So I officially started changing to a Primal lifestyle one week ago. A friend and I are doing our own 30-day challenge. I figured I'd start posting here for the official 30-Day Challenge.
I've been doing fairly well food-wise... pretty close to 100%. I'm coming into this as a somewhat-healthy eater, but did have whole grains and brown rice quite often. However, my vice is beer... I love a good, dark microbrew. I can say that it was very tough on the first football Sunday to sip sparkling water while friends imbibed.
My goal is not so much to lose weight, but to be more healthy and fit. My husband and I will be trying to start a family in the near future, and I want to get fit and healthy before any little ones are created.
I'm including my weight below, but the number on the scale doesn't bother me as much if I know it's not fat. Keeping to a "diet" isn't really hard for me, but I really don't like to exercise. I've never enjoyed it, but I'm trying to do more as I know it's necessary.
So here are my stats as of September 5th:
Starting weight: 126
Starting body fat: 26.61% -or- 33.5 pounds (estimated)
Upper arm: 12.25"
** Waist-to-hip ratio: 0.76
I wasn't very hungry yesterday, so I really didn't eat much.
1 slice bacon
2 mini chicken sausage links
handful of blueberries
1/2 C curried cauliflower
Fruit smoothie (frozen strawberries, fresh blueberries, coconut milk, 1T coconut oil, 1T chia seeds)
** I'm ticked that I forgot to put baby spinach in this!
6oz baked salmon (skin on)
homemade tomato sauce (tomato, olive oil & spices)
1T coconut butter
75 kettle ball swings (20lbs)
I will try to come back every day to update with my daily food intake and any exercise I do. I'm hoping this will keep me accountable... I really want to make this a permanent change.
