Umm, where is summer going?

We’ve had an absolutely packed summer, which honestly is the way I like it. When it’s this ungodly hot you I better have something to do or I will melt into a puddle of crankiness and despair. Unfortunately, it’s also been full of rain, so we haven’t been to the pool since the first week of summer. Luckily we saw sun on most of our beach days so that makes up for it.

The only reason I even know July is half over is because today is exactly 4 weeks from my first tri since having a baby (and since busting my knee). And of course, I have a broken toe. The stupidest of stupid tiny injuries that actually really gets in the way of a lot of things. Hey, at least I’ll have a strong swim????

I mentioned recently that my son’s food allergies have either gone away or at least become much less severe, meaning my world of food choices as completely opened up. (I’m breastfeeding, so what I eat, he eats.)

I used to be pretty picky about what things I’d put in my body. After being forced to stop eating certain things involuntarily, I  never want to intentionally limit myself again. However, the downside- I feel like crap. I don’t know if it’s because I always had a problem with those things, or if I caused issues by avoiding them. So I should probably figure that out, or it’s going to be a very unfortunate tri experience, in addition to the stupid broken toe.

A couple interesting thoughts for the week:

The price you pay for a hangover– besides the massive headache.

Is your coffee bulletproof? I feel like I need to try this- I’m not a big butter fan (taste-wise) but I do love coconut oil in my coffee…


So what do you think… can changing your diet cause you to become intolerant of certain foods? Temporarily or permanently? Or does it just call attention to what was already there?
