In the past, I have not felt like various restrictions to my diet for the sake of health have been difficult. I now realize that I have a repeated pattern of "screw it" at some point during a change/restriction. Last night was it for me. I'm sick of chicken soup, even if it's the only thing I seem to be able to digest right now! I'm not following the SCD, I'm winging it, and that is not helping me heal as best as I can. Last night for dinner, I had yogurt with honey. A lot of it. I'm pretty congested today with a lot of post nasal drip. I'm pissed, but dairy is flat-out not an option anymore and I've accepted that. I'm going to strain the whey out and chuck the rest of the yogurt. I am not sure if I should even use the whey.
I was going to make turkey meatballs tonight to have with spaghetti squash, but I'm not sure I should venture from pureed veggies right now. I didn't technically try reintroducing any pureed squash. I guess I'll just be pureeing some butternut squash tonight to have with the chicken I cooked up last week. Sounds unappetizing. Maybe I'll make the turkey meatballs anyway, just not have them in sauce. I think I want to try onions next to make some of my recipes a little easier, assuming they sit okay with me.
I had a hard time falling asleep last night and had to resort to some Benadryl. There's a threat of thunderstorms today so I took that and my sleepiness upon waking as an excuse to drive. My sleepiness is making me a bit grumpy so I feel guilty about that. I dreamt about moving last night. C was disassembling the guest bed even though I told him I was going to sleep on that one until the last day. Hmm... maybe I'll just sleep at my parents' house on the last night so I can move the beds over beforehand. We'll see!
I want to place an order for digestive enzymes and L-Glutamine today. Seems to be the only supplements that I need right now. I've got plenty of mag citrate for the time being. Digest Gold is a highly recommended enzyme blend, but it is very expensive so I'm looking around to see if I can find a reasonable substitute. I am not sure I can afford anything right now. I've had to cover some of Hulky's bills, plus my shopping excursions last weekend... I'll just have to wait to see how things are next week.
As penance for not biking, I need to do lots of squats today. LOTS OF SQUATS.
