One year today!

Today is a special day for me- I have been primal for one year! It's been one of the best years of my life and I really look forward to continued progress and health. I've lost almost 70 pounds, lowered my cholesterol and triglycerides, and actually ENJOY exercise! I am SO grateful that I was introduced to this way of life. I was feeling pretty hopeless- but now I feel like I can do anything! I hope this year brings about another 25 pounds of weight loss and continued strength and wellness. :) If any of you have doubts as to whether this can work for you- it CAN! Just stick to the plan and you will see amazing results in your health.

Birthdays are hard!

I celebrated my birthday a few days ago, and I REALLY indulged in some not so healthy treats. My grandmother knows that my favorite meal are her homemade biscuits with tomato gravy and for dessert- blackberry sauce over the same biscuits. I ate a TON of them. I also indulged in quite a bit of Ben and Jerry's oatmeal cookie ice cream. While I was enjoying all of the food at the time, afterwards, I was HURTING!

I've never really had a problem eating high carb foods, but since my body is longer used to all of the sugar, I had a REALLY bad stomach ache and couldn't sleep all night.

I definitely enjoyed my birthday dinner- but next time I'll eat a quarter as much!
