House, Diagnosis, Desperate Housewives... Who am I kidding? Just Random...

First off, I haven't gotten to talk about it on here, but I have had a couple of related injuries that have kept me from running for the past 8 weeks now. Prior to this, I was actually training for my first half-marathon. It has not been fun, and it's been a House episode trying to get it figured out. The latest diagnosis (and this one might actually stick) is... *drum roll*.....

Celiac Disease... Otherwise known as a gluten intolerance. Otherwise known as the end of life as we know it.

You see, dairy and starch? Are my lifelines. If I'm having a rough day, screw alcohol. Screw chocolate. Give me a bowl of cereal or a glass of chocolate and leave me the hell alone while I catch up on Desperate Housewives (Yes, that's right, I watch Desperate Housewives... Bite me.)

So now I'm being told the only way to know for sure is to go gluten free or better yet, take up the Paleo Diet for 30 days and see what kind of a difference it makes for me.

So now I need to ask you a favor... Do any of you have any input or insight about any of the above? Celiac, gluten-free, Paleo Diet, any of it? I just really need some insight as right now I'm thinking "How do you go without breads for 30 days, much less for a lifetime?!?"

Your random moment for the day... Last night my muscle man found out I have a Desperate Housewives obsession interest. We have now been together 3 months, and he has yet to discover this mainly because I've been in the process of moving and have not had access to television much. *Side note: I don't watch much television outside of 1 or 2 shows* You can imagine the joy  gnashing of teeth  looks I got when he found this out. I assured him that I would watch them on my own time when he wasn't around. He thanked me profusely.

My little thing that I'm thankful for today... Starbucks pumpkin spice latte. Yes, a little cliche as everyone is all about all things pumpkin and/or Starbucks right now, but I can't help it. There is just something marvelous about starting a day with something that is both pumpkin and coffee in a cup. BUT, I did manage to break my "Starbucks-a-day" habit from last year, and I assure you I will not be going back. That is rough on both the waistline and the wallet.

Giveaway Notice... If you have not discovered the glorious world that is compression gear... Now is the time! Check out this awesome giveaway being done by Blonde Ponytail. Pretty much awesome! She always has great training advice, and not to mention some awesome giveaways. :-)

It's rainy here, but I hope it's sunny where you are! Soak in the fall for all it's worth, and enjoy it for me! Ciao!
