But before the story of failure, let's talk status, intake and exercise.
Yesterday morning I weighed 161.2 - Just so you know, I'm 5'10. So not bad overall, but there's too much flab and not enough tone, and my energy levels are very low.
I started my day with bacon and eggs, followed up with a spinach salad with strawberries and walnuts for lunch. Midways between lunch and dinner I managed to get a banana/strawberry/raspberry/blackberry smoothie in, and my wife (who is also doing the 30 day challenge and going Primal this year) made ginger/maple/apple pork chops for dinner. Apologies for the lack of pictures, I'll fix that in the future. Rusty's Shepard's Pie pics make his post look better than mine and I can't have that.
Here's my confession... I have been embarrassingly stagnate over the past.... 4 months or so. No sense in placing any blame, it is what it is, and I'm a lazy out of shape slob. That said, I did two sets of 25 crunches and one set of 25 push-ups yesterday. I'll be ramping that up as I start feeling better.
Ok, I promised a fail - and that would be with Primal Challenge #6 Get Adequate Sleep. It's my weakest category anyway, but mix in a collicky 3 week old, and a large amount of work I needed to finish up before my Belgian team members get into the office at 3am, and the fail becomes epic.
Long boring story short, I managed to pass out in front of my computer at some time after 4am. My wife woke me up around 5:30 and I slept until it was time to wake up for my 7am meeting.
You can imagine how my day is going... I did, however, weigh in at 159.4 this morning and made a breakfast of Almonds and a banana. Lunch will be leftovers from that pork dish and dinner is still up in the air.
More to come - GROK ON!
