The scale said something like 146.8 or 146.6 this morning, so whatever disappeared over the weekend appears to be somewhat for real. Or coming back. I don't know.
Here's yesterday's eating:
- scrambled eggs
- tea with cream
- the usual (Monday) supplements, plus cucurmin for the shoulders
- beef jerky (boredom eating)
- taco salad with 1/2 pound grassfed beef
- three chocolate cherries
I did try something from Art Ayers site last night - put Ben-Gay on my shoulders with the expectation that it would actually reduce inflammation, not just feel good at the time. Supposedly, this actually happens. I will be repeating the process nightly for a week or so, to see if it helps. But maybe not right at bedtime - I was pretty pungent last night, and wearing a t-shirt is just asking for the furnace to light off.
The flashes are getting sparser and much shorter and less intense - I know I keep saying that, but I think I had 4 of them during daylight hours yesterday, and only one was lengthy enough to be really annoying. Not sure how the nighttime goes, because I'm (badly) sort of sleeping through them - which would argue towards kinder, gentler flashes as well (or I've got used to the damn things; hard to say which). I may go out after my haircut tonight and get some evening primrose stuff and/or black cohosh - both non-soy herbs that supposedly help with this crap. Really trying to avoid soy and the HRT prescriptions I have in my purse, if at all possible.
