Wheat IS the plague!

Oh my goodness. Yesterday I didn't eat wheat all day. Until dinner.

I made spaghetti and garlic bread for dinner. I hadn't eaten wheat all day, and wasn't planning to eat this meal. The bread smelled so good, that I had a piece.

My stomach INSTANTLY went into overdrive. Cramping, aching, bloating, gas. It was crazy. And now I know.


It hurt long into the night, which is weird because I've eaten wheat before without a response like that. But anyway, that's it for me and wheat. We're done. Over. Done. ;-)

Other than that things are going really well. I am getting stuff around the house done, eating on plan and feeling pretty good.

This coming weekend is going to be a whirlwind packing/purging extravaganza. It's the only free weekend we have before our actual move date! I'm looking forward to it, even though I know it's going to be busy and crazy.

I'm really looking forward to being moved into the new place and getting some routines going. My hope is to put Kate in morning kindergarten so I can drop her off at school, hit the gym, shower and then be done in time to pick her up on my way home. Sounds perfect, no? :-D

We'll see how everything ends up working out. I don't have my treadmill anymore as I gave it to my SIL. It was really hurting my SI joint to use it, and she desperately wanted it, I desperately didn't want to move it, so it all worked out nicely.

Not much more going on around here. I hope to get back into full-on weight loss mode once we're settled in from our move. I'd love to see the scale start moving down again, and hopefully have it be a pound or two a week that is coming off.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

  1. what is weird and if you are allergic or celiac your reaction to it can be all over the place...one day you might get super sick the next day only mild symptoms. Same with me.

    Also did you know that if your body cannot handle wheat....it stores it as fat because it cannot use it properly. I read that somewhere. I also read that if you cannot handle wheat, your body had trouble absorbing other nutrients too because it's constantly overloaded and in overdrive trying to RID you of the wheat in your system! So usually people with food sensetivities are quite malnourished all the while not looking so because they are oevrweight. I wish I remembered where I read this...in snippets here and there n the internet.
