Your location: Alexandria, VA...hit me up if you are a North Virginia hiker!!!
Age (If you want): 26
How Primal are you: I do make primal treats, which some people consider "not paleo enough" but in my opinion it is still better than the alternative
Do you consume dairy: Occasionally, butter is the only regular dairy we consume but we will have some yogurt or cheese from time to time
Do you drink coffee or tea: Mostly tea, lots of green, mate, hibiscus, and chamomile with the occasional cup of coffee
Motivator for switching to Primal: I was holding onto some weight after recovering from an eating disorder, and trying to lose it was pushing me back into disordered eating patterns. Any type of dieting or counting of calories or carbs leads me too obsessing too much. Yet, i couldnt ignore my diet completely because holding on to extra weight annhialated my self esteem. My husband is in the military and they actually suggested a paleo-style eating plan, but I was resistant at first because "whole grains are SO good for you." Anyways, after reading up and doing some research I found it logical and dove in head first and got the body of a fitness model(seriously...that confidence problem is gone!!). On top of the body I wanted I gained strength and energy and happiness
Favorite exercise: Right now it is deadlifts. I weigh 135 and deadlifted 185 yesterday very easily and will be lifting over 200 very soon[insert applause]. I am actually a lover of the powerclean-overhead press combo since it is such a dynamic lift I really get to sweating. I still hate squats though.
Favorite Primal food: Well, read my last post on my journal, I made this chocolate think that is like a fudgey-truffle-melt in your mouth candy bar that is better than sex. Also, I am a huge seafood person.
Best part about being Primal: Everything
Worst part about being Primal: Having to listen to people tell me how unhealthy I am and having to explain myself.
