    Breakfast turned out to be a fried egg on a bed of leafy greens with evoo and balsamic vinegar, one of my favorite meals for some odd reason.

    Didn't go swimming this morning, not sure why not. I need to move around because the opera is this afternoon and too much sitting is not good.

    Funny Siobhan, I have always had a low waking temp and my pulse rate has always been pretty low and my bp has also usually been pretty low. I never associated it with thyroid issues and even now the basic thyroid screening the doc did showed that my thyroid is fine. However, he believes my symptoms are thyroid and adrenal related so is treating it as if I have thyroid issues. I do hope they replay the thyroid talk as I would love to hear it...

    Take a nice walk instead of your swim and breathe deep of the air that is chlorine free and enjoy your opera this afternoon! Sounds lovely, I hope the opera is really good!

    Ended up working until midnight due to a coworkers illness. She gets migraines. Am dying to talk to her about giving up grains but of course I can't.

    The final day of Real Food Con was pretty spectacular! Nora Gedgaudas is brilliant. Listened to her talk twice.

    Here are the encores: Real Food Con Event | Real Food Con. And yes, the thyroid talk is there. Must listen again and take even more copious notes. My HR was in the mid-60's this morning and temp was 97.6, woot! Did that have something to do with my going to sleep at 1:30 AM and waking at 9:30 AM?

    Put some highlights in my hair and am very pleased with the result. Cost: $10.

    That is one of the things Nora G. talked about in her presentation. She had a patient with all sorts of troubles, and when she spoke frankly to her about her diet, the woman went ballistic, totally denying that diet had anything to do with her problems. You know, I loved bread and pasta as much as anyone...now I love other things more.

    Went to see Hamlet with two friends. It was terrific. Loved it! I wish I could see it again.

    Got a big bag of par-cooked organic root veg from a local farm. Turnips, carrots, rutabagas. I roasted them for awhile with spices, then made a sort of hash with chicken and poached an egg in it. Turned out very well to my surprise.

    It was painful, but I discarded the beef broth. It just didn't taste good and it was not even slightly gelatinous. Perhaps I need a higher temp to extract the good stuff from those big beef bones? I will try it next time. And tonight I am putting some chicken bones in the crockpot.

    Have got no exercise today or yesterday!

    I've done some beef and bison stock that was pretty meh for flavour. It got better once reduced and seasoned. But still sort of meh. Not sure why some batches turn out that way. I've been powering through my turkey broth, so time to throw in some beef bones in the pressure cooker this week. I do find that when I take the time to roast the bones first, it does taste nicer, but it only happens less than half the time for me.

    It's funny, my chicken and turkey stock always turns out well. Don't know why the beef stock is meh. Maybe I should mix up the bones? I seriously think regular consumption of bone broth is the single best thing I have done or can continue to do for my health. I always think about roasting the bones, but does it get done? No.

    Slept well and woke up with a temp of 96.2 and a HR of 50. What's up with that? I need to stop taking my vitals, I'm borrowing trouble.

    All the chores are done today and I am off to the pool, where hopefully I will have a nice swim and nothing weird will happen. I am working tonight and also hoping for no weirdness there either. Just not wanting any weirdness is my goal recently.

    For breakfast had the last of my good bone broth, an egg yolk, and coconut oil. The new batch will be ready later today.

    Woke up with a slight headache which is still with me.
