Sleep - Hulky was out really early so I slept in the other room. He became like a mumbling, snoring starfish and I have trouble settling in once someone is already asleep in a bed. I woke up once to pee & throw things at the cat (two doors through that bedroom and she decides she MUST scratch at the closed one while the other is open) and then snoozed my alarm for 15 min in the AM. I've got bags under my eyes and possibly circles too, but I feel less dead than yesterday right now. I was in bed by 10:30!
BM - Type 6 late evening yesterday. I had about 1/4 of a bottle of kombucha after dinner. I'm going to cut back on mag citrate today, just having it with lunch & dinner, and have more kombucha tonight to see what happens. I think it made me gassy, but I'm taking that as a good sign, that my gut is actually responding to it.
Food - I'm glad I got groceries on my way home from work. Shaw's has good prices sometimes, but by shopping there, I miss out on getting the gas rewards points at Stop & Shop. I got good deals on some meat, but I think I missed all the sale prices on squash recently. I need to get more apple cider vinegar soon. I skipped breakfast this morning because I was tired & moving slowly. I'll have a banana with some tea soon.
Supplements - Out of curiousity, I'm supplementing Vitex again. Not sure of the dose because I'm using it in dropper form & not counting out 56 drops for 2000 mg (which is higher than what I took in capsule form). I woke up with a pimple on my cheek this morning that hasn't come to a head yet and I hope it doesn't. I started Biotin two days ago at 5000 mg.
I tried to swap the shower heads last night, but the pipe has an adapter on it that I couldn't get off with the multi-tool. The new shower head won't need the adapter. I took the opportunity to clean the holes on the old shower head of some build-up and scum.
Chiropractor tomorrow! $10 copay because I met my deductible a few months ago. I'm looking forward to reviewing our insurance options during open enrollment with Hulky. That might be as soon as next month. Where did this year go?
I got to work early enough to put up some window clings in the glass area of my ghost buddy's cubicle. The office does a Secret Santa-like thing in October where you decorate someone's cubicle at least once a week with a little something, or give them candy. On Hallowe'en, we'll reveal ourselves. I wonder when my ghost buddy will start decorating mine. I have to start taking lunch away form my desk so they have an opportunity to set things up, if their hours coincide with mine (unlikely since most people come in later than I do). I'll be putting some party tape up in my ghost buddy's cubicle next week that says "Caution! Fright Zone!" It's purple with green letters. He wrote on his form that he likes Dracula and Frankenstein (though I know he means Frankenstein's monster) so I'm on the lookout for some larger decorations.
