biancadonk Posted December 31, 2013 Share Posted December 31, 2013 My husband and I were doing pretty well on a Primal diet for the first half of 2013 and we were both doing great with exercise, going to our local CrossFit box 3x a week. Then we went on a trip to CA in August, and both got off track with eating and my husband injured his wrist pretty badly. Since August, we've been trying to get back on track but things have just gotten worse and worse. That brings us to early December. I knew it would be really hard for us to start the W30 plan in Dec., what with the holidays and both our kids' birthdays falling one after another. So here we are on New Years Eve and I'm DETERMINED to get back in a healthier groove. Neither of us is significantly overweight, though I would definitely like to lose 10 - 15 lbs. of fat and replace with muscle. I know that I probably won't reach this goal in one W30, but I'm hoping that if I get my sweet tooth under control, I can start to move towards it. My plan...breakfast will usually be either fried eggs or an omelette with peppers and spinach. My weakness overall with the paleo/primal thing has always been trying to fill up on meat and not getting enough veggies, so that will be a big focus for me this time around. Lunch will ideally be leftovers from dinner, some quick sausage, or a big salad with tuna or hard-boiled eggs. Planning to experiment with making my own mayo, since that's key in tuna salad and hey, I do have that awesome Vitamix! Dinner has been really tough for the past few months. I have two young kids, and by the time they're in bed asleep, it's usually 8:30 and I'm exhausted and cooking is not something I'm in the mood to do. The husband and I talked through some strategies to make that go more smoothly, though, so hopefully it'll all go well. The plan is pretty simple...some form of beef, lamb, pork, or chicken and lots of veggies (ideally in season). So there you have it. I'm nervous about craving sweets for the first week or two, but I know from experience how that gets easier after a while. I just hope I can make it through the 30 days on the first try. Bianca S.
