I started playing hockey back in September and can wholeheartedly say that it is one of the best things I have ever done. I had never picked up a hockey stick in my life so it was quiet daunting to say the least. The club I am playing for is fantastic though, I have never been made to feel stupid or shite at training, and most importantly I am having such a laugh!! We train twice a week for 90 minutes and play a match every Saturday - this has defo been keeping me fit over the past few months. If there is a team sport you have always been itching to play I urge you to take the few brave steps and give it a go, you wont regret it.
Food wise I've been trying to stick to gluten free foods for the past few weeks as I've started to finally listen to my body and things like white bread really make me feel like shite! Its been pretty easy i have opted for gluten free porridge, have not been eating bread, replaced regular flour with gluten free or coconut flour, and the world of google has provided me with fantastic recipes.
Going dairy free was a decision I made purely for aesthetic purposes. I have read in numerous places that dairy may aggravate/cause acne and mine is pretty bad again at the moment so I've cut out things like yogurts, drinking glasses of milk with my lunch, have switched to alpro soya for porridge and tea/coffee. I do miss cheese a little bit but sure I'll get over that, and I'm not going to kill myself with guilt if I do have some.
Otherwise on the food front I've been eating as clean as possible, roughly following paleo guidelines. I've been sticking pics up Instagram, you can follow me coco_oscarwells if you like!
I'd love to hear what you are all up to fitness and food wise so please feel free to share in the comments section below :)
