Thank you so much....was nice to finally hear your voice as well.

 

I had a crappy couple of days of health with no apparent source -- but today is different -- I woke up with little pain and in a fantastic mood -- it's my birthday and the first one that I haven't felt like s$#& in over ten years!! 

 

It is also bike to work day -- since i have no official job yet -- I took a long route to see Mom and hit four "pit stops" - picked up several tshirts, sd bike route maps, water bottles, green tea, oranges, clif and mojo bars for the honey, chapstick, pencils and tube repair kits -- was having entirely too much fun...felt like a kid trick or treating on a bicycle....got side tracked so stopped back in home for an ice pack and will head out to see Mom now with another out of the way route to hit two more pit stops and pick up the $25 gift card from a somewhat nearby grocery store that I won at the recent celiac awareness tour.

 

Dinner will be grilled chicken salad with yummy fruits and vegies while I watch the new Star Trek -- boys will have popcorn and hubby is sampling the upscale glutenous concessions to give celiac son - that is a new employee there - a report so that said son can be a bit more animated about his opinion of the gluten options when asked by patrons.

- 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.

Every day is a gift. No guarantees. Suck the life out of every day, peeps.

 

That said, the hubs has asked for special pizza tonight and he's gonna get it. And the pizza too.

*snicker*

 

Wacky schedules have led to dinner plans not at all going as planned lately. I was under the impression last night that the class I was covering was over sooner than it was, so my husband microwaved a pizza before I was home. We are trying the burgers and fries thing again tonight. I'll be home when he gets here, there is nothing lurking in the fridge and I am staying away from stores so I don't buy food I shouldn't. Really... we're having burgers tonight. I mean it this time.

Bahaha, I kept reading farther and farther going omg that is SO not on the list! Have fun. :D You're so lucky that we all live so far away or it would be a regular house party!

 

My husband is working until 10 tonight. I may just grill a chicken breast and tell him to bring a bagged salad home. That would involve a little cheating myself because I have a brand new bottle of Brianna's ranch to crack open and there isn't a snowball's chance in hell I'm having a salad without ranch if there is a bottle of it in the house I can have. Ranch is one of my very serious weaknesses.

Brianna's vinaigrette with the strawberry on the bottle, has become our favorite thanks to your suggestion. I try not to look at the other flavors. But I figure that, even if your salad has as many calories as a Big Mac is also has a lot more fiber and vitamins than one.

That one is good too! And the champagne one! Actually, I've never tried one I didn't like. :lol: I just got so excited when I found dressing without crap in it that I started buying all the "safe" ones.

I want it all...and I want it NOW!  just teasing...I do want it all and wish I could pop over....taking a break from studying...edited something out as a few of my classmates know I'm on here....lol

 

Off to hit several grocery stores as our fridge and cupboards are a bit bare -- well bare for our house -- and then take care of a problem at my Mom's -- not sure what is for dinner...probably food ;)

Ok...there is a way to mess up the easy upside down cake.....

 

use round cake pans that have a bottom that is removable -- doh!  at least my kitchen smells like carmel this morning -- not going to be fun to clean out the oven -- will have to wait until later -- off to cram a bit more and play taxi driver.

 

Happy Monday All :)

There should be in mine. It's just that someone always thinks it is there for some nefarious purpose I guess and takes it out. The pineapple upside down cake my husband made for his mother on Mother's Day is still smoking on the bottom of the oven. It is entirely possible I handed him my old springform.  :ph34r:

 

So I am subbing today for a full day and my husband has to leave the house at 2:30 to go to work. That is the same time the afternoon class is over so I won't see him until he gets home at like 10:30. I have been trying all day to talk myself out of going to In N Out on my way home for my dinner. So far after 6 hours I have been unsuccessful. It isn't especially hot here today but I just am really feeling like a vanilla shake.

Driving past the place on my way home is not at all conducive to making it home without fast food. :ph34r:  I guess it was a burger kind of day here too!
