172, allergies, priorities

I read a post about a fellow blogger who got food allergy testing done through a naturopath. This is VERY interesting to me. You all know my stinky gas trials and tribulations, and it would be cool to just know the issue and not have to experiment. THEN I saw how PRICEY this test is! WOH! Over $1,000 for the full she-bang. Well, I certainly don't have that kinda money. So, I guess it's back to experimenting for me.

Interesting stuff going on... well, to me anyway: I've stopped the Starbucks (yes, again). It was tough, because those soy "sugar free" mocha's were really good. I have certainly been craving them, but I'm dulling the craving with Click in the morning. The good thing - I am not craving the Click in the afternoon, so one in the AM seems to be doin' me just fine. Since I decreased the dairy, it *seems* my gaseous issues have lessened significantly. I am hoping this is the answer. I had some cheese this afternoon (2 oz) so we will see if this begins to cause it's own trouble. I would hate to give up cheese all together, but if I have to, I will.

Why is it that Day 2 "back on the horse" is more difficult. Well, I have many opinions of why, but regardless of why, it just IS. It's just like the day after a significant stressor. It hits you like a ton of bricks. *sigh* I dunno. It is what it is.

I did a nice, sweaty 35 minutes of kickboxing last night. Score for me. I am going to do another video tonight. I want to be out running, but hubby has that doctors appointment and I will need to be home with the boys. Once they are sleeping soundly, I plan on turning on a little Bob Harper Beginners Weight Loss DVD, which I have said before, and I will say again - is NOT for beginners!

I am actually skipping (gasp) class tonight to have time to grocery shop before the hubs has to leave for his Dr. appointment. I had to decide where my priorities were for the evening - go to class, or go to the store and have fresh, abstinent friendly food for myself and my family for the week. I literally do not have any other time to do it, and if I don't go, I have NO clue what we would have for dinner or to eat tomorrow. So, obviously, my priorities are with my family, and keeping myself food-sane.

So, feeling like I am once again on an up swing. Later peeps!
