Donzy's healthy for life diary
As you've all probably noticed I've been lurking for a while now so I thought it was time to introduce myself properly.
My name is Donna and I'm nearly 29. I'm married with two girls coming up 5 and 2. We live in East Yorkshire.
I've never been "fat" (hate that word) but been chubby my whole life and am very pear shaped at my smallest I was a 10 on top and a 14 on bottom.
The main reason I'm going primal is that I'm mainly happy where I'm at weight wise, well I'd love to be a bit slimmer but I'm not willing to starve myself to get there. And also I realised the more I dieted the more junk I ate... Low fat this and rubbish that I calorie counted... Why have an apple when a small chocolate bar has the same calories.... Why have a proper dinner when I could have a share bag of minstrels....
I started Atkins at the beginning of the year after reading the article "the men who made us fat" and started looking into low carb, the more research I've done on low carb the more I'm realising its not the "carbs" it's the type of carbs, so here I am.
My hubbie is doing it with me but he's sometimes adding carbs, I'm also gradually getting my kids eating to, I'm going to do this slowly one meal at a time rather than throwing them in the deep end.
I'm more primal than paleo at the minute but that might gradually change as don't eat too much dairy at the minute but don't want to tell myself I'm not allowed it.
Exercise wise, I kettleworx at least 3 times a week, I'm getting my fitbit next week so intend to get my walking up to at least 10k and as for the sprinting once in a while think I'm going to work up to that one as scared of looking like an idiot
Anyway I've waffled for long enough, so please subscribe and keep me on the primal way xxx
