What a fantastic day today, sunny, hot a bit of a breeze. We are going over to ds today to help him with some house repairs. I will visit with Thomas and maybe go in the pool with him, no idea what will transpire.
Today is the day we, ds and I start our 30 day paleo in earnest. I have trepidation and excitement as still having issues with what to make for meals. But will say I have been 2 wks totally without gluten and off almost all processed carbs. and my aches and pains are not as noticeable. I haven't been "down" lately and even though still getting my pins and needles and hip pain I don't feel as blah. Very well could have been the gluten along with the needless processed junk.
This morning is a full frypan of mixed veggies with 2 saugsages. I have to write out the NO foods so I can remember, some are only for the month then gradually re introduce them. So here I go......... as my page says it's not going to be easy....

Been busy today and this morning was reading the Paleo diet by robb wolf and didn't come on puter. It is nearly 4 pm and first time I have turned it on yet. Anyway been feeling good, my knee is not so bad, my pins and needles there but not as often. Only thing that has changed in the absensce of gluten and most carbs. I know that if it is a pinched nerve that won't change it, but perhaps the inflammation will decrease without the carbs and that helps all around.
I am primed to do the paleo with my son for 30 days to see. I know others have had great sucess with vegetarianism, but I also know I can't do it. Will be tough enough to find enough to eat with out anycarbs other than the ones from veggies. eeeek but the book gives full plans and ds is very good at this. His cooking school ( changed majors in university and wasn't sure so took a year community college cooking course).
Rain today, dull and rain and dd has gone to Moncton 3 hrs or so away for an outdoor concert. hope they took rain boots and jackets. YUK it is pouring, I know that closer to Moncton ( where our trailer is) it is thundering haven't any here yet.
Tomorrow finishing up the job I started yesterday, then cleaning up house. Monday after ds works, we are going over for hubby to help him with his downspouts. Okay best go and get a bit more done.
Oh read this and made me think of my mind over matter on my page-
psychoneuroimmunology - how the mind influences the immune system and vice versa has shown our thoughts are our reality for good or ill.
So mind over matter, attitude makes a difference has been my mantra. Even today when I did my unemployment and it said this was my last week when I am sure I was good till Sept 1. argh but will straighten it out Tues and we will survive. no sense worrying about it. and MOnday is holiday so can't call then.
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
HUGS have a great day!

I bought a new notebook today, wish I had gotten it last Tues. but that's okay. I haven't seen that much difference that if I start now it won't matter.
I am going back to writing what I have eaten, how my mood is, weather and my silly pains/feathers ect.
I know I can do it on spark and under my notes but find it easier for me to have it page by page.
Think I am going to try my hardest to do the 30 day paleo with ds. He is so anxious for me to try and hey can't hurt. I am not having any real die off from gf. so will see how this goes. Not sure I can do the strict one the entire 30 days but will try my best.
I should have gotten him a notebook too, but he will probably use his phone. lol
Had a good day today, not much pain or fluttering until now 7 pm. so thats pretty good. Was talking to a lady who had the nerve test done for Bells palsy and she said the needles you don't feel, but the current you will. she asked tell me, they said first time is like 1, 2nd is a 5 and the last is def. 10. So she said now you know you will feel it, but itsn't for long. I will survive like I have the rest of the stuff.
Going to go read the book I got from library about the paleo diet, it is written very user friendly and almost commical so better than a text book!

Well in such a good mood these past few days, will take it!!! I was on marks daily apple site and on their forum going to post about food and inflammation and a few questions when I read about a lady that had Miller Fisher variant of guillain barre syndrome. Now Caz not getting all worried just reading! LOL but the interesting thing is the pins and needles ect start at the extremities and go up and also can have a droppy eyelid which I do. hmmm just want to know things cos don't want to blindly follow drs and what they say. My dr is great but not into anything naturapathic, homeopathic ect. and seems to get very put out when asked about anything diff. so. just keeping my eyes open and able to ask questions.
Going to go get hubby up, he didn't get the grass mowed so will do it this am, after his 1 tv show. he has cut his watching by 90% but uses the puter oh well was doing both at once. lol
back later not much done yet, so far today pins and n. are minimal. cya!

yea yea I know Jude suck it up. I don't think anyone realizes how terrified I am of needles, more than anything, I would bungee jump rather than needles.
Anyway for some reason, this eve have been very calm, quiet, and reflective. Been deleting a lot of blogs, who needs them, mostly blah, down, or just a day comment. The ones I have kept are uplifting, or a change in something or a revelation. But 165 pages OMG. anyway getting there.
At this time I am not even thinking of my tests, or anything, more wanting to know. I have been on puter too long without moving and have had pins and needles in foot, feather/hair whatever feeling on my leg, and slightly on other leg and not sure but thought my R arm. argh now that is nerve wracking and a tad scarey. but will deal with whatever cos what other choice is there!
Okay it is 12:35 and I MUST get off here and rest.
HUGS good morning/eve whatever!
