Dating seems like an absolute nightmare to me & ghosting is just so, so rude. *hugs*

I have a friend coming over for dinner...I'm hoping I do not overeat.
It was so last minute that I need to pick up a few things...healthy stuff like fruit.

I'm hoping I can get to 109lbs tomorrow...because I am on the border....

Ok today was the first day I went without coffee - I am exhausted. It was a struggle.
I did not eat well either...as in I relied on carbs for that energy spike...I'll eventually get off those too.

But I am going to squeeze in 6km of exercise.

I got my GI MAP results back and they were atrocious.

My gut bug is not only back but thanks to that it has led to a gut parasite and lots of inflammation. It was depressing yesterday b/c parasites are hard to get rid of. But now I know why my hair is still a mess.

That said...I know I slipped with a clean diet which has also led to the inflammation. I finished up packaged foods today/ chucked them. Not doing me any good anyways.

Naturopath gave me a 4-month healing protocol and I will need to go on a paleo diet b/c parasites feed on sugar and carbs.

I am struggling with the emotional eating though. Not sure how I can break that - the isolation and depression hits me during work. I work remotely...I will need some kind of workaround.

Okay so I've made it through most of the work day without coffee. It has been a win. I had decaf though and will eventually get off that as well. I'm trying to heal my throat so that I can get rid of the gut bug and restore my HCL levels. That is priority #1.

1) Heal throat & inflammation
2) Kick gut-bug with all I've got

This will take about a month and from there I can introduce HCL to restore my stomach acid.

Had tacos over the weekend with a friend and gained some weight back. Also couldn't get to doing enough exercise but back on track today. Need to plan out meals for the week.

Do you like fermented foods, Misty? I just fell down a rabbit hole looking up stomach bugs & healing gut issues, but found this article really interesting, especially towards the end. https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/blog/click-here-happiness/201906/heal-the-gut-17-gut-healing-strategies-start-today
TY! Yes I have been devouring info too. I eat a pretty bland and mono type of diet. Which is good! But I don't do enough for my stomach acid. I fell off the bandwagon and now need to 2X my celery juice - which tastes gross but will help me tremendously.

I love celery luckily. Why is eating a pretty bland & mono type of diet good? I can't imagine that. Do you mean it's good for beating bugs?

Yes! It's good for inflammation - sorry when I meant that I mean not like an overly spicy or heavy sort of diet.

I'm not sure what I weight today, I have been cleaning up the diet slowly. I am on and off coffee right now but just got herbal coffee replacements in the mail, which I am excited for.

My health picture according to my naturopath is a wreck but also she said there is so much to work on that it will be good when I start healing, I will see progress. I hope so.

I need to change my shower head, which is tricky in a rental. Need a wrench.

I had a few days of really deep depression (all hormonal) and today I feel okay, thankfully.

I'm glad you're feeling OK now. Hormones are a pain. I really hope that this time your gut can heal & you can start to get your system back in whack.

It has been a WHILE.

I've just been dealing with health and emotions but back on! I feel that is neverending journey anyways.

I want to get down to my summer weight at min 107lbs, it's warming up here and I am more conscious about going outdoors.
Very conscious of my hair but I am working through that too. I am on a parasite gut protocol and am debating going to see a GI specialist. I definitely have absorption issues but I do not know for sure what is causing them =( but I do notice a slight difference with gut work and my energy and hair. I am nowhere near healed but am leaning in this direction.

Re: boys, ugh, had someone tell me they are not ready for a relationship earlier this week so am opening myself up to dating again, but very slowly as I am burnt out & still have feelings for this person and need to sort myself out emotionally, and I am at this point in my life OK to not have kids - I am closing in on 38 this year and am just accepting it may not be in the cards for me, which takes some pressure off. I would like to have a relationship, however.

Hi, Misty. It's good to hear that your health might be heading in the right direction at last. I'm sorry about the guy you have been dating & I really hope you find someone who is in the same space as you at the right time. Not putting pressure on yourself about having children would take away a lot of stress. It's nice to have you back, hon xoxo

I'm really good, but very tired after a whirlwind visit from our younger son & his puppy who has just been de-sexed. The same day as his op I had my 2nd cataract op done. It was successful, but having a few quiet days afterwards would have been preferable. Oh, well. I could have a nap right now & may just do that :)
