    So you think you can Primal? May 30 day challenge

    A couple of us were talking/typing and decided we wanted to try out a 30 day challenge. Problem was we didn't want to hijack anyone's actual journal so here we go!!! I figure the best thing to do would be to list what goals you have for the next thirty days and then keep the rest of us posted on how you're doing, if you need a kick in the ass or a big cheeleader "YOU CAN DO IT!!! Like this.......

    If you have clicked on this feel free to join us, the more the merrier.

    I'm game. No, really! I am!
    No whole30 cop-out this time. Seriously! For real.

    Ok, I am starting tomorrow since I had the same thought today. Decided I would consider this a cheat day and treat it as such. I now feel...not well.

    Goals:
    1) no coffee
    2)no dairy(no grains is a given, but I will make sure I don't have any), no nuts and no fruit.
    3) no scale.
    4) ditto the less computer time. I don't watch that much tv, but I do waste a ton of time on the computer.
    5)If I walked more, my legs would fall off. So, I'm adding sprints instead. 2x a week
    6) LHT, bodyweight style 3x a week.
    7)PLAY! We got a frisbee, will be put to good use. Going to get a volleyball too, since I love volleyball.
    8) be consistent with my supplements.
    9) No sugar or chocolate. This one is hard for me. The hardest of all I think. I eat way too much chocolate and candy at work.
    10) get enough sleep
    All in all, get back to basics Primal-wise.
    Calm the f**k down.

    I'm upping my commitment to the primalness as well.

    1. Actually sprint a couple times a week
    2. Walk to work regularly
    3. Lift heavy things 3 times per week
    4. Eat more salads
    5. Fast intermittently throughout the week.
    6. Avoid sugars completely (even chocolate)
    7. Avoid beer completely
    8. Limit wine intake to no more than 6 oz/day and not every day.
    9. Limit dairy to HWC and occasional cheese.
    10. Play (not sure what this is going to entail yet)

    I think that's it for now. I already take supplements, sleep soundly, stimulate the brain regularly, and (if it's sunny) I'm outside. My 30 days will probably end on Friday the 27th, due to pre-planned memorial day activities. This would, in fact, make it a 27 day challenge.

    My May Whole 30 goal...

    Try to get my protein to 100 grams/day, eat more vegetables, and keep my calories around 1500 to see if I can get off this plateau I'm on. (Thanks Paleobird)
    Lift heavy things.
    Wait until 10 a.m. each day to eat breakfast - try to eat leaner meats with my eggs instead of bacon (see the 1500 calorie rule!)
    Don't buy any more pork rinds!

    3. NO nuts (I've seriously cut back already)
    4. Limit fruit consumption to berries

    Holy Moly Kookoomonkey,

    Look what you started! Awsome!

    My big challenge this month is to completely eliminate sugar......all of it...and anything that acts like sugar in my body....chips of any kind especially.

    I am also in for some kind of strength training...everyday....even if it is just some pushups. And a weekly sprint. (lexsi340: maybe we can hold each other accountable for that one)

    Wheres Mystic?

    Here we go......

    Sweet I'm in!

    My goals:

    1. One meal a day. 20 hour IF's.
    2. Walk walk walk. I plan on hiking every day if possible.
    3. Get serious about my pull up challenge.
    4. Nurse my skin back to health. Stop picking at it and neglecting it.
    The more I see the less I know for sure.

    I have been such a good little Primal girl (in my eating) and am frustrated not loseing weight and I have ALOT to lose, although I am absolutely sure I am gainig muscle. Now I need a few tweaks as well.

    Goals:
    1. Start sprints once a week, haven't as of yet because of bad knee. I have to find me a hill that I can start these on!
    2. Find a way to start on pull-ups as well, not sure where I can do these either.
    3. Already started on lots of play... but find time for more! Been Hiking, biking, geocaching & fishing!! Sooo excited for warmer weather, rain has been keeping us down around here.
    4. Now this one is really hard for me, for I am addicted... Stay away from scale for the month!! Eeks, someone please come and take away my scale!!
    5. Try, try, try to get more sleep in my life. I fail miserably here because I am a 3rd shift worker and alot of days I only get 5 hours if that!
    6. No nuts!! Nuts... this hasn't been a big problem for me, but cutting them out should be something I should do if I really wamt to see my numbers go down.
    7. Cut down on TV watching time. I have done this recently and cut way back on computer time. Besides, most shows are ending soon for the season!! LOL
    8. No beer.. I have brought my consumption down to a couple on the weekend, Oh man... this will be the hardest!!
    9. When the temps hit 50 in the evening, I will ride my bike to work! That might not happen for awhile, but it is a goal!!
    10. Only fruit consumption will be berries!!
