Ready to run again

Wow, I'm back to feeling the best I have again!!  I realized something huge yesterday!  Since I was taking rice protein and rice milk with zero probs, I started eating rice crackers.  The brand I was buying included only rice and sea salt (no prob right!)  I realized that I bought the no name brand, or actually I think it was the "irresistables" and I ate some a few days ago... here's what's in them:
1. japonica rice
2. sunflower oil
3. corn maltodextrin *YIKES!!*
4. sea salt

Um, there's my problem!!  I know it.  Corn is a big no no according to my food sensitivity testing.

Me yelling at myself "Smarten Up, read labels girl!!!"

Anyways- I've been super good with nothing new or out of the ordinary and I feel amazing again.  So good that I plan to go for a nice run on the treadmill when my babe goes down for his nap.  So funny that I could barely walk on Thursday, yet ready to take on the world & run Sat by altering my diet.


  1. I'm so glad you feel better!!

  2. @ Megan: Thanks! How are you doing??

  3. My feet/Achilles are mad. LOL! I've fallen off the wagon a bit on my diet though, so I need to eat the few things I'm craving, then get back on the band wagon again. It's just painful in the meantime!! ;)

  4. I know how you're feeling!! When I've flared, I've contemplated ordering a large double cheese pizza and finishing off with a large reese pb blizzard!! Hang in there girl!

  5. Jen, are you on Facebook? If so, we should connect!
