    Primal Fuel
    i completed the LHT workout twice last week- as prescribed, level 1 for all movements except did standard squats- 2 cycles. for many reasons, this was a huge triumph for me!

    3 months on Tuesday.

    I'm down 29lbs...
    292 to 263
    I have gone down two belt holes
    I have gone from 40's to 38's in pants I just got all new pants at work (I wear a uniform) and 1 pair of jeans that fit.
    I have lost 29lbs of insulation! I'm freezing all the time.
    I don't think I will ever get out of 2xl shirts

    I commited to doing January 100% after several months of really bad eating.

    After 1 week: down 7 lbs and 1.5 inches in my waist!

    I've been following a Whole30 (really more of a 90/10 Primal, as I've let in the a few pieces of dark chocolate, a couple splashes of milk, and, on one particularly daring occasion, a teaspoon of honey! Horrors, oh noes! ^_^). Obviously I'm more concerned with creating a sustainable way of eating than committing to the Whole30 - something I may do further down the road when I have a bit more of a handle on my eating. But along with the dietary changes, I've been trying to limit my screen time and get more sleep as well. So instead of falling asleep to some movie blaring "background noise" after midnight, I've been dutifully shutting down my computer at 8 or 9pm and picking up a book.

    These past few nights I've actually been able to do some sustained, productive writing as well, something I haven't really done in years. I'd get too distracted and have a hard time focusing, or, perhaps the most annoying block of all, I'd really want to write by I just couldn't get my imagination to cooperate. I'm really looking forward to this vivid dreams that people keep mention as well!

    I've been able to breathe through my nose every single day this week when I woke up.

    I haven't been able to do that in YEARS.

    Last year (before primal) at Christmas I could hardly walk, was in severe pain,and had no energy. I mostly sat around waiting for the all the family events and parties to be over.

    This year I went sledding two days in a row with my nephews and even dragged the little one up the hill on the sled, shopped, cooked, played games with my family and hung out with my friends! Oh yeah - and I am 30 lbs lighter than I was then )

    It was awesome

    Walked past the cinnamon buns on the counter and nom nom nomed the roast I'd slow-cooked earlier instead. So. Much. Win.
