    My get fit and don't eat my pet rabbit Jornal

    Primal Fuel
    My name Is Holly And I'm a long time lurker of Marks Daily Apple.
    I've toyed with Primal off and on for about a year now. External forces have always thwarted my efforts (sugar binging roommate and my friends in college). I tend to get let the will power of pizza ruin my goals and set me back, but in general I abstain from bread and excess sugar. I recently bought the Primal Blueprint book before I knew about the challenge. In the long run I have about 130lbs to loose, but I know if I can get through these first 30 days the rest will be easy.


    My prechallenge stats are:
    Age: 22
    Height: 5'8"
    Weight: 260.4 lbs

    I plan to spend this next month:
    1. Getting at least 8 hours of sleep a day/ night
    2. Stay way from the cheese cake and scones at work ( public enemy #1 & 2)
    3. 3-5 hours of exercise each week
    4. Drop a pants size
    5. Encouraging my friends to eat primaly
    6. promoting awareness of the evilsness of grains

    Welcome to PB! I hope you find the 30 day challenge worth while. My only advice is to worry less about selling the idea to others and focus on yourself and what you need for the next 30 days. You are what matters ... nothing and no one else does. Enjoy the food, enjoy the exercise, celebrate every freaking day and honor yourself.

    Thanks for the advice girlarchitect!
    I think I included those mainly to push myself to tell others why I'm turning down pizza. So I'm not hiding my lifestyle changes from all my friends.

    Day 2:

    Highly relaxing and productive day until work called me in an emergency then I ended up cranky... again.

    B: Scrambled eggs and walnuts
    L: BAS same as yesterday
    D: RIBS! and green beans with bacon bits
    S: 2 squared of chocolate, A berry smoothie: 1/3 cup mixed berries, 1/3 cup coconut milk, a dash of Cinnamon and Vanilla

    Work out: 45 minute walk first thing after I woke up, and a 20 minute light swim after dinner.

    Welcome Holly. Good luck with the challenge.
    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.

    Thank you Hedonist! I'm enjoying every minute of it of the challenge. I've lost a couple pound already which is amazing.

    r
    Quiet often yes when Wash is being a jerk and chewing on cords and what not. She's a White albino Mini Rex I believe, she's owned me for 7 ish month now. I brought a kitten home this week to see if I could adopt it but Wash has been a viscous viscous rabbit, chasing and biting the kitten. I swear she could be the Monty Python rabbit when she's angry.

    My friends still joke about how Wash would make delicious stew on occasions. I've never admit how tempted I was before I officially adopted her (Found her in the middle of the road)

    Heh. I think rabbits are the cutest thing in the world and could never eat one unless I would starve otherwise, and even then I would have to force myself to do it.
