My friends and loyal followers, I have been absent far too long…and I apologize. I’ve been so busy over the past couple months, but…I am happy to report I am still #paleostrong, down 43lbs., and about to celebrate my 1 year of Paleo anniversary on August 9! It’s been easy, it’s been hard, and it’s been everything in between. I enjoy it though! I have mastered making kombucha…but I still can’t ferment anything. Haha Going food shopping and cooking has become a much easier and more manageable task as well. I’m a few days into another 30 day meal plan. This time around I enjoy it way more than I did a year ago. One thing still remains the same…not a big fan of fish. Can’t win ’em all. 🙂
Another big development in my life — my dad was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes back in April. He spent over a month in the hospital and a rehabilitation center. Thanks to my Paleo lifestyle and all of the knowledge I gained over the last year, I have been able to help him control his sugar with diet alone! I have even learned some other valuable things!
I still have a strong support system, and my mom loves my cooking! (That’s saying a lot.) I get my distaste for fish from her…she never eats my fish dishes. I have felt pretty good mentally and physically; it’s probably the best I have ever felt in my adult life. I’m always getting compliments from friends — “Your hair looks so healthy.” “You look so fit.” Oh, and a couple of my former favorite shirts now fit again…thus, they are my current favorites again! Such a great feeling!
I’m also finding my outlook on life is much better. My mental attitude has greatly improved, and yes, I think a healthy, balanced diet is key. I can also tell I am much more physically fit. I can now run a mile in under 9 minutes without any struggle.
I will start to blog again. I added something to pinterest, and I twittered to my followers that I’M BACK! Thanks for sticking around! Make sure you subscribe.
