Nothing wrong with chocolate, just make sure to get the really good stuff. 85% or higher... you will probably find that a few bites soothes the chocolate cravings much better than the bog standard chocolate and I firmly maintain that good dark chocolate is perfectly primal and very good for you
Oh yeah, rarely touch the stuff below 85% :-p
I actually think it's the crisps that I should probably address...!
Oh, and nice start to your blog
Actual Day 27
Happy Friday and Happy Pay-Day!
Probs about 30 mins fresh air today.
B - satsuma, boiled egg, coffee
Late breakfast - banana and almonds with yoghurt, 2 slices bacons and 1 sausage
L - ham and avocado salad, green tea
S - I can't lie, I had half a slice of cake at work - the only reason being it was from a very good quality bakery. Anyway.
D - courgette soup, chicken breast, cauliflower cheese and capers, gluten free chocolate slice thing
Borrowed a friend's gym membership so I didn't have to run in the rain. Oh boy have I missed being in a gym! There's something about being in that environment that makes me want to work out hard. I might have to reconsider not having a membership when I get my pay rise... I ran 2 miles in 22 mins & feel pretty tored out which doesn't bode particularly well for the half marathon! But I have faith that it will get easier. I also did some arm and leg machines, rolled around on the foam roller and did planks.

My one weekend day before the 48 hours of rehearsals and week long performances. This play is a time commitment! And I'm actually spending my day shopping for props in Camden market (if you haven't been, walking through the market on a Saturday is my idea of hell). Am hoping to drag this guy I had a date with out for lunch though to make it a bit more pleasant!
B - satsuma, two fried eggs & two slices of bacon, orange juice, coffee
S - latte, satsuma
L - some rice with chicken and vegetable curry
S - some lettuce and hummus, a sundried tomato, babybel
D - courgette soup, chicken breasts & cauli cheese with capers & some BBQ sauce
Fabulous weather today, had a good hour or so walk in the sunshine and then a 3 mile run becoming quite the foam rolling expert!

A few rum & cokes last night. Maybe a little something else that didn't help me sleep in the 2 hour window I had... So I'm off to 48 hours of technical rehearsals and I'm feeling very nauseous, I really need a slice of toast all I wish for today is that I can go home earlier than 9pm and get some rest.
Not sure if it's worth logging today...
B - boiled egg, few sips of orange juice, small cup of tea (with a spoonful of sugar soz)
It's nice to read a bit about good old England (I'm from the north, but living in China at the moment)... all those familiar comments about the weather make me feel at home!
You seem to get tripped up by the same things that I do- trying to stick to your plans while still socialising, drinking, and being kind of addicted to chocolate!
The not being too hard on yourself thing is so true- up to now I've always been too all-or-nothing, and it doesn't get me anywhere, which is why I ended up starting a journal so at least I'd be taking action and not just doing the same old thing as always.
I'm trying to ride out a chocolate craving right now...
Thanks for your comment.
I really thought writing a journal would help but I think it's the journal of someone who clearly can't follow this lifestyle properly, I'm seem to be slipping down the slope back to a standard diet. Not that I ever ate badly, but I'm letting myself get away with too much too often.
Like, it's definitely not worth noting everything I ate today, it was all crap to just keep me from falling asleep at rehearsal, so disappointed but I didn't do anything to stop it. Maybe it's because I haven't got a load of weight to lose that I haven't had the eureka moment with Primal life, but I really haven't noticed anything massive to keep me on the straight and narrow. Hmm.
I'm being a big depressed sausage right now.
it only takes a few little things going right to start gaining a bit of momentum... I remember that from last time anyway, but I'm still struggling to get started properly right now, kind of like you. as soon as you start stringing a couple of small successes together you'll start wanting to keep it going- its that not breaking the chain thing!
You're right, you just need to notice a success each day and it will hopefully push you to do more. Now I have to train for a half marathon I should see some changes in my body, and that will encourage me too. It helps not to be hormonal, monthly cycles are terrible for sticking to a routine!
