usually i post silly/cute/funny things here, but i’m gonna take a little break from the 24 hour hilarity i usually provide to get serious for a second.
so, i’m doing this thing.
i hesitate to call it a diet, because it’s sort of a whole lifestyle thingie. but, because there is a diet component, we could call it a diet, i guess.
it’s based on a book, called ‘the primal blueprint’, written by a motherfucking p.i.m.p. named mark sission. here’s his website, where you can buy the book and get more info about it, if you’re so inclined: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/
the reason i bring it up is because i am VERY enthusiastic about it. it’s almost the only thing i want to talk about. i assume this is what it’s like being a born-again christian, because i am finding it very challenging not to proselytize all the time.
HAVE YOU HEARD THE GOOD WORD ABOUT THIS AMAZING THING THAT IS AMAZING? CAN I TELL YOU ABOUT IT? BECAUSE IT IS AMAZING. - what my brain says all day long
i’m not going to get into explaining it, because the website and book do that much better than i ever could, but i will say that i feel freaking amazing. seriously, i can’t remember a time when i’ve ever felt so good.
because of the diet component, i am eating totally different than i ever have, and having no trouble at all managing it, despite living in a hotel and having no access to a kitchen to make my own food. also, because of the fitness component, i’ve been going on epic dog walks, and did some strength training yesterday for the first time in forevs. nothing super fancy, just using my own bodyweight. i’m trying out a system called simplefit. here’s the url to that, if you’re interested: http://www.simplefit.org/
again, i don’t want to preach about it excessively, because i know that people aren’t as interested in this stuff and one always feels they should be, but i just wanted to say it’s fucking amazing, i’m feeling awesome, i’m losing weight in an easy, low stress way, and i highly recommend it to anyone who is interested.
i’m MORE than happy to answer any questions you have about my own experience, but again, the website and the book are really the best source for science and facts about it.
i will probably be posting stuff about it here, so i thought it’s give you guys a little heads up.
also, i started a fitness journal in the forum on the site, to help me keep track of my food and diet stuff. i would write it all down here, but i feel a little weird obsessing about my body image crap on here, and at least there, everyone is SUPER enthusiastic about the lifestyle and me talking at length about my diet and workout stuff won’t bore the pants off of them. if you’re interested in following along, you’re welcome to.
i’m not super familiar with the way their forum functions, but i think that will get you there.
okay, back to pictures of fennec foxes and stuff.
