GAPS Healing Diet Day #11

Sunday June 28th, 2015

Where does the time go? Last time I was paying attention it was May 10th or 11th. Cripe sakes, summer is in full swing and flying by! How do I not see this coming every year? 

So, today. I slept more than 8 hours, which is a blessing. I put up my first two attempts at sauerkraut (one head each of red and white cabbage). I'm completely blown away that an entire head of cabbage fits into a 1 quart jar after massaging it for 10 minutes (to start breaking it down) and letting it sit for 10 minutes (to allow water to seep out). I started with two heads and ended up with two jars. No wonder the stuff is so expensive! But seriously... it's really, really expensive.

Keeping it really short and sweet today because I have some running around to do, and I want to get it done so that I can finish laundry and leave some 'do nothing' time for myself to spend reading in my rocker. I love reading in my rocker! I'm also really sucking at having one 'do nothing' day each week. It's not easy to accomplish no matter how much one wants to. Must make a better effort at that, if only for my stress level. Stress doesn't  help in the healing process.

Vitals:

Weight: 156.6 (!!!)
Energy level: Good
BM: Yes, right off the bat this morning :-)
Other Gastro: Nothing to report
Mental clarity: Good
Mood: Good
Exercise: Walked both dogs, then went for a 3.7 mile interval training walk/jog. Good stuff.

Other: Running makes me very hungry, have to figure out how I'm going to battle the between meal hungies. Could be a problem.
