Today is a rest day. Thank goodness. I needed to be able to sleep in a little longer this morning. My back has been bothering me, and the rest was very much needed. I see Dr. Steve tonight, yeah!
Today is the first day of my attempt to eliminate wheat from my diet. On Diane's recommendation, to help me break through my year long plateau, I'm going wheat free. This is going to be extremely challenging, as I'm a breadaholic, but I believe I'm ready for it. Although, I didn't pick the best week for it, Thanksgiving week, but I figure, if I can survive this week wheat free, I can survive any week wheat free!!
I'm excited to see how my body will react. Will I see immediate changes or will it take a while? When you make drastic changes to your diet, as I did a little over 3 years ago, by going vegan, you body may go into detox mode. I went through a serious one when giving up animal products, so hopefully it won't be as bad by giving up wheat. But I'm prepared if I do.
Tomorrow it's back to training - I'm scheduled for 2 miles and yoga.
