I have been stuck inside this week, I ran 2x on the treadmill. OMG is that boring. I even tried watching netflix on the second run, but the reality is, the monotony is too much when the scenery isn't going by.
I did 25 minutes of Just Dance 4 with my daughter last night. I think I'll work that in more often, it was fun, she likes it too, and I really want her to move more.
Been avoiding wheat for about a week now. It's going ok. I missed 2 times (both times on cupcakes, how odd, I would never seek out a cupcake, but the opportunity arose twice in one week). There was a bit of awkwardness with my wife, as there always is with change. She suggests we order pizza, or she offers me toast, I say no thank you, and she says, "Oh that's right, I'm so sorry, I shouldn't have offered that." My anxiety at trying something new, plus her anxiety to be supportive, plus the kids asking, why are you not eating wheat? equals making it kind of a "big deal"...ugh, I don't want the extra attention, and then I get a bit cranky about it...change is hard.
The real question is, do I feel better? Well of course I do. I've been tracking and staying within my ranges for the most part for 3 weeks. I've lost 6.5 lbs. since 1/7. I'm drinking mostly water (and wine), I'm exercising most every day. How can I judge the wheat vs. other factors?
Well, it's not a scientific experiment and I did completely pass up chocolate chip cookies and brownies at the family gathering on Monday (belated Christmas celebration). Of course I substituted peanut m&ms, but I controlled my portion and tracked it.
Looking forward to warmer weather (not asking for much, just above 25 degrees by 6:30 a.m.)
