GAPS Healing Diet Day #5

Monday June 22nd, 2015

Typical Monday: too much to do, too little time. I took my latest batch of bone broth from the stove, cooled and strained it and it is gorgeous. I added a couple of tablespoons of it into my breakfast puree of green beans, zucchini, chicken and broth and it definitely added a spark of yummy. I still have some of my sickly, yellow beef broth left to finish before I dive into this latest batch though. Slow down, girl!

Went to see Dr. Jessica this morning and it seems that I'm making some progress. She put me on a few more supplements to support my thyroid, clear me of pesticides (not sure where those came from??), but nothing for the adrenals yet because my results didn't come back from the damn lab. I mailed that sucker two weeks ago today. Damn it. More waiting.

Vitals:

Weight: 158.2
Energy level: Good
BM: Nope
Other Gastro: Got a little nauseated after eating my puree this morning, and I'm hearing some noise but nothing is really happening.
Mental clarity: Good
Mood: Meh. I have a hair trigger lately, and my mood is very much in flux. Not just fly-off-the-handle anger, but emotional (weepy eyes) which is highly unusual for me. Highly. And I hate it!
Exercise: Bandit refused to walk this morning, the little turd. Hoping the gals want to venture out today, I need to break in my new shoes. If they say it's too hot for them I will gleefully go run intervals by my-damn-self.
Other: Sheesh, I was still grumpy in that comment above! I got the gals to do intervals, it wasn't that hot out (maybe 80) and it was fun. I can handle it! I didn't get all exhausted or light headed or anything! So exciting. I swear this is what my body has been craving. Time to get back to work on my running.
