The Life Detox

Now that all of the 'new year, new me' posts are out of the way, I wanted to share some things I've been doing. I don't mean drastic changes but a few life changes I've made to keep me healthy.

If anyone knows me personally, you will know I have the worst diet out there and I will admit it. I don't eat large portions or eat many meals a day, but it's never that healthy. Lately I've been forcing myself to eat outside of the box, be a little be more adventurous and I'm enjoying it so far. One 'big' change I have done is cut out wheat/gluten. The main reason I'm cutting it out is that I found that whenever I ate wheat, I became very bloated and I could do without that. I'm not the biggest fan of bread, it's something I can do without but I've found I've started to crave it a lot more since cutting it out completely. Heck, I did not realise gluten was pretty much in everything. I've gone three weeks without it, except from a slice of banana cake which I couldn't resist. I think from now on, I shouldn't take it as seriously as I found I was eating a lot more than usual. If you ask anyone I work with, all I talk about is food I can't eat. I'm not allergic to it, so I could have it if I wanted. Heads up, these crackers are delicious with a little bit of cream cheese on top.

I've been drinking a lot more water recently, about two litres a day, which is reasonable. This is a big step for me as I never used to drink enough, I could go a day with only one drink. I've found that carrying water with me makes it a lot easier and I drink it all day at work. I've also upped on the vitamins I'm taking. They're always 3 for 2 in Tesco so it's easy to pick up a variety, I went for Vitamin C and Multivitamin. I'm thinking of picking up probiotics as it may help with the anti-gluten thing I have going on.

Now I just need to step on the exercise and I will feel a lot better. My excuse is that I'm still not settled into my own place and that I need pink trainers to work out inโ€ฆ
