Reamed Out

Tuesdays are acupuncture days. I look forward to my sessions, because I come out of them so relaxed. After the fiasco Monday night, with the leak in the basement, to say I was looking forward to my session would be an understatement!

Thank goodness my RE had warned me about my acupuncture practitioner's temper. I've been seeing her for about 6 weeks now, and I've experienced nothing but care and concern from her. This week was way different.

As soon as I walked into the room yesterday, she started questioning me, "Have you been eating dairy? Too much sugar?" I stammered out some excuses, some maybes...the barrage of questions continued. She finally told me, "Your face is breaking out, this is how I can tell you aren't following the diet!" And she looked MAD. For goodness sakes, it was a holiday weekend!

I'm trying really hard to follow the diet, but I love food, plus I'm cheap! But, I do want to get pregnant and stay pregnant. So, this morning, after the gym I went to the local health food store, and stocked up on sprouted bread, english muffins, pasta and brown rice. I don't exactly live in a metropolitan area, so I couldn't find half the things she's suggested, but I made do. I'm going to try and do better.

I just don't want to be yelled at again.


  1. Wow, she sounds fierce alright.

    But like you, I look forward to my acupuncture days.

  2. Um, she is scaring me into thinking I shouldn't be having dairy...
