I’ve been slacking with my blog post, but I wanted to update and share with you all how my fitness journey is going and the new workout gear that I purchased. First off, I talked about doing Whole 30 and you can read the posts below for updates on that:
In addition, I’ve been working out a lot more, but as fall rolls in and the Summer ends, I’ve been slacking really bad. I haven’t had the energy that I had during Whole 30 and I definitely have been having more migraines. I really believe that what you eat plays into a lot of what your body feels. When I wasn’t eating grains, cheese, and drinking more water, I really hadn’t experienced any migraines. My migraines are too the point where I feel extremely nauseous, I can’t keep my eyes open, and I’m to the point of tears.
During the entire Whole 30 experience I had no migraines nor did I have any headaches during my menstrual cycle. As I have finished Whole 30 I’ve realized that the migraines are back and they are just as intense. I really need to cut back on all the food that I’ve consumed. It’s like I was making up for lost time of not having pizza, pasta, and bread. I’m not going completely back to Whole 30, but I am going to eat along those lines. Anything to keep the migraines away.
As for my water intake, I have barely been getting to three bottles a day. When I was on Whole 30 I managed to drink anywhere between 6-8 bottles, but now I’ve really slacked off. I need to get back to drinking more water and stay away from the juice and the soda. The only soda I have drank is ginger-ale.
With Whole 30, it’s more of a body cleanse than it is a diet. It helps to curb your eating habits and even though I am done, I am not craving like I used to nor can I eat in the abundance I once did. In no way am I obese, but I would snack all day even if it was past midnight. I’d have a urge to get up and go find a snack. Now, I’ve been using water to supplement that late night craving that I still have.
So below are the workout clothes that I picked up. I was thinking of doing an entire separeate post, but workout clothes, NEW workout clothes, have really motivated me to work out. I purchased everything from Kohls from brands including: Tek Gear, Nike, and Fila. All items pictured were on sale and it was the deal of spend $50 get $10. I ended up getting everything for a little over $100, but with savings it was over $180.
I was planning on buying a new pair of sneakers, but I already have two that will last me for the rest of the year. I am currently using my Nike Lunar Glide 2’s which I’ve had for quite some time and my black and white Nike Free 5.0‘s. The Nike Lunar Glide’s that I purchased are super old because Nike is up to the Lunar Glide 7. I paid under $100 for each sneaker. I love how lightweight the Nike Free’s are and I love the support of my Lunar Glide’s. I’m debating on whether I’d like to buy the Nike Roshe‘s. I’m mostly leaning towards another pair of Nike Free’s because I absolutely LOVE the feel of them.
I want to not only get fit as it is just better for my health to do so, but I want to be able to run a 5K come Spring 2016. I want to run a 5K in support of lung cancer. That is my ultimate goal! I really just need to stop the boredom eating and continue to stay hydrated and active.
