Why on earth would I ever give up dairy?! I am sharing my 8 week journey so far about giving up my favorite food group and WHY. Plus, I had to share these cute pictures of Tana <3

If you follow me on IG and saw my stories on this subject, then here is the back story. If you DON’T follow me on IG, I shared 8 weeks ago that I was giving up dairy for my health. It has been a long time coming that I was in complete and udder (pun unintended but rather hilarious!) denial about.
My sister and husband both have encouraged me for years to get rid of it in my diet. Try telling a cheese obsessor to rid themselves of their most favorite treat, it will result in tears. Trust me.
Fast forward 8 weeks and I am here to say I am so glad I chose to do this. I have never felt better in my life, except when I accidentally eat something with dairy in it. Then I feel the absolute worst. I have never known what normal felt like. Doesn’t everyone’s stomachs hurt whenever they eat?! No, Nicholle. No, they do not. Normal means you aren’t in pain, have aggravating acne (still working on this one), and monstrous headaches all the time. Instead, the headaches come from stress or dairy exposures but that’s ok, it’s much better.
There have been trials and mistakes as I am getting to know a whole new way of eating. Seriously, cheese was an entire food group for me: bread, fruit, vegetables, sugar, milk and eggs, and CHEESE. The trials have been worth it. I would love to share more about this health journey if y’all are interested. This would help if you are looking to lose a little bit of stubborn weight, vegan, allergy, or just curious! Let me know via email, comment, etc.
Why this topic and sharing an athleisure wear look?! Well, taking dairy out of my diet has meant I actually feel good to work out. It has been an amazing change for me. I no longer feel super ill which would make me feel unmotivated to work out. Let’s be real though, the past 2 weeks of starting my new job has made me exhausted and not able to balance working out yet. When I wasn’t in a transition time, I felt amazing and motivated to workout.
The point of all of this is to take your health seriously. No matter what it is.
