This year I started a new diet. Now before you jump to conclusions, I am not trying to lose weight. I actually, not by choice, am on a gluten free diet. While 2012 was probably one of my most favorite years to date, it has also been difficult in other ways. Overall, I did not feel well for most of the year. While it was on and off, when I felt off, it was really off. There were a few days where I even felt like I couldn't get out of bed which is very unlike me. So after a lot of painful testing it appears that the best next step for me is to try and give up any and all gluten products. While I am less than thrilled with the outcome, I'm hopeful that it will mean that I'll start to feel better.
As I started my diet, I realized that it was going to be so much harder than I anticipated. If you know me in the least, then you know I have such a sweet tooth. I would eat cupcakes for breakfast everyday of my life if I could. But rather than give myself an endless long list of all the things I can't have, I'm deciding to change my attitude. I'm discovering that if I go into each day with a positive attitude about the things that I can eat, it makes it so much easier. Overall, I've been eating healthier and starting to feel a tad bit better. So here is to hopeful thinking that in a few more weeks, I'll be back to my normal happy self!
