The acetaminophen helped much more than the Ibuprofen. I forgot to take any this morning and am feeling okay cramp-wise today.
Sick? - I still kind of feel like I'm coming down with a cold, but at this rate, I think it's not going to get any worse. I used the neti pot on one side this morning (lack of time for both nostrils) w/ a drop of tea tree oil. The allergy meds are helping me to keep from sneezing. I have some lemon ginger tea & the makings for Kill Everything tea that I will drink today. I have taken 20,000 IU of Vit D for the past two mornings and I'll take my Vit C after work. I should be good!
Sleep - I took 5-HTP last night AND Theanine Serene. It might have been overkill. I had vivid and strange dreams. This was a side effect when I was on SSRI's and also when the 5-HTP dose was too much. Tonight, I'll just try the Theanine Serene and I WON'T get wrapped up in a book and stay up 2 hrs later than I should. I was dead asleep when my alarm went off, but got out of bed okay about 10 minutes after. I am not sure if I should tackle both waking up at 6:15 AND going to bed on time right now, but I really need to do both. I need more time in the mornings.
Body - I did a couple of sun salutations last night and it helped my back feel better. It's been feeling very tight & sore lately. I'm trying hard to improve my seated posture and keep my shoulders back against my chair (since I sit almost all day). I did squats with the barbell this morning and some overhead presses. My leg felt better after the squats. I will try to do some more tonight! Squats, planks, and overhead presses should help to get me in decent shape before my next chiro appointment w/ Hulky on Oct 5. I'm looking forward to see our chiropractor, he'll love to hear about our wedding.
Food - I skipped breakfast this morning, I was slacking. I am finishing off my chicken soup this AM and need to make more. I'll swing by the grocery store on my way home for squash, meat, a chicken, and soup veggies. It's going to be a busy night of cooking, but at least I have bacon!
Mood - My mood seems to be much improved this week compared to last week. I feel like the anxiety is lifted and I'm not trapped in my thoughts.
