Just a Very Quick Update
I’m not sure if my blah day today (just kind of tired, and not very motivated) is because the weather has warmed up again (back into the 90s), or because I screwed up and didn’t order my adrenal support in time, so I only had one yesterday…and none today, but I was actually feeling better earlier in the week.
I’m not entirely sure, but I think I’ve been mostly gluten-free again for thirteen days. And I have felt better. There is still improvement in the fluid retention issues but, as with most of my plans, it’s easier to make them than it is to follow through. However, I am slowly getting everything added in.
Monday can’t get here soon enough though. I can hardly wait to get the delivery for the adrenal support. This time I ordered two bottles.
I’ve been doing better about using the coconut oil twice a day. As soon as it’s habit, I’ll bump it up to three times daily.
And I really am going to do better with the juicing and smoothies this week. I tried something different with my smoothie yesterday…adding a quarter of a cup of rolled oats. It’s…different. Not awful, but it will take some getting used to. I’m picking up more Greek yogurt tomorrow, too, and will be using about half a cup in each one. I might…maybe add a couple of leaves of kale, or some spinach leaves, but I’m not really sure yet. My goal is to make them like a meal replacement shake…only with all nutrition and ZERO additives and preservatives.
So anyway…that’s where I’m at. I will add one more thing. It’s been miserably hot for most of the spring and summer, so I don’t really think the heat today has impacted how I feel (I do have air conditioning). I’m guessing the adrenal support makes a bigger difference than I realized.
One more quick note… It’s been slightly more than four months since I stopped using the electronic cigarettes. The vast majority of the time, I don’t think about them. But days like today…it’s very hard to not want to buy more. I don’t…and I won’t, but I’d have thought the worst would be over by now. Maybe I’m just not remembering how long it bothered me when I gave up the real things.
