Days and days since I last posted.
It wasn’t an intentional thing.
I missed a day, and then this happened and that happened and so on…
You know how it is, right?
Then so much time passes and the thought of doing a “catch-up explanation” post is exhausting.
And because I’m me, I start feeling guilty (or guiltier).
So, maybe tomorrow becomes I don’t know when
Today it is.
Here’s a fast re-cap.
I’ve had good days and bad days.
Husband took a week long business trip to Atlanta followed immediately by two daughters heading off to Florida for a visit to Harry Potter world.
Lots of lists and laundry and a few shopping trips.
Mostly laundry…before and after!
The money situation has been challenging. We’ll leave it at that.
The vegan diet didn’t work out well for me. My vision showed no improvement and my moods didn’t either. In fact, I feel that I was more depressed and anxious overall. A visit and discussion with my doctor showed that I was seriously deficient in vitamin D.
I’m now on a supplement to remedy that and I’m feeling much better. Research has shown that a vitamin D deficiency can affect mood so maybe that is part of the answer. Multiple stressful situations have been handled with relative calm and clear thinking. I’ve worked through them without losing my sh@#.
It is really hard and a lot of work to get all the nutrients one needs on a vegan diet. It can also be more expensive than I can afford. I did pick up a taste for some new veggies and our diet improved overall. So, the new plan is to more veggies and meat only a couple of times a week. We’ll continue to keep out processed food.
I’m going to just keep reading and looking for answers to be a better and happier me.
It’s all about growth and taking the next step.
I guess the adventure wouldn’t be as much fun if we had all the answers ahead of time.
Here’s to trying new things and enjoying the journey…
celebrating the wins…
and learning from the things that don’t go as we’d hoped (see how I avoided the word “failure” there?)…
Life is good – it’s all good.
Welcome back me!
