  • Breakfast was a spinach frittata (2 eggs, 1 c frozen spinach, grease left in the pan + 1 tbsp butter.)
    Lunch is at my desk. Tilapia and green beans smothered in chile.
    I'm breaking out, as in multiple zits at one time. I NEVER get zits, not even as a teenager. I'm hoping this is my body clearing toxins and not an allergy signifier.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    • I know I said I went through something similar to this a week and a half ago in the EMF thread, but when do you go to the chiro again? Maybe bring this up to him and see what he has to say.

      • At the moment, it's not visible (except one up by my hairline.) I'm not horribly concerned about it, as it seems to be vanishing relatively quickly for me.
        I do have Geek intrigued by the naturalist idea, though. Mostly because it seems to be helping my allergies, but because it seems to be helping a myriad of other things. I think if I CAN actually get my allergies to go away and lower my levothyroxine dose on this, I might be able to convince him to go into the naturalist about his allergies.
        Last night I noticed that vegging in the whirlpool for more than a few minutes while hungry is not my friend. I damn near passed out (felt like low blood pressure, not low blood sugar) in the changing room after I got out. Looking back, I think it was the change in ambient temperature, humidity, and standing up that did it.

        • I may look for a naturopath once I have a job that offers insurance. My chiro isn't one so I think going that route would be good for me, especially for allergies and asthma. If you're having that much success with it, I would hope I would as well.

          • I don't like hot tubs. I get light-headed very quickly. My ankles also swell easily in heat.

              • I've never had any issues with swelling ankles or anything else of the like. Even through my 3 pregnancies and being over 200 pounds with all three of them.

                • Debating on what kind of workout I want to do tonight. I'm thinking either walking and sprints or body weight stuff.

                  • I'm furious with the dog. At some point in the last 36 hours, she ripped out the bottom screen on the patio door. Didn't rip it, ripped it out. She has been disciplined on that before. She recieved the same discipline as before. I don't care how fucking windy it is, you don't hafta have a fucking doggy door on a door that you know how to open! I wanted to choke the little shit for a second.
                    Oddly enough, I can/ could feel some of the adrenal response associated with it. The shake, the heart rate, the flash of fight or flight. I'm still trying to drop my stress level from it back down to what passes for normal.

                    • Picked up Geek last night from the airport. We ate crockpot roast chix, chile ( can you tell his mom sent a container home with us?) and caesar salads.
                      Got all of 5 hours of sleep last night. Too much tossing and turning. Love Field didn't get his bag transferred, so he didn't have his pillow, so I kept getting used as a pillow. I kept waking up with a sore back because of that or trying to change positions and having him grumpily wrap his arms around me so I couldn't move. I'll sleep better tonight.
                      Not hungry yet this morning. I'll do roll ups if I can't think of anything.

                      • I'm glad Geek is back, pillow usage aside. Have a good day and good luck on more sleep tonight!

                        • From a relative high last week of 130.8 to a EMF/ adrenal fatigue protocol (AFP) low of 126.4. Considering I'm generally not eating below what I need calorically, something's going right.

                          • Nice. How is the adrenal thing going? Feeling any improvement or is it too early to tell?

                            • FiancÚ and I have that issue with pillow usage. We take turns. Sometimes my chest is his pillow (little pillows that they be) and sometimes his pecs are mine. I usually don't sleep well like that. And he tends to try and pin me when I'm thrashing around too much for his liking, which wakes me right up. Sigh!

                              • CAnio, I can tell some changes on the whole adrenal fatigue. I've been breathing more easily, with less air hunger (most likely due to cutting the sugar again.) What little sleep I have been getting has been more productive. I can tell when I'm under stress because I can feel my body at least trying to created the "fight or flight" rush, which is more than I've had in years. I'm losing weight, although whether that's EMF or AFP, I have no clue. I seem not to need caffeine anymore, even on my crappy days. I don't always want a nap on my way home from work.
