My dreams have been very vivid lately. Thanks, potato starch? Last night's themes included:
-Harry Potter after the books (specifically the year after). Hogwarts was in chaos and somehow being powered by a bio-mechanical thingy that was half ogre thing and some kind of nuclear-like magical core. I had to update it (by talking to it) periodically about happenings in the school/outside world so it could advise me. I also had to try and pick some gunk out of its disgusting peeling flesh uuggghhh. This included me as a side-kick and some kind of adventure into New York?
-That crossed over into me wandering around topless for some reason and being almost entirely comfortable with it. Also, nobody stared. It was awesome. I only felt self-conscious when I was putting a shirt on before going back outside. Hulky's phone was dead & I couldn't tell him I had to leave for NY without any notice. He was mad at me and I was mad that he was mad because it wasn't my fault I had no other way to contact him. I also did some kind of race involving sitting in a tire that had a chain-saw mower on it and a paddle to turn. On the uphill portion, I had to walk my feet inside the tire to keep it spinning since the motor wasn't powerful enough.
I woke up with a headache today. I think it's part congestion and part dehydration. I didn't drink a lot of water last night and drank a bit two nights ago, so that was unwise. I took an aspirin this morning & am chugging water today. I forgot to use the saline solution before leaving for work.
I have to figure out a better way to eat the gluten-free pizza when I make it. One batch of dough results in two small pizzas. I have been eating one whole pizza for dinner and that's a perfect amount, but either the cheese or the crust gives me painful gas & bloating. It would be best for me to limit myself to 1/2 a pizza and then have something else on the side.
Today is the first day of my potato hack. I've been telling Hulky about it and might try to convince him to try it with me sometime =P. He wants to lose a couple of pounds. He may lose it just by starting to walk to and from class again, since his gain is basically entirely due to inactivity. His classes start tomorrow. This morning, I was supposed to have some eggs & sausage, but there was too much bloating for me to feel hungry so I guess I'll just be having potatoes today. I boiled about 2 lbs last night, I hope that's enough for one day, but I'll have to boil more tonight anyway.
I'm using up some Threelac that has been hanging in the cupboard for a while. As long as it works well enough with the potato starch, that will save me a bit of money this month that I otherwise would have had to spend on probiotics. I'll be out of the cal/mag butyrate after dinner tonight and not sure I want/need to get more. I guess I'll wait and see.
I am going to be able to put almost my entire paycheck on Friday into savings . Hooray for 3 pay-periods this month! This gives me a huge boost on my savings goals.
