Remember how I felt oh-so-lazy last night? Nicole ended up giving me a call to chat. After 10 minutes of phone gossip, I realized we could continue the conversation on a run (we live next door to each other), so I asked if she wanted to head out. She said yes, and we ended up running 4.3 miles together!
I havenâ€™t run more than 3.0 miles since April so this was quite a feat! We ended up doing walk/run intervals for the last 1.3 miles since I was nervous that the mileage jump would affect my knee. But all was well.
Arenâ€™t running buddies THE BEST?! Serious dose of motivation and fun.
Came home and made a post-run snack, and then I crashed hard â€“ we didnâ€™t get back until 9:30 PM!
For breakfast, I cooked up a Grilled Elvis.
And for lunch, the Husband made a lovely tempeh and hummus sandwich.
Both meals featured slices of Glutino Flax Seed Bread. When we went shopping on Saturday, I stocked up on lot of gluten-free bread and pasta alternatives. They really werenâ€™t THAT much more expensive than the normal stuff. I realized last week that if I am going to try to eat less gluten per my test results, I have to find some GF alternatives of my â€˜normalâ€™ foods, like bread, or I will starve to death.
I really liked Glutino! It pretty much tasted like normal bread, especially toasted.
A few people have noticed if Iâ€™ve felt any changes since cutting back on gluten. Given that my sensitivity wasnâ€™t very serious, I havenâ€™t felt any drastic changes. Iâ€™m hoping the magic is happening on the inside, though.
Oh, and hereâ€™s a house hunting update. After Fridayâ€™s news, I have finally reached a point where I feel like the honey badger. I just donâ€™t give a sh*t. Heh.
What will be, will be.
