Day 4 - Atkin's Induction

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Feeling much better today. Still a little sluggish and foggy brained, but no headache and I actually got a little work done. I went to bed last night at 10 and didn't get up until 7:30. Must have needed that.

I have learned a few things today.
1. I *love* the smell virgin coconut oil. I wonder if I could just stick a wick in it and make it a candle :) yum!

2. I wasn't drinking as much water as I thought I was drinking. I took a gallon container and filled it with 64 oz. I made it through it, but it was a an effort. I always thought I was drinking at least that just filling up my water bottle.

3. I don't care what anyone says: Pork rinds are NASTY.

4. Salt is a good thing. I made some chicken broth and sprinkled more salt on dinner. I feel like I am breaking so many taboos. It has been drummed into me that salt is bad. Fat is bad. Red meat..bad. My husband, who use to give me disapproving looks when passing the salt shaker, is now asking if I got enough salt in my day. I feel a little like Alice going down the hole.

ďBut I donít want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you canít help that," said the Cat: "weíre all mad here. Iím mad. Youíre mad."
"How do you know Iím mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, or you wouldnít have come here.Ē

PS How do you know when someone makes you a sparkfriend? I have people thanking me for adding them, but I don't see where it tells me when I have a new friend so I can thank them. Anyone know?
