Travelling Cavegirl!

Today is Sunday, May 6th. So, this week, I leave for Texas...traveling for work. I'll be back Sunday, May 13th only to leave again Monday May 14th for Charleston, SC. So...what is in my arsenal to make this a successful travel trip?

1st: I am bringing my INSANITY workout and laptop!
2nd: Bringing healthy snacks...sugar free apple sauce; freeze dried, sulfate free fruit; nuts; 100% chocolate; and I haven't gotten it yet, but will be getting some wheat-free beef Jerky!
3rd: Intermittent fasting the entire time I am there. (6 hour window).
4th: Plenty of walks
5th: All meals will be meat and veggie based; easy in Texas since they have plenty of grilled options.

My favorite happy accident at the airport is always when I run into a Jamba Juice and get pure carrot juice! Fingers crossed!

Insanity is going great. I am pretty sore, as in itishardtowalk sore. But, I really feel like I am challenging myself physically. Pics to come soon!

3 months Primal!

So, I started a Primal Lifestyle on February 1, 2012. Today is the 3 month point and I have never felt better. I wanted to create a place where I can cronicle my recipes & thoughts about the lifestyle. I am also on day 2 of INSANITY!!! What a crazy hard workout!

The Primal or Paleo lifestyle is eating NO processed foods, no grains, no wheat, and no dairy! Pretty much sticking to Meat, Fruit, Veggies, and some nuts.

I have to recommend Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint as a guidebook if you want to try a holistic healthy lifestyle. In addition to eating pure, clean foods, Mark talks about exercising and getting the right amount of sleep. And that you need to try your best, striving to eat primally 80% of the time.
