Gums - Hulky took a look and said it's a cold sore. I have never had one on my gums before and it feels different so I didn't think it was. The redness is reduced a bit and it's not feeling quite as irritated today. My gums in the others areas of my mouth feel pretty good & look a bit better with my new mouthcare protocol. I'm rinsing & brushing twice a day for now, but may eventually knock that back to one a day or just brush once a day, but still oil pull twice. People on IPMG said coconut oil will be good for a cold sore.
Yeast - I got grapefruit seed extract tablets last night. I picked up the bottle because I recognized the brand, but didn't see it's tablets and not capsules. They seem to work okay since my symptoms are reduced a lot today. I'm going to be taking a lot, 2 capsules 3x daily, for a week, then maybe one or two a day until the bottle is empty. I also got my Pau D'Arco tea and had a cup last night. I'll have two at work today and another one or two in the evening.
Food - Dinner is up to me tonight since Hulky has class until around dinnertime. I got some ground turkey the other day so I'll probably make some turkey burgers (no buns, so Hulky will just have to suffer without). We need to get more meat, squash & frozen veg tonight. I guess we'll get some kind of fresh veg too since I want to stick to my "fresh veg at least once a week" thing. Maybe some asparagus to roast. And now we have a reasonable broiler in our oven!
Exercise - Hulky ordered us a pull-up bar. Not sure where it's going to get yet, but I'm excited! We did some workouts together this morning. Mostly planks (side and regular), with some overhead presses & squats with the barbell. He is not good at sticking with a schedule for working out, so we are going to do our best to do these workouts together. I didn't bicycle today due to rain in the forecast, though apparently the threat of rain has shifted to tomorrow. I probably could have biked, oh well.
BM - Another BM last night after taking some slippery elm & mag citrate. Mix between 4 and 5 on Bristol stool chart. I need to make a chart in the pantry so I can keep track of how much of what I'm taking. I never remember how much mag citrate I've already taken. I'd really like to have my BM's in the morning because that generally feels best.
Wedding - Hulky decided not to get a tungsten ring and is just sticking with his stainless steel ring. Apparently tungsten is quite brittle and he doesn't want it to break. The stainless ring is very beat up after only 8 months of wear, but it can be easily replaced. My ring is ready to be picked up & my ring money has transferred, so I will be getting that after work today!
Weekend - Hulky suggested we go hiking recently so I asked him to look for somewhere for us to go this weekend. We are going to the credit union to update my name on Saturday so we'll probably hike on Sunday.
Mood - Much better so far today.
