    Today was a long day at work. 5:30am-4:30pm... Had to get up at 4:15am. Let's say that I was less than functional for a while. I don't do well on 6 hours of sleep lately. Seems like I need closer to 8 hours or I get that blah feeling!

    Anyway, todays menu looked a little like this:

    Meal 1 - 3 oz chicken tenderloin and a Frigo mozzarella cheese stick

    Meal 2 - pistachios, almonds - 1 serving each

    Meal 3 - salad, including grape tomatoes, lettuce, parm cheese, bacon crumbles, turkey (1oz), and 2 hard boiled eggs.

    Meal 4 - 1/2 a rotisserie chicken and 1 cup of cole slaw

    10 glasses of water at this time. More to be consumed I'm sure!


    Other than walking a good distance, not much other exercise.

    Did a little bit of fasting from 10:30pm last night till 6:30pm today. Burned a bunch doing yard work today. Had a good size piece of steak and some salad for dinner tonight. Was a really good day! Also bought my wife and I some Vibrams. We had some on order, but it's been a half a month or more and they still haven't even shipped. So I cancelled the order tonight and bought some at Eastern Mountain Sporting Goods.

    I work all weekend, so fun.. ;-(

    Yesterday was a messy day for me. Food choices were good till I went to poker party and ate pepperoni(crap store brand) and cheeses. Then to compound the fact that I was sliding down the slippery slope, I drank. 2 captain Morgans and soda water, 1 bottle of red wine, and a glass of a second one. Probably 40 ounces of wine. Needless to say, today sucked. Hangover for hours. Guess what helped? Food, burger, some cheese, (not a good choice, but mayo), ribs and chicken!! Felt much better instantly.

    Was late for work for the first time in years.. Not so good. Boss wasn't unkind abut it, he actually laughed at me and got his jabs in throughout the day.

    So, after 21 days in I weigh 246.4 pounds. This is a drop in weight of 12.6 pounds! Very excited! I've done two fasts so far. Both were great days. I'm slowly moving towards not logging my food. That is next. After almost 6 months of logging every meal, daily water intake, and all forms of exercise - I'm burnt out!

    On Tuesday I'm going to my doctors - without being violently ill for once to have a complete physical. Having them run a full blood panel so I can see the difference from last fall when I had my weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol checked. I'm pretty stoked about going, not usually the case. I hate doctors offices and hospitals since I spent so much time in them as a child. Rrr!

    Anywho, that's been my day! Night!

    Today was a busy day at work. I stayed 100% today! Only ate 900-1000 cals.. Not very hungry.. Tomorrow is another busy day and I get to work out after work! Fun, fun!

    Well, guess it's been long enough since I last posted. Memorial Day Weekend is gone and past... Work should start slowing down and the "dog days" of summer are right around the corner. Time to get back to the grind. Was originally going to start P90X on June 1st, but I've decided that as long as I keep losing weight doing what I'm doing, then I'm not going to change it up yet.

    Current workouts are Mondays and Wednesdays - 10-15 mins of cardio and 30-50 minutes of strength training. On days I feel like doing more, I do more. On off gym days, I either play basketball or do other things like walk slowly for long periods of time. This last weekend we spent over two hours of straight walking a a WWII reenactment. It was a blast. Got a good bit of sun and exercise.

    Today I only ate 2 times. Once first thing in the morning and then again after 6pm tonight. Getting used to less food less frequently. I've had two 24 hour fasts so far and intermittently fast when I feel moved to do so...

    So, last Friday 6/3 was 28 days Primal. Or at least somewhere between 85-95% primal. I do have the occasional lapse and still have a diet soda. Not every day, but I've probably had one every week so far. Looking to quit that totally.. I am trying to replace it with coffee (black) and tea (unsweetened) when I get tired of drinking water. I guess that most times that I have a soda it is due to either deciding to drink, or going somewhere like a movie theatre and wanting something other than a bottle of water. I will work on this..

    Back to Friday 6/3 - 28 days and I am at 244.2 lbs. I have now lost roughly 14 lbs in 28 days. I started at 315 lbs on 1/1/11 and lost 57 lbs before going Primal. I am now 71 lbs down since the beginning of the year. Very happy, but not done. I haven't been this light in over 11 years.. I can't wait to hit 215 lbs because I haven't been that light since 1998. Goal is 205 lbs at the moment with a possibility of going as low as 185-195 lbs. I haven't been that light since 1994!!

    Well, time to browse some forums... Peace...

    Had a hell of a workout tonight. See below:

    6/8 - treadmill - 15 mins, 135 avg HR, 148 cals

    Strength Training - 50 mins

    DB Bench Press - 35lb x 10 reps, 40lb x 12 reps (w/help last 2)

    DB Incline Press - 35lb x 12 reps, 25lb x 15 reps

    Decline Cable B-Press - 11(level?) x 12 reps, 9 x 20 reps

    Assisted Dips - 225lb x 15, 225lb x 15

    Tri-kickbacks - 15lb x 12 reps (both sides), 20lb x 12 reps (both sides)

    Rope Cable Ext - 50lb x 12 reps, 40lb x 16 reps, 30lb x 15 reps

    Torso Rotate - 80lb x 15 reps (both sides), 90lb x 15 reps (both sides)

    AB Crunch - 28lb x 10 reps (left,center,and right)

    AB Pulldown - 120lb x 15 reps, 130lb x 15 reps, 130lb x 15 reps


    While reading PrimaLeaf's thread tonight, I came to the determination that I won't be weighing myself for the next 30 days. 7/3/11 will be the next tine I weigh. And if I'm still moving the scale in 30 days then I will make it another 30 after that. Also I decided to do everything in my power to be as close to 100% PB as possible. No momentary lapses with diet soda, no alcohol, and paying special attention to make sure I'm getting my good fats in every day. On top of that I'm going to stop watching TV or playing video games within 2-3 hours of bed to make sure I'm getting adequate quality sleep.


    If you happen to read this blog, feel free to send some encouragement this way! Every bit helps! Thank you.

    Good job of getting back on track after slip-ups. Those are bound to happen to most of us. No big deal if you are getting more and more on track overall.

    Played basketball for just over an hour last night in my VFFs. Wound up with blisters. Had a lot of fun, the shoes were very comfy, but I can't deal with quarter sized blisters on both big toes every time I play ball. Also have one the size of three quarters on the ball of my left foot. Gonna make today at work fun.

    Wondering if I should get the 5 finger socks for the Vibrams? Some have suggested that it would help. Im not sure.. Might have to just suck it up.. Suggestions?


    Breakfast today was 6 slices of uncured organic bacon and three scrambled eggs seasoned to my liking. Great start to the day!
