Well woke today with a bad head, sore throat and swollen glands. Kind of relieved as it means that's why i felt so bad yesterday. Lately I seem to have a day before I get ill where I feel very tired. I am hoping that's actually because I feel better the rest of the time so it's more noticeable that I'm coming down with something!
Took a second 1/2 tsp of CO last night, and had awful hot swollen hands and feet and restlessness all night. Yuck. Am going to stop taking it for a while, lack of sleep affects me so badly and I can't afford that right now while I am getting steady with my food. Add that to the sore thighs from the squats and being starving hungry at 3am (don't know why), and I had very little sleep.
I ovulated yesterday so gearing up to face PMS time cravings now.
Moussaka thing for breakfast again. Going for a walk with my husband for Valentines . It looks sunny, yay, as it poured all day yesterday.
Walk was a short one but lovely, got called into work to fill in for someone, which was fine by me as the little girl I look after was in high spirits, days like that I can't believe I get paid to do that job lol.
Chicken dark meat with asparagus and butter for lunch.
Ate a couple of water kefir grains but skipping the CO today.
Had a message from a friend saying she tried going off gluten for a week and found her symptoms (diagnosed with post viral fatigue for the last 6 years, plus digestive problems and weight issues) went away and then came back when she reintroduced it. I always feel so happy when I can be part of something like that. I'm sure some people think I am weird for posting so much about gluten and food issues on my FB page but if one person decides to go gluten free or paleo because of what I posted then that is a big deal.
Feeling a lot happier than when I woke up, though am really sleepy. Lovely lovey dovey valentine from my husband who I nearly spilt from last year, dancing in the kitchen to the "Into the Wild" soundtrack I bought him. That's living the good life. I ran around a lot looking for life and then I found it was there all along, I was just too sick to see it.
Beef stir fry for tea with cashews (yes I am still eating those every now and then). I'm going to have to stop making these stir fries, I just don't like them without tamari
Looked through PF again tonight and planned my preliminary fitness schedule (can you tell I love my plans and lists lol). This time I am not going to overreach myself, just like I am not trying to change my food, exercise, starting meditating regularly, cut down on internet time, read more and learn to paint all the same week lol. (Yes I really did used to try to do that).
So: 1 swim with sprints, 1 yoga class, 1 LHT session and 1 hike. Plus rest days and some active funw ith the family. Plus the school runs, housework and stuff like that. A nice active lifestyle but not over the top exercise that'll take up all my time and end up with me burning out.
Delicious supper of butternut squash soup made with chicken stock, and flaked almonds. I am very lucky to be married to a master stock and soup (and roast dinner and stew) maker!
It's funny, I feel good and I don't feel fat a lot of the time. Then I catch sight of myself in a mirror or the glass door at school and see how big am and can't really believe it!
