    Primal Fuel
    9-12-11 Monday

    Im 30 yrs old full time student and employee, i love anything active and my life goals are to become a holistic nutritionist and live past a 100 while still being mindfull and very active. I have been very active my entire life with any sport i could get my hands on, i have always been trying to improve my eating style since high school. 1 year ago i was intruduced to the paleo diet and was very sceptical about no grains/legumes because of my trouble keeping muscle gains and reading way to many health and fitness mags. I stuck it out for 3 months and decided it wasnt all the hype so i began to put grains back into my diet and my body clearly disagreed with me and i had no choice but to listen. the next 4 months i droped from 180lbs 12%fat to 160lbs 4%fat where i stayed. I fell onto MDA 3 months ago started to learn about healthy fats and started to notice strength and lean muscle gains while fat % stayed the same. I have been primal for 3 months at about 95-5 and saw the challenge. excited !!!!

    brkfst- a mix of raw nuts, serving of grapes, kiwi,

    Click on the big green forum button, then on whichever forum you want to post in. Then click on the big dark green +Post New Thread. Is that what you were asking?
    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.

    9-14-11 Wednesday My 31st birthday!!!!!!!!

    Very, very sore from yesterdays workout and because of the busy day between work and school today is going to be rest and stretch. But because of the busy day I also dont feel as if i provided my body with the nutrients I would have liked too.

    I just now decided that im going to put my meals down in numbers because i eat by how i feel as far as time and quantity goes.

    meal 1- 5 eggs,handful of blueberries, 1 strawberry, daily vit., 1g omega 3's
    meal 2- previous nights dinner
    meal 3- 1 cup mixed nuts, 1 cup grapes, half cup fresh coconut meat
    meal 4- protein shake: whey protein, 1/4 cup blueberries, coconut oil, cocoa powder, kefer, water
    meal 5- last of previous nights dinner with couple handfulls of mixed nuts
    meal 6- a total of about 1pound of organic ground chicken and beef, handfull of nuts,whey protein w water

    no sun exposure besides face and arms
    1+ gal of water could have drank a lot more due to work load
    7 hours of sleep could have used more with the workout i did yesterday
    workout- off day
    movement- half hour stretching/lower body

    i would fail myself for today as far as primal goes, because of lack of time today i went for to many nuts and a second helping of whey protein, i should have had more veggies and greens,

    smoothie and salad i made at whole foods. I try to limit doing this more than twice a week only because it gets very expensive but its a great alternative to everything else out there. If i spend more than i want than ill cut back somewhere else on the weekends, i think spending money on the healthiest food available is an investment and not a waste.

    m 1- 5 eggs, hand full of blueberries, daily vit., 2g omega 3's.
    m 2- 2 hand fulls of mixed nuts,(raw and organic- brazil,almond,hazel,cashew,macadamian,pecans,pumpk in seeds) meat from half a coconut.
    m 3- 16oz green smoothie-kale,spinach i allways tell them heavy on the greens and they do it, mango,banana,strawberries,ginger,coconut water,scoop of protein.
    m 4- salad(from whole foods) spinach,arugula,tomato,celery,carrots,shoots,beets ,cucumber,soybeans,baked chicken leg and breast on the bone( all the way down to the marrow)
    m 5- chicken liver spiced with curry powder,cayenne,black p., vegies-kale,tomato,green and red pepper,long green onion tasting things,lots of garlic,thyme,oregano,tarragon, low low heat for just a couple minutes, to lighten up the 5 cloves of garlic. All on a bed of fresh greens

    sun- nope
    workout- no (rest needed) listening to your body and making sure you recover properly is just as important as the workouts.
    water-close to 2 gal
    nutrition- great today! at least i think, feel free to comment anyone
    sleep/previous night- 6 hrs.

    because of my workout 2 days ago and its intensity, work being very very physically demanding last 2 days, soreness in muscles not going away like normal. The number one thing i can do better is get more sleep and tonight i will do just that.

    Sooooooo..... although i want to leave a few things out and just forget them i dont believe it would be beneficial to me or to anyone reading my thread. Here it goes, I cheated! I will include the bad food and what happened that caused me to fall of my challenge. I am however starting over even though it wont be legit, i told myself i would do it and im going to do it. If this happens to anyone out there i guess all i can say is dont beat yourself up and dont ignore that you did it and try your best to finish your goal.

    m 1- 5 eggs, hand full of blueberries, daily vit., 2g Omega 3's
    m 2- 1/4 of the meat from full coconut, 4 strawberries
    m 3- half of my left overs from dinner
    m 4- the remaining 1/4 of the coconut, 4 strawberries
    m 5- the rest of the left overs from dinner
    All this was consumed by 4 o'clock. With plans to go eat at a Jamaican restaurant at 7:30 i didnt eat anything else. I was the first to arrive at the new restaurant and ordered a water and jerk shrimp with the mind set that i was not going to deviate from my challenge. My friends arrive and i order my meal(coconut curry scallops and shrimp) i wasnt aware that there were sides with this dish and when asked the 2 best options were fried plantains and steamed veggies, and the challenge starts to slip away from me. After the plantains the bar tender made coconut banana daiquiri and i commented on the fact that was my favorite so the kind bar tender she was she gave me the left overs and i didnt refuse, then my friend ordered my a red stripe and i didnt refuse that either. fried plantains,coconut banana daiquiri, 3 red stripes latter i caved all the way and ordered i Jamaican jerk fish patty( its fish inside of a light flaky pastry bread.

    sun- yes
    workout- no
    water- 1+ gal.
    nutrition- good up until dinner
    sleep- this i did improve and i got just a little over 9 hours and felt great

    woke up with a horrible stomach ache!!! thats what i get for not having will power.

    m 1- 5 eggs, couple slices of bacon
    m 2- post workout shake( whey protein,coconut oil,strawberries
    m 3- salad(spinach,1 avocado,1 tomato,sugar snap peas,mushrooms,mixed nuts) very filling!

    Tonight I went to a friends house to watch the Mayweather and Ortiz fight. I was positive there would be lots of temptations so I stuffed myself with one of my favorite foods, coconut shrimp. I was right about the food, lots of pizza,chips,soda,cookies, just to name a few. I brought with me a banana and lots of my favorite mixed nuts to eat when i wanted to cheat. Just like Mayweather i left victorious but without any controversy.

    sun- just enough
    workout- shoulders/chest- overhead barbell press,handstand pushups,arnold presses,ring dips,ring pushups.
    water-2+ gal. felt like i had to flush the bad from the day before
    nutrition- not the best as far as quantity but very fresh and healthy food today
    sleep- just over 8 hrs/good
