There’s no excuse for my absence. I need to be better at adapting to change so I won’t attempt to make any excuses, just here to update, finally!
I am still blown away I am seeing these results! I have been very consistent with my lifting program, but not consistent at all with my cardio program. I think I have gone running twice for 30 minutes each time in the past month. That’s all about to change!
Friday/Saturday/Sunday are my off days and are going to have to be my running days. I realized the couch to 5K program is a little too elementary for me so I am going to start off at 2 mile jog at my current comfortable pace and do intervals for the third mile. There’s no reason I can’t lift Monday-Thursday.
Also, I have my results for my ALCAT Food sensitivity testing. The results weren’t very dramatic. I have a mild intolerance to gluten so I am going to make an effort to eliminate it completely from my diet (not really a large task) and avoid blueberries, romaine lettuce, and walnuts for about 3 months because I have a mild intolerance right now to those as well. The hardest recommendation is food rotations. The ALCAT diet recommends doing a 4 day rotation so that you don’t repeat the same foods earlier than every 4 days. This ensures that you don’t build up an intolerance and develop food sensitivities that cause inflammation in the body. I will try that out. I cook for myself only so I usually have a lot of leftovers. It may not be realistic for me to eat on a 4 day rotation. Maybe 3.
I also plan on catching up on my blog reading today, but tell me, how are you all doing? Meeting your goals? I hope your life is just peaches!
