Quick and Dirty Update

I’ll post indepth soon. But here’s a quick update, for the past week I’ve had random people come up to me to compliment how I look. Everything from “wow you’re abs are great” to “hey you’ve lost a lot of weight – how? I’m trying too!”. Ps. I haven’t lost a lot of weight. I’ve lost between 3 and 4lbs. I’ve had a handful of people see my pictures online and write to me about how good I look and I’ve had people stop me in the hall.

I’m floored. This is all I did – I decided I didn’t want to run for a while as I’m tired. I just want to walk some days while reading a book on the treadmill. I decided to take as many rest days as I want and that seems to be 2-3 a week which is 1 or 2 more then usual. I Started doing Visual Impact program but without the cardio. So its just 5 sets of 5 reps/ exercise and a 2 day split. So I do way less abs, and less cardio and less work.

And I decided instead of trying to eat just once a day to slash my calories that I was going to eat as much as I want but try to stay under 50 NET carbs a day. Which I mostly do but somedays I go over, so, whatever. That is it. I don’t eat fruit, grains, corn or soy – I now eat meat, vegetables, cheese, coconut oil, half and half (in my coffee and tea) and lots of dark chocolate, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and even a jar of Sunbutter this week – mixed with coconut oil. I had a few Atkins bars but I’d like to not have to do that. Oh and pork rinds. I don’t monitor calories at all, or how often I eat or how much. This seemed scary but I’ve just had an overwhelming response to how my body looks and after a few weeks of fatigue and insomnia – I now have boundless energy and sleep like a rock.

So – I’m happy and all that energy I spent on diet and exercise to get smaller and feel good for the past…um 22 years (yeah, I’ve been dieting since I was 9) – well, it’s now free to be used on other endeavors. I feel a surge of creativity and I have just been planning and plotting and scheming and writing and hell, whatever I want. I feel good. And I think I’d like to make a blog overhaul…I’ve been thinking about a revamp and a refocus!

*** this is not to say I think I’m perfect or need to stop working out and stuff. Most days I hate my thighs and I’d really like to feel like a runner. I love working on goals, I want to get stronger and more compact. I want to get bendier and more zen. This is just to say, I found that I’d like to live my life and not count what I ingest 24/7… or ever again. I’d like to not diet I’d like to just be
