Primal 21-Day Challenge: A Retrospective

So, the challenge is over.  Results?

Starting weight 149.3, Chest 36, Waist 31, Hips 43

Ending weight 145.5, Chest 34.5, Waist 29, Hips 42

I would call that success.  I would have liked to end the challenge at least at 142, but I will take it.

Outside of the challenge, I’m still adhering to it.  I’ve been eating primally and trying to exercise more.  I did have a little bit of an energy crash this afternoon.  I choose to blame damn hormones.  Overall, I feel so much better and usually have so much more energy, that it’s totally worth it to stay on.  I don’t really miss rice or bread or corn chips. I do crave sugar a bit, however.  I ate a date when I got home, but I really wanted to eat a Snickers.  But, feeling my pants be a little loose is all I need to just say no.

So, now that the challenge is over, what will I write about every day?  Well, I’ve decided that writing daily is too much – it’s too much to keep up with and too much for people to read.  It gets to be overwhelming, and overwhelming gets to be daunting, and daunting gets to be Heather Doesn’t Do It Anymore.  I do enjoy writing more regularly, however, so I will try to write at least once a week, on any one of the random topics my random blog covers – makeup, painting, conversation, hiking, biking, books, movies, recipes – anything is fair game.

Thanks for following me through this “journey.”  Man, do I ever hate it when people refer to things such as this as “journeys, ” but I’m going to do it be ironic.  It’s been a good trip, and this is but the beginning.
