I had a babysitter yesterday so I was able to get out and run TONS of errands and just be by myself. Holy Moly, that helped SOOOOO much! I was gone from 10-5 and when I got back the girl who was watching my kiddos was cleaning all the windows and had cleaned up the dishes as well. Such a nice surprise.
The wheat thing is hard. Monday I did great all day and then we went to dinner at a friend's house. Still fine, as we had ribs, mashed potatoes and salad. Then for dessert she served brownies. I didn't have one for a long time, then wanted a bite with my coffee. I had a bite without even realizing/thinking it had wheat in it. Whatever, not a huge deal.
Then Tuesday came along and I was stressed out hardcore. It is very weird, but when I have my shake or eat meat for breakfast it doesn't keep me full long, and it feels like I get low blood sugar really easily. So then I grab whatever is handy and it's usually a piece of bread or crackers or something.
Anyway, I'm giving myself a PASS on the whole wheat thing for now. I can tell it's the straw that will break the camel's back if I stress about it, and it's not THAT important. I am definitely going to do the best I can to limit how much I eat, but I'm not going to go all Nazi on myself.
I am taking mega doses of Vitamin D, and I think I can tell they are starting to help. Also, I'm cramping and bloated so hopefully my monthly business will hurry up and start and then leave me alone again. :-D
Only 2.5 weeks until the Big Move!!! I'm getting really excited, and not letting myself think about everything I'm leaving, otherwise I will cry all day. So I'm focusing on the new house and getting everything put away in my mind... thinking of where I want everything to go.
My kids are fighting like banshees, so that's my cue to get off the computer. Thanks for all the kind and encouraging words!
