Primal Day 9

Ran across a very interesting article in the Wall Street Journal today, about the effects that gut health has on the rest of the body, and most interestingly, the mind.  Read it here.  Really makes you think twice about the food you put into your body.  Processed, sugary foods may not just make you fat, […]

Primal Day 8

We spent the night at Mom & Dad’s last night, so I didn’t make my usual breakfast of eggs and sautéed veggies.  Instead I had a slice of Mom’s spinach quiche.  It was very rich (made with spinach, onions, eggs, cream and lots o’ cheese), but very tasty.  It did have a crust on it, […]

Primal Day 5

Heather Fail.  I didn’t make a post last night.  The evening just kind of got away from me, all sneaky like.  Next thing I know, Tim’s falling asleep while watching Star Trek TNG, and it’s time to hit the sack. Breakfast was the usual.  I got kind of lazy and didn’t want to dirty a […]

Primal Day 4

See now, doesn’t that look delicious?! It was delicious.  I couldn’t eat it all, though.  I think that eating primally has made my stomach smaller, which is yet another good thing I’ve experienced on this ‘”diet” in the four days I’ve been on it. For lunch today, I had to get creative, as I went […]

Primal Day 3

Today overall was good.  Had another omelette for breakfast and a big-ass salad for lunch.  I got snacky this afternoon and discovered a delicious treat – celery with macademia nuts.  Take a bite of celery, a piece of macademia, and chew together.  Delicious.  I also had wwwwaaayyyy too many pumpkin seeds.  They were so salty […]

Primal Day 2

As promised, I will not bore you with pictures and extensive details of everything I ate today.  Here are the quick highlights. I didn’t weigh myself this morning.  See,  I didn’t take a shower this morning, and I only weigh myself before I’ve eaten anything and when I’m nekked.  I don’t want clothing to tip […]

Primal Day 1

I started out the day in a depressing fashion, by taking my weights and measures.  Ugh.  My weekend of debauchery (aka eating pizza and pasta and drinking beer) definitely took its toll.  I weighed in this morning at 149.3, which is higher than I have been in at least a year.  I’m hoping it was […]

Primal!

Starting Monday I am doing the 21-Day Primal Challenge.  Basically that means no grains, legumes,  peas, corn, or beer.  I’ll be eating mostly grass-fed meat and organic veggies, with some nuts, seeds, and fruits to fill out the day.  I’ll be doing pull-ups, planks, squats, and push-ups plus non-chronic cardio.  For 21 days. Why am […]

4.5 Day Weekend

Ah, weekends.  Long weekends.  They are the best.  I took off last Thursday at 11:30 and didn’t return until this morning.  We toyed with the idea of going somewhere and doing something with the extended time off, but we ended up staying pretty close to home and just chilling. We went to Iowa City on […]
