my weekend was good, and I give God the glory
Friday afternoon, the five of us took off for Calgary. We survived! That sure is a large city to figure out how to get around in. But we made it. I went to the church that Mark Gungor was speaking in while the rest of the family window-shopped i... Read more
nice day today
Despite its cloudiness, I might add.
I am struggling with a number of things, but it's still a nice day. For instance, despite being wheat-less, and having lost weight during that first week of eliminating it, I gained weight anyway. I stru... Read more
But if not . . .
Well . . . I keep coming to this blog and not being sure what to type about. So, I guess I'll be random. At the moment, the battery for my mouse is being recharged, so I'm having to function with just my keyboard. Dude, is it ever challenging, I... Read more
so yesterday was an even longer day
It rained all blinking day. The clouds were oppressive and the rain was unending. So I wound up staying in the house all day. Time went by very slowly. I guess my teensy portion of the earth was in mourning too.
Had a harder time getting to... Read more
yesterday was a long day
I'm finding it difficult to blog these days. It's a mix of a couple reasons, I suppose. One, the days don't really bring much in the way of changes. And other things are just personal but dull. It means something to me but might be dull to other... Read more
Another small kick in the shins.
Mr. Sonoran WAS going to have temporary work. A bit of a desk job to help an account get caught up on some paperwork. I know, just a little bit of a job that wouldn't last long or earn much. But it would have been something to put on the resume,... Read more
Yes, wheat is bad for everyone.
The genetics of wheat have been changed. Its genetics, in fact, have been extensively changed using techniques that include hybridization, repeating backcrossing (to winnow out specific characteristics like short height or seed head size), embry... Read more
14 days of going against the grain.
I probably didn't quite start off the way I wanted. First, I still made myself oatmeal for the better part of the first week. I halved the amount after that, and a couple days later, didn't have any. Oatmeal is a grain and spikes the blood sugar... Read more
Okay, so I think I'll give it a shot.
I've finished reading the Wheat Belly book. He used copious amounts of science to back up the damage wheat does to one's health. I'm convinced enough to at least try going without for 2-4 weeks to see what the results are.
Something that in... Read more
Eeek! Scary (but intriguing) new ideas coming my way.
It started thanks to Spark People. They had an article on sugar addiction and how to be free of it. Or something along those lines. When I first saw the title, I did that squinty-eye scrutinizing expression. Good night, but did I ever dig a bit ... Read more
Another 1st anniversary!
I bought my pedometer one year ago, and it has not been apart from me since. Save for when I'm sleeping, natch.
I commemorated the day by walking the furthest south I've ever gone from my house. To the Super Store. Which is among the last c... Read more
That was a small kick in the shins.
I cannot fully verbalize a growing suspicion that has occurred to me over the past few days. Suffice to say, I was starting to wonder if the recipe calculator failed me when I made my big ol pot of beans. I'm thinking SP's database entry on pint... Read more
I believe I discovered the root of my . . . internal problem and I have worked at fixing it. I was either in the high range of my daily calcium requirements or maybe exceeding it a bit. My fault for not including my magnesium/calcium supplement ... Read more
Been a bit too long since my last entry . . .
That chill I blogged about last time was brief. We went back into unseasonable warmth (and high winds) in short order. The wind was getting so high-speed that its gusts were equivalent to hurricane force. It knocked over our barbecue and broke t... Read more
The chill is coming.
Our unusually warm winter will rapidly turn into normal cold temperatures this coming week. It's gonna get cold fast. And even though it's warm in the house, and even outside it's just at the freezing point, I feel the chill. Deep down inside, I... Read more
