Wonderfully Wheat Free!

It’s been quite a hectic week around the household.  We’re still in our wheat-less world, and I really haven’t noticed any significant difference to this point, outside of the fact that I’ve lost around 4 lbs in the last week (down to about 236), but I’m not sure how much of that is attributed to actually being wheat-free…but I’l take it.  Our lunches have consisted of the Cheesy Sausage Quiche and the Cauliflower Pizza Bites.  While the Pizza Bites were okay, as far as I was concerned, my wife did not seem to be too hot on it.  However, the Cheesy Sausage Quiche was significantly better…I used Apple Chicken Sausage with it, and it was pretty darn tasty.  Next on the palate will probably be the Tuna Melt Stuffed Tomatoes.  I didn’t follow any of these recipes to a tee, necessarily, but I did substitute them where I could to make them dairy free as well as gluten free.

Turning to the sunburn front, it was a pretty bad one.  I had a huge blister on my right knee.  It was just about one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen.  It blew up like a balloon.  It’s gone away now, but I’m leaving my DNA everywhere I go, because I’m peeling so bad.  I need to remind myself to never do this again.  Although it has diverted attention away from my left foot, which seems to be doing great now.  I anticipate starting to walk/run again here in a few weeks.  Once that starts, I’ll be rolling!  Urrr, I guess I’ll be running, not rolling.  LOL!

I hope you all take care of yourself riding this heat wave (it’s supposed to be 95 today here) and stay cool!



The struggle continues…

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.
