Gained one kilo this week. I'm ok with that - last week probably wasn't demonstrative of how things really were.
This week I've started introducing foods back into my diet. So far dairy [old intolerance], soy and wheat are off the menu for me. Had wheat and soy on Saturday, and that resulting in a long and painful night of tummy cramps, plus itchy skin.
I need to learn how to work around these changes in what I will allow myself to eat. It's tough, since I love wheat products - I could eat pasta and noodles everyday, probably every meal if I could. And soy and wheat are in so many things as well, so I need to be extra diligent in reading the ingredient lists on food.
My dad brought over the cross-trainer this week. It's great. So far I've only done 15 minute bursts, equalling about 4 kilometres each time. Really gets the blood pumping quickly, especially using the set programmes on it.
