I am very tired this evening. This is because I went to bed at 9pm last night, which is late for having to get up at 4am. That wouldn't have been so bad, except I woke up at 1:30am and couldn't get back to sleep.
I finally got out of bed at 4:15am in a very foul mood. I snapped at my husband complaining about the television being on all night long. I know that sleep patterns are disturbed when you don't sleep in the dark. I even cried this morning as I took my shower, getting ready for work.
It reminded me that I used to be in a sorry mood much of the time, prior to starting GAPS. I used to mutter to myself, “I hate my life, I hate my life.”
I haven't been feeling that way, which I take as improvement and success.
Another thing is before GAPS when I didn't get enough sleep, I would have had to drink four ounces of coffee [affiliate link] (more than four ounces would make me shaky). On GAPS, I am tired, but I can tolerate the tiredness.
Also, yesterday I worked on closing the previous month's books and I was able to think clearly about what I was doing whereas in past months I have felt befuddled. It could just be that I am finally learning what I'm supposed to be doing, but it seems like the brain fog has lifted significantly.
Let's see, I had my broth this morning. I left two cups heating and reduced it down to one cup accidentally. Thankfully it doesn't seem like I am sensitive to freed glutamates from broth. I brought leftovers with me for lunch; half of a grilled chicken breast, about 20 pieces of asparagus, an avocado, leftover salad, about 15 grapes and about 20 almonds [affiliate link].
Hubby baked a chicken so I ate off of that when I got home. The skin had cooked until it was crispy, so I ate about a six inch square of that. I thought that was all I wanted for dinner, but now it seems like I'm feeling hungry again. But now I'm hungry for some vegetables. Except I was planning to take my detox bath which I missed last night. And I need to get to bed early tonight so I can have a successful day tomorrow.
Tomorrow is Day 60.
I forgot to mention on Saturday I decided to have a little bit of honey [affiliate link] on my pancakes. I mixed about 1/4 cup of butter with about a tablespoon of honey and dipped my pancake in that. Ohhhhh… nectar of the Gods. Sooooo delicious. So divine. I don't quite remember loving honey quite so much.
All right I had better get off this computer.
