I was working all winter break long, and then had allergy issues, a virus, and a medication reaction to deal with (in that order) for three weeks. I had to get blood tests done, and we’ve discovered that I have some new things to add to my list of food allergies: egg whites and yogurt. There goes my breakfast staples.
For review, here’s the foods that I can’t eat now:
So now I’m starting a new lifestyle. More protein, more basic things, more vegetables and fruits- And more food in general. I haven’t been eating enough- Not because I’ve been trying to eat less, but because my ADD medication makes it so I don’t feel hungry, so I don’t remember to eat.
I’ve also started a weight routine, with intermittent cardio. I plan to start doing yoga in a week or so. (I was going to do it this week, but we had a bit of a storm here in good old Colorado, so I’ve been snowed in since yesterday.)
I’ll be working on a post later today on how to make your fitness routine rewarding, or motivating yourself to work out, using a couple of apps and websites that have popped up recently. Stay tuned!
