I have to admit that I haven’t been feeling better. Not since seeing my new doctor, not since taking a bunch of new supplements and hormones (although, my mood has improved and my depression is gone!). In fact, last week I got so itchy all over that I couldn’t sleep. I had no idea what was causing it, so I stopped taking everything except my thyroid medication to see if I was having a reaction to something. It didn’t go away, so now I’m itchy AND I’m not taking my supplements.
I know I’m on the right track to getting healthy, but it’s hard staying positive and patient when I want to feel better RIGHT NOW.
I’ve been so fatigued all the time, I am moving at 1/4 speed. I really have to force myself not to get trapped in the same cycle of being too tired to prepare meals –> eating crap –> feeling worse because my diet is terrible –> return to step 1. I have been eating mostly carbs, carbs, carbs.
I need to get back on the right track. Tomorrow. Today I wanted to make a really easy comfort food, so I made hot apple cider.
- 1 Honeycrisp apple, cored
- Hot water
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Put the apples in first and blend until they’re a mushy goo. Add water to reach desired consistency. I used 1 cup; any more would have been too watery. Add cinnamon and blend for 3-4 minutes, or until it’s hot.
I don’t mind the pulp; in fact, I hardly noticed it BECAUSE THE VITAMIX IS SO AWESOME.
I vow to make things with more than 1 ingredient from now on. Maybe. Probably.
