I love sports, reading, watching movies and most importantly hanging out with my family. They have gone through so much for me, pre and post diagnosis. My 3 year old daughter means the world to me and loves it when my tummy doesn't hurt.
I always use paper towels for everything! I know its not great for the environment, but I have to be super sure not to get glutened. If I get glutened it better be from a bite of pizza! I wont eat pizza that has gluten and I sure wont use regular dish towels that my family uses.
Today I had 2 handfulls of almonds
1 handfull of peanut M&Ms
Left over ham from Easter with mashed potatoes topped with cheese, sour cream and bacon bits.
I also sauted baby bella mushrooms and asparagus with garlic and butter.
Work out: Body works plus abs class for 1 hour then more abs and arm work for another 1/2 hour.
Overall good day
I had been working out and lost 20 pounds and then after diagnosis I have gained 8 pounds back from diet and lack of exercise. I am currentley working out 5 days a week again and am starting to lose the weight again. Either way life has dramaticallly improved in so many ways that weight is not really to much of a priority. Just staying healthy.
Snack: pinapple tidbits
Lunch: slimfast shake
Dinner: used left over grilled steak to make enchilada's:
Bottom layer of refried beans sprinkled with cheese, then corn tortilla layer, added enchelada sauce to the chopped up steak and cheese very yummy
Dessert: more pinapple
Work out: 30 minutes of abs and 20 minutes cardio
Had another great day!

Best Dinner Ever: GRILLED SIRLOIN STEAK TOPPED WITH SAUTED PORTABELLO MUSHROOMS WITH GARLIC AND BUTTER, AND A SIDE SALAD WITH 1/2 HARD BOILED EGG, CHEESE, TOMATOES AND gluten-free THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING.
