I cannot do milk stuff, but I have been craving avacados lately.

So I'm going to take that as a sign that my body can not handle processed food and wheat products, as every time I overload on breads/pastas I feel terrible after!

I guess there's just no getting around it, I can either eat super healthy and get control of my fibro and lose some weight, or I can stay fat and in pain all the time. It's of course an easy choice, but it's a bit sad that I might not ever be able to enjoy my favorite foods again.
I am with you. I ate wheat and my eczema is back and fibro is sucking. I also gained 4 lbs back from who knows what. I am being so careful now. I did not even overload. I just had a bit.

I went gluten free today. After my week and feeling sick when I ate wheat I am done. I think I need would have pinpointed it if I had not cleaned up my diet so well.

I need your opinions. I was planning to restart couch 25k today. Didn't happen. Here's my schedule. Dh is off Sunday and Monday. We do family things, either alone or with his fam or my dad on Sundays usually. Monday we drop off dd at school and run errands. Tues and Thur i drop off dd and go home. My gma picks her up from school and then drops her off ay home in the evening. I usually life on these days, and saturdays. Wed and fri i go to gma house and they watch ds while i run. I shower and change there. My problem is i was trying to run on mondays but by the time we get home and eat lunch, I'm exhausted. Dh usually naps while i watch the kids, which makes me even more tired. By the time i would be able to run, i just dont want to.
So should i switch to sundays? The junk thing is they change all the time. Some wks I'll be able to run in the morn, others i cant. Or Tuesdays? I could go my gmas real quick on tues after taking dd to achool, run, shower (cause im dripping with sweat) and then go home and lift and shower again?
Sorry so long but finding a third day is getting hard. I dont have a jogging stroller so i cant go home and run and then lift right after

MyFitnessPal and it keeps track of your weight, measurements, excercise, calorie intake, etc. They have a place to enter in recipes to figure out the nutritional facts too
