I just looked at my breakfast and lunch and realized they were vegetarian meals. At breakfast I didn't feel like I needed eggs or meat so I didn't have any. After researching the coconut yogurt, I probably shouldn't have it because it's not really a pure food. It has lots of things I can't pronounce and it does have cane sugar. I never had a salad at breakfast until I went to this restaurant in Miami that served it for this meal. It really is a nice addition.
Even at lunch I felt like no meat. One of my fellow primal eaters said that it's not about the meat. (Thanks, Mendy.) It's about keeping the insulin levels healthy. I like that way of thinking. There are definitely times when meat just doesn't sound good. However it seems that every time I don't have meat or eggs for a meal, I get hungry in between meals.
By the time I got to dinner, I wasn't super hungry at all so I ate fairly lightly.
I have to admit I didn't exercise today. This is extremely rare for me. I could give excuses, but that's all they are is excuses. I've been told I exercise too much so following the Primal Blueprint exercise plan will be interesting. Look how crazy healthy Mark and his wife look.
In a nutshell, this is what Mark says:
1. Move frequently at a slow pace for 2-5 hours a week at 55-75% max heart rate. Walking, hiking, easy cardio
2. Lift heavy things 2-3 times a week for 7-60 minutes a week
3. Sprint or do something all out once every 7-10 days for less than 10 minutes
For me, this sounds way easy. I love to walk and don't even normally count that as exercise. It will be interesting to see how my body adapts to not workout so intensely.
Time to go "lift heavy things."
