Got up early this morning on a holiday (not a real holiday, just a paid one) to go to work to finish a report for whoever needs to read a report over the holidays. I got back home about and an hour and a half after I left, but then I couldn’t go back to sleep so I’m sitting here writing about how I feel. I feel tired and I feel hungry and I wonder if the grogginess was actually ever cause by the muscle relaxers because it’s day 5 off of them and I feel awful. However, the side effects from quitting the Prozac are great. I feel better and more creative than I have in a long time. Now if only I wasn’t too tired to do something with it.
We went Christmas shopping today and bought some of that expensive “bread” (it’s not bread, it’s bird seed). We watched “Gnomeo and Juliet” tonight, because Amira loves it “soooooooo much” (someone needs to teach that kid about spoiler alerts [I guess that’s my job]). For the most part it was a pretty decent day and I didn’t feel too awful.
It’s weird how sometimes I’ll just stop feeling hungry at all even though I haven’t eaten anything in hours. It’s almost like my body just gave up on even trying to tell me that I should eat. That part’s pretty cool though, It’s the other times when I feel like I’m going to pass out if I don’t eat something that really suck. I’m not in a really writery mood right now (do you know how hard it was to get Word to let me write the word “writery”? [Don’t tell me how to spell, Microsoft])
P.S. here’s what I ate on day 12:
Breakfast: quinoa w/ eggs, tomatoes, broccoli, EVOO, & sea salt
Lunch: gluten & yeast free rice flour w/ millet, flax seed and various other non-bread items “bread” w/ kefir cheese spread, tomatoes, shredded chicken & sea salt
2 oz. raw pecans & almonds
Raw celery w/ kefir cheese spread & sea salt
Plain organic yogurt w/ stevia and raw blueberries
Dinner: hamburger patties w/ sugar free spaghetti sauce, mozzarella cheese, black olive, & cooked broccoli w/ EVOO (added after the broccoli was cooked so as not to destroy the structure of the oil)
P.P.S. I know that looks like a lot of food, but for me it really isn’t and it also mostly doesn’t get rid of the cravings for a pizza or ice cream or… (I should just stop there and think about something else)
