His mercies are new everyday…
So I have psoriasis. It is a skin disorder where you get thick, scaly, red, ITCHY patches all over your skin. I have gotten rid of it a couple of times before by going gluten-free, but I find that lifestyle so hard to maintain. When I was chosen for RBL, I decided to go all in and go gluten-free in my diet as well. So I am happy to report that I have been one week GF, and already my psoriasis is starting to thin. Yay! It will take a couple of months before it is completely gone, by my estimation anyway, but I would love to be psoriasis free by the 5k!
On another note, I learned something else today. I learned to always keep snacks handy. I usually have a bag of snacks with me, at least since starting RBL, but today I left the house in a hurry and forgot to get them… ugh!! I ate out healthy for lunch… (grilled house salad from Zaxby’s with no fried onions or texas toast, and lite vinigrette dressing), but I wasn’t planning on being out as late as I was. Went and completed my workout, which included the beast mode hill at GIT YMCA, and some rowing. My nephew is in the hospital, for what we thought was going to be emergency surgery, but God answered another prayer and gave us another miracle!! No surgery!!! He is feeling much better today too. But anyway, back to the point, I wanted to go see him. This put me out even later, and after that workout, I was starving. I ate a p3 pack… Love those, but it just wasnt enough tonight. Long story short, I ended up caving and wound up in a drive through line. Ugh….
I am not beating myself up, as I learned a very important lesson, and as someone quoted on my Facebook page, “His mercies are new every morning” I just have to get up and keep going. Tomorrow is another day, and I have a long journey ahead of me… it wont be perfect, but I will get there. thank you to all of you for your words of encouragement and private messages with tips/tricks. You guys are a great support system! !
