Gluten Free Vacation: Day 4: Moving Day


It’s real easy to get fat and lazy on vacation. You’ve got nothing to do and all day to do it. Throw in a bunch of meals and cocktails starting at noon and before you know it, you need a whole new outfit for the trip home, one size up.

Don’t fall into the trap. I don’t care if you’re gluten free, dairy free, soy free, drug free or free for dinner; keep moving. Keep active. Make sure you get at least a little exercise each day. Yesterday was an extremely active day (and my back is actually paying the price a bit today…hello Mr. Vicodin.)

Here’s a quick recap of moving day:

10:00-11:00: In the weight room.

11:00-11:15: Running the steepest hill I have ever been on 6 times. How steep? Here you go (this is actually the driveway leading down to our place…forgive the unseemly panting.):

11:20-11:25: Dry heaving (just kidding…sort of).

11:45-12:45: Yoga. This was actually my first yoga class ever. Some of the stretches felt awesome. Others I’m still recovering from. And still others I couldn’t comprehend. Put my leg where??

1:15-2:00: Lunch break. Thanks Chef Kate for my gluten free meals all week. Have I told you how much I love you!!

4:00: A ten minute walk to the beach. First up the same steep hill and then way, way downhill the rest of the time (but what goes down must come up…see below).

4:15:-4:45: Body surfing in some pretty rough surf. May not sound like it, but quite the workout.

4:45-5:00: Taxi!! No…we walked up the hill from hell to get back home.

So how did I reward myself after such an active day? I will give you one clue…

  1. Hi, I do believe your site could possibly be having web

    some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Apart from that, great blog!

Who I am. And who I'm not.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.

I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
