It is day 3 of my Life or Death eating plan. Boosting protein, boosting vegetables, no sugar, no starches... This is the first afternoon I'm wishing I had some sweets. But it's the afternoon doldrums and I would probably be better served by taking a nap.
I have things on my mind. Thinking about my son and getting additional therapists for him. I'm thinking about the summer schedule and how it is going to mess up his therapy schedule for one month before school begins in August. There is a lot of confusion about what to do to get more hours of Hab and whether to work harder at finding a clinic or to try at home again. I just don't know.
I'm probably thirsty right now, not hungry. I am remembering that I don't really enjoy cooking all that much. I'd rather cook a larger dinner and eat the leftovers for a day or two than cook a lot of small meals. Tonight I'll cook more meat and prepare veggies to go with it. I'm just picky about re-heated hamburgers. I don't like them.
I know it will take a while before my physical symptoms of inflammation and neuropathy are lowered, but I definitely look forward to it. To be able to drive for twenty minutes and not have my hands or feet fall asleep would be great.
I wish I had the added help of an appetite suppressant in these early diet days, but I know the docs will tell me no way. While my BP has been good the past few times I've been at the doctor, it's only with meds. I have the feeling if I went off the meds, I'd be back to high BP again.
We'll see if the GYNO calls back with my test results from last week. Nothing like having the constant worry of a yeast infection... Thus another reason I'm staying off of sugar. I've got to stop feeding candida and other fungal infections. I'm an unbalanced mess of micro-organisms.
But I'm going to keep myself off of sugar. I have to until my birthday -- then I'll give myself a day of treats -- then it will be right back to the no sugar.
