Woke up this morning at 4:30. As usual for most mornings on the cure, I’m feeling fine. Ready to do my regular work today.
Output is still not coming anywhere close to input, despite feelings of urgency. I am down to 3 1/4 quarts of milk (13 cups) now. Since I’m losing less than an ounce per hour, I’m not noticing it too much. I did feel slight hunger pains in the evening, but not enough to make me want to eat anything.
Tonight was a much better night than I’ve had for the last few. A storm is coming in, so it was much cooler. Cool enough to shut the air conditioner off and open the windows.
My weekend plans (depending on how I’m feeling) are to change out my closet to spring clothes, and move all my planters from below my deck to my deck. If I have the time and energy, I’ll also haul the dirt that has been resting all year under the deck back onto the deck and fill the planters. (Those are my plans, they may change). I can’t plant here until the second weekend in May, but I can start getting it ready. All of this involves multiple trips up and down stairs, hauling heavy items by the way.
As I pick up my milk order today, I’m reminded that I’m at the end of my second week on the cure. I’m thinking about food, especially since I have a camping trip planned for a few weeks from now. What we are going to eat, what I need to prepare. I’m making a pulled pork, and since that freezes well, I’m probably going to start that this weekend as well. I got the cultures for my cheeses yesterday, but I’m not making the cheeses until April 27th. (Since I’m making fresh cheeses for camping, I’d like them to be as fresh as possible).I even started my first grocery shopping list! But all my food thinking is for the future. No cravings, no wishing I could eat now. Which is nice. Still making yogurt. So long as I have extra milk, I’ll be making yogurt.

Weight is up slightly today, which considering that I’m still bloated and drank over 5 quarts of liquid yesterday (3 1/2 quarts of milk, + 52 ounces of water), I’m totally not surprised at the situation. Add into it that I’m at a time where I’m retaining water, and I’m neither surprised or worried. I’m still about a pound and a half down from when I started this.
Last year was definitely about weight loss. This year seems to be other things. Both things I can track and things that are happening that I have no idea about. Regardless, my glucose numbers are really good. Even though I’m at 101 today for fasting it’s still so much better than where I have been.
My tongue is much pinker today. Not totally back to normal, but almost.
