..a new supplement shake that a friend recommended in the hopes that it’ll help with my malabsorption and energy issues. It kinda messed with my tummy today, but I’m hoping that’s just my body getting used to receiving more nutrients than it’s currently getting. I’m really crossing my fingers on this one because it tastes great and it has basically every supplement in it that I’ve found to be helpful for me (and more).. if I could just drink a yummy shake every morning instead of taking a dozen pills, that would be awesome!
..everything I eat this week so that I’ll have a better idea of where my diet is lacking. It should also help me identify any symptom-triggers that I haven’t realized were triggers since I haven’t been paying attention. I also just want to be more mindful when I make and eat my food. I think that it’s easier to be healthy when I’m paying extra close attention to the things I’m putting in my body. (I mean, duh).
..meals! Er, I’m in the planning stages for meal planning. I’m gonna jump in officially next week after I get a more robust look at what my normal, unplanned week of eating looks like. In the meantime, I’m collecting recipe and snack ideas that look yummy and EASY because that’s the only way I’ll stick with meal planning, haha. It’s supposed to make my life easier, not more complicated!
..boots and sweaters, YAY! It’s still not really chilly in Nashville, but it’s definitely getting cooler so I’m taking advantage of my tendency to be cold all the time and fully embracing the layers!
..my counselor who helps me find perspective and encourages me to be the best I can • getting to catch up and really connect with one of my oldest friends • making new internet friends and building trust within a new community • color-coded planning systems • TV nights with Josh • comfy socks • heating pads • Pinterest • tasty supplemental nutrition shakes • gentle encouragement and affirmation that I’m on the right path
What are you trying, tracking, planning, wearing, and/or thankful for this week?
