    Got the appointment with the gyn for Saturday.

    Symptoms: Mild itchiness this morning. I think it will pass by this afternoon. This is more progress than I've seen in recent weeks, so I'm keeping the Candex up at 3 capsules 2x daily for now.

    Sleep: Slept like a rock and got to bed on time. It helped that Boyfriend went to bed with me. I did not make myself suffer by waking up at 6:30, since I didn't need to make lunch (leftover spaghetti squash and sauce, still).

    Food: My chicken curry was exactly what I wanted it to be, and Boyfriend liked it too. It was basically sweet, I didn't add anything that would have made it spicy. The longest part about it was the cauliflower mess and cutting up the chicken and veggies into reasonable sizes. Better knives would make cooking easier, I should sharpen ours, but they're too big to be practical. Anyway, the curry sauce soaked up in the cauliflower was really tasty. I think Boyfriend will have some of the leftovers today, so no more for me. I had an orange after work and the last frozen banana blended up after dinner. Still not sure what to do about my fruit. I am nearly out of eggs and ghee, I'm not sure I want to risk biking with eggs, but biking for a purpose is fun so maybe I will try tonight anyway.

    Mood/Brain: I feel good this morning! I didn't really feel like the Tyrosine helped yesterday, which was surprising. I think the lack of sleep negated any effect it might've had. Work gets out early today because everyone is going to the summer outing, but I did not sign up for it. I didn't want to go without Boyfriend, who has class tonight. There would've been free alcohol and awesome local ice cream, but since I'm doing the Whole30, that part of it wasn't worth it (also free batting cages and golf, but we went a few weeks ago with a friend so I also wasn't that interested). I have been feeling really irritated by little physical things lately, like my nails. They're not very long, but the sides are rubbing my fingers and it's just REALLY bothersome. I don't want to nibble at them because then they'll be ragged, but it's uncomfortable to type.

    Other: Still craving coffee, still avoiding it to give my gut more chances of being healthy. On a whim, I upped my VitD intake to 10k every other day, in the hopes that it will help speed along the candida overgrowth. Because I've finally been making progress on my own, I'm hesitant to go to this doctor's appointment now. If the symptoms are gone by Saturday and I stay low-carb for a few weeks with my supplementation as it is, then add in carbs veeeerrrry slowly, I think I might be able to conquer this. However, it would be good to have the Diflucan in case things go awry.

    I'm glad you're feeling good today. I wish your overgrowth would subside; I say that with all the love I can muster for such talk of feminine irregularities.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Hey, dudes can get them too, but it's not nearly as unpleasant.

    Really? But I don't eat bread, so I can't get a yeast infection.

    Updating my signature because I'm getting tired of constantly telling people I DO NOT WANT TO LOSE FAT.

    I think 135 lbs would be my ultimate goal. I've seen some fit paleo women at my height around that weight and I like the look. 10 lbs is just sort of an idea.

    I forgot to mention I totally failed at broomstick pull-ups last night. I don't know if the chairs aren't high enough or what it was, but I couldn't really do anything with it. I lifted my torso 10 times and it definitely worked my arms and back, but not my core. I couldn't get my legs straight. Maybe failing at an actual pull-up bar would be more successful than this. I'll try out the physical therapy elastics we have at least once this week, so I'm doing some pulling.

    I'm worried that my exercise progress will stall significantly while I cut carbs for the next couple of weeks. It may just be the sleep issues I've had this week, but I'm super tired today and worried I won't be able to even bike 5 miles, which would be about my average distance so far. I'm still only biking 2x weekly, but really want to find the motivation to move that up to 3x.

    How much are you cutting? Might have to suffer through a short carb flu.

    Going from 2-3 pieces of carbs (fruit and sweet potatoes) to either 1 piece or none (that's how it's been the past few days anyway). Yeah...probably is carb flu.


    2.26 to and from Trader Joe's. 20 min rest to unload groceries and eat a reheated hamburger patty. Then, the rest!

    Ramblings, Ravings and Rants.: Nesting…still??!

    Sleep: Woke up once during the night, felt restless. Wasn't on the computer much except to edit and upload some photos from the last month. Spent some time on the computer at home this morning because I was too groggy to do anything without risking injuring myself.

    Food: Minor cheat last night. I made ginger root tea (and looked up how to make pickled ginger, might try it, though I'm not sure if the sugar needed to make it means I should hold off on eating it till after the Whole30, or if that gets used up in the pickling process) and it was way too strong. Before I thought to water it down, I added some raw, local honey. THEN, I watered it down. I had the rest chilled this morning, which was really nice. I was really hungry last night, probably from biking, so I had leftover curry after I ate my dinner (asparagus, that went kind of bad even left out in water like you're supposed to, and tiny steak). No more fruit, the oranges went bad. I have leftover curry for lunch today, dinner might include bacon since I got some at the grocery store the other day. Also got some organic, free-range chicken drumsticks for lunches.

    Exercise: Biking (see above post) plus 30 kettlebell swings. It's been a while since I did any on their own. I'll have to work my way back up to 75. At that point, I wanted to go up in weight, but I'm not sure if it'd be more practical to invest in a second 15 lb kettlebell for dual-kettlebell exercises, or a single heavier one.

    Symptoms: Even less itching this morning, but I still really want those antibiotics. Now that the fruit is gone, I imagine this will go a bit faster.

    Mood/Brain: report after therapy. I really hope it doesn't rain!
