black fun.gus, CD 1

Sorry my title is so weird, but I am feeling a bit weird today. Today is officially CD1, but the cramps are annoying and the flow is, uh, not the usual flow I'd associate with CD1. Getting to know my body, huh?

On a positive note, DH has been extremely helpful to me in getting my new diet in order to accommodate my TCM orders. He is a chef, and I can only boil water and make about 5-7 real dishes, so attacking the list of things that are good for me to eat (millet, quinoa, peach kernel, black fungus, etc) was a tad overwhelming for me but was music to his ears. We shopped together and he helped me with the "menu" of my new ingredients. We even hunted around at the local asian market to find some cooling teas with mulberry, along with other odd items. I feel as though I can make some real changes to my diet now that actually make sense and that will taste good. Hurray!

I go in for my second acupuncture appointment tomorrow afternoon. I'll post more then. I won't lie, though. Although I am extremely confident in taking the TCM route, a little piece of me thought about calling Dr. S and telling her it's day 1 and to begin my first clo.mid cycle. Shhh... don't tell anyone I thought that!!!

Nice!! I am a tad (okay a LOT) jealous that your hubs is a chef! If I want to eat better I have to shop and cook for myself, which scares the bejeesus out of me.

I am glad you have a resident chef to help with the diet. I am way too prone to suggestion and I don't know if I could stomach black fungus without renaming it black mushrooms or some other mind trick. :)
