[This post would have been up much earlier had a mouse not invaded my house and nearly attacked me!]
[Yes, I am being dramatic. But, yes, there was a small mouse in here earlier. EEK!]
First, I want to say thank you to everyone who read yesterdays post, and for all of the positive feedback and motivation! I was pleasantly surprised by how many people read the post, and commented on it. Knowing people will be following my progress throughout this challenge (30 day gluten-free, dairy-free, 30 minutes of exercise challenge: http://wp.me/pQbAA-1yE) will absolutely help keep me going. Maybe others might be able to find motivation here, as well!
If you are someone who has experience with a gluten-free/dairy-free (or both) diet, or great thirty minute exercise ideas, please feel free to pass them along. I would love any tips and/or ideas! I have already received a few, which I am very grateful for.
Here are some of the things I bought at the store this week to help me in this challenge:
Gluten free pretzels
Gluten free waffles
Sweet potato chips
Dairy free, coconut milk yogurt
Coconut milk creamer
Chex cinnamon flavored cereal
Gluten free chicken sausages
Lots of fruits and vegetables
My format is going to [hopefully] be to write about the previous days meals and exercise every day, just as an FYI.
So, on to yesterday…
For breakfast I had two hard boiled eggs cut up, along with a diced avocado, topped with spicy mustard. I took a picture, and then for some reason deleted it, sooo…no picture of that. But, it was really good. I loved the addition of the mustard.
For lunch I had a BIG, delicious salad.
For snacks, I had a Lara bar (the chocolate chip cookie dough flavor is wonderful), and some gluten free pretzels.
Since we were ridiculously excited for how nice it was outside yesterday, we decided to grill. We had grilled chicken and veggies (red pepper, onion, and eggplant).
I had some tea after dinner as my treat for the night. I love having (caffeine free) tea before bed. Helps me relax, and it’s almost like a cue for my body to recognize that it is bedtime. Plus, it usually helps curb any leftover hunger that dinner didn’t satisfy (doesn’t always work, but usually does).
For exercise, Maggie and I went on a lovely walk (for about 45 minutes to an hour). It was beautiful again! I am getting used to this. Please don’t take it away from us, Mother Nature.
I’m off to enjoy a small glass of wine. That mouse rattled my nerves!
