fit report: i want a backyard garden
so...today is the day i am suppose to share my weekly fit report.
but i have to say... this past week was not a very fit week. and though it may not all attribute to one thing, i am going to blame the holiday weekend!
but that is life, there are times in your life where you must feast and fast. and this past weekend was a feasting weekend. not to say that i didn't make healthy choices, or that i didn't work out at all. but it was a weekend where i had second helpings of ice cream and did not hold back :) but i still do have four "fit" things to share!
the first: i did get a few runs in last week(two). so it is better then nothing but, that is alright. embrace it and move on!
the second is i read wheat belly over the weekend which basically explained how the obesity crisis in the united states is closely linked to the annual increase of wheat and flour in the american diet. this book points out that through out the years wheat and flour have slowly been added into every product (mostly processed products), and as the united states became more dependent on these products, the obesity crisis continued to clime. a bit biased but it was still a good read and highly recommend it to anyone who does not know a lot about wheat based products and the associated risks with them.
the third is that i am gluten intolerant. this has been going on for a few months but i haven't shared this on the blog. after years of headaches and stomaches, fatigue and odd bowl movements, i have found the culprit! gluten. it has been a sad process with not being able to eat cookies and cupcakes. but i have found that i am feeling ten time better then i did a few months ago. now it is just a learning process of what does digest or does not digest well.
the fourth and final thing: i have been become obsessed with my dream garden. all i think about is how i am going to turn the entire backyard into a beautiful garden filled with flowers and veggies. i just love love love having the small garden that i have right now. its so great to walk out your back door and pick some fresh herbs to use for dinner. chad and i don't live in a place where we would be able to maintain a backyard garden but i am thinking that next year i may rent a plot within the local community so i can expand my gardening efforts!
so, how was your fit week? did you get any moving in the holiday weekend?
