The Primal week that was

1-17-11 to 1-23-11

Today marks the end of the first week of  Poppabear going primal.  I’ve made a lot of mistakes, and learned a lot of valuable lessons this week.  But first, lets go to the stats!

Starting weight: 192 pounds
Ending weight: 187 pounds.

5 Pounds for the week!

Now I realize that most of this is probably just from stopping soda, chips and other assorted crap, that I’ve been putting into my body.  I’m sure it will even out to around 2 or so pounds per week.

Other effects:
My energy has gone through the roof!  I am ready to GO GO GO!  That means this coming week I can up my physical activity by way of more running, and weight training.

My mental clarity and focus has improved drastically.  I am more clearheaded at work, and ready to face the challenges head on there.  My accuracy has ramped up, as well as my attention to details.

This week I have also spent a ton of time in the kitchen.  In fact I have taken over most of the cooking for the week.  Which is good, as Jenn has been having a tough time with the flu the past few weeks.  I have learned more about cooking this week than I have my entire 40 years on this planet.  Most important thing I’ve learned, is that I LOVE cooking!  If you are going to embrace any type of nutritional change you have GOT to take charge of your own meal preparations!

I have taken the leap into barefoot running and ordered my first pair of Vibram 5 fingers today.  I will print a review along with my step by step start of running with them.

Much of my strength training will revolve around my friend Rasputin.  He is an angry angry chunk of iron.

All in all, a very productive week!
