Week 6 - not so compliant, but still a (small) loss.
Week 6 Complete!
Today, I am down another 0.6 from last week. Iím actually surprised that Iím down in weight because I have not been 100% compliant with the diet this week. I have probably not exceeded the 30g carbs every day, but Iíve ... Read more

Finally losing weight, feeling great, and looking better!
What an interesting past couple of weeks! On September 28, my crossfit gym began an 8-week wellness challenge. Participants can earn 5 points daily, 1 each for sticking to the rules for the nutrition aspect, exercising 20 minutes or more, mobi... Read more
Well, it's been a while since I posted an update, and it is because I was embarrassed... I did not stick to my plan, and did not meet my goal, and instead I've been eating crappy and have gained almost all of the weight back. I'm still in the ... Read more
Week 4 - fell off the wagon, but climbed back on!
Last week, after my blog entry, I was feeling fine and strong. But, I didn't mention that my best friend from high school was coming into town on saturday for a night... and, well, less than 12 hours later, I was cheating!
On Saturday morn... Read more

Week 1 Done - results and thoughts
I started eating clean and strict, mostly paleo/primal last friday june 28. I weighed in at 157.4 this morning, which equates to a 3.2lb loss. This is good. However, I was down 4lbs on Monday, and a total of 5 on Tuesday, so I am a little dis... Read more

So far, so good. I stuck to my plan on Friday, Saturday, Yesterday, and so far today. And, I'm already down 4.2 pounds since Friday morning. Yes, I know that it's all water, and yes, I know that the scale lies. However, I am not going to lie... Read more
Time to Get Real... and STAY Real!!!
We went to the beach this past weekend for a long weekend, and I sure did eat way too much CRAP. Each night, I paid for it by lying in bed after being awoken to feed Annie, not able to fall back asleep. My belly hurt sometimes. And, I thought... Read more

Well, it's only been almost 2 years...
Wow, time does fly.
A lot has happened! I'm back at my old job, so I now have internet access! More importantly, I had a baby girl on January 31! I'm still carrying a good 20+ pounds that I desperately want to get rid of. So, I'm back o... Read more
