Right, so after I went a little wild in December, I decided to reel things back in in January with a month (thirty-one days actually) of Whole30 goodness. For those of you unfamiliar (and/or opposed to opening links), the Whole30 basically means I excluded the following from my diet for thirty days (yes, I am a little bit proud of myself that I managed thirty-one days):
– Legumes (including soy)
– Processed foods (I did eat minimally processed sausages)
I also kicked up my workout from my December slacking. Here are my results side-by-next (OK, fine! Damn formatting! One below another):
OK, I admit it; I am not seeing as much difference as I had hoped. I think I can imagine I see a little more definition in my abs and my shoulders, but the different sizes of the pictures/distance from the mirror make it a little hard to tell. Maybe my hips look a tad smaller? I guess it’s time to resort to measurements. I do feel more in control of my eating and exercise, so that’s good. I also did manage to get closer to 131 lbs instead of around 133 lbs, and I have got to remind myself of the forever that I was stalled out at about 138. Progress, albeit slow, is still progress! OK, taking a deep breath and powering on! Here’s to seeing the underbelly of 130 pounds!
