It’s been a long four days. Long. Four. Days. Not only was my manic alcoholic boss here from Toronto this entire week, I had wall to wall meetings, jet lag from traveling, and sugar, caffeine, and carb withdrawl. I was also surrounded by cookies, pizza, and M&M’s at all times.
I am certain I was a blast to be married to.
1. I made it through the week without strangling my boss and/or drinking with her (she is the definition of “misery loves company”).
2. I stuck to the diet–mostly by eating hourly and subsisting on water, fruit, salads, almonds, avocados, and fish. I did treat myself to lamb one night.Goal for next week is to eat more complex dishes that I make over the weekend and save as leftovers.
3. Caffeine withdrawl headache is finally abating.
4. My poop diary has been written 3 out of the 4 days! No constipation except on Day 1. Things are rocking, things are rolling. Movin’ and a groovin’. They have been mostly standard turds. I had one day of lighter/yellow-tinged poop which I contribute to A)too many B vitamins B) too many yams C) liver failure.
I haven’t said this in a while, but this weekend, I’m looking forward to COOKING! No more eating of whole avocados and bell peppers for sustenance. I must learn the ways of the eggless omelet and sugarless sugar cookies. I’m already strategizing on ways to make my favorite dishes gluten, dairy, egg, and sugar free. I think I will try my banana bread and pumpkin pie. I’m also planning on making lamb stew. Frickin love lamb!!!!
Anyone have any favorite recipes I can attempt to put an Elimination Diet spin on?
