Fitness is actually a big part of my life. In high school I played a lot of sports. I started running track in the 6th grade all the way to my senior year in high school. I also played Volleyball in a recreational league when I was in the 11th grade. Now that I am way past my high school years, I like to hit the gym. Which is what I am sharing with you all now. First let me say, I am not a doctor, physical therapist, or have any formal training in fitness, I just do what works for me.
I go to the gym about five or six times a week (I try at least).
In addition, to going to the gym on a regular basis, we have to eat well. Overall, I have a healthy diet. For the most part I eat clean, and avoid processed foods. Like any other person, I enjoy my sweet treats and I don’t ever plan to cut them out in the foreseeable future. Although, I am getting older (I will be 30 at the end of the year!) I have noticed my metabolism has started to slow down. I also have been eating gluten free for about four years now, which helps with my carb intake. I try to stay away from the gluten free alternatives available, if it is not gluten free naturally it is my goal not to eat it. For example, gluten free bread, pasta, cookies and cakes. Keeping this honest, I do eat gluten free items, I try to keep it to a minimum, they tend to be packed with sugar and junk to make it taste good. Usually, they succeed.
Before, I have you reading for days I am going to cut this short and revisit a post on my diet at a later date. It is very interesting and complicated all at the same time. Stay tuned.
