three things thursday

1. We got back this afternoon from a 2-day trip to Disneyland. It was fun. And exhausting. And overwhelming. And memorable. I haven't exercised since Monday, but I just mapped the walk from our hotel to Disneyland and we walked 4 miles alone between the two. And that doesn't account for all the walking inside the parks. Or how often I carried my 3 yr old or my 5 yr old. We didn't want to deal with a double stroller (which was a good call because it would have been a nightmare in the crowds) but the 5 yr old wasn't so up on walking the whole time.

2. Eating a gluten-free Wheat Belly diet wasn't so fun at Disneyland. But I didn't have any significant headaches nor did I have to take any Advil while we were there, which is pretty much unheard of for me. I didn't research beforehand if there were specific suggestions for gluten-free food in the parks. On Tuesday for lunch I ate a kids "Power Pack" which included string cheese and yogurt. Not really vacation food. But, no headaches.

3. I'm looking forward to getting back to Insanity and running. I think my half marathon training starts in a week. And I'm ready to get better at gluten-free eating.
