Hello. This is like my 5th time back to Spark People. I have been here before and had success with the support and resources. And then life happened lol and I let go of my progress. Then I got back on track last year and was eating right and exercising and seeing no results. I was extremely frustrated and gaining weight. I was sick non stop, beyond fatigued all the time, in horrible pain all the time, depressed...the list literally goes on and on. My dr could not figure what was wrong. I gained ...
Hello. This is like my 5th time back to Spark People. I have been here before and had success with the support and resources. And then life happened lol and I let go of my progress. Then I got back on track last year and was eating right and exercising and seeing no results. I was extremely frustrated and gaining weight. I was sick non stop, beyond fatigued all the time, in horrible pain all the time, depressed...the list literally goes on and on. My dr could not figure what was wrong. I gained 30lbs in 5 months. It was awful. Then I started seeing a naturopathic dr and we discovered that I am gluten intolerant. I am currently undergoing an extensive elimination diet to see what else I am intolerant to, or at least sensitive to. Since going gluten free in the beginning of Dec, I have naturally lost 4lbs. Since doing the elimination diet (on week 2) I have lost 8lbs. I am able to breathe through my nose again, I am more energetic, I am not hungry all the time...it is amazing!

So here I am again. Except this time I am gluten free and most likely will be totally free of other things permanently after the elimination diet. Hoping this time around I will do this right and reach my goal.

Update May 2012- I am down 25lbs since December 2011. I am gluten free, dairy free, sensitive to egg but still eating it sometimes, sensitive to beef but still eating it sometimes, and sensitive to processed tomato products and not eating them at all cause it is not worth the discomfort and ill effects.

My Program:
Exercise Program:

Cardio 5-6 days a week
Strength Training 3-4 days a week
I want to workout at least an hour 5-6 days a week. As it is right now, I am doing 1-2 hours 2-3 days a week and an hour the rest.

Eating Plan:
Because of my dietary restrictions, I should be eating gluten free, dairy free, corn free, and processed tomato free. I have non celiac gluten intolerance, an allergy to dairy/casein, a strong sensitivity to corn and all its products (it is in everything!! :( ), and a sensitivity to processed and canned tomatoes. This is super hard for me to follow still, as it has only been less than a year since discovering it all but I make my best efforts daily and hope to be free of everything and happy with it soon.

Personal Information:
I am 33 years old. I have been married for 5 years and I have 2 amazing children, a daughter who is 7 and a son who is 3.

Other Information:
I love fitness magazines and I have always had a desire to be a fitness motivator/trainer. I hope to turn my desire into reality once I change my own health.

Hope you had a great weekend Cheryl . Just stopping by to see how've you been doing. Hopefully you're feeling better by now emoticon
It's week 16 of our Springing Challenge and we're in the home stretch. Trying to finish STRONG and let all the DONE Girls know that the Bahama Mamas are the BEST! emoticon
emoticon emoticon

We'd had a lot of Mama's share that they have felt a little overwhelmed during our Springing Season, so we've also started a Jump Into June 4 week Bahama Mama only challenge. To help us refocus, refresh, or restart our programs. You'll be able to track your individual goals, weight, inches, nutrition, or fitness. So if you still want a challenge and accountability of a weigh in but don't want the pressure of the competition. You know where to find it

Hey. I am SO sorry it's taken me so long to drop by your page. I haven't had as much Spark time lately, since I have to share a computer with my husband, and when I'm on here, I'm so stressed to get so much done that forget some of what I WANT to do. Like drop by and see you. Thanks for inviting me to find you on FaceBook. Sadly, I don't have an account. I'm way to private a person, to share my life so openly with so many others. Heck, it was hard for me to make a Spark page. But sharing this journey with people that understand is something I don't get in the real world. Well, I hope you're feeling better by now, and that you've had a wonderful week.
