    Talking Primal Journal (BisonWoman)

    Day 1: Primal Food Intake Today:

    B: Coffee w/cream, Primal Fuel w/Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

    S: Advocare Spark w/Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

    L: 3 deviled eggs & ham

    D: Chicken wings with hot sauce & butter, slaw w/red & white cabbage, radishes, onions, & mayo, zipper peas

    Exercise routine

    WOD: Walked 4 times today for a total of 3.12 miles.

    I started the Primal 21 Day Transformation last year and did very well. However, I did not stick with it--a common problem for me. I've started again today with the hope that I can perservere more than 3 days!

    Day 2: Primal Food Intake Today:

    B: Coffee w/cream, Primal Fuel w/Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

    S: Advocare Spark w/Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

    L: 3 deviled eggs & ham

    D: Pork roast with garlic, slaw w/red & white cabbage, radishes, onions, & mayo

    Exercise routine

    WOD: Walked 2 times today for a total of 1.86 miles.

    My big success today is that I didn't eat the pork on a bun, and I didn't eat potato chips with it. All potato chips are now out of the house!

    Day 4: Primal Food Intake Today:

    B: Coffee w/cream

    S: 2 Brazil nuts

    L: Meat & cheese from the inside of a sandwich; 2 or 3 bites of leftovers from last night when I got back to my office

    D: Meatloaf, roasted Brussels sprouts & onions

    Exercise routine

    WOD: None today.

    My big success for today was not eating all the carby garbage they served up at the conference I attended. There were donuts--hundreds of donuts--for breakfast. For lunch I was faced with sandwiches on 2 inch thick bread, pasta salad, potato salad, fruit covered with something, and cookies. I ate the meat & cheese from the sandwiches and threw the bread away. Oh, and I got two sandwiches since I didn't get anything else. I was so happy to have meatloaf & roasted Brussels sprouts & onions for supper!

    Day 5: Primal Food Intake Today:

    B: Coffee w/cream, Primal Fuel w/Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar; leftover chicken & capers

    S: None

    L: Grilled chicken breast & salad

    D: BGE grilled salmon on wood plank, cabbage sautéed in bacon grease, & steamed broccoli with butter

    Exercise routine

    WOD: Walked 1 time today for a total of 1.25 miles. Didn't do the PEM. Today was a most beautiful day in Alabama after lots of cold, rain, and gloom. Therefore, I took advantage and walked.

    I ate more today than before as an experiment. We'll see what the scales say tomorrow.

    B: Coffee w/cream

    D: BGE grilled shrimp, roasted Brussels sprouts/onions, Spring mix salad with cherry tomatoes, radishes, onions, olive oil & balsamic vinegar

    WOD: Walked a local cemetery tour. Very interesting & something I wouldn't have done before.

    Even after all that food yesterday, I lost another pound. Yay!

    Day 7: Primal Food Intake Today:

    B: Coffee w/cream; bacon & eggs

    S: None

    L: Restaurant buffet--BBQ, 1 fried chicken leg, green beans, 2 bites of potatoes, salad

    D: BGE grilled hamburger w/homemade pimento cheese melted on it, sautéed onions & peppers, sauteed cabbage

    Exercise routine

    WOD: Wanted to hike, but it didn't happen. Played Frisbee with the fam for a little while.

    I was very frustrated with the buffet thing. I found out that I never want to do that again unless there are awesome lowcarb options on it. It's like taking an alcoholic to a bar, lining up the drinks, and making them walk past them to the unsweet tea at the end.

    Day 8: Primal Food Intake Today:

    B: Coffee w/cream; Primal Fuel

    S: Spark

    L: Leftover BGE salmon; broccoli

    D: Chicken Wing night! + slaw & hot sauce--Every Monday night is the same at our house

    Exercise routine

    WOD: Limited walking due to my knee hurting.

    On the 21 day instructions today it says to go barefoot. That's not a problem since I do that most of the time anyway. Also, I was to try to eat nothing packaged, and I was successful with that. Most days we cook at home, and many days I take leftovers for lunch, so I fulfill that on lots of days.

    I'm really happy I've made it 8 days with the only hiccup being the buffet yesterday. I haven't had a potato chip in my mouth in 8 whole days! I can't tell you what a big deal that is. I know it's dumb, but they are my downfall & I don't know why. Anybody here have a clue?
