30-day no solids June Day 4

monica morning meditation

It has been a crazy day. I’ve been lost in space since I woke up this morning. So far I’ve made it through the day. I haven’t had too many moments where I’ve felt like I wanted something solid to eat. I haven’t made any blended drinks today. I’ve had only ginger and bay leaf tea, coconut water and nut butters (almond and cashew).

I know some people will make the point that nut butters are technically solids. So I should probably make it clear that when I refer to solids I am talking about food that requires chewing before it can be swallowed.

It’s the end of the day for me now.  I started writing this update this afternoon. But I got distracted by one thing after another. Right now my head is so cloudy and I’m so sleepy I’m struggling to think. But I wanted to get this update written before calling it a night.

Today was not my most productive day so I’m feeling a bit anxious on top of being sleepy and having a cloudy head. But at least I am not feeling hungry. Quite the opposite. I might have gone overboard with the nut butters today. I think I’m suffering some of the drawbacks having too much protein in my system. And it is not  a pleasant feeling.

As far as my stomach goes it is quite huge at the moment. But I suspect some of that is because I am bloated. I am expecting the “mid-cycle” cycle to start shortly. Once it starts my stomach should settle down a little bit.

Cut to 11:30PM

Hopefully I will have a more productive day tomorrow. I’ll have to file away today as a wasted day.  Can’t pull anymore tricks out of the hat. So it’s off to bed.

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.
