Category: Erika (A)
Welcome to McErika's where over 2,000 have been served an almost daily prescription for laughter and drama in my attempts to master the Type A diet.
There is something very strange going on in my body today. I feel refreshed. I don't know why. Maybe it's just that when you finally get rid of a migraine, you can't help but feel refreshed. It's more than that though and I just can't quite put my finger on it. It could also be that the St. John's Wort is starting to kick in just as I'm about to quit it anyway.
You see, I take it during my "moon" week. I don't take it otherwise because it interacts with the cytochrome P450 system in the liver and then the enzymes metabolize contraceptive hormones too quickly. That could be bad (or good depending on how you see an unplanned, life-changing events).
All I know is that I woke up this morning feeling very good and I am about to go to bed tonight feeling equally as good. Tired, but good.
I had my usual breakfast. I also had a lot of cookies at work today (darn you Sharon, just kidding). I also ate roast turkey and passion iced tea on my break. I'm about to end the day with a frozen meal:
Amy's Brown Rice and Vegetables: let's see, it contains brown rice, onions, mushrooms (uh oh), broccoli, tofu, carrots, spinach, celery, spices, olive oil, tamari, vinegar (uh oh), sesame tahini, sea salt, safflower oil (hmmm), garlic.
Yeah, that sounds pretty benign. I've had it before. It's pretty good. I know I shouldn't eat before bed but this is my life as a health care professional. I get off a late evening and I get up early for the morning shift. You eat when you can.
That's all for now, folks. Good night.
