I have been gluten free for 20 months and I have never felt better! Took years for a correct diagnosis!

Congrats Colleen!  Please email me at with your contact information so I can get the book in the mail to you. 

Normally I sit down to write this post on Sundays, but I am doing it on Saturday this week.  The weather this morning was absolutely glorious for our first summer session run of MIT.  I wish I had more than 4 miles on my schedule today.  I can only hope that the Pastor who predicted the world would end today (in 15 minutes actually) was incorrect so I can hopefully get in a longer glorious run next Saturday.  Winking smile  While I don’t typically buy into predictions like this, it certainly does remind us that our time is limited and to live each day to the fullest, not taking anything for granted. 

Onto brighter topics.  I am currently reading “Fly Away Home” by Jennifer Weiner and really enjoying it!  Funny that it is about a politician who has an extramarital affair (ahem…..Arnold S).  Not funny about the affair, but the timing of my starting this book. I love having time to read – another benefit of not training for a full marathon! 

Speaking of training, I have been swimming as cross training and actually enjoying it!  I was in the pool twice this week and only managed to swallow a smidgen of water as opposed to many gallons last summer.  Patience is key.

Dinner for the week is as follows:

Sunday – Rotisserie chicken or Pei Wei

Monday – Grilled shrimp & pasta, roasted broccoli & salad

Tuesday – Can you guess?  Taco Tuesday, black beans, corn & salad

Wednesday – BBQ chicken breasts, baked potato, green beans & salad

Thursday – Happy b-day to Mary (my mother-in-law) – hoping to take her out!

Friday – Pizza & salad

Saturday – Burgers on the grill, sweet potato steak fries, corn on the cob & salad
