Weaving my way around Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Day 13

leave a comment »

Almost made it two weeks.

DS returned from visiting DD2 last night and brought GF Bagels! This Jewish girl who grew up on NY city bagels imported to Illinois, and the occasional St. Louis bagel brought in on Saturday’s – but only if you got up early and stood in line at the deli – found it hard to resist. We ate them for 9 days straight when we were in Portland this spring, and I was fine. So, I had a little lapse and ate a bagel with butter for breakfast. One more with cream cheese tomorrow and then I’ll start all over on the AIP. No one should be coming here from Portland until the holiday, so I shan’t be tempted again!
