I woke up full of energy this morning, did some chores, and made breakfast for the family. I have managed so far to avoid violating my 24 hours virtually sugar free diet, required for the PEM scan tomorrow. The clinic calls it “sugar free” but I am allowed some veggies (green beans, cauliflower, asparagus, broccoli)  and I think there are sugars in all veggies. Let’s just call it a diet that is extremely low on the glycemic index. EXTREMELY LOW. I don’t think I’d make a good carnivore. I had two eggs with some cheese. (I would have thought that cheese would be on the verboten list since it is made from milk but have since read that lactose, the natural sugar in milk, is removed from the milk in the cheese making process.)

My energy soon went down the tubes after breakfast making and I took a nap. I’m still lounging under a blanket.
