    Great journal - keep it up!

    Would you be at all interested in posting what made up your daily diet? I am kinda fascinated by what other primal eaters actually eat...

    Notes: The Man Maker kicked my butt today. This was the first time I used the 32kg kettlebell for it and it destroyed me cardio wise. I tried to jump rope after doing sets with it but that just wasn't working. I stopped at 10 minutes and plan on working my way up to 12 minutes soon.

    Notes: Wow, I got my ass stomped by this workout. My friend is a kettlebell instructor and wanted to bring me through this to show how much work you can get done in a short amount of time. I haven&#39;t been this tired after a workout in years.


    My shoulders got destroyed by the cleans and the presses. This made everything else near impossible. I did not get all my double lifts and double swings in towards the top of the pyramid.


    I plan to start working this into my workout plan once a week from now and and work up to using double 24kg kettlebells.

    Random Thoughts

    I&#39;m working on kicking my addiction to Monster Energy Drinks. I do drink the sugar free ones but I know they are not healthy for me and they aren&#39;t cheap. I drank two of them and really didn&#39;t need to. I like the taste but don&#39;t get an energy kick from them anymore.

    I went to see a movie with some friends and got a small popcorn. Unfortunately, I let that turn into more than a small cheat meal. I went home and ate two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, a small bowl of Doritos, and a bran muffin.


    This is the big thing I struggle with go off any diet/eating style. I just say f-it and eat for the sake of eating.

    My hamstrings hurt like hell from yesterday and decided to take the day off.

    Once again, binge problems, ugh. I went to a friends to watch the UFC fights and before I knew it I was eating the chips and eclairs my friend had laid out. Which turned into Taco Bell and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich when I got home. I kept telling myself after eating at my friends "I&#39;ll eat better tomorrow" or "Tomorrow will be the day I stop eating like this." What I really need to do is limit myself!
