Staying Close To Home

I stayed up a little to late last night and so a nap was in order this morning.

Coffee and food in general still tastes awful. I haven't really cooked in about a week because I am just turned off with the whole thing. I feel for my husband because there is nothing in the fridge.

I seem to eat things that inspire me at that moment. Oatmeal, bread, muffins, fried eggs, and the such seem to be O.K. Anything else, tastes like cardboard, smells off and/or looks off. Of course, you'd think I'd be loosing weight but that does not happen because the days when my appetite is furious (steroids) ... I eat uncontrollably.

Today will be filled with school work and some house work ... trying to keep those dust bunnies at bay. I started putting nicknacks away because it takes too much effort to dust them. I'm continue to try and simplify my life. I've adopted a new rule ... if I bring something besides food home ... two things leave in it's place. I seem to be constantly reminded of how much stuff I have ... and how it is weighing me down.

Simplify ... simplify .... simplify ... freedom .... freedom ... freedom.

We seem to "forage" when our tastebuds are so trampled...in some ways it's like being pregnant where cravings ruled the stomach...living simply, eating what you feel like...all good. As long as you are eating and finding the things that have taste (or at least don't taste horrible)..that's the main goal.

yes my friend, i certainly understand the need for a simple life- i adopted that attitude many moons ago, and never have regretted it.
sorry food is still proving a trial for you- when i was pregnant with Prue, EVERYTHING smelt like FISH and turned me off food for months........

sending love, Lisa xx

I know all about those awful tastes from the chemo!!!! I think I was on the "Cream of Wheat Diet" as that was about all I could stand. Like you, when things started to taste good again, I would binge! Coffee still is terrible and it was my favorite thing before cancer! Oh well!!!!!

Oh, I hope that you are soon able to enjoy food again! That sucks!
Purging is good! I am quite fond of getting rid of the useless things that clutter our homes! Hope your weekend is going well.
