My Kenyan Primal Journey
Here i am, i was supposed to start journaling yesterday but never got around to it. Most people in Kenya are probably unaware of PB lifestyle and this includes my entire family and friends whom i hope to introduce PB. I am embarking on a 90 days primal challenge to introduce me to primal life and have credible leverage to convey the benefits of such a lifestyle to them. I have read every research i can about PB and i am already a true believer. Even more importantly, i want to change my life, be a healthy, happy, lean, and fit. I am certain that after these 90 days, there will be no going back.
I hope to lose at least 24 pounds by January 8th 2013. I started primal eating last week on Friday and have been strict ever since. However, my official day 1 was yesterday. It has been eye opening and a very welcome change. I am feeling quite satisfied after every meal and not overly hungry all the time. I had some bad headaches the first 3 days, i guess its the so called 'carb flu'. It wasn't there today, so i hope the headaches are gone, they can be quite uncomfortable. So far, i love primal eating and its going great.
I love exercise and i was worried that my workout may not fit in with PB life. Contrary to this, i did a HIIT jump rope workout for 30 minutes yesterday and it felt really good. Before PB i was feeling drained and exhausted after a workout and this even discouraged me from working out. Today, i did a Dumbbell strength training workout and i felt strong and energetic doing it. I want to exercise consistently for these ninety days, doing HIIT jump rope workouts 3 days/week, strength training 2 days/week, and occasional walks. Maybe soon when i can, i will incorporate some play into my life.
