Slept o.k. from 10:30-8. Woken multiple times by itching. I even iced my chest several to try to stop scratching, since scratching is making it worse.
Taking a nice walk with my girls, feeding horses, and seeing foals
Bananas 'n berries
Pulling weeds is so easy after some rain
That salad dressing recipe is super-yummy!
Itchy rash in various spots on my chest, stomach, arms, and legs
White coating on my tongue
Swollen, dark under-eye circles in the morning
Minor redness and bumpiness on forehead, nose and chin
I tend to be very prone to inflammation. I swell up badly with insect bites. I was looking for home remedies online since I'm going insane and one of them is to rub the inside of a banana peel on the itch. So, I'm going to try that and report back.
Today is day 90. I'm a little worn down from this detox, so maybe you guys can bring the celebration to me and remind me that this is worth it. I guess honestly, I just feel at a loss to why I don't seem to get over this hump of ditching the cooked dinners, especially when I have extra motivation to do it.
