Hmmm! That's pretty interesting that cutting the am cortisol back led to a temp increase. Do you feel anything when you take the cortisol, like a surge of energy or anything?
Those poached eggs sound great! I could live on eggs, but after repeatedly trying (and hoping for a different result) to eat them regularly, I admitted to myself that I have an issue with them. I'm going to try them in some coconut mug bread or something like that to see if I do any better with them that way. I absolutely LOVE fried eggs with runny yolks and could eat them every day for the rest of my life. Those poaching cups sound great for a quick, easy breakfast.
As far as those magazines go, I totally agree with you and I quit buying them long ago, despite great workout idea in some, because I was already worried about my daughter boarding the rollercoaster so many of us are on and have been for years. Like you said, too - I'd rather have the strong, athletic, CAPABLE body than the super thin one. Those girls could be snapped like twigs!
How has your energy level been lately? I keep meaning to ask if you've still been having potatoes/starches regularly. Are you still going with the same exercise regimen? I am just full of questions!
Also....I forget if we discussed this or not whether in PMs or in your journal, but do you take iodine or eat seaweed? I know that some are against Hashi's pts taking it, but apparently there are many who do with no negative issues. I have experimented with it (since receiving the lab results that I had no antibodies) and I cannot believe how much better I feel when I am using it regularly, and I use a very small amount - about 225 mcg. It just amazes me what it does for my energy level, cool toes, etc.
I finally responded to your last email a couple of days ago - hope you got it. Hope to see more pics of Joey soon!
