So, I’m on day two and thus far, I seem to be doing well.
I purchased this really cool water bottle that allows me to unscrew the lid to add ice, but still drink it from the lid like a regular water bottle.
It’s pretty cool! SEEITHERE!
This has helped me consistently drink water all day — that is — until I left it in my Film Lit class this afternoon. Hoping someone set it aside for me :/
No headaches, probably because I continue to drink my coffee.
My meals today were pretty consistent with Autoimmune Paleo, minus the coffee and cocoa rule.
Here’s what I’ve had today thus far:
Breakfast: Shake made of Almond Milk, unsweetened cocoa, vanilla, ice and 1/2 banana. (Only drank 3/4 of it. Also, made the night before and froze.)
Snack: Kale chips (made of kale and sea salt)
Lunch: Salad (I made it last night. Consisted of mixed greens, carrots, cauliflower in a mason jar). Also ate with 2tbsp of all-natural pear vinaigrette dressing (no additives, corn syrup or gluten)
Snack: The other 1/4 of my shake.
I’ve been trying to drink water in between meals and also had a cup of hot green tea with raw sugar.
Haven’t really craved a Dr. Pepper yet. The hardest part is the afternoon slump. Basically my main complaint is still
My plan for dinner is all-natural/organic homemade chicken and long-grain-wild rice soup. Technically rice is considered a food to avoid, but I’m using organic and will use half of what the recipe calls for.
My joints are still swollen, specifically my left wrist. But it’s way less than it was and manageable. Grant it, I’m back on all my meds.
I’ll keep you guys posted. Until then,
