    Hey! Did you ever find out for sure what's wrong with the car? Brad says if you have to have it towed, it's a head gasket not header gaskets.

    Yeah, gasket for cylinder head, I guess. Not that difficult to replace, but a bit time consuming because of the parts that need to be (re)moved to get to it. I also bought new head bolts and a thermostat, at Boyfriend's dad suggestion (and cause a walk-through guide on how to replace the gasket recommended new bolts just in case).

    Grain-free pumpkin muffins. I used butter because the recipe said the flavor would be better (than my refined coconut oil).

    They were moist and delicious. I really want to eat them all, but that's a lot of fiber in one meal. Then again, they were a "test" batch...

    Phew, it's been some time since we had spam this bad.

    Sleep: This is possibly the 3rd week now that I haven't been able to get up as easily in the morning. I was on time with my evening supplements and in bed just after 10:30, so I am not sure what's going on with that. I ended up sleeping in till about 7 and not having much of an appetite, which will be problematic later.

    Food: I ended up eating the rest of the muffins yesterday. Probably way too much fiber than I should be eating in one go! I think I could handle having a treat like that on weekdays, because my meals are "pre-defined" and I don't forage. Saturday night, we went to a friend's belated graduation party. The food was excellent and there was even some gluten-free stuff (his mom apparently knows that I'm gluten-free so she told me what was definitely "safe", I was surprised when I told her it's not an allergy and she said, "Oh you just feel better when you don't eat it?"...why yes!). I was stuffed at the end of the night (after having a couple servings of gluten-free cake, chocolate mousse with real whipped cream, and coconut balls, after dinner of course) and it reminded me once again that I generally don't eat enough. Maybe it was the muffins, or maybe it was the excess (or type?) of food, but I ended up having some unpleasant bathroom trips this weekend.

    I'm excited for Thanksgiving next week. I probably will wait until Monday or Tuesday to get my side-dish ingredients. I will either prep it Wednesday or Thursday, in the morning, and cook it at Baba's when we get there. I just don't want the brussel sprouts to wilt, and I also don't want to get stuck in ridiculous holiday shopping (I'm sure the grocery stores will be nuts next week). I didn't do any major grocery shopping this weekend, so that means I don't have anything in the slow cooker today. I did pick up some yogurt last night and had a bit for breakfast this morning (with a mug of bone broth). I also got a bottle of digestive enzymes. It's low in lactase, but I figured I'd give it a shot along with the yogurt to see how that goes. So far, so good, aside from some gurgling.

    Mood/brain: Doing okay-ish. I think it was Friday night that I was having a really bad time and Boyfriend got home and I basically acted out a scene in a YA novel (falling into his arms crying). I felt pretty pathetic, but he took care of me and we went out and saw Skyfall. Probably won't splurge on anymore films in theaters this month (doesn't look like anything is coming out that we'd want to see anyway). The rest of the weekend was fine aside from some boredom. We actually spent time together chatting and then going out to that party, which felt really good after being lonely for most of the week. We're up to season 7 in Supernatural now.

    Supplements: I can't really put my finger on it, but I feel like I should try reducing my 5-HTP dose by 50mg. Maybe my sleep issues are from too high of a dose. Or maybe it's just the sugar that I've been consuming. It's not always refined sugar, sometimes it's just high carb and low protein (but probably still fairly high fat), but that's probably not good. I don't really know where to start because I'm pretty tired of having to regulate my diet (beyond sticking to Primal).

    Other: I'm still taking the car to work, despite absurdly warm temps today. It's a waste of gas, but I'm paying for it and I would rather feel totally comfortable right now. I have a Vitacost order expected Wednesday (Pau D'Arco & oil of oregano), and the car parts are estimated for delivery tomorrow! If we can sort out the towing...I wonder if we could work on the car this weekend. One step at a time: I'll discuss it with Boyfriend once the parts arrive, then we'll talk to his dad.

    Hm. If I never get around to making applesauce this Winter (I still really really want to. I just suck), maybe I can just make my family some grain-free gingerbread cookies. I would need to get blanched almond flour and palm shortening, but probably have everything else I'd need.

    Edit: Just to note, I am down to 2 tsp of Vitamin C at each dose (~4.3g). That's only down by 1/4 tsp, but it's a change, at least.

    Has 5htp ever made you sleepless? I was falling asleep in my chair last night at 7:30pm. So I got ready for be, took my evening supps (100mg 5htp, GABA and 400mg magnesium) and went to bed. I lay there tossing and turning for 2-3 hours until I finally fell asleep. Any thoughts?

    No, it usually has the opposite effect for me. If I don't take it spaced out, though, it doesn't seem to work as well (for falling asleep and then waking up not groggy). I take half of the dose at dinner and half about an hour before bed.
