I didn't have any real trouble with this food (miraculously!) until Monday -- the day after my junk food binge ended and the day after the cheeseburger and homemade bread. My left ear was congested and I felt goopy in the back of my throat -- symptoms of overexposure to gluten.
I've been back on track this week, for the most part. Admittedly, though, I am struggling with paleo at the moment. I am not doubting its benefits and I have no intention of abandoning it ... I'm just a little bored and a lot tired of meat and eggs (please tell me I am not the only one who goes through this!?). I'm sure this is directly related to my lack of motivation in the kitchen. If I felt like cooking, I would probably be trying new recipes and would not be so bored. For now, though, it is a gargantuan effort to get a package of meat out of the freezer. I'm wondering ... if it is this hard now, how much harder will it be once the baby arrives? At first, Carl will be home to cook and my parents will be here to help out, too. We might even make some paleo freezer meals in advance. But after Carl goes back to work and we start to settle into a routine, I'll be on kitchen duty once again. If I don't recapture at least some motivation, who knows what will happen. I'm just going to keep my hopes up that this whole cooking/food aversion thing will pass once I am no longer pregnant.
