At least, that's going to be my story after today. I believe that dairy and grains, in the form that we have them today, are likely causing a lot of our health issues. But I'm hungry, so I don't really care anymore. I decided to start cutting out the grains today, and I was all excited and proud of myself until about 2:30 this afternoon. Then I was shaking every little crumb I could get out of what little was left of my last box of cereal. Because I'm hungry. I tried to prepare for this. I made sure that I had plenty for my meals. I made sure that I had appropriate snacks to eat.
It didn't work. The reason that I ate the cereal is because it is the one grain that was left in the house (besides some rice, but I didn't want to work that hard for something that wouldn't be tasty unless I fixed it up). I should be picking up the house right now so that I can think about being ready for the coming week. But I am far too hungry to bother myself with mundane things like doing dishes! I'm thinking about going to the store to try to find something. I'm sure that I would also have to pick up some chocolate for myself for the trouble.
Seriously! I know that some of you have done paleo or similar types of eating plans. What the heck do you eat so that you don't go crazy?? I'm really glad that I decided this should be done in stages. Tomorrow's stage is definitely going to have to have some more carbs!
Besides whining about being hungry, I think I'm getting over whatever little bug I had. It was a weird one. I'd have a headache, and I was really tired. So I'd lie down. And I'd be happy as a clam until I was bored of the couch. Then I'd think I was doing better and I'd get up and quickly just want bed again. It was pretty exciting to go to church today, come home and cook an (perfect!) omelet and then still feel like doing more stuff.
But lying on the couch left me plenty of time for some TV. I am into the 3rd season of Downton, but not caught up yet. The nice thing about the DVD's is that I have access to the special features, and the one I listened to today was talking about the whole thing with Pamuk. Guess what. They didn't make that up! Apparently one of the writers read that in someone's old diary from approximately that era! Beyond that, I'm not sure if I can keep watching. Except for Edith and Bates, everyone's pretty happy right now. I have seen enough spoilers to know what's coming. I don't know when or how, but I know it's on the way. I'm glad I know in a way, because I can't handle those kinds of surprises on shows. On the other hand, I wish I could have ignorance and not be waiting for that.
Seriously. I've been eating all day. How am I still hungry??? Grrr.... I'm going to go find more food now. Somewhere.
