Saw the big fat man today!

And Santa was there, too....

I kid, I kid.


We had the use of my mother's car today, so went out early to get groceries. And to do a quick pick up of another Candida Cleanse from my chiropractor's office. The office was closed, but they left it in the front porch for me. How ironic is it that as I was leaving, I slipped on some wet wood, fell hard, and wrenched my foot? Now I need to go see my chip due to a visit to my chiro... *sigh* It'll work itself out. At least it's my other foot. But that other one, well, it's starting to act up again, too.

Then on to groceries. And I forgot the list. But lucky for me, I'd only compiled it this morning so remembered everything on it. Booyah!

Then, even though the boys were not having patient days and were getting feisty, we still decided to go see Santa. His photo hours started at 10 and I was anticipating a huge line-up when we got there at 10:30. But it wasn't too bad, maybe 15 people in front of us. Took nearly half an hour to get through. The boys tested their boundaries and toed all the lines, but we made it through. They were super excited to see Santa. Elliot ran up and gave him a huge hug and Felix told him over and over how much he LOVED trains.


Felix looks like a doofus, but it does capture their personalities quite well. Similar poses to last year, too. (Felix was trying to figure out why the photographer was shaking a box of Smarties at them.) Plus, they're both sick with colds, so all in all, a good day! While we were in line, Felix ran over to a man sitting on a bench and gave him a hug. Whoops - gotta curb Mr. Friendly before he gets stolen, I guess. Eep!

So yes, I'm doing another round of the Candida Cleanse. My energy levels are high right now and I want to keep them that way. But I'm still craving sugar like no one's business, so I know it's not out of my system yet.  I lost 5 lbs in the last 15 days, pretty much all of which was in the first week. I've also started jumping on my trampoline for 30 minutes every other night. (Should be doing that right now, but I'm tired.)

I'm totally off of my antidepressant now. But I've added in a homeopathic "wet blanket" that has been helping tamp down my crazy. I take 3 a day. Plus 4 probiotics. Plus an iron supplement 3 times. Plus my vitamins (4) twice a day. Add in the 2 candida pills twice a day, my birth control and the synthroid and I'm up to a whopping 24 pills per day. Holy guacamole!!! And I thought coming off the antidepressant would lessen the stuff I was putting in my body...

**And I forgot the antibiotics for strep throat that I'm taking 3x a day....

First, i LOVE the Santa picture. That may be one of the few Santa pictures I've ever seen in my life where the kids aren't crying. Obviously, your parenting is amazing.=)

Second, kudos to you for doing the cleanse! I was hoping you would post an update since you talked about it a while ago. Thanks for keeping us up to date on the progress!!

You've got me thinking really hard about going on the cleanse as well.

p.s. was it hard between day 5 and 15?

I was expecting the first week to suck, but it was fine as far as cravings went. But the second week? I was sick, the boys were sick, I was exhausted and all I wanted was sugar. Made it through, though!

I've started the new cleanse (it's recommended to do 2 in a row for problem cases), so hopefully in another 13 days I'll not be craving sugar as much. Day 1 was pretty bad, food wise. I think I ate half a pie. At least it was homemade - thanks, mom.

"Felix looks like a doofus" made me almost fall out of my chair. Darling, why don't I come here more often?
