My granny had coeliacs disease so does my niece, a cousin and some second cousins. I don't have it but certainly am sensitive to gluten and it affects my IbS symptoms. If I avoid bread, pasta, alcohol etc I feel ok, eat any of them and have a massive tummy, feel sick etc.
My kids know what is healthy and what is not. They don't have as healthy a diet as I would like but what can you do. Breakfast is normally a challenge. Getting the two youngest to eat anything is a nightmare. Normally a waffle or sugary cereal, not great. I always have gluten free granola, seeds, fruit and agave nectar. They get Apple juice in the morning but water the rest of the time. My hubby does not help and does not enforce my healthy eating, very helpful.........not. School snack is always fairly healthy despite their whining to get crisps. It's an apple/ tangerine/grapes/ small sandwich or crackers and cheese. Sometimes on a Friday I let them have a cereal bar. We do have biscuits, crisps, cakes etc at home but they only get them once or twice a week although youngest probably gets crisps a bit more as can't bare her whining to have them. They are all healthy and slim and know what is good and what is isn't so I am not too bothered. They see me keeping fit all the time and are aware you need to move more/ eat good stuff. Shame I couldn't eat less dairy milk. Lol!!!!!!!!
Caro- hope work was fine & you are not too knackered. Are you straight back into work or is it a phased return?
Well done to Lotte, speedy lady. Well deserved.
JG- glad funeral went ok. Yip families- nothing stranger sometimes!!!!
Camlo- look after yourself missus ((((((()))))
Tangy- ur dog looks lovely. I would love another dog. Ours is 8.5 now, she is a lovely doggy. M our youngest loves her to pieces and often just lies cuddling her. Want another doodle but aupon is a lot of work and hubby not keen on dogs anyway.
more flipping, stupid snow this morning so couldn't go out on my tri bike, arghhhhhhhhh. It was 2.5 hour ride so dropped the girls of and did a few miles on my mountain bike, then back home and did 1.45 hours on the turbo whilst watching a film. Better than nothing but not ideal. Going swimming tonight but really don't want too, lol!!! Did a 10 mile run on Sundat so hopefully should mange the Inverness half in a couple of weeks although will be embarrassingly slow compared to you lot.
Flip sake ladies, a load of massive hugs required here again (((((()))))
Camlo- how dreadful for you. Hope she wakes up and is ok and maybe she can get some help??
CC- sorry things are hard, hope you can get through this and get the outcome you wish for.
Caro- look after that back. Stick to cycling maybe and hopefully you will still manage the half.
hope you are ok also TT x
Lotte- hope the anaemia starts to improve. I find it hard to do more than a few miles with no food in me. I normally carry a few jelly babies for runs upto half marathon. Anything over that I will take a cereal bar/ flapjack kinda thing. Don't do gels, yuck. I need to eat real food and now on longer cycles/ runs need to practice what works. Am reckoning NUUN in my water, High5 4:1 powder for my water, rice cakes, cereal bars, bananas, mini cheddars, maybe wee ham sandwich!!!! Will see what works.
Yes Hoggle your farm visits sound awesome, lucky you
Yes Camlo I cannot imagine having to do more training. It's hard fitting it in and I only work part time. I must say I do love ticking of the training sessions. I write 2 wks of training on a white board and when I think I might do it on each day and then tick of. There's only been one week where I have completed every session though!!! .oooooops. Do you follow the swim sessions?? The runs/cycles this week have started wee intervals in them. I tried to do the 5x1 min fast in this mornings run and think my fast was still slower than most of you normally run!!! It was horrible sleet, wind and hailstones, so horrible.
three days of school here. M was ill from last Wednesday night until today. R is now ill, arghhhhhhhhhhhh. Give me strength!!
did u have fun CC? New name?!!!
Poor A Kinsey, so many bugs about up here. Mmmmmmm to Belgium chocs, sound yummy. I don't do lent but certainly could not ever give up dairy milk, lol.
Kinsey- big hole with waste in it sounds minging yes. Complain about it.
Caro-sounds very busy, don't be knackereing yourself out too much now. Well done on the PR, amazing lady that you are.
Well done Camlo also. Big hugs to you also ((((((()))))). Feel your pain on the long turbo sesh, hell.
JG - sound like you have been busy also.
Crap EF, poor you.
Hoggle- camping trip sounded lovely.
sorry to anyone else I have missed.
One hour on the treadmill today then a wee bit of core work. Yesterday got out on my tri bike for first proper ride. 38 miles. Was bloody freezing and my hands and feet were numb, horrible. Forgot to unclip when nearly stopped and fell on pavement and hurt my knee, embarrassing!!! Finding trying to fit in swim sessions very hard. And no joke I am always hungry, always. Could eat a horse.
