I realized yesterday/today that my decrease from ~7.5mg in Lexapro to 5mg has made a difference in my snappiness.I got really pissed at a facebook comment my sister made yesterday and it REALLY should not have bothered me. My realization of the stupidity of it all was quicker coming than it has been in the past, so it still seems that my moods have leveled quite a bit. I am going to cruise through "Mood Cure" again to read about random mood spikes or triggered mood spikes such as that and see what might help there. I think 5HTP will help, I just need to get it!
Boyfriend's car is fixed! Yay! Finally we will have decent-sized transportation hehe. No more scooter in the rain. Speaking of which it's STILL slow even though it's dry today. Pissed and worried about that.
Going to Maine tonight. Might be fasting a lot or eating a lot of salads. Boo. Worst comes to worst, I'll head to the grocery store, if I can remember how to get there, and pick up some meat and eggs.
Last night, we got pizza and I let my boyfriend know I will not be joining him in pizza every week for raids because 1. we raid twice a week 2. we'd already said we won't order pizza/order out more than twice a month and 3. it's friggin' expensive! He sighed and agreed on all points. I am fasting till my tummy feels a bit more growly this afternoon, to make up for the bloated ickiness that last night's transgression brought upon. I was not hungry this morning, and somewhat hungry around 10AM, as usual, but it's gone away. Unfortunately, now I have a headache...actually, feels like it's time to eat! Turkey & cheese roll-ups yum. Recently, I've had little interest in any alcohol except wine, which is sad because 'tis the season for pumpkin ale and I love pumpkin ale. But pumpkin ale is not friendly to my tummy or my head.
I'm doing a loose version of the 30-day challenge starting Monday. I'm not really trying to reduce anything, but just eat more cleanly than I have been, which means no pizza, beer, or wheat AT ALL because I've been cheating quite a bit. I need to make eating right a HABIT.
Tonight I'll do some kettlebell stuff before we head to Maine in the traffic (boo). There have been some sore muscles in the inner-thigh and low-back area that I know are weak anyway. I just wish there was an easier way to be able to lift the damn thing with one arm. So weak! That should burn off the rest of my wheat-pudge from last night though.
Oh yeah! My mom ordered us Joy of Cooking and a Gluten-Free Cooking for Dummies book Looks like I should be able to adapt some recipes in the near future.
