It’s a beautiful sunny Thursday morning. Cold but I’m indoors so I can’t complain. Started my morning with a couple cups of ginger and turmeric tea. Followed that with a drink of kale and spinach blended in coconut water with more ginger and turmeric.kale spinach turmeric ginger coconut water 2

I did use a bit too much ginger and turmeric in the blended kale spinach drink. Hoping it doesn’t cause me any issues with my stomach as the day progresses.

All is well at the moment. Not planning on eating any solid food today. Trying to see if I can go another 30 days without eating solid food. I think the key is going to be finding a few other things I can safely consume in blended or pureed form. A few days back I tried a blender prepared rice pudding thing but it didn’t quite work. I think rice will need to stay off the menu. I also tried a blended tapioca pudding but I’m not sure if that works either. Will have to try it again before I decide.

I’m planning on treating myself with quinoa pudding for lunch today. I found a few recipes so I’m going to be trying one. Unfortunately I only have a box of red quinoa on hand. Hopefully red quinoa can work just as well as white. We shall see. I’m looking forward to it.

In the meantime I am busy working, trying to get back into the business woman frame of mind. The fibroids have not been much of a concern for me lately. I think the lady who wrote to me about the need to stop empowering my fibroids was exactly right in her assessment. I have in fact been focusing all this time on getting my life in balance in the hope that doing so would result in getting back control over my life from the fibroids. My focus needed and needs to be on getting my life in balance period. When I consider all the possibilities of worse things that I could be dealing with, I realize she was also right in pointing out that I need to be grateful each day that I wake up to find that my burden is still lighter than the burdens so many others are carrying. Tomorrow I might not be so fortunate.

Cut to later…

I started this post earlier today. I have since had my lunch of blended red Quinoa pudding. Actually it was more like a porridge.

Although it might not look terribly appetizing it tasted decent enough. It contains only red quinoa and coconut milk. I did add some sugar to sweeten. It was nothing to wow the senses but it was perfectly pleasant to consume. Now I feel full and shouldn’t have to worry about food for the rest of the day. Hopefully water and tea will keep me until tomorrow.

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.
