So here are my pictures taken one day apart (both in the morning because as the day goes on our bodies consume more things so you want to be consistent with the time of day you take progress pictures). The left picture was when I was consuming oats that were added back into my diet for a few days. The right was a day after going back to no oats and my total elimination of the allergen foods. I think that oats do not bother me as much as dairy, but I feel better when I do not consume them. I will save gluten for special occasions. As you can tell they make me bloat up a little more. So now I am back on the week one diet. I am going to try to add peanuts back in starting Monday. If you are looking to follow the plan I am on you can read previous posts. Here is a link to my blog about specifics of the diet :The Ultra Simple Diet Also, you may wonder why my progress pictures are only of my stomach. I think that your stomach tells you a lot about your health. Before I started this diet, my stomach never felt right. It would hurt and ache and feel tight and bloated. It would make me sad, upset, and angry with myself. In reality it was just my body telling me that it did not like the foods I was consuming.
Here is today's workout:
30 minute full body
5 minute arms
The two first videos (if you haven't noticed already) are two of my favorite videos currently. I have never completed them both on the same day though. I hope to be sore. I am going to try to find some new workout videos for you guys this weekend. Some people wonder how many days a week to workout. I think it depends on the workouts you do and the amount of time you do them. It also matters how your body feels. For me, I do a workout 7 days a week. If my body is feeling sore and tired then I will take a Sunday off. I am a busy girl with graduate school so I only get to workout for 45-60 minutes a day. If I had time to do an hour and a half workout I would probably add one or two rest days into my plan. I also really enjoy my workouts and they make me happy, so this is another reason I choose to do 7 days a week.
Any questions for me??
