So much for my comeback to Spark People. I really do miss being on here, but it's been pretty difficult with life getting in the way. Here's a little update:
1. I am now gluten free! About a month and a half ago, I decided to take the plunge and go gluten free. A lot of thinking went into this decision - before choosing this, I was feeling awful. Tired, moody, digestive issues, etc. Although I have only been on this for a short time, I feel a lot better.
I've come to realize just how sick gluten was making me. I have "glutened" myself a few times (usually at restaurants) and afterwards, I was so so sick. I would instantly get a headache, feel sluggish, and nauseated the rest of the day. After these situations, I've realized I have made the right choice!
2. I've been working my butt off (literally!). For the last month, I have consistently been working out. My job has a gym that offers exercises classes. I've been attending: tabata (4x/wk) and abs (1x/wk). I have also been walking, running, and dancing. I've been busy, and I love it!
While those two things are great, I've also been dealing with some very stressful aspects. However, I am just trying to take it one day at a time. I've accepted that that's all I can do.
On another note, I had a setback today. After a long day, I came home and binged on chips (at least they were gluten free!) because one, I was extremely hungry, and two, I was upset that I could not get my run in. I'll be honest - I'm pretty upset with myself, and I never want to deal with it again. I can't say that it won't happen again, but I really am going to try harder. I really want to do better this time around.
Well, that's my life update. Let me know how things are going with you!
