I started this blog a few or so years ago. Wanted to use it as a way to document/be accountable to my weight loss journey. Well, much like a person who falls off a wagon for whatever reason, I too have fallen off the weight loss wagon. Four months ago I decided to get one major part of my health in check – my allergies. I didn’t realize how horrid my allergies really were. Not only am I allergic to the outside and the inside, but four pretty major food categories – wheat, milk (pretty much all dairy), soy and eggs. I knew I had issues with wheat and dairy, but eggs and soy threw me. I LOVE Chinese food, you have no idea. I haven’t eaten it since October. And I miss it. I made a concerted effort to change my ways, to branch out my, up-to-this-point, non-existent real culinary skills and to change how I eat.
It is amazing how not eating what you’re allergic to can really change how you feel. Food has been a huge staple for me (hence the chubbiness), but I was doing such a disservice to myself with ingesting what my body couldn’t properly digest. I was moody, stuffed up, had abdominal issues, fatigued, you name it. All because I told myself “it’s okay, you can eat this, you’ll be fine.” I wasn’t fine. I was hurting myself.
So, a new chapter/journey in my life began. Gone were the food groups that were destroying me (a little mellow-dramatic? Yes). January 4th began a new adventure that has become my new passion – Boxing! Title Boxing came into my life and has changed my activity level to one that I am seeing very positive results. This is a very slow process, and I know that. I have had to learn how to be patient. Please visit their website at: http://kentwood.titleboxingclub.com/
With this blog, my goal is to be accountable, to share experiences, recipes, and videos. I hope this is something someone can get some positive force from.
