This post was supposed to be the kick off to my
I guess the moral of the above whining paragraph is to state, I haven't run in a few days.
On a completely unrelated note, I have started the process of getting my allergies under control. If you have been reading a long time, you know that I have horrific food allergies and I suffer relentlessly from seasonal allergies. I decided to get some testing done because of yet another severe allergy attack that required me to throw down a handful of Benedryl (I will do anything not do stab myself with an Epi Pen) and sleep off the effects.
I talked with the Allergist for 1.5 HOURS and he was awesome. Rather than push pills on me like other doctors have, he is trying to tackle the root cause. He ordered some blood tests and told me to start analzying what I eat. He warned that doing this is "not fun" and by "not fun" I need to go on an elimination diet. Prior to the elimination diet, he told me to remove gluten for a week or two to see how I feel. If better, keep it out of the diet and if I feel the same add it back. Simple, right? At least that is what I am telling myself. Once I document how I do on my gluten free time I will start on a rice and water diet. Well not that restrictive, but you get the point. The idea is to add foods back in slowly and see how I react to them. Silver lining is that I will be drop a few pants sizes?
Since I start all this BS tomorrow, may I present to you my last supper, err lunch:
Has anyone had the blood testing for allergies? Were you suprised by the results?
