Shorter post today - wittered so much yesterday there are only really the basics to say.
Poor sleep for no real reason (maybe cos husband is working away? I did "build him" out of pillows, but the pillows don't radiate heat or give you a cuddle).
Mood - sort of "ordinary", not up not down. Maybe a bit lonely - but not compensating with food!!! (thats big for me)
1st meal 13.20. 3 big bowls of my home made chicken stew!! (chicken carcass simmered to make stock the drained, chicken picked off carcass, extra chicken added + celery, onions and carrots) YUMMY
Snack 16.10 Small bowl of chili (beef, onion, mushroom, spices). Sampling what I am making for tomorrow - I am hungry!
2nd meal 18.50 Roast lamb, roasted carrots and onions (with olive oil). Small portion, not that hungry - but it was delish!
Lots of herbal and green tea to drink
Treadmill 41' "walking pattern" as yesterday.
sprints 10' - 30" at 12.5kmh (Not up to "flat out" today - but this was still tough), followed by walking at 6kmh til HR back to 120bpm, then go again! Probably got about 7 x 30" sprints in in my 10'. Will 'count" next time.
Spinning 30' class. Did try hard in this - intervals type class.
cross trainer 10' (warm down) at level 14
LBT conditioning 30'.
Felt good - but aware my right knee feels a bit "odd" so will take it a bit easier tomorrow.
Supplements - forgot to mention these yesterday. Vit D3 10,000IU, fish oil 4 capsule (1000mg each), glucosamine and a "sports multivitamin" (good quality). L glutamine (til its gone, won't get it again as I think I now probably get enough from my food), inositol (read great things about this) and tyrosine before workout. OH - and the 50mcg of thyroxine I have been on for a couple of months now. Not noticed any change yet in my symptoms, but hey, its all the doc will let me take - my results say I don't need it, despite having every symptom of hypothyroidism - and twice as much as she started me on. In another month or so, more blood tests to review how we continue. She's being good really even prescribing it for me I think.
Day 16(30) of whole(44) - on the "downward slope" now. Not anything in particular when its over - maybe some cream in a decaf coffee? Or on some berries. OOOH , I'm WILD! Obviously not "missing anything" that much.
The supermarket have given me a couple of days to think about what i would like from the store for a "compensation". Chocolates, flowers and wine were suggested but none felt "right". Maybe a bottle of single malt - husband would like that!!!! Lets see if they don't think thats a bit rich!
Thinking of making my own toothpaste - looked at the ingredients of my "enamel care" one and not keen! Baking soda + peppermint oil (just to psychologically say "toothpaste" at first. Not used shampoo or shower gel for months now - no ill effects, in fact my hair is quite healthy (I have dry frizzy hair most of the time).
