I love the idea of no more dieting and am doing well with that but than decided to try and go gluten-free for a few weeks to see if it would help with some of my health issues; mainly fatigue along with joint and muscle pain. I am trying to do it as an experiment and not look at it as a diet because I don't want to fall back into negative patterns of thinking: bad foods, failure, weakness, diet, etc... I did really well my first week but than seemed to have a little gluten here and there throughout the rest of my week. I am not too concerned about eating the small amounts of gluten but more so how this week has made me feel. I am starting to have old thoughts creep in regarding my ability to follow thorough. I feel like I failed and I don't have any will power and need to be stronger. I know these thoughts are untrue and I need to take power over them, but it's still difficult. I am trying to get past this and continue on.
Some of my eating this week; I will not say good and bad eating, but instead some gluten-free and some not gluten-free. I had homemade tacos on corn tortillas. I tried a new recipe for Honey Garlic Chicken that was pretty good. I made pizza, gluten-free crust for myself, pita pizzas for Hubby. We ate out on St. Paddy's Day and I had Shepherd's Pie and a delicious Guinness cake (not gluten-free). I did have a breakfast sandwich from Tim Horton's (sorry no pic, and yes it had gluten). Made a delicious Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash with eggs this morning and had wings at Wing"N It for supper (again no pic and not gluten-free).
