Here’s what I’ve been up to over the last week or so:
Creating a Facebook page: That’s right, I’ve created a Facebook page for my blog, woo! It will hopefully allow readers, new and regular, without access to Bloglovin or Twitter to keep up with my latest posts. Please do feel free to check it out and give it a like! It’s over at www.facebook.com/amyrutterblog
Feeling poorly: I’ve been feeling quite ill over the last week-and-a-half, which is the reason this post is a bit later than I would have liked. Since last week my tummy has been hurting quite a lot, and over the last few days I’ve been getting more and more headaches, with a migraine last night. I do have chronic headaches and migraines – and IBS which gives me a lot of stomach pain – but both had been quite under control for a while. I think I’ve been feeling a bit stressed and obviously stress can really affect your body! I’m taking it easy when I can so hopefully will be back to normal very soon.
Assessing my FODMAP tests: Tomorrow I’m seeing a dietician to report back the results of my FODMAP reintroduction tests. So I’ve been analysing my results, figuring out which food groups I have intolerances to and the severity of those and then I can hopefully work out the next steps.
Loving Deliciously Ella: I was given Deliciously Ella‘s book for my birthday and I absolutely love it! It’s full of gluten-free, dairy-free (vegan) recipes that are healthy and delicious and it’s given me so much inspiration for new food. It’s a little frustrating that there are some recipes that I currently can’t eat due to eating low FODMAP foods but I’m hoping that once I can fully introduce more foods this will change. So I’ve been spending time almost every day running through the book and making notes of recipes to try and ingredients to buy. Ella has a second book due out in January and I’ve already pre-ordered it.
Watching Brighton Rockers kick ass: On Saturday I went to see the Brighton Rockers Roller Derby team play in the UKRDA National South Champs. I’m sad to say they didn’t win – it’s the first time I’ve seen them play when they haven’t won but to be honest they played so well I still think they kicked ass!
