Countdown: 3 Months Until "Hello Healthy Girl"

Hi Otherbeasts! The countdown is still ticking... my 2 Year Primal-versary is coming up in November. Remember, this phase is "Hello Healthy Girl" and I've got 3 more months to whip myself into shape.

I wanted to show you the progress so far though...

Remember, this was all possible by following Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint.
Healthy... here I come, ready or not!

Until Next Time,
<3 Shade

Goodbye Fat Girl! (75 Pounds Lost in 18 Months)

Hello Otherbeasts! I hope you've been well during my hiatus! I didn't mean to stay gone so long but being an adult sure is time consuming. Ah, well... here's an update:

Goodbye Fat Girl! 75 Pounds Lost in 18 Months!

Yeah, it took a bit longer than expected... those last 15 pounds really took some effort to get rid of. No pain, no gain, amiright? Here's the pics:

 Left Side:

I reached 135 back in August of last year (9 months into eating clean) but continued to fluctuate between 144 and 135 from September until March of this year (I admit some bad habits *cough* candybinges *cough* crept back in for a few months but I overcame them). 

Just this first week of May I actually saw "130" on the scale... which was my "mini-goal" for last year when I turned 30; now I'm about to turn 31. Joy. But I reached 130 in my 30th year! Hooray! 

Here's where we look forward to ushering in the next phase: "Hello, Healthy Girl!"

These next 6 months will be devoted to toning, tightening, building, and strengthening. Why six months? Well, 6 months from now will be my TWO YEAR anniversary from when I first started eating clean... and I think it's a more realistic goal than my previous one.

So, stay tuned!

Until Next Time.
