    This is absolutely true.

    Firstly, I didn't go primal all at once and I'm still making little changes and (I hope) improvements.

    Secondly, I haven't always been consistent. This past winter was a real slog with many multi-week bouts of missed workouts (and the guilt and self-abuse that goes along with that).

    Both of these factors would result in short term failure, but over the long term, their effects are diminished.

    Mark has a post or two that mention that calories and nutrition shouldn't be evaluated daily. Rather, weekly and monthly nutrition trends are what really count. This idea removes a great deal of pressure from the work of improving one's diet.

    Mark's book also says to not be rigid in regiment or results obsessed. It's about the journey and the long haul.

    Cheapo, you set a very good example. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheapo: How do you get abs like that? I do my own version of Crossfit Cindy I call Sindy: 5 Pullups, 10 Pushups, 15 Squats and 10 Situps for 20 Minutes. Can do 11 rounds of it. Thanks.

    My only workouts are SimpleFit and 2 hockey games per week. They work the abs (and everything else). Eating well reveals them.

    I tried level 1/day 1 and loved it! I've never been into lifting free weights and have always gravitated towards body weight exercises. I plan to add in my weight vest on day 2, to build some more strength. Overall, I love the simplicity and the challenge these workouts offer. Thanks for this post cheapo.

    Thanks for posting this. I really need to start working out more and this is something I could see myself getting into pretty easily. I grab the pullup bar intermittently during the week, but having a program to follow will help a lot.

    Congrats on the progress so far, too. Looking good man, keep it up!

    Damn dude. I'm convinced that'll work. LOL.

    Cheapo - how many day a week? I may have missed it in your thread. Sorry if redundant. I looked at the link you posted; the way it is worded there suggests that you do EACH group of exercises 3 times a week meaning that there are some days you complete two "days" in one day?

    Thanks!
