  • My first day!

    Today is the first day of my primal life. For now it went pretty good.

    Breakfast: Eggs with collard greens, avocado, kale.

    Lunch: Various nuts and black tea

    Early dinner: Salmon and salad with pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

    Late snack: Apple and cashew nuts.

    I walked around the neighborhood for 45 minutes, went to the gym and walked more and did some light strength exercises (as far as I remembered from what I've read), some knee push ups, planks and some stretching. I think what I did was a little too light for me. But I felt good.

    Good night,

    Welcome. I hope you do really well on the challenge.

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

        I started my second day with the strengthening exercises, I could only finish one cycle and I couldn't do the pull ups. After that I had a good primal breakfast.

          The second day menu:
          B: eggs, mushrooms, potato, turkey bacon, avocado, kale, black tea
          L: chicken, spinach and broccoli
          D: I was still full, we went to a Thai restaurant for dinner, I could only eat the appetizers, one skew chicken and 2 shrimps but I drank two cocktails which were pretty high in sugar.

            Don't forget about the progressions in the Primal Blueprint Fitness e-book.

                Third day menu:

                B: None (waited until noon to eat)
                L: Baked chicken, cauliflower, onions, potato, garlic casserole.
                Snack: 1 Apple and cashew nuts
                D: Guacamole and skirt stake in a Mexican restaurant.

                Mexican restaurant was really challenging and it was difficult to resist to chips, beans and rice were everywhere but we did it. My husband and I, we did not eat a single non-primal food. (but I should say I was still a little hungry when we left )

                As exercise we walked around the park in the neighborhood for about 50mins.

                It was a nice day!

                      Five days in and now you're doing pictures? Fancy!

                      Yeah, I think you'll fit in well here on the forums. And, you'll stick to Primal pretty easily.

                      Keep it up!
