I need to do this - primal eating & heavy lifting.
I've been assing about since Xmas with my diet - pushing myself past the point were I start gaining, get back on track then give it all up again & feel like I've failed spectacularly.
If I'd spent the same amount of time I've spent sitting on my ass reading about diets actually doing some basic food prep, exercise and playing I wouldn't still be overweight. I've bought the primal blueprint, I've bought the Well Fed cookbook - they are awesome, what they say is pretty much how I feel about food, exercise, life etc - I just have to put it into bloody practise consistently and pish to whatever anyone else is doing.
Full bloodied paleo isn't for me - there will be the odd indulgence, plus some cream and butter - as I'm cooking for the kids as well & we are going to eat pretty much the same. The odd Sunday I'll have a pancake with rice flour or similar and not beat myself up about it. There'll be alcohol at times (if I stick to vodka it's almost a potato refeed ;))
Even if I don't loose weight at first, I wont panic. Going to measure and weigh tomorrow then check again April 1st - seems an apt day to choose.
Kettlebells 3 times per week for half an hour. Swim twice a week for an hour. Walk with kids twice a week. Sunday jog.
I really want to push myself with the kettlebells & see some improvement.
Today - Meal 1 - 2 bacon, mushrooms, black pudding, tomato, 1 sausage. Meal 2 - banana and tea. Meal 3 - turkey and loads of veg stew.
3 tea (1 with semi skim milk) and water. Small glass red wine.
Omega 3.6,9 supplement & magnesium citrate. Strepsils and cough syrup for cold.
Kettlebells - 10kg for swings, squats, halo, circles and arm posts - 8kg for arm reaches and a new arm move but weight too heavy for that.
