I don't know why I don't make it a habit to create menus for myself. The toughest thing is when I open the fridge and see all this fresh produce, but have no idea what I can eat right then. I'm soooo looking forward to the time when I see solitary fruits and veggies and see them as a meal. For now, though, because my mind is convinced things have to be "prepared" in order to have a meal, I should make sure I'm creating menus.

FEELING:

I'm still feeling a bit tired, but I have a little more energy today. I feel like maybe I'm eating too much when I eat, and perhaps that's what's keeping me tired (body working hard to digests things, especially all the cooked food I've been eating lately). My shoulder is hurting even less today (yay!), so that's always a nice thing. My eyes are still the most tired part of my body these days, though. I'm thinking it's because of me going off wheat. I've noticed the shape, or something, of my eyes is changing a bit. It's hard to explain, and I'm not just talking about puffy eyelids being around less often. It's almost like there used to always be pressure around my eyes (around and behind) and now it's not there. My vision has been worse since I've gone off the wheat, too, so it could be that my eyes need to adjust to less pressure? I have no idea.

My eyelashes are less straight now, too! Did I mention that as one of the things I was hoping to change when I listed all of my "ailments" a long time ago? Well, if I didn't, it's something that has always bugged me. My eyelashes used to be long, healthy, and flipped up like they do on kids. I read years ago that straight eyelashes that don't flip up are a sign of ill health. That's when I noticed how straight they were and I started using a curling/crimper thing from time to time. I still use that, but now sometimes I look at them and think that they might not need the crimper thing much longer! Wouldn't that be amazing !

I'm getting more and more gray hair. I'm looking forward to meeting with my doctor to discuss results from the SEVEN vials of blood they took out of me. I wouldn't doubt if I'm low in B12 *and* iron, which would explain the gray hair and tiredness. I really think that Metformin medicine I was on for the insulin resistance/PCOS is what caused all of the B12 and iron problems. :-/ It was worth taking it, though, to realize that my menstrual problems really have been coming from an insulin resistance problem since I was about thirteen years old.

LEARNING:

I don't feel like reading about raw foods today, so I'm not going to do it. I'm focusing on a virtual world that I'm part of and also trying to get myself pscyhed for the next NaNoWriMo that's coming up very soon!

==========

EATING:

* Shredded apples with walnuts, agave, cinnamon, salt

* Juice of celery, carrots, apple, beets

* 1/2 cup of some dried spicy Indian snack (not organic, or raw)

* "Pasta" with "marinara"

* "candy"

NaNoWriMo!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never been able to complete it. I HAVE TO edit as I go. I just can't do stream of consciousness writing for that long.

Good Luck!

Thanks! I had a hard time getting over the *no time to edit* part of it all. I just wrote and wrote and wrote. I hope I can succeed in doing the same thing this year. Thanks!

Are you going to try again this year? If so, I'll add you to my friends list and cheer you on!

Nooo, I'm so not up for it this year. I'm actually working on writing something and I don't have much time for that as it is.
