I didn't post on Friday because I was very, very busy cleaning my house from top to bottom.
This morning a miracle happened. No, little elves didn't come and stock my fridge with healthy and nutritious food, we didn't win the lottery and I didn't magically lose these last 15 pounds. ;-)
But what happened was even better than all of that.
My boys slept until SEVEN O'CLOCK!!!!!! SEVEN!!!!!!
I woke up singing praises to the good Lord and grinning gleefully at Josh because we'd both gotten a good night's sleep for the first time in a very long time.
It makes such a huge difference!
Josh sent me to a youth retreat for the morning, I got to have coffee with Jen, was very encouraged by God's Word and have been resting since I came home.
Yesterday was my first full day of being wheat free since before Valentine's Day. I felt good all day, but then ended up getting very ill and throwing up at bedtime. I think I overdid it, because I seriously accomplished SO much housework, and didn't eat enough calories.
I had a handful of almonds, tuna fish with veggie chips and avocado, and then rice crackers with cheese. And a 20 ounce americano. And lots of water. Oh and an Almond Joy.
Today I'm doing well, as far as wheat free goes. I'm giving it a full week this time to see how it affects my weight. I'm also doing well with my water intake, but need to stick with it throughout the week.
I don't feel any better; in fact I feel fairly awful. I have a pounding headache and no energy. I'm hoping my body is just detoxing and that I'll start to feel amazing real soon. :-)
As you can see, I'm clearly focusing on cutting out wheat but not so much sugar. I'll work my way up to that.
I'll be back in the morning with a weigh-in.
