I worked on Friday so I don't have to work today. Sometimes I work from home on Mondays, sometimes I have to go in.
I am however, still working. I am behind on our finances again, and the only bill for the month that has been paid is the mortgage. There are a few others that need to be paid. I also forgot to take a draw from my husband's business account so he is going to stop by his bank today and withdraw the cash and deposit it into our personal account so that I can actually pay the bills that are due.
I'm trying again today to see if I can avoid the off limit foods.
I have already thrown away two dark chocolate candy things so they won't be a temptation.
I found this Laughing Giraffe Organics Pineapple Macadamia Coconut Cacao Gluten Free Granola in the cupboard (which my son brought home a few months ago). It's something that was donated to my job that no one wants to eat. It tastes kind of stale… which probably means I shouldn't eat it, but it's gluten free! Plus, it was FREE. Look at the cost for this stuff! $9.00 for eight ounces. Egads.
I'm not really a big granola eater… but linked through to this recipe this morning: Gluten Free and Grain Free “Raw” Granola over Elana's Pantry. I would also like to have her book: The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.
I had a handful of cashews for breakfast, and leftover chicken soup (cabbage, red bell peppers, onions, celery, broth, no chicken).
I'm making another batch of chicken stock/broth, since my previous batch only rendered 8 cups for our freezer stock.
Had a talk with ds1 this morning. He overheard me talking to ds2, saying that we don't need cheese in our Chef Salad tonight. Dh is already started to avoid bread and all dairy products. Anyway, ds1 heard me and got upset and angry about it. I told him we are going to start eating differently so hopefully he can stop having so much phlegm in his throat. He was all wide eyed and angry. Finally I told him it's only for a few months (he doesn't really understand how long a month is though), and he settled down and got happy about that.
Pretty much with him, cheese is cheese. If swiss becomes okay to eat, he'll be happy with that.
Will report back later. (Hopefully)
11:45. Had an egg yolk from a boiled egg (hate egg white)
12:30 Ate another handful of the granola. Actually feel kind of bloated right now.
1:48. Definitely feeling more energy today. Not sure if that's from all the sleep over the weekend, or trying to avoid certain foods.
Here is a link to the GAPS site for the recommended foods.
6:15pm. We had Chef's salad for dinner. But I wasn't hungry, and still feel full/bloated. But I need to go to bed soon. If I go to bed hungry, I will wake up in the middle of the night starving and have to get up and eat (disturb my sleep). I may end up having a small salad.
Tomorrow I go to work. I need to figure out what to bring with me so I will have food at work. Fun, fun.
