10 Months of Healthy Blogging!!!!

I started out my day by comparing what I have been able to accomplish in the past 10 months...
The left my first Day in July 2012 weighing 157 lbs, the right my last weigh in April 2013 @ 138 lbs!

When I put these two pictures side by side I was SHOCKED!
I did not realize what a BIG difference was made!

Maybe only I notice because it is my body...

But my face & boobs & waist have DEFINITELY gotten smaller!!!

It's amazing what (almost) a year of mostly clean eating and going to the gym at least 3 days a week will give you!!

I'm SO HAPPY I decided to change my life!!! Everyday I feel healthier & happier about my body!

I can't wait to see what the future holds and I am SO EXCITED TO ROCK A BIKINI THIS SUMMER!

I FINALLY made an instagram, and that was one of the pictures I posted yesterday!!!

Day 2:

 Breakfast: Smoothie. 
Banana, Strawberries, Milk.

 Lunch: Famous Daves
2 ribs, 1/4 of a chicken & green beans

 Dinner: Some kind of chicken cooked in a pineapple salsa? With mixed Veggies & fruit!

(my sweet boyfriends mom invited us over for dinner and cooked this in my honor, knowing I was doing a Paleo Challenge!)

***Then she invited me over the next day for enchiladas... which I politely declined ;)

I did well on my graph today (I am going for more fat and protein, less carbs) so this made me happy!

 And THEN I made a grocery list for when I get my next pay check!!!
(that means I don't need these for the week-week food, just frivolous spending) ;)

I've been thinking allot about how I can make my lifestyle more "liveable". 

I'm not one of those people who could be hardcore Paleo FOREVER!!!

But I have decided I LOVE being gluten free. 

I started doing research last night about a few different things I could add back into my diet
 (in proper proportions). 
I have been looking through the AWESOME blog Mark's Daily Apple and if you search his website, you will find he has gone through the different health benefits/negative aspects of ALLOT of foods!!!!

Things like:

Steel Cut Oats
Brown Rice?

I'm going to keep researching the best gluten-free, almost paleo things that fall under the EAT CLEAN category!

Do you eat rice? Steel cut oats?

What type of eating plan do you follow?


  1. I am 85-90% Paleo, I drink beer. Can't get rid of it.

    I have tried Whole 30 and they are not for me.

    I don't eat any breads, rice, pasta or the like, have no interest in them.

    I don't consume dairy, other than eggs. I thought this would be the hardest and it was the easiest!

    I think you need to find what works for your body and go with it.

    The difference in your face is amazing!

    1. I occassionaly add dairy in (like in smoothies) but I no longer drink milk with meals/eat yogurt, ect.!!!! How do you feel about pb2?? I was thinking of giving it a try (even though its VERY processed)! Thanks for stopping by!!!!! :) xoxo Dani!

  2. You look amazeballs. So proud of you!

  3. You look great!!! What an accomplishment in 10 months!

  4. Congrats on your 10 months of blogging! You've done such a great job, and wow! What a difference :) Can't wait to follow how you'll be doing in the next 10 months!

    I'm totally off any grains and rice. I find that it doesn't agree with me at all, even quinoa. It kinda sucks coz' quinoa was such a great thing to have with vegetables, but now I'm just having the vegetables without.

    1. That's awesome that you have found what works with your body!!!!! I have been thinking allot about experimenting with different things... just to see what I can and cannot add back into my diet!!! Sometimes I have NO cravings and somtimes I am STILL bombarded with longing for anything that tastes like bread! Now that I have been using instagram I have been following ALLOT of people who seem to be getting allong well occassionally eating steel cut oats and thought I'd give it a try!!! Thanks for stopping by :)
      xoxo Dani!

  5. That is a huge difference, you look amazing! I just found your blog from the NSV link up and I am loving it, I will definitely be following!

  6. You look great! Headed over to IG to find you! :)

  7. You look great! I've been thinking about going Paleo, but I have trouble giving up beer. I was off rice and pasta, but the last two weeks those seem to be themes. I know how much better I feel without them! Good job in 10 months!
