    Primal Journal ~ Roxy for better skin and staying healthy as long as I live

    Primal Fuel
    Joined the group last night and so I will start reading the book first. There are lots of good material so I will probably start slow.

    It's the first time for a long time, I woke up without alarm clock and got to work before 8:30 AM.
    I haven't eaten anything yet just drinking water. I usually don't have breakfast. I will read the book and see what is good since I really don't feel like eating anything until lunch.

    I currently have quite a bit breakouts on my face this past 2 weeks. Hope to have it clear without using chemical.

    Need to get back to work. Post more end of day.

    Hey Roxy. I just started too. I made a group to try to get all the New Year's newbies together so we can all stay motivated.

    Welcome. Come join.

    Day #2. I just joined the New Year's newbies today.
    My goal is still keeping good weight and health.
    I want to increasing vitamin D level since it's related to my S.A.D issue especially living in Seattle area in the winter time.
    I want to control excessive tearing of the eyes symptom caused by some type of vitamins deficiency.

    I did a few good things today to log on.
    1. Woke up earlier than usual.
    2. Didn't have any dairy (usually it's the mocha breve).
    3. Took vitamin D supplement and went for a short 5 minutes tan to increase my vitamin D level. It's currently low at 23 ng/mL.
    4. Drank 32oz of water (usually I don't really drink much)
    5. Yesterday I had a good amount of dance to keep my activity level up but not working out hard.
    6. Had broccoli with a little bit of olive oil for breakfast (usually I don't have breakfast)

    Not so good
    1. At Garlic Naan and a little rice at the restaurant
    2. Feeling sleepy after meal

    Very likely I will have some dance practice in tonight ... not as active today compare to yesterday.

    Day #3 -- This is for yesterday since I logged just reading people's comments but at the end of the day too sleepy to get online.

    Workout: dance for 2 1/2 hours not too hard ... just some fast/slow dance movements mix and I wasn't tired at the end.
    B: just water
    L: 2 bowls of seafood soup (homemade) -- with celery homemade broth, mussels, salmon, squids, shrimp, a little bit of potatoes (couldn't resist but I didn't eat too much of it compare to usual).
    S: 8oz mocha breve from Starbucks -- this is my weakness and it will take awhile to get rid off.
    D: Curry Chicken at a restaurant (it has coconut milk, curry, chicken, carrot, a handful of little cubes of potatoes ... it's not bad but I didn't do well when I used the french bread to dip into it).

    Overall, I did better than usually by aware of what I'm eating and I didn't eat too much carb.
    I'd give myself a 65% rating for day #3 effort

    Day #4 -- woke up around 8:30 AM because I forgot to turn off the alarm clock, but then I didn't get out of bed until an hour later. Super sleepy today.

    Workout: Dance for 2 hours -- lightweight but I sweat a bit after an hour in. I did feel a bit better after workout.

    B: just water
    L: 1 cup of butternut squash soup 1 1/2 banana (around noon).
    S: 4oz of tuna filet with sesame seeds mix seasoning
    S: 1 cup of chai tea and 1 baklava
    D: butter chicken, 1 piece of garlic naan, 1 piece of birthday cake with real homemade frosting (eggs, butter & sugar), some fruit, 2 eggrolls

    I felt pretty full today after dinner and felt that was overeating. I guess I ate more today than yesterday. Forgot vitamin D supplement and no tanning for vitamin D making today, so I do felt a bit blue.

    Rating for today: 60%. Hope for a better tomorrow.

    Day #5 -- woke up early for a conference call this morning before the alarm clock went off so it's a good start.

    B: water
    L: Vietnamese "Bun Bo Hue" = Very Spicy Beef Noodle soup, but I didn't eat much noodle comparing to usual -- mostly chomping down the meat
    S: Ok I had to give up to my mocha breve today, 8 oz. Almost not going to get it but then the big truck cut me off before I could turn to my office, so I decided to go straight to get my coffee Gotta get some stress relieve somehow somewhere. (I know I shouldn't get it).
    D: not sure yet ... but I know for sure I won't eat anything until after 9 PM tonight
    Workout schedule is planned from 6:30PM-9:00PM for some Flamenco and Modern Egyptian Dances so I should be good there.

    Weight is staying constant at 101.6 lbs and I have no craving for anything at this time nor feeling hungry during the day.
    Some breakouts seem to going away slowly and nothing new showing up

    I really like this group so far because I do like to eat real food and I have to say I'm a meat eater not a vegan. I'm Asian, so I can't have much dairy and that helped discourage me from digesting dairy products (not so good tummy ache if I have too much cheese or milk ). Gotta listen to my body -- I stop feeding my body stuff that causes me discomfort.

    Thanks for the welcomes and support!
    For Good Health and having tasty food! Cheers!
