Ugh.. I completely suck at this. I mean, you have no idea. I'm almost failing on a daily basis. Not big things (usually), just little things mind, but still, a failure. Tonight's dinner was a classic example; went out for sushi with a friend tonight (I've had mad cravings for it and I thought ahead - as long as I order my handrolls and sushi, I'll be fine, i.e - no tempura. Mmm... tempura). Anyways, I make my first order, start eating. Oh hell.. soy sauce (has gluten in it, if you weren't aware). Well, might as well keep going (poor mentality I imagine, I should have stopped) and tried to keep it at a minimum. While I was at the soy sauce, I caved and had the tempura. Sigh. I'm hopeless. Dude, don't judge. Most days I'm okay, like 95% GF, but I find when I go out, I suck at it. Even if I try to plan. Even if I choose a meal that I don't think has gluten in it until after I get it (ordered a salad at the pub.. caesar, with a chicken breast on it. What does caesar have in it? You got it, croutons. Epic fail. Didn't eat them, but still).
So.. this whole diet change comes with a learning curve. And discipline. Lots, and lots of discipline. That I don't have. But... I'm honestly trying anyways. A lot of other things I buy are GF; snacks, granola bars, stuff for breakfast, dinner at home, etc. I've baked GF chocolate cupcakes (gross) with icing (Duncan Hines, which already comes GF, actually - and yum).
Anyways, just wanted to make a quick status update on the GF. Going to bed early tonight. Hella tired. Having a close friend from out of town come visit tomorrow night and I can't wait.
Happy Saturday! Don't do anything I wouldn't do ;) (probably not a far stretch, compared to my GF adventures.. lol)
