Yesterday I posted about being depressed and tired. Kellycat commented and said previous posts indicated that I'd come out the other side feeling a lot better and this time would probably be the same.

In spite of not feeling like I got enough sleep, I was not exhausted today and the feelings of depression had lifted. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

As I mentioned yesterday, I decided not to go visit my friend with the triplets.  I'd love to, but I think I had better take it easy this weekend.  The thing is, I know I'm going to end up staying and visiting for hours (if she'll have me) and I already told her I'd love to help her with the babies for the day, so I should do that on a day when I'm rested, not after a week of being tired and depressed.

For this weekend, I am going to make a point to take a nap every day, early in the day. If I nap too late in the day then I end up staying up way too late at night.

How about a food round up for the day?

Breakfast @ 4:30am – 1 – 1/2 cups of leftover chicken soup (vegetables and broth only, no meat)

Mid-morning snack @ 9am – medium avocado with sea salt [affiliate link]

Lunch @ 1pm Leftover roast beef, carrots, cauliflower, zucchini

Supper @ 5:30pm Chicken breast meatloaf, fauxtatoes, salad (iceberg lettuce, shredded carrots, sliced mushrooms, fresh tomatoes from the garden, sliced cucumbers, olive oil, raw apple cider vinegar, crushed garlic)

I noticed today that it seems I'm eating less and able to go longer without having to eat.

Perhaps it just depends on what I'm eating.  I seem to recall that I used to need to eat more often, a typical day was more like this:

Breakfast 5am

Snack 8am

Snack 10am

Lunch noon

Snack while driving home 3pm

Dinner 5:30pm

Sometimes something right before going to bed at 7 or 8pm, and then sometimes during the night.

Today I talked with a lady at my job that volunteers for us and we talked a little bit about GAPS. She asked me if I can ever eat “normal” food again.  I was telling her how GAPS is recommended for two years, but after not eating “normal” food for almost eight months now, I am finding that I really don't care about most of these so called “normal” foods.  She asked me to give her the name of the book again. I am thinking about loaning her my books for a week or two.

Here's to a restful weekend.

  • I find that I don’t need to eat as much either. In the beginning with GAPS, I was ravenous all the time but I think it was the cravings kicking in.

    Hi Sarah: I love that I’m eating less. I love that my stomach doesn’t get so full and bloated so that it hurts. Fiber Menace says we are so hungry at first because we’re going to a low fiber diet and our stomachs were accustomed to more bulk. I used to try to stop when I felt satisfied and then pretty soon my stomach would feel miserably full. Now I think what was happening is the fiber was bloating up in my stomach after I ate it and making me fuller. I wondered at first if it was because we were finally getting nutritious food that really had nutritional value, not just fake vitamins, etc. Or if you had yeast problems then I definitely think cravings would happen. I still can’t believe I don’t seem to have a yeast issue. Weird. Thanks for your comment!
