Just got back from a four day trip to Oregon. My best friend and I drove up there on Sunday, and drove back yesterday. I'm exhausted. Four days of crappy food, not enough sleep, and no real exercise (except for a nearly 3 mile walk with my sister-in-law who lives up there). I got back last night and practically passed out. Woke up after 9 hours of sleep feeling as though I hadn't slept at all.
During our trip, I had a reaction to something I ate every day. My ears would start burning and were very itchy for anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. So it's time to do some serious detoxing and see if I can calm down my immune system. This isn't fun, and I haven't felt like myself for much of the summer, so it's time to get strict about things again and figure out what's going on with my body. I'm going to give myself through the weekend to get rid of what's in the house (or to tell Gordon to put it somewhere NOT in the kitchen) and to stock up on some healthy basics. Come Monday, it will be meat and veggies (and some fruit) for me.
