A year ago, I took this photo and thought: “You have a legit gut at 35. This is no good.”
Today, on day 3, I woke up feeling like a thin person wrapped in a fat suit. My wrists and fingers felt thin. My ankles and feet felt thin. I could imagine a fit, comfortable human smothered in this fat I’m carrying around. I don’t feel inflamed and I can’t remember a time when I haven’t. My knees and hips don’t hurt. I didn’t wake up groggy at 5:45am. As a matter of fact, I didn’t have trouble going back to sleep when I got up in the middle of the night either.
And if this is what this is…..fam, I’m all the way in.
No, I won’t be posting every day about all this. But I will post when it feels important. Feeling like a thin person trapped in a fat suit – felt massively important. I’ve never identified that way before.
Things learned from yesterday:
- I can personally polish off a Costco sized bag of power-greens in 3 meals. (Holy smokes, Batman. That’s a TON of veggies.)
- Steamed veggies are going to be what saves us. Nobody can live on salad alone. #instantpotftw
- This is suppose to be a business blog helping others get all bizsavvy but my most popular post ever? The BLE 241.0 post. What’s that all about?!
- We like oatmeal without sugar way better than we ever liked it with it. I can thank my Granny for that one. (She was a sweet-n-low OG.)
*Bonus: Bought a shirt yesterday and the sleeves are super tight. While this would have made me uncomfortable and I would have chosen not to wear this shirt, only a week ago; I know it’s going to be too big here soon, so it’s literally doesn’t bother me that it’s snug right now.
