Journal Entry 278 – GOT & Psoriasis

Life:

This is the first time I’ve ever posted on a Tuesday before. I forgot on Sunday, because Sarah and I stayed out late to watch the Mayweather vs McGregor fight. That fight was rigged by the way. McGregor didn’t even get knocked down once and they called it. A proper TKO is 3 knockdowns in a row. Don’t get me wrong he was getting knocked around, but you still don’t need to call the fight that early. McGregor did very well considering he never boxed before though. I don’t think either boxer is too upset though. Mcgregor got $30 million and Mayweather $100 million. They put up a good show.

Game of Thrones as was also this Sunday and didn’t disappoint. I really enjoyed watching this season and the show is heading in the right direction. My prediction is that Cersei and Euron are going to fail and try to kill Daenerys and Jon Snow’s armies. Jamie Lannister will join Daenerys and help them in some fashion. One of the Lannister brothers will end up killing Cersei, although not sure which one. I think Jamie might do it, after what happened and Game of Thrones is very unpredictable. They will defeat the White Walkers some how led by Jon Snow. Jon Snow will rightfully win the iron throne but turn it down. I think something might happen to Daenerys. Death always finds those who try to take over power in this show. Jon is not trying to take over power, he more or less is fighting for what is right and power will find him. Big difference. Daenerys is getting a little power hungry and wants everyone to bend the knee to her. She may react very negatively to learning Jon Snow is her nephew and the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. I don’t know she will, but I have a feeling. I hope I’m wrong on the last point because I like her character, but after watching Game of Thrones for 7 seasons nothing ever plays out like you want it to.

Time for a psoriasis update. Otzela suppressed a lot of it, but ultimately it stopped working. It also gave me a hive like rash that I still have a little of. I got a very bad sun burn while on this medicine and in the past that sun burn would hurt for a few days and then go away. I STILL have remnants of this sun burn and it gave me a rash all down my body. I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out why I still have a rash from this sun burn. I stopped taking Otzela. The next stop my doctor recommended is Humira, which is injectable. I really don’t want to go that route. All of these drugs suppress your immune system and I want no part of that. I canceled my appointments until I know for sure what I want to do. I have been doing a ton of research on how to heal it naturally and there is no one size fits all answer. Some people cure it on vegan, keto, dairy free, nightshade free, paleo, etc… I honestly think it depends on if you have an allergy to a certain food without realizing it. This is why different things work for different people, because not everyone has the same allergies. Dairy seems to be a big one for a lot of people. I eat a lot of dairy that mainly comes from protein powder. I have eaten the same protein powder for over 5 years now. Maybe it is possible that my body has built up antibodies against it. It is my theory and I’m going to test it out. I have switched to an organic plant based protein for now. It tastes very good too. Do I need to get rid of all dairy though? I really don’t think so. Besides protein powder, I don’t have a huge dairy load in my diet. It can be maddening trying to figure out what the problem is, so just taking small steps to see.

Workouts:

I have decided to try and lift 6 days a week now. Chest, triceps, shoulders on day 1, 3 and 5. Back, biceps, rear shoulders on days 2, 4 and 6. Cardio will be done only a couple days a week if that and Sunday is for tennis.

My lifts have slightly gone up across the board except for Bench Press.

Diet:

Nothing special in terms of diet. Its been undulating for the most part depending on the day and hunger levels. I’m still not eating a ton of meat or protein for that matter, but my gains are untouched.
