    prima journal--Ravenoak

    Primal Fuel
    I have done a few diets in my life like Abs Diet and Atkins. I found on diets with grains I would just eat them like crazy and go nuts. With Atkins I always wondered about why fruit was not allowed in the beginning. Anway I found Marks/ Site nd bought his book a few weeks ago. I like what it says and find that it matches how I feel about eating.

    Current schedule Work 9 hours day. Online College: deVry--bachelors in Information Systems takes about another 1 to 3 hours a day.

    Current stats:

    Age: 44

    Height: 5' 11"

    Weight 180.4 lbs. Fat %: 19.7--From body weight scale

    Exercise: Walk 4 times a week with wife. 20 to 30 minutes



    Current Goals

    Weight around 165. Fat% 10

    Exercise--lift 3 times wekk and walk the same with a longer one on the weekend. Play

    Day 3:

    Today has been a overly stressed dietry nightmare. forgot my lunch so been trying to survive off machines ta work. Instead I went and did a whole carbe laden packaged food like potato chips and a candybar. Should have just fasted. Anyway i do know I feel worse then yesterday from the carb roller coaster. This is a lesson for me to have primal snacks in desk and locker. That way if I forget something at least I will have something good to eat. Anyway here is to moving on to the future and not letting this deter me from my journey.
