So, I’ve been realizing that although my eating habits aren’t bad: I eat fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk, whole grains etc, however I’ve noticed myself still being bloated and my stomach is upset a lot of the time. My doctor thinks that I may be lactose intolerant or allergic to gluten “or both or neither” so for the next month she wants me to try the Paleo Diet. The Paleo Diet for those of you who don’t know is basically only eating what our ancestors would eat before agriculture. So basically I get to eat meat (the leaner the better), fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, etc.
I have to cut out a number of things
Partially Hydrogenated Oils
Really the only thing that will be really hard for me is potatoes. And we are allowed coconut and almond milk so I will be enjoying those things.
A friend of mine tried this diet and lost 9 inches off her waist in 1 week and her grandpa’s diabetes is in control now because of this diet but honestly I just hope I can enjoy a meal without being up all night with an upset stomach.
I’ll be posting an update on my Paleo diet and college soon and if you have any suggestions or questions for me about the diet please let me know!
So a few quick things before I discuss my 3rd fit test.
I visited my school for orientation last week and chose all of my classes. I’m so excited for all my classes and will be switching my major, I’m not sure what I’ll be changing it to yet, but after orientation I realized that business is not for me.
The day before I left for California, my family and I went to the beach and although I did apply SPF75 sunscreen my back was burnt to a crisp. I was so uncomfortable on the plane and could barely walk Sunday and Monday night so I didn’t work out those two days. I’m upset with myself but I was in so much pain getting that extra work out wasn’t worth it. I did however get more than 10,000 steps both of those days. So, it’s not like I laid on my butt I just couldn’t put a sports bra on and do vigorous exercising.
Anyway, here are my 3rd attempt at the fit test results.

Hello dear friends, it is 12:48 am here where I live and I’m sleepless (not in Seattle). My body is on some wacked up sleeping schedule where I sleep until noon which is fab, however I’m up until the wee hours of the morning which is far less than great. So… what better thing to do at this time than blog?
A little update on Insanity: I completed week 1 of insanity however I am doing week one over (I’m on day 5 already) because I wanted to see if I could push myself more and take fewer breaks which as a matter of fact, I can. That’s really it. I even did the fit test again and my results already skyrocketed which I’m beyond excited about.
An update on my weight: I weighed myself on Saturday June 20th and weighed 185 pounds which is 8 pounds lighter than the last time I weighed myself (the end of May I think??) so also very proud of myself too.
College update: I will be visiting my college in Southern California in less than a month due to the fact that my registration and orientation date is July 20th. My dad and I fly out on the 19th in the morning, get oriented on the 20th, and leave the night of the 21st. Which is super fun I just hope to not get sunburnt while I’m out there. I am going into international business with a minor in spanish and biology focusing on zoology. My goal in life is to travel and work with animals or travel and own a lot of animals: preferably both. So after orientation I’ll probably share my class load on here. I am moving cross-country so we will be flying but PRAISE Bed Bath and Beyond for being phenomenal and letting me order things online and shipping right to their location closest to my University. Such a life saver.
I’m very excited for college however it hasn’t hit me that I’m going so far away and that everything will be different once August 19th hits. But I hope I’m ready for this change and I look forward to this new chapter in my life.
Good afternoon bloggers. look at me actually posting. Very proud of myself. Any who, I started the day off sort of right by waking up at 715 (natural thing that happens every year because I was born at 7:21 in the morning). I made myself a yummy breakfast quesadilla and checked my phone loving all of the tweets, texts, and instagram posts my friends were sending me. It’s a great feeling knowing that I have so many wonderful memories with so many people.
after that I was given a beautiful painting by my younger sister. She painted what Rapunzel always paints of herself watching the floating lanterns
It’s so beautiful and I’m very excited to put it in my dorm room. I then got a knock on my door and it was an old lady carrying flowers addressed to me. I opened them up and inside was a beautiful bouquet of lilies, roses, peonies, and carnations and a note from my boyfriend. Major brownie points for picking all of my favorite flowers too.
Then I finished insanity Day 3, showered and will be heading out with friends a bit later.
So very thankful to be 18 and to have so many lovely people in my life.
