    Primal Journal (Twinwolf)

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Day 6 - yeah, I know...supposed to start on day one.. Rules, rules.... So, like I was saying Day 6:

    Started to wake up out of my slumber at 5:45am. Sun was peeking through the window, with blinds now being left open. Shut the alarm off 1 minute before it started it's infernal noise at 6:15am. Yay me!

    Breakfast: 4 egg omelet (cage free organic brown eggs), one jalepeno, 5 grape tomatoes, 1 oz of raw mild cheddar cheese, salted butter, and 4 strips of bacon (no nitrites or nitrates added - nature's promise organic).

    Lunch: 5.5ozs pork tenderloin, 24 almonds, 1 cheese stick, 15 baby carrots.

    Dinner: 16oz Prime Rib from Longhorn, 5 stuffed mushrooms (herbs and cheese without breading), 15 stalks of asparagus, mixed green salad (no croutons) with chipotle ranch dressing.

    Water: 128 ozs.


    Long day. Spent most of it walking at work. On feet majority of day. Low intensity.


    I know there is a lot of cheese in my diet still. Not quite sure how much if any I will be cutting out. I will do my best. Looking at a butcher for grass fed beef. Hopefully soon...


    Starting weight on 5/6/2011 was 258lbs. Current weight 253lbs on 5/10/2011.

    Peace.

    16 oz. prime rib, I like your style. As for the cheese, I would say keep an eye on it and not go crazy and you'll be OK. If you hit a snag in you're weight lose then that may be the culprit and you'll know what to do. But you've lost 5 lbs in 4 days, so it's not an issue yet.

    Breakfast today was much the same as the above picture, only with the bacon inside. YUM!

    Just got done eating this delicious beast. 4 eggs, jalepeno, 5 grape tomatoes, 1 oz raw mild cheddar, 4 strips of uncured bacon (Nature's Promise). Jalepeno inside negates the need for hot sauce!

    Worked out, 5 mins treadclimber at 3.5mph - alternated Rotating curls and bench dips then alternated rope cable curls and straight bar tricep extensions.

    Rotating curls 30 lbs x 20, 35 lbs x 15, 35 lbs x 15

    Bench Dips 15, 15, 15

    Rope Cable Curls 100 lbs x 10, 100 lbs x 10, 100 lbs x 10

    Straight bar tri ext. 120 lbs x 10, 120 lbs, 10, 120 lbs x 10


    Now off to work!

    Peace.

    Just got done with my first intermittent fast. Started at 6:00pm Saturday night and didn't have anything but water till 6:00pm tonight. It seemed a lot easier than I thought it would. I didn't feel shaky or anything. Now I will say that I didn't have a high energy day planned so not expending much energy might have made it easier. My first meal breaking the fast was the following:

    3 cups organic spinach
    2 ozs raw mild cheddar cheese
    12 organic grape tomatoes
    1 jalepeno pepper fresh chopped
    4 tbsp "cowgirl ranch" dressing
    10 baby carrots chopped
    6 slices of uncured bacon


    Drank over 20 glasses of water throughout the day so I was plenty hydrated. I normally drink as many as 18 glasses each day anyway, so this was not a huge departure from normal.

    Hope I did this right!

    So, big steak last night with wine. One glass and oh how a dry red wine with a massive hunk of red meat cooked medium rare is awesome!! I love it! Took my wife out for her birthday. We had a pretty good time.


    Tonight my parents took us both out for dinner since our birthdays are only 7 days apart. We went to Cracker Barrel, more a matter of convenience than desire to go there, but it was good. I had 3 eggs, 2 sausage patties, 3 strips of bacon, and a house salad with buttermilk ranch dressing. Also finished the last 3 ounces of my wife's sirloin since she wasn't going to finish it. Very happy that she likes meat rare as it was cooked just right.

    Yesterday morning I weighed 249.8 which is 1.8 lbs down from last Friday!!! Today 248.8! Today would have been one week. Very happy with the progress! I started at 258 lbs fourteen days ago. I am down almost 10 lbs!!! Also under 250 lbs for the first time in over 10 years!! Very excited!

    I'm glad primal is going well for you!
    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.
