the agenda

i haven't really got into the habit of a totally gluten-free diet as of yet. i mean i've bought gluten-free pastas, some gluten-free snacks and some gluten-free breakfast foods. i can have regular red sauces with my pasta just not alfredo and i haven't bought gluten-free alfredo yet so i've been eating regular. there are several factors that come into play as to why i haven't yet, for 1. it's expensive. 2. there's a lot of alternatives to look for and buy and i am limited to what and where to buy these gluten-free products in my area and 3. it takes a little while to get used to and in the habit of knowing what to buy and what to eat. my boyfriend's aunt has it and i plan to sit down with her and learn more about it and also go grocery shopping with her once and maybe find out about more places to buy that i don't know about yet. i've learned of a couple places that have great product lists, but there have a little bit of a drive to get to and this is something i'm going to have to do frequently, so i hope to find more local resources.

  • i need to drink more water, lots of it!
  • i need to take more vitamins and on a daily basis, in the morning and at night before i go to bed.
  • i need to lay off the caffeine, soda and coffee. i love them both! they're so bad for you!
  • i need to work out and get into a weekly habit of jogging or walking with a friend and doing exercises and stretches at home everyday.

i really need to take care of myself and get myself into shape. i'll feel better and feel better about myself.

if you're willing to make the drive, i know there's a natural foods store in clifton park that might carry it. if natural foods stores even carry that sort of thing. & try rice noodles instead of regular pasta, i think those might be gluten-free [i don't have a box lying around right now so i'm not 100% sure] & they're not nearly as heavy as regular pasta while still being miiighty tasty. =] i've been trying to eat lighter & healthier foods cuz SOMEONE'S getting pudgy =/
