Back on track with gluten free living
Friday, November 02, 2012
So it is a new month and this month we celebrate Thanksgiving. I was feeling really anxious about trying to get back on track with my gluten free lifestyle because of the upcoming holidays. I had to remind myself that this is not just me on a diet, or me trying something new. I feel like crap, my body hurts, my weight loss has stalled, I am tired all the time...my gluten intolerance is kicking my ass and the only person allowing it is me. I did great for 6 months and then relapsed (yes, like an addict...I had one taste and was stuck). So I asked my mom and grandmother if they minded doing a gluten free thanksgiving. I should really be dairy free as well, but one thing at a time, right? Anyway, they agreed to it and that made me also decide that if they are willing to do this huge adjustment for me I need to be willing to get back on track. So today was day 2 of being back to gluten free. So far I feel ok. And today was my first day back in the gym in 9 days. The hurricane, halloween, and a few other things messed up my gym schedule but now I am good to go. :)
Well, that is all for now. Just wanted to reaffirm my commitment to gluten free living. Next up will be dairy again and corn...yes, I have allergies to both and yet I torture myself by eating it.
