Meet Mark

Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...

Primal Reflection: Make a Transition Plan

By Mark Sisson

Inline_Live-Awesome-645x445-03Having turned the calendar to February, it’s a good time to take stock. How did January go—and what do you want February to look like? What successful changes are you bringing away from the first month of 2018? More energy? A renewed optimism about your health? A new waist measurement? A more impressive mile time or VO2 max? A heftier deadlift max? Better sleep? Better confidence?

I hope you’ll share your successes (and your stumbling blocks) along the way. What worked for you? What didn’t? Did you follow the Action Items? What was most instrumental in the successes you experienced? And how will you carry it all over into this month? What will you do differently? What new supports will help you move through this next phase? No matter how dramatic or mixed the results, there’s so much to be gained from revisiting the overall venture. Reflection is an essential part of the process.

  1. So far 2018 has brought some small successes I am hopeful will lead to big improvements and continual good health in the future. I have made a goal to get at least 7 hours of sleep a night and I have been overall successful on this and this has led to feeling great and increased productivity in my personal and business life. I have also cut down my workout volume and have noticed I am recovering (and sleeping) much better and have not lost an ounce of muscle or performance. By sleeping more and cutting back on volume and intensity of workouts I have managed to stay healthy without even a sniffle despite working in a large medical center full of people with influenza A and various other viral illnesses. I fully attribute this to the improved sleep and cutting back on working out which has allowed my immune system to stay charged.

  2. January was quick hectic. By February everything seemed to be more aligned. I am looking forward to a healthy start thus far. Feeling good and ready to rock and roll.

  3. My start has been good. Great, if you take in the fact that my kids didn’t even bat an eyelash when I told them no more processed junk. I’ve got alarms on my phone to remind me to move (I would sit and read ALL day, everyday, if I could). My daily supps include dessicated liver pills and cod liver oil. I feel fantastic! Nothing for PMS, no 2pm crash. My mood is so steady and elevated!! Lovin’ 2018 ?

  4. The biggest change for me in January was giving up some TV time in exchange for reading (about an hour a night). I’ve tried focusing on something that will better me and it’s helped a bunch. I’ve discovered some new Primal recipes, learned more about nutrition and exercise and am now beginning a biography on Henry Ford.
