Getting settled at last!

We've got furniture now, and while one of our rooms is just a mess of all the crap we need to deal with and haven't got to, but that's okay. It's nice to be close to work, able to come back home for lunch, and so on.

This month, I'm doing something I never would have considered a few years ago - not only have I gotten myself totally addicted to hot yoga and decided to try a 30 day practice challenge, but I've also started June off with a totally vegan, gluten-free, caffeine-free, alcohol-free cleanse diet for 21 days before reintegrating some of those things. How it came about is a bit of a story, but it seemed like both a good challenge and a good health idea, and 11 days in I feel pretty excellent. Learning to cook vegan is actually leading me to wonder how much meat etc I'll actually add back in - I think I'd like to try to reduce the amount I eat, given how great I feel. I miss coffee too, that I'm sure I'll be back to that, though I've discovered I'm not as dependent on it I thought.

I did miss beer today though, the first sunny day we've had on a Saturday in a while, and as we sat on a patio downtown for lunch, I really could have gone for a nice lager. Lunch was a lentil burger on a spelt pita - and it was awesome - I'd eat it any time, vegan-of-convenience or not. That's what has been really fascinating, not only have a developed an appreciation of how difficult being a celiac sufferer much be having to eliminate gluten from your diet, but I've also developed an appreciation of what and how I eat, and when you really pay attention to labels, it can be a little shocking.

It's been interesting, for sure.
