I woke up a couple of times during the night but was able to get right back to sleep. Felt good this morning and have been feeling happy the last few days. I’m not sure if it’s because my GI tract is getting less inflamed or it’s from practicing not getting stressed out or a combo of both. I’m gonna keep doing what I’m doing.
Had a good amount of energy this morning and almost felt like my old self. Around 12:30 I started to feel the cotton come into my head again. I get brain foggy and sleepy. I’m able to hide it because I have to for work but I could totally take a nap. I wonder if it’s because my body is spending energy digesting my food. I would think that since I’m eating less my energy might be better but my cortisol levels are probably not near where they need to be. My adrenals are healing but they take a lot of time to get fully healed.
I had a liver ultrasound this afternoon. The tech was a super chatty but nice. She said she saw a spot that looked like air in my liver. What??? She googled it and said it could be nothing or something but doctor had to interpret. Yea, like I was gonna wait 2 days for the report. I consulted doctor Google and found some crazy stuff about what it could be. After a half hour of diagnosing myself I decided to wait the 2 days and see what the experts had to say.
I got a headache after doing Pilates that I thought may be because I was hungry. Ate some jello but it didn’t go away. I just had to close my eyes for 15 minutes. Still had a dull ache which eventually went away about a half hour after dinner. I’m not eating enough fat just because those foods aren’t on the reintroduction schedule yet which may be messing with my blood sugar regulation.
Tomorrow is a new food day! I want to add more veggies but pureed zucchini isn’t really rocking my world. Applesauce sounds so much better but adding more fruit without enough fat in my diet may make the blood sugar issue worse. I’ll decide in the morning but probably will go with the zucchini.
I’m happy that I’m now into my third week of this journey. If you’re debating getting started just do it. Getting thru the intro diet is the hardest part. You get used to it though, especially if you were in a lot of pain before and now don’t have that level of pain. I’ve been tempted to eat things off the plan but think about how that would hurt my system and know it’s not worth it.
