Despite my earlier skepticism, we have arrived at day 29 - only one more left to go. People ask me what's the first thing I'm going to eat on day 31. While it's tempting to go on a bender, I know that wouldn't serve any purpose other than to make me vomit. Like I've said before, we're going to do our best to stick to the Paleo tenants for the next 30 days. We'll indulge a bit, but we're really pushing to keep away from dairy and processed sugar for as long as possible and to use grains as a side rather than the main course. My husband has officially lost 52 pounds and reached his goal weight of 152. I'm still sitting at 34 pounds lost with 40 more to go. I'm trying not to focus on the number and to focus more on my goals.
If you missed my video yesterday, I got myself a little prize for hitting my 6,000 steps in one day goal. I'm leaps and bounds ahead of the 2,000 a day I was struggling to get back in July. I want to start working on my swimming goals, but it's so cold out there, I don't want to go to the gym (the manatee in me misses the water though, so eventually the pull will be to strong to ignore). I think I'm going to add in a treadmill goal too. Our treadmill's programs were written by a squirrel on amphetamines though (I don't think I'll be doing an hour at 6mph on an incline of 10). I just sifted through them till I found something reasonable.
So far, I'm really proud of all the progress I'm making both psychically and mentally. I fell like a new hair cut might be in order, AND I'm trying on the impossible pants again on Wednesday. Stay tuned for the next installment!
