Every time I have something wrong with me or I don’t feel well, Joe laughs at me because my go-to assessment of the situation is, “I must be detoxing.”
I probably did think that a couple times, but now I just say it because he expects me to.
Side note: I feel awful right now. I have a horrible “hangover” feeling, but it’s not from drinking too much. I’m not going to speculate what is causing it—I’m just going to hope I sleep it off!
I don’t have a specific topic for this post, but just a few random things.
1. Thanks to the people who commented and/or emailed me about the fertility and food post. It was hard to keep it short and simple—I really had to stop myself from explaining everything in-depth—but that would have turned into a book! I also thought of some things to add (like coconut oil and chlorella), but maybe I’ll just do a Part 2 at some point.
2. My mom texted me earlier to ask if I wanted to hang out in bed with her. So I ran across the street with my air-dried hair to get in bed and talk (I really hope no one saw me–I wasn’t planning on leaving the house today). That’s my “place.” You know how Meredith is Christina’s “person” on Grey’s Anatomy? Well, my Mom is my person, and hanging out in bed with her is my place. It reminds me of when Matthew was tiny and he spent weekends with us (when I lived with my Mom)…we’d lay in bed for hours, and Matthew would play fishing and diving.
3. Elimination diet update: for two days straight (even though I have rot gut and a stabbing headache), I have really been crave-y. I’m just mouth hungry, not belly hungry—but damnit, I want to eat a piece of toast or something! Joe had bagel pizzas for dinner, and I just sat there next to him and smelled the pizzas. That actually kind of helped. I need to re-group and try some new recipes this week, so I can feel like I’m getting more variety. I’ve had several people ask me to post what it is I actually eat on an elimination diet, so I’ll do that in a couple days. I have high hopes for this research study I’m doing on myself, there will be no cheating no matter how crazy I feel!
I feel the need to reiterate this: I really hope dairy is not an issue for me. I don’t know if I can live (happily) without cheese.
This week is going to be great for me—I have a lot of work to do, but also a lot of time budgeted in to work on my other projects. I dislike winter, but there’s nothing much to do except be productive (or hibernate)!
How was your weekend? Any real hangovers going on?
Do you get Sunday night dread about starting a new week? I used to when I was stressed out about work…but now, I’m way too happy with my jobs to dread anything.
