I have made it to the halfway point. Today was tough, but I got through it. I stayed busy dividing my time between working and cleaning the apartment. I’m pretty amazed by how much housework I was able to get done today. It was almost like I was my old self. The only times I’ve seen that self in the last several years have been the occasions when I had to clean because family was coming to visit. I’ve managed to get the living room nearly spotless. I’ve cleared out the shelves in the little alcove where I have my desk setup. And it was a hot mess. Everything was a hot mess. I work out of my living room so I had clothes and shoes, arts & crafts stuff, fabric, dumbbells, yoga mat, books, lighting equipment, jewelry–you name it and you could find it strewn somewhere in the living room and in my actual office area.

Somehow I managed to get downstairs cleaned up and looking decent. Tomorrow I will tackle my bedroom (at least that’s the plan for today).

Another day of the 30-day no solids mission completed successfully. And another day of not giving fibroids control over my life.

Basically just ate cashew butter and blended soup today. I find that cashew butter works better than almond butter for warding off hunger.

Today’s blended soup was made with kale, zucchini, and yellow squash. For flavor I used fresh garlic, an onion and salt. I included almonds for some additional protein and other nutrients.

I know my blended soup pics are probably getting annoying; but I have 15 more days to go doing this 30-day no-solids things. So you might see a few more pics.

For now I am going to wrap this up because I can barely think. I am way sleepy. I think I’ll call it a night.

My name is Monica. I have fibroids. My fibroids are large enough that they have transformed my figure into something I am still trying to learn how to live with. In the meantime while I try to learn how to live with my fibroids I am also trying every possible method I can find to try to shrink them naturally because I am afraid of the idea of a hysterectomy. I lived with fibroids from 2007 - 2016. I started documenting my experiences on this blog in 2012. On March 7th 2016 I had a hysterectomy out of concern that I might have ovarian cancer. It did not turn out that I had ovarian cancer. The cancer scare forced the hysterectomy I was trying to avoid, and so, I became fibroid free as of March 7th 2016. I will try to keep this blog up and running in the hope that it will be of some use to others going through what I went through.
