The thing is, in these past 70 days, it hasn't budged much at all. Up until a few days ago I was having panic moments that maybe yet again one more "plan" of mine is failing me. Sure I feel great. Sure I don't have any more cravings for horrible foods, and I can look at any food item with out it ruling my thoughts for the next hour/day/week. Sure I've avoided sugar, grains, legumes, etc. for over 2 months, been going to CrossFit 4 days a week, but really? No change on the scale?
Perhaps I was spoiled by my initial Paleo experiment when I dropped 25 pounds in 3 months. Of course I'm within a few pounds of that weight I reached after the 25 pound loss, but I clearly have more to go! Hence my doubts.
On October 1st, I decided to take a photo of me in shirt that I really like, but it is just a tad too tight for comfort I would not leave the house wearing this:
And same outfit Novemeber 1st:
Ok, so once again, the scale is full of shit. I'm done panicking. Moving forward on my course for a year of sticking to this plan...
Ankle- still getting stronger. Sometimes I have some pain/stiffness, but after a warm up my mobility is nearly right back to where it was pre-sprain.
Recent lifts/workout feats that come to mind-
New Deadlift PR- 3 rep max- 200#
Box jumps- back to doing 18" box jumps
Ran 2 miles no problem
Sleep- getting plenty and still waking up before my alarm most days
Standing all day at work
Water consumption- good
Supplements- need to be better about taking fish oil and vitamin D.
Goals for November:
Continue eating a paleo diet
Continue to work on kipping swings at gym/increasing my dead hang hold time
Work on one-legged squats daily
Take fish oil and vitamin D daily
Have my first Paleo Thanksgiving
I took a new picture of me today, again, in an outfit that I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving the house in. The pants fit, but are snug, and the top I chose to go with the pants I wouldn't wear the two of them together just yet. You'll have to wait till December 1st (day 100!) to see if I feel comfortable wearing them together yet!
