Sleep - Got to bed a little late. Cramps were bugging me. I think I'm done taking Theanine Serene for now. I had a hell of a time dragging myself out of bed this morning. I didn't get up until after 7! I took some Eleuthero root and it perked me up enough to stop dropping everything & running into open cabinet doors. Wish I'd brought more to take with lunch.
Food & BM report is updated in yesterday's main journal post.
Food for today - to be updated as the day progresses
-Breakfast in a mug (heated up milk w/ maple syrup, collagen hydrosylate, slipper elm, and molasses; mixed up two eggs & poured slowly while milk was stirring in blender's lowest speed) - it was a spin on Mark's Primal Egg Coffee, very very tasty, but definitely needed more molasses or some cocoa powder
-Apple (co-worker brought some from a local orchard)
-Chicken soup, orange, plum, 3 medjool dates for lunch (I feel full! I read some Ray Peat thing that recommended eating fruit with protein to avoid hypoglycemia)
-Carrot after work
-Steak & veggie dinner from local place, lots of o-6. I ate very slowly for some reason.
BM - Type 2 before dinner, type 5 twice before bed.
Supplements - I'm going to increase my dose of Biotin to two capsules a day, which will be 10 grams. I've been taking it for at least two weeks now and haven't had any issues with my skin or anything else, so it should be safe to increase. I want my hair to grow faster! There is a chance it will just make my hair thicker... but that's acceptable too .
Hulky is feeling better. I don't think he woke up last night after taking Nyquil & getting to bed. The only thing he's had to eat all week: a pizza (2 slices over 2 days, and then 6 yesterday that he forced himself to eat), two cider donuts...I think there was something else? I am pretty sure he lost some weight. He weighed himself at the hospital, but I don't know how much he weighed before. He's close to his normal weight, and the increase can probably be attributed to pizza. I hope he's feeling well enough to prep something for himself today because we have no leftovers in the fridge. So far, no phone call, so I don't think he has the flu. We actually got to chat yesterday, which was nice after a pretty quiet & introverted week.
If Hulky feels well enough tomorrow, we may be going to the last Revolution game of the season (New England's soccer team) w/ Coach.
Even though I'm tired, my brain feels a bit perkier today. I hope it doesn't go down the pooper like it did yesterday.
TGIF, fo sho.
