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:
Snack while driving home 3pm
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.
