Wow, twelve weeks. And I’m feeling great. Still no drugs taken, still haven’t called my doctor. Still struggling with cravings. But, I got to have my Zag day for our Fifth Anniversary. Went to TGIFriday’s and had potstickers and Sesame Jack Chicken Strips and delicious lemonade. Had some chocolate covered cookie dough at the theater, but it wasn’t as wonderful as I’d hoped. Had beef and noodle stir fry at Benihana for lunch, and Papa Murphy’s pizza for dinner. It was a good zag day and it didn’t even hurt that much. Had a good weekend with family, ate well with my Aunt and Uncle and at my brother’s place. Avoided the junk food and had a good time.

Food of the week: The broccoli and sesame seed salad base Mom made.

I’ve stopped taking my drugs. Not intentionally, I’ve just been lazy. I think I last took some on Saturday, maybe Friday. I’ve little aches here and there, but some movement and stretching generally makes them feel better. I really need to make the time to exercise, and I keep saying this, but it’s true. Yoga, Tai Chi, Strength Training, something, probably all of the above. Food’s been going alright, though I’ve had mad cravings for chocolate lately. And, I admit, have indulged a few times. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet, but I’ve lost quite a bit of weight, I’m down to 125 last check. That’s 20 pounds in the last three months. Was not my intention, and I’d really rather gain some of that back, in muscle preferably(see the need to exercise). Other than that, things are really going quite well.

Food of the Week: Red Potatoes and Broccoli, dressed with Olive Oil, Rosemary, Basil and Garlic Salt.

It has been a good week. Still no need for a shot, forgot my meds a couple times with no ill effects. I’m doing well and enjoying life. I was sick on Sunday, but that was either bad Salmon or stress, or too much melon, or all of the above. Who knows? I need to do better about buying produce in appropriate amounts, and then using it in a timely fashion. I only ate half the bananas before they turned disturbingly brown and I have far too much Romaine lettuce in the fridge. Also, I think I have a cucumber that has gone all soft and some tomatoes that I left too long. Time to clean out the fridge and try again. I’ve been craving peanut butter sandwiches lately. The banana/tahini/flat bread was good, but just not the same, might look into almond butter. Speaking of, need to buy almonds today, too. Found lots of yeast free bread at Raisin Rack this week, too. Men’s Bread(lots of extra seeds and some random nutrient they said men need) and Spelt.

Food of the Week: Men’s Bread

As previous comments mention, I have now gone over three weeks without a shot. I’m feeling quite good, and should really call my doctor to see when I can get in to talk to her about my blood tests. Retail schedule making that even more difficult a problem. The apples and bananas have gone over well. Giving me a little break from simply veggies. Slicing up the bananas on whole grain flat bread with tahini over them makes an excellent, if not very alkaline snack. I need to get more yeast-free alkaline grain bread in the morning if Raisin Rack has some. Got frozen veggies, too, but have eaten them all already. The smaller cuts make prep easier, if not fresh and raw. Things are going quite well and I’m finding myself having a much happier week. Parties are still painful, with all the lovely acid lying around, but I resisted this weekend. Time to start planning Anniversary Zagging. 😉

Food of the week: Flatbread wrapped bananas and tahini
