170 lbs for over a month!

So, I have not had a lot to say because nothing is changed. That is exactly what I want to talk about today. I have leveled out with my weight through work outs and diet. So, a normal day for me starts at 6 a.m. I go down to get a cup of coffee, then head to the basement for a workout. In my basement I have a universal machine, a bench, some dumbbells, a pull up bar, a treadmill and a heavy bag. This is a luxury, meaning I could and have done with less. I do Arms Monday, Chest Tuesday, Back Wednesday, Legs Thursday and a run Friday. If I miss a day for something I skip the run. Runs, bike rides, hikes etc are also done randomly in the evenings and weekends. I am only concerned with the morning base work out as a routine. Everything else is just letting life dictate. Currently, I do 2 sets of each routine. For example; 2 X 12 Curls, then 2 x 12 Pull Ups etc. as time permits. I also do sit ups and stretches as time permits. Personally, I record nothing. When I am done I take a shower and get dressed. NO Breakfast. I eat Breakfast about twice a week as life dictates, but never planned. I eat a big lunch every day and a small dinner. For lunch I go out to Primal friendly restaurants and/or pick at my plate to avoid the grains etc. I do not get hungry at all because I do not start on the Insulin roller coaster early in the morning, I eat a big lunch and rarely want dinner, but I do eat it for two reasons. I cook for the family and we will sit down as one and I know I will not eat until noon the next day. I do not worry about any consumption after dinner, meaning dessert of any kind or the CW rule of "No Eating After 8". So, what I am saying here is "It gets easier once it is a routine". I no longer desire bread or any of the crap I used to eat. I would say it took a year to make it a routine and now I just tweak it as I read something new. I highly recommend you fast one way or another. At first, when i started losing weight everyone asks what diet I was on and when I told them what I do the were hesitant. Now they see I have not gained any of the 30 lbs I lost and they are ready to reconsider.

  1. What restaurants in the Ann Arbor area do you consider friendly to the paleo/primal/ancestral lifestyle?
