Yeah definitely too much sugar. Fried veggies is a good suggestion to for incorporating fats with my food. Usually the fat comes from my protein source, but I have no idea how much that would ultimately come out to.
The veggies you eat look good. What exactly are you eating? =P It just occurred to me that some pan fried sweet potatoes would be really tasty and I should definitely attempt that soon.
Hair: I just cannot use ACV in my hair. I used BS today, but filled the measuring cup with water and just poured it over my head. I had worked my fingers around on my scalp before this (which felt like it helped significantly), and then I did it again. It seemed to work a lot better than making a paste. I figured WTH and tried the same with ACV and not rinsing after. Back to smelling dirty and feeling icky. I braided half of my head. I suck at braiding but my hair is long enough for me to manage okay. I only had one elastic, so the other side was not an option I think it looks kind of cool anyway.
Back to just conditioner tomorrow, I guess! My braid will probably be wet all day. I brought my hair brush to work to fluff up the other side of my head later, now that it's dry.
Food stuffs: Last night I made meatloaf (picked up some cheese on the way home from work, but Shaws doesn't have uncured bacon). It came out better than our last attempt, I think. I had half the pan and boyfriend had 1/4, so the rest will be my lunch today. I made a big portion of broccoli and sprinkled some salt over it. Love me some salt. I was too exhausted for breakfast this morning. I also have a banana with me, and think I might try to eat it soon. Dinner will prolly be chicken stirfry, so there will be some "fried" veggies. Not sure if I should use olive oil or coconut oil.
Boyfriend and I made a late night trip to CVS so I could get my chocolate on. I got a bar of Godiva 85%. I think I like Lindt better (and it's cheaper), and will stick with 90%. It's not sweet, but it's so much more interesting and I really enjoy it. I ate two squares, but really could've stopped at one. Next time I'll just take one off the bar so I don't eat another just because it's there. I plan on making that bar last me as long as possible. Maybe even as long as Christmas! I was really tempted to have some of the vanilla ice cream in our freezer last night. "It's not December yet!" I resisted and feel like it will be easier to resist moving forward.
Sleep: I stayed up late finishing The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, which I enjoyed. Then boyfriend & were rough-housing and his shoulder got hurt. I slept alone until ~4AM when the pain had subsided enough for him to try to sleep I feel really guilty, but it was an accident and I know he doesn't blame me. So I did not have a good night of sleep. Skipping food this morning allowed me to get to work semi-on-time at least.
Overall health: Feeling queasy and off again today. Lack of food or sleep or illness? I'll try to eat a little soon. My stomach is still a little bloated, or maybe it's weight gain at this point, I can't really tell. I'm not worried about it, but it is my indicator that something is not quite right. The broccoli seemed to help get out some of the excess gas I had yesterday. It was painful enough that I considered going to the walk-in clinic at the hospital, but I felt foolish for considering it because it was "only gas". And w hat could they do, anyway? I am also wondering if the probiotics are suspect. I think I might stop taking them until I feel better overall, so I can rule out any issues there. I am going to sneak out of work early if possible because I feel really terrible. Monday evening when I was feeling really bad, boyfriend said I should not go to work. I missed a lot of days over the summer (a day every two weeks, if not more) and worked from home without prior authorization. It got me into trouble and I was told by my manager in CA that I would have been fired if I'd been working out there. Now I am very nervous about taking days off for illness. I need to save up those days for next Spring (vacation & Aunt's wedding in MD) and I don't want to risk losing my job. I can still work when I'm sick like this, I'm just terribly uncomfortable
Brain: Whatever, I don't care about that today. Focus is fine. I'm just feeling kind of bummed and frustrated about the overall health issues that have been going on for over a week now.
