For some reason I am always hungry and continue to lose weight. I have been trying to focus on strengthening my core through physiotherapy and exercising on my recumbent bike 3 times a day when at all possible....
Sleep continues to be huge issue for me. I mostly manage to fall asleep but am awake consistently at 3:30/4am and do not fall back asleep after that time. Often I wake up once before this time as well. This only gives me about 4 hours of sleep in a row, which is not enough to be restorative. Sleep is very important to healing so I will be trying some different sleep aides (again...) to see if I can find one that allows me to get into a deeper sleep. What a blessing sleep is - another thing we take for granted when it is not an issue in our lives!
I am still struggling to control the swelling and bloating which is caused by digestion problems and an overgrowth of yeast in my intestines again. I am back on medication to control Candida, and I have completely cut out fruit and sweeter vegetables until I stabilize again....I don't think my digestive enzymes are working so I will be looking into switching types and see if that helps control the inflammation a little better.
The basic diet is going well - I am constantly hungry which causes a lot of extra physical work as each meal has to be cooked from fresh produce. I am slowly figuring out a routine and with the help of friends I am beginning to prepare and freeze as much food as possible in advance so that my days are not overwhelmed with preparing and consuming food.
