    Oh, and the word "on" in my response to your use of the F word was supposed to be Oh... typos...

    Heehee. I should try and see how many different 'o' words can be used, and still have that sentence make sense!

    Felt very stressed through most yesterday, alternately thinking about the job situation and trying NOT to think about it. If not doing the dishes is so easy, why is not worrying equally so?

    It is going to be another, 'you're doing a great job, here, train your replacement who we're getting from India at half price' situation.

    I told him he should make that his specialty, learn some more Hindi, and make a regular business out of it, since it looks like it is going to be happening all the time, now. Maybe he could charge more. Sigh.

    I meant to stay very busy yesterday, to make the fasting fly by, but stress turns me into a blithering idiot, and instead I seemed to have frittered the whole day away. Even missed skyping with Eldest. We are going to try again today.

    And yet, I kept to the fast. This has been the easiest day yet, in terms of hunger. The only problem was cleaning up after dinner for Littlest and Honey. I had to sort of chant to myself, 'don't lick the spoon, don't lick the spoon.'

    You would think that after a fasting day, one would wake, raring to eat. But I've been up for an hour now, and still feeling normal, stomach-wise. Here's how yesterday went:

    Up at 5:45

    Water: 9 glasses
    Walking: 45"
    Pains: yes

    Bed at 9:30

    Today I will be avoiding beef, chicken, and dairy. I figure it can't hurt, especially since I have salmon and pork in the house.

    But I did some more research on the Eat for Your Type plan, and since I can see no information on how he decides which food have which lectins in them to decided which blood types they were 'bad' for, I'm going to call shenanigins on taking it too seriously.(Simplified concepts following!) I can believe that the receptors on blood interact differently based on their shape. But then it seems a simple matter to say, look, these lectins are shaped to interact negatively with B, these with A, etc. But there's no explanation of how the foods were tested, or even an assertation that they were tested.

    A rebuttal argument brings out the very interesting tidbit, that for three of the blood types, he recommends no wheat. The one blood type allowed wheat is abut 5% of the population. So 95% of people who try the diet, may have success just because they are dropping wheat. Something to think about.

    Okay, Monday was my time to be in shock(about the job), yesterday was the day for being sad, depressed, and scared. Today I want to get back to getting things done. Those dishes aren't going to do themselves.

    Sabine, I have the "Eat Right for Your Type" book. I'll send it to you if you are really interested. It is in the give away pile. PM me your address if you want it.

    Oh, I forgot a thing which the chiropractor said which I thought was interesting.

    She asked me what I had for dinner the night before.

    Pork chop with red pepper pesto(olive oil, walnuts, pine nuts), cauliflower with cheese and egg, and 2 squares of dark chocolate.

    Oh, too much food, she said.

    I said, really, I thought it was very moderate.

    The portions may have been moderate, but you have too many kinds of food there. Your body doesn't know what to work on.

    Now, I have read a little on food combining. I actually got into low-carb the first time, years ago, after reading Suzanne Somer's book, which is mostly food combining. It makes sense to me, but after I essentially eliminated one of the 'food groups' I never really had to worry about combining, because I didn't have starch meals to contend with.

    So, in terms of macros, that meal was mostly protein and fat, with about 5g carbs from vegetables, and 5g from the sugar in the chocolate. Doesn't seem like so many carbs that it would cause a ruckus, but hey, it is another easy thing to try.

    Or maybe she meant meat protein, nut protein, cheese protein, egg protein, two kinds of veggies, plus chocolate? I wouldn't think stomach acid would be picky enough to judge between different proteins, but maybe it is!

    So for breakfast this morning I decided to have eggs scrambled in ghee(Alright, it is sort of dairy, but the milk solids are removed, so I'm eating it!). That's it. No cheese(of course) but no grilled veggies, either. Or additional protein sources. Two pure ingredients.

    Delicious.

    Interesting what your chiropractor had to say. It'll be interesting to see what your doctor has to say about the pains. I hope today is pain free for you.

    I have yet to see the new picture of Mark lounging with computer. I did see the series of balancing ones.

    Here's what I did yesterday:

    Up at 5:30

    7:45 2 eggs + 2 yolks, scrambled in
    1T ghee

    11:30 1 salmon patty, heated in
    coconut oil
    2T homemade mayo

    4:30 1 bratwurst
    niwatori slaw with chicken removed
    1 chocolate/coconut oil covered frozen kiwi slice (interesting)

    9:45 porkchop with
    red pepper pesto

    Water: 9 glasses
    Walking: 45"
    Pains: fewer, increasing again after 5:30

    Bed at 11:00

    I chose to avoid the last of the Candy's nomac and cheese, because of the dairy, but it made me sad. I'll try to get my Honey to eat up the rest of it today, so I won't be tempted. It's so good.

    I've been eating later, I notice. Part of it may be staying up later for Spring Break kid activities, but I think there is also an element of 'I'm fasting tomorrow, so I'll have something now'. Also, last night, I was plain old hungry at 9:00pm. If I had been going to bed, I would have skipped eating, but I was still up for child transport duties, so I went ahead and ate.

    The only thing with preservatives in it yesterday was the bratwurst, and, interestingly, an increase in the pains about an hour later. Makes me think it IS my gut being irritated. This did not stop me from having my imagination go wild, and imagining myself fighting cancer. I could actually feel the histimine rush through my body. Did some deep breathing and tried to calm down. When that was only halfway successful, resorted to distracting myself by singing along with the car radio. Sometimes an active imagination is a real curse.

    Seem to be having a harder time getting my water in. Even when I am thirsty, I don't feel like slugging down a full glass. Don't know why.

    Today I am meeting a friend to work on a project together. I know her husband is making us salads for lunch. Not sure how I am going to handle it. Try and have just a small portion? Say I am giving my system a rest? I don't know if I want to get into all the details. I think about it enough as it is, without talking about it some more.

    I finally saw Mark balancing. He's a hottie

    I don't know where I've read it, but seem to have come across it a lot lately. Something about eating only 1 or 2 foods at a time makes it easier on the digestive system. I don't remember the logic, but if I come across some of the discussion again, I'll post the link. I grew up eating only 1 or 2 things with a meal (i.e., meat + potatoes), so I'm actually happy to eat that way. DH, on the other hand, grew up with eating a million small things (and lots of sauces, etc.), so he is not happy when I make meat + 1 veggie.
