Everyday, I tell myself that I'm going primal. Every night, I tell myself that I'm going to give it another try. It's quite sad. To make myself feel better, I tell myself that I'm making small progress each day. For example, I can't remember the last time I've had a red velvet cupcake. I'm also better at making sure I have a fruit and veggie at every meal. The photo above is what I've been eating for dinner these past few days (plus a piece of fruit). On the right is a salad with cilantro dressing from Trader Joe's. On the left is korean BBQ beef, roasted mushrooms, and garlic Japanese yams. (Yes. I made it myself.) In order for me to go primal (or semi primal), I need to take baby steps. My current focus is a fruit and veggie at every meal and I'm trying to cut the rice and bread. When I conquer that, I'll move on to my next primal goals.

Row 1000 meters
Prep for the WOD

CrossFit One World WOD
Snatch 3/3/3/3/3

Joanne's Final Weight - 35/40/45/50/55/60 plus three failed single attempts at 65#

Notes (to myself) about this workout: We basically did a snatch clinic. BIG THANKS to Eric G. for helping us (Lori, Bobbi, and I) for running is through the WOD. The snatch is a weird lift and it's my least favorite one because I always forget the technique. We decided that next Thursday on our rest day we would work on the snatch again.

I like lifting days. I wish I went to more of them. Also, I can't wati until my shoes come in. They're supposed to be in soon!

recipe for the korean bbq beef please! hugs and good luck on the baby steps -- you're doing great and way ahead of me, although this morning i didn't have any grains with my breakfast sausage and eggs, woohoo!

Thanks Gladys. As for the Korean BBQ, no recipe to give up. I just go to the nearest Asian grocery store (you know, the one around the corner) and pick up a bottle of marinade from there. I find that when it comes to those marinades, less is more. A bottle of marinade will last a while. Oh, and make sure it's Korean, with Korean writing, and a brand that you don't normally hear about. That's how you know it's good. ha ha!
