Check in Time

Ok well its been a HECTIC month but its coming to an end thankfully. Big event of this last month is I will be graduation with my Masters in Instructional Technology this Friday so I am a happy camper *grin*.

On topic however. I have not been able to work out much the last 3 or so weeks what with Embers birthday, the in laws visiting and just other stuff going on. I weighed in this morning and the weight is 236 lbs which is a drop of 4 lbs. Hopefully its a drop of fat and not of any muscles I had.

Goals for the next month
  • minimize sugar - we are doing a 21 day sugar fast to try squeeze sugar out
  • get to the Gym more. I must must must do this.
  • Relax!!!!! ohhhhh yeah
Ok just a short post. Laters guys.

Embers Birthday.

Take a first birthday party. Add cake and pizza and you have a primal disaster waiting to happen.

It was our daughters first birthday and we had a scheduled bad day. I went in knowing it would be bad and came out being bad and having the upset stomach to show for it. The day after and I am happily back on primal and trying to get my stomach to be happy with me.

I think that it should not upset my primal lifestyle and that the stats will continue to change. Now that the birthday is over I think I can get back to the gym (not working on the house ). I guess I will find out in about 2 weeks hey just in time for college stress to be ending.

Talk to you soon.

Getting back

I have not posted quite as much as I wanted this month, guess life took precedence *LOL*. Its another 30 day block over and done with and the one stat that we check at the end of each block i that of weight. Yeah I know its not a true indicator of how well things are going but when you are obese its something you can look at and see that some ground is being made.

Weighed in on Saturday and the scale reported 240 lbs so that's a loss of 9 lbs for the month. I am again happy with this as it is not too drastic of a weight loss for the period (only 1-2 lbs a week). I am hoping that I can continue to go to the gym and continue to eat as primally as I do. I will say that the eating part has not been bad and the working out has actually been fun although I missed most of last week due to "stuff".

I still think I have problems with my eating though as I think I am still not eating enough or drinking enough water. To top this off I got my vitals checked and while BP was a LOT better than it has been in a long time (it was 126 / 90 WOOT) and my triglycerides were way down I have elevated LDL and cholesterol. For now I am having to make some changes to my red meat consumption (reduce it and meat more fish and chicken) but I have elected to avoid all drug use to combat it until I can let the primal lifestyle do its work and hopefully equalize my stats. My hope is that one year from now I will be able to report lower weight and better all round stats.

Enough for now. Laters S.
