“Paleo” week 4 review + Lyrica week 1

Last week was a challenging week.  We had the builders in renovating our bathroom and I was starting Lyrica.  Not to mention a whole other ton of issues that aren’t really relevant but were still there.

Last week I sucked at being “Paleo.”  I was either starving or had no appetite, and there were far too many cheats in there.  I mean seriously Steph and I shared a small loaf of freshly made bread in seconds.  (I mean freshly baked bread, who can pass that up when it’s right there in your face?)  Clearly not me.

So, as I was saying, far too much crap, not enough working out, and just all over not a good week.  That being said, I managed to lose 1.5 pounds.  So go figure.  (Of course I had a really upset stomach on Friday, so the weight loss could be due to that.)  Not that it’s stopping me from counting it as a loss.  🙂

This week I hope to be far more on plan.  I have a goal in mind that I really would like to hit by the time I go to London.  (Of course not meeting the goal won’t change anything, but it is something I would like to see happen.)

As far as the Lyrica experience went, it was “ok.”  It wasn’t great, I had plenty of moments of brain fuzziness and had a lack of mental acuity   Some days were harder than others.  I explained all of this to my GP today, and we did decide to raise the nighttime dose.  I decided this because I am going away in 2 weeks and if there are going to be side effects that are worse, I want to know before I am in London.  This way I can have until the 8th (when I see my GP again) to see how this dosage goes and how I feel and how cognisant I am on it.  And we will go from there.


Are you going on holiday or a trip soon?  If so, where?  If not, where would you like to go?

    Oh, I hate trying to get the doses right on drugs – you always have to go too far in both directions before you know what’s right for you. I hope you feel better soon!

      After 7 years, I take all of these medical recommendations and changes with a grain of salt. I will be pleased if it works. I won’t be surprised if it doesn’t. After about 20 different trials . . . it’s not a big deal.
