    Primal Journal (scottydoesntknow)

    Primal Fuel
    Ok, so exercise only gets me so far, and I'm feeling like making a few dietary changes will push me over the hump to where I want to be weight and health wise. Soooo, I came across this site from a link from one of my CrossFit coaches and liked what I've seen and read so far. I have looked at the paleo diet before and am interested in giving it some sort of try. I've been "quasi" paleo dieting for about a month so far and I think I'll try a bit harder now.
    I'm in the best shape of my life since I was in my early 20's and hope to be able to drop my weight by about 10 lbs while continuing to build a little more muscle and then stay there around 170, that's the hard part it seems, staying at your fighting weight.
    I just ate the last piece of bread I hope to eat for the next 3 weeks or so (barring maybe a hamburger bun or 2). I made it public to my coworkers that I'm planning to avoid bread at work for the next 3 weeks (which sucks since they make great bread here), so here goes.
    Wish me luck

    getting started

    So for my last day of (formerly) normal eating I ate:

    b: a bowl of cornflakes with milk (I know this isn't the best for paleo, but really nothing offered at work was good looking or fit the paleo mold anyway)
    s: plain yogurt with about 1 oz of granola, 2 handfuls of peanuts
    l: 3 flat taco like things with shredded chicken for meat, some onion, lettuce, sprinkled cheese, avocado chunks, and tomato chunks
    s: one small baguette sized peanut butter and jelly sandwich (my last bread for a few weeks, or that's the plan anyway)
    d: 1/2 cup Tempe, 1/2 cup spaghetti with meat/mushroom sauce, 1/2 cup of leafy veggies and carrots.
    post workout: 1 tbs peanut butter

    today's morning weight clothed is 179.8lbs

    Tonight I plan to do some heavy ab work and row at least 5000m, perhaps trying to beat my 1000 time each time successively with ab work in between 1000m sets, sounds like a pretty good WOD, roughly 12 minutes of ab work and 20 minutes of rowing
    update: did 5x1000m getting faster on each set and 2-3 minutes ab work between each set after having a warmup of pushups, squats and stretching. Cooldown was the fish game
