Ache/pain in my right leg and slight ache in pelvis
Am wondering whether it is sugar consumption that made the ache worse since it is inflammatory and I had the wedding cake earlier
Need to update pics in my log
I did take pics last weekend and I looked awful, really bad dark blue skin under eyes, rest of skin was very sallow. I think I need to make sure I am eating foods wth more iron

I've got on top of my sleeping now, but need to think about types of exercise and also sunlight/Vit D. Not sure that I can get that much here at the moment but I need to research it a bit more.
Also my EPO has run out, and I have done a bit of research and Borage oil is apparently better, so not going to buy any more EPO. Would really like to try zinc first though.

Hi guys - Monday's Log -

Food/Supps
Breakfast - 1 egg fried in sunflower oil with fat croutons, table salt and ground black pepper, 1 cup of red tea, 1 apple
Lunch - butterbeans with canned mackerel in tomato sauce, 1 mug of red tea, 1 banana
Dinner - chicken grilled with jerk sauce, white rice and peas, 1 mug of red tea, 3/4 pint of water

Skincare/Makeup
water, toner and Moist AM and PM, talc

Sleep/Exercise

Comments
I found the croutons in the freezer, so we still have a little more bread to finish off
I've gone for a while without makeup but I don't think it has made any difference, the only changes I have noticed is slightly less oil and less acne on the upper cheeks. I don't think this is down to not wearing makeup
I measured my waist and hips and have lost a couple of inches on the waist and 1 from the hips since I last measured, so this takes me down to 0.68 ratio, but it looks like lower is healthier for women

The acne on the left side of my face is starting to get worse, I checked with last month and this is exactly what happened approx 14 days into the new cycle, so now I am sure it follows a pattern.

I find that scrubs break me out, but lately I've been having amazing results using clay as a mild exfoliant! Just plain grey kaolin clay mixed with manuka honey (I always use this as a mask at night anyways) and some tea tree oil. Most scrubs and exfoliants break me out, but my skin loves the clay. Using it for a few days has brought my skin back under control. Also it was like $10 for a huge paper bag of it.

One thing about your diet is look into the connection of citrus and acne breakouts. I was in denial about being sensitive to citrus fruits because I believe they're so good for us. After a week of eating quite a few mandarin oranges I couldn't deny it anymore, and had to cut them altogether after a bad cystic breakout.

Looking at your signature you follow so many of the same lifestyle patterns as I do! Plastic is the enemy, as are most chemicals. Have you looked any further into baking soda as a shampoo? I've been loving it since I started, my roots are healthier than ever, my hair is less frizzy, it's also softer and shinier. I have to say I'm shocked, I thought it would go downhill a bit in making the switch, but quite the opposite.

Keep up the healthy lifestyle, it looks like you're on a good path.
my regimen:

am
wash face+chest+back with UMF 16+ manuka honey
tone with chamomile lavender tea

pm
home made grey kaolin clay, manuka honey & tea tree oil mask for 30+ minutes
spot treat with 50/50 jojoba and tea tree oil

avoiding dairy, soy, high sodium, refined sugars, processed foods since September 2011. more recently peanuts, gluten and citrus as well.

I am 90-95% clear, and still improving.

Hi Jennifer, I am looking for clay to make my own mask at the moment! I was thinking clay, turmeric and tea tree oil. My skin is def better looking when using the scrub and mask.

With citrus I go back and forth over whether it is a problem for me. A few times I have noticed sneezing, sinus pain, and then at other times nothing. I think once my diet is under control I might be able to test citrus better. Possibly it is only certain types of citrus?

I tried the baking soda this morning but then I rinsed with water and lemon oil and I think I used too much lemon oil - hair ended up a bit greasy lol. I'm going to try again tomorrow so hopefully better luck.

I am really into the retro look so getting rid of plastic is fine by me! I have read a few things about plastic being linked to estrogen dominance so it was enough justification. Slowly phasing out plastic in the kitchen.

Thanks for your comments, I find your log interesting because you are looking at a whole holistic lifestyle rather than just dosing up on vitamins; it's good to see someone doing that, plus I can nick ideas off you. Posted Image

The breakout is dying down, no new spots so fingers crossed change is happening. It's 17 days into my new cycle so it should be getting worse at the moment. I'd be really happy if the changes I've made managed to control the acne I get before my period, because so far I've only noticed a difference with the day to day acne.

I actually think that it might just be certain types of citrus. I avoid citrus in general, but will make an exception when it's just a small amount of lemon.

My advice about the lemon oil, scrub it out as much as you can when you wash your hair tomorrow! I used olive oil wednesday, and my hair looked SO greasy wednesday and thursday. Friday and saturday were definitely greasy but not as bad. Finally today I was able to get it all out. You could also add tea tree oil to be baking soda when you try to get out the lemon oil, it boosts the cleaning power a bit. My friend who got me onto the baking soda always uses TTO with his baking soda as shampoo.

Yes, plastic can most definitely be linked to estrogen dominance, especially older plastic. This is mostly because of BPA. I'm not sure if BPA is banned where you live, but it's now banned in Canada. Newly manufactured plastic goods here are BPA free, but older plastics are full of it. Even BPA free plastic makes me wary. We've been using plastic for years and years and only recently discovered BPA being an issue, yet we've been ingesting it for such a long time! It makes me think that in a few months or years we'll discover something else harmful leeching out of our plastic goods. My main thing with plastic is boiling water into plastic (it makes me cringe), or anytime that it's heated up with food/drink in it. I've gotten my mom at least somewhat on board with this and switched my house over to glass containers, glass water jugs and a stainless steel kettle. I don't know if you've ever heard of KleanKanteen, but you should google them! They make an entirely plastic free water bottle, it's all stainless steel with a bamboo top. It has a silicone ring on the cap for water proofing, but this can even be removed.

My whole issue with chemicals is based on the same logic. There's no way of knowing what potentially toxic chemical interactions could be occurring from the many products that people in our society slather onto themselves. There's just simply not enough research out there. Someone's moisturizer could be having a bad reaction to their foundation that could lead to skin cancer, and not even know it until the damage has been done. I hate not knowing what's in the products I buy, so instead I buy ingredients and make my own "products".
my regimen:

am
wash face+chest+back with UMF 16+ manuka honey
tone with chamomile lavender tea

pm
home made grey kaolin clay, manuka honey & tea tree oil mask for 30+ minutes
spot treat with 50/50 jojoba and tea tree oil

Thanks for that rec - this is exactly the type of changes I want to make.

Re my hair - I wrapped my hair with a scarf and when I woke up the next morning a lot of the oil was gone luckily enough, and I reduced the amount I put on after that lol. When the lemon oil is finished I am going to try the tea tree oil. I think making sure you comb your hair through well seems to help prevent it getting too greasy/distributes the oil.

My hairdresser told me clay based products are good for styling fine hair because clay is lightweight; and I have found a few other more natural tips I want to try out.

I had to check this because I couldn't remember. A lot of companies over here now advertise BPA free but it's only banned from babies bottles. And yeah I know what you mean about other types of plastic, I don't want to be part of the generation that is testing all of this stuff out. Plus I don't like the fact that all the disposable plastics end up in my bin and then in the local dump. We had a new system of rubbish collection start last year and since then I've noticed just how much plastic is in our bin. We are getting better at reducing it though

I read once that white willow bark was a good natural source, I've seen that sold in capsule form and also as a tincture. Berries are also a good source as well I think. Posted Image

Cheers Paul, I read that it was used by people in the '40s to add to food to kill bacteria so I assumed there must be a more natural way.
