March 4, 2011 by Leanne Vogel July 21, 2015I’ve been a busy bee these last 6 weeks! I’ve been going through rounds of blood and allergy testing in an attempt to try and figure out what’s happening with my body. To explain [in short]: my blood sugar is regularly low, I have a fuzzy brain a lot of the time, the repair time after my workouts is abnormally long, I have hunger pains all the time no matter what I eat, I’ve developed bad skin over the past 6 months, and my energy levels aren’t where they should be. The list goes on, but you get the idea. I shouldn’t be having all of these symptoms when I’m treating myself with whole foods, exercise, plenty of water, sleep, and love. So, when we welcomed 2011, I decided my year was going to be dedicated to unraveling my health and building it up nice and tight. If I’m going to go through an intense health journey this year, I’m going take you all with me! As of yesterday, I’m confident that the decisions I’m making will lead me to achieving the best health I’ve ever been in. The plan is finally starting to come together. I will share more details and updates in a blog post over the weekend. We’ll chat about what it was like eating gluten for 2 weeks in February, my test results, fears, challenges, and next steps. I’m happy to say that every ingredient in this bowl of deliciously creamy spaghetti is safe for me to eat, phewf! But the same cannot be said for the breakfast I’m planning tomorrow. I just need bananas one more time before I say bye for awhile.
