So last month, I explained the skin issues I’ve been dealing with. I didn’t mention that I’ve also been dealing with an injury at the same time. This injury started shortly after I got back from Colorado in June. I went out running one day and had a terrible pain in the top of my foot – so bad I couldn’t walk properly for a few steps after I stopped running. I was so scared I had a stress fracture… and so after much convincing from other running friends, I finally went to a physical therapist for an evaluation.
Recently, I’ve had a couple people ask me about / ask for advice on a couple of diets that are popular at the moment. Having tried a couple of these diets myself, I’m always happy to talk about them and relate my experience with them.
(To save you all from boredom, I’m splitting this story up into multiple posts.) Continue reading “Restrictive Eating”
Friends. I think I might need help.
I apologize for keeping you out of the loop, because I ran two races a couple weeks ago! I ran my second half marathon, the Rock ‘n’ Roll half in DC, followed by the Baltimore Shamrock 5k the next day. And I PRed in both races! Continue reading “Am I crazy?”
While reading the Whole30 book today, I found that my favorite part is the “what you’ll probably experience over the 30 days.” I noticed that I have followed the pattern (a little) that is laid out in the book. In it, it says probably around days 12-15, you will dream about food.
YUP. I dreamt about food on about day 15. and not even food I have all that often! I dreamt about ice cream. You know, when you get a brand new container, and the first scoop is always so satisfying to take? Yeah, THAT was what I dreamt about. Thankfully, that was only one night. Otherwise, no dreaming of food. Continue reading “Whole30 – Week 3”
So week 2 has been even better than week 1 was. I realized that the problem I had last week with running was in fact, a problem of not enough fuel. I went running on Wednesday night, and had more fuel to prepare for it.
As I said in my previous post about New Year’s goals, one of my goals is to SOLVE my digestive issues. I have some idea of what is wrong, but I’m still not quite sure. Cue Whole30. I’ve seen some posts about Whole30 on Pinterest and Instagram, but I didn’t really know what it was. So I looked into a bit, and thought it might be a good option for me to try, as it might be able to help me figure out what foods cause issues. Continue reading “Whole30 – Week 1”
Happy New Year!!
First, apologies for the lack of updates recently. As I explained in my previous post about sleep, and what I’ll also detail below, I’ve had quite a bit going on. Here’s to a new year with more blog posts! Continue reading “Resolutions”
