Wednesday was my 1st day of the kettlebell express class at the YMCA. I’m not to great when it comes to strength training, even though I know it is more important for your body than cardio. But to hang out & lift after running? Not appealing to me. So I decided to take a class. Oh my goodness – I can barely walk today!! For a 30 minutes class it really kicked my ass. Then to top it off I ran again today. UGH!!!!
I decided to stop by the local LA Fitness & see what was so exciting about. Nice gym – the fans attached to the treadmill was the most exciting things I found. I wouldn’t mind joining if it was not for the $249 initiation fee. Really??? So needless to say – I have 2 days left & that will be that.
As far as nutrition goes – I spent the month of August doing a Whole30 regimene No dairy, no grains & no added sweeteners. I did pretty well though at the end I made a few mistakes. My lovely 9 year old was kind enought to tally them for me – 18. But all in all I learned alot. Especially the week AFTER. How sensitive my digestive system became. I always knew that something wasn’t right after eating sometimes but since I ate so much crap all the time I had no idea what it was. Too much gluten is not good for me. And that goes for sugar too. I thought I was in hell last night after eating at tiny sliver of cheesecake. It was awful. Lesson learned. Not quite.
Since I am trying to get my 9 year old on the gluten free lifestyle I needed to bring along some treats to entice her. So I bought Chocolate Triffle Brownies form the Gluten Free Pantry brand. I am starting out with box brands with the intention of moving to homemade goodies. I whipped them up today & they are wonderful. I would have never guess that they were gluten free. Big bonus in my box. Almost too chocolaty - if there is such a thing. Now to have my daughter taste test them.
Update: She loved them!!
