    My Journey (Primal Journal: Rob)

    Primal Fuel
    My name is Rob and this is my inital 30 day journal of going primal. I plan to record exercise, food and thoughts of the day.

    Comments, questions, support, constructive critcism are welcome and highly encouraged!

    Day 1

    Exercise:
    ½ mile sprint, push ups/flutterkicks; ½ mile jog, burpees; ½ mile sprints, push ups/flutterkicks; ½ mile jog, burpees

    Food:
    breakfast; protein shake with whey protein and keifer
    lunch; chicken and broccoli
    supper; chick filet :-(

    Thoughts:
    Pretty good day up until supper. Super excited about this 30 day challenge, and very determined to see it through, reading ch1 of the Primal Blueprint.

    Day 2

    No exercise, rest day.

    Food:
    breakfast; protein shake with whey protein and keifer and blueberries
    lunch; chicken and broccoli and cauliflower
    supper; roast beef with potatoes and carrots.
    Snack; ½ bar of dark chocolate, 70% caco

    Thoughts:
    It was a much better day food-wise. Reading ch2 of the Primal Blueprint and feeling really good about my decision. Watched an episode of a show called ‘I, Caveman’ where 10 people try to live 10 days like our paleo ancestors did. The episode I saw, they used an atl-atl to kill an elk for food, so I google-searched atl-atl and now am interested in trying to make one for myself.

    Day 4
    Exercise:
    30 min of weights, calisthenics and plyometrics

    Food:

    Breakfast – whey protein shake with keifer and blueberries

    Lunch – chicken and green salad with cranberries, macadamia nuts, shredded cheese, and vinaigrette for dressing.

    Supper – chicken and broccoli

    Thoughts:
    So far so good! Feeling pretty good, however it’s the weekend and historically weekends don’t go well for me; i.e. I fall off the wagon. I feel like if I can make it past this weekend hurdle I will be doing good, also been wondering when the carb blues/flu is going to set in and how I will do getting over that hurdle. Any suggestions out there???
    .


    Day 5

    Exercise:
    Played with my kids at the playground and walked a bit

    Food:

    Breakfast – scrambled eggs with cheese and avocado, nitrate free bacon

    Lunch – chicken and macadamia nut/cranberries trail mix

    Supper – grass fed ground beef cooked in coconut oil, stir-fry vegetables cooked in coconut oil, onion and mushrooms sautéed in butter, avocado on the side.

    Thoughts:
    Feeling REALLY good today! Had a wonderful time at the park with the kids just playing and walking the dog. Seems like my fears for the weekend were unfounded since I am maintaining the discipline to keep on the primal path.

    Day 8

    Exercise: yard work (hoeing and raking mulch)

    Breakfast – whey protein shake with blueberries and organic milk
    Lunch – chicken and green leafy salad w/ cranberries, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, and cheese

    Day 10

    Exercise: took a break

    Food:

    Breakfast – scrambled eggs and nitrate-free bacon
    Lunch – chicken and broccoli
    Supper – chick filet

    Thoughts: Had to run errands in the evening with the family and we ended up getting chick filet. NOT happy about it and wondering on a scale of 1-10 how horrible it was. Oh well tomorrow is another day.
