So I'm at a loss as to what to discuss today b/c I feel really icky. My sinuses are really dragging me down. Right now I'm doped up on a cocktail of Bendryl, Sudafed and Tylenol. Not much relief to be had, either.
I've started taking a tart cherry supplement for inflammation. Each morning I was waking up with stiff ankles and I'd literally shuffle to my daughter's room when she'd call. I spoke with someone about this (a Paleo life coach) and she suggested I take tart cherry instead of more Fish Oil (that was my question - can I take more fish oil). I started taking it last week. But I still had stiffness in my AM. then it dawned on me... Geesh, dummy! Take the cherry at night so it is able to reduce inflammation while sleeping, and use the Fish Oil for during the day inflammation. Geesh... lol So, I took it last night. Today, no shuffling to my baby's crib. Nice!
I wanna brag about this a bit... I got an A in both of my classes this term. So far, since starting my graduate program, my lowest grade was an A-... All of my classes have been graded on papers we've written, so apparently I'm a pretty good writer...
Now I just have to figure out what I want to do my Work Action Plan on (have to find a project to tackle at work that I can write about) and my thesis... the thesis has me worried. I have one semester left to figure it out. Then I have to start writing. I would like to do something about the paleo lifestyle, but it has to tie into leadership somehow and I'm just not sure how to connect them.
I have an appointment with the psychiatrist today at 1230 CDT. I wonder how that's going to go... I'll inform her that I've stopped my meds, and she'll see that I've lost 29 lbs (it'll probably look like 20 lbs to her since I've eaten and lost some weight before the last appointment). I'm sure she'll be interested and intrigued by my progress. I look forward to shocking her with it.
And right now, I am so frustrated with Microsoft Outlook. It is so incredibly slow today! Freezing up constantly! I'm trying to clean up the calendars and it keeps giving me the spinning circle of death. I hate Outlook.
Other than that, I'm doing well. Day 15 of the Whole30. No binges or cheats so far. Doing great. Total loss is 7 lbs to date. Yippee!
