Day 4 - DONE
Day 5 - DONE
Day 6 - DONE
Not a single cheat my little lovebugs! Not ONE! I haven't had gluten in my body for 6 days!
I won't go through my entire menus for the days because if you haven't seen a pattern and guessed it - I'm a huge repeat eater. I mean I eat the same things most every day and never tire of it.
Sooo the last 3 days have had the normal - eggs, tilapia or chicken, potatoes, gravy and broccoli.
A few new things were gluten-free bagel chips, cheese slices, air popped popcorn AND cool ranch Doritoes!
Yup - I said Doritoes!!! Boo-yah!!! I'm happier than a grasshopper with two dicks!
Other than the soda (I know, I know), in 6 days I have ONLY had two starbursts in the form of sugar as far as candy and chocolate. This, my friends, is UNHEARD of.
I can eat entire LARGE bags of candy daily. I'm pretty much a sugar addict. It's crazy pants really.
Oh and get this - my family ordered out pizza. Pizza. You know - that stuff that I want to make blankets out of and wrap up in and eat myself silly? And me? I had none. I didn't even smell it. I stayed out of the room and left for girl's night. I can tell you without a doubt that never in my life do I recall turning down pizza. It nearly gave me a coronary.
On to any mental and physical changes I've noticed:
Day 4 - after being out until 3am - I got up at 8am without a migraine and not exhausted. Seriously people - this occurrence is cuh-razy. Never, ever after being out until 3am would I first of all - get back up at 8am much less NOT have a migraine or need a nap by noon. I am floored. Just floored.
My upper abs are losing their swelling - slowly but surely. I have not felt flu-ish or sick after eating once.
Again, unheard of for me.
I am clear-headed. On track and feeling good.
Day 6 found me feeling a little worn down - BUT - I know that it's due to my both my girls having the flu and I'm not getting the proper sleep. Sooo - disappointing as it is - I got a migraine this day. Pain pill kicked it. I'm counting it as a success because normally - I'd have had a migraine 3 days in a row and so far - it's one and it's gone.
Rage on my G-free friends.
