food evolution, it’s been a full year!

Wednesday April 18, 2012

I’ve. Never. Felt. Better.

Never felt better!

Mentally, emotionally, and physically.

Without a DOUBT it is because of how I’ve changed and evolved with my food choices.

I used to wake up 3-5 times a night and feel like I never got a good night’s sleep. I am no longer a restless sleeper.

My lack of motivation and procrastinating tendencies were getting ridiculous. They are no longer an issue. I’m getting shit done and it feels great. I’ve never had this much energy.

I constantly battled with my skin. My acne has drastically improved and it still surprises me when I look in the mirror.

Very often I would be blindsided by a random 24 hour allergy attack and be in bed with a box of kleenex an entire day. These attacks have practically disappeared.

Headaches were my normal. Migraines, tension – you name it I had a headache. I would get them weekly. There has been a HUGE improvement and I am not in pain anymore.

Holy shit.

MY LIFE HAS CHANGED.

As a very happy side affect of feeling so much better, my body is thanking me.

Starting weight, April 2011: 139.9
Starting attitude: Depressed, lazy, and unhappy.

Current weight, April 2012: 124.9
Current attitude: Happy! Refreshed! Optimistic!

15 lbs GONE.

But more importantly – my unhealthy mind is also GONE and for that, I am so thankful.

With all of that said, please know that everything is not perfect. The changes I’ve made have worked for me – but it doesn’t mean I don’t have bad days, or procrastinate, or get a zit, or get a headache anymore.

But I can’t deny that there has been a drastic change in my everyday life – all for the better.

I never knew that I could feel this good.

Fruit is in.

Legumes are out.

Paleo is in.

Slow-carb is out.

It’s about a way of life — and not so much about weight loss anymore.

Feels good, and is only going to feel better.
