Wheat-(Mostly) Free and the Summertime Abyss

I will admit that I haven’t gone completely wheat free since my last post on the subject.  Sunday, while out with my son, we went to Burger King and I had a Chicken sandwich, which came on a bun…and this morning I had a half of a bottom piece of a bagel.  I’m still down about 2 lbs from a week ago, so for the most part, I’m doing well.  I just have to try to make the best choices I can when choosing to eat out.

As far as everything else, I’m doing alright.  I still haven’t began my running program yet, but I’ve been doing some research here and there.  Next week is vacation (actually it’s probably more like basement project week), so I’ll probably begin my running program after that week.

The sunburn is gone now at this point, but the spot where the blister is at is pretty dry, so I’ve got to moisturize that.  I hope y’all are doing great.  I wish you a safe July.


The Wheat-Free Life is around the corner

Another week has gone by, and I’m getting my mind right on preparing for the new wheat-free era which begins this weekend.  The hardest part, I believe, is getting mentally prepared to say no to bread.  The anticipation of it is kind of hard, but I think I’ll be ready.  I certainly hope that it will cause a big change.  While it may not be dramatic as far as weight loss (although I’d certainly like to see that too), the switch over to eating more fruits & vegetables may cause digestive changes, which could be a shock to the system.  We’ll have to see what happens…it’s exciting, yet scary all at the same time.

I felt a very minor twinge in the bottom of my foot this morning, so I know I’m not completely ready yet to begin any type of running program, but I’m hoping that it will subside by the middle of next month, so I can get going.  I’m itching to begin it, because I think that, of anything, will help me feel better, because right now, I find my energy to be lacking.  I know Krista says she feels better, because she’s been walking more, but that doesn’t seem to be enough for me.  I feel okay, but I don’t want to just feel okay.  I want to feel great.  I think running may be able to do that for me.

Next week’s post will be after the start of the wheat-free period, I’ll let you how it’s going.  I know there probably won’t be any significant results to that point, but I think it’s important to get out my thoughts on it to reinforce it.  Here’s to having a great week!
