The last few months I have done an overhaul of my diet. I have always had stomach issues and have constantly been in pain :( I would eat foods and then feel sick after or I would randomly just get a really bad stomach ache. It took years before I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Lactose Intolerance. This meant that I had to be more careful about what I ate and had to start taking a probiotic to help my stomach. Whilst on the tablets I was able to settle my stomach and was able to eat most things without having an upset stomach and thought I was doing pretty good!! It has only been recently since I have realized this, but I have not actually taken any of my probiotic tablets for about 2 months now and my stomach has been rather good. I put this down to the changes in my diet and my exercise routine. Let me start with the exercise, I have been doing boot camp twice a week for the last 6 weeks and have started soccer training the last 2 weeks so now that is 4 times a week that I will exercise plus any little workouts I do at home. Now the diet, I have stopped having toast for breakfast and changed to rice crackers with cheese and turkey and a strawberry smoothy, for lunch I am having chicken with couscous salad and for dinner either steak or something like that. I have cut out most sweets and am drinking more water. All this I believe has equaled to my stomach settling down and being less painful for me. I have found that I have more energy and are happier with myself and my body. Even when I wasn’t exercising too much I still noticed a difference in my body. I believe I have found a lifestyle that suits me and I hope I will be able to maintain this fitter healthier me!
Last week I went to my local Optus store to see when my plan was going to run out as i wasnt too happy with what I was on. Thankfully it was only 3 months from running out and the guy let me upgrade my plan manly because I was going to be getting a new phone with it too!!
I had my second session of boot camp last Thursday ( sorry of the delay in posting). It was a hot 37 degrees that day and I was hoping that it would cool down by the time 7.30pm came but unfortunately it only got down to 34 :(Continue reading →
