This week has been weird. In fact, today was weird. It perked up toward the end of the day but I guess I am not remembering a whole lot from the few days prior either. I think there are several reasons for this:
1. The Cleanse… or maybe a better word would be detox. Anyway, it’s messin’ with me, man! I’m hungry, plain and simple. After this is done, I have decided I am not going to give up carbs. I like them. I miss them. I want real noodles and I want some bread. I also want a burger but that’s a whole other story. I am glad I decided to do this before heading off to Vegas because I’m going to eat a lot. I’ve been hungry for days now and there are a few times where I feel a bit out of it. And my energy has seen better days. I haven’t been working out and I’m in bed around 10:30 pm every night. At least it’s been good for my sleeping habits! I chalk all of this up to not eating enough. So when this is over, I am going to continue watching my sugar intake because I think this has made me sluggish recently. But I will be making sure to get the right amount of calories for an active lifestyle.
2. VEGAS next week! I can’t wait! I am thrilled to be going on a mini-vaca and I am looking into a 5k in the area! I would be doing it with a twitter friend/runner! I think it would be super fun and I am ready to go there and enjoy the sights and sounds of that crazy place. I know I will be ready to come home too but it will be a few days before I reach that point. Oh yeah, it won’t be 25* there either.
3. I had an appointment with my neurologist this week. After my 4 day migraine last week, I figured it would be a good time to schedule something (clearly, I am very intelligent). It was a fabulous appointment! I am not kidding – she really listens to me and I brought her a whole list of questions. One of my goals for the year was to become more educated on my disease/condition (I’m not sure which one it is) and this helped. I have frontal lobe epilepsy. I’ve never known this before! We also decided to change up my medication. WHOA NELLY! To let you know how monumental this is, I haven’t changed my medication aside from dosage, in 16 years! After I get back from vaca I will start the process. It’s not going to be all bells and whistles, so my excitement is mingled with nerves. I’m sure I will write more about it. I do have this feeling of hope though, since my current meds have side effects that I will be happy to no longer have to deal with.
So there you go… tonight I am going to maul some chicken and tomatoes and after tomorrow, I will be finished. I will definitely “review” this whole detox thing but I am not doing the “miracle soup” on Saturday. I have to fly on Sunday and I am not sure what that will do to my tummy.
