I successfully completed day two of the basic program for "You Are Your Own Gym"... And I didn't fall over dead! :D
This is a major triumph because I was wondering, based on my soreness from day 1, if I'd make it. Also, went out with girlfriends last night and sticking to a basic primal plan wasn't too hard. THAT is a big difference for me. Woohoo!
Looking for fall/winter shoes and boots I realized that I don't have to buy wide-calf boots for the first time ever!
As a NSV (non-scale victory), this might be a little one, but still significant to me: I realized as I painted the toenails that I could STILL BREATHE!!!!
Punched (well, drilled with the air drill at work haha) another hole in my belt today. Good feeling.
Your Total Cholesterol/HDL ratio is: 2.97 - (preferably under 5.0, ideally under 3.5) IDEAL
Your HDL/LDL ratio is: 0.596 - (preferably over 0.3, ideally over 0.4) IDEAL
Your triglycerides/HDL ratio is: 1.462 - (preferably under 4, ideally under 2) IDEAL
YEAH :D Paleo ftw
Still a bit concerned with my triglycerides being 94 mg/dl but... could be due to my yet to be corrected hormonal imbalances with my TRT (Estradiol, hypothyroidism...etc)
322.8 closing in on 310.... woot almost back to teen aged weight
Good job quelsen. Your success is inspiring.
I've got a triumph..
I feel hot.
I've dropped three pant sizes in as many months. Going from 46 to 40 has been nice, but I am going to have to buy new pants. I took all of my 46 and 44s to the the salvation army the other day, perhaps someone else can make use of them.
Got on the scales this morning for the first time in a few weeks - and at 5'6'' and 153 pounds, I am FINALLY back within a healthy BMI range! Plus, felt comfortable enough to paddleboard in just my bikini - first time I have ditched the rash vest and board shorts since getting on a board back in July.
Started Primal on 11th June so in just over three months I have lost 23 pounds. I'd like to lose another 10 or so, but now my focus is less on the scales and more on body composition. If I stay this weight and lower my body fat, that's fine.
Right, off shopping to buy some new work clothes now, as none of my old trousers fit me any more...
I've just gone a week without sugar. I don't know quite how, but I have :)
