38 – A large lapse…

13 07 2010

Well – I went camping for work again. 25 hours of work in 2 days. Exhaustion, wonderful dinner, but too many foods that I haven’t been eating. And WOW – my body could tell. Upset stomach, gaseousness, bloating, edema around my ankles and a headache. I didn’t realize how many headaches I had been having until I realized when I got one this morning that I haven’t had a single headache in the last 5 weeks. I am thinking that it may be the gluten. I didn’t really believe that I would react to gluten, but with all those symptoms, I think I am starting to believe it. I had also noticed that I was getting a small amount of edema around my ankles in the afternoons/evenings for the last year or so. I haven’t noticed it in awhile, but have started to notice it again since I’ve been cheating and eating wheat products. I guess maybe my body is trying to tell me something.

So – the good thing about this, is that I am recommiting to me. I am making this lifestyle change. I may have been struggling, but I know that I can do this. So – starting soon (I have another 12 hour day of work tomorrow…), hopefully by this weekend I will be starting a food journal. But – I’ll chat more about that tomorrow. Now – it is time for CrossFit and bed.

Smiles!

I’m proud of you for listening so intimately to your body! Symptoms speak loads especially when we’ve had a period with out them. Kind of crazy how we can forget how bad it was until it comes back.
You know you’ve got all of my support in going 100% gluten-free! I’m there with you to support you through the physical, the emotional and the mental! It’s a journey you don’t need to take on your own sister!!!!!
I love you and am so inspired and proud of you!!!!
