          • Since my journal is getting some action, I thought I'd better step in and have my say

            I've been spending heaps of time on the computer lately, with grant applications. I'm hoping to ease off by the middle of December, but not counting on it. At least I've decided not to do the application that has to be in at the end of January, so I get to have my Christmas holidays to myself. I love doing it, but it can make the old brain hurt sometimes.

            I'm doing really well on the eating front. I've come to love my sparkling water with a bit of lime or bitter lemon cordial. Yes, it's sugar. But there are only a couple of ingredients, and I don't make the drinks like commercial ones - just a bit of added flavour. I've also been drinking heaps of plain water.

            I've increased my intake of fats again. I have no idea what's happening with my weight, but the bloating from the last few weeks of random eating is slowly going away again. It takes a couple of weeks, and I keep making it worse by eating fruit. I'm just going with what feels good on the day.

            I went with my 21yo daughter to see Twilight last night - the midnight double feature. It was fun, and I didn't have anything to eat the whole time - just had a bottle of water with me. It made me feel ridiculously virtuous to see the coke and popcorn being scarfed down by everyone else. One of the ladies sitting near me had 2 bags of lollies from the supermarket for each movie, and they were all gone by the end. She must have felt awful for the rest of the night.

            My classes usually get a kick out of my taste in movies and trashy novels! I teach them about critical thinking, bring the arts into health practice, and evidence based practice - and then I spend the night at Twilight .

            One sad note - it's bloody cold here!! We turned the heating back on for the weekend, and I think I might need it today, too. Brrrrr!

              • I'm a fucking idiot. Everything was going great, then I got tired. I should have napped yesterday - I could have, if I'd chosen to. I ate too much steak, which started an IBS flare. So then I was on meds for the pain, and feeling horrible as well as tired.

                Today I went to a place I'm not familiar with for lunch. It was a tense lunch, because I kind of know the person I went with, but don't know him well enough and I wanted something from him. So I followed his lead, had a curry (at least I had the common sense to check that it was dairy free), naan, poppadom, and a glass of wine. I didn't like any of it very much. Then had a kind of tour with him (he's a lovely person, so it wasn't a hardship at all - just not really comfortable) before I dropped him off. Then I decided I was thirsty and without any kind of conscious thought I was in the supermarket.

                On the plus side - no aspartame. On the negative, some mango slices, jellybeans, and Ch'i (flavoured with stevia). Mostly it was gross, but now I have the shakes and am so bloated that even my trackpants feel confining.

                Here ends my rant. I'm going to pretend that today hasn't happened, and get on with eating clean. And get some decent sleep

                    • Funny that now I have no caffeine at all, very little sugar and no artificial sweeteners I am having trouble sleeping. I'm dreaming vividly, tossing and turning, and generally crashing in the wee small hours. It's enough to have a girl reaching for a coke .

                      Eating has been pretty good since the last crash and burn. I'm getting some exercise, having some fun, and generally trying to not do stupid things .

                      Today I'm procrastinating, though - I'm presenting at a major conference on Wednesday, and I haven't written the presentation. I keep going back and forth, and not getting anywhere. I'm going to grab a quick walk I think, then have another go. Wish me luck!

                          Stop shouting, you're making my ears hurt . Seriously, I heard the echo all the way up the coast!

                          Thanks - I'm getting there. Just writing a poem about my first love . . . (yes, I'll read it as a part of the presentation )

                          • Second post in a day - clearly something is going on.

                            I'm going to try ketosis again. I've spent the last while rereading my journal, mostly prompted by the fact that I'm living on pain relief again. I'm way bloated, stomach/hands/feet/knees. My back hurts. I've had packs and packs of ibprofen, heaps of buscopan, and even some voltaren. I'm a mess.

                            On balance I'm heaps better off than I used to be, but I'm not healing like I want to.

                            I don't know what to eat on this plan, though. Last time I tended to fast for long periods, and then overeat. I also, although I didn't journal it, had heaps and heaps of coke zero to get me through. I did journal that I added things like coconut cream, which I really can only have in small amounts. So there needs to be some planning involved.

                            • Hello again Jac, I'm glad you have found some measure of improvement, it really does sound like planning ahead is an important key for you. Best wishes as you keep on keeping on. A.

                              • Just checking in . . . I'm trying to avoid computers unless I'm working (and I seem to be working all hours at the moment). I'm still completely sweetener free . We bought a soda stream, so I'm drinking heaps of fizzy filtered water and doing well. Have a fantastic Christmas everyone! I'm completely unplugging for 3 weeks from this coming Thursday - can't wait!
