A few have sent emails asking about my new WOE (way of eating; and really it isnt that different). I have begun to implement Primal (or some know as Paleo). Really this is just good clean eating; no processed etc., so again not too far off my beaten path, however it does have some carb 'restrictions'; nothing like Atkins or that crazy stuff, but definitely focusing on limited grains etc. A couple of the reasons I am doing this is because a) I love my clean eating, with my occasional indulgences and b) I tend to eat more processed when I am not watching my carbs (other than veggies) and finally c) I have the midsection situation when I do B.
When I clean up my carb situation, I lean out through there and with other factors for me (age and hypothyroidism), its difficult to keep that under control.
Here is a bit of example:
|October 2009. Really tell where I gain huh? I wish I had my first year of photos...at that time I was clocking in around 138 (a lot on this little 5'1 frame where even 5 lbs makes a huge difference; at least on me it does)|
|Houston full marathon - January 2010 - slimming down as I had started 'clean' eating back sometime in November I guess it was...|
|Late Jan 2010 - started porking back up...Thick in the middle and the thighs came back|
Until i got to this...took me all Summer and it was slow, up and down a lb or 2 here, up and down...but...
You have seen recent photos from Angies and from Four 4 the Park and while overall I am really happy about losing the added weight again and toning (I think my legs and arms look better than they ever have to be honest), the midsection still always a trouble spot. After 2 weeks I can see and FEEL the difference not only from the outside but I can feel it on the inside again. Sleep is better, mood is better...everything is just better when I stay away from anything process except for the rare occasion and even just staying away from pasta, rice (no matter if its brown or not..bread, again, brown or not, it still fucks with me inside and out.
