Happy New Year. Bring it on 2011!

OK, we all have a clean slate to which to begin 2011. I, like the other million or so, will make an asserted effort to do “good,” or “gooder” than last year.

2010 was a great year for me: finished graduate school, accepted to Italian Defense College, and I got to hang out a lot with my bella wife and kick-ass daughter.

2010 was not, however, the best year for me health-wise. I tore my meniscus in a race in April, and was generally a slug. I did put forth a great deal of effort during the Holidays…eating and drinking merrily. And it showed on the scale at 11:45 p.m. Dec. 31st: 217 lbs.

All OK though, because I have successfully dropped the same amount of weight before heading to Afghanistan in 2005. This time I am trying a new tactic. At an early Christmas party, my uncle and cousin both were raving about their results after trying the Primal Blueprint. My uncle has been at it for over a year. my cousin about four months. So when my wife got me a kindle for Christmas, the first book purchased was the Primal Blueprint.

I must say that I like the philosophy and since Jan. 1 I have have been following the “program.” Per previous posts from well over a year ago, I used to do CrossFit “regularly.” They recommend a similar diet to PB’s, but a little more regimented. I am going to dedicate three months to PB and then evaluate to see if I need to step it up.

It’s only been four days so far. More to follow.

Wish me luck!
