Sleep - I slept like shite last night. I was plagued by horrific cramps and then developed a migraine! First time I've gotten one while trying to sleep. It was still present in the morning. I finished off the acetaminophen and took Ibuprofen with breakfast. I will probably take more with lunch.
-Hot milk drink w/ slippery elm powder, collagen hydrosylate, maple syrup, molasses, and an egg; 3 prunes
-apple, orange, chicken soup
-butternut squash w/ balsamic chicken & OJ w/ collagen hydrosylate
-hot milk drink (no egg)
BM - type 2 after dinner.
My post nasal drip is still fairly bad. I need to get back into my neti pot routine. Maybe it's still the remnant of the cold or maybe the goat milk is not as awesome as I'd hoped. I'm not finding a lot of info in the Peat world about congestion & dairy, and whether that is something that can be resolved or not. I still really want to try raw milk. One of these days (weekends), I'll drive over to the closest farm that sells it, sign the release form, and try the damn stuff!
I got some OJ over the weekend. I still need to do a larger grocery trip for the week. Meat and fruit. I am not sure if I want to get a chicken for another batch of soup or not. I don't have any other easy ideas for lunches. I guess I could look into the canned fish stuff paired with fruit.
I made an AMAZING (but terribly bloating) smoothie last night. I blended goat milk, 3 TB collagen hydrosylate, an egg, an orange (broken down into slices sans peel), frozen mango chunks, and a splash of maple syrup. I made way too much (a pint glass filled to the brim and a small glass) and it was super filling. My stomach was sooo bloated after that. I'm definitely making something like that again, but for a meal and not a snack! I was inspired by turqouisepassion's mango custard-y thing.
Hulky does not have to return to class until Thursday, which is fortunate since he is still very sick. He is perking up for longer amounts of time during the day, eating a bit, actually has an appetite occasionally, but inevitably crashes. He was in bed around 8:30 last night. I hope he is perked up enough to enjoy our party on Saturday. I had another energy crash yesterday afternoon. I'm guessing this is related to my period and that I'm not getting sick.
I need to stop under-eating on weekends!
I did a small sewing project last night while feeling lonely after Hulky went to bed. I sewed a couple of snaps on a shirt that opens up a bit more than I'm comfortable with. I tried to stitch some elastic on the shoes I bought for my Halloween costume, but it isn't working out like I'd hoped. I think my mom has some red pointy-toed flats that I can borrow.
