I live in a house with three grown men. I know I’ve told Ya’ll that.
My husband, Sean.
My two sons, Alex Michael (he’s 24) and Montana (he’s 18 in like…24 hours).
These guys love their gluten.
They are incredibly, unbelievably, supremely supportive of my Celiac diagnosis.
And living here…they are affected daily by this situation. Nevertheless, I hear this sort of thing a lot….
I love gluten…I could never give it up~
If I was diagnosed with Celiac, I don’t think I would change anything. I’d still eat it. I love gluten too much~
gluten is delicious. I don’t know how you do it~
You get the drift…
Well, here’s how I do it.
1. I personally think it helps that I’ve had Chronic Migraines. Because it means I know how to live without and be okay with that.
2. I also have Hypothyroidism (incredibly common with people with Celiac…they go very much hand in hand). Again, many food issues. So I it’s important to watch your nutrition.
and the most important of all…
3. Attitude. I live without caffeine, chocolate and alcohol… but really, I don’t even notice those things. I’ve been without them for so long. So just one more situation of nutrition adjustment is not a real surprise, it’s just like I said. An adjustment. You can get the diagnosis and curl up in a ball …
or you can start your research into how you can make this fit into your life with ease and simplicity, causing as little disruption to your family as possible. Attitude is everything. Your attitude will affect everyone around you. Make the change a positive one.
On a side note: I don’t actually love to cook, but I CAN cook and I think I’m pretty decent at it. I had at one time planned on throwing some recipes on here and never got it done. I’m feeling pretty good now and may actually pull this off.
I made enchiladas last night and did not get any photos or anything. But I will try and start this week, because I am pretty good at throwing a fast gluten free meal together that I think makes everyone happy.
My sister Catherine is addicted to Pinterest.
She sent me this:
Everybody should have a Catherine in their life.
I died laughing when I read that…
Anyone else notice Mother Teresa has a sister, Catherine. No…you can’t make this up. No, my mom didn’t do that on purpose. I know this because there’s a Jeanette, too. 🙂
I did Yoga tonight and OH MY GOSH I LOVE IT>
I bought a new DVD a few weeks ago. I picked up Bob Harper’s Inside Out Method- Yoga for the Warrior
I tried to link this and it didn’t like me. But it’s a great little youtube video to give you and idea.
I will try and review this tomorrow but a mini review this is as follows:
I love this DVD so much.
It’s 63 minutes. I started it late so I only did it for like….35 minutes or so but it was addictive and I wanted to go on.
It’s a great fun yoga workout and my legs feel it. SO awesome.
Yes, yes it is.
