Those of you who have been following me for a while might remember that I actually adjusted nicely to living a wheat-free/gluten-free life. It took some time but it finally happened.
And then I got glutened – just before my Aria’s baby shower. I’d thought all supplements from one company were gluten-free. Wrong!
Prior to that, if it happened, I’d just deal with feeling bad, wait until it passed, and try to be more careful in the future.
Yes, folks, I bought the Gluten Cutter and things went downhill with my diet – in a hurry. I went from being totally gluten-free to what I call my three and a half year gluten tantrum. I loved every morsel of forbidden food that passed through my lips.
What I didn’t love was how bad I felt. Maybe if I’d continued taking the Gluten Cutter, it wouldn’t have been so bad but the exhaustion just got worse with each passing day, month, and year. Some of that overwhelming fatigue is because I made a decision to treat my hypothyroidism with natural supplements – but I’d been doing that before I started eating gluten again and functioned pretty close to normal. Or at least normal for me. 😀
I’ve been promising the first book in my new Weko Harbor series for quite a while now. Well over a year. And I just haven’t been able to get it finished. Last year was mostly a bust, just a couple of short stories and three novellas. Why? Because it’s really hard to write when you’re so tired you can barely keep your eyes open.
Fast forward to last month. I guess I finally had enough. Maybe I grew up a little more. Whatever the reason, I decided it was time. I don’t want to keep going through my life mostly looking forward to the next nap or bedtime.
And I’ve got so many stories stuck in my head that I need to get written!
Then there’s Aria. I want to be able to keep up with that little pint-sized Tasmanian whirlwind. So the wheat and gluten are out. And over the next month or so, I’m going to get the sugar back out again. Yeah, I’ve fallen off the THM (Trim Healthy Mama) wagon again. But I decided to focus on the gluten first, then the sugar, and then work my way back onto the diet.
There are only so many dietary changes I can make at one time, lol. Anyway, wish me luck. Pray. Send good vibes my way. Whatever you do – because it’s looking like Weko 1 might be hitting the virtual shelves in the next month or so. For real this time.

This song seems appropriate just now.
