Notes:  This week I've been either sick or having bad allergies.  The weather has been a bit weird here in central AZ - dry, wet, cold, warm in a very short period of time.  My body doesn't like such quick weather changes.  And, with all the extra energy I've been having since I went low sugar and no grains/starches, I've been packing my schedule and probably overloaded myself.

I am surprised that I'm under the weather since Tuesday with lots of congestion and now it's turned into a mucousy cough.  Been outdoors a lot and less rest than I'd like as this week (Thurs/Fri) I had all day field trips with both my kids' grades.  Had to modify my eating some but still basically stayed on track.  Only doing ONE Spartacus workout this week, so that probably made a big difference.

My body could also be starting to detox, too.  I've been having regular bowel movements of 2-3x/day.  The probiotics has pretty much eliminated gassiness and helping my digestive system work much better.  I am taking good multi-vitamins with extra iron, as I tend to be a bit anemic.  Also taking Ca/Mg/Z capsules, which helps my sleep and my blood pressure.  Had been taking these in the morning, but switched to the evening.  I take 3-4 EFA (fish oil) capsules/day.  That helps my blood pressure, too.

Getting good sleep every night helps my blood sugar levels, as well as helps to balance out my hormones.  My goal each night is to get to bed before 11 pm, but usually I'm in bed by 10 pm, which will often allow me close to 8 hrs of sleep/night.  During menstruation, I did not give my body the extra rest it needed, which would be more than 8 hrs of sleep, which I think brought my immune system down.

Though salt does not seem to be a factor in my blood pressure, I do think it's a thing in water retention.  I've gained 5.1 lbs in 3 weeks in LBM, which I think is very little muscle, rather water weight.  So, after I'm better, I'll do a thing to help me drop water weight and see how that goes, maybe in 2-3 wks.
