It is just me and the cat. Apparently we are a quiet sort of people.
|He's one quiet kitty.|
If you are wondering what the two of us did this week, I can share that we had a pretty uneventful week.
We worked on our landscaping.
|After the million stumps were removed. I think it looks like Attack of the Gophers!|
We ate chips 'n salsa and enjoyed a cold beverage. That's him dipping into the mango salsa. Just kidding. Cats do not have thumbs. He took the picture!
|Our first night of relaxing and this was the dinner that we chose.|
We watched some movies and most of all,
I think I caught up on 7 years of middle of the night blood sugar checks (yes, we STILL do that) and of missing sleep, even while I was in bed.
Ever have those nights where even though you CAN sleep, you really CAN'T? Yes, I have that problem too. I think I count blood sugar numbers like most people count sheep.
It was nice to catch up on that sleep debt. I think I repaid one or two years.
I did do one teeny-weeny little thing while the girls were gone. It was a little personal science experiment on myself.
For the week, I went entirely Gluten-Free. I wanted to see how I felt without Gluten clogging up my body and to see if it helped with the frequent headaches, bloating and general aches and pains that I have been having. Since turning 40, this old girl just isn't the way she used to be.
And guess what? I think I do feel better. My allergies were a ton better, even though I worked outside in the garden daily. I also feel more fit with less stomach bloating. Not that I lost any weight, but my tummy feels better. I had no headaches and felt more energy than I have in months.
Now what to do with this information? I am not sure. I may continue this route for a while longer. There is a Naturally Sweet Sister that I have been concerned about too. Since her test results have appeared normal over the years, I am not sure what to make of it. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject of Gluten Free and testing. Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.
But for now, one more day without those girls, so I am putting on a second set of garden gloves to resume my yard work.
And then, I am taking a nap!
