Day 3 – March 4, 2013

Stayed up later than I should working on freelance stuff and thus felt like the Monday Pinterest workout which involves something like 40,000 jumping jacks and 50,000 russian twists was a bit ambitious.

I decided to do this instead:


It wasn’t as hard as that Monday would have been but it still felt good.

Day 2 – March 3, 2013

Started out with an awesome brunch.


20 minute rollerblade warm up in the late afternoon – little chilly but felt so good to be outside!
Followed that with 2 reps of the “Sunday” workout – See Mods below.

It begins!

So, this is the plan:

30 days starting tomorrow of clean eating, tracking of that eating, at least 30 minutes of moving everyday (sometimes more), no scale checking, getting good sleep and generally moderating those things that need to be moderated. It’s based on the below (30 days instead of 21):

Primal Challenge

Caloric tracking will be integral to figuring out what works for me in regards to weight loss but I am basing it on this:

  1. Keeping carbs under 100 grams per day (see image below)
  2. Making sure to get at least 75 grams of protein per day (based on 0.8g per kg of body weight to maintain muscle mass)
  3. Fulfilling the remainder of my caloric needs with healthy fats

According to my tracking app, LoseIt, my daily calorie budget is 1613.
