    Hah! Despite all of my snarky comments, I really enjoyed the whole Real Food Con and I can't believe I listened to all of it, some of it twice. I hope Sean replays the thyroid presentation, although I took copious notes. Each group is only available for 24 hours for free. Sunday is replay day, I think he picks the most popular four or something like that. Virtually all of the presenters are clearly very intelligent and reasoned people, and it makes me happy that such people are working to get everyone to eat REAL FOOD.

    RE: the thyroid presentation. Although I just got a clean bill of health, I didn't have extensive thyroid testing and for some reason I am wondering about it. I guess because I feel it is underappreciated by everyone, including mainstream health providers. Orecchio says your temp on waking s/b > 97.4. I've taken my temp every day on waking (well, for me what passes as waking) and it has been 97.2 - 96.4. My resting pulse is in the low 50's. But this has always been so. I'm not going to run back to the doctor and ask for more tests, but I think I will keep an eye on this. I've always been on the 'low side' of everything - in fact when I was in school the nursing instructors used to borrow me for vitals. My blood pressure was routinely in the 90s with a low heart rate (frequently below 60) and temp in the 97s. They liked to test the students on someone who fell outside the norms. I used to think this was pretty cool but now I would rather just be normal. Not that it really makes any difference. But it surely won't hurt anything to follow some of her recommendations for diet. I have bought some dulce and am enjoying putting it on everything, and the epsom salt foot bath is really nice also.

    Well, my beef stock is a bust - what a disappointment! It is not gelatinous at all, it is watery and tasteless. Tried to make egg drop soup this morning and it was horrible, despite boiling down the stock. Maybe I need to cook it at a higher temp? I had it on low, which is what the manufacturer recommends. Will try something different next time.

    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.

    My friend gets really bad migraines, along with: joint pain, dizziness after intense exercise, and bad period pains. She's only 16, and very slim. Her diet is mostly pasta and sandwiches. Her doctors don't know what's wrong with her joints, apparently. I've told her about gluten intolerance and asked her to try 30 days without bread/pasta, to ease some pain; she says she doesn't want to. I'm sure shed be much better if she ate more protein, fat, and fruit; but I can't force her. :/
