I have survived 5 days!!! This seems so small, but when you can only eat a few things and that you don't particularly care for, it is very hard. I was able to add some things back after day 3, and was happier. I also made the decision that I will NOT follow the suggestion to not add fat in the beginning. I NEED it!! I added CO to my veggies and scrambled eggs and felt a lot better. I highly doubt I have a coconut oil intolerance!! It has not straightened out the elimination piece as I had hoped yet, but this lack of fresh foods is probably a shock to my system. I have to have all pureed veggies and fruits and I am used to eating mostly raw and roasted. I was supposed to be eating "chicken soup" which was really chicken bone broth and plain chicken only, but I just can't! I ate the cooked chicken plain with some salt, and froze the broth. Something about the plain broth made me nauseous! But I can eat it just fine with things with flavor!! I am going to make new SCD compliant batches of sausage and kale soup, Buffalo chicken soup, and cream of broccoli. I thought that I would hate the plain gelatin made with 100% grape but I didn't. It was OK. I am going to make my next batch with pure cranberry, I want to cut the sugar on that and I like cranberry. I like sour flavors. I will save my carbs for pureed fruits this week, and additional vegetables!
Otherwise, I have been very tired all week,which started while I was sick and I never really got over. If I hadn't JUST had labs drawn I would think my thyroid was off. I am not sure what it is, but I am SOO sleepy!! Maybe just the winter getting to me. IDK. I am usually up all night and I have been falling asleep in the chair and then getting in bed early for me. I don't always go to sleep right away but I feel so good just RESTING! I was up early today because the dog woke me, but I was still so TIRED. I got 7+ hours I think...felt like 4!!
I am off now for my weekend and it could not have come soon enough!! I have been too tired to work out, but I NEED to, and Charlie is showing signs of being pent up! He is BARKING!! He NEVER did that!! He was a great neighbor dog, he would only bark to call you, and if something was really out of the ordinary. Camping, we had people come by and remark on how good he was and how LITTLE they heard him. Now, he is barking like a maniac at IDK what!! He has to just be bored and frustrated. We haven't been out in a long time for any decent walk or run. I never left the house last week until Sunday and I went out during the superbowl so he couldn't come (pet stores closed by then). The good thing is we have honed his coming when called, for ME at least!! He still looks at DH like he has 3 heads and runs away!!
Mommy has always been the disciplinarian!! But also the comforter!
I have to try and restrain myself from spending money I don't have at a Pampered Chef party tomorrow!! I am a stoneware addict, and love their knives as well!! It will be fun no matter what, but temptation is great to blow my budget and use my cards!!
