DH has oral surgery today. FIL took him, so I can still take my pain meds and be able to tolerate the pain. It doesn't get rid of the pain, the pain is still very much there, it just makes it where I can tolerate it. Back to DH, the Air Force dentist are the reason he is terrified of dentists and must be put under to have dental work done. I won't tell the story, it will make your teeth hurt just to read it.
I had a huge breakfast. Huge. I don't think I'm going to need to eat for the rest of the day. Eggs, sausage and toast. This for a person who doesn't normally eat breakfast. I need to slow down on the food and eat more bland foods and slowly introduce heavier foods so I can see which foods go right through me. One did yesterday. Made my body go "We're flushing now! Get it out!" and boy did it. People weren't kidding when they told me some foods would do that. Wow. I'm taking the probiotics like Aunt C suggested and it seems to be working, I've done pretty good with eating food.
Back to my work on cravings. I was craving eggs for breakfast, so I made this whole huge breakfast. I'm nauseated now and I think it is because I ate too much. Why do I let my cravings lead me around like a horse and cart? I need to be the driver, not my cravings! But most of the time I don't even think about it. I crave, I eat. That simple. Must eat more mindfully and not like a starving wild animal. How do I do that? How do I stop and remember to think before I eat? I'm going to start by telling my kids, yes my kids. And promise them I won't get aggravated at them. When I went on a pescetarian diet they watched me like a hawk and reminded me all of the time. I think they will be great little reminders. Now if I can remember to not get aggravated at them!
