    Week #1
    10/10 - 10/16

    Gave up soda completely this week drinking only water and 1 8oz beer, Deschutes White IPA Conflux 2. Attempting to change eating habits as well. The hardest part being bread. Avoided fast food but still had some dairy. Started and ended week at 176lbs. Excercise was limited, I rode approx 2 miles 3x this week. First couple days energy was little low but I am finding it easier to wind down at the end of the day then before.

    Great start. You may feel weird after cutting out carbs (dry mouth, hungry, etc.) It gets easier. If you cut one thing per week, you'll be pretty much on the plan in about a month.

    Caved in to cravings yesterday and ate a granola bar. Felt sick about 30 minutes later...

    Focused today and had a breakfast of carrot / kale / ginger juice, cottage cheese, blueberries and almonds.
    Lunch was spaghetti squash "noodles" with meat sauce, and leftover salmon.
    Brought a small chunk of romano and some almonds for a snack in case a granola bar calls my name.

    I've also noticed that the hills on my bike commute are easier after a few weeks of lifting heavy things that includes squats and kettlebell swings. Sprinting today, then building a fence.

    Great Primal Day with eggs and veggies, salami & almonds with a great hike. Slow-cooked pumpkin and squash chili with venison and it turned out great. Weight is steady at 159 (11 pounds down since 9/10/11, but hope for a few more. Grok on!

    Weight is stable, and another 1/2 inch off the waist since 10/16/11. But, I'm craving sweets like crazy and caved in to a handful of chocolate candy yesterday....how to avoid the cravings?

    Made an awesome squash / venison chili and then leftover venison tacos afterwards. Chickens are laying again, so don't have worry about what's in the store bought stuff any longer. Overdid the carbs and vices tonight at a party with friends, but easily keeping 80% faithful. Great hike today, hunting yesterday with a 20 minute intense workout - rounds of assisted single-legged squats, pushups, pullups, prisoner squats, shoulder press, burpees, T-pushups and plank.

    Crazy two weeks coming up at work, need to stay Grok when the stress goes up...
