My Bernaise got slightly thick–don’t believe you can hold it like the recipe claims. Still, it was a great flavor and nice dinner.
This is an appointment week–hair today, dentist Thurs., Friday lab results/physical. So much running means a week of little research and even less profundity. But that’s ok. My son’s tumor marker was raised some today which is worrisome (testicular cancer), but it was the less specific one so we are hoping he has a cold or something. No change in treatment for another three months, but that will put me on edge. Keep a good thought.
Food: triple cheese burger from Wendy’s, no bun. Coffee, filtered water, couple ounces of shaved turkey. The burger had a bit of tomato and onion on it–I will very slowly introduce a very small amount of veggies here and there. I have decided mostly just cooked broccoli and possibly plain lettuce so I can make steak or chicken or shrimp salads with various dressings. But that’s it. See how that goes next month or so.
Observations: I’m still battling some bloating and a side ache. This is not something new to the diet, but something I was so hopeful the first month had completely resolved. Things to discuss during physical on Friday. I will post a total list of changes and labs on Saturday, plus pictures. Weight loss has been great.
Dreams: I had them, but I can’t recall them. Your dreams??
I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…
