Advice on the kindle fire: Kindle Fire Root! [New][6.2.1] - YouTubeI wonder if it can go the other way, crack a Kindle for the Nook apps? My dad got a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I think he might enjoy fiddling with it. I just found a guide for how to root it to use Android Apps though, so that's pretty sweet for a cheap tablet option! [[repeats to self I don't need a tablet, I don't need a tablet...]]
Yesterday's food: 1/2 lb ground beef w/ seasoning for breakfast (boring I know, but didn't have time for the veggies). Peckish by later afternoon. Dinner was scrumptious chicken thighs with roasted onions & carrots. I was hungry after and had two sweet potatos with ghee (one was quite small) and then ate some Trader Joe's coconut oil straight out of the jar... I keep forgetting that I can't do that. I ended up feeling very nauseous and like barfing would be the best option, but I didn't. The TJ's CO is very good though, it reminded me of those Girl Scout cookies I used to like (ones with the hole in the middle, with coconut & chocolate?). I probably won't use it much until I am trying out eggs again. Anyway, I felt a bit off this morning still and my BM reflected some poor food choices (very soft and...a lot). I feel better now.
Symptoms: "digestive disturbances" as described above. Congestion is clearing minimally, but still have pressure in ears and runny nose, sore throat etc. Will do neti pot within an hour of bed tonight. Did not sleep well last night, I need to adjust the thermostat (bedroom was HOT).
I'm a bit tired of chicken and all we have are chicken thighs in the freezer!
Brain: Focus and mood are back to normal (good), especially now that I'm back on Tyrosine. I haven't had any problems with grinding gears while driving since adding back the Tyrosine either. Guess I'll be keeping that for a while! I probably will continue to take a week off every few months though. I don't think the 5-HTP is working for me anymore. I'm going to try taking 1 pill at dinner and 1 before bed tonight. If an increased dose doesn't help, I may just stop for a while.
Boyfriend and I are dreaming about a vacation over his spring break. Realistically we should be saving up for a cheap washer & dryer, but since we'd have to arrange for getting the moved and he's out of commission, it's likely that we won't be getting either for a while. It's nice to have another $ goal though. If we do go on vacation, we'll probably buy tickets soon, so it's even more important that I spend wisely this month! We'd really like to go somewhere warm.
BTW He's getting surgery. I went with boyfriend to his appointment this morning and got to see the MRI. The labral ligament has separated from the bone & bicep tissue, or something like that. Some people apparently opt to "live with it", but since his pain is constant (not just when he moves it), he's going for the surgery, next week on Friday. 1 week in a sling, 2-3 months of physical therapy, 6-8 months to full recovery (or being able to rock climb, since that's what he wants to do). I will probably join him in rock climbing once he's recovered. I hope my natural fear of heights (not really over the top, but the heart does get a-racing) doesn't hold me back!
Tell him good luck with the surgery. I would get the surgery too.
I hate surgery.
That's all that matters.Brain: Focus and mood are back to normal (good), especially now that I'm back on Tyrosine.
