I've started school and am jobhunting, and the BTD has fallen by the wayside a little bit. Okay, a lot. We went out for brunch on Sunday and when my food arrived, Gordon commented that the only thing on my plate that was BTD acceptable for me was the eggs. Oops. Yet in my mind I had justified the bacon, cheese, and avocado as being 'okay this time'. Well, occasionally that is okay, but I can generally find something on the menu that is much higher compliance than THAT! Oh, and it came with a side of potatoes, too. Also, in the last couple of weeks I've managed to get myself hooked on caffeine again*, and last night I tossed and turned until about 4 this morning. I did manage to get out of bed by about 9:30 this morning, but today is going to be a hard day.
And I seem to have done something to my back - yesterday it popped all the way up and down my back in a weird way and I've had a headache ever since. Fortunately, we go back to the chiropractor later today, so I don't have to live with this much longer.
I'm reining it all in again over the next few days - lamb and artichokes for me! (And spinach, and buffalo, etc.)
School is AWESOME, by the way. Amazing program. Here's the link to the Spiritual Psychology program I'm taking: http://gousm.edu/
It's already a lot of work, but I am enjoying every minute of it!

Just when you think you've done the BTD so long that you know every value for every food you eat, life throws you a curveball.
Gordon is still learning about the BTD, and is getting more and more curious about how it all works and what is good and bad for him. (He's given up beef, but is hanging onto tomatoes for dear life.) Last night I pulled my BTD encyclopedia out to look something up, and he started flipping through it and was reading off food values. No surprises on most of them - I knew what was good and bad for both of us, he was surprised by several values. Then he read off "'silver dollar mushrooms' - good for me, bad for you".
WHAT? BAD FOR ME? I'm going to check the status of that on-line and double check it, because I thought they were fine for me, and the latest values are on-line. (Furious inquisition of Typebase IV.) Well, daggone, they really ARE avoids for Os. Hunh. Seven and a half years on the BTD and I'm just figuring this out.
Sure makes me wonder what else I thought I knew, and not just regarding the BTD!
