    Aimee's Primal Journal

    Primal Fuel
    Hi

    I am on day one of the 30 day challenge, after about 3 weeks of dipping my toes into it. I am fine during the week but struggle on the weekend in social situations!

    Anyway, here it goes......

    B: Piece of frittata with courgette, mushroom and parma ham. Tea

    S: 5 Brazils

    L: Leftover beef curry with cauliflower mash and spinach.

    S: 7 Macadamians + small apple

    D: 1 Thai Sweet Potato and Parsnip cake with 1/4 avo, fried egg, 1 pork sausage. Half glass of red wine.

    A few glasses of water during the day. Small square of 80% choc.

    Walked approx. 4 miles to and from work.

    I think I should cut out some of the nuts maybe....?

    Welcome. That amount of nuts doesn't seem excessive, depending on your goals. I hope the challenge goes great for you.

    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.

    Day 2
    I was supposed to get up early to try the fitness self assessment....but I snoozed instead!

    I tried IF for the first time for breakfast....I was absolutely starving by 11.30, so much so that my colleague could hear my tummy grumble. So I caved and had a handful of nuts (no counting this time ;-) ).

    L: Sweet Potato Cake, Half Avo, 2 Sausages, apple

    S: Nuts - Macadamian, small salami, apple

    D: Chicken Fajitas with mushroom, pepper, scallions in lettuce with small bit of sour cream and other half of avo.

    2 squares of chocolate.

    WOD: Body Pump for 1 hour

    Is body pump recommended by all the Primal team..I am not sure?
    Walked 4 miles to and from work.

    To bed....

    So I disappeared for a few days..busy work week and too tired to write!

    I fell off the wagon a little bit this weekend after a very good week. I had a few corn tortillas and chips. Back on it now though....

    B: Scrambled egg with spinach and piece of bacon.
    S: Homemade trail mix with a little dark chocolate - couple of handfuls.

    D: Cheat Pizza from modernpaleowarfare.com. It is made with almond flour, coconut milk, egg and then toppings - mozzarella, tomatoes, rocket and prosciutto.
    Glass of red wine.

    16km mountain bike ride...hard work but awesome!

    Sounds like you're doing great! I think body pump is reasonably primal - its certainly lifting heavy things provided that you are pushing yourself. At the same time, make sure you're not over doing it if its a long class

    I'm impressed at you getting an hours worth of sunshine! It seems like any time I manage to get some time outdoors at the moment it starts clouding up and threatening rain. Yesterday I got completely drenched when I went to the shops but it was lovely and sunny for the rest of the day!

    Well..an hour sunshine in London is not quite full on sun as you know! It is better than nothing though - enjoy it while it lasts!

    I felt pretty tired all day today even after a good sleep. I think I needed more food...?

    B: 2 eggs scrambled with butter
    S: Macadamians
    L: Small piece of wild salmon, tomato, half avo
    L number 2 as that was not enough: baked ham, blueberried and 2 spoons of greek yoghurt

    S: Homemade protein bar before gym

    D: 2 small minute steaks, courgette, roast red pepper, halloumi and portobello mushroom with garlic buttter

    Body Pump tonight, felt a bit weak on my weights today. Still hungry after dinner!
