Woke up at 2:30, then again at 4:30 when I just gave up and read in bed. Luckily for me today if I get too tired, I can take a nap. No more chimes or milk. Just as there is a lot of freedom on the milk cure, for me there is also regimentation. I […]

I woke up to rain out my open window at 5:00. Better than the 4:30 wake ups though. I felt good this morning. Today is the last day of this milk cure. 3 weeks, subsisting on whole raw milk (there really isn’t any other kind) and some water. I knew I could do it and it would […]
Along with falling asleep at 8:30, comes a wake up at 4:30. I know why I’m falling asleep so early, but I’m hopeful that once I’m off all this milk, that I’ll be able to push my bedtime to 9:30 (I still need 8 hours of sleep). Only two days left on just pure milk. […]
Early to bed, early to rise? I was asleep by 8:30 and woke up at 4:30. That is 8 hours of sleep so I guess I’m okay. Keeping in mind that milk does have tryptophan in it and I am drinking milk that gets warmer during the day (I leave the gallon jug out all […]
I slept well last night, I woke up once around 3 am, but went right back to sleep until my alarm at 5:30. I’m feeling pretty good today, but do think I could have used a bit more sleep. Good days for me are boring days for my blog.
Slept well last night, but woke up around 5:30 with my mind full of programming. Stop it brain, I still have one more day off! I know it’s probably boring to read the “I feel good” portions, but really I feel good. One of the reasons I did a daily post last year and now […]
For the first time since this started, I “slept in”. Meaning I didn’t wake up until 6:30. That’s 9 1/2 hours of sleep. No headache, and I felt really good this morning. I spent part of this morning, prepping a pork shoulder roast for the stock pot. Yesterday I put it in a marinade of […]
I slept well last night, had the window open and the fan going. A storm is coming in and the front dropped the temperatures down about 20 degrees. I think the storm caused a headache though. I woke up at 3:30 with it. I’m not susceptible to pressure headaches, but maybe the milk is making […]
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 […]
I didn’t sleep well last night. It was a combination of things. First, it was still 70 degrees outside at 3 in the morning. Yes, I was awake then. Even with all the windows in the upstairs open and a fan blowing from the window, it was still warm. I only slept with a sheet […]
