Happy hump day! I wanted to post today but realized I have nothing to talk about. I figured I’d tell everyone what I’ve been up to so you can all see how lame I am. Sunday, I went to IKEA. If you’ve ever been to IKEA, you know that it is a maze of all the furniture you can imagine, and if you’ve ever been to IKEA on the weekend, you know that it is an panic attack waiting to happen. IKEA is insane, everyone who goes there on the weekend is some sort of masochist, and the only thing I left with that day were cold sweats and some Swedish meatballs.
Other than this, I have been going to bed extra early this week. I have not quite adjusted to the time change from daylight savings. Monday and Tuesday I was in bed by 9. Last night, I tried to stay up to watch the election polls come in but was out cold by 9:02. I blame my dog, Boca, for forcing me to snuggle with her.
With my recent downward spiral of stomach issues, I decided that I am going to (slowly) get away from the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. Don’t stop reading my recipes! I believe it’s a really good diet, and am still following it for the most part, but it wasn’t quite working for me. I was still feeling sick and the weight loss was causing me to resemble a 12 year old boy. My mother kindly told me that I looked like “one of those Ethiopian kids from the commercials.” Thanks, ma. Luckily, I haven’t been out in months, so I can’t confirm or deny if men these days are attracted to that sort of look. TBD.
My diet is starting to shift more towards Paleo/Gluten-free. Basically, I have successfully added sweet potatoes, dark chocolate, and some rice cereal. The adding of dark chocolate is amazing, rice cereal is for babies but it has a lot of iron which I definitely need. Who knows what I’ll add next!!!
The last thing is that November is my birthday month. I am technically going to be 26, but I think I should actually be turning 24. My logic behind this is that I spent the last year sick, eating soft baby food, and staying at my parents house on and off… so I actually regressed a year (if not more).
Last year on my birthday, I went out to dinner with my family and some friends at Stephanie’s on Newbury.
