So glad to be eating real food again. My body is starting to feel better, less bloating and my "wheat belly" is slowly reducing in size. Still a bit low on energy but I am expecting that to return soon- we have been very busy moving house and very busy at work with the kids.
Still trying to find that balance though- we have been eating a heavy red meat diet this week, I feel a little slugish actually. I am craving some extra vegetables. Next week I am going to load up the greens a bit more and add at least 2 nights of seafood. Then see how I feel :-)
My brain is having trouble understanding the whole idea that you do not need heaps of cardio to have a good body size. I have started strength training at the gym (should prob put my program up here too) but I feel so lazy! Instead of an intense 45min of metcon at boot camp, I am lifting some heavy weights...wait stare at the clock.... lift again... is this really working...clock....lift.... am I wasting time?
Then I eat some food and I feel like I haven't done enough at the gym! I only really break a sweat in my 10min circuit at the end. I suppose it will get harder and more exhausting as my weights hit maximum....
I need to understand this more. I probably need to do some reading on how your body uses the fuel you eat to build muscle etc... send me some good links if you find some :-)
The who and why of it all
- Canberra, ACT, Australia
- Trying different ways to optimise life health and happiness by eating real food and bulding strength. I used to have migraines every fortnight that would put me out for days. I ate a lot of sugar in it's classic sweet form and in its filling bread/pasta form. I was always tired and weak but never overweight- so I never questioned my diet. Until someone else did. Now I barely ever get migraines, I am strong and getting stronger. I am more active than I have ever been.
