I think I might hold off coming till this poop thing is sorted :)

It was +12 here yesterday. That is normal. For April. The UK just had the second wettest year since records began. Only missed wettest by an inch or something. That would be great if we didn't keep getting our rivers roads and railroads flooded. I am not complaining.too much though. It is lovely and green here. And not humid, can't do humid, makes me come out in a rash and not breathe. How about a Vegas trip? We could take over a hotel and commandeer the buffet for gluten-free. There are some actual cabanas there too.


- 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.

Sorry, I can't be reached by flattery. And besides, you've not seen me around electronics. Everything I touch turns to poop :huh: Oh well, guess that does make me qualified for the job :P But I still decline, even with chamois leather gloves.

Crap! That means, at the end of this, that I have to keep SUD.

It always turns out like this.

(Ya'll are still welcome down. We'll just leave suck up Danny for driving & emptying our tanks & general banter, occasional banging.)

Leave him.

I know how to do the tanks. I had one of those years ago.

I could do the 80 thing in the winter for a while I suppose. Honestly though, I escaped that hot, humid BS back in PA and there is no way I would volunteer for that again. No way, no how. Bring on the 95 and dry, but hot and humid? Sorry but you'll be on your own. :P

Tonight I almost made tacos. Then I just didn't. Headed out shopping for tomorrow's excursion. Picked up a Costco chicken, some baby carrots and a mango and got everything all packed up in neat little containers in the fridge. I just had a little of the chicken and a mashed potato for supper.

I'll add some fruit leather, some V8 fruit thingers and a camera to my backpack and I am pretty much ready to go tomorrow. I have no idea how I am going to sleep tonight. I'm practically bouncing off the walls as it is. I intend to drop the film off tomorrow for digital developing so hopefully I'll have pics tomorrow night!

Edit: Oh, and we're going out to eat tomorrow. Woo! Rodizio Grill, which is a Brazilian grill sort of thing is amazing and nearly gluten free. The only thing they serve I can't eat is the chicken. They even serve gluten free bread, and always have! And deep fried polenta sprinkled with parm. To die for! They have people (usually good cabana boy candidates) that just bring a never end parade of grilled meat to your table and slice it off for you right there, and grilled pineapple too. Plus a salad bar with killer quinoa salad, and they keep all the gluteny stuff (all like 2 of them, or maybe its just the rolls) away from the gluten-free stuff and have people watching so morons can't walk up with dirty plates or some retarded thing.

Happy Birthday!

Ah... but the remainder of what I did today. Now this involves food. And an endless parade of cabana boys meat servers whose entire night was filled with pleasing me. This is a small taste of the variety you'll get should you ever venture this way. http://www.rodiziogrill.com/about-us One actually slice off a rather large piece of beef then said "sorry it's so large" and went on his way. I completely lost it. :lol:

I enjoyed a few of the rolls, cheesebread made from teff. It is light and fluffy and comes out warm. It melts in your mouth and is just mmmmm.....

Cheesebread_zps7e323bf5.jpg

I had a Brazilian limeade which I never ever go without when I go there. I have a thing for limes. It has just occurred to me, literallly as I type this that I'm not supposed to do citrus. Crap. I foresee a vision problem incoming... and that is all I'm gonna see for a while. :D That little green/red thing behind the glass is how you let the cabana boys know if you want them to keep coming or not. Oh yeah, keep on coming boys.

Limeade_zpsd4138bec.jpg

The real reason I go though? The menu. They don't hand you a menu and say this is what you can eat. They give you this. This is what you can't eat. Sure, it includes most of the desserts. (But they have creme brulee, flan and fresh made ice cream so um... who cares?) A "menu" of what I can't eat the size of most restaurants menus of what I can eat? Yeah, sign me right up!

Her sense of humor is rapier sharp and we are all glad she likes us :lol:

Yeah... Sharp as a spoon most days. And we aren't talking grapefruit spoon either.

Addy, I am so glad you had a fantastic day, what an amazing experience, you look fab. I can't get over that menu,, amazing.

Edited to add, I wonder if love2 could sort the rest of that menu out to be gluten-free too, just for the heck of it?!

Me again, popping in while you all sleep (maybe except mushroom). I am not allowed to weigh myself during the whole30 but I did just have to make a new hole in my belt :) :) :) .

While I am doing it for health primarily, I am more than happy to lose a few pounds on the way.

I am visiting a dietitian this week, I will have to try and look away when they weigh me...

You're doing great, W30 buddy!!

I do not wear belts, so I have no clue what's going on.

I am sleeping better, but I am also having w/d symptoms and my joint pain is through the roof.

I miss half and half in my coffee and I miss "happy hour" but, I'll do anything to dump some of this pain.

I have been reassured by Ski and a few others that we will be fine in a few days.

Having done this no grains, legumes, dairy thing before, I recall the first few days were "wonky", so I push on.

Dinner tonight:

Roasted chicken

Sauteed chard

sweet potato for me

and yukon golds for the hubs
