I feel better today, I can tell already (even though I'm writing this at only 9:41 AM). The 5-HTP helped me sleep, but I woke up probably around 6:30. 6-7 hours of sleep, interrupted by Boyfriend coming in around 2:30. Not ideal, but better than the past few nights.
My nails have been peeling all week, I need to cut them short tonight and use a file to try to get a clean start. My hands are still absurdly dry and I think that's partially due to the space heaters drying out the apartment. Would Spring please stick around already?
My breath smells like rotten meat if I don't gargle with Listerine. I was in a hurry this morning so I poured a little baking soda in water and gargled quickly with that. There's salt in the kitchen here at work, I might use that with warm water later because I'm sure this won't last long as a solution. It's not going to get better until I can get my post nasal drip under control, which means constant sudafed and/or allergy treatment.
I washed my hair with egg & castille soap this morning! I used maybe 1 tbsp mixed into a "scrambled" (mixed with a fork as though I was going to cook it for scrambled eggs) egg, I might forego it or use less next time. My hair dried super quickly and feels soft and clean. It was feeling a bit too dry after the wash so I left the water & white vinegar solution on my head for a few seconds before rinsing it out before I got out. If my hair smells like anything, I hope it's peppermint (from the castille). We'll see how my head responds to this, but it's vaguely itchy so either too much soap or didn't leave it in long enough. The egg was fun to mix into my hair, it felt very thick and lathery. And fortunately for me, the water wouldn't get very warm, so I didn't cook the egg
I'm on the hunt for a good 20-30 minute ab routine to do once a week. I did one of those "ab shredder!!!" things once last summer and I think that might be a good choice, just have to find it again. I figure that'll make it easier for me to build some core strength through KB swings and idly work on the vanity aspect of visible abs.
We start my tattoo's outline this Saturday, I'm very nervous and excited. I hope it heals quickly. I know I want to share it online (Facebook, here, any friggin' where), but I'm trying to decide if I should wait until it's totally done before I post anything (I would still take pictures of the outline and in progress).
