Today was a great day until I went to leave my clients house, took a wrong turn, and ended up on a random freeway. I have severe anxiety about driving on the freeway and I totally had a full-blown panic attack! Suck city 😦 I am home safe and well fed now- I am a happy panda now.
I had great energy today, good mood, but still a bit foggy. I know that part of the fogginess I feel is from the thyroid meds but I am hoping this experiment helps.
I grazed today on baby carrots and cherry tomatoes. On the way home I stopped at the grocery store and picked up some provisions for the next few days. I got some wild caught salmon and baked it with lemon, pepper, and kosher salt- fabulous! On the side I sautéed some cauliflower and brussels sprouts in ghee, lemon zest, lemon juice, coconut oil, salt, and pepper. My boyfriend actually ate it all! Never in my life did I think this would happen. I asked him if he is still planning on continuing to eat paleo. His response “well, I either eat 100% junk food or I eat 100% paleo. There’s no in-between because that’s when I feel like shit.” What an interesting response. I don’t want to push him to eat paleo. It needs to be his own choice. I did tell him, however, that I would be making dinners pale style so if he doesn’t want to eat this way he will have to figure it out on his own. I hope he continues but we shall see.
I ate some baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, watermelon chunks, a couple dried turkish apricots, and my salmon dinner today. I am satisfied with what I ate and how I feel 🙂 Bonus! I haven’t felt like I have been missing out on anything really, so, that’s good news. We did decide to go on a date on the 22nd, I have a luncheon on the 23rd, and then Christmas on the 25th. I think these are the 3 days I will allow myself to eat non-paleo. It will be interesting to see how I feel before, during, and after these 3 days. I will keep you posted.
Energy- good, parts of the day great
Mental clarity- foggy here and there but overall pretty good
Overall, other than the shit on the freeway today was a great day. I am so pleased with myself that I have been staying paleo even when I am stressed, hungry, and at the grocery store! Now that is willpower.
As always- FUCK YOU CANCER!!! God gets me through the toughest times, I am so thankful for this and for His Grace.
