Did You Hear That Pen Drop?

Sorry it has been so quiet in here.  Life can sometimes get away from me.  But trust me that I did not let it get in the way of improving my lifestyle!  So about a month ago I told you all about my journey beginning as a Beachbody Coach, drinking Shakeology and doing my morning PiYo workouts.  Better late than never, here are my results:

After 4 weeks I am down to 124 lbs.  I am not looking to lose more weight, only tighten and tone where I am at.  I learned so much during this four weeks and even started a 2 week LCHF Challenge Group.  They are doing great and are coming to the end of week 1.  I am so proud of them!  I hope they can see some of what I have seen while on this journey.

{MEN – skip this paragraph}  Ladies can I tell you one of the most exciting things I noticed, as well as N’s dad?  Normally when I come up to my monthly cycle, I feel like a beached whale.  I pull out the size bigger clothes and baggy shirts from my closet to help me feel more comfortable and less restricted for a few days.  I did not have to do that AT ALL this month!!!  Did you hear me?  I probably bloated up only about 10% of what I used to!  10%!!!  If that doesn’t get your attention I don’t know what will.

Cravings for carbs… week 2 was a struggle for me.  That is when my cravings were the strongest.  I fought the urge to indulge in any purposeful carbs (pasta, rice, bread, white potatoes, candy) and stuck to my guns.  The payoff was Halloween!  No I didn’t gorge on candy.  On the contrary I had ZERO desire to even look in my son’s candy bag.  Heck because I do most of the cooking in our house, everyone pretty much eats what I eat.  So, N and his dad are also eating less purposeful carbs and candy.  N has only asked for candy from Halloween twice!  This is huge!

I mean I may be able to show my son how to grow up eating the good things so he doesn’t struggle like I did as an adult.  Not to say that anything was wrong with what I was fed as a child.  But as a society we were taught that fat made us fat and whole grains were better for us.  So, we all ate that way.  Now it turns out that we were wrong.
