IDK you guys, sounds like the sort of thing that could be contagious. :P

 

I managed to get my mint in pots and all three (short) rows of corn in the ground tonight. My husband probably thinks I'm a little weird for gardening barefoot. Oh well, he can think what he likes. I like walking in the dirt in my bare feet.

Well, you got THAT from me. :D  I have always played in the yard barefoot. And I have the bee stings to prove it.

What can I say? I hate shoes. (not a girlie thing to say, I know) 

 

Going back to the gym today (although lugging things up the stairs for 5 hours and hurling them over my head into the dumpster  sure seemed as if I were at the gym the last few days) and then, the monthly BJs run (oh boy!) and then, my workout with the PT/MT and then, to Sherry Lynn's Gluten Free cafe. Yup, all G F all the time. I am so lucky to have her nearby and to call her my friend. I am trying to convince her she needs to open a franchise in Florida, Colorado, Kansas, Utah, California etc.........

 

Dinner tonight will be: whatever we do not finish for lunch. Her son gives us portions the size of Texas. And I hold him entirely responsible for my postDX weight gain (because I certainly did not shove those Boston cream  donuts, carrot cake cupcakes, cinnamon raisin bagels and almond cookies down my throat)

I have self-control. :ph34r:

Hubs is working tonight til 8 so we have a very small window to eat and get out of the house. Burgers and fries and out the door when he gets home. It may not be healthy, but it will get us through our night. I forgot to get up early to do errands before the middle of the day. Oops. :ph34r: I guess I can go this evening before dinner.

 

Last night I was standing in the kitchen in my bare feet covered in dirt. My shirt, my pants, my super dirty feet and I managed an epic belch. My husband was like way to be lady like. I just looked down at myself and and back at him and asked if I really look like a lady. :lol:

 

And there really is something magically special about being in the grass and dirt in bare feet. I don't think my husband understands because his mother probably never let him be outside barefoot after he was 9. :( I'm not sure he would find it wise to be out without shoes at this point which may be wise but is still sad.

Thanks for everyone's good wishes about my Mum. For what it is worth, I went for an approach of slow drip feed, transforming my health, and major emotional blackmail, when I told her as I couldn't get a diagnosis, but if she did, it might help if the kids ever needed it. Not proud, but desperate and happy.

Dinner is whatever goes out of date today.

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

When i was younger i always went barefoot. I learned how to run quickly across the dark road in 90 degree heat. When i moved, however, the area  i lived in was really rocky so i couldn't really do it.

 

Pasta tonight. Very little time on my hands.

Mothers have been emotionally blackmailing their children for untold centuries. Besides, in the words of every mother who has ever done this to her child... "its for your own good!" :lol:

Skipped dinner for the past couple of nights...some sort of allergy type fun prevented normal life....am feeling a bit better after resting this morning so I think ill make something nice for the men....steak, oven fries and asparagus with some kind of desert.

High point from the past few days....on my biology field trip the other day I had the Professor's ear so I was teasing him a bit about there being no As in his class...I suggested that I didn't think his computer was calculating grades correctly .... and I was right!!! The formulas for weighting tests was wrong....everybody's grade went up 4-10%. The old chick in class is now the hero :)

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

Old chicks rock! ;)  hope you feel better ASAP.

 

Making bison stuffed peppers, fresh green beans and sitting down after a week of more hard work and declaring it's "miller time". A startlingly cold bombay sapphire on the rocks with a few olives...ah, that's the ticket!

Histamine be damned.

 

Whew. All done. I even mowed the front lawn (which takes an hour) and I am feeling smug (despite banging my head on the half open garage door this morning--thanks dear hubs, I'm challenged enough without setting up land mines for me LOL ) and then, nearly poking my eye out with a tree branch as I ducked under the pin oak.

 

I should get hazard pay.

I rethought last night's plans. I forgot I had grabbed a pork loin at the store on sale so I just threw that in the oven for dinner. Tonight we'll do burgers because I'm subbing a night class and won't be home til about 9ish. I have no interest in anything that takes more effort than my counter grill and microwave tonight.

 

You should get extra credit for being generally awesome. B)

 

And most of us should get hazard pay just for getting out of bed. :lol:
