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
So who out there is like me and goes through stages where you love fitness and exercise and then it all slowly dies away and you don’t do it for a while and then all of a sudden its like ‘OMG I love fitness!!’ Well that is me at times 🙂 I did get majorly into it not long ago and as a result I dropped a few kg which I was very pleased about 🙂 but the only problem I have is that I get bored very easily doing the same thing over and over! The only equipment I have is a treadmill which after a while I get so bored with running and it’s housed in a bedroom which has little motivational atmosphere and then I try to listen to music to make it better but I have yet to buy a holder for my iPhone so at the moment I sit it on the bed so I can’t blast the music like I want.

So there was a house that my Boyfriend went to see last week that he loved and when he told me about it I fell in love with it too!! It was 4 bedrooms tiled in all rooms apart from 2 bedrooms, was brand spanking new and it was only about 5 minutes down the road from a soccer pitch!! (We both love soccer)
Well we were waiting back to hear from the real estate and she was meant to call us on Wednesday but I hadn’t heard from her, so I called her yesterday and she was with a client so I left a message to call me back……. well the day dragged on and I hadn’t heard anything and just as I was about to leave work I thought hmmm lets just check my Hotmail and see if she emailed me ……… and she emailed saying that the landlord didn’t accept our application 😦 I was shattered 😦
Now we have to look for some more places and on Saturday I am actually going to 9 yes that’s right 9 open houses!! Dont ask me how I am going to see them all but hopefully at least one will tickle my fancy!!
Wish me luck as ill need it!
Well the other night was my Soccer Presentation night and let me tell you it was a night I wouldn’t forget!!!
Let me start with a few of the good memories! Well firstly I got to wear a stunning dress that my boyfriend chose and bought for me! I got to see him dressed in nice suit pants and a black shirt! This was kind of only the second time we have been both dressed up really nice and I finally got a photo of us (I just have to get it off the guy who took it). It was so good to see my girls again I hadn’t seen them since the season ended which im really bummed 😦 but a few of them said we needed to catch up more so hopefully I shall see them more!
Everyone in the team got given a trophy for participating and we also got a medal for finishing Second on the ladder, would have been first but a stupid team beat us by like 2 points, long story behind that!! Apart from that we had the golden boot (I will never win as i am a defender, but I have scored before!) we had MVP ( most valuable player), that went to a girl who only started playing this year and she is AMAZING!! The next award was Coaches award which went to a new girl too, she had improved so much throughout the season and never complained about a thing! Then we had the Best and Fairest awards, the girl who won MVP won that too but guess who was the Runner up!!!!!????
ME!!! Thats right I won Runner up Best and Fairest!! and I was not expecting it at all!! I wasnt even paying that much attention when my coach read out my name I was so shocked!!
I still can’t believe it and I have such a smile on my face! Even telling the guys at work im so happy 🙂 usually I hate being the person going I did this and I did that but today I cant help it!!
