Shopping Again

When I went to the Dr last week for a hypothyroid follow up I brought up with him my increase in headaches and migraines. They’ve gotten pretty regular in the past 3 months with migraines almost once a week. There isn’t much he can do for them right now, and said that if they start waking me up at night that we will have to do an MRI or catscan. On no insurance that’s a scary proposition. I hope they clear up.

In the meantime, I’ve had 2 headaches in just as many days. Master thinks it might be the 24 hr OTC allergy meds I’m taking. So he’s directed me to get the other active ingredient one. Maybe I’m having issues from that. I guess I’ll see.

I go to the store on Wednesday for another 2 week shopping trip. I think I did pretty good this time, but want to cut the budget down so this trip will be about finding that happy medium and get it down and still have yummy food to eat. Any tips would be appreciated. Here’s some of the limitations I’m working with:

  • Gluten free option
  • No beans
  • Not vegetarian
  • Can be made without veggies in it (but added at the last minute to my meal)
  • Master only likes canned carrots and peas. I hate canned carrots and peas. So veggies are usually a side dish and separate.
  • No salads for dinner. I love salads for lunch.
  • Must have meat in every meal
  • No canned soups or boxed meals
  • Under $4/person per meal

Loki is such a joy to watch and learn to love. He’s extremely playful, inquisitive and loving. I’ll stop whatever I’m doing to watch him play. He doesn’t sleep as much as cats normally do but I am guessing that’s because he’s still young.

Max is warming up to him. I’ve seen them playing together and Loki has groomed Max a few times. That makes me happy to know that they will get along. It was something I worried about with Max being an aloof cat.

I really need new glasses. My eyes are not bad but these glasses are cheap and scratching and just hard to clean anymore. Maybe that’s helping with my headache. Master has promised I can go get an eye exam and new glasses soon, maybe even next month. I wonder if there are any sales going on in the area.

Oh something was asked in a FetLife thread this week that I asked Master to respond to because I wanted to know his thoughts. It was about what services he expected of his submissive. I have never thought of myself as a service submissive but as he started listing a few of the things I do for him (without even thinking of it now) I realized that service was a huge part of who I am for him.

Go figure.

I have a sub forum this week on Domestic Service and I’m struggling to put together talking points and a set of questions. I don’t connect to domestics as service so that’s likely why I’m having problems. Thankfully someone is coming that is strong in domestics so hopefully she’ll lead some of the discussion. I can share tips and tricks and whatnot, but as far as connecting to your service mindset.

That’s it for now.

    Try to eat as healthy as you can. Avoid processed food, fresh food is the healthier choice, I guess that you are going to be able to do it, buy it fresh an freeze it later.

    Also, vegetables are essential in every diet. Is difficult to cut down in meat but can decrease the amount day by day. Too much red meat is not very good for your heart, and if you going to buy meat swap it for chicken or turkey. Pork should be only for special occasions.

    If you eat vegatabes but your husband doesn´t you should maybe cook some things just for you, something that I imagine you already do taking into account that you are allergic to gluten. For example, you can try a very nice Spanish summer soup like Gazpacho for dinner. Is cheap an you just need few ingredients. Tomatoes, courgettes and red pepper and bread is what you need

    Buy olive oil, is healthier that the rest of the oils. I don´t know if is expensive in USA but I guess that you can make an effort and pay for something that is more expensive but it will improve the taste of your food.

    Minestrone soups, and homemade lasagnes, rice noodles with tons of vegetables and meat are also very good healty choices. I know that you can find gluten free pasta.

    I don´t know about labels because I am not from the States, but I try to do the grocery shopping once every 15 days and it works for me. Having a big freezer helps a lot. Don´t throwing every left over to the rubbish helps also, tupperware it an freeze it and you can reuse it in another meal.

    Well, I hope that it will work for you.

    Hi Luna,
    i read your Master’s post on Fetlife and i really want to say that i thought it was terrific! i loved hearing all the specific things that He enjoys from you. Your Master is somewhat different from other Dom’s in that He expects you to order for Him or drive the car. i love just how comfortable He appears in His choices and it is always nice to hear a completely different perspective!

    i will refrain from jumping on the headache train, but i’m sure you’re well aware of my plight. Unfortunately i have become a bit of an expert on pain relief and some major dos and don’ts. If you want to talk or if i can be of any help, please contact me any time! Be well!

    :) He said after he posted it that he only scratched the surface with what he expects of me as far as service. By now it’s all second nature so I couldn’t possibly list it all. He does have preferences that go opposite to what other relationships have and I guess that does make me unique :P I don’t find it unusual at all that I serve him in ways that other submissives don’t do.

    I’ll get the headaches reigned in. I’m trying different allergy meds (and allergies themselves could be the cause) now so I’ll know soon.

    I definitely will keep you in mind if I need some more pain relief ideas!

    lunaKM – Your Master has the right of it (of course!). I used to have migraines almost every day from age 20-33. Finally it was too much, ended up in the hospital. I went to a neurologist. It was the over the counter pain killers. My body/brain became addicted to aspirin, ibuprofen, Excedrin, allergy meds…I had to stop cold turkey, literally go through two weeks of MASSIVE, migraines – a withdrawal…Now, I might only have 2 migraines a year. I pray that you find what is causing your migraines.

    I always buy my glasses from zennioptical.com or coastal.com

    Zennioptical.com starts at like $7 for a complete pair including lenses and coastal.com will give you your first pair free on a bunch of different styles, you just have to pay P&H which is like $15.

    Hi Luna

    I just want to say that I enjoy reading your blog and I hope you are well. I wanted to give you a few pointers or tips on some meal ideas. Like you, I’m trying to shed some weight but my hubby doesn’t always cares for my choices. I have found that I can turn a lot of meals into a salad. Like for instance chicken dinner, that is obvious. but, like fajitas, steak, shrimp.. really anything. Then I make them super delicious with a low fat dressing or i keep the meat and veggies warm and throw them on. It sounds weird but I find I don’t add a gallon of dressing to my salad. I know your master doesn’t like veggies and my husband will eat them but only a few select ones prepared in the right way. So, what I found was “birdseye” vegetable steamers. they are usually only $1 a package and you could make a few meals out of one bag, so about .50 cents a meal. I am constantly adding these in just for me. They even have some lowfat ones in light butter sauce or cheese, add a chicken breast or whatever meat you’ve prepared for master and viola! The only challenge I have is eating my healthy option but then wanting what he is having too like all the bread or potatoes ect ect. Hopefully this has helped. Take care.
