Wheat Free

Sorry about all of the toes posts and what not. My bad.

So this weekend. Was not good. I went overboard yesterday big time. Including a huge turkey sandwich from Heidi's with a crapload of mayo, chips and salsa, a bean burrito, and some ice cream. My mom and the boy have the same birthday, which happens to be on Tuesday, so we all went out for dinner to celebrate last night. I know I should be able to indulge on special occasions, but the food wasn't even that good and we're doing another dinner on Tuesday where the food WILL be really good so I should have saved my bad day for Tuesday. I tried to get back on the wagon today but I definitely see a gain in my future.

The good news is, I did go shopping tonight for lots of wheat free foods. I'm going to give this a shot this week. No sugar, no wheat. I can have corn, rice, popcorn, and all kinds of other grains, just not wheat. We'll see how it goes. I'm going to try to write out a meal plan tonight for the week, so wish me luck. I'll check in here and let you guys know how it goes.

By the way, I went to the doc on Friday and he did a crapload of bloodwork, so I should know what is going on with my toes by the end of this week. He definitely suspects arthritis and gave me some meds to help the swelling go down. I'm feeling much better now, good enough to go work out today, but I had to cut my run a little short because they were beginning to hurt again.

Going wheat free can be pretty overwhelming to start - but there are tons of things you can eat. The problem is that it is impossible to think of those things when all you are thinking is, "Wheat! Wheat! Wheat!"

Not that they are healthy, but M&M's were wheat free last I checked. ;)

Best of luck! I'm glad to hear you're feeling better with the meds. :)
