Day 22 What are you thankful for?

Sunday, November 23, 2014

I'm now as 12/15 for the month, no noshing nights....only 3 left to make my goal a reality! Totally doable, so I must give myself a high-five for that. emoticon

Yesterday was my last day on the low-FODMAP experiment. I would not call it a success in terms of fixing my problem, but I suppose I ruled that out as the issue. At least I can go back to eating onions and garlic, and many other foods that I love (avocado, mushrooms, pistachios) that were on the "do not eat" list. Funny, it's all about the plants for me on the restrictions of this plan. I guess because most animal products were not banned (except lactose products) so I didn't miss them.

I'm going to stick with the probiotic for the rest of the month, I have 2 weeks of those left, and I'll see how that goes. I'm having some good days and some bad days still, so while I'm hopeful that they are having an effect, it's not as dramatic as I had hoped it would be.

This is Thanksgiving week, so I'm going to focus on gratitude this week, I think it's helpful to remember all the good things we have, and to express gratitude for them. I really do live in a remarkable place in remarkable times, and I feel extremely grateful for that!

So I will leave with this question: What are you thankful for?

***update: my status update this morning was an expression of gratitude for a roof over my head. As I was getting ready to head to the store this morning, I heard lots of sirens....turns out this is where they were headed:

This picture was taken from the deck of our house, a sobering reality that thing can change at any moment, and quickly, so I am even MORE grateful for having that shelter now more than ever.
