Contest at Civilized Caveman

Sometimes trying to be Primal can be expensive, so I take my time adding in all the little conveniences that make this diet easier to do with the time and money I have.  Hopefully some people can take advantage of the contests that some websites have, and get some wonderful stuff.  At the very least I have been very inspired in some of the stuff I have seen.  I am on a rediculously limited budget (school loans and trying to go back to school vicious cycle) so it takes a lot of patience and control not to just go out and buy a bunch of stuff for my lifestyle.  The original reason I had to not do this was because I get excited by new concepts and by up a bunch of stuff and then abandon it two months later.  Huge waste.  I have been involved in this lifestyle since September of 2010, so I feel pretty committed and I don’t feel this is a problem anymore.  However you can do this lifestyle without all the fancy stuff as well.  The tools are awesome, don’t get me wrong but I want people to realize that you can start this lifestyle on any budget.  In the future I plan on posting some tricks to make it cheaper, without sacrificing anything.  I know, big promises!


Anyway, on to the contest!  Civilized Caveman is having a giveaway if you go around and like a bunch of stuff on facebook and subscribe to a couple of newsletters.  Now normally it makes me really uncomfortable to do things like that, because of many reasons I don’t feel like going into.  However, the facebook likes appear to help out quite a few small businesses whose practices I think I could really get behind.  So definitely go and check it out!

This is going to be a truely selfish post.  My reasons for writing are to record the wonderful accomplished feelings I experience after coming home from kettlebell class in hopes that next Saturday I will go again, and the Saturday after, etc.  I almost did not go this morning.

If you have never done kettlebell, I highly recommend it.  Even for people who don’t particularly work out, its amazing!  This is my fourth or fifth time going, and I am definitely starting to click with it.  Another girl in my class (I shall call her Green Shirt!) was doing the class for the second time.  Talking to her and watching some of the differences between us (although I think she is more naturally inclined to it than I am) made me realize some of the reasons why it is so amazing.  The very shape of the kettlebells insures that you KNOW whether or not you are doing it right.  If you don’t do it right, its going to hurt.  The downside to that is it is really easy to become afraid of the moves.  But once you get a move perfectly correct (even if all the following times you struggle to match it) it feels glorious.  Your mind is amazed what your body can do.  You start out with these weights that just make you sputter to think you can move them the way the instructor is telling you to.  And then you get it and you immediately think, pish I can go way heavier then this.

I just feel so accomplished.  I love this class.
