Swelling: It's going down slowly. But it is a lot better now. At least I'm not afraid to go outside.
Other weirdness: Prickles in chin comes and goes. I had a pain in my stomach this morning... I hope it's not gastric. :(Sleep achieved yesterday night: 8-9 hours, 2am - 1pm (twice disrupted for an hour or two). Also took an hour long nap after my friends this afternoon.
Mood: Looking forward to sleep and a new week.
I've recently been interested in the topic of the primal blueprint and have started listening to some podcasts to understand it more. I think it's something about this whole surgery experience that has brought back the health junkie in me. I haven't had the opportunity to get out to the library to get the books, but I guess there's a lot of material online to work with.
I don't quite agree with the Primal Blueprint's focus on Darwinism (because I don't agree with the whole theory of evolution), but I believe that some of the theories are pretty sound in the light of adaptive evolution/priming oneself to be strong enough to survive and thrive.
The 10 main rules is pretty simple:
- Eat lots of animals, insects (0_o"), and plants
- Move around a lot at a slow pace
- Lift heavy things
- Run really fast every once in a while
- Get lots of sleep
- Get some sunlight everyday
- Avoid trauma
- Avoid poisonous things
- Use your mind
|Hope this helps!|
I'm going to read more about the Primal Blueprint day by day, but for now, I'm going to try to incorporate some of these guidelines into my life - including increasing the amount of sleep, controlling my stress levels, and going out for a walk in the sunlight everyday. We'll see how that goes.
|SO good for the hair. :)|
On other notes: I did some black sesame paste dessert for dinner today in my efforts to take care of my hair. :) There are so many health benefits to it - especially for my hair - I think I just might have have it every other day.
Okay, not much than that today. I'm just going to do my warm compress and get some sleep now so I can wake up bright and early tomorrow.
Missed, slept in today. :)

High point of the day
Friends came over, and watching this little cutie.
Low point of the day
Not quite a low point, but I got tired quite quickly when my friends came over. Other than that, it was a pretty good day
