    Primal Journal ~ I Am Awesome!!

    Primal Fuel
    Hi everyone,

    I'm a 46 yo male. Over the last 6 months I have lost 30 lbs using portion control. Now I'm ready to get into the Primal Lifestyle and lose some more weight. Today, Friday March 25, 2011 I weigh 235 lbs. My goal is to loose body fat and gain and build muscle.

    Here's to Going Primal!

    I Am Awesome!!

    Yeessss! Grok on!
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    Several Days Later...

    Well I have been attempting to stay away from carbs, but I find that I use them as a crutch when I get stresses, anxious, depressed. I have lived with anxiety and depression for most of my adult life and I look forward to a time when I am much more happy and less stressed. I figure the way to do this is through better eating and excercise.

    So today I had the following for breakfast:
    Scrambled eggs and veggies
    2 whole eggs
    small handfull of mushrooms
    a small handfull of sliced black olives
    some diced sweet onions
    butter to sautee

    2 cups of decafe coffee with 2% milk and sugar

    Lunch I had 2 Taco Bell soft Taco supremes... Had a rough morning and wanted something to kick me in gear. 1 Yeungling beer.

    Snack.. Starbucks Java Chip Frapacino. (I know, I know its not good) but at least Im being truthful about what Im eating.

    Dinner: 4 tostones... fried green plaintains...

    Drank 72 oz of water

    That's it... working on avoiding cravings after 7PM so I dont eat and gain more weight.

    You are awesome! .. and lose only has one O.

    Here's hoping you get to write Lose a lot, hence the need to spell it correctly. Just ignore me if you want, I'm ok with that!

    Loose is good if you're talking about your pants.

    Ok. Today is April 26. One month ago I was at 235. Today I'm at 224. I did make it to 220 but have climbed a little bit. So that is 11 to 15 pounds in one month. Not bad....

    Now to find something else for breakfast. I've been eating scrambled eggs each morning and Im starting to get tired of it.

    Ideas for breakfast?

    Thanks guys!
