Glad We Came This Far

We are well past the 30 days of grain free and feeling oh so very much better. More energy, less ouchies, just better all over. I am amazed that I don't miss bread, I do make some biscuits and such with coconut flour and almond flour and other breadish things, but for the most part it's not something I think about where before I would start meal planning with what kind of bread I wanted to eat and what I should put with it. I am amazed at how fresh and yummy my food tastes and well pretty too.

Just Over the Half-Way Mark

Our 30 day grain-free challenge is just over half done and we have definitely found some things out. We both have issues. Mark's gut has hurt his whole life, it is getting better by the day. I have more energy and my joints are feeling better. I actually was able to walk up the stairs yesterday without having to lean on the handrail to make my hip work right, I wasn't skipping up the stairs by any means but it was so so much better than it has been in a very long time. We are eating tons of veggies and fruit, along with meat and good fats and learning to cook with coconut and almond flour. I have a serious need for chips, corn chips specifically and hope to get past it with out indulging. I don't know that the corn chips would hurt anything, but would prefer to wait out the 30 days to see. We have not added in exercise, actually we have talked about this and we both HATE exercise, it sucks and seems pointless kinda like manicured grass that nothing is eating, personal prejudice, but ours so here we have it. So instead we are finding more things to work on, mowing, cleaning, etc., actual work just feels so much better than exercise, we'll see how that goes.
