OK, it’s time to take a deep breath and drag this aching carcass out of bed! I have 2.5 hours to do a final bout of revision for today’s exam. The lecturer emailed us some key words so I’m going to make sure I’ve covered off on their context.
I had a massage yesterday afternoon. (And boy did I deserve it after the morning’s Spoonie horrors.) A sports science friend who is now studying physiotherapy has a mobile massage service, so I thought I’d test her skills. I was hoping to get some relief from this neuromuscular nightmare. Ever the optimist that’s me! Alas no miracle. A daily massage would be pretty good though.
Apologies to my friends who followed for cycling and fitness! The chronic illness side of this journal has been dominating lately damn damn damn. I’ve kept up the Daily Cycology for you at least!
Anyway, I was just thinking that I should give myself a little daily treat for a mental boost. What shall today’s be? Give me some ideas! (Not donuts though, I don’t like trans fat 😝)
to announce that Chobani has a pumpkin spice greek yogurt cup.
My acquiring this precious thing is of utmost importance starting immediately.
I repeat Chobani has a pumpkin spice greek yogurt.
We ran out of Chobani yesterday and my entire day was ruined. I am not joking. I think I was still experiencing the repercussions this morning - UC sufferers walk a tight-rope and important things like food - especially pro-biotic food - can completely unbalance us.
I usually eat plain but spiced pumpkin sounds worth a try!
Thank you for the good wishes friends! The exam went ok despite some stressful ulcerative colitis-related issues in the morning that made me run late when I was on-track to be comfortably early/on time. ‘Spoonie’ problems! I got there stressed and rattled but everyone was still outside. A friend gave me a big hug, which was just what I needed. Her empathy is something you can’t study for and will make her a super AEP. I have definitely passed the exam and on reflection, am even hopeful I did well! Now back to study for tomorrow’s exam!
Off to my Metabolic mid-sem exam and another exam tomorrow! Wish me luck!
We were out of yoghurt this morning. Noooo! That meant I couldn’t have my usual satisfying breakfast and no matter what I ate, I was STARVING all day. When dinner rolled around (I made coconut chicken curry), I consumed ‘til I ballooned. Now I feel very very uncomfortable. All because there was no yoghurt this morning.
I would NEVER fed raspberries to a rabbit because, hell, here in Perth they are SO expensive that I can’t afford to eat them myself, let alone feed them to rabbits! *jealous of that rabbit*
Just finished watching the drama series ANZAC Girls about the Aussie-Kiwi nurses in WWI. Based on real women, one of the head nurses had a long and distinguished career spanning both wars. She finally retired and, at the age of 74, she fell in love and got married. What an awesome woman!
Stopped off at a strawberry farm on the way home from Lancelin and bought a box of these babies! So fresh, sweet, ripe and delicious. Definitely superior to grocery store-bought.
Strawberries and vanilla ice cream for dessert tonight I reckon!
Yep, with grated chocolate! Mmmm.
