Today I am up .2 which I did not expect but I added a special drink I love and that must have been it. Oh well, I will have fish and greens tonight which was a big hit for my tummy last time, hopefully I will lose on that...I want to get into that next digit down on the scale and I keep shying from it by a measly little .0....ugh.
I am on a journey to learn more about autoimmune diseases, which tend to run in families, so I can help my sweet little damsel. I need to have myself and the man checked out as well. I am learning how these are all related and that having one leads to more etc...I guess 20% of the population has a autoimmune disease and most of those are women!!
Did you know this sweet girl has been diagnosed with a autoimmune disease? Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Here body is attacking her own thyroid!! Why is my precious girl's body doing this? She must have had this last year and we didn't even know it. It came to light this summer and I will share that story soon.
Did you know that I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia years ago but always questioned if I actually had it? I have recently discovered that frequent urination and plantar fasciitis is one of many symptoms! Pregnancy's can trigger these things and I can look back remember how much worse I was after the birth of a child. This may be why woman have a higher incidence overall of AI.
We are in week 3 of Essentials and week 5 of Challenge A. Things are moving smoothly for the most part, but very fully! I love the thinking education of Classical Conversations. I am looking forward to creating my book list for the year that I try to stick to as best we can, but it usually is longer than can be managed. If I am able I will post here sometime.
We do Foundations at home with Damsel since she is older and this is her second year, we have tweaked it to fit her 7th grade level and we are preparing for her to be in Challenge A next year. Very excited. I am planning on tutoring that lever next year.
