Paleo AIP Day #44 - Cashew Introduction

Tuesday August 18th, 2015

Day 99... 

Tomorrow is a big day for me, celebrating 100 days since I started this journey, at which time I had no idea how it would all turn out. I had stubborn pride on the line while harboring fears wrought of years of failure after failure to control the toll Hashimoto's was taking on my body and my psyche. I don't know that I truly believed I could succeed. I'm glad that I finally reached the point of "fuck it" and decided to do the most obvious but hardest thing there is - change my life.

Enough of the waxing philosophical! I will be doing a lot more of that tomorrow; let's just save it for then, eh?

Today is cashew day!!!!

I just happened to have a small bag of raw cashew pieces in my pantry, and last night I took care of them proper (soaked for a few hours, dried in the oven on the lowest temp overnight). They aren't as crispy as I would have imagined, but they're delish! I had a few while I was making breakfast for the dogs because I was frigging hungry this morning (odd, but I'll go with it) and I've just had a few more following breakfast. Now we wait!

We're having a very cool morning for this time of year (55 degrees when I woke with a shiver) but the sun is out and the weather should be fab for my interval training at lunch time. I can't wait! Had such a great outing on Saturday that I want to repeat it badly. It's like a deep itch that I can't quite scratch, savvy? I think I'm going to be partner-less today because it's someone's birthday and that means some will be lunching out. Pas moi!

Vitals:

Weight: 146
Energy level: Great
BM: Eek - not yet!
Other Gastro: Nothing to report

This is a short post, so have a picture of my cutey pie to make up for it:
