    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification


    Day 8-

    Had another intramuscular injection today, these are starting to hurt despite my high pain tolerance. The doctor told me I will need two more........aaahhhh. Well, sometimes there is a place for conventional medicine.


    Brk- 8ish: 3 ounce pork loin sauteed with coconut oil, 1/2 cup jicama and 1.5 oz avocado


    Snack- 12- can of sardines in olive oil, tad of sea salt


    Lunch- 3:30 Charrazo- you can't get much more primal than this, it's a huge pork bone with pieces of meat still stuck on, slowly roasted. Had some guacamole with it and vegetable consome- veggie broth soup. It looks like a lot, but realistically once you get all the meat off the bone, it's mainly bone- very delicious though and oh so primal looking


    Dinner- about to have- 7pm, 1 oz pork loin and 4 ounces white fish cooked in coconut oil.


    2 liter H20

    Half an hour/ 45 minute walk- am stronger than yesterday, feels good to be getting my strength back.

    Day 9


    Breakfast- leftover arrachera with a little olive oil and parsley and 3.6 ounces of fish in coconut oil, touch of sea salt


    Snack- 3 oz pork loin with 1/2 cup jicama and 1.5 oz avocado


    Lunch 4pm- 1/2 roasted chicken dipped in red salsa

    1/2 cup jicama and .25 oz avocado


    Dinner- 8 pm. 3 arrachera tacos (no tortilla) with guacamole, salsa, and a lot of grilled onions and some cucumber.


    Felt much better today, thank you Cece. I really am noticing a decrease in my appetite, I need to be aware of this so I can change my portions. Lunch and dinner were a bit too much for me; nice to see this change- now just practice awareness to accomodate it.


    I think this was of eating is helping me to get over the flu much faster.


    Walk, 60 minutes

    2 liter H2O

    Day 13-

    Had a great Domingo. I went to the largest market in the world (food/ wholesale/ goods market), saw Santa Fe, enjoyed lots of walking, played- yes PLAYED some fun games with friends, and tango danced in a quaint town square- wonderful day.


    Eating was also great. I tried my first IF. This morning I feel good, and I'm so surprised- but it was actually easy!


    Had some self-doubting emotions creep up yesterday about my goals and appearance, ability, etc and successfully disciplined myself to not acknowledge them and keep moving forward. Feels great. You get what you put your attention on!


    Breakfast- 9:30 2 oz chorizo

    Snack- 12ish 2.5 oz chorizo

    Lunch 2/3pm- green juice (celery, cilantro, alfalfa, grapefruit juice) unstrained and one bistek taco with salsa, radish, and onion. Then I had a fruit bowl with wonderfully delicious in-season fruits topped with some dried coconut. This was my "scheduled deviation for the week". I allow myself one, within an hour period. Higher carb, so delicious- and besides the corn tortilla, totally primal.


    Then, nothing else all day!

    2 Liter h2o

    Caminar, bailar.......walking and dancing, and playing. Followed by about 8 hours of good sleep.


    Me vida es bella!

    Day 14

    Wow, two weeks of primal, nice!


    Brk 9am- 5.6 ounces of white fish fried up in coconut oil, still a bit hungry so added 1.5 oz of roasted chicken


    Snack 12- 3 oz pork with 1 oz avocado


    Lunch 3- about 4 oz roasted chicken and 1 cup lettuce, 1 cup jicama. Salsa, olive oil, and some sea salt to taste


    Dinner 8pm- arrachera alambre (steak sauteed with onion and bell pepper) about 4 oz. Also had about a cup of grilled onions and 1/2 c. cucumber. I know onions are high carb, but grilled onions from this taqueria are to die for! So delicious.


    Took an hour nap. Walked about 1.25 hours. 2 liters of water, vitamins.


    I'm really liking honoring when I need sleep and when I don't, when I'm hungry, when I'm not.......


    Looking forward to more IF. I think it might work best for me to do "condensed IFing" where I stop eating at like 3pm and then don't eat until the next day. Works better than skipping breakfast for me.


    Besos Amigos,

    Jade
