I feel like crap this morning. I have gotten about 3 hours of sleep per night since Wednesday and it is not working out well for me (up with sick kid, doctor is trying to be 'conservative' and not treat with antibiotics but an urgent care visit may be in our future today). When I got up this morning all I wanted was a glass of orange juice and a breakfast sandwich... something with egg and cheese and meat on a biscuit. I almost did it too, but I told myself no. I have got to stay off the crazy train and while a piece of birthday cake on my kid's birthday might be an okay rare indulgence, eating refined grains and fatty sausage and drinking high (natural) sugar OJ is just not in the best interests of my health. I am determined to keep my carbs low generally and keep my calories low in order to reduce my intense PAIN and perhaps also my blood pressure. So I had a yogurt for breakfast instead. By the way, my newest 'find' is Siggi's Icelandic style skyr nonfat yogurt, which is like Greek yogurt in texture but even the flavored cups have low carbs; one container of Orange & Ginger flavor has 100 calories, 11 grams of carbs, and 14 grams of protein. No artificial anything. Good stuff and not overly sweet. Just FYI.
I am wondering if any of you have tried using apple cider vinegar for plantar fasciitis. Anyone? A friend told me it could help, but I have a hard time getting the stuff down. I wonder if ACV capsules of some sort would work. I am doing the stretches my foot doctor recommended, but still limp an awful lot. I had to skip my beloved agility class with the pup last week due to the pain.
It's a lovely sunny day so I am going to try and focus on the good today to brighten my sleep-deprived foggy mood. I'll take my daughter out in the yard for some sunshine and fresh air, maybe pull some weeds and think about where I want to plant my tulip bulbs. Have a great weekend!
