    tfarny's new journal

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    OK, so I've decided to double down on the whole journaling thing, I'm going to make a push to get ridiculously healthy by my 40th B-day. My previous journal is buried way down there somewhere, I'd rather make a fresh start.

    Age: 39.5
    Gender: Male
    Height: 6'1" 185 cm
    Weight 199 lb, 90.5 kilos, whatever-stone, 32" jeans. Started out 225 and a very tight 36" jean.
    Time Paleo-ish: 15 months. So my 40th birthday, October 6, will be just over 1.5 years primal, a good amount of time to truly see progress.
    Main issues resolved: IBS, sour stomach, migraines, nasty mood, being fat and out of shape, and etc.
    Main issues yet to resolve: Deadlift 315 for reps, 6 minute mile, muscle up, don't yet need a belt for 32" Gap jeans. In other words, I'm pretty darn healthy for an old guy with a sedentary job who couldn't do 10 pushups when he started, but I'm not PB cover model material just yet.

    Particular Paleo approach: moderate carb, focusing on local and natural stuff. I don't sweat the occasional breaded calamari or microbrew. I stay the hell away from bread, pasta, and added sugar though. Dairy is fine but milk is to be avoided unless I'm trying to gain weight. I'll eat rice and potatoes daily in moderation.

    OK, so that's me before. I'll spare you all the shirtless version.

    Today food:
    bfast greek yogurt + a few pecans, a spoon of honey, and a banana, all mixed together, and a piece of fritatta (about 2.5 eggs worth).
    lunch more frittata, small piece of wild salmon, some leftover green beans. Hunk of goat cheese.
    snack: (so sue me, I was hungry today) more greek yogurt + honey.
    dinner roasted root veg in coconut oil (sweet potato + carrot + onion), 8 0z or so of meatshare pork sausage, onions + more greeen beans. Hunk of cheese.

    Tomorrow will be basically the same food but just two meals, and a couple glasses of wine, no need to post every single day.

    WOD: nothing, just a walk about 45 minutes.

    WOD: 72 front squats @ 100 lb, 60 pushups, 36 chins for time. So, 6 rounds of 12/10/6. Finish with rings tuck moves.
    I should have gone sprinting yesterday, it's supposed to rain the next few days. Drat.

    Food: bfast greek yogurt, honey + a banana, lunch more sausage and root veg, dinner probably wild salmon with same root veg and hopefully something green, maybe just a nuked pack of frozen kale with lard and salt.
    Also, every day I drink two cups of very strong coffee with heavy cream in the morning, and often a cappucino with whole milk in the afternoon. See, I'm not into the extreme versions of this stuff. Tea is occasional and either herbal or black and straight - no sugar.

    Thanks for the encouragement everyone - though even if you weren't impressed I would still be doing this.
    Food: greek yogurt / blueberries, the last sausage + carrots + kale (leftovers) + goat cheese. Dinner is going to be a cheat, I'm going out. Possibly a burger and fries, maybe even a couple of (gasp) beers.
    WOD: hill sprints if it stops raining for good, 100 burpees for time if it doesnt. 30 chins no matter what.
