Candy Hangover

I woke up today feeling like crap. I had been letting myself eat candy with Wallace the last few days. Now my body hurts and I feel so drained. Besides being up too late working on school most nights, I think overall my sleep has been better the last few weeks.

I had been doubting the efficacy of my big dietary changes but now I’m convinced it is helping. I think dairy and beef are the biggest contributors to my pain, with corn and pork to a lessor extent. I haven’t tried anything soy heavy to test that one. I haven’t been perfect but if I don’t eat beef, candy, or cheese then I feel like a relatively normal tired person.

I am also taking magnesium, trace minerals, B vitamins, probiotics, milk thistle, and nettle. The magnesium and minerals have been helping my migraines, body aches, and constipation. The thistle and nettle help my anger via my liver. If I miss the probiotics then I get an upset stomach and acidy issues.

My face cleared up pretty quick when I cut our dairy and beef. I’m sure it will be a wreck by tomorrow.

I just want to sleep the day away and feel better tomorrow.

    All our leftover candy is leaving our house tomorrow. Too tempting and yet always disappoints.

  2. I need it gone too! I bought some good, clean, dark chocolate today and that helped.

    I gave Evelyn exactly 3 items from her bucket and I’ve eaten 80 percent of the rest already. I’m disgusted with myself. I’m throwing the rest away today!

  4. Yowza! I had a few pieces of candy, nothing like I used to eat. I already gave all the things that definitely have gluten in them to my mom.
