Stumbled

So the Christmas Holiday Season is almost over…ending in New Years.  I bombed. Fell. Stumbled.  WipeOut!

I ate wheat based items – not once, not twice but 3 times – on three DIFFERENT days!  My daughter made cake balls.  I had to try one, thinking…it will be nice for her mom to at least eat one…three cake balls later.

I didn’t think too much about it.  A moment.

Then I did so good.  I made grain free cookies – with this recipe – http://wellnessmama.com/5810/chocolate-chip-cookies/.  SO amazingly good.  So proud of myself – for taking the time to do it.  Took them to a cookie exchange at a neighbor’s house.  EVERYONE loved them and no one could believe they did not have wheat flour.

Then I went to my mom’s Christmas day.  I did NOT eat the rolls.  But, see there is a FAVORITE cookie that she makes.  I’d AVOIDED them at the cookie exchange – pretending they were not looking all delicious on a plate.  But my mom…how can I possibly say NO to her cookies…

AND I ate chocolate…a lot of it.  While that is NOT listed on the forbidden foods – some chocolate items are FULL of corn syrup.  YEP!  Not straight chocolate bars, the candy that you ONLY get during December of every year.  UGH…

So – I was okay yesterday.  But so – so tired.  And my hands felt slightly swollen and weird – joint pain.  Then I ATE a BURRITO with a flour shell.  Frozen.  From the Store.  PROCESSED, SO VERY BAD.  Within an hour – it is like the Lord said…STOP!! 

By the time I went to bed last night – my knees were hurting and my hands continued to hurt.  My mom has TERRIBLE arthritis pain.  I’d read that gluten/wheat can make it worse.  It was NOT psychological.  It was actually happening.  3 days of grains in one form or another including hidden in that dreaded corn syrup – and I’m done.  Sorry.  Repentant.  Turning from the sin of disobedience.  God said to my heart – no grains.  I thought…just a little.

NOPE.  NONE.  Nada, Rien.

just say NO
