Today kicks off my first totally gluten free day of the year. I am not supposed to have gluten or white things (such as white rice, white potatoes, white sugar). It is a huge pain in the ass, but I feel ten million times healthier after eating the way I am supposed to for a couple days. This year I want to try my very hardest to eat right. Gluten intolerance sucks a lot, but feeling icky sucks way more. I know I can't have gluten based on what a nutritionist I saw told me. Then about a week ago my mom saw a psychic and she said the same thing about me. Kind of weird, huh? It just got me thinking that I probably should take my health more seriously.
In the past few days I have gotten a bunch of new novels. About 18! I am really looking forward to reading them all. Getting new books always makes me super antsy and excited! Some of the new ones I am really looking forward to reading are:
- Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow...although it's written like a poem or something, so I'm not sure what I think of that.
- This Perfect Day by Ira Levin. I have always wanted to read his stuff and this is a good start.
- Black Swan Green by David Mitchell. No idea what this one if about. It was up for a Man Booker award, usually only good books get that.
- The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley.
I would like to mention that I am watching Modern Family right now and it is so funny! My boyfriend and I never really got into it, but we just got season one on DVD and loved it. It's the kind of show I can watch over and over. Like Friends, Gilmore Girls or South Park.
