I – am – on – VACATION!

Guess I looked pretty pitiful when I went to my boss and asked for my vacation to be moved up a day. She agreed so here I am!

It was a little after 10 when I got to bed. I wasn’t asleep at 10:30 so I got up and did a few things I’d been thinking about not wanting to forget. I e-mailed my daughter about going ahead and getting some bananas. When I went back to bed, I was able to go to sleep.

I overslept. I only had time to BodyFlex.

100% Raw Food

2 of my remaining grapefruit were bad. I had
17 ozzies grapefuit/OJ (it was good)
30 ozzies banana/green leaf/red leaf smoothie
24 ozzies banana/green leaf/red leaf/romaine smoothie
3 cups mango
A little over a quart salsa with half an avocado
Kim chee

I’d counted my pills and determined I have enough to do me until I get back but not until I go back to work. I went to see my FNP this afternoon. I was supposed to be there at 1 and worked straight through. I was horrified when I looked at the clock and it was after 2. I called and they worked me in. She gave me a clean bill of health. Said my breath sounds are better in one lung than the other but I don’t think that indicates anything amiss. My carotids are “clear as a bell”. My blood pressure was 104/58. My heart was pumping away like it’s supposed to. She didn’t order any blood tests which was fine with me. She questioned why I had a TSH in December and then a month later and I reminded her that was when I was cutting my pills in half. She cautioned me not to do that any more. I’ll behave but I can still hope and pray I can eventually get off the TRT.

I cleaned off my desk, gave it a “lick and a promise” and cleared out. I was the bank/mail person today which let me out a half hour early.

Lots of people wished me a good vacation and a safe trip. I’ll try everything I can to live up to both.

I finished cleaning out the fridge tonight. When I get back, I’ll go shopping at the organic market and fill it up. It surely does look nice. I haven’t put the drawers back in. They are empty and air-drying.

For some reason, I had the timer set to record on ABC tonight. I don’t remember what might have been on that I would have been recording on a weekly basis. That was the only way I happened to catch some of “Wife Swap” here and there. It was the raw family vs the urban family and it was about the most extreme one I’ve seen. I wouldn’t wish “Wife Swap” on anyone but I would hope they could find someone who eats raw fruit and veggies instead of people who eat raw meat and that every five hours??? The stomach needs to rest just like the rest of the body and that keeps it working all the time. My sister had told me about this particular show and said she trusted that none of the people on my forum would espouse such a thing. There have been a very few who either have eaten raw meat, raw eggs, or raw milk, but they are the exception and not the rule. The focus is 80/10/10 raw vegan and that has never changed. I don’t adhere to it all the time (I eat raw vegan but it isn’t always 80/10/10) but I’m trending that way.

It is getting later all the time and I need to find my way to the blissfulness of sleep. Good night!

    I am so happy for you. I started my journey long ago too. I wish you well and come visit me anytime.

    I used to pig out on kim chee when I first started. Over time, I cannot eat it anymore, so spicy and it’s well, rotten, so I get gassy. It’s been a long long time.

    For 2 years I am high fruit, only fruit most days. I feel the best. I did just give up avocados, in transition I needed them.

    I don’t really “pig out” on kim chee. I eat a few bites and am satisfied. What I have isn’t very spicy, either. My daughter is making some for me to try while I’m there.

    I tried to pull up your blog but it takes too much bandwidth for me on poor old dialup. I’ll have to try it again when I get to my vacation destination.

    It’s up to everyone what they feel the best on. I tend to crave greens if I eat fruit only for awhile. I think Dr. D. has the best answer for me.
