- Please visit here to see why I'm challenging myself to live as a modern cavewoman for 21 days -


Hardest part: removing the chocolate peanut butter by Nuts N More

Best part: having lovely clean shelves?

Comments: a lot of the stuff I got rid of I did so by eating it over the last couple of weeks. As a result I became bored of peanut butter, noodles and rice puffs etc and so I'm not feeling sad about giving it up. Yet(!)


Primal shopping resources: The Honey Tree, Muscle Food

Comments: I've often relied on Morrisons for grocery shopping and I'm worried I'm going to spend half my day chasing ingredients around Newcastle.


Ways to increase daily movement over the long term:
  1. don't use the lifts at work;
  2. go for walks after dinner;
  3. arrange trips at the weekends to the coast or countryside to explore.

Today's movement endeavours:
  1. Jawbone UP says I walked 14,552 step, which is 6.3 miles.
  2. I did a 'coredio' session for 36 minutes, burning 317 calories.

Items acquired today: I bought this stuff! 
CommentsCan't wait to try the frank scrub. The coconut oil is for oil pulling, moisturising and removing eye make-up.


Daily energy levels 1-10: 6 (yawned all the way through the afternoon)

Hunger level between meals 1-10: 7

Satisfaction level with meals 1-10: 6

Struggles today with Primal effortsI found that all morning I kept worrying about whether I was going to find anything to supplement my lunch: "where can I find somewhere selling freshly cooked free range chicken...minus, bread/sauce/pasta". It also felt strange not having dessert after dinner.

Benefits today from Primal efforts: I ate really healthily. I mean, check out this mackerel salad..!
Daily highlight(s): being complimented by my new boss at work and having this for breakfast.
Daily needs to improve: be more prepared for lunch - broccoli, butternut squash, parsley and berries are a snack, let's face it.

Success score (1-10): 9
