Well, the struggle has continued. Ever since last week, I have been unable to get up at 5:30 again, and the power going out in the house last weekend (and lasting until Monday afternoon) put quite a drag on the plan. I am going to mention it to Krista again to see if she wants to restart the plan to get up at 5:30, so we can get a move onto better health.
As far as the discussion on what to begin eating in the post-wheat era, I have begun some research into some lunches that I can eat that don’t contain wheat. The most promising ones generally involve mini-quiches or possibly lettuce wraps. I’m not a huge fan of soup, although that is certainly an option I can do on occasion. One such possibility is the Cauliflower Pizza Bites. While I’m not big on cauliflower, I think I’m going to give it a shot.
On other health-related fronts, my foot is beginning to feel much better, and I’m not waking up with as much soreness on the bottom of my foot. But, my back has been rather sore, mainly from having to lift the garage door to get the cars out when the power was out. It was awfully rough on the lower body, and I’ve paid the price. But, hopefully I should be well enough when I compete in the Corporate Challenge swim meet in a couple of days. As far as running, my goal is to probably begin running again in mid to late July. That’s my early goal, because I want to be able to complete the full 5K next year in the Corporate Challenge.
