wow life is just flying by…there are so many new life changes headed our way but i don’t feel like a short post like this one will do it all justice! so this will be a quicky but i just wanted to check in and update you all on the whole30 program.
i am on day 11 and things are going well so far! i have surprisingly had more energy the last week than i have in a long time! of course when the chips and salsa come out i still want them but the choice to eat a different food is getting easier. i can also tell that its getting a little easier mentally if that makes sense. i don’t have huge emotional cravings for goodies and i’m feeling more comfortable making healthy choices because i want to and not because i have to. this weekend is our first big comp with Center Stage and i am a little nervous what i will eat all weekend so hopefully there are some healthy options near by or it’ll be a grocery store run for me:)
i have been seeing a new doctor and since getting my blood results back there are a large amount of imbalances that need fixing and he has placed me on an even more strict diet than the whole30. i’ll be honest, i felt totally overwhelmed when i learned i can’t eat eggs, tomatoes, dried fruits (i.e. lara bars), beef, and other red meats. not that i eat of ton of those things but eggs is a huge staple right now especially on the whole30. so i have had to get creative since grains, dairy, soy, and legumes are out too. i’m down to the basics but i am hoping i can get my health in order by taking these steps. the one other thing he informed me actually made me a bit upset but i can understand his reasoning. i won’t be allowed to workout for at least 3-4 weeks until my other tests come back and then it may be up to 6 weeks after that. i absolutely love crossfit and i arguged with him but he explained that my body is in too much stress to be putting more on it everyday. so that’s why you won’t be seeing very much about working out in the next little bit. i’m still able to teach since that’s not terrible and i can take a few dance classes here and there but the doc doesn’t want my body to shut down any more than it is:(
so i am going to be patient and do my best to get feeling better. day 11 is feeling great and i am hoping i am on the right path! so for now, it is time to focus on comp this weekend because my Center Stage kids are gonna kill it!
