Haven't updated in a while...
I seem to developing more food intolerances.
So far, I have discovered I have a peanut allergy---fructose intolerance going on too. This is what I have discovered between right before Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Must say going gluten free is way easier than dealing with the possibility of fructose intolerance. It isn't just limiting stuff to no fructose on a label of a can or box. It means alot more than that.. IE) Fruits and veggies have alot of fructose in them...Add that with no gluten, it can be rather hard to find out what I can eat. I am contemplating finding a shake mix I can use, so it's less of a struggle when it comes to eating...
I am still trying to learn what the new intolerances mean for my diet. How can I eat and quickly with all these intolerances/allergies? I haven't had the energy to cook, so my meals haven't been all they could be. They have probably been pretty crummy, but it's still food that I was able to eat. It's easier to go for the things that don't satisfy. Maybe, in time--I will learn to deal and eat within the boundaries that I am given as far as food goes. I am in the process of hopefully making some things for me to eat during the week. I just hope I am able to make it all today like I am wanting to. It is only a couple things, but it may help me to be able to go through the week with more food that is only needing to be reheated.
I am almost at 190. I have exactly 2 pounds to go. Then, my new goal will be to get to 180. I have lost 40 pounds to date since March.
I was able to start back working out on Tuesday (New Years Day). I started working out right after Thanksgiving, but took a week or so off before starting back. My routine changed greatly. I have began making use of the treadmill.. I am still trying to learn to listen to my body, but do what I can to work out some. My ipod has been an asset. It helps me to shift my focus. It isn't about walking or cycling, but it is a time where I can worship my Father as I listen to songs praising Him or listening to the Bible through the podcasts I have.
