Primal Journal for AprilS
Well I just found out about Primal eating a little over a week ago and decided to give it a try. I used last week to "practice" and lost 7 lbs! So today I am starting the 21 day transformation. Figured I'd have better luck keeping my journal on here than writing it down.
B: 3 egg scramble and a small apple
L: mixed green salad with a walnuts, sunflower seeds, black olives and cranberries. Splash of olive oil and vinegar for dressing. 1/2 cup steamed broccoli and a grilled chicken breast. (Nice to know it is easy to eat primal in my school cafeteria!)
D: eggs and 2 strips bacon (I know that seems like a lot of eggs in one day....but the family wanted "breakfast for dinner". So I had the bacon and eggs and skipped the pancakes that the rest of them were having.
S: Dark chocolate bar and black tea.
My challenge today was to add two instances of "moving slowly more often" today. I made sure to take the stairs at school (three flights). I also tried to take breaks from long stretches of sitting. I could defiantly do more...but that'll come.
So far it has been really easy to transition into Primal eating/lifestyle. Granted a large part of that is having a very supportive family which makes it much easier. Even though I can't completely clean out the cupboards of all non-primal foods, but the family has been really good about not stocking foods that would just be too much of a temptation.
Oh....and I treated myself to the dark chocolate. It was a planned treat...and I enjoyed it.

B: scrambled eggs, two sausage patties, apple, black tea
L: I wasn't hungry...so I decided to not worry about it until I was hungry.
S: about 10 almonds
D: 1/4 of a spaghetti squash and homemade meat sauce. (The kids loved this too!)
Well I parked at the end of the parking lot at school, took the stairs, and had a brief 10 minute walk between two of my classes. I need to figure out other ways to fit in more movement. Since going back to college this has been hard for me to accomplish.
