Day 8

I'm not seeing as much change as I thought I would :-(
I don't know if it's because I'm exhausted from running around, or if I haven't been eating right lately, or that I haven't been strength training as regularly as I'm supposed to. Something has to change if I'm going to get that beach bod I've been dreaming of.

Decided to start another 21-Day Transformation ... but this time with Hubby! He's responsible for following through on all the 21-days of activity that needs to be done. My job is to follow through on the exercise. Bikini season is nearing fast ... must reach Beach Bunny mode!

I haven't been in much of a blogging mood ... I'm still in mourning over my cat, who passed away on Monday while I was away at work. It has been a shock for me, and I'm still dealing with the hole she left behind in my life.

Day 13 - Macaroni Grill

Definitely not Primal ... I had a small steak and Bibb salad ... which according to the menu was not gluten-free.

Day 12

Ate at Legal Seafood for the first time. Ordering from the gluten free menu was kinda entertaining.
I didn't know gluten free could look so good.
