    Primal Journal Oso Rojo

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Hey everyone,

    Believe it or not, I was first introduced to Paleo/Primal when I was involved with Cross Fit a few years ago. I did really well. For some reason, I decided to wantonly do a weight gain to increase my strength gains. Long story short, I herniated a disc from not doing my mobility work and not warming up properly. The final result was a 60 pound weight gain without the desired strength gains. Returning to my sloppy, high carb eating habits and careless training did me in. I could have much more effectively gained weight by slowly adding a few more eggs and sweet potatoes into the mix each day. Hind sight is always 20/20.

    I was a fat kid growing up. Hey, I'm not going to sugar coat it for you! I was always sick and asthmatic to boot. By age 13 I weighed 242 pounds and had a 42 inch waist. I got harassed about my weight pretty regularly. I had severe milk allergies beginning around middle school. The stomach cramps were crippling. In eighth grade my parents bought me weight set. IT WAS ON! I remember my first book was Stuart McRobert's Brawn and doing those high volume workouts. The high volume workouts eventually burnt me out, and I gained all my weight back my senior year of high school. The only workouts that ever left me feeling strong and fight ready were the S&C sessions from high school foot ball. My weight yo yo'd throughout college due to the mass gain and rapid weight loss cycles. Can you see a pattern begin to emerge here.

    I took a Paleo challenge in my box gym and had results that were nothing less than stellar. Allergies gone! Love handles gone! The above mentioned mass gain project ran the wheels off of my Paleo wagon.

    Anyway, my goal is to get my body fat down to around 10% and find a sustainable method for being fit while keeping my strength gains. I'm Cross Fit Football (CFBB) Certified and will use the CFFB for the bulk of my S&C (lift heavy things and sprint once in a while) and couple the S&C with some hiking on the weekends.

    I had have my hard drive replaced. My training has been great. I jerked 225# for the first time in over a year last week! I'm definitely getting stronger, and I amped up my low level activity by walking about an hour on off days.
    I've also gotten some pastured pork and beef. Below are some of meals I've cooked.
