So…a lot has happened this week…general life (sick kids, hubby out of town, etc) has prevented intense workouts. I still have been exercising, but not quite to the same degree…at least for cardio. Lifting has been great!
I have a feeling that I may have a gluten sensitivity. I have been tested for celiac before and that has come back negative. However, on my off days (of eating healthy) I often eat a lot of gluten. I miss it the other days. And I ALWAYS feel horrible the next day. I thought it was just the extra calories, but I think it is the extra gluten. I have noticed sore throats, itchy ears, gastro issues, acne, stuffy nose, dry skin, distended belly, moodiness, tiredness, etc. I had been avoiding bread for awhile just to be healthy and had it in the house the past 2 weeks…I don’t know if it is the amount I have eaten or the consistency, but the sore throats and heartburn are to be noted.
All this to say, I may have the clue to why my off days throw my weight into crazy numbers…gluten sensitivity can do that. And when I was younger those numbers dropped right down…they no longer do that.
And so…the update…scale no progress. 😦 Measurements no progress either, but I am ok with that one, because I was super happy with them last week.
I am currently looking up low calorie gluten free diets to test my theory. Although with the knowledge that I will be avoiding it soon, I ate some bread today and am experiencing the results. I could be completely okay with gluten…but some funny things have been happening since I have been eating more of it and I would like to know what is going on with me.
