HEADACHE. More stuff happened, good stuff. But the headache was the reason for no blogging.
Here’s what happened: Alarm went off way before I was ready to get up (boo). Not enough sleep (blerg). Coffee (yay!). Drive (meh). Meeting (good!). Tea (Yum!). Grocery shopping (Meh). Home (yay!). Breakfast (woo-hoo!).
But look how freaking cute she is.
The headache started off as a not-enough-sleep headache, more of a brain fog than a true headache. It reminded me a lot of how I used to feel almost all the time; lethargic, brain fog, achy neck, general blah. I don’t feel this way very often at all anymore. It sometimes happens when I get glutened. It also sometimes happens if I get woken up out of a deep sleep. It always makes me very grateful that I don’t feel like crap on a regular basis anymore.
But mostly I just want it to go away. This only happens if I’m able to lie down, which wasn’t the case yesterday. But along the way, I got to take in some nice views.
Not bad, eh?
Did it work? Did the pretty pictures distract you from the lack of food in my day?
Needless to say, I was starving when I got home. I ate the leftover pork stir-fry, cold. I’ve always loved Chinese food cold. I’m a weirdo.
For second dinner, Simon made omelets and bacon. I crashed at 9:00, and slept until 7:30. That helped.
What??? Day 17?
Sure is. Time for one last batch of coconut muffins. But this time: with sesame seeds. I wish I discovered this earlier in the detox, because I lurve them like this.
Toasted sesame seeds + Hawaiian black sea salt = Yes.
And then I went to the mall! Why? Because I have a tween to shop for, and it’s the sensible thing to do. I did a lot of picking things up, walking around with them, and putting them back down. “Wait a minute! This isn’t (?) cool. Or is it?…”
I feel like my lunch has been pretty much the same for days, and to be honest, it’s motivated slightly by the need to use up some mayonnaise before it goes bad.
I’m still seeing really good organic heirloom tomatoes, from California even. I anticipate losing interest in tomatoes altogether somewhat soon.
What kind of meat we buy on Sunday has everything to do with how busy my week is going to be. This week is on the busy side, so we got ground beef and pork, and that’s what’s left for tonight… I’m sick of Bolognese and of burgers. We’ve had both a gazillion times. What else? Meatloaf is better with some kind of sweet-ish glaze. Meatballs are good, but still along the lines of Bolognese.
Then Simon walked in and said “Brrrr! It’s chilly.”
No recipe for this yet, but here are the ingredients, if you want to guess the amounts! It’s chili, there’s wiggle room.
bell peppers (roasted and fresh)
