Since getting the yeast infection I’ve decided to back off ferments. For some reasons I thought they might feed the yeast?? And I’ve noticed that I haven’t had a BM in 2 days (I know, I know… I just haven’t gotten around to doing an enema but will tonight) and flatulence which I battled for months is now back (it only rears its ugly head when I eat sugar and I haven’t). So I’m back to ferments. The infection is getting better and I’m on my 3rd full day of inserts. I’m doing kefir/yogurt and water kefir daily.
Whew.. had a BM. Large, which I expected. I was wondering if the stress of the last couple of days (back to school, DH not smoking, having to fix 3 lunches, etc) got to me as well as the yeast infection and cutting ferments. I hope I’m back on track!!
DH got a clean bill of health from the doctor today: that included heart, x-ray, kidneys, liver, lungs and bloodwork. I’d like to see the detail of the bloodwork. The only ‘concern’ was a ‘high’ cholesterol number of 212. What??!! I told DH 212 is not high and not to worry. I would have liked to see the breakdown so I could calculate the ratios but 212 is nothing to worry about. DH has been a non-smoker for over a week and says his taste is returning. Yay!!! He is a bit more hungry than usual. I told him to steer clear of carbs and sweets as they would make him gain weight but he’ll have to see for himself to believe it.
Both kids are asleep – unheard of!! I just have to made DH’s sandwich for tomorrow and take out some chicken for dinner. Awesome!! I’ve set up another jar of pickles last night and I need to check on my water kefir batch. It seems I constantly have something brewing lately. Flatulence is really bad. I wonder why?? I had SK with lunch and pickle with dinner. I’m going to go drink some pickle juice….
