I woke on Day 2 and thought I’d have a headache.  To my surprise, not so much.  This was good…perhaps I’d skip the whole hangover thing.

Impressions:

I don’t think I’ve ever eaten such good food. Also really filling food. After breakfast, I wasn’t really hungry for lunch until close to 2pm. Normally I’m pretty famished by that time and reaching for a piece of cheese or bread.  Instead, I made it to lunch and dinner without feeling light headed or really hungry.

As I mentioned in the beginning, I woke up feeling pretty good.  But by around 4pm, I felt pretty shitty and took two tylenol. My head was achy, but not pounding thankfully.  The Tylenol helped a little, but it didn’t really get rid of the dull pain. So at 6:00, I had to get out of the house and we went to the store to purchase some spices, and coconut oil and nuts…while totally looking at all the things we couldn’t have and being in complete amazement over how practically EVERYTHING has added sugar and soy.  Pickles, roasted red peppers, those little spice packets that you just add water/vinegar/oil to for a “homemade” dressing, dijon mustard, SALSA!

So we picked up some canning/mason jars and I’m going to try to make my own pickles, and salsa (for Sean since I don’t eat tomatoes) and roasted red peppers as well as a few other things.  At this point I’m rocketing between sadness and anger over what is in our everyday food, that people just mindlessly eat (ourselves included).

After dinner I was so full that I didn’t crave anything sweet. We are still eating pretty late, so I’d like to make a conscious effort to have dinner done by 8pm, which I realize is still pretty late for some people, but last night we ate closer to 10pm.

I slept well last night, only getting up once. No really weird dreams that I can recall.  I also feel like I’m sweating less and, dare I say it, my psoriasis is less red. That could be all in my head though. Sean didn’t sleep well last night. I think his hangover is coming today. I’m glad that I’ll be out of the house for most of the day.  🙂
