Goodness! I think I can finally move to Stage 5 tomorrow. I made the nut bread tonight and had a couple slices and no adverse effects.
One of my readers asked why I was taking HCI. Well, in reading the books it says that GAPS people often have low stomach acid, and I also was reading in a book on asthma and allergies that low stomach acid can cause fatigue.
So I thought I would try the HCI.
I stopped taking it a couple of days ago, because I just got tired of having to worry about it.
I now wonder if it WAS causing some die off, because I was so depressed. But I was also on my monthly, so it could have been the hormones from that.
My son made cookies today. I abstained from eating any. Good for me. I did good. It wasn't too hard. They did smell delicious. He asked what kind of nuts should I put into them and I said walnuts [affiliate link].
Anyway, it is very late now and I have to get up very early in the morning. It has been a busy weekend, once again. On Saturday I tried something new with the computer. I set a timer for 30 minutes and had to leave the computer every half hour to work in the kitchen. I managed to spend three hours on the kitchen and it wasn't even THAT bad. Just every counter was cluttered with stuff, and there were a couple loads of dishes sitting around the counters. The floor of course was a mess and the stove had to be wiped down. I even pulled out the stove though, and cleaned behind it and on the sides of it.
That means I had some energy on Saturday.
I need to start tagging these “energy” days as they seem to be showing up a little more frequently. Although I'm still waiting for that superhuman burst of energy that's going to be with me every waking moment for the rest of my life as long as I stay on GAPS.
One of my sisters told me over the weekend that she is getting stiff. I wish I could have told her about GAPS. I think I have mentioned it to her before, but she was not receptive. Or maybe my mom mentioned it to her. Anyway, I am going to bide my time and wait it out to say much to anyone. The proof will be in the pudding, as they say. Mmmm, pudding sounds good. There is some cashew pudding I'd love to try.
Oh… my hubby bought me some raw almond butter [affiliate link] and I am making him take it back to the store. It was an 18 ounce jar on sale for $9.99!! I cannot almond butter at that price! No way.
So tomorrow I should be embarking on Stage 5.
Good night my friends.
