That seems like a lot. Fifteen weeks…

This past week has gone fairly well. My elbow is still swollen, not terribly, and not painfully, but it won’t calm down completely. I haven’t decided what to do about that yet. A shot might help, but I really don’t want to. I did a lot of eating out, eating salads and such lately. Little too much bad stuff in my food, bread or rice noodles. I finally got groceries this weekend, lots of veggies and almonds. Still need to find reasonably priced almond butter. OMG that stuff is delicious. Regaining focus, though I’ve a zag day coming up this weekend. Schedule changes coming up. I’m trying to decide if I should how to set up regular exercise around a possibly newly regulated schedule. Come home at noon most days, if the pattern holds, exercise then eat lunch(or is it supposed to be the other way around?).  Then do my other jobs. It could work.

Food of the week: Almond butter on sprouted grain tortilla.

Dragon*Con. Most of this last week was taken up by being in Atlanta, Georgia at Dragon*Con. I had a spectacular time, attending eleven writing panels, getting Peter David and Alan Dean Foster to autograph books, listening to Tom Smith, going to parties… and yes, eating Alkaline. I took with me: almonds, romaine lettuce, snow peas, sesame basil crackers, barely ripe bananas and granny smith apples. For dinners I mostly at at a Japanese food court place that had a Delicious Soba Noodle Salad. Here and there, I had regular salads(Subway and Metro Diner). I was back on my full course(sans Enbrel) of drugs(Prednisone, Plaquenil, Arava, Naproxen) to get things back under control. I came home from the con feeling far better than when I had left, flares all gone and even my pesky cough has dissipated.

So I just posted about my flare over the weekend. It’s calmed down quite a bit now, but there’s still a little extra fluid there. Another day or two and it should be back to normal. Other than that, cravings and stress driving me a little bonkers, but I am recommitting myself to doing this, and getting healthy. All else, this week went fairly well, health and foodwise. I still haven’t started exercising, but, that may be coming, as I’ll be down to part-time soon, and might even have a normalized schedule of sorts.

I’m heading to Dragon Con in less than 24 hours. With me will be going almonds, organic sesame crackers, granny smith apples, bananas, sprouted grain tortillas, romaine lettuce, snow peas, celery, tuna (and miracle whip). I will be seeking out salads when I eat out, and will be drinking only water.

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.
