Currently Crushing On:


An Ongoing Battle With My Body

This is a little bit different from my usual post, however I feel that it is something that I need to address. Throughout the past few months, to say that my health has been at the forefront of my mind would be an understatement. We all go through stages of feeling deflated; whether its about our body, or our mindset, it's unavoidable.. right now my body is what is throwing me off balance, and it is a battle that I no longer have the patience, nor the energy to fight. Since I started blogging I have only touched on my experiences with bloating and digestion, amongst other food related issues, however over the past 6 months or so this has become a bigger, more tiresome part of my life, leaving me feeling all in all a little bit shit.. I love food and have no doubt that I always will (I'm the sort of girl that would marry a muffin if I could!), but over the years my relationship with the good stuff has become somewhat love/hate.

I'm not going to beat around the bush, I was irresponsible when it came to eating habits in my teens; I would go for hours without eating anything and then binge as though I didn't know when my next meal would be. But on a brighter note, I realised that I had a problem and worked hard to overcome it, and here I am, happy, hungry (always!) and relatively healthy. However, as somebody with a now very weak digestive system, my body has a tendency to react in ways that I'm sure you would much prefer me not to explain. I often find myself avoiding situations where I have to eat in public, due to the fear of excruciating stomach pains and bloating to such an extent that people start to look at me funny- I have taken to accepting the encouraging smiles, finding it far less embarrassing than having to explain a situation that is yet to be diagnosed. 

I am now on a mission to rebalance my body, forcing myself to cut out the foods that don't agree with me and making small changes to my eating habits in general. I have been made aware on several occasions that foods with a high gluten content don't mesh well with my body, and the same goes for too much dairy, so I am slowly building up my collection of cook books, in search of some delicious and nutritious recipes that do not contain such ingredients.. suggestions are welcome, I would love to hear from you! 

I have also undertaken a new exercise regime, trying to work out at least 3 times a week (as well as forcing myself to take the stairs!) in hope that alongside my foodie changes it will help me on my way.

Over the next couple of months I shall be sharing my journey to achieving a happier, healthier body, so please do not hesitate to get in touch and share your stories if you are going through something similar- don't suffer in silence, I would love to talk.
