I have been having some very "off" days lately, but I figured it could be any number of reasons: I've been fighting a cold, I stayed up too late studying for a test, there's icky stuff going on at home, I scheduled too many appointments and meetings the last few weeks and I keep running out the door so I won't be late because Ive forgotten what day it is and which appointment goes where, the list continues.
The results of the "offness" are that I feel extra stupid and sluggish and my bloodsugar is out of control, which is too bad because I had a very nicely controlled week or two in there...
Ill bet y'all can already figure whats going wrong here, because if it wasn't something gluten related, I'd be posting on a different board! But it turns out when I went to the store last week and stocked up on the granola bars without wheat in them (I only avoid wheat, but I often eat GF because then Im positive its safe) I bought the wrong kind! I knew that there were two colors of a certain brand and I could eat one but not the other, and I grabbed the wrong ones and I've been eating them like crazy, which only makes things worse and I'm pretty sure its a self-feeding cycle! The more bad stuff I eat, the more I crave, and the more I crave the harder it is to resist, so the more I eat, and the more I eat the more I crave....
I guess its better to find out now than after 3 more boxes of the stupid granola bars. And I just reaffirmed to myself that I ALWAYS need to read the labels and not rely on my foggy memory.
And in the mean time I will make extra sure to clean up my diet so that both my wheaty cravings and my bloodsugar get back under control and I can resume a (semi-)normal life again.
Now excuse me but I guess I'm off to go eat some emergency cottage cheese and hope that it helps....
