I hope everyone had a fabulous Passover week/Easter weekend (if you celebrate). This week has been filled with Easter candy for me. But thankfully, weight wise, I'm holding steady--so far. I'm waiting to pay the piper. Anywhoo, I'm coming to realize that I really do have a gluten sensitivity. There was the whole magical moment of realizing I wasn't sweating when I went gluten free, but I've also noticed that I'm not sinusy, and even though the scale hasn't budged, I look skinnier--bloat be gone. Total TMI, my poo looks funny though. Has anyone else had this happen to them after following a GF diet?
Going GF has had it's pitfalls though. I've eaten some bread, or a biscuit here or there, and I feel really gross afterward. And then the sweating starts again. And the bloat is instant. Which is nasty. I have so many incentives to stay away from the wheat, but it just tastes so damn good. I'm not quite sure how to get past that. I just keep trying to focus on how good I feel without it.
As for challenges this week. Easter presented me with a "Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit", that I delightfully indulged in, and subsequently felt like crap. But I didn't eat the pie. Instead, I ate about 9 bazillion Nestle Crunch Mini Eggs and Reese's Pieces Eggs. But I'm moving on. I didn't drink nearly enough water, so I need to resume my hydration routine. I'm getting back to working out this week. Strength training helps with the hormonal craziness. With that, I'm off to do some Jillian Michaels!
