It's been a pretty good weekend.
Hunger: appropriate. I've dialled back the protein a bit because I don't really want to go from always hungry on sugar to always feeling mildly ill on heaps of protein. I like feeling hungry - it's one of the joys of life that I'm trying to connect to
Energy: improving. I did some garden/pool maintenance stuff, went shopping, put the Xmas tree up - and laughed while I did it.
Cravings: Absolutely. None.
Movement: as above. No formal walking or exercises but I kept moving
Play: Hmmm. I didn't even try. I got some enjoyment out of life, but could have put some play in there
Food: Ate 3 meals a day, focusing on protein. At present I'm quite low carb - nothing starchy and minimal fruit. That will change any day now, I'm sure, and I'll go with it. No sugar at all from Friday evening, but had some very nice icecream on Friday afternoon.
Protein intake: probably around 80 - 100g, including dairy. Lots of eggs
Sleep: I'm dreaming a lot - that could correlate to more serotonin from the protein. Feeling rested though.
Bloat: quite significantly bloated after eating but it goes down after a couple of hours
Pain: some niggles - I used neurophen last night
Other:I was very checked out on Friday - irritable when I was interrupted. I was on my own Friday night until mid-morning Saturday. Honestly I could have done with another day of quiet. I stayed sad and grumpy til Sunday morning, then seemed to pick up mood-wise. No checking out at all last night, and feeling OK so far today. I'm still trying to recognise my triggers, which is bloody hard from the inside
