Not with alcohol however…
I am feeling a lot better now that I was yesterday morning, though I can’t say that I am back to a full 100% yet. I still occasionally get what I call “fever bursts” where I get really warm, and sweat a bit, for a minute or two. If I were a woman I’d assume I were having hot flashes.
Due to tiredness and a lingering, pounding headache I didn’t accomplish much more than watching the final three episodes of Season 6 (BBC counting) of “The Great British Bake Show”. I also found out that there has been a seventh season, not available for streaming in the US however, and unfortunately know the winner before getting to see the first episode.
What I didn’t expect last night was a case of insomnia which kept me wide awake until nearly 2:00am until I finally crashed for the evening.
A New, And Probably Temporary, Relationship With Food
You know that I am bad with relationships, right. Well, recently losing nearly four days of my life to illnesses most likely caused by food has changed my attitude toward it, at least temporarily.
I have always been a “live to eat” person instead of an “eat to live” person. However, Sunday’s food consumption was one packet of fig bars, along with copious amounts of water and cranberry juice. I branched out a bit for yesterday’s consumption by eating one bowl of pasta with butter, and added a cup of tea.
I am going to attempt to follow a stripped down food lifestyle for awhile as a means of keeping my feet below me and saving a few bucks, at least until I can once again convince myself that food is not out to kill me. Who knows, I may lose a few pounds in the process as well.
Not What I Expected Times Two
While eating my one meal yesterday I decided to pop in the “Learn Basic German by DVD” DVD that I picked up from the library on Friday; it didn’t stay in my DVD player very long. Even if the video quality didn’t look as if it was recorded to DVD via a handheld VHS camcorder pointed at a movie screen, the content that I saw was nothing more than words/phrases on the screen which were read out in German with no other explanation as to their construction. This is not exactly the form of learning that works best for me.
In making my cup of tea last night I opened a new box of decaffeinated “Black Tea” from Bigelow that I bought because I am having troubles locating my favorite English and Irish decaffeinated Breakfast Mixes put out by Twinings. Because I am not one to pay great attention to packaging what I failed to read in addition to the stand-out “Black Tea” text was the subtle addition of “flavored with orange rinds and a special spice mix”. While I am not fundamentally opposed to flavored teas, it wasn’t what I was hoping to get.
I Understand That There Is A World Outside The Doors Of The ITP Estate
I’m hoping to feeling up to investigating said world. German classes are on break. I think due to my recent health problems I should wait another day or two before returning to LA Fitness. Food is not a top priority, so going out for lunch currently holds no allure. So my grand day out may consist of walking up to East Atlanta Village to mail my Georgia income tax payment. WHEEEEE! At least I’ll get some exercise in the process.
Hope yours is a great Tuesday.
