Thanks for your patience. We moved, and you know how that goes... major chaos everywhere and a few days without a solid internet connection (via computer) to, you know, blog and stuff.
So I'm back with some info for you. I have measurements... but no weight. Because... I can't find my scale. Dan packed it, and it's in a box SOMEWHERE. So, we'll just do measurements for now, weight later. :)
Weight = 173.0 / 163.0 (last known weight in Denver four days ago.)
Bust = 39.5 / 37.5 (-2)
Waist = 31.5 / 29.5 (-2)
Lower belly = 38.5 / 37 (-1.5)
Butt = 43.5 / 42 (-1.5)
Hips = 42 / 40 (-2)
I fit back into smaller clothes, and I'm feeling wonderful! So... you might ask, "What have you been eating?" Well, LOTS of salads. Like these:
Oh yeah, and veggie Nori rolls. Freaking yummy. (That's riced cauliflower, not rice.) :)
"Pasta" made out of zucchini, with baby bella mushrooms, red bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, italian seasonings, black pepper and evoo with fresh lemon juice. Freaking delicious!
Oh yeah, more salads. (key ingredients for me are sun dried tomatoes, red bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, sunflower seeds and walnuts. Usually I add half an avocado as well.) Dressing = balsamic vinegar and a little evoo.
When I was in Denver, there was a unique set of challenges. Like, eating RAW for every meal while traveling, not having my own kitchen, holy crap it was difficult. I did a huge bunch of grocery shopping when I got there and bought a ton of fresh produce, fruit, etc. I also bought my brother a juicer like mine with the stipulation that I get to use it when I'm in town. ;)
So, I had the juicer and a huge cooler of fresh fruits and veggies with me for the two and a half days I stayed at the hotel. Here is the juicer in the room with me.
I did go off "raw" for one meal: a celebratory sushi dinner with my brother and his new wife! I had eight pieces of various rolls, and my own "riceless" roll, which was delicious. I also tried the seaweed salad, which I HAVE to start making at home. It was ridiculously delicious.
SO. What has it done for me in these 28 days?
My skin has come upon a DRAMATIC difference. My apologies for wearing the big baggy t-shirt in the last photo, but for that, I'll show you what it's done for my body.
I've had to switch to my smaller bra, (sorry, Dan.) -- And I can fit into this halloween costume, the one I could NOT get into (the corset especially,) even three weeks ago.
I love RAW.
