deserve it. You're achieving health that few people in this world ever do!

    I love this primal life. I do know however that there are things I need to improve: play more, sleep more and walk more.

    Re walk more:
    Yesterday i decided that I need to walk more, so instead of splitting the dog walking sessions with the husband, I figured I'd add another 30 minutes to their daily regime. True to my decision, I got out of bed this morning and went for a serious walk with my two british Bulldogs. It wasnt a slow walk, but one with a purpose. Bert and Britney (my bullies) have short leggs and they had to do a 30 min jog.

    Yay for me for doing what I said I would. Tonight, I will take them out again, although the dog walk service will have taken them for a serious swiming session. Although my dogs do have a dog walking service, my goal is to walk more, come rain or come shine.

    re play more
    I love cross fit and get to do fun things like handstands... this got me wondering, does Cross Fit qualify as (lift heavy things, sprint and play?) or should I go and find something else to do?


    re sleep more
    With regards to sleeping, I am proud to say that I have managed to sleep at least for 8 hours in the last two days. I wonder: does it matter what time you go to bed? I mean, does sleeping from 22:00 instead of from 24:00 mean that I will be better rested?

    This journal is in its early phases but I must say that I like the fact that I am accountable and hence more aware of the decisions I make.
