  • Primal Challenge Journal (Kevin J): Goals + Day 1

    Hi All,

    Have already done Primal eating, with one cheat day per week, for about a couple of months. Went from 185 to 175 quickly without all the bread. Going to take out the cheat day (Better go apologize to my favorite sushi bar ) and plan to take a picture each week to see progress.


    - Eat and Exercise Grok style to get six-pack abs in time for Caribean cruise (1 Month from today).

    o Need help choosing goals here. 10% Body fat and 50% Lean Muscle a good goal for this month? Currently 12 and 45.

    - Pickup a new sport (looking into Ultimate Frisbee league)

    - Set sleep pattern to be more like Grok’s. Early to bed, early to rise.

    So here we go:

    1: Day 1: Monday, August 3rd, 2009

    -B: Eggs with variety of green vegetables and red pepper scrambled in plus Green Tea

    -S: Small Pear, Trio Nut/Seed/Fruit bar plus Water

    -L: Large Spinach Salad w/ turkey/cucumbers/tomato/orange pepper/mushrooms/Mrs. Dash, a handful of raw almonds plus Water and sugar free gum.

    -S: Trio Nut/Seed/Fruit bar, 2 Cucumbers, Water, Gum

    -S: Two handfuls of Almonds, two apricots, ˝ cup berries, gum

    -D: Roasted Chicken/Mixed vegetables/bowl of berries and orange/carrot juice

    -S: More Roasted chicken and some berries

    2: WOD:

    -Before work:

    -At work (desk job :

    ? Hourly: Walked 5 minutes including stair

    ? Hourly: 25 Hand Grip Squeezes each hand

    -After work:

    o Art Devaney Power Law style workout – Upper

    ? Dumbbell Military Press/Lat Pull Down

    ? Dumbbell Press / Lat Pull

    ? Dips / Leg Press

    ? Incline Sit-ups with weight / Plank

    ? Dumbbell Curls

    3: Journal:

    -Wondering if I need more fat in diet to curb hunger cravings. Feel like I eat a lot.

    -Craving dark chocolate.

    -Workout had great energy then hit a wall. Workout lasted almost an hour, probably went too long. Forearms failed before main muscles failed on some exercises. Will move hand grip squeezes to non lifting days.

    -Did not get to bed until late. Took a stemulite pill before going to sleep for what it is worth.

    -Want to make the Masaman curry recipe sometime soon.
