The Primal week that was

Poppabear turns 41!
Short short post today, as it’s my birthday and I’m going to take it easy today… With KETTLEBELLS!

30 day primal challenge day 21
3 weeks in and feeling amazing!!!  Energy is through the roof!  I have spent more time in the kitchen with my wife cooking, than sitting on my arse watching tv.  Bonus!  She has even stopped twitching every time I start messing with her cooking stuff.  We are making progress.  I am really getting into this cooking thing, and having a blast with it.  My mom and dad got me a really sweet new chopping block, that I have already made good use of.
That ceramic knife is super sharp!

Lets look at the stats
Previous weight 187 lbs
Current weight 185 lbs

That’s a nice easy 2 lbs of fat burned off this week.  That’s the rate I want to stay at. Nice and safe.  Nothing drastic. My goal is around 170, I’m 5’8” so I think that’s pretty good.  To be honest I haven’t really looked at where I need to be weight wise for my size.  It’s a flexible goal as more info comes in.

Nutrition has been totally spot on… except for a few pints. (Yay)

Brought my running distance up to 3 miles (yesterday) in my Vibrams.  A few years ago I would never have thought I would be able to run 3 miles a day before my 41st birthday.  I still have not set a firm goal for my running… I’m just enjoying it!

Finally got a copy of Robb Wolf’s book, “The Paleo Solution”, and it is wonderful so far.  Robb, I really like your writing style.

I have been posting a lot on twitter lately, give me a follow @PoppabearsCave

Been a Great Week!!!!
