Day 1 down, 29 to go.
Sleep: I slept like a rock. I'm sure I got a solid 8 hrs and was able to get out of bed on time with minimal stumbling in the morning. Here's hoping for another night like that tonight! I still feel like having coffee though.
Food: Yesterday was 100% on track. I ended up making up for missed breakfast mid-afternoon so I did have 3 meals, but within a fairly short amount of time. I also had my last sweet potato, and I'm hoping to get more tonight. I'm thinking of incorporating more GAPS-like protocols into my diet to help with the yeast overgrowth. I need to make bone broth, which means I'll probably pick up an organic chicken at Trader Joe's this weekend. Making bone broth from a roasted chicken from the grocery store just doesn't seem right. Maybe I will get some ginger too, fresh ginger tea sounds amazing right now. I wonder if it would be too powerful for me to enjoy. I am kind of cheating on the Whole30 with the inclusion of raw, local honey for allergy relief. It does help. My allergies have been significantly worse lately, however, and I need a new jar. I'm not depending on the honey for sweetness, I just take a small half-spoonful in the morning, so I think it's a fair "cheat". I didn't report on this: a couple of weeks ago, I bought some ripe avocados and tried freezing them. They went bad while defrosting. Sigh, so much for that. If I was the kind of person to go shopping multiple times a week, I could have avocados all the time, but I am not. I think nuts are out once I run out of almonds, they might be adding to this slight acne flare-up.
Exercise: Biking is definitely in the cards tonight. I didn't do anything yesterday, just felt too crummy. I want to go to the grocery store (with a backpack, learned my lesson last night) and get sweet potatoes and bananas. I'm going to do more kneeling push-ups before I go out tonight. Tonight's plan: Go to parents' house straight after work to turn off pool pump, go to the apartment, have some nuts if needed, drink some water & take Candex, bike to grocery store, bike back, log distance! The worst part is going to be figuring out how to get from the bike path to the store. Last time I took it there, I carried it up and down this really rough path off a bridge... I don't want to do that again, but am nervous about biking on the road.
Mood/Brain: I was feeling depressed yesterday, probably wore myself out from the tummy troubles and feeling guilty about leaving work. I was exhausted all day and felt like the day was a waste, which is an awful feeling for me. I took a Tryptophan last night and feel much better today. All my worries about going back to work today are gone, though I am REALLY bored and there's not much I can do today. I will not take another tonight, I think it was just a momentary thing. I don't want to over-do it, since taking too much tends to be just as bad or worse than when I need it.
Ramblings, Ravings and Rants.: Off-day link-day
GravyBoat's haircut is making me all flustered about my hair again. It's so much EASIER when it's a pixie cut, and it takes long enough to grow out to a gross length that I could probably maintain the pink. Get it cut, grow it out, get it cut, re-bleach & re-pink, grow it out, repeat. So hard to decide.
