Health Update + BTS of Instagram Pictures!
Posted by E
On a totally different note, I'm going to give a little update on my health & fitness journey! I've been gluten and dairy free for over a month now, and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made! I've always been allergic to both of those foods and I don't think even my friends know how sick they make me. I hid it well for years, because quite frankly I was stupid, I liked the food too much, and I didn't want to be different from everyone else. My health took a serious blow last year though, and I promised myself going into this year, that I would work my butt off to make this a better year. I am feeling much better, but I still deal with problems sometimes. Just in the last few days I've realized peanuts are another food I don't tolerate well, so I'm kicking them to the curb this week. I don't eat a lot of peanut butter or peanuts anyway, but I'm going to have to read labels a bit more carefully.
Last weekend I hit my eleven pound weight loss mark, which felt amazing. I let the stress and chaos of the week get to me though, and I know I've lost some of that progress. Tomorrow I'll be hitting my workout hard, and really buckle down on my nutrition. This week's focus is more water, more vegetables, less carbs, and harder workouts. I've been doing a lot of two-a-day workouts, which is kind of insane with my schedule, but I need it. It's hard for some people to understand, but working out is how I keep my sanity. I absolutely love working out, and my whole day goes better when I do.
I'm committing to posting everyday on Instagram this week, to really track my workouts and meals. You can follow me @em_tonedup!
Here's to a wonderful week filled with hard work, dedication, and a little chaos!
