- Will I change my diet?
- Have I lost my appetite?
- Do I still want to cook / eat?
Answer to #2. Nope. But, essentially, there is a price for the delights of #1. Mostly I believe it is stress related. The body rebels. As the pain seems to increase, the gut wrenches more. So it goes.
But I will not "cleanse", or add multivitamins, or any such notional dietary changes to my life. One thing I LOVE and always will - is good, great yummy sustaining wholesome, real lovin food.
Last week- Ginny dropped off home made banana bread, Catherine brought by her famous bran muffins.
- Gabrielle dropped by with scones and muffins- bits of heaven home made
- Jenn dropped off the most BEAUTIFUL cupcakes I have ever seen
- Lisa sent me a menu of supperworks for me to choose from which she will make and drop off for the duration
A wise friend who shall remain nameless said to me today - "the cleanse thing, not so fun - and I did not lose weight." I imagine the weight loss thing is going to happen naturally, as each breast is supposedly, what 4-5 lbs?!!
Answer to #3. Long story. Tonight [after I attempted large-appliance cleaning and repair in a fit of pique at dishes that come out of stupid machine dirtier than when I put them in and a flooded kitchen and removing certain parts of the kitchen cupboards with Michael to make sure there was you know, no long term damage, without a WORD of reproach] I thought, hey, why not make chicken cordon bleu, with a nice succotash??!!
So I did. Come hell or high dishwasher backwash water. In the middle of cleaning kitchen floor with mop and bucket, beep beep - uh honey cordon bleu is done...heh heh
Sucking it back with prosecco, life felt sort of you know, normal. Sort of. And I didn't even have a nap today.
PS - Non sequitor- in pharmacy asking pharmacist re topical pain killer for you know, pain in chest from cancer- she says well, did you pull a muscle??!! uh.......
