The immediate reason being that I now have the luxury of not having to think about training programmes. All I need to do is follow whatever programme that is running over at the Inner Circle. Saves time and preserves sanity.
But a more pressing reason is because I am developing allergies like nobody's business. I fall sick easily. And nutrition is the missing puzzle in my quest to become the ultimate fitness junkie wannabe.
For starters, I have begun to cook. And I am getting more disciplined in making sure that my food are mostly home-cooked instead of store-bought.
But then again, home-cooked doesn't mean everything is healthy. There are times that I wasn't aware that I was putting myself in harm's way. Like last Sunday when I cooked myself scrambled eggs with cheese and mushroom. The cheese made me scratch like crazy and I couldn't concentrate on anything until I took antihistamines.
I know it was the cheese that did it, because I had no problems with the eggs nor mushrooms beforehand.
So now I am trying to equip myself with knowledge on the kinds of food that would improve my overall health and well being and the kinds that would ensure that I will be dependent on endless rounds of antibiotics, antihistamines and a slew of other medications.
First up is reading all about the Renegade Diet, written by Jason Ferruggia (you don't seem surprised. Why?). I just bought it last weekend and I've read through a few chapters and already I am mesmerized. But I think I will have to read the book at least twice and take down notes so I can do more research.
It's a lovely time to be in nerd-mode.
