Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Beyond
Hard to believe over a month has gone by since I was here! Life has just been a bit overwhelming since Thanksgiving.
First we had to fix the car. The whole car debacle made Thanksgiving very hectic and therefore it was a shortened trip. It... Read more
Well, I thought I had relief. Still feeling sick off and on. I am definitely getting the sense it's stress related, but happens more when I'm ANTICIPATING something than when I am IN a stressful situation.
I think much of the stress of thi... Read more
My body is in remission from... whatever was wrong with it. At least for now. I can't say that going gluten free helped, because I definitely didn't give up gluten 100% of the time. Perhaps it needed a temporary detox or something.
I am als... Read more
I have officially begun my gluten free diet. I will start by saying... it is not fun.
I've done it before. In high school, when I was suddenly allergic to everything, I stopped eating gluten. It was horrible, and didn't last long, because t... Read more
Good news! and not-so-good news
So I went to the doctor yesterday, for this never-ending mystery sickness. She said she doesn't know what's wrong with me. She seemed irritated that I stopped eating vegetables, but I think if she were in my shoes... she'd do the same thing, at ... Read more
Progress. Sort of.
It's Saturday! And we all know why Saturdays are awesome. I get to sleep in... and I get to relax when I eat. I have never appreciated this more, since going on this adventure into Mysterious Illness-ville. I've had my fill of low-sodium soup an... Read more
I am still sick. For a few days I was actually getting better. Little by little, feeling like a normal person. I never regained my energy but I could feel the antibiotics doing their job and all the probiotics in the yogurt did their job. The sl... Read more
Thoughts on motivation
For the first time in my life I have something to be truly motivated about. You see, I actually don't care that much about being overweight, at least on the surface. I am quite happy being a plus-sized woman, because it's never kept me from real... Read more
I'm just going to admit it... this was not a great week. Parts of it were quite bad.
Now, people that know me, know that unsolicited advice is a quick way to piss me off. So if I say I had a bad week, just let me have my feelings. Don't gi... Read more
Very slowly feeling better. Not all the way better, just... better than last week, I guess.
I do get to have a little fun this week, though. Typically I don't track food on the weekends, but I'm trading Saturday and Sunday for Thursday and ... Read more
The uphill climb
I ate too much food yesterday. Not all at once, but over time. I can reasonably blame it on being sick. And not being able to track my food at all times. (Because I don't have a smart phone, so anybody about to say "download the app!" can shut u... Read more
All drugged up
At this point, I'm really glad I committed myself to not tracking calories on the weekends.... because otherwise I wouldn't be able to eat anything. I went to the dentist (YAY!!!!) but now I can't eat anything hard/crunchy/hot/cold/chewy/et

Being sick really makes everything hard. I mean, being sick is hard normally. But when you're trying to track every calorie you eat, it's insanely difficult. Add to the equation my wisdom teeth finally coming in (and making my head feel like it'... Read more
Just got back from my retreat, about 2 hours ago. Man.... I'm tired. But I feel SO GOOD. I had forgotten how big that hill was, and how much walking there was... I mean, sheesh!
I have also begun to eat vegetables again, but the sickness h... Read more
A bump in the road
I went to the emergency room last night. It was the first time I'd ever been to a hospital as the patient. I've visited relatives, friends. I've never been the one with the little plastic bracelet.
I've been experience flu-related symptoms... Read more
