    Back to my usual self today Swam, taught yoga, biked, went to a gig, worked. Whoop!

    I'm getting worried about my hair though - it's noticeably thinner, and I'm still losing hair. So it's not the carbs.

    Remaining options:
    - Not enough iron
    - Bad shampoo? Seriously! Looking back, I changed my shampoo around the time I started shedding. I'm very sensitive to chemicals etc. so this could be a possibility...

    Swing your hands past your hips when you run. A lot of people run with T-Rex arms all bunched up under their arm pits, this reduces running efficiency by a large margin

    Oh and I liked your workout week schedule
    Haha... don't worry - I don't run like a girl It was a weird sensation - like my legs and arms had gotten longer, or more supple.

    Cheers! I would have preferred an extra day of lifting and swimming in there, but it was an easy week I guess.

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    over extending the hair via shampoo, blow drying, etc can damage it and cause it to prematurely fall out but won't stop it from growing back

    I would cut shampooing back a lot if you've been doing it frequently and get a good one without sls, parabens, etc or preferably go back to not shampooing it at all.

    now that I don't shampoo my hair and use water wash out pomade my hair actually doesn't even need pomade anymore and looks fanfuckingtastic

    feels that way too.
    Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.

    Hey yogabare, lots of interesting experiments you have going on! I would totally chart with you if I knew where my baseline was... I did a lot of research on this when trying to conceive back in 2010, and used cervical position to pinpoint ovulation. It's fascinating.. I agree it's good for any woman to do. I learned quite a lot about my body when I was charting.

    after the period, a woman will normally experience several “dry” days. The cervical fluid samples she takes with toilet tissue or a clean finger from just inside her vagina will not feel slippery or textured. Then the cervical fluid will build up, beginning with a moist sensation and/or a tacky or creamy texture. Any mucus or moist sensation at the vulva after the period signals that the fertile phase has begun.

    Around the time of ovulation, the woman’s cervical fluid tends to become slippery and clear—like raw egg white. The last day of this stretchy cervical fluid or wet sen- sation is called the peak day and signals that ovulation is imminent.

    The next day, a transition to dryer cervical fluid occurs: the woman’s cervical fluid might be tacky or immediately dry. Because ovulation can take place up to 2 days before or after the peak day— and the woman may ovulate more than one egg, with each egg liv- ing up to 24 hours—for the purpose of contraception the woman is considered fertile until the fourth day after the peak. For the remainder of the cycle, a healthy woman will secrete cervical fluid that is dryer than the peak day’s secretions.
    Aberrations from this pattern, like those of the BBT, can reveal imbalances in a woman’s overall health.

    Re cervical fluid, I had none to speak of even when I was ovulating. I couldn't find any answers, even on all the ttc/fertility forums. I figured it's a hormonal imbalance..

    Anyway, it's fascinating and hope you keep sharing your experience.

    I don't even shampoo that often - maybe 2/3 times a week. The no-poo thing was amazing and I definitely had a lot of new hair growth after doing it. But I don't know if I can do it again... My sense of smell has become so heightened that I don't think I could stand any smell of grease / egg etc

    Thanks for the support! What do you mean by baseline?

    I cannot believe I haven't done this before now. My mood and body are all over the place today, and from my research I can see that this is the time when oestrogen is rising! I'm even having a breakout of spots around my pituitary gland, and this is the time that FSH is produced. It's crazy stuff.
