Struggling so far today. Emotions low and so feeling frustrated that I can’t eat. But so far I haven’t succumbed to the urge to give this thing up. I can’t see any way I’m going to make it to 30 days though.
Needed to make myself feel a little better so I had my husband bring home a dairy free gluten free vanilla ice cream. It has definitely helped me to feel a little bit better even if it hardly tastes like ice cream. It breaks from the monotony of nut butter.
My stomach is still going through what it does during the weeks and days leading up to my cycle. I’m choosing not to worry about it since I know it’s cycle related and will go down once my cycle starts, which judging by my mood today should be pretty soon.
I really need to come up with some ideas for a wider variety of things I can eat over the remaining 23 days of this 30-day mission. I think the boredom will be the main reason I quit early.
Cut to 5:37PM
I had taken some time away to go looking for ideas of foods I can eat that won’t require chewing. In researching ideas, I read stories from people who are dealing with seriously debilitating healthy problems. It made me realize that I have a lot for which to be grateful. I have fibroids but I’m not really in crisis. Things can change in the blink of an eye, sure. But for now everything is okay.
As far as food ideas go I didn’t come up with much of anything. I’ll have to try some other blended soup recipes. Maybe I’ll put broccoli to the test to see if I can start tolerating it again. I was having bad reactions to garlic and onions but that seems to have passed so maybe broccoli will be fine to try again. I’ll need to go the grocery store to pick up some vegetables.
In the meantime I have just enough veggies to make a blended soup for dinner tonight. It will be more kale and spinach; but today I’ll add a zucchini and a yellow squash.
