    Yeah got off my lazy butt and began journaling... Thanks on the looking good!

    Went out to the chiropractor today - b/c I've been dealing w/a low grade migraine since monday.. its just kinda there...on the way back to work I needed to get some gas. While getting gas I ran into a GLAMOUR FASHION DON'T! White sweatpants + Pink underwear + pregnancy = DO NOT TRY AT HOME OR IN PUBLIC outfit combination... I wanted to say something but the woman looked so miserable I figured she just didn't care any more (I remember that feeling w/ds - especially when I was on bedrest!)

    so I'm still craving WHOLE CREAM... so I ran out to whole foods and picked up some clam chowder to accompany my smoked oysters and apple for lunch... I pretty much drank the cream, and picked out and ate the clams/bacon...left the potatoes to sit... I have NFC what's w/this craving...its so bizarre!!!

      So I just heard back from the Endo at the VA... all my standard Cortisol tests are *NORMAL*... so I asked them what's next - can we look at my thyroid etc??? I got the cookie cutter response of your T4 and TSH are normal... its the *Gold Standard* for thyoid testing... y our thyroid is normal... why don't you just put the doughnut down and exercise???? or you could just be happy w/being obese WTF??? VA Endo is now fired, I told them uh...thanks for you time... you were a total waste of time... appreciate it..

      Now to figure out if I'm gonna make a trip to see Dr Kruse or if I'll try the Holtorf group now that they have a Philly office (and that's only 2hrs away - basically a day trip!)

      I've got to check the lowcarb docs, and paleo docs to see if I can find someone in the DC Metro area...

        SO I came into this after my 2nd pregnancy late last October... frustrated b/c I wasn't having any luck loosing weight... so I figured why not...

        So here's a pic of me last year [ATTACH]4850[/ATTACH]

        and here's where I'm at today
        [ATTACH]4851[/ATTACH]

        I've still got some work to do...but progress is being made!

        I'm finishing up the Leptin REset... I'm working on cortisol issues at the same time and I've finally seen some forward progress and I'm trying to get my workout groove back LHT and HIITs... I'm finally back down to my pre-pregnancy weight of 2 kids ago! YEAH! and in the past month I've lost an 1" off my hips and an 1" off my chest! Seems like my belly will be the last thing to go...

        Today's kinda of crazy... slogging through the day w/a migraine...and getting together w/some girlfriends I haven't seen in several years!! Dinner tonight is Brisket, Salad and sweet
        potatoes...

                At least you let people take pictures of you. I still have trouble with that. I just really don't like looking at myself in pictures.

                In regards to the heavy cream cravings, I've had that a couple of times since going primal. I think I may try to make a brocolli cheese soup with heavy cream this weekend. That sounds good.

                  as for the pictures... how do you say no to a 3yo who just wants to take mommy's picture... I can't disappoint her...

                  As for the cream cravings... I wonder what I'm missing nutrition wise

                  BTW my lunch was perfect but I was so effin hungry I was a cranky Bitch while I was getting dinner ready...almost like I was crashing off of sugar...

                  dinner was eggsalad over mixed greens and left over brisket... and some yogurt yum I was still hungry when I was done w/dinner but I sucked it up....

                  I'm finally winding down and I'm thinking I'm going to get in bed early tonight!

                    off to a good start this morning...even thought the boy was up and wanted to play last night (he could have been sleep crawling - his big sister sleep walks) ... I eventually got him to sleep w/o nursing him! Whoot no drama either!

                    got up just after 545 or so...took the dog for a walk... got back home, got the kids up, while DH showered...handed off the kid to dh then I took a shower and got ready.

                    I had an egg cup (3eggs, sausage, tomato, spinach & a bit of cheese) and a chicken mango sausage from TJoes and some decaff coffee w/some coconut "Crack" creamer... I didn't eat my BAB w/in 30 min... its hard to do in the am on weekdays - but at least I had some premade bkfst tidbits...that are yummy

                    I feel really good after last nights work out... I forgot to mention at the conclusion of my w/o I did some kettle bell swings w/a 25lb weight... felt good too... my next piece of equipment I want to get is this: Dip Bar, Dip Stand, Dip Station, Dip Machine

                        Had a meeting to dh and a financial planner to go over our life insurance needs etc... and they guy got called out of town on a family emergency (bummer for him) and forgot to call me to reschedule...oh well... I got to have lunch w/dh BY OURSELVES W/O KIDDOS!!! We went to ruby tuesdays - I had 2 mini burgers (no bun) and the salad bar... very good meal

                        Wondering what the rest of the day will bring... got to sit down and work on reviewing a few things for my next meeting...
