Kinda embarrassing....

I recently made a FB page {Please like it if you have FB!!} for my blog.  I didn't do it for a long time because it's kinda embarrassing.. ya know? I mean, letting the whole world know how big I got....and admitting that I've had to lose so much's not easy. BUT....I have greatly benefited from other people's stories and I am thankful for that.

My Mom is on her way here to visit...yay! She is watching the boys for us while my husband and I go to our church couples retreat. So exciting, and sad at the same time...I've never left Reece overnight.  He is still breastfeeding and wakes up at night usually....Kinda nervous for my Mama LOL.

I know we need to get away though, and it will be great. As usual I'm scared to eat out so I don't get sick.  I will have to be reallllly careful to not eat any gluten! I'm excited to get dolled up and have a date with my handsome husband. Sometimes I think, I can't believe he loves me... ;)

Here's my day in food yesterday:
Breakfast- since I was sick yesterday morning I wanted something easy on the tummy...1/4 c rice chex and 1 cup rice krispy cereal, milk and 1/3 a banana.  I shared with Reece.

Lunch- Ham and cheese sandwich on Udi's gluten free bread, with a delish green smoothie {frozen organic peaches, lots of organic spinach, milk, kefir, coconut oil, and half a banana.}

Dinner- it was Shane's birthday so we had pizza {Cody, Davey and I ate gluten free pizza and Reece and Shane had organic pizza}.  Then I made a gluten free chocolate cake, which was pretty good...a little more like brownie consistency. 

I felt sick again this morning, but not as bad. I've decided that sugar {on Shane's cake} is attributing to my pain...I believe I have SIBO. Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth.  I have a lot of clues that point to that....but that's a whole nother post. ;)

I'll try to post tomorrow. Thank you a million for reading. And for any comments!!! {Staci:) } xo

It's not embarrassing! It'll only really be embarrassing if you gain it all back! Lol So just don't go there! :) I talk from experience. Never heard of the SIBO. I love medical stuff. Will be looking that one up!

Thanks Staci ;) Prayerfully I'll never go back! Lord willing! lol

Do you follow Alissa's blog ( She is trying to do clean eating, starting today. She has all these questions. I told her to come here but not sure if she did. Thought you might be helpful to her and might want to follow her blog to be a help as she learns. Just an idea.

Adrienne said...

sure I'll follow her! Thank you for recommending me :)

Glad you stopped Sometimes I get emails during the day and don't have time to respond and somehow missed the name of your blog when Staci mentioned it... I probably would have found it in a couple of days. Haha

I feel the same way about my husband... I just can't believe a guy like him love ME! :)
