I Survived...

my first week of being gluten free. I feel like its going pretty good. I'm eating better quality food (except for Chex cereal, Fritos and Diet Coke, which are all gluten free!!). I eat more REAL food and that is fantastic. Lots of fruits and veggies and meat.

I do however, eat A LOT of dairy. I ate a whole block of cheese by myself this week. YUM!! Although I am wondering if I shouldn't give that up too. I eat dairy and my belly starts blubbering. Oh well, one step at a time.

I can't say that I feel better, although, I do seem to be able to get more done at work. That's always nice! I still HATE getting up in the morning...does anyone know if there is a cure for that?!??!! That I would pay good money for!! (not to mention my poor husband that hates me until about 10:00am!)

Not much else to report here right now. We are starting to buy things for the grandbaby on the way. Planning our trip to Salt Lake City. You know...the usual.. BLECH!

For anyone intersted, here's my chart for your viewing pleasure. I love hearing what people thing about it and any ideas they have.

Yes, yes you will notice a severe lacking of (I)s. We were both sick during the fertile time last month. And what's the use of doing the deed if its not to make a baby?! HAHAHA! My poor poor poor DH!


  1. What made you decide to go gluten-free and not dairy-free as well? I know Sew and TCIE have talked about those being the two groups of food that most people have intolerances to. I wonder if you also cut that out, if you wouldn't start feeling better? I'm 6 weeks into gluten-free and dairy-free and I'm down 7 pounds! I have PCOS, but my body seems to be loving this. It is hard, but it's doable.

    It's a struggle for me to get up in the morning as well. I wonder if it's the adrenals or thyroid??

    Also, when are you heading to SLC?

  2. The beginning is always the hardest!!! Yay gf!!!

  3. i agree...i'm at 3 weeks now and its getting a lot easier once i get into some habits. good job!!
