I've had food issues most of my life. I cant remember the last time I was thin. Growing up I was awkwardly big for my age, I was the tallest and although not "fat" I was built larger than most little girls my age. Now I'm in my 20s (and slightly overweight thanks to all things sweet) and I have a dairy allergy and I am gluten intolerant. I love food, but I'm starting to realize the feeling isn't quite mutual. Since transitioning to a strict gluten free diet a few months ago, I've already lost 10lbs. This blog Is the start of a new journey for me. Not just a weightloss journey, but an overall health journey. Wish me luck in this battle against cellulite and mass cravings!

Billy Blanks kicked my ass

So I woke up all bright and early this morning to get a good workout in before work.  I drank a couple cups of Rooibos Tea (low tannin content so its good for iron absorption!) and made myself a blueberry protein smoothie with the Alive! protein powder I purchased yesterday. I'm not sure how much of an energy boost it gave me but I think for how much sleep I didn't get, it did its job. I then did 30 minutes of Pilates and 10 minutes of Tae Bo afterwards....10 MINUTUES!!!! That's all I could do before I wanted to die....I mean it's easier for me to jog for 20-30 minutes then it is to keep up with Billy Blanks and his sweaty spandex! I definitely recommend investing in one of his DVD's they really do make you sweat. I read somewhere online that doing an hour of Tae Bo sheds 800 calories. Goodness, I hope one day I can find the stamina to go a whole hour. I'm hoping to hit the gym for a quick cardio workout sometime tonight just to make up for my total fail at Tae Bo this morning.
