Sorry I have been missing over the last few weeks, life has been a bit hectic and I just needed time out from well LIVE..
I have been feeling blah because I have spent the last year and a half getting fit losing weight and learning to eat clean but I still felt fat and bloated. I decided to try going gluten-free and see if that made a difference. WOW.. what a change my tummy is not looking like I am about to give birth. My head has stopped. When I went on anti depressant last year for a few months it stopped all the noise going on in my head. Well the same thing happened when I went gluten-free. I also have a lot more energy.
One thing I did do was have a take away here in town and found my throat felt like it was closing on me and I felt like I was hung over the next day. It really showed me how clean my body has got.
SO where to next. I am going to continue this gluten-free diet as it is making me feel great.
I wont be continuing my weekly meal planners but I will continue to put photos up of food I have tried and websites to where I have found information.
Now I have found a couple of Facebook pages I have found them great so will share them here. https://www.facebook.com/JustEatingRealFood
I have been getting great advice and ideas from them.
I have gone back to working out once a day it is all about finding the balance in life and I was trying to do way to much. So have decided to work out once a day during term time and twice a day during holidays. When time permits.
My garden is looking great and will try to get photos of what is happening but my garden is abundant with food for the summer.. It is great to see everything producing so much.
I did not do the Whanganui half marathon as I am not fit enough and I am still working on this shoulder it is getting a lot better than what is was. I hope to get back into it soon I am also going to have to relearn how to walk with out getting tense as this does nothing for my arm
Well It is nearly Christmas, all the family gatherings, work gatherings, friends gatherings, just cause we can gatherings. How do you manage to get through all these gatherings, I have two committee dinners to go to this is all new to me I just to go and just get what ever but now I have to really think about what I am going to do.
A) I have worked to hard to destroy all I have done.
B) I have got my body clean for the first time ever
C) I am now gluten-free and feeling way better for it.
So steps I have put in place are.
A) Know that yes I have worked hard but to have a few days now and then to let my hair down is ok. It is ok to be human to go out and have fun. Sometimes we get to entrapped in our new life style that we forget to have fun.
B) Yes I have body clean, If it gets dirty I will clean it again just like I have a shower. But I will make sure that I am prepared before I go to anything like having something to eat before I go so I am full and wont need to eat so much. Drink water when I am there. As that is what I drink and I am not going to drink other stuff for the sake of it. I know I can have a great time on water done it before I can do it again.
C) I am going to go and check out the restaurants before hand so I know what there is so I can have something so not to compromise my health.
With a little bit of planning your able to go out have fun and enjoy your Christmas and still have fun..
When you are out and about try to socialise the point of being there is to see friends and family that you might not of seen for a while. Try and chat to people away from the food table. Try and size what is on the table and if there are lots you like take small portions of thing to be able to try each if you desire.
JUST HAVE FUN…
