Sleep last night started out better, but my leg cramped up again - same place as the previous night, so unmanageable - at 3:30. Did the magnesium oil thing again, and fell back asleep pretty quickly. Only to be awakened to a crashing noise around 5 (I think) as one of the suction-cup baskets in the shower took a dive. It's just a little too lively around here at night.
158.6 this morning. My feet are still pretty swollen and my ankles stiff; I expect other parts are as well. I hunted down the arnica yesterday and put it on the swollen places and bruises, and it seems to be helping with the latter, at least.
- tea with cream
- the usual supplements
- scrambled eggs
- sausage patties
- a Gatorade
- cheddar cheese (2 pieces)
- a total of 4 almond-flour chocolate chip cookies through the day
- a 1/4-lb hamburger patty
- salad with blue cheese dressing
- small bowl of strawberry ice cream
- a few peanuts
Better. Definitely less snacky and overall lower carb. Again, today's goal is 3 cookies in total, and the plan is to fast lunch. I am noticing that my appetite is diminished, a bit.
I don't know if the Gatorade helped or not. I went back to lemon jello water this morning after forgetting it yesterday, and threw a pinch of sea salt into it, for a few more minerals. So I probably won't do Gatorade today.
No sleep means no walk in the mornings. Which sucks, but I wake up just wiped out after nights like that. Try again tomorrow. And in the meantime, I may go get an aspirin or two - I've re-applied the arnica, but am pretty achy.
