Week 5 of Primal/Paleo

This week brought me to the realization that I need to exercise. I’m losing weight, just not gaining any definition. I did an hour of yoga today and that was scary! Imagine being in downward dog and seeing all that flabby skin/fat mushed around in a strange configuration. Yeah, what an eye-opener! (Glad the hubby wasn’t here to see that!)

I was thinking about CrossFit. I found a CrossFit class in Fraser. (only 2 miles from our house) It’s called CrossFit Thin Air! Go figure. Like I don’t have enough trouble breathing here! LOL! I’m also working on getting a job. I guess I got bored, sitting around, doing laundry, cooking excellent Paleo meals and not much else. Hopefully, after all this testing, I can get a job as a 911 operator/dispatcher again. I have the knack for that job and it’s not stressful for me. Call me cold-hearted, but I don’t let it bother me. I don’t take it home with me and I don’t let it get me down. Wish me luck! I could use the extra $$$$ for grass-fed beef!

Here’s week 5 weights & measures!

Surprise, surprise….no CHANGE!

I think it’s time for me to exercise 🙂

  1. Even just walking will amp up your progress! Go for power walks if you can’t hit the gym. Einstein said “nothing happens until something moves”. You got this girl!

  2. I love reading about your progress!

    Modern hunter-gatherers tend to run a lot…might that be an option for you? I started running about 4 years ago (at age 46). It took a while to gain some proficiency, but I really love it!

  3. Exercise will make a HUGE difference. Like saraeye said, walking makes a huge difference. I’ve lost about 40 lbs just by walking and watching what I’m eating. The weight loss and inch loss goes much slower and I don’t have as much energy when I’m not walking. When I do, it amps up. I can’t wait until I’ve lost enough that I can do other kinds of exercise, too. Right now, I’m so heavy that other things hurt my joints too much to do them (other than swimming, and I don’t have access to a pool). Walking is free and very very good for you. Plus, it’s fun!
