    - 100% primal diet yes
    - <50g carb per day, GAPS (no grains, sugar, legumes, lactose, or starches) yes

    Morning
    D (5000IU) - 22,000IU to catch up
    B complex - yes
    HCl (600mg/meal) - yes. No issues. so once again I'm deficient.
    CO -3T
    Dig Enz - Digest Gold & 1tsp Swedish bitters before bkfst & dinner
    Feverfew - yes
    Probiotic (1NT) - ?
    DHEA - holding off ... maybe I should try again to get me to sleep?
    Organs, broth, ferments: thyrogold;

    Midday
    15m sun - no, rainy
    Selenium (200mg) - yes
    Vit C (to BT till I know how much it takes on a normal day, then switch to acerola to find the same thing) - 2g
    ACV - 1T
    Green tea - 2C
    Salt and/or potassium - forgot

    Glutathione - 1cap milk thistle w/ bkfst & dinner, NAC 1800mg
    Zinc (for NAC) - 50mg
    Mg (400mg) - 800mg
    Liver support -

    Foods that make me feel bad (FODMAPs, nightshades, coconut flesh) -
    Cold -

    B - ssg. :P pernil

    D - pork chop, chicken & goat (with trace curry, raisin, olive, rice, green bean, caper). Let's see how I bloat. Got my meats thawed for tomorrow.

    Results
    - energy 4/10; mood 5/10.
    - bloating - 4mo morning, 5? tonight
    - skin = upper arms still bumpy; other skin still fabulous. Armsa little better at night
    - Slept 11:20-8:15, still very sleepy. Taking a nap at 2pm. Nope. Lay down for 2hrs and was sleepy as heck, but couldn't sleep.
    - wrist down again

    I'm going to go thaw a bunch of (no-sugar, no-cayenne) sausages and pork chops so I can have lots of it for every bkfst & dinner. I just keep running out of either meat, or ability to wait for meat that doesn't have sugar or nightshades or fodmaps in it. Gotta plan.

    I'm also going to go back to 65g each morning for a while to see if I can make my breakfast last till 6 again. If not, I'm adding lunch back in. I suspect I'm missing out on some nutrients because of my very limited diet, but I just don't know what else to do until I can get a baseline flat stomach that I can then add back and know exactly what is causing this bloating. I do think the cayenne is contributing. I can't wait to get eggs & butter back in.

    Gah!! I am having that problem too, with planning!! I gotta plan better, I am tired of eggs every morning and left over meat from the night before.

    :/ Other than that it is going well and I am eating 3 meals a day but I go pretty long hours between without snacking. No weight loss yet but I know it will come...at least I am not gaining and not feeling bloated anymore. I am up early with the kids like 6-6:30 so my early breakfast is the reason, why I end up eating a lunch. I eat lunch about 3pm though and then not hungry for dinner.

    - slept 10:30 - 7:30 when dd woke me

    Went to a banquet & a Mother's Day dinner (buffet in an old Southern inn). Ate nothing at the first thing, even though I paid for the meal, b/c it was lunch time and I wasn't hungry (knew beore going there'd be nothing for me to eat there, just salad & chicken). Ate very little other than meat at the second, just enough salad & veggies to keep people from asking questions and getting bothered by my diet. I decided that if asked why wasn't I having dessert, or biscuits or hushpuppies or corn muffins or breaded apples or breaded chicken or breaded shrimp or breaded oysters or breaded anything else, my answer would be, "I'm just done with eating things that don't make me feel good."

    Cold - 10m @ 55F air in 50F river

    B - ~2.5 fat pork chops

    - skin = upper arms still bumpy; other skin still fabulous.
    - In bed 10:30, but followed recent pattern of sleeping, then waking a while later and unable to get to sleep again. Spinning mind & RLS, but no cramps or morning de-bloating. Slept solidly from 12-9:30. Sleepy most of the day.

    ************************************************** **************************************
    Today's CT was 10m (because I had to go somewhere) in 50F river in 55F weather while it was pouring down rain.

    Amazing things
    - I didn't even consider not going because of the cold air. I think my subconscious realizes that I will be warm no matter the air temp now.
    - I WAS warm. It took about 5m this time, but then I could have stayed in forever. And the air when I got out didn't feel cold in the slightest. It was a downpour by this time and I just felt like freaking Superwoman.
    - I went to a banquet this weekend and saw the two ladies in front of me in the tea line had goosebumps on their arms. My arms were also bare and I wasn't cold at all. Went to a restaurant that night and others were complaining about the AC. I wasn't cold at all.
    - Kids & hubby went swimming in the lake yesterday and while the air was cooler than we ever swim in (75 or less), they were fine.

    - energy 6/10; mood 7/10. Had two big stupid things happen this morning and let them roll off. LOVE to have that feeling again! This is ME!!!
    - bloating - 3mo morning, and feeling so much better! Stomach still tender to touch (has been for over a week), still somewhat bloated, but energy & mood are high this morning!
    - skin = upper arms still bumpy; other skin even silkier than before, including elbows!
    - Went to bed at 10:30, once again fell asleep quickly but woke soon after and got more and more awake. Mind got spinnier, legs got more restless, some very small cramps started. I had a mental picture suddenly of toxins leaving my fat or gut and circulating around as the cause, and decided, instead of getting mad at the waking, to be glad to let them go. GOOD RIDDANCE! In the morning, after sleeping 12-8:30, less bloated and feeling GREAT!!!!

    I felt GREAT today. I went out and worked in the yard and really enjoyed it. First time I could do that since one random day last summer. I pray this will last - I do think it will, as it's capping off a general pattern, and not just popping up randomly.

    So, after 6 years of declining energy and thus, declining success in taking care of my home's interior & exterior, that energy has begun increasing in the last two months. I just recently made a detailed plan for taking care of a different portion of the house, 30m at a time, across the next few months. I just started implementing the yard part yesterday.

    And ironically, today I got a letter from the Barney Fife HOA demanding I get rid of every last weed in my yard in the next 10 days or else.

    LOL. I called the anonymous complainer a coward for not talking to me about it to my face, told them I had been ill for several years and was just recovering and had therefore just begun to take care of the problems, that weeding, mulching, etc., are ongoing as I regain my health & strength, and that "Impatient people who offer complaints instead of help will have to wait."

    I heard Neal Boortz say something amazing on the radio today. He's a seriously libertarian, but in the past, seriously conventional when it comes to health & lifestyle, talk show host. He was talking about his father's bout with Alzheimer's, and his own genetic tests showing he had the marker, and his personal determination to do whatever it would take to avoid it.

    I was banging my head on the steering wheel, knowing he'd never get it, when lo! and behold! he said that he found a doctor in his vacation hometown (Naples, FL - Dr. perlmutter?) who was a top Alzheimer's prevention doc, and who put him on supplements and such. Then, last fall, the doc called him into the office, said that one school of thought calls Alzheimer's Type III Diabetes, said that Boortz was at high risk with his weight & diet, and that he needed to go straight to the bookstore and get a book called ... I was waiting for some Ornish or China Study book ...

    WHEAT BELLY

    Well, Praise God!! I was dancing by now.

    Then Boortz goes on to say that the doc told him he had to go gluten-free, and that "Two slices of whole wheat toast have more sugar in them than a candy bar." WOOHOO what a glorious day for the truth! He said he's gotten lots of calls from listeners who say they've lost so much weight since dropping, but while he's lost weight, he said his biggest gains are

    - mental sharpness unlike he's never had before
    - end to sporadic bouts of annoying depression he'd had in recent years
    - great overall health

    WOOHOO!!

    He continued to say that everyone needs to read Wheat Belly, b/c the wheat they're getting in the store is not what our pioneer forefathers were planting; it's been hybridized for all kinds of attributes and is physically completely different and does incredible physical damage.

    It was amazing to hear this from someone who has millions of listeners at that hour. He said that he knew that some people would think he was wasting his time with the last 15 minutes, but that he knew that thousands of people would end up healthier because of what he said, and that, for him, was worth the time.

    He also said he's re-tweeting stuff from Dr. Davis & Dr. Perlmutter, and also recommends Primal Body, Primal Mind (YES!!!) and the Paleo Solution (YES!!!).

    Go, NEAL!!!! He is the only kind of figure that a lot of people, especially a lot of men like my father, would bother hearing that message from. Go, NEAL!!!

    The wheat industry is going to go ballistic now. It's going to be the new HFCS. Expect "wheat surprise" commercials to try to go viral on YouTube soon!
