    I lied, in my blog. My hands are aching today. I think it might have been something from the maki rolls last night.

    I read something about Vitamin B12 deficiency and that it can sometimes present as tingling or numbness in fingers and toes. I wonder if that's what's going on with my toes? I have some liquid B12 I can try supplementing for a little while. My toes were itchy when I woke up again this morning. This wasn't an issue for months, but has been bothering me for more than a week now. I can't think of anything in my diet that has changed aside from removing gluten, but this started before I cut out gluten again. I am eating dairy infrequently and haven't noticed a correlation with that.

    I wore a necklace (that I've worn before with no issues) on Saturday. On Sunday, I woke up with a rash on my neck where the chain would have sat. It's still a little irritated, but going away. Weird. My mom has a nickel allergy, but I've never had problems with jewelry before.

    BTW, liquid vitex tastes awful.

    allergies to things can pop up for no apparent reason. I wore gold rings for 30 years before I became allergic to gold - I developed a burning/itchiness under my wedding ring and had to stop wearing it. Now I can wear it for a few days and then have to stop again for a few weeks. Very weird............

    In 2000 I was going to skip my annual well woman exam. Something told me I should go ahead and have it done. While doing the vaginal exam the doctor says, "oh wow........ I have never seen anything grow this fast - you're last exam was totally normal!" When I asked her what it was she told me I had white spots all over my cervix. She rushed a biopsy and I had SEVERE cervical dysplasia - had I missed that yearly exam I would most likely not be sitting here cautioning you to not skip yours. She told me had I waited another year for my exam I would probably be at stage 4 cervical cancer. I had to have a cone biopsy to remove all the pre-cancerous cells. I have been fine since.

    Don't mess around with that stuff. Teeth cleaning can wait........ in fact buy Rembrandt whitening tooth paste and you won't need cleanings - it takes off all the tartar. But yearly exam and mammograms are not something to poo-poo off. If you haven't had a mammogram yet - you should think about having a baseline done soon.

    That's my 2 cents!
    I had mild cervical dysplasia. Never got tested for HPV but was told that HPV is the cause of CD. They got all of my bad cells through a colposcopy and I've checked out clear every year since. My sister had to have a colposcopy and a LEEP - through the leep procedure, she lost roughly 1/4 of her cervix, which produced problems when she was delivering her son (scar tissue prevented dilation).

    With the new health insurance laws, I believe well-women checks are now 100% covered by insurance. Mammograms too, but it's standard practice for a woman to not need a mammogram (unless there are extenuating circumstances like extensive family history, lump discovered during exam, etc) until after the age of 40.

    I think you should get the exam - that being said, I need to schedule my own as well.

    Gluten-free day...7?

    I think by the end of today, I'll be gluten-free for 7 days! Doing well.

    Nameless Wonders: Missing Popham Beach
    Poem-ish thing I wrote yesterday. I miss my family's vacations in Maine. Hulky's family never took vacations and the two of us have taken many trips since being together. I'm glad travelling is a thing for us.

    Sleep
    -With 150 mg of 5-HTP and 1 tablet of Theanine Serene, I slept like a rock. We stayed up a little late so that is probably why I was tired this morning. With 100 mg of 5-HTP and 2 tablets of Theanine Serene, I sleep soundly, but still wake up during the night. With 150 mg of 5-HTP and nothing else, I sleep well. This is going to take some finagling.

    Body
    -No cycling today, it's rainy. Not sure if I'll be able to tomorrow either.
    -My toes weren't itchy this morning! I took some vitamin B12 after work yesterday and this morning.

    Food (yest.)
    -Peppermint tea w/ hydrolyzed collagen
    -Ground beef w/ onion, green pepper, and rice mixture; apple, banana
    -pork chop, broc, oven fries (kept the fries light on my plate, more broc, and reversed that on Hulky's; the chop came out EXCELLENT because it's warm enough out to get it to a reasonable room temp before pan frying)
    -Smoothie w/ almond butter, plain rice milk, bunch of fresh blueberries, banana, bit of cocoa powder, ice
    -chocolate coated halvah bar (mmmmm so good), half a bar of chocolate (with some pepper and citrus in it, also very good)

    I made a sweets/snack run when I went to get more ground pet food for Fae. I got Hulky some organic gummy snacks . He said it was a nice surprise and he loved them. I have more chocolate in the freezer, whoo.

    The honeymoon phase is great . I can't wait until we take our actual honeymoon!

    Question of the Day: I want to drink this weekend at the lakehouse. I was going to ask what I should get that might be minimally bloating, but probably anything will have adverse effects for me. I think I'll bring up some Corona (and lime, of course) and some cheap vodka, carton of coconut milk, & knock-off Kahlua for a White Russian. I've never tried dairy-free milk in one before, but according to Google, it's a "vegan" substitute . And I'll probably do some shots.

    Oh, dudes! I forgot to tell you! I lifted something near 50 lbs yesterday! We still had the 1/2 keg on the dining room floor from the engagement party. I had no idea how much was left, but when FIL stopped by last week, he moved it off the table and told me it was probably about 50 lbs. I squatted, braced my arms, and lifted with my legs. I had to keep it on my hips to keep the weight on my lower body and walked it over to the counter (to empty it). I had to use my arms a little more, but made sure to involve my core & hips in getting it onto the high counter-top so I didn't hurt anything. Not sore at all from the endeavor and wishing I had more heavy things to move!

    I guess I'm a lot closer to my "lift 50 lbs" goal than I thought.

    Note to self: make gluten-free pancakes ahead of time to freeze & bring up this weekend.

    So you've been married a little over a week now --- feel any different?

    Congrats on the weight accomplishment! Next time you're at the grocery store try picking up a 50# bag of dog food! We have a wood pellet stove and the bags are 40# so I get my daily workout of lifting at least one 40# bag every day from October - May. Pitch it up over my shoulder and carry it about 60 feet from the garage to the stove. Then I have to put it down, cut the top - lift it up again to pour it into the hopper. That's my heavy lifting............ In the summer --- I have to lift my dog in and out of the boat - he's 55#.

    60 lb is my lift and carry limit. I'm trying to build that up to body weight, with current subgoal of 75 lb.
    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!"
