I've been trying to do my version of an elimination diet and I started a week ago. Over the weekend I added back in some pasta, and it gave me heartburn. I never get heartburn, it wasn't even one of my issues that caused me to try this diet. Also, I went from 122 to 125 overnight. WTF? So, even though it wasn't the culprit I was looking for, I think I'mma leave it out of my diet on a more permanent basis. The only other thing so far that I've discovered I'm sensitive to is eggs. And that was a huge surprise because I always thought I tolerated eggs really well. But I immediately felt icky after eating one. This week, I'm going to try just the white, and then just the yolk to see if I can pinpoint it even more. I am really pretty worried that when I add cheese back into my diet I'll find out it's making me sick. I love cheese. Really, really love it. I'll be really sad if it causes me to feel sick.

Ugh, I feel sick. I ate way too many carbs today. It was all I ate basically. Brain fog, bloated, just awful feelings.

In response to a confession. OMG, yes! I have watched the Pioneer Woman exactly one time, and it was an episode when her husband was out of town and she was having some girl friends over. She went on an on about how she couldn't ever make these dishes when he was there because he didn't like them. I was like WTF?? Tell him to make his own damn food. Had to turn it off after that and never watched again.

In response to a confession. I’ve met them three times...once at a book signing, once at their store in Pawhuska, and once at The Lodge. I don’t think he’s a dick, but he sure jokes around with her a lot. They call each other ‘honey’ all the time, and to me they seem happy. But then I’ve been wrong before...

I am dreading the short days coming up. Although, it will be nice to have some sun when I'm driving to work. I hate this time of year so much. SAD is going to start kicking in pretty soon and it's depressing.

Anyone ever notice that the Pioneer Woman's husband is kind of a dick to her when she cooks him anything he doesn't absolutely love? I imagine he's kind of a dick to her most of the time too. Just my 2 cents but he has that vibe.

I saw my chiropractor the first time in a year and my posture is really terrible now with all the sitting I'm doing, not stretching after my runs, overall stress. She took a picture of my posture from the back and it was a humbling experience. My shoulders uneven and rounded, spine looks more curved. I have return to yoga and get more serious about doing weights.

In response to a confession. I'm plant based, but I eat a ton of fat - I sauté dinner in olive oil, and eat an avocado every day. But apparently healthy fats don't raise LDL like animal fats, except for coconut oil. So I started using that instead of olive oil, and it seemed to have worked! The energy thing is connected to low iron, but I really don't need more energy. But my doctor is saying I'm anemic, so I'm starting to look into what I can eat different. I am likely low in vitamin C (I have a strong dislike for sweet citrus), so I'm going to up my tomato and red pepper intake on my meals that are high in iron, and see if that helps me absorb the iron I am eating.

I work with a food pusher and it's really obnoxious. She is obese and I'm not; she constantly tells me she needs to "fatten me up" and that I need to "treat myself". Yeah....I try to tell her I'm careful with how I eat most of the time but that I appreciate her thought. She eats a lot of junk herself, so I think she just wants me to do it too to make her feel better about it.

In response to a confession. What is your diet like? I eat plant based whole foods about 90% of the time and my cholesterol numbers are something like HDL 78 and LDL 65 or something really low. My doctor thought it was a bit weird that my LDL was so low but she also said that when you don't eat a lot of fat (and I know I don't) you won't have as much LDL because your body prioritizes its use for other things. I don't think I've ever heard of cholesterol being connected to energy, but if you do eat very little fat and a lot of fiber, you may want to try to up your unsaturated fat intake to help make sure you are getting enough fat to make hormones, nerve coverings, etc. Good luck!
