All in all, my anniversary weekend was quite nice . Saturday, after the car dealership, we talked about doing a double-date with a friend and his fairly-new girlfriend. We drove past a roller rink and Hulky expressed interest in doing that, so we're going to see if that works for the other couple . Hulky used to skate as a kid, very often. I have gotten on roller blades only a handful of times and not in recent years. Hulky also said he'd be interested in rollerblading for exercise/fun. I said if he's sure he'll do it, he should absolutely buy some skates. It's great to see him interested in something active/outside. Saturday night, we got ice cream and went to see the Supermoon, got some bugbites and went home. Sunday, I gave him his tungsten ring, we vegged, baked the anniversary cake (delicious), hung out with a friend at our place, and made chili for dinner. I wore my wedding dress on Sunday .
Food: I had rice last night, as an exception for our anniversary, but no more rice for a while. After the cake is gone, there'll be no more paleo baking for a while. After today's lunch is eaten, I won't be having garlic, onions, beans, or tomatoes until I test those individually. I am working my way down, step by step, to my elimination diet. Tonight, I must bake up some squash!
Sleep: I think I am sleeping better. I did not sleep well most of last week, but I feel much less exhausted today, even though I stayed up late over the weekend and didn't sleep in.
Ear: the infected piercing is healing up, slowly. Warm sea salt compresses twice a day, plus I'm using Bactine spray. Probably not advised, but fuck it. It's my hole to mess up. I'm keeping my hair off that ear with a bobby pin.
Hair: I am shooting to make it 5 days between washings, which means the next one will be on Wednesday. I am going to decrease the amount of baking soda to 2 tsp (2.5 tsp = 1 TB which is what I was using before) to see if that keeps my hair from getting greasy so quickly. I don't think it's the ACV, since I'm only using that on the ends of my hair, but I'll probably reduce that in the same way if this next adjustment doesn't work. It could also just be that I've been too sweaty or something so my hair isn't being as cooperative in general. I bought some hair elastics over the weekend: my hair is long enough for pigtails
Body: rain forecast is throwing off my bicycling yet again. Probably won't be able to ride until Thursday.
