    Apparently the chicken wings weren't cooked properly! Woops.

    Lunch yesterday was fish, veges and brown rice, followed by a lime mousse dessert.

    Dinner was pork chops in plum sauce. They were so good I had two!

    Didn't have soccer training, so did some essential movements.

    Lunch today is tuna + salad with avocado, and some watermelon and orange slices.

    Another run with the dog today, and some heavy lifting: squats, deadlifts, bench press, and pullups.

    Soccer games have started, so three times a week I'll be doing 1 1/2 hours of training or playing. Very exciting.

    Had some takeaway over the weekend, pizza, sushi and ice cream. Spent monday walking around shopping for a new mattress and other things.

    Was very pleased to see I have returned to my pre-cruise weight of 96 this morning. My steak for lunch will be very tasty knowing I'm back on track.

    Had a week 'off the wagon' so to speak, had a sandwich or two and coke, chocolate, potatoes. Only a bit each day, and managed to maintain my weight. Much relief, so we're back into it.

    A big struggle is lunches, and what to have/take for lunch. Unless theres a chicken in the fridge, it's a bit hard to come up with something to take without spending lots of time making a salad. So I've come up with a genious plan that involves splitting my dinner in two and talking half the next day. Since I exercise everyday, I never really feel like eating at night, so a smaller dinner is perfect, and having lunch the next day has me sorted.

    Continuing to IF until lunch at 12:30, soccer or kickboxing as well as a dog walk/run in the afternoons, small dinner afterwards. Being 100% primal for the last two days is feeling great.

    Alright, first up, a weigh-in: 95.2kg. A loss of .8kgs, which is pretty good considering this week has been maybe 60-70% primal. I've been hitting the exercise hard, which brings me to:

    Crossfit. I've been interested in doing this for some time now, so I was quite excited to see my town has not one but two Crossfit gyms. I got lucky as the rain had soaked our soccer pitch, and this was the alternate training arranged. The trainer took about 40 minutes to show the group of 15 all the moves, since we were all beginners.

    Then in teams of 3 we did this work out (brackets are what I estimate I did):
    150 lat jumps (50)
    100 kb swings (30)
    50 burpees (20)
    100 box jumps (30-40, can't remember exactly how we split this up)
    50 squats (20)
    100 situps (40)
    150 lat jumps (not quite 50, between 30-40)

    I love this way of working out, and need to decide if I want to do Crossfit 3x a week, or stick with doing kickboxing. It might come down to whatever is cheaper.

    94.8kg. Another half a kilo down.

    Made some awesome chicken last night. Marinated in lime juice and tequila with a cajun rub, seared in the pan then finished in the oven with salsa and cheese.

    Got some ideas for some workouts over the weekend.

    So there's a 21st this weekend, and with a hectic easter and such, I haven't been thinking about what I've eaten, and done no exercise. But between this weekend, and my birthday weekend, is 15 weeks.

    So the first thing I'm doing to dropping alcohol completely until my birthday.
    Then I'm eating primal, as best I can.
    And I have a workout plan to try and stick to.

    Everyday I'll take a photo of either a meal, or the exercise I'm doing.
