Concrete gut

Hey there Bloggy friends. I am sooo ready for the weekend! Aren’t you! It’s going to be hard to top last weekend. My mom visited and we had a built in babysitter so the hubby and I took 2 long bike rides, ran a 5.25 mile road race and saw a movie. It was great. But this weekend, its back to the norm. My plan is to get into the pool tomorrow. I am so nervous. I wonder if I can even make it 100 yards! Then on Sunday I have an 8 mile trail run planned.

Not too long ago I did a vegan, gluten, sugar free cleanse. My goal was 21 days, I never made it that long. But I made it 14 days twice. I haven’t had meat since I started with those cleanses. So, it’s been about 6 weeks since I had meat. Anyway, my point is that I feel yucky. I keep eating junky carbs and it is amazing the effect you can see once you have cleansed. My energy level is so different and my gut feel sluggish. I almost wonder if I don’t have a gluten intolerance. I know I have a dairy one. I threw away the meringues and mini biscotti I had in my desk and I need to really try to back away from the packaged foods again. Yuck.

What is your favorite vegan snack?

How'd the swim go? I love Bora Bora bars; they are awesome!

Glad you're blogging again, sister!

I've wanted to try that no sugar thing too but I'll have such a hard time with no wine. I think it's great you made it that long.

It's good that you got rid of that junk food in your desk. When I go for snacks I usually opt for something with protein - like a protein bar, veggies and hummus, fruit with nuts, etc... You can find all kinds of goodies in Whole Foods or Trader Joes.

I hope your weekend is going great.
