365 Raw: Day 10 with “TP”

I woke up the morning of Day 10 feeling “OK”, but I had a lot more energy throughout the day.

toptoiletpaper2I really dislike most toilet paper commercials. Usually they are quite cheesy, although, I guess you kind of have to be when you’re getting “real about what happens in the bathroom.” Personally, I’m not a fan of talking about what happens in the bathroom, but truth be told, your bathroom trips tell a lot about your health. I have no desire to talk about it much further than that; However, if you’re wanting to read more detailed information, be sure to check out The Straight Poop. I do think that we could all use an education on elimination. I am just not the gifted person to deliver such a message. What I will say is that I am in the bathroom far more often these days, which means I’m going through toilet paper much faster. Fortunately, one of the chores I added to the 10 year old’s list this school year was to check each bathroom’s TP supply once a week. No one likes to hang out in the bathroom at the mercy of passersby, begging for some kind soul to bring them a new roll. Now I don’t have to 🙂

What I read: Job 24-28

What I ate:

  • Breakfast – Ten oranges juiced with electric citrus juicer
  • Lunch – 10 Bananas blended with 8oz of water – YUM!
  • Dinner – 1/2 large watermelon, 1 pound of romaine, 2 cups of grape tomatoes with creamy dressing (1 mango, 1/2 avocado, handful of grape tomatoes, lime juice, parsley, & cilantro blended together)
  • Going to the grocery store on Day 11!!  WOOHOO!

Here are the notes I made regarding my symptoms throughout Day 10:

  • dry/itchy eyes, skin, and scalp
  • acne – clearing
  • aching muscles and muscle spasms
  • foggy brain
  • irritability
  • mood swings – better
  • blood sugar fluctuations
  • fatigue – much less
  • unable to sleep well – slept ok.
  • unquenchable thirst (again, thank you, salt) – better
  • cravings – None.
