Score= Jen 1; Sugar 0

The sugar experiment continues, and I have to say, I'm impressed. I know I said it yesterday but I really noticed this morning that not only is my skin significantly less irritated and blemished, but my bloated belly has really flattened out!! I have not made any other changes to my diet aside from cutting refined sugar almost completely out. So we've discovered that cutting out dairy and sugar have both made a huge impact on my health and well-being. In the back of my mind I can't help but think, should I go for the trifecta? I still don't have nearly as much energy as I should and I can't help but think that last final piece of the puzzle, gluten, might just be worth giving another shot. The reason I haven't cut it out is because my stomach is great so why should I? Because I find it impossible to get out of bed in the morning and I haven't exercised regularly in over a year? I'm going to keep on trucking with the sugar experiment for a while and dairy too and see how I feel in a month or so. Then I'll decide.

On another note, my girl ALLIE is getting MARRIED today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She's probably gonna kill me for reposting this pic, but it's the only one I have of her and her new hubby Matt (at the GF Cooking Spreee). I'm so happy for them and love that I always get to re-tell the story of how I was there when they met. Well I wasn't there the night that they met, but I was there the next day when she waited (im)patiently for him to call. It makes me smile thinking back. Matt's awesome and they are great together and I wish them all the happiness in the world. It is a GORGEOUS day here in Boston and I know they're going to have a perfect wedding. CONGRATULATIONS ALLIE!!!!!!!!!!
