So, I was really happy with the results of my first primal challenge. I do good with 'competition' even if it is just with myself. So, I am doing another one :)
Last time I lost 6.6 pounds of fat. I am hoping to repeat that loss, or even do better. Last time I lost 1.4 of lean mass, which could be muscle, water, glycogen or bone. My guess is water, but you can never be sure.
So on 30 September I will start. I picked that day because I don't like starting things in the first of the month, yeah I know I am a little silly like that. I also will have Squadron PT, so I will be at the base gym, there is a good quality scale with a body fat percentage calculator, the BF% has been pretty similar to what I get with measurements. I like it because it is easier to track, it spits out a paper with all my stats on it :)
I am adding a running portion. I will do a practice 1.5 mile either Thursday or this weekend. My goal will be to take 25-45 seconds off my time. I will work on this goal by doing HIIT and endurance cardio 1-2 times a week using the elliptical.
So I will make easier to achieve goals. And will work on blogging it at least every other day.
I am not sure what my daily/weekly goals will be but some ideas:
in bed by 11 (so hard for me)
elliptical for 30 minutes 2 times per week
tabata 2 times a week
lift heavy things 2 times per week (full body)
track 'cheats'- I have decided tracking everything is too tedious. I might do a full track one week day and one weekend day. But, I NEED to keep track of my treats to make sure I am staying in my 90% primal mind set.
My overall goal is to improve my BF% and build muscle :)
I wonder what is a reasonable goal for my biceps measurement if I start at 11 inches? 11.5? 12?
So, who wants to join me? Even just one person gives me someone to 'compete' with :)
