I took a break from writing…actually, I have still been writing but just not posting it publicly. It was so hard to come up with a topic every night and to fill this page with something that I thought someone might give a hoot about. I’ve said from the beginning that this blog was for me and I really didn’t have the intention of being a big time blogger with thousands of subscribers. But it was always in the back of my mind that someone might be reading it and thinking to themselves how boring it is. I talk about how bad I feel or how tired I am and then I describe what I ate that day.
So, I decided to go dark. I’ve been writing for just me (when I did it). No worries about anybody or anything. It’s a paragraph or 2 and I’m done. The problem is, I did it a couple of times and then forgot and have missed a couple of days. I don’t want to drop it completely because I can go back and look at what I’ve eaten or maybe when I started complaining about a headache. I don’t know. Good reasons to keep doing it and lazy ones not to.
On another subject, I’ve been toying with the idea of switching to a ketogenic diet. The fatigue is not getting any better, at all! Plus the heartburn is killing me. So I googled it and I found the ketogenic diet could help with both. Actually, you get varying opinions, depending on who wrote the article. So I may just wait until I got to the doctor next Friday and ask her what she thinks. I lost 2.7 pounds this week so Paleo is working for me as far as weight loss but just not the fatigue and heartburn. Surely there is something out there that will work. I also think that maybe changing it up would help confuse my system.
Another 2.7 puts me at about 18.something down since January. Add that to the 10 I lost at the end of ’16 and that is almost 30 lbs since I’ve started going to my new doctor and trying to get healthy. I measured and no inches have been lost since the first of March.
Here’s my food for the day. Breakfast was bacon. I had boiled eggs but I couldn’t peel them for anything. I finally gave up. For lunch I had leftovers from Monday night bunko. It was roast, potatoes, carrots, and onions. I also had green beans and squash. For supper we went out to eat at Outback. I got the steak, a sweet potato and asparagus. I also had a kombucha and vodka. Kombucha is something I would have to give up if I go on the keto diet. One serving has like 7 grams of carbs!
I’ll be deciding whether to change diets. Until then…
