Ruhu's Journal, 12 February 2013

It's a wrap... just not a whole wheat one! I'll be staying off wheat for now. In addition to the digestive issues, I started noticing some sugar cravings again & I certainly don't want that! So, this lab rat will happily continue to eat without sugar, wheat & dairy. and, my next experiment will be to try lactose free dairy products. Since I'm leaving again on Fri, I plan to save that testing til I return next week. I am excited to know that lactaid makes a lactose free cottage cheese (one of the few dairy products I miss), & that my local grocer store usually carries it (they're out of it right now as they are on many items due to the blizzard stopping many deliveries). So, the lab is only temporally closed, i.e. I haven't retired my lab coat, notebooks, etc yet!

Forecast for the next couple days sounds good, possibly a bit more snow tomo night, but clear for Fri when I travel. Off to play some paddle tennis outdoors this morning -- its my way to make the best of another northeast winter!

But, before I go I'll pray --

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

And again today, I'll pray, breathe, log, post & express on this one day, meal, moment, bite & emotion at a time! xoxox
