11:00-8:00 Sleep was interrupted sometime in the early morning by an experience that reminded me of a hemorrhoids commercial--itching, burning, pain. Was able to fall back asleep eventually and it had mostly subsided once I woke up.
2 hour nap in the afternoon, which messed with my sleep for the next night
An awesome workout and that post-workout happiness
Getting 3 cases of replacement mangos
Awesome butter lettuce from the farmer's market
Watching my little guy interact with lots of people in stores--he is so funny and friendly and curious
White coating on my tongue upon awakening
Dark puffy under-eye circles in the morning
An enormous, corn-filled bowel movement (felt much better after that)
Increased redness and bumpiness on forehead, nose and chin
Sore raw spot on the inside of my lower lip
Moderate... kinda crabby and down today.
Seems like a downward spiral with the salty cooked food. I don't enjoy the symptoms they give me. Had some cravings during my shopping trip this morning. I haven't had those in awhile. I was thinking about going to a Chinese buffet and chowing down on a bunch of fried salty food. I did not, but it was unsettling. I realize that my calorie consumption has been crawling downward lately. Also, today I physically measured out my beans and rice. Seems like I may have been over-estimating some of my portions (specifically the cooked foods) recently, so the calorie counts may have been slightly above what I actually consumed.
I bought only conventional food today, no organics (other than the Farmer's Market lettuce and spinach) so that I could try to get more food within my budget. Hopefully my dates will get here this week, too! I truly am grateful for the abundance I have and the prices available and I will try to focus on that rather than wishing I was in Hawaii or Thailand. :)
I am going to do updated pictures and a summary post when I hit 60 days soon. Does anybody have any questions that they would like me to answer? I have a couple from Grape Nut and February Girl, thanks!
Also, I don't have anybody confirmed for my greens party yet. If you are able to come, I'd LOVE to see you!
