Pre-trip wheat experiment

Saturday, May 25, 2013

I commented a few weeks ago that I was cutting out wheat. I've done well with eliminating it. Last Sunday, I was at my daughter's soccer banquet and ate a little banana pudding, but avoided the nilla wafers in it (I thought). That evening, I had severe stomach pain and had to lie down (something I NEVER do!). I felt bad all day the next day.

I decided this weekend, when i didn't have a lot going on, I would try eating wheat. I am afraid that I won't know what is in the food when we are in Cancun, so I wanted to see how careful I have to be! Not worried about weight fluctuations, but I don't want to end up sick while we are there!

So, for dinner today I went totally off my plan and had pizza with dh, my 3 girls and oldest dd's boyfriend. Then I shared a pack of favorite cookies with my youngest dd. So far, no pain or other side effects. We'll see how I feel tomorrow. Maybe I won't have to be so incredibly careful on vacation. I'll still be aware, of course, just won't have to act like a crazy person about my food!

    Away from home = new environment, new challenges.
    My questions for myself on holidays - do I go on holiday with my healthy life too, or it's till on? Usually, I set a few bold steps before my trips, that help me to stay on track, but also enjoy the holiday.

    It's hard to stay on track when you're away from home. You've got a plan and that is the first step. Enjoy Cancun!
