    Ugh, it's been a rough day. I have a bad cold for the first timein a long while, and I'm terribly sleepy but can't get to sleep for some reason. I have a thousand things to do, but don't feel like getting up off the couch. Gich.

    Thanks for quoting this, spammer! My, hasn't my attitude about veggies changed, lol. Maybe it's appropriate to feel this way in the summer, but this time of year, and with lots of organs ... bah humbug!

    I felt like I kept needing to eat more and more dinner tonight. Reacting to the sugar in the (whole, not canned) tomatoes, or anticipating a woosh overnight? I'm hoping for the latter!

    Organs, broth, ferments: raw goat liver, bit of broth at dinner

    - bloating = 3ishmo morning, but felt pressing outward. felt quite full as day wore on.
    - skin = still improved

    - will do garlic again tonight if I feel I need it. I used to be able to do it on an empty stomach, but can't now if I want to be sure I keep it down. The sides of my neck are sore along a line ... lymph? Okay, update ... by night, feels like cold is almost gone, go garlic!

    Health for life!!

    My daily journal format is a bit tedious, but it really does keep me focused on what I'm doing. I've tried so many different variations on primal, and this helps me remember what I'm trying, lol, and makes sure that as the days go by, I don't start getting careless, which appears to be even more important given these latest findings.

    Something to consider adding to my daily journal: paleo autoimmune protocol = no grains, dairy, nightshades, nuts, seeds, fruit, eggs, legumes. I can live for a month without eggs. I've done it for a few weeks before, anyway.

    A funny little thing I just noticed ... I have a tan. !!

    I have not been in the sun for months. I've never in my life had a tan in the winter. It's fairly faint, but absolutely there. Is it improved D status? Is it b/c I got more tan than ever before this year (b/c I don't burn as much now)? It's gotta be a great sign!

    GFCF?

    B - 4 eggs, 5.5oz sausage, 3T CO, raw goat liver

    D - chili (avoiding the beans, beans, corn, and tomato chunks, lol), one bite of cooked carrot b4 realizing it was heavily buttered, several "baby carrots."

    Results
    - energy /10, going down in the evening
    - bloating = 3ishmo morning,
    - skin = still much better
    - <<8hrs. Woke around 6? and couldn't get back to sleep after going to bed close to 1. I think I slept some more later, but didn't dream or don't remember it (very odd for me), so I'm not sure

    I started the salivary cortisol test (hope waking too early doesn't screw it up) and FORGOT AND STARTED EATING HALFWAY THROUGH I am SO mad at myself. I hope there is enough in the vial to make the test valid. I've been waiting fo this test for so long and needing the results so bad. GRRRRR.

    Felt full of venom this morning, which is always a great way to know I'm detoxing or something and not actually act on it or think somtehing's actually wrong. Feeling better now Yay.



    Bloating felt way down when I went to bed at midnight, but I didn't weigh or check. I had no proble with "not being able" to eat lots of the stuff at the party, even the GF cinnamon muffins I made! Yay!

    mama - not sure if your test is the same but my ZRT saliva test said if you mess up, simply rinse out with warm water and try again
