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!
Tonight I have the first training session with the Soccer Club I wish to join this year and I am super nervous!!! Continue reading
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

As much as I am starting to love exercise I am also realising that you cannot do it every day, you need to have a rest day to recover your body. Continue reading
Tonight I decided to stay at my parents place and I hadn’t planned on going for going for a run due to it being extremely hot but since my treadmill is at my parents place I decided to go for a quick run since it was a tad cooler inside. Continue reading
I was a little sore yesterday from my run the day before, I may have slightly pulled a muscle so I knew it wasnt a good idea to go for a run so instead I hopped on my bike whilst I was watching Game of Thrones.
I kept a steady pace and didn’t worry too much about how many k’s I should do, all I thought was that I needed to do some sort of exercise! So I ended up riding for 20min and got to 5k which I was happy with 🙂
Lets hope tonight I will be able to go for a job at least!!
