    Primal Fuel


    Starting a fresh journal for the April challenge that seems to be floating around. Trying to get in the right mind-set. Probly won't join the other thread though.


    I think I will take all my stats- weight, measurements, and fasting blood sugars on April 1. Then I don't plan to weigh again till May 1 but I will post fasting sugars most days. Want to get away from the scale mentality.


    My goals for April:

    No dairy

    No chocolate

    No wine

    Keep it to meat and veggies as much as possible.

    Exercise 6 days a week even if it's just a walk.

    Let go of insecurities and inhibitions.


    Rock on.

    Awesome DC! I'm with ya on the exercise, the new treadmill has been awesome to just walk on. No excuse for sitting on my ass anymore


    I'm not doing any sort of strict challenge in April, but maybe I'll add in a few goals to my journal, like walking every day and especially every day after dinner. More moving slowly ya know.


    Good luck with the no chocolate, I'm not even gonna try that ;P

    DH has decided he is going to do the April challenge with me so that will make this so much easier. He is notorious for buying big costco bags of chips and chips are my nemisis.

    I don't think the no chocolate will be a problem....it's the wine I'm worried about!

    That's awesome that your husband is joining in! It will definitely help not having "his" temptations around, and maybe y'all can go for walks together and stuff.
    Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

    Good luck! I'm sure you'll do great - especially with the hubs along. It makes it so much easier with an in-house buddy (or competition, as the case may be!).

    Cool

    I just now discovered the advance button to get to the smilies. And you can rate threads! That's so cool.

    Weight: 146.5
    Fasting blood sugar: 94

    So I won't be weighing again till May 1. I have thought it over and realize that I use the scale sort of as permission to eat like crap. I'll weigh and then be like oh my weight is really good so now I will go eat a fistfull of chocolate or 5 slices of pizza. So the goal is just to be primal and be ambivalent about weight.

    The plan foodwise today: scrambled eggs in butter with mushrooms and salsa, chicken curry salad, meatballs in coconut oil, green salad with tomato and olive oil/vinegar. Almost the same as yesterday.

    Exercise today: will walk for 1 hour on my treadmill after work. It's pouring cats and dogs today.
