So, here were my measurements for 2/1/13. I didn't bother to go back and find the old post with last year's measurements....they're so 2012. :) If you want to look it up then you're free to, but just know that I lost a bunch of weight and inches.
This morning I weighed exactly 133 lbs when I woke up.
- Right bicep, relaxed: 10"
- Left bicep, relaxed: 9.75"
- @ smallest point: 26.5"
- @ belly button: 28.5"
- Right thigh, relaxed: 21.5"
- Left thigh, relaxed: 22"
- Hips: 38"
Waist to Hip Ratio: .70
I've been back in the gym regularly since 1/7/13, so I'm going to continue my routine of lifting and then trying to do yoga as some active rest on my off days. I think I might start bringing my gloves with me to the gym and doing a little kickboxing on my own. I am really missing that and I don't want to totally lose my skills.
As far as food goes for today, I have had 2 bananas and I finished off the roast/veggies that I made earlier in the week. I skipped Starbucks today (yay willpower!) and for dinner I had some left over chicken stirfry and some baked butternut squash with cinnamon.
Over the past year I've become a big fan of reading other people's blogs....no surprise there. I want to see what other people are doing and I clearly want to make sure my blog is the best. .....just kidding.....kinda ;) Anyways, some of my favorite blogs are doing "Outfits of the Day" which I realize has absolutely nothing to do with paleo + health......or does it? Stretch your thinking for a second and come on this journey into my mind where wearing cute clothes and feeling good about the way things look are a direct result of my lifestyle changes. You following me? Okay, good. I think this is the perfect way to 1) show off feeling confident about the way I look and 2) to put to use all the outfit ideas that I pin on Pinterest. #addictedmuch? #pinningcouldbemyfulltimejob :) So, here's today's outfit:
Details: These jeans are from H&M and I got them over 5 years ago, but I couldn't wear them for probably 4 of those 5 years because they didn't fit. They're a little big now!; navy top is from Express; Sweater was a Target find a few years ago, and my shoes (which I love) are tan suede Steve Madden booties.
