As I sit here writing this today, I am in quite a bit of pain. My joints hurt, my gut hurts, I just feel achy all over. My mornings have started out this way for the better part of a week and it’s getting old. I start a new job next Monday and I’m really nervous about my health.
I think the Thanksgiving holiday triggered the inflammation. I know better, but once a year I like to indulge and now I’m paying for it. Yesterday I started a diet of broth, bananas, rice, and applesauce. I hope by Monday I’m well enough to start without too much anxiety. I am so fatigued and can’t imagine working a full day feeling this way.
Blending all my food before consuming them has worked in the past. After about a week, I feel much better except I’m dying to eat solid foods again. I don’t think I’m sticking to the diet long enough because I eventually slip back into a state of pain and inflammation. I’ve read quite a bit about people healing themselves on a fruit diet, eating low fiber fruits and juicing. I may give it a try. What do I have to lose? The cravings and temptations of bad foods are the worst part of sticking to the diet. I love fruit and smoothies but sometimes I just want French fries or a piece of pizza, you know? Not to mention, I still cook for my family and obviously want to eat dinner with them ( I make some really good stuff 😉) but I can’t give in. I will just drink my blended banana with almond milk.
Here’s hoping I can heal enough this week to be ready to start work on Monday.
Enjoy the rest of your week! ❤️
