I don't know why I'm counting (I guess I just want a title for the entry). Even if I'm not strict about the intro, I plan on being strict about sticking to the SCD for the rest of the month. Probably beyond that, too. I'm hoping once I start making some real dinners that I can get into the groove of rotating recipes every week and it'll be easy to add stuff in for Hulky once he's back.
I have an app called SCD Buddy on my phone. I can enter foods and it'll tell me if they're SCD "legal". This will be helpful when Venus visits this weekend so I can find something friendly to eat. The oils will not be friendly and I am frankly unwilling to ask them to cook my food in olive oil or butter. I never did it for the Whole30 either. I know it's unwise and I'll feel the effects, but it's more hassle than I'm willing to deal with. For shame!
I'm sleeping enough, but waking up tired. I am just trying to tough it out for now because I don't think taking anything will help. Being tired this consistently for the past week+ leaves me feeling weak. It's hard not to let my mood spiral too.
Tonight: pick up starter yogurt (Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus acidophilus (optional)) & grass-fed whole milk. Make sure chicken soup. Maybe make some applesauce, though that's supposed to wait a little longer. I guess I'll get some squash to puree.
Packing: I'm starting with Hulky's stuff, since he won't be here. Clothes can go in bags, but I'm also wading through some paperwork. Not sure what to keep, but he has internet access so I can just ask. He said the connection was really bogged down during the day so he won't be able to email often, if other students are hogging the wifi. He suggested I ask his mom to ask his brother-in-law to lend a hand with some moving, since he has a truck. Maybe I'll see if he and Chip can help move most of the larger items on the weekend of the 24th.
I'm going to do some polyurethane on the kitchen cabinets over there this week, as long as the humidity is low. I don't mind being put to work for this place. Can't wait to share some pictures of it, it's really nice. And I could use help figuring out how to arrange the living room =P
