|Family Hike at the Tent Rocks just outside Santa Fe, NM|
I can feel and see the starch all over my body and face. Which is a good reminder of why eating like this is not ideal. But I am going to be 100% honest with you.... I knew coming in this past week I was going to indulge, get it out of my system and get back AT IT as soon as I got back.
I also just recently found out that my hormones and thyroid are out of whack once again. They aren't super out of whack like before but my doctor has put me back on hormone-pellet therapy and I will start my thyroid medicine again tomorrow. I am okay with that cos I know I felt best a year ago when on all three. AND I LOOKED GREAT AND LEAN THEN TOO!!! I would love to be therapy and med free, but I also realize I tried and sometimes the body just needs a little extra aid.
*** I am excited to also consult with my doctor on a new type of DNA test that will tell me EXACTLY what my body was designed to work well with and to stay away from. I have this appointment this Wednesday!!! Can't Wait!!!
|Last "late" January after 6 weeks of clean eating.|
|Me now! Bulky! Muscles but too much fat too! Time to lean out!|
Tomorrow I will begin to mimic the exact plan I followed last year. It was extremely doable... I am hoping to lose about 8-10# but of fat and not muscle mass. ** I have grown to love my muscle and love being STRONG!!!
