  • Candy- I had the same difficulty with another thread a few days ago. I backed out of the thread, and re-entered, and it fixed itself, whatever it was.

    • Yes, it's showing fine now (and had the same in another journal too).

        S2C=475 + Sabine's 10 = 485

        Use Your Brain, Move & Lift, Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
        I am tired of using my brain. I want this ESL AQ to be OVER!!!
        Oh, wait, it will be. Tomorrow, whether I'm finished my assignment or not.
        Yes, that's what I spent most of my day doing...
        And it looks like I'll be spending most of my evening doing it as well...

        I did dress in my running gear this morning (well, it was 11am - that's morning for me),
        I went outside, and around the corner of the house.
        Then the wind hit me and I (swore just a little) and turned around and went back inside.
        The race is on Sunday.

        My Dragon has decided to "play" with me.
        Of course she's still in bed with me in the mornings, but for the past two days she's decided to torment me mid afternoon.
        "You're hungry" she whispers.
        "I can't be hungry, I JUST ate a 3 egg frittata with spinach, red peppers, mushrooms, and feta."
        "Doesn't matter, you're HUNGRY...Lets see, what are you hungry for??...I KNOW!...You NEED chocolate!"
        "No I don't. Besides, we ate it all yesterday"
        "Your Daughter has a big bag of Aero Bubbles"
        "I tried them yesterday, they tasted BLAH"
        "But they're chocolate!"
        "What about a Mango Tea?"
        "TEA!! Are you SERIOUS???"
        and on and on and on and on and on

        I had my 1st magical iodine pill today.
        Please tell me iodine can slay Dragons???

              • I ran this morning.
                Well, I did MY version of running (run a minute/walk a minute).
                I decided to try it in my old running shoes - to see if that made a difference in my calves.
                In the first few minutes my shins hurt.
                and of course I could still feel my calves.
                I turned around before I reached the 1/2 way point.
                So I probably did about 4K in 34 minutes.
                I walked more this time.

                So it looks like I'll be wearing the Merrells on Sunday.



                It feels VERY freeing to be finished with my ESL AQ.
                A large weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
                Of course about 5 things I've been putting off are now waiting for my attention...

                    • Hi W'n'C! How are you going?

                      I just read the last couple of pages. I was diagnosed adrenally fatigued by my doc when I got my hypothyroid diagnosis. It's quite common for the adrenals to get burned out by making up for a shortfall in thyroid function. Unfortunately it seems from the research that I'm doing, that eating low carb causes your thyroid function to suffer and therefore your adrenals pump out adrenaline to keep you going and then they crap themselves eventually and you end up with adrenal fatigue.
                      I really have fallen out of love with low carb (and by low I mean anything under 150g a day) lately but I know that MDA is probably not the place to talk about it so I'll shut up now.

                      Congrats on finishing your ESL AQ!

                          How are you feeling now? How did you"fix" it?

                          I don't think I'm "low carb" (by MDA standards) I can't remember the last time I was in ketosis.
                          I simply like sweet potatoes and carrots and chocolate and... too much.
                          Of course I haven't tracked anything for months. Maybe I should, just to see where I am...

                            Lets see, after I ran, I did some much neglected house work.
                            Always fun. NOT.
                            After supper, we took the Butterflies over to the farm and they ran around exploring.
                            They both came back when I called! (That doesn't always happen)

                              My Farmer spent the day driving this 235 km at 17 mph!

                              He was helping my uncle, who is moving AND dealing with cancer treatments.

                              I went into London with my Daughter, sister and niece.
                              We spent the afternoon shopping and then after supper (BBQ chicken, veggies and wine) we went to a OHL (Jr hockey) game.
                              My niece skated at the JLC after the 1st period of the OHL playoff game.
                              We stayed for the game. I had a Palm Bay cooler and a couple handfuls of popcorn.
                              The Knights won. In overtime. We know one of the players. I used to coach him in soccer.
                              It was fun, I got home at 11pm with a headache and popcorn in my pants.

                              • I am running a 5 K tomorrow morning.
                                I'm not really ready for it.

                                But I made a kick-ass playlist to listen to while I attempt it
