Yaayyyy Hulky gets home on Saturdaaaayyyyy
It's no wonder that I couldn't sleep last night. I have a lot to do this week. I was going to take everything we have in the basement over to the apartment tonight. I need to ask Coach about painting a portion of wall in one of the bedrooms, as I noticed some spill marks on it. Looks like someone splashed tea. It's a matte finish so I don't think it's going to clean off, but I may try some baking soda & a damp sponge. The 409 spray did not work. The spots I polyurethaned on the floor of the old apartment, well, whatever, it went fine. There are just a few shiny spots on the floor now =P. Okay, I need to make a To Do list.
I downloaded the audio from this video last night to try and help me fall asleep. It was very soothing and I felt like my thoughts calmed down while I listened to it. I think I did doze off before the end of it, but I woke up around 1:30 AM after it was over. I fell back asleep fairly easily after that. I was too tired to run and it's drizzly today. Perhaps I can get out tomorrow. Tonight, I may try a guided meditation before bed. I really need to be sleeping well this week.
Sigh, I got so stressed out this weekend that I started spotting. Not sure yet if this is going to be a full-blown period. It brought cramps along with it. I'm assuming it was the stress anyway. I haven't taken Vitex for almost two weeks, I think. I stopped taking it at the start of this current cycle after tapering off the week prior.
I have not had the great gut improvement again like I did during the first few days of the SCD. I think it's because I have not had enough days of strict compliance. I think even if I stick with the SCD, but don't go back to the intro of just chicken soup, I will see improvements, it just might take longer. The mag citrate is more effective now, at least. I think I only need 400 mg daily. I think once I get some L-Glutamine, I will see more improvements too.
