January came and went in a whirlwind. We made a significant life change, which is good (more on that in another post), celebrated Curren's 4th birthday (will have to put that post up later), sickness started at month's end in our home, and we walked through some difficult days with a friend who was deeply struggling through life. It was a really heavy month, but we found moments of joy in the daily routine. Thankful for friends and family who have loved us well and supported us during the last several weeks.
Here's a quick look at what we've been up to.
Whole30 (a dietary restart if you will, or a highly restrictive Paleo diet) on January 7 and made it to the end. The food was delicious, we were satisfied at every meal, we feel better, sleep better, and look better. I lost 7 pounds and a couple inches from my waist and hips and Aron lost 27 pounds and more like 4 inches from his waist and hips and is down 3 pant sizes! I started running again too. It's such an incredible feeling to really be enjoying food and not counting calories or eating only x-size portions. We eat to fulness and aren't finding the need to snack throughout the day. Now, I'm continuing to cook a Paleo diet. And we are bringing the kids on slowly (in case you are wondering how they are doing).
