Weight Holding steady:
My weight has really leveled out this last month or so. I track my food about 1-2 days a week, or anytime I see any number in the 116's or above. Keeping my carbs below 100 gms per day will cause loss. Keeping my carbs above 130 grams per day will start to cause gain. The carb "window" is very narrow. No wonder counting WW points did not work for me in weight maintenance.
In the month of Sept, I participated in a walking challenge. I pretty consistently walked over 10,000 steps a day, with many days being higher than 10,000. I was hitting 8-10,000 per day before the challenge. It's unclear if the extra walking kept my weight with little fluctuation, or I have my diet pretty dialed in, or both. Or none. Who knows?
Strength training: Very regular at one day a week, with half of Sept being 2 days a week. I'm getting comments that I look strong and toned. Awesome. For October, I'm still going to the gym once a week, but I'll focus more on exercises I can do at home. I have new motivation, but I want to test out my new routine myself, then report back in a month.

Photos: Still summer here in So. Cal. Fabulous for fall photo ops. I have no problems getting motivated to be outside, walk like crazy, and take photos.
Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook" and Chrissy Gower's "Paleo Slow Cooking" were available at my So. Cal Costco . So I bought both and I'm trying all sorts of recipes for batch cooking. The rest of the year is crazy busy, so batch cooking will keep my eating on track. Photo is from Sarah's book- it's slow cooker curried chicken. [Edited to link to the recipe], so go and BUY those books if you are into good , gluten free recipes. Next recipe, a roasted lemon chicken and bone broth. Yum!
