Week 9 Report

8 Nov

Wow – two months today. Time is just flying by. Technically I only have a month to go, but I think I’m going to give it 3 periods worth, just to be sure….which means I’ll be GFVing it for Christmas too (or close to it anyway).

 

HOW I’M FEELING:

  • Physically: Energy and sleeping better for SURE. Other than that, it just seems so hard to quantify. Is my skin better? I don’t know, maybe. I had pretty good skin to begin with….
  • Emotionally: Fine – cried at work today, but that was only because a client gave me a super special gift….

GI SYMPTOMS:

  • Doing well. Even had a FFF today (if you’re in the know, you know this is good). Post a comment if you want to know what this is ’cause I think it’s TMI for general web consumption! 🙂

MENSTRUAL STUFF:

  • Nothing to report. Sometime this week – so next week should have more info.

WEIGHT:

  • Down 2.2 pounds!

CONFESSIONS:

  • Pizza is my nemesis. This time I paid the price. I will be seeking out an appropriate alternative soon.

SUCCESSES:

  • Making and sticking to a menu plan all week. Good for the diet and the budget!
  • Next week, I would like my success to be that I drank 2 litres of H2O every day….there, I said it – now please help me by prodding me on this when you can!

Week 8 Report (almost on time even!)

2 Nov

HOW I’M FEELING:

  • Physically: It seems as though one of my autoimmune skin things is kind of flaring up these days. Odd. I don’t like it one bit. Am I doing some more detoxing? I don’t know…..
  • Emotionally: No concerns. I think the chocolate helps….

GI SYMPTOMS:

  • Had a strange episode on Sunday morning – not feeling well AT ALL. Then it was gone. Then late last night and this morning, had those wicked intestinal cramps – sore to the touch, can’t stand up straight etc etc. My whole belly hurts when this happens. I drank a cup of hot water with a tablespoon of lemon juice and it all went away. I’m supposed to be doing this every morning, I should really work on that.

MENSTRUAL STUFF:

  • Nothing to report.

WEIGHT:

  • Down half a pound

CONFESSIONS:

  • I sampled a little bit (1cm square) of goat feta cheese the other day when we made Greek Quinoa Salad and it was delish!
  • And, last week after a long and emotional birth I was hungry. So I ate pizza – two slices. And the next day I felt fine, which was kind of unfortunate….

SUCCESSES:

  • Nothing that I can think of right now. It’s been a busy week.
