Paleo AIP Day #2

Tuesday July 7th, 2015

I'm on the fence today.

I was reading one of my Paleo cookbooks and it stated clearly that a recurrence or increase in headaches is a reaction when introducing new foods. I have had a raging headache every evening since trying eggs, which makes me think that I'm having an adverse reaction. Is this true? I honestly don't know. But I can easily leave eggs out of my diet again and try in a couple of weeks, see how that goes. My next introduction is seed spices (fennel, black pepper, cumin, mustard, and caraway - I'll start with fennel because I use it a lot), then I'll try some seeds (sunflower, maybe pumpkin, sesame), and then maybe eggs again.

Come to think of it, I used some pepper on Saturday and Sunday - that could be what I'm reacting to. Damn it! I should have known that I can't just eat things and be all la-di-da about it. Bad dog, no pepper! Now I will avoid that for a few days and see if the headaches go away. I put it on the eggs because I don't like eggs without pepper, and I didn't even think about the fact that I could have a reaction to it. Oh balls.Slow down, K-dawg!

The great news is that I'm finally in my smaller jeans! By the looks of it I could've been in them a few days ago, because today I'm wearing what were my tightest size 10 and they fit perfectly. I'm so excited about this development! I'm also excited that I don't need to buy any new jeans because I have quite a few of the 10s on hand, I just haven't been in them for about a year or so. Maybe less but it seems like fucking forever.
