Coming Back to Myself; #Paleo; #Bipolar
Alcohol is bad, yo. Oh, Geez. lol. (Bonus points for getting that reference.)
Seriously, though. Super-clean Paleo has helped so much in a relatively short time. I feel so much less over-emotional, way more balanced. Sort of flat, but in comparison, it would be – doesn’t mean it’s not properly emotional.
I’m still waiting to see how things go during my next Shark Week, but I’m very hopeful. My psychologist believes I’m coming out of the crisis. *knock on wood*
At some point I will test that alcohol thing, though. Have to know if it’s something I will have to avoid forever.
Hubby and I made a safety phrase, but haven’t had cause to use it the last two weeks – fantastic! I did use it after the Presidential debates last night, though. Just saying it was enough to derail a pissy mood.
Weight is down to 224.2 as of this morning.
Had a little UTI, or something, happen yesterday. I’m tentative today about having coffee.. I’m afraid that might be the culprit. I really don’t want to give it up completely. I’m already down from 6-8 cups to 2 a day. Starting today slow w/ just one cup & see how it goes. Also, drinking more lemonade before I start on the coffee. I’m guessing that drinking nothing but black coffee until early afternoon might not be the best things for my kidneys, etc.
So happy – I just ordered ~13 pounds of grass-fed Prime Rib for Christmas. We will probably use half of it, then split the other half into couple-size ‘date night’ portions & freeze those.
We’ve pulled back on items my son can eat to test out some more food intolerances. He’s still having GI issues, so we’ve eliminated the remaining grains we were allowing him – sourdough bread, brown rice, etc. In other Bionic Boy news, he’s now healed enough to be out of the wheelchair & using crutches. Six more weeks & we redo the X-rays again, maybe put the crutches away. Six weeks or so after that, and maybe he has surgery again to get the titanium rods removed.
I sure hope I can have some bubbly to celebrate that day.
